It was my daughter's birthday and I requested seating near the fireplace. They accommodated my requests and the service was impeccable. This was our first visit, but not our last!

Enjoyed a weekday lunch on Harvest’s Patio. Tables are spaced comfortably apart, and there are heaters directly over each table, so it was not necessary to huddle in our parkas. Between the three of us, we ordered two burgers - one beef and the other “impossible” - and salmon. Thumbs up for both burgers, and the fries were hot, crisp and delicious. The salmon was also delicious - cooked perfectly. Before the meal, we were served molasses bread (I believe) with butter. It was superb - moist and spicy. Knowing that the pastry chef who baked the bread was also responsible for dessert, we all wished to order dessert (all of which looked great!), but will have to wait for the next time. And there will be a next time!

Harvest is a great place. I went with my friends for brunch. The service was impeccable and the ambiance is beautiful. The food left a little to be desired the savory eclair was too salty and the egg Benedict with crab was a bit bland it needed a little something else. The mimosa was ample and the dessert was good

We sat outdoors for lunch on a windy, frigid day and were toasty warm! Between the fire place and the overhead heat lamps, we didn’t even need our coats. The food and service were top notch, as always.

Indoor and outdoor (with space heaters) seating available. My friend and had the burger and lobster roll from the late lunch menu. Both were delicious. I hadn't had fries and a burger that good all year!

Also the eggnog cocktail is great, coming from someone that doesn't usually like non-alcoholic eggnog.

Great mix of outdoor and indoor. The Harvest has a very nice outdoor patio, one of the best in the area, that also blends into the dining room seamlessly. The crowd was light, so we had fast service, felt safe, and the food was excellent as usual.

The food was tasty and plentiful. I particularly like the locally sourced Harvest Burger and my wife enjoyed her Salmon dish. There is a large outdoor seating space which can be covered, perfect for a 70 degree day. I recommend this restaurant for those who want a quiet place to escape the hustle-bustle of Harvard Square.
