Harvest is such a special place for us! We had our going-away brunch for our wedding here last year and were taken such good care of that we go back for special occasions like our anniversary on Sunday. The manager remembers us and the service and food remain excellent, they even comp’d our desserts! Love this place and can’t say enough.
Thank you so much Tom! Your just as special to us. We look forward to your next visit! Jeff O GM Harvest
Excellent dinner with girlfriends. Delicious food, and a server who was super kind about reminding us we had limited time if we wanted to make our show (we were headed to the theater). All around great experience for us!
Thank you so much Lisa! Jeff O GM Harvest
I love – truly love – this restaurant. I have always found the interior to be extremely elegant (in a casual way) and comfortable. The menu is beautifully designed, with just the right number of choices, and every dish I have ever had has been marvelously prepared. The red fish, haddock and porchetta we ordered were no exception - all superbly prepared, as were our firsts (pork belly, sweet corn panna cotta) and desert (eclairs).
While we have not had significant service issues in the past, I will say that the service this visit was a little manic. Being at a table in the center of the room may have had something to do with this, But it felt as if there were servers of every description swirling around us the entire time, in some instances removing things that have just been placed. The manager took our order, and when it was served, not one of the three dishes was placed in front of the right person. Don’t get me wrong: this didn’t really affect our meal or diminish our love of Harvest, but I think it’s worth mentioning because you’re paying $250 for three people.
Love. This. Place.
Thank you so much, your feedback is very important to us and I appreciate you taking the time to write this review. I love that you love Harvest! We look forward to your next visit and to making sure you have a great experience. Thank you, Jeff O GM Harvest
Delicious. Sat outside. Very pleasant. They were aware that most people were seeing a show at 730 and were very efficient.
Thank you Deborah!! Jeff O GM Harvest
It's just a very reliable, very pleasant restaurant with good food and good service. That's why it has been around for so long.
Thank you!!! Jeff O GM Harvest
Lovely waitress, lovely setting, quiet. Food "pretty" good, some dishes were better than others. We enjoyed ourselves and felt comfortable and welcome. We will be back.
Thank you Pamela, we're glad you had a good time and we look forward to your next visit! Jeff O GM Harvest
This place has amazing food, great staff, and nice ambience.
Thank you Brice! We are so glad to have you dine with us. Jeff O GM Harvest
Great food and great atmosphere!
Thank you Nathaniel! Jeff O GM Harvest
We always stay in Cambridge for the night when we transition between the Vineyard and San Francisco. We have tried other restaurants over the years but always come back to Harvest.
Thank you so much Sara! Jeff O GM Harvest
Great service and ambiance!!! Definitely worth a visit. We started with a charcuterie platter, the cheeses were spectacular, especially the blue cheese. My husband had a seafood dish with scallops and loved it. I had the salmon special with crab, really good. We were stuffed but had to try dessert, we got the eclairs, I think they called the reclairs, very good!
Thank you so much Kat21!! Jeff O GM Harvest
Classic menu and wine list that just gets better and better.
Thank you for dining with us David!! Jeff O GM Harvest
The innovative choices on the menu made an interesting change from the approach that many chefs take. The salmon dish was particularly good.
Thank you so much Pete!! Jeff O GM Harvest
The chicken in the quick luncheon special was overcooked
Thank you for your feedback Delilah please ask for me your next visit when making your reservation so I can make sure everything is perfect. Jeff O GM Harvest
It was an excellent restaurant. The food was superb, the service was great and the ambiance was glorious. We will definitely come back.
Thank you so much David!! Jeff O GM Harvest
I remember when Harvest opened and I couldn't afford it. Now I can and it has held up very well.
Thank you! Jeff O GM Harvest
Great ambience and everyone was very pleasant, but service was slow despite their reassurances that they would get us right out the door for our 7:30 PM show (we had 6 PM reservations). Also the food was not special. My duck was gamey, which was a first for me in a fine dining establishment. Not recommended.
Thank you for taking the time to write this review. I would appreciate the opportunity to talk more about your experience. Please contact me at the restaurant at 617-868-2255. I look forward to speaking with you. Jeff Osowski GM Harvest
We had a wonderful late afternoon brunch/lunch. The food was delicious, and the service attentive . We sat on the patio. It was open air, but not open to the street, so it felt very private, like a backyard party, but without the insects. Just what we wanted. Our party of four all agreed, we would return again soon. It is now on our list of go-to places.
But be forewarned. Parking is a bit tricky. Cambridge has a pay by phone app, which takes 6 minutes to download on the street by the meter, get through all the menu screens and personal info requests. But alas, it doesn't matter because in the end, the system doesn't provide up to date info to the parking police, so they ticket you anyway.
Thank you so much!! We also validate a few dollars off your parking at University Place garage, Charles Hotel Garage and the Harvard Square garage. Jeff O GM Harvest
We have gone to Harvest many times over many years. This visit was disappointing. The food was mediocre and the service was too. Long wait for food, our server disappeared for long stretches, we had to ask for basics like cutlery when we got new courses, and most of the food was not up to usual standards. We will return because we know this is not what Harvest is usually like but if it had been our only visit, we would not return.
Thank you for taking the time to write this review. Im sorry to read about your experience and would appreciate the opportunity to speak with you in more detail. I'll be sending you a private message with my contact information so we can connect. I look forward to hearing from you. Jeff O GM Harvest
Excellent all around, as always. The Dine Out Boston menu was very reasonably priced, and absolutely delicious.
Thank you!! Jeff O GM Harvest
Great restaurant. Especially the food and wait staff.
Thank you so much Holly!! Jeff O GM Harvest
Harvest is a trusted old standby, nice atmosphere, good service, usually good food. On this occasion, I thought the porchetta was pretty rough.
Thanks for your feedback ErnestG, it always helps. I'll be sure to review it with Chef Tyler!! Thank you, Jeff O GM Harvest
It has been a few years since we were last at Harvest and it was just as good as we remembered it to be. Our 11 year old daughter was with us and the food appealed to her as well.
Thank you so much! Im glad we were a hit with your daughter too. :) Jeff O GM Harvest
We ate outdoors which was lovely. The food was excellent and beautifully presented. Servers were attentive. All in all a relaxing, enjoyable dinner.
Thank you Michelle!! Jeff O GM Harvest
Harvest is always reliable for excellent dining, service and ambiance.
Thank you so much!! Jeff O GM Harvest
Ate at The Harvest for the lst time in many years this week on the outdoor patio, and it did not disappoint! Everything was excellent. Congratulations for having an well trained waitstaff. ... Helpful and professional and polite. Loved eating outdoors! And having heat lamps, they can serve well into Winter!! Will definitely return in the near future and recommend to friends
Thank you! Yes, the patio heat lamps are cozy!! I'm glad you had a good time. Jeff O GM Harvest
We chose this restaurant for a birthday lunch during move in day. We ordered from the three course menu. Excellent food! We loved sitting outside on the patio. Now we have a place to go for a wonderful meal when visiting our son.
Thank you! We look forward to having you back. Please ask for me your next visit, I'd love to say hi. Jeff O GM Harvest
We loved this dining experience. If we lived locally, we would come all the time. Have already recommended it to friends if they happen to be in the cambridge area.
Thank you so much!!! Jeff O GM Harvest
Harvest never disappoints. I’ve been enjoying the restaurant for years. Thank you Harvest for maintaining the high quality of food, atmosphere and service that makes you a perennial stand out.
Thank You SandyM!! Jeff O GM Harvest
I had two meals at Harvest in the past two weeks. One was a weeknight business dinner with clients, which featured outstanding seafood and friendly, attentive service. The second meal was Sunday brunch, which was horrible, including a server who was entirely absent once we ordered. I have enjoyed this restaurant for years, but the brunch experience was so bad that I wouldn't go again for any meal. The place is obviously slipping.
Im sorry to read about your experience and would appreciate the opportunity to speak with you in more detail. I'll be sending you private message with my contact information so we can connect. I look forward to hearing from you. Jeff O GM Harvest
Going to the Harvest is a great treat! Excellence in every category! We loved our last lunch there!
Thank you! Jeff O GM Harvest
This was a lunch with a friend who was about to go away for a year. We ate outdoors on a lovely day. The seasonal specials attracted us, as did the tasty wines and delicious desserts. The service was wonderful, and we look forward to meeting there again in a year for lunch.
Thank you so much! Jeff O GM Harvest
My favorite restaurant in the Boston area. Consistently good!
Thank you Laura!!! That means a lot to us. Jeff O GM Harvest
First time there and it was fantastic. Highly recommend!
Thank You!!! Jeff O GM Harvest
We went to Harvest for dinner in mid-August, so Cambridge is emptier than usual, as was the restaurant, which we found very pleasant. The service was excellent, attentive but not overpowering. All our food was very good - tasty, creative and fresh. We particularly liked the creamy chicken pate, a scallops and redfish entree and a delicious chocolate eclair with whipped caramel-flavored topping. It was altogether a very pleasant experience.
Thank you so much for taking the time to write this review!! Jeff O GM Harvest
Great service. The foie gras parfait was to die for.
Thank you SwissMiss!! Chef Tyler Kinnett will be happy to read your review of his foie gras.. :) Jeff O GM Harvest
Another delicious meal at Harvest! Fresh ingredients, delicious flavors and a nice place to visit with friends. We were outside for lunch on Friday. There is some construction outside the restaurant so a bit of noise but never so much that we couldn't hear. Highly recommend. An oasis.
Thank you so much Susan! I'm glad you were able to enjoy the patio. Jeff O GM Harvest
Delicious fennel and cucumber gazpacho. So cool and inviting with it’s pale green color and creamy texture. A garnish of fresh, halved cherries was a surprisingly good accompaniment.
The jumbo shrimp cocktail was simply visually amazing and very tasty. Served with a zesty horseradish cocktail sauce it made a lovely, light main course.
The service was gracious, friendly and well paced.
Thank you for your review Cheryl! Jeff O GM Harvest
