Harvest is our go to restaurant when we want to up the notch a bit. Our servers were prompt, solved some food questions/problems, were gracious and knowledgeable and friendly. The food was very good and the pace of each course was done well. However, I ordered the Coconut Creme Pie for dessert and was disappointed in what I was served....it was an homage to the classic dessert but missed the mark by being generally not tasking of the classic dessert and being too busy...too many elements on the plate.
On the other hand the lobster bisque was luscious and our cocktails fresh and summery. My husband ordered a cocktail off menu and there was no problem.
It was a delightful evening though I wish the Harvest would change its menu more often
We will return!

We come to Harvest again and again because it's always a wonderful experience. Always something new and interesting on the menu, so we try each other's dishes and learn some things we might want to do when we're cooking at home. Always fresh, always exciting, always a great evening.

The waiter felt very hurried, not a relaxing feeling; abrupt, had to be called over a few times.

Harvest was wonderful. The food did not disappoint. The dessert was tremendous! The only negative was we had requested to sit on the patio - this was actually the reason we chose the restaurant. Upon arriving however, we were told the entire space was reserved for a private party. I wish they had told us ahead of time because we simply
would have picked a different night to dine there. As it was, it was too late to change our minds when we were told because we were already there.

On a recent night, our top two seafood selections from the menu were already sold out by 7:45 p.m. However, what we did choose was rather tasty. It was a perfect night for back patio dining, and there was a jazzy, electric feeling in the air. We had a good time that evening at the Harvest. Happy birthday to my husband!

My salmon was dried out, waitress pushy and inauthentic, but the patio is enjoyable and uncrossed, so at least we could stay for hours.

I love Harvest—from the cafe menu in the bar, to the full menu in the main restaurant, and the cookbook author special events. The food is always delicious, beautifully plated, and graciously served. And Kelly is the best bartender ever! Oh, and Joshua should have won first place in the “Best Baker in America” competition. Whether for lunch, drinks, dinner, or brunch, Harvest is a great choice.

We went to the Harvest for brunch and to celebrate my husband’s birthday. I had requested in the reservation a candle in his dessert. In other restaurants where I had requested the same online for other birthdays, I was disappointed that my request was not honored. Very happy to say the Harvest had the candle ready! The food was delicious. We both had the cucumber and avocado cold soup, delicious, I then had the quiche and my husband the smoked salmon eggs Benedict. Both excellent. We shared the raspberry panacotta. We had a lovely brunch. The service was excellent. Highly recommend!

Our group of 8 had a lovely evening at Harvest starting with a quiet table in the back room as the rainy weather made the terrace unusable. One member of our group requested salmon (not even on the menu) and this was provided promptly without any fuss at all. The food was interesting and perfectly prepared, excellent friendly and well-trained servers, too! Highly recommended!!

Always enjoy eating at Harvest. This time was no exception. The only reason it's not five stars is because service was slow; maybe not enough waiters, because there were not very many customers at the time we were there.

We loved our dinner. Delicious food, wonderful service. The carrot appetizers and french fries were amazing as were all of our entrees. We ended up not having enough room for dessert but all of them
sounded delicious. It is a beautiful restaurant with a peaceful, quiet ambiance. Loved it. Great place
for dinner before a show at the A.R.T. or a romantic evening or anytime at all.
