Attended for Dine out Boston- menu offering was not outstanding but tasty. Ambience was nice with outdoor seating. Service could have been better. Waiter was a little clumsy and apologetic. I would try it again.
The meal was fabulous. My husband and I debated on who’s meal was better. I had the halibut and he had the seafood medley. We sat outside and it was lovely. The service was attentive without being overwhelming. Would definitely go back again
Delicious from start to finish. Excellent selection of fresh oysters. Steak was sublime as was halibut. Dessert was some almond berry deliciousness that we practically licked the plate. Nice ambiance in room where you can have a conversation. Will definitely return!
Great hamburger & fries, always. But the current heirloom tomato salad is superb.
The Dine Out Boston feast was absolutely delicious! Service terrific. Great evening out with friends.
Overpriced and pretentious menu. Not exactly top notch service for a $100 a person evening out.
I had major gastro-intestinal distress later that night into the next day. Food was heavy, overly rich and way too pricey.
Deserves its sterling reputation. A bit pricey but a good place to indulge
Harvest remains our favorite restaurant in the Boston area. We've been dining here on special occasions for the past 37 years. They continue to innovate with delicious takes on everything. The service and ambiance are both excellent as well. Kudos to the excellent Harvest team!
The service at brunch was subpar, food was cooked wrong, and menu was too small.
We were celebrating our friends' 25th anniversary, and our server Colleen could not have been more attentive, warm and enthusiastic.
Superb and unusually good dishes, great wait staff, and pleasant atmosphere. Ben and Jane, the founders would be proud!
Year after year Harvest manages to be current and maintain the highest standards of service and food.
Every time I come to Cambridge I make sure I stop by Harvest. The food is amazing and the service is equally amazing!
Hadn’t been to the Harvest in a while and after this I will be back soon!
Wanted to go for a long time. Food was heavy, even the lighter fare items. Wine list could have been more extensive. Service was attentive and informative.
My salad looked like a work of art, almost too beautiful to eat, but was equally delicious. The freshest of berries combined with beets and radicchio was light, filling and different. Every plate is delivered showing care and inspiration. What a wonderful spot for old friends to get together.
Perfect birthday celebration! Harvest never disappoints.
Staff was incredibly friendly and down to earth and went out of their way to make our kids smile. Wonderful food and perfect ambiance. Thanks for a great meal!
A lovely extravagance for our anniversary -- exceptional food and excellent service.
Harvest is arguably the best restaurant in Harvard Square and consistently meets expectations. Our only criticism of our recent visit was the frequency of server interruptions during conversation. Their effort to be attentive seemed overdone, especially since different servers arrived, asking the same questions. But, attentive service should be something other restaurants aspire to do better -- take this constructive criticism with a grain of salt ;)
It was good, but not as good as usual. Soup ran out. Service was slow getting started. Otherwise fine. I like Harvest.
Walking around Harvard Square, we stumbled on the Harvest sign on Brattle St. After looking in the windows and checking the menu display, we thought a reservation was in order. What a delightful surprise in a number of regards. The presentations were wonderful and excited our appetites, and each dish was creatively conceived and executed. Need I say that they were all delicious? We'll be back next time we're in the Boston area.
While I enjoyed my meal..my husband who is vegetarian was a bit disappointed. We had looked at the menu on the their website and were very excited to see several interesting veggie options. However that was the not the case. Our server explained that they had not updated the online menu. We felt a little tricked..as one of the reasons we chose Harvest was because of the vegetarian options. Oh well! We were there now! The dessert ( strawberry and yuzu) left us a little underwhelmed!! But I really enjoyed my meal.
Excellent drinks and food, perfect service, nice room.
Beautiful outdoor patio! Great food! Great service! A bit pricey !
The food and service were outstanding. I am vegan and they did a great job accommodating me.
We enjoyed a really good dinner here. Having just come from the Harvard Art Museums a short walk away, we arrived before seating began. So we had interesting cocktails at the bar. They initially wanted to seat us outside, but my wife thought it a bit chilly, so they kindly accommodated us indoors. We started with the seafood tower, which differs from most in that it included two composed crudo dishes. My wife's sea bass, a special, and my halibut, new to the menu, were perfectly prepared. Lots of ingredients on each plate, but they all made sense. The sommelier was helpful in choosing an interesting Riesling. This place has been here for years. We've walked by it more than once. So many missed opportunities that we'll try to make up for.
Delicious food, nice atmosphere, quiet. Great place for a couple or friends to enjoy each other’s company and indulge in the well prepared food. A bit pricey but worth the splurge.
Harvest never disappoints. A Harvard Sq icon, it provides understated service and creative, delicious cuisine. Highly recommended for any occasion.
Lunching at the Harvest was a real treat.
The attention, the service and the food made it a memorable occasion, and one that I look forward to repeat.
I had a colleague from out of town visit Cambridge recently and wanted to be sure to take him out for a good meal. Harvest was just the right spot. We went out on the first night of his visit to the Boston area. The food at Harvest has set the bar high for the rest of his dining experiences in the area!
Un restaurant super sympa. L’accueil a été chaleureux. La nourriture excellente. Nous avons déjeuné dans le patio, très agréable.
Lovely setting. Terrific brunch. Service was attentive and helpful. Would definitely go back, as well as refer to friends.
Took our 22 year old granddaughter here for dinner. She recently moved to Boston from New Jersey, to work at Harvard. We took her to the Museum of Fine Arts and then here to dinner....as she lives nearby in Somerville. She is a vegetarian and the waiter was most helpful in requesting a change to an existing menu item that included veal, be changed to ALL vegetables. she was thrilled with the results. My husband and I also enjoyed our meals very much. Love the menu....will have to come back since there were other dishes we wanted to explore.
The patio is wonderful. Just a comfortable non pretentious place but classy
Have visited many times of the years and always enjoyed everything. The service, waiters etc, were terrific. Unusual menu, a little rich, possibly would like to see just one simple dish.
Excellent food, service, ambiance, BUT received an email afterwards saying I would not receive Open Table points with no explanation why! Open Table should have stipulated this before I made reservations
We had Sunday brunch for my mother’s birthday here yesterday, and sat on the patio. It was a little loud, only because there was a giant party at a big table nearby. That notwithstanding, it was an excellent experience. Our waiter was fantastic - sensitive to a food allergy issue, attentive, and even going so far to correctly identify the birthday girl based on my slipping her her birthday card. He brought out a celebratory dessert with a candle. He really made the experience!
The food was excellent and fresh. Highly recommend!
