Fantastic food! Service was excellent and food was so delicious!
We've very much enjoyed our visits to the Harvest over several decades. It's always been a wonderful dining experience. We were a bit disappointed recently in that the menu was not as eclectic as in the past. It seemed less special but we hope that post covid, the Harvest will return to being the special place in the Cambridge area.
Hi John, Thank you very much for your continued support at Harvest. I appreciate the detailed feed back in your private message and I will be sure to share it with our culinary team. I apologize your experience was not up to our usual high standards and I sincerely hope you will give us another try on your next visit to Cambridge. We hope to see you again soon!! Best, Mike
The server this time was great. Can't remember her name but you could tie that in with our reservation. Food, as usual, is wonderful. Love the bacon with the Harvest Breakfast.
This has historically been a great spot so maybe we had an off night. My pasta arrived cold. After two bites I sent it back. It also was not tasty. They offered to warm it up (which sounded like a bad idea) or give me a new one. I just took a pass. My husband's fish was good. Service was indifferent. The place was relatively empty but our waiter was hard to find. Perhaps they were short due to covid. My husband order two scoops of ice cream - they were the size of golf balls. Seemed little spare given the prices. We will try again but if the next time is anything like this last time, we won't be back.

Great food, service, and atmosphere. I highly recommend for special occasions or for relaxed time with family and friends.
Hi Alice, Thank you for your compliments. We look forward to seeing you again soon!!! Best, Mike
We were greeted by or you ready to order rather than hello or small talk or introduction to the restaurant. Even my teenage son noticed this. The fish and scallops I had had salmon and the skin of the fish have scales on it. I generally like crispy skin on fish but not the scales. It seem like the restaurant was affected by the pandemic so I did not complain. The soup and shell salad were perfectly fine . the rigatoni was very starchy and did not taste good for fresh pasta. I really wanted to love this restaurant but they are clearly suffering from mediocre service and food as well currently. I spent $170 and had one glass of champagne and the food as stated above. I still tip 20% in the spirit of the pandemic and helping out the restaurant. But unless there’s a big change in service and food I will not be back.

Really great experience at a place that has stood the rest of time. Complimentary courses really enhanced the overall experience. Loved the gnocchi n rabbit, and my wife love
Hi Joshua, Thank you for your compliments, I am happy to hear you and your wife enjoyed your experience at Harvest. We hope to see you again soon!! Best, Mike

Hi Ted, Thank you very much for your kind words. I am glad to hear you enjoyed your lunch on the patio. Our patio will remain open, weather permitting, all winter long as well as indoor dining. We hope you will choose Harvest again soon!! Best, Mike
We thoroughly enjoyed the lunch/brunch. The dishes were all delicious though, for the entry Bourbon Glazed Hanger Steak I was disappointed with the nearly raw broccoli. Service was superb. The main reason for my not giving 5 stars is the dessert. For $12+tip=$15, I was disappointed to get only one TINY scoop of plain vanilla ice cream.
Hi Jim, Thank you very much for your feedback and compliments. I am happy to hear that you enjoyed your experience at Harvest. I am sorry to hear about your dessert, it sounds like you may have accidentally received the wrong dish, a full order of our house made ice cream should have been three full scoops. I apologize for any mix-up and I hope you will will give us another try sometime soon. Best, Mike
Quince cocktail was divine. Acorn squash was to die for. Staff was so friendly and warm. Will be back!
Hi Daphne, Thank you very much for you compliments. I appreciate you taking the time to send your feedback and I'm happy to hear you enjoyed your experience at Harvest. See you soon!!! Best, Mike
We dined at brunch. I looked forward to dining at Harvest. I had a very high expectation. I had the eggs benedict with salmon. I didn't think the house made salmon went well with the overall taste of the benedict. The brioche french toast was good. It was not soggy but it lacked taste. My husband had the burger. He said it was okay.
Hi Irene, Thank you very much for your feedback, I will be sure to share it with our culinary team. I am sorry to hear you did not fully enjoy the French toast that replaced your benedict and happy to know your husband seemed to enjoy his burger. I appreciate that you would recommend Harvest to others and i sincerely hope you will give us another try. We hope to see you again soon!! Best, Mike
I really enjoyed the experience from the attentive welcome, to the well dressed staff, the elegant room, the well presented and prepared food. I would certainly return for a special dinner or brunch. Thank you for keeping excellent standards during such challenging times.
Hi Nadia, Thank you for your kind words. I am happy to hear your visit was great from start to finish. I hope you will choose Harvest for your next special celebration!! Best, Mike
The food was great, but the orange juice was absolutely terrible and was not fresh squeezed.
Hi there, Thank you very much for your feedback. I am glad to hear you enjoyed your meals at Harvest. I am sorry to hear that you did not like the orange juice. I hope you will join us again soon and try our fresh squeezed lemonade or fresh brewed iced tea. Thank you for your support and we hope to see you soon!!! Best, Mike
The food was delicious, Service was great. Beautifully decorated. Tables were a little close for Covid dining. This restaurant is expensive!
Hi Lisa, Thank you very much for your feedback. We hope to see you again soon, Happy New Year!! Best, Mike
Great for New Year’s Eve
This is a wonderful place for an outside lunch in Cambridge. They were very attentive and accommodating. And the food was excellent.
Hi Wendy, Thank you very much for your compliments. I am happy to hear you enjoyed your lunch on the patio. Weather permitting, our patio will be open all winter. We hope to see you again soon!! Best, Mike
We were at Harvest for dinner, to celebrate my daughter’s engagement. The food was terrific and although staff was clearly limited the service was friendly and responsive. We were pleasantly surprised to receive a complimentary dessert beautifully plated with a big “congratulations” message. I have been to Harvest many times over the years and am happy to say it is still a wonderful choice.
Hi there, Thank you very much for your compliments. Congratulations on your daughters engagement and thank you for choosing Harvest for your celebration. We hope to see you again soon!! Best, Mike

Hi Jacquie, Thank you very much for your compliments. I am glad you enjoyed our outdoor patio. Weather permitting, it will be open all winter. We hope to see you again soon!! Best, Mike
Harvest did not disappoint. Our favorite appetizers were the cheddar and pears…the charred cheddar with the sweet pears, wonderful, the pickled herring was awesome and the cheese assortment…each if the three wonderful with the apple buttered toast. We ordered the duck and the strip loin, both absolute perfection! Broccoli rab was delicious. Each side dish complimented the protein beautifully. But the desserts were truly unbelievable. The eggnog creme brûlée with cranberry sorbet, fantastic, the chocolate do is cake with maple ice cream decadent, the brown butter quince tarte tatin with manchego ice cream, heavenly but the buche de Noel was both delightful in appearance and flavor. The blood or ace ice cream, divine! Excellent from the first bite to the very last!
Hi there, Thank you very much for all your detailed compliments!!! I am glad to hear you enjoyed all of your food courses as well as the service. We hope to see you again soon!! Best, Mike
A+ service, would definitely recommend
Service and food were incredible!!
Birthday cake was amazing
Nice to return to a wonderful lunch after an absence of many months. A delight.
Hi George, Nice to have you back!!! I am happy to hear you enjoyed your recent visit. We hope to see you again soon!!! Best, Mike
Server(s) came by too often to check how everything was. I felt it was too interruptive.
Hi there, Thank you very much for your feedback, I will be sure to share it with our server team. I am glad to see that you enjoyed your food and we hope to see you again soon!! Best, Mike
Food was amazing, especially the espresso ice cream dessert! We sat outside on the mostly enclosed heated patio. It was 30F outside and okay out on the patio with the gas-fired heaters on the ceiling. I was comfortable in my winter jacket and my husband was fine without a jacket. There was a large opening in the center patio ceiling and around the top sides of the patio, so I felt comfortable with the air flow that I had significantly lowered my COVID risk compared to eating inside. Perfect balance of delicious food, comfort, and safety. Oh, and the wait staff were excellent!
Hi there, Thank you very much for your compliments. I am happy to hear you felt comfortable on our patio and you enjoyed the food and service. Weather permitting, our patio will be open right through the winter. We hope to see you again soon!! Best, Mike
Generally great food and atmosphere. Everything was super fresh (as one would expect based on the theme).
Hi Todd, Thank you very much for your feedback. We hope to see you again soon!! Best, Mike
We love Harvest. It’s a special restaurant that we go to once or twice a year. We were there to celebrate my wife’s 52nd birthday. The Gnocchi with rabbit appetizer was delicious. My wife had the wild mushroom Papardelle, which was very good as well. The strip loin and especially Hesselbeck potato were both very ordinary and overpriced for the flavor and plate experience. The deserts we ordered were unfortunate at best. The service while very friendly and professional was too inattentive based solely upon our previous dining experiences at Harvest. I had to ask for our plates to be cleared. That doesn’t happen there. The ambiance and evening was wonderful and we enjoyed being there, but our meal was not to the standard set from previous meals. I really hope to be blown away again in the spring when the menu and restaurant really comes to life.
Hi there, Thank you very much for your feedback, I will be sure to share it with our culinary team. As you stated in your review, our standards for food and service are very high at Harvest and I apologize that we did not hit all the marks during your experience. I am happy to see that you did enjoy the ambience and your time with us. I also would like to thank you for choosing Harvest for your special celebration and I hope you will do so again soon. Best, Mike
Lovely atmosphere. Delicious food.
Great place! Initially sat in the room with the fireplace, which was a bit loud. So moved near the bar, which was more open and quieter. Food was amazing. Service was excellent. Great vibe and will definitely go again!
Hi there, Thank you very much for your compliments. I am happy to hear we were able to seat you in a comfortable spot. We hope to see you again soon!! Best, Mike
Excellent food and service.
We came to celebrate our anniversary on lunch date because we have little kids. The waitress (Tomara) brought our "happy anniversary surprise" to the another table and asked them if woman's name is aleksandra. The answer was "no", but the plate was already on the table , so I guess that couple wrote a good review. Then waitress looked at us and just brought us a check...I assumed she thought that we can't have anniversary bc of such a big age difference.
Hi Aleksandra, Thank you very much for your feedback. I am glad to hear that you enjoyed your food and the ambience of the restaurant. I apologize for the confusion with your celebratory dessert and will be sure to review this mistake with your server as well as our front desk team. We appreciate you choosing Harvest for your anniversary and I am truly sorry for the miscommunication. We hope you will come back and give us another try soon. Sincerely, Mike
Lovely food. Toasty warm outdoor patio (all season).
Hi Ellie, Thank you for your compliments and I am glad to hear you enjoyed our heated patio. Weather permitting we will keep it open right through the winter. We hope to see you again soon!! Best, Mike
we only had lunch but the choices were varied, the service was excellent and the food outstanding. I wish we could have stayed longer and enjoyed a drink at the bar.
looking forward to our next visit. Highly recommended !
Hi Bruce, Thank you for your compliments, we wish you could have stayed as well!!! We look forward to seeing you again soon!! Best, Mike
The food was not melt in your mouth yet the prices were very high. Small pasta plate portions at $35-40 very expensive.

The Sunday brunch we had was delicious. I had the Brioche French toast with a side of delicious sausage and my partner had the Kale , apple & Squash Salad with a side of Salmon.
