The food was excellent- we all enjoyed our choices and our waiter very attentive given that they are a bit short staffed. We really enjoyed the meal and the ambiance. It was a bit noisy because it was so full but to be fair we have not heard noise for a while so it might just be the sound of conviviality.

This was a perfect place to bring international visitors for conversation, lovely setting, and wonderful food. Each dish was excellent and tastefully presented. I credit the Harvest with the ambiance that made our first meeting with these new friends a success!

I love this restaurant, and I come often. But because I do come often, it would be lovely if the menu could be expanded. I remember the quinoa salad of some years ago was delicious and light, for example....

Wonderful perfect spot by the fireplace. First time reunion since watching my son and DIL get married on Zoom in Hawaii so very special! Waitress was awesome! Food was Delish! Only problem was parking and then funding restaurant down the walkway in the cold rain. Located away from the street in a mall type area. Will go again next Mass visit!

Rainy and chilly day and we had been at the Red Sox game just prior. We were offered the patio outside since the restaurant was not close to full. Likely the weather kept folks home plus this was the first day of relaxed restrictions. What a wonderful experience and no masks in sight. The super nice hostess sat my daughter and me at a table directly in front of a roaring fireplace on the patio. Between the fireplace and the warm ceiling heaters, we were toasty. We had a very complete meal and it did not dissapoint. The oysters were fresh good sized. Our wait person recommended the more popular ones that were slightly larger. The cremert cheese dish with pistachio nuts, fig jam, strawberries and toasted bread was amazing! I had the lobster with homemade pasta entre and my daughter had the rissoto with spinach, black enoki, and morels. We shared a bit and both were wonderful but I liked my dish more. The service was good and the place is quaint and off the besten path. Chocolate tart and carrot cake were both atypical and fantastic. We shall be back for sure. Don't miss Harvest!

The food was exquisite. The highlight for me was the risotto with fresh morels and my husband loved the spaghetti carbonara. The server was wonderful and we sat on the heated patio in view of the fireplace. A truly perfect evening.

This was the second time we’ve dined at Harvest, first was brunch and now dinner. Our meal was excellent. Our table of four shared the cheeses, rabbit roulade and the oysters. For dinner we had a mix of risotto, lamb, and the tuna; everyone enjoyed their entrees very much. We also shared the fries, which were delicious. For dessert we each had the sorbet and it was a great end to a fantastic dinner. Our server, Kelly, was exceptional.
