Californian
Our restaurant, bar and private dining room celebrate the storied history of California's organic farming, brewing, and oenology. Outdoor patio seating unveils stunning Aliso Canyon and golf course views. As an homage to the original homesteaders, fresh-made food and drink are a focus throughout your dining experience, with many ingredients harvested on property. What we don't grow here is thoughtfully sourced.

The menu changes with each season, integrating fresh herbs, fruits and vegetables grown and gathered from our own half-acre Harvest Garden. The new bar is a haven of sociability, featuring an innovative handcrafted cocktail menu, enticing wine list and 18 craft beers on tap—all for sipping along with earnest conversation.

The Harvest team shares their masterfully creative and intensely local take on Californian comfort food designed with food-lovers in mind.

We were staying at The Ranch Laguna Beach and decided to stay on premises for dinner to celebrate a special occasion. We're glad we did! We were meet by a very attentive and friendly hostess who acknowledged our celebration and even though we arrived early for our reservation, was able to accommodate us right away(it was a midweek though). We were seated at a table that afforded us the ability have a private and quiet conversation even though there were quite a few other patrons. Our waiter, Russell, had the right amount of attentiveness and was knowledgeable about the new fall menu which gave us a great selection from appetizers, entrees and desserts. There were also plenty of specialty drinks, area specific beers as well as the standard libations. Afterwards we finished the evening by sitting out on the patio by a fire pit table listening to a wonderful local musician, Tyler Simmons.

We have dined at Harvest prior to the pandemic and we noticed a decline in the overall experience. Hopefully they are getting back to normal but it can't happen soon enough. We had to ask several times for plates and utensils and saw our shared appetizer set down on another table before coming to us. It looks like they have the staff but additional training is needed. Food was good but not as good as before. Hope that bounces back as well.

The Ranch is magical. The Harvest brings it home. Casual, yet elegant. The excellent service, delicious menu, and gorgeous view of the lush greens and hills, makes any occasion feel like a very special one. It's a local favorite with my friends, we feel lucky to have it in our backyard. I'm still thinking about that swordfish sandwich I recently enjoyed, it was sooooo good! Can't wait to be back.

It was good other than the “no balloons” policy. We bring balloons to every birthday luncheon and this is the first restaurant to say no to balloons.

Harvest is fantastic destination for breakfast with my daughter, son-in-law and their two small children. The cinnamon roll is a favorite and is shared and enjoyed by everyone. The views of the canyon with the deers and rabbits keep the kids attention. No better spot for my family.

A dining experience includes everything from the moment you drive up to the valet, the restaurant’s surroundings and interior ambience, team members’ service, and of course, the food.

Harvest’s is outstanding in every minute detail.

It inspired me to drive down from Glendale for lunch. My husband and I savored every detail.

I highly recommend this place.

Lovely lunch spot for a sunny warm day.

We ate outside and enjoyed our delicious salads while basking in the SoCal sunshine. Service was excellent and the food was very good.

I had the Cobb Salad. It was lightly tossed with dressing, had a generous amount of bacon, chicken, beautiful heirloom cherry tomatoes, avocado and was large enough I only ate half

My dining companion had the Swordfish Citrus Salad. We each had a small taste of each others and her Swordfish was cooked perfectly. I will likely order that next visit.

It was a great place to eat and celebrate my friend’s bday. There were flies (not fun) so we had to change tables. The servers were really sweet and nice but we had to request for utencils, water, sugar and details for our coffee and meal… not what I would expect from a nice restaurant like this one. The food was fantastic! Overall a great experience. Just a note, when bringing coffee to the table, include a spoon and sugar please!

The service was friendly but slow, but the food was delicious.
The leather/pleather chairs are looking worn and tired, should be replaced to keep up with the great decor and vibe of the place.
Lovely spot for any meal!

I chose the Fried Rice as I am a vegetarian and there weren't many options on the menu. I was extremely disappointed with the dish. The poached egg on top was cold and congealed , the rice was literally mixed with a very strong sauce of some kind which was overpowering and did not taste good at all. The waiter was incredibly understanding and removed it from me, offering me anything else on the menu. There was nothing else I really could eat so I focused on my husband's side of mac and cheese which was excellent. This was our 32 nd Wedding Anniversary meal, so needless to say both of us were disappointed.

Food seemed to have too much Southwestern kick to it. Asian rice dish was more southwestern in ingredients than Asian. The noodles with bolognese I believe had mole sauce rather than bolognese. Again, could be amazing to others just not mine. The service was amazing and the cocktails were perfect.
