I ordered the breakfast croissant sandwich. Big mistake. It was mushy and way too greasy.

Reservation was in early for Valentine's Dinner only to arrive and find Harvest changed out the menu completely - extremely eclectic offerings ala northern California feel good dishes that did not align with my expectations... always great time, great food - tonight was an extreme disappointment! Check the menu before heading out. Will be removing Harvest for future dinners!

Getting drinks was slow but food was amazing. Would have liked some some small plate options. The appetizers were meal size. Special place for sure!

Completely enjoyed our lunch here. Excellent selections; the fried chicken sandwich was outstanding. The interior design is open and inviting. The horseshoe-shaped bar is well-placed. Big windows all around and when the day is nice (as when we were there) they slide open completely allowing fresh air in and a great view of the golf course and surrounding canyon.

The restaurant is located with golf course views with a fireplace that creates a beautiful indoor ambiance. However, the food was unexceptional. None of the diners enjoyed their food and only thought it was mediocre, not much better than Denny’s to be quite frank. Also, we were celebrating a birthday event and never even received a happy birthday or offer of birthday dessert. Though the staff repeatedly came by to make sure we had our drinks, offered to pour coffee, and checked on us, we thought there were too many attempts to check on us and thus it resulted in numerous interruptions of our conversations. But because they tried to provide service, I gave them a higher score of 4 stars on service only. Overall, the location was lovely and had a nice rustic feel however, the food could be greatly improved. Just a so so experience!

Food was good, not exceptional. Service was not great. Waiter was nice but he rarely came to check up on us and we waited so long to pay our bill, we ended up flagging down another waiter for our payment.

The black cod was one of the best dishes we have enjoyed in a long time. The service fromGary was friendly and attentive. Eric, the sommelier helped us select the perfect wine to complement our main course. Kudos to the chef for the wonderful and flavorful presentation. Oh, and the delectable chocolate bread pudding was enough for four people. Thanks for a most enjoyable evening!

A tad loud due to all the hard surfaces but a beautiful dining room and bar. Relaxed environment. On this occasion our server was Daisy. Very friendly, professional service. I had the lobster grilled cheese and it was superb! Best French fries around. Would definitely return.

We came here to have breakfast to celebrate an occasion for us. We had an incredible server. Jayne helped us search through the menu, and was able to accommodate all of our wants and needs. She was attentive at the right times. The outside patio view is incredible. The inside has a wonderful ambiance. We absolutely enjoyed this restaurant and will be returning

Harvest is a farm to table restaurant set in an elegant and yet inviting space that is open and complete with a fireplace! The service was excellent and the food was amazing and wine just right. It is a well kept secret even to the locals. I would definitely give it a thumbs up without hesitation.

The menu selections were terrific and plentiful. We (my wife and I) had a hard time deciding!

Salads (wedges) were just the right size, dressing was just enough, as was bleu cheese; and the “lard on” bacon was a great addition!

Entrees (her gnocchis and my scallops) were terrific!

Desert menu was outstanding and hard to turn down!

Last, but not least, our server Phillip was a joy to have! He is a great ambassador for Harvest and The Ranch in general!!

Bravo!!

Had a very enjoyable dinner with friends on a weeknight, sitting in one of the quieter booths. Our server, Phillip, was exceptionally knowledgeable about the menu selections, kind in his interactions, and possessing perfect timing on returns to refill beverages or check in. The mussel dish pleased my palate, while my table mates enjoyed filet and burgers.

This was our second time staying at The Ranch and we can't wait to come back! Harvest is a very intimate, higher-end restaurant with amazing food, even better drinks and excellent service. Highly recommend going whenever you can!

This was the 3rd time we have dined in the evening. Previously, the food choices and the dishes served were excellent! For my birthday this time the entrees were nothing like before and the appetizers/salads were meager, to say the least. I don’t know if the chef has changed, but the Uni menu also sounded distasteful! I will not go back with this menu.

Delicious seasonal food with clear intentionality in the menu choices. Also the drinks were delectable.

Service was quite slow, but we were there for a lovely evening so we weren't in a hurry.

Hit harvest for breakfast with family. Really outstanding service and food, in the Aliso Canyon is a really special and beautiful spot. Primary reason we picked Saturday and this timing was to see the raptors from the Orange County rescue center. It was really cool and it is a great foundation doing super work to rehabilitate these magnificent birds of prey. Just a really special Saturday morning. Will be back!

Eight of us went for lunch, seated immediately in s quiet corner with a beautiful view of the hIlls and golf course. The table was set with menus at each place. Our server was very attentive, as were the other personnel. Everyone was pleased with their choices from Crab on Avocado Toast, Ceviche, Steak salad, the soups, Club sandwiches.

What a great night! The small plates were fantastic - we tried so many of them that we didn't save room for entrees! We are heading back soon to do just that! The Punta de Lobos and the Cosecha were amazingly refreshing libations. Our server, Chance, was extremely knowledgeable about the menu and helped us tremendously with our selections. Chance was fun and engaging, and we will definitely request him as our server on our next visit.

We have been there many times and I feel they are falling backwards again. The service was SLOW. Waiter chatting with other servers, food took forever! This has been a long standing problem and the last 3 times visiting we felt they fixed this problem.
Maybe this visit was an outlier, we hope so.
Food was good, menu seemed limited in choices. We will try again, the ambience is lovely and we feel strongly about supporting local establishments.

Great ambiance with phenomenal views. Restaurant is incredibly ice, inside and out. Food is good but nothing extraordinary. Benedict was nicely done. Breakfast croissant was excellent. Asked for crispy breakfast potatoes and they seemed like boiled potatoes that were sautéed for a few minutes...far from crispy and seasoning was typical. Food took an eternity and that’s been the case each of the 5-6 times we’ve dined here. Stayed at the resort and will go back.
