We are a small family run cafe in the heart of Sonoma's square and the beautiful wine country. We change our menu daily to utilize what is available and at it's best. We love to support our local farmers and winemakers. All of our produce, meat, poultry and fish come from farms, fisheries, and ranches guided by principals of sustainability.

The food was well done. The entrees were surprising because they were presented in a way we have never experienced before. It elevated the chicken and pasta dishes to be more than originally expected. We loved it.

Memorable dining experience. A "with it" operation with a great vibe, venue and feel. Creative menu that changes daily, well rounded wine list and friendly/attentive services...all makes for a relaxing and enjoyable experience. My wife had the pork shoulder and I had the sea bass, both were great. The starter salad was way beyond the norm. Also, very pleased with the Pech Mere Sauvignon Blanc. Definitely a "can't miss" in downtown Sonoma!

Not sure if I want to write this or not because I still want to be able to get a table on the fly......Harvest Moon never disappoints (me) and I know good cooking when I taste it, and see it (including it being made firsthand-I love the open kitchen). To me it is the best eats in the square.

Harvest Moon is near the top of our favorite restaurants in the North Bay. As usual, the menu was interesting, the service first rate (Thanks, Kelsey!) and the food was outstanding (a shared fennel/asparagus/grapefruit salad, the morel rock shrimp asparagus snap pea fricassee entree and the grilled spiced pork chop on chimichurra, followed with a shared chocolate cherry upside down cake (this was a birthday celebration). All was prepared to perfection and brilliantly presented. Bravo!!

It was a Saturday night and not to busy when we arrived for our 6:15pm reservation for party of 7. It was very hot inside and a bit better on the covered patio (if they don’t have AC they should invest or put some fans). The food was excellent but service was not—we weren’t in a rush but service was very slow. Our server could have been much more attentive.

We live in Sonoma, we had foreign friends visiting, so we took them out for a special meal. We have eaten several times at Harvest Moon since moving back to Sonoma. Other dinners were average but we kept giving the restaurant new opportunities to prove us wrong.

The atmosphere was good, service excellent, only wish the food were at that same level. I ordered the Duck Ravioli. The overwhelming taste was salt. My husband ordered the fish and it was over done. These seem or should be basic mistakes, not the kind of mistakes that a restaurant in Sonoma should be making especially at the prices they are charging.

Great meal from beginning to end. Their steak was excellent and tasty coming with potato and green vegetable. Salads are large. The table next to us split both the salad and steak entree. Best meal for our few days in Sonoma -- but not the most expensive one. The patio filled early but there was still tables inside, however, reservations are a good idea if you don't want to be disappointed.

Harvest Moon is our absolute favorite restaurant here in Sonoma (our hometown). It has never disappointed us in all the years that it has been here. The menu changes every night and each dish is delectable. And while some ingredients repeat (like beets, mmmm) they are never prepared exactly the same way. There is always a twist that adds creativity to their wonderful comfort food.

And do not miss the desserts, especially anything with ice cream!

Although the menu is limited in selections due to their tiny kitchen, it’s always good. We normally sit on the back patio but forgot to request it when making the reservation. The noise in the front room was deafening. There was a table of 6 drunks who were literally shouting at one another across the table. It ruined our dining experience. Even the couple next to us were complaining.

We randomly went here based on food options. I think they change their menu daily. So the steak on May 16, 2019 was absolutely amazing and the best steak I’ve ever eaten at a restaurant. My friends and I split, there were 4 of us, two got medium well and 2 got medium rare and none of us were disappointed! Definitely go here. The service was amazing too.

Had some fantastic food (king salmon was perfectly prepared and chicken cannelloni melted in your mouth) and our waitress helped us with a wine selection (actually brought us a taste of something we were considering but ended up not liking so she saved us from buying something we didn't want) and steered us away from an appetizer we were considering. Overall, a wonderful experience!

What’s to say about our favorite restaurant in town? Life gets busy and we hadn’t been on a date in a while, and Harvest Moon made it a memorable night by just doing what they do. The service was fantastic and the food was super fresh, local and delectable. Thank you everyone that works there, you da best.

Great meal. We were in the back room where it can get a bit loud. There was a bachelorette party next to us- but it was good, fun happy loud and not just dull roar loud- so we enjoyed it.

Fettuccine and pork chop were both spectacular. Love this place. A hidden gem on the square.
