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.

Booked a birthday dinner for a friend. Everyone there spoke about how wonderful the entire
evening was. The food....wow. Some took home left overs and are still enjoying them! It was
lovely to dine outside and even nicer to have a conversation with all of us that we could hear.

It was very easy to make a reservation and it was in walking distance of the hotel and plaza. The food was delicious and we bought a bottle of wine. We were celebrating my birthday and they brought out the dessert we ordered with a candle and on the house scones that we talked about trying. We sat outside on the patio and the weather was amazing for July and ambiance was perfect. Thank you.

We had guests in for the 4th
Two ordered the steak. It was grizzly and tough. Instead of being served with potatoes, it was served with dry black beans.
We brought one bottle of wine not on the menu.
We purchased two on the menu. The server charged us corkage. We inquired and she said she wasn’t aware she could wave corkage if we bought two bottles. That was corrected.
Normally food and service is very good.

Wanted a romantic night out and this place did not disappoint. We were a bit nervous at first because when we walked in the place was empty but it was because everyone was in their charming outdoor area in the back enjoying the gorgeous weather. Great experience, great food highly recommend.

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.
