Great food, some mishaps with the service which could have been avoided by letting us know one of the salads had "run out" instead of just serving up an alternative.

It's outstanding the way the duck is done, here. In any case, so are the other things that I try at the inn.

The bar room where we were seated was very crowded; there was a table of about 20 celebrating a birthday and needed to shout to get above the very very loud piano player.
It wasn't until the large party left that the noise level became tolerable.
The sirloin I ordered was the worst piece of meat I have tasted in a very long time; bad meat combined with being undercooked for "medium rare" . returned it for a Filet Mignon,
which was better, but a very bad experience for driving 1 hour to reach the restaurant.
Other diners had very acceptable dinners; price of wine seemed very high.

Harvest Moon accommodated our party of 15 to celebrate a birthday on last minute notice. The servers were professional, courteous, and kind. Additionally, the kids meal options were great and the beef tenderloin the children chose was excellent! Everyone enjoyed their meals, desserts, and drinks. The piano music was also wonderful and he took requests. All in all, a great evening.

Very pleasant staff and quick service. Good selection of items and a small but interesting wine and cocktails list. Two separate rooms, bar and dining, allow for quite seating. Live music on weekends livens it up. Recommended.

I was confused on whether we were in the 1890's or 1980's.... This was our first time and the food was very good. It's a beautiful old stone building, but the wallpaper, carpeting, decorations overall were so 1980's it was actually a topic of conversation on how they need to fix it up. If they took the time to bring the rooms (and bathrooms) up to date then I can see the prices they charge for the meals. It's not an inexpensive place to eat... Time for a remodel to justify the prices as the ambiance was not there. Great wait staff and clearly top notice chef though. Just needs some TCL...

This was the first time for us at the Harvest Moon. It was recommended to us by a dining friend. We have mixed things to say: we sat at the bar and the service was very slow. There was only one bartender and he was quite over-worked. We ordered the seasonal greens salad, which was quite good, and the chicken sausage appetizer, also fine. For our main, we ordered the fettuccine with seafood, which was very average ... not much flavor and not very interesting. Since it is about 30 minutes from our house, we are unlikely to return.

This is one of my favorite restaurants in the area. The building is an old stone inn dating from 1810. They have a pianist every Friday and Saturday night. I think the chef has mastered sous vide cooking because I have seen him cook beef tenderloin for fifty or more. Each steak came out perfectly. Love it.

We have been loving the Harvest Moon for years. The food is always excellent and the owners and staff are welcoming and knowledgeable. For this visit, we were taking our family to dinner to celebrate the starts of winter break. But this is also our go-to for a drink or quick bite at the bar.

This was the second time that I dined on venison this week at a Hunterdon restaurant, but this was the best. The medallions of venison (one of the evening’s special entrées) were, indeed, very special!

An excellent choice for consistently great friendly service and fine food you can't get everywhere. Whether seated in the bar area or the dining rooms the service is great. It is nice to see the same faces working there time after time, it says a lot about their consistent levels of service.

It's been a few years since our last meal at the Harvest Moon Inn Restaurant and it did not disappoint. The menu featured many seasonal options with creative ingredients from small plates to entrees that we all found it difficult to choose. So we all opted for my favorite Beef Tenderloin sandwich, which is not indicative of the many amazing selections, it is the most perfect of sandwiches. Cooked to order thin slice sirloin, shiitake mushrooms, caramelized onions, just enough melted mozzarella , on one of the best poppy seed rolls ever served with horseradish mayonnaise on the side. Big fat real potato steak fries perfectly cooked and served hot.
The Harvest Moon Inn has a 'tavern' side and the dining room side and we typically select the tavern side with its small bar, table seating and grand piano. Both menus are presented on the tavern side. We had a show to go to and after mentioning this to our server, he had our meal brought out pronto.
It is worth the drive to Ringoes whether during the week or on the weekend to enjoy the chef's creative options or the perfect sandwich.

We had the best New York strip steaks ever. The atmosphere was warm and cozy. The rice pudding was also off the charts delicious. We will definitely be returning soon and we highly recommend this place.

The Harvest Moon has the same owner/chef for many years. Consequently, you're never disappointed. The food is creative, up to the minute ideas in a lovely atmosphere. Save room for desserts, all made in house and a perfect ending.
Perhaps, the piano could be a tad softer, to encourage good conversation.

I could not have offered any improvements on the pork medallions that made up one of the specials of the evening (prepared with whipped potatoes, garden peas and mushrooms). The wild mushroom soup that evening, which I've had on several other occasions, made a truly delicious meal.

This restaurant is distinguished by great service, starting with the lady who greets you at the door. Occasional lapses and shortcomings from the kitchen are made up by the friendly and efficient service. Good value Tavern menu and often creative main dining room offerings.

Dined here for the first time, after passing by for years. What a gem. LOVED the food! Fresh and great preparations. Having GF allergy, they fully understood and took the time to describe meals and ingredients. Dining room open, but was spaced well, for some privacy. Even though a later seating, didn't feel rushed at all. Great job, I'm sure I'll be back
