Harvest Moon is one of the finest dinning venues in central New Jersey. The menu selections are always superb and prepared to perfection by the chef/owner. The service is excellent and the piano player on Friday and Saturday night is a special treat. Take a moment to view the landscape filled with flowers and the vegetable garden. Harvest Moon is our favorite restaurant for a fine meal.

We consider Harvest Moon to be one of the finest restaurants in this area. As always, everything was tops in our most recent visit. You always take notice when we're celebrating our wedding anniversary, and we appreciate that. Special thanks to our server, Jonah, who took very good care of us.

This was the best restaurant meal I have had in many years. The pork dumpling first course was bursting with compex flavors. The scallop and shrimp main course may have been the best seafood dish I ever had. The sevice was great.

Eight in our party and we had a very good dinner. Noise level from the piano player in the tavern area was way too much while in the tavern, and also somewhat annoying in the dining room. Food was good. Tuna dinner is a very small portion of tuna with an abundance of vegetables. I think when you order a tuna your dinner should consist mainly of tuna and complemented with vegetables. Pork dinner on the other hand was as it should be a very good size portion of pork and complemented with vegetables. Also since we were a party of eight, we were not allowed to order (or even hear) the specials of the evening-I thought that was strange. Overall very good.

We went early Friday evening. Service was top notch; it has an ambiance reminiscent of a New England inn and staff were all very friendly and efficient. White tablecloths and gaslit candles and fresh flowers on table were very nice ! Food was excellent

I had beef tenderloin with mashed potatoes and vegetables. My steak was cooked perfectly, the was just the eight amount of gravy and the vegetables were delicious. My husband had a salmon dish and said it was also phenomenal. Our server was attentive but not invasive. We very much enjoyed the live piano music.

Excellent food and service. Small menu but every one in my group found something and were very satisfied.
Interior is dated, a little musty smelling. Noise levels high.

I've been to Harvest Moon previously and it's vacillated between decent and excellent. It was just pretty good on Mother's Day. The food was not hot as it should be, it seemed to be sitting for a few minutes before it came out. The taste was good, but for the price you expect a little better. Kind of a shame, but there are times when the food is excellent

The food was very good, for the most part. My pasta was a tad too al dente, but everyone else loved their food. But the service was very slow with not a lot of people there. Took 2 1/2 hours for dinner. Would still go back or recommend, but be prepared. And my first 3 choices for wine bottles weren’t available. They actually lost money as I wound up going with a less expensive bottle than I originally planned on.

Food was very good, but we went on Mothers Day and the service was a little slow, I would go back, especially for their carrot ginger soup. Portions a little small for a Duck Breast at $37, but good flavor.

We waited almost two hours for our entrees, when my first course came out in less than 15 minutes... the food was over salted, nothing special... we had to waive a server down several times to get our waters refilled and order more drinks while waiting on our food... we are in no hurry to go back...

The food and coffee was very good, special for Mother’s Day brunch. There was a wait for our table as well as a long wait for food (start to finish 2 + hours) but overall it was lovely. To their credit instead of making a standard pre fix only you could select a la carte at a reasonable price.

Fine dining in every sense of the word. Locally sourced ingredients that are wonderfully prepared and beautifully plated. Salads were fresh and unique (loved the mixed greens with endive), meats are perfectly cooked, and desserts are dangerous... and not to be missed.

Stan Novak and his team have never disappointed, and they bring amazing sophistication to the food.

The only miss is the wines, where they have a diverse list but seem to struggle to maintain what they list. It's rather annoying to have the waitstaff repeatedly have to ask the bartender if they have my selection in stock.

They say you can't judge a book by it's cover, and don't let the exterior of this quaint Colonial home fool you- this is seriously good food and stands alongside the very best ion the Eastern Seaboard.

Harvest Moon is serious about "farm-to-table," growing much of their own food, and using locally-sourced foods as much as possible. Their kitchen is also wonderful and Charlie, in charge of the bar, can produce almost any concoction promptly and with elan. The facility is charming, and the wait staff meticulous. We've never had less than a wonderful experience there.

What a nice surprise! We had not been to the Harvest Moon for at least ten years. We were meeting folks who were coming from Bordentown, and it was exactly halfway, so we decided to give it a try. We could not have had a nicer meal. The food was delicious, the waiter exceptional, and it was lovely to be able to hear the outstanding piano player while still being able to have a conversation. We will definitely be back!
