About

This restaurant is permanently closed. 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.

We love the Harvest Moon Cafe - the food, the staff, the chefs and owners. We were so glad to dine many times this last month to celebrate with Nick and Jen as they embark on the next adventure with Baker and Cook. We were not alone, and the closing night on Sept. 1st was filled with friends and fans.

The meals have been wonderful with special flavors and creativity, all deliciously and lovingly made in a tiny kitchen with skillful talent. The crew clearly loves the food and were able to describe all the nuances as an aid to pairing it with other dishes and perfect wines.

We will miss the Harvest Moon Cafe, but we were so fortunate to have experienced it as dinner guests and fans.

Best wishes on the next adventure! See you there...
Jim and Cookie

The host who seated us, his name was Loren (probably spelled that wrong) was so warm, welcoming and friendly. The Chef took time to chat with my younger daughter, was engaging and friendly as well. The best part - the FOOD! My salmon was phenomenal and my husband’s duck was delectable. Thank you!

Service and food was outstanding. I forget the name of the pork dish, but it was served in a gravy that had a hint of cumin and accompanied with rice and beans. Unusual dish and delicious. Our table also had the New York steak, that was cooked to perfection.

Everything about Harvest Moon was outstanding. We're so pleased we had a chance to experience this fantastic meal before they close their doors and move on to their new venture, Baker and Cook. Our waitress, Tiffany, was personable and attentive, as was Niko, our busser. Everything about it was a pleasure.

Chef Nick and his staff have done a wonderful job over the years. Harvest Moon is our favorite restaurant in Sonoma for casual dining with incredible food. With their upcoming closing, they will be truly missed.
Congratulations to Chef Nick and his wife for providing such a wonderful venue over these last 10+ years. 🙏🏼

We dined here four years ago and were super impressed. I'm not certain what exactly has changed but there has been a change. It was a nice hearty meal but not very refined. My husband ordered the chicken with greens and Andoullie sausage and it was very good. Dessert (pots d creme) were also very nice.

Was recommended by our rental property host, made reservation a month in advance only to get there and be told we would have to wait at least 30 minutes to be seated as other reservations came in later than expected. Not my problem, Hostess should have had "late arrivals" wait until seating was available to not delay those who showed up early. Once seated, took forever for waiter to come to our table once seated and even longer to get drink order and food order even took longer. Waiter was not engaging or helpful with the meal. They only serve 6 or 7 main entrees, I don't quite understand what the delay was in getting our orders.... Had to flag down another waiter to actually get the bill for the meal. That being said, once food finally did arrive, it was very good. I don't think I would try them again, embarrassing event .

After receiving our appetizer and bread, we hardly saw our server. Food took a long time to come out. 45 minutes. When I spoke with manager it was an excuse that the patio was busy. No comp on the dessert we ordered. Food was good, although my husbands lamb was a little tough. They are closing in September, maybe they don’t care about their customers anymore?

We arrived about 10min early and our table wasn’t ready but they were very attentive, sat us at a small table outside with a menu and got us both a glass of wine, they must have came out and gave us updates at least 2x but our table was ready basically when our reservation was. Definitely impressed with how they handled our wait time!

Then the dinning...food was really really good. We started with the bread and a salad (the one with blue cheese, avocado, bacon and other stuff), both were great and perfect size for us to share, then we had probably the best pork chop and close to the best steak we’ve ever had, and ended with a S’mores type dessert which was amazing.

I would recommend this place to anyone without hesitation and definitely will be back.

Most restaurants in Sonoma serve pretty much the same dishes year after year...slight changes but nothing remarkable. At Harvest Moon Cafe there is always something different , night after night, and always the food is remarkable. The staff is exceptional and the atmosphere relaxing and simple.

We sat in the outdoor patioI. It felt like a rustic backyard setting. Very relaxing and the service was timed well. Limited menu but plenty to choose from. They used fresh ingredients. We had the steak which was tender and the Zinfandel sauce was very good. . We also had the Handmade Bellwether Farm Ricotta Agnolotti with sautéed greens, roasted tomato sauce, pine nuts and pecorino Romano. The pasta was delicious but the greens were a little chewy. Overall we loved it.

Hate to see this closing. Been one of our favorites last several years. Always hi quality food, comfortable and welcoming but lacking some of the more experienced servers now...understandably. Wish the owners more free time and success with no bakery venture

As always, the food was very good......once it arrived. Water glasses stood empty even after several attempts to gain the attention of the person with the water pitcher. Many staff members seemed uninvolved, standing around while the restaurant (outdoors) continued to fill up.
Upon leaving, I commented to the owner that the food was delicious, but the service was WAY off. Her response was, "Well it's Saturday night, and we got slammed." No apology, no comp. (of say, the single shared desert)...no nothin'. I'm a local who was entertaining two LA diners. No return!
