Excellent, thoughtful food, incredibly skilled server. Really a memorable evening. Thank you!
Thank you so much for dining with us RachaelB! Jeff O GM Harvest
A number of the menu items seem quirky. Chef inflexible in ways that don't make sense when someone is looking for a decent breakfast. Harvest has always had ups and downs. This is obviously kind of a middling point--spoken as someone who has dined at this place for more than 20 years.
Good evening, Thank you for your feedback, I'm disappointed to read that you did not have the breakfast that you wanted. We certainly want to make our guests happy and strive to do so. I would very much like to hear more about your experience. I'll send my contact information in private. I look forward to hearing from you. Sincerely,
Spectacular in every regard
Thank you so much! Jeff O GM Harvest
Had dinner with friends and Chef Tyler / Team did not disappoint. If I could add 5 more stars - I would!!!
Thank you so much ChefZed!! Jeff O GM Harvest
The food and service were great! This is a Cambridge gem that is often overlooked. We'll be back again soon.
Thank you!! We look forward to your next visit with us. Jeff O GM Harvest
The food and the service was outstanding. We will come again! Thanks!
Thank you!! Jeff O GM Harvest
Waiter forgot an appetizer in one case, brought only two oysters instead of four on another, and brought one of the four entrees almost ten minutes after the other three. He was nice but really?
I'm so sorry to read about your recent experience, this is obviously not what we do here at Harvest. I would appreciate the opportunity to talk with you a bit more about your dinner and service. I'll will send you another message with my contact information so that we may connect. I look forward to hearing from you. Jeff O GM Harvest
The brunch was delicious and the service was wonderful!
Thank you!!! Jeff O GM Harvest
Went to Harvest for brunch on a warm Saturday in January. Sat by open doors looking into the courtyard. Food was very good and had a nice wine. The service was perfect and they were not in a hurry for us to leave.
Thank you HarryW! I'm glad you had a good time. Our private patio is perfect for weather like this. Jeff O GM Harvest
The food was unbelievably good. This kitchen is terrifically reliable.
Thank you so much!! Jeff O GM Harvest
great clam chowder. Could use something green on it to cut the very rich, creamy look and feel. Corn bread too sweet for my taste--baguette would be better with food.
Quiet room makes conversation a pleasure.
Thank you EllenN! Jeff O GM Harvest
The service was ideal, the food delicious, and space quiet enough to talk. I even remembered a birthday candle and wrote happy birthday on the desert
Thanks for celebrating your birthday with us!! Jeff O GM Harvest
Delicious food and wonderful atmosphere! A long time favorite and hidden jewel in Harvard Square.
Thank you!! Jeff O GM Harvest
Our meal was outstanding: delicious soup and salad with very generous portions. We also got the apple fritters to share on the table and they were absolutely delicious! We were in a rush to make a 1 PM show at the ART and the staff was very accommodating and got us our meal quickly. Everyone was kind and thoughtful. I highly recommend Harvest!
Thank you! I'm glad we could accommodate you and look forward to your next visit with us. Jeff O GM Harvest
Cozy corner table and good brunch selection (Sunday)
Allowance to vary menu items somewhat and prep was good. Presentation above average
Value is good for Harvard Square area
Thank you for having brunch with us!! Jeff O GM Harvest
As always, a wonderful meal. The staff is so attentive and professional. A great choice before theater as they are pros... never a worry about waiting too long for an entree or being ignored by the staff. Our food was delicious and we love the shared sides -generous portions and yummy!
Thank you so much AlanH! Jeff O GM Harvest
A vary lovely New Years Eve dinner, imaginative and a good value with wine pairings. A perfect evening.
Thank you BruceM! I'm glad you chose to bring in the New Year with us and look forward to seeing you again soon. Jeff O GM Harvest
Dinner was delicious. Service was good. It was a great way to celebrate New Year's Eve.
Thank you so much for bringing in the New Year with us!! Jeff O GM Harvest
Love coming here! The menu is always evolving, creative & delicious!
The fish with the curry was so good, it has a nice kick.
Buche de Noël is yummy and special treat during the holiday season.
Staff was pleasant and setting is very comfortable for either everyday dining or special occasion.
Thank you so much!!! Jeff O GM Harvest
Harvest has become our go to place for dinner on theater nights at Harvard Square venues. Always fabulous!
Thank you Fred! Please ask for me your next visit, I'd love to say hi. Happy New Year! Jeff O GM Harvest
The pancakes were light & fluffy but the quiche was a bit dry.
Thank you Mimi! We will keep an close eye on the quiche and we hope to see you again. Jeff O GM Harvest
Our dinner at Harvest was, as always, excellent. Our waiter immediately asked if we were going to the theatre, and when we said we were, he made sure that our meals arrived quickly, without making us feel rushed. My husband's venison was delicious, an extraordinary dish, and my haddock was excellent. The apple tatin that we split for dessert was a delicate finish to the meal. The restaurant was noisier than we've found it in the past, and my only complaint was that at a bank of empty tables, we were seated immediately next to the only other occupied one, affording both us and the diners next to us little privacy. But other than that, we continue to experience wonderful meals and service at Harvest, and will surely return.
Thank you so much for your review. I'm sorry it can get a little loud, we typically fill right up when there are shows in the square but I will be sure to review with my team so we can try and offer as much privacy or space that we can. Please don't hesitate to ask for me or another manager your next visit, if there is anything we can do we will always try our best to accommodate you and our guests. I look forward to your next visit and hopefully meeting you! Happy New Year! Jeff O GM Harvest
Excellent food, small carefully curated menu
Courteous, attentive staff
Thank you so much JenniferK!!! Jeff O GM Harvest
1st time in the fireplace room in the back - lovely setting for a special family gathering. The service, menu and presentation was thoughtful and well executed. We were surprised at the volume of potato sides given with each entree. Unfortunately, we all seemed to miss that detail in the descriptions - it would have been nice to have an option of salad or fruit instead... especially with such a hearty breakfast offerings.
Thank you so much CathyN! We're glad you enjoyed your brunch and we really appreciate your feedback on the accompaniments. Jeff O GM Harvest
Exceptional food. Attentive service. Had theater reservations and they managed to fit appetizers, main course, and dessert to the exact specified time. The food was beautifully prepared. The cocktails were excellent as well. Slightly noise but otherwise no complaints. Attire should be nice but doesn't have to be fancy. Highly recommended.
Thank you ScottJ! We're glad you stopped in for dinner before the show and we hope to see you again soon. Jeff O GM Harvest
Harvest is a classic, and a class act. Always a special experience.
Thank you very much!! Jeff O GM Harvest
Great place to go before an event in Harvard Square. Wait staff is super meticulous on ensuring you can enjoy your food and make event on time.
Thank you so much AnnieB!! Jeff O GM Harvest
Annual holiday celebration with friends- lovely festive atmosphere keeps us coming back year after year. Service staff are friendly but it was so busy small items were lost in the shuffle. But overall - a wonderful experience.
Thank you so much for always coming back to celebrate the holidays with us, we appreciate your patronage and feedback! I will be sure to follow up with my team, we want you and your guests to always walk away with a big smile and a full stomach. :) Jeff O GM Harvest
A wonderful place to gather and enjoy a meal with friends and family. Nice atmosphere, great wait staff and good food. Still a favorite after all these years.
Thank you ErikaR!!! Jeff O GM Harvest
Dinner before attending “The Revels” at Sanders Theater.
Thank you! Jeff O GM Harvest
great place for Sunday brunch attentive staff.
Thank you Thomas!! Jeff O GM Harvest
A charming, secluded bistro whose team clearly takes pride in the level of service and quality of their guests’ experience.
Once we found the entrance, we were greeted warmly by the hostesses (and the ambiance). We were a little early, so, we b-lined for the bar to have a cocktail while we waited. The bartender was friendly and, before we even got our cocktails, we were approached by a gentlemen who informed us that our table was ready and waiting at our leisure. This gentlemen turned out to be Jeff, the GM, who made us feel welcome and inquired after us.
Our bread and water were prompt. Our server, Vinny, was quick to greet and incredibly friendly. He provided recommendations enthusiastically upon request.
Scallop Crudo: Lovely, flavorful and beautifully plated inside a scallop shell. *recommend*
Foie Gras Parfait: Surprising, to say the least. The tartness from, what seemed to be a mixed berry jam layer, was beautifully juxtaposed against the pears and rich foie gras itself. The brioche was tender and a perfect match. A minor criticism — I wish there’d been more brioche! I had to request more. 🙂
Red Fish & Scallop Curry: A beautifully-panfried piece of redfish with perfectly cooked scallops, bok choy and spaghetti squash in a piquant, not quite spicy red curry broth that was “quite lovely” in my guest’s words.
Venison Denver Leg: A beautifully prepared venison dish which, while clearly carefully assembled (this dish was visually stunning), lacked something. The sunchokes and pears were a nice compliment to the berry jus, and the meat was perfectly medium rare, but this dish needs something in my humble opinion.
Bûche de Noël: A visually pleasing and intricately assembled dish. Understated almond flavors, a white chocolate shell and candied kumquats meshed nicely into a lovely dessert, which reminded my guest and I of an upscale, adult version of a Swiss Role.
Overall a wonderful dinner. We’ll certainly be back.
Thanks Jeff & Vinny!
Thank you so much for your review, I'll be sure to share it with Vinicius. We're so glad you had a memorable experience and we look forward to seeing you again! Jeff O GM Harvest
Harvest has been one of my go to restaurants to eat at in the Boston area for about 30 years. I know I will have a wonderful meal, good service, and warm welcoming atmosphere.
Thank you so very much Margaret! Jeff O GM Harvest
Waiter was non attentive and we are not a demanding couple
2nd visit probably not coming back anytime soon
I'm sorry to read this SandraB. I would appreciate the opportunity to speak with you about your experience and will be sending you my contact information. Hopefully we can connect. Thank you, Jeff O GM Harvest
We had a lovely time for a special occasion birthday. The staff went out of their way to be welcoming and even presented my mother with a gorgeous handwritten happy birthday message on her dessert plate. The food was creative and delicious.
Thank you for celebrating your mothers birthday with us! Jeff O GM Harvest
A bit hard to find, but once through the door we loved the cosy interior, and there’s more tables than you’d imagine. Great choice of food, and they were extremely helpful with my restricted diet. Veggies were really fresh and beautifully cooked. Staff were friendly and couldn’t have been more helpful. Liked it so much we went back 2 of our 3 days in Cambridge.
Thank you AndiG, It was a pleasure to have you dine with us! We look forward to your next visit. Jeff O GM Harvest
The Harvest is timeless but the food is always amazing - in line with modern cuisine and techniques but still warm, comforting and wonderful. The wine list is phenomenal. Everything from pedestrian over-Oaked Chardonnay and Cabernets to really gorgeous artful wines - at a pretty decent price at that.
Thank you so much for dining with us!! Jeff O GM Harvest
You can always rely on Harvest for great food, welcoming attentive service and ambience that’s perfect for business or a celebration.
Thank you so much! Jeff O GM Harvest
Wonderful meal here -- after a previous frustrating experience I returned to Harvest and an entirely different experience. Service was warm and thoughtful and the food was absolutely delicious, refined yet accessible, everything perfectly cooked and thoughtfully presented. The meal was paced out well and everyone was attentive without being obtrusive. Desserts were magnificent and it especially felt like a wonderful place to visit during the holidays. Absolutely recommend, with the highest enthusiasm!
Thank you so much Chris!! We look forward to seeing you soon. Jeff O GM Harvest
Harvest never fails to please. The food was delicious with interesting ingredients and combinations. Ambiance and service was wonderful and gives value for money. Very good lunch place.
Thank you!!! Jeff O Gm Harvest
