I've eaten here on three occasions and each time the food was consistently excellent. Made fresh with locally grown foods, the management and staff seem to really put a lot into the restaurant to make the dining experience satisfying. I plan on going back soon.

The ambiance is adorable! Huge chalkboards telling you where their local ingredients are from! The food is fantastic and super fresh! I highly recommend the short rib lettuce wraps as an app! Can't wait to go again.

Fantastic! Went there with a bunch of friends and they all loved it. From the Fig appetizers to the Apple dessert everyone loved there meal, If you want fresh local sourced food, this is the place! Waitress was very attentive and the owner came over to see how everything was.

Dinner on a Wednesday nite. Restaurant was pretty full. (It seats about 30 people) food was fresh and good but not great. And it is pricey. Entrees run around $30, coffee is $3. Appetizers around $15. Desserts $8 Portions not huge. And I thought $110/couple was a bit hefty for what it was. Pork belly app was nice. Never had that before. . Special tomato app was good but not much different than what I do at home. Many reviews raved about the scallops. I had them. They were ok but nothing special. The duck is a very small portion....beware. For dessert we had the apple Napoleon and a cannoli. Don't expect to share desserts. Glad we tried. Won't be back

My husband had heard great things about Harvest, so we tried it on a Sat night for our anniversary. We made reservations and arrived on time. We noticed people sitting at the four tables outside and thought it odd as you’re on a main road across from a busy shopping center entrance. We went inside to check in, and realized that we WANTED to sit outside as well – the room felt as if it had no air conditioning. Others have said it – the place is VERY small and was PACKED, so outside we went. Our waitress brought us water and ice for our wine. We heard the specials, placed our order for the duck appetizer and 2 dinner specials, and the wait began. After about 15 minutes, our waitress apologized for not bringing over breadsticks, and said she’d fix that. 15 minutes after that, we needed to remind her that we were waiting for breadsticks, which we finally did get with delicious pats of butter. And we waited some more. Finally, a different server delivered our dinners. No appetizer to be seen. She was about to take them back, but no way….we were starving! I ordered the Fluke Milanese, which was absolutely delicious. My husband had the skirt steak special, which was very disappointing. It was a chewy and he would have liked ketchup, but by the time our server came out to address the missing appetizer, he was pretty much finished. The owner also came out to apologize for the mix-up, and they offered to give us the appy to go (or dessert) on the house, but we were ready to move on. Bottom line, we had one incredibly excellent meal, one not so enjoyable, and service that definitely needs refining. I understand that made fresh from scratch might mean a longer wait, but our experience was just badly managed. However, so many other people have had good experiences, we'll give them a second shot.
