The Zagat Review
“The legend continues” at this “perennial” Harvard Square “landmark” , whose “exquisitely prepared” contemporary New England cuisine and “lovely” wines have been “worth a celebratory splurge” for decades; the “romantic” dining room and “intimate” , “shady” patio have a “proper” air to them, but service is “winsome and welcoming” , so it all ends up feeling “civilized” “without being stuffy.”

Upscale restaurant catering to area professionals. Nice for business lunches and dinners. Tucked away off of Brattle Street, so can be hard to find. Parking is challenging in Harvard Square, but the MBTA red line Harvard Square subway station is very close by.

Harvest has a nice warm feel and is a great place to go in the winter. Although, I did see an outdoor patio, so it may be a good summer spot as well. The food is fantastic. They have very unique dishes you couldn't get elsewhere. We had the mushroom tortellini, pork pate, venison, and the whole lobster. The tortellini broth was SO good and was great for dunking bread. The pork pate was great, but was large and a bit filling. The venison was perfectly seasoned and charred to a nice crispy medium rare. It also came with a polenta cake. The lobster was really good, but the unique part was the clam chowder cake thing, which was fantastic. The dessert was very very good. Although, for their pastry chef being on the Holiday Baking Championship recently, the choices are a bit limited.

We made our first visit to Harvest for a special occasion, which was noted on the reservation but not acknowledged by the restaurant. I can only think our waiter was untrained, as any alternative would be inexcusable. We had to request the ability to order everything from drinks to entrees. After waiting 20 minutes for drinks, he spilled the entire tray on my husband. Accidents happen, and we felt badly for him. However, for having to sit through the meal soaking wet, not even my husband's drink was comped. The food was tasty, although quite heavy on what tasted like Liquid Smoke. Difficult to eat appetizers with menus still in our laps (we hadn't yet realized that we had to ask to order everything). Finally, after bringing dessert, our waiter never came back, but was occupied with a large table nearby. We had to get up and ask the cashier for the check, and when it wasn't picked up, get up and carry it back to the cashier. Overall, a big disappointment.
