Went to Harvest on a snowy night-very cosy, and the staff was welcoming and pleasant . Went with the weekly menu and very much enjoyed everything, but esp the lamb crepinette.PERFECTION. Must return for the opportunity for the summer patio. Lovely.

The lobster BLT: so much salt&? that the lobster's delicate flavor was annihilated. (the bacon was good) The breaded cod held 6 bites of fish and no flavor at all. More of the crispy outside instead of the mini mountain of soggy "breaded" might be a good idea. (The iced tea was weak, but good.)

New Years Eve at the Harvest bar is something we have been doing for a decade. This year the food was fine, actually quite good. But the bartender was rude. It was clear that he wanted to be somewhere else. We saw one well-heeled older couple (whom I recognized as neighbors...we are neighbors too) come in and leave. First they were told that there would be a one hour wait for food and then five minutes later they were told to put their order in fast because the kitchen was about to close. Harvest has had great bartenders in the past. They need a new one.

I am from NYC and needed a venue for a graduation party in Boston. For various logistic reasons we opted for Harvest; I was most dismayed to then see the lukewarm reviews but too late to change. I am happy to say how surprised I was. They were adept at dealing with our large group of 12 of varying ages. The service was smooth and, without exception, the food was great. We had a chance to try much of the menu with a group this large and everybody was very happy. Most importantly, my daughter was satisfied with her celebration. Maybe I got the on a good night but I just don't understand the weak reviews and I would definitely be happy for a return visit - especially now that I am finished paying college tuition!!!!

Ventured out to Harvest and I must say it took me some time to find. It is discreetly tucked away from the main street. My first impression was that I was in a furniture showroom with wooden floors. I guess they call this a 'new American feel' or 'modern tacky'. Once seated, it took them ages to present me with a menu, I had to ask for one and they seemed to have difficulty in finding one..even though the restaurant was barely full. I began with a glass of champagne, followed by a very cold, ordinary veggie terrine dish with goat cheese. I had to ask for the menu again, the make sure that it was presented as it was published. Then came the next disaster, my entree..a very bland, huge piece of cod, sitting on a bed of wilted mesclun leaves. There was not even a hint of garnishes or an inkling of jus for the cod! It was the most awful creation! Last, but not least..came the banana mousse disaster..ewwww! It was a mess! Reminded me of baby food with mashed bananas..the waiter raved about it...and I wanted to cry! What a palava! The saving grace for my evening were the wines..they were wonderful. Luckily, I had the sense to order from the wine pairings menu. I hope that Harvest has harvested and has improved for the better! On another note, it has great potential as a wine bar!

Recent weekend night out at the Harvest didn't exactly disappoint but didn't thrill either. We have been regulars of the Harvest for years. Last weekend's meal was OK but not more. The oyster bisque was too thick with flour and although in a very hot dish was lukewarm. The Bibb lettuce salad with shrimp and coconut was sort of weird and the dressing was too sweet. My fish was OK...the almond risotto beneath it was actually the best food of the night. Room was very very noisy. Popular spot. For a big night out, I would prefer Rialto nearby. For a drink and snack at the bar, I recommend Harvest.
