Unfortunately we were unable to make our reservation to Harvest Moon as we were were delayed in our arrival and circumstances to make it to our reservation were out of our control. We called and let them know we needed to cancel our reservation and they chose to charge us $25 per person (a party of 6) even though we... More

From the friendly waiters to the perfectly prepared cuisine, everything here is wonderful. This small, unassuming restaurant turns out scrumptious meals served by very attentive staff. Harvest Moon is one of the best restaurants in Sonoma County. Make a reservation or dine early to make sure you get a table.

We were in Sonoma 2 nights and we ate here both times. Had great local wine. First time I remember enjoying Brussel Sprouts. Everything was top notch including friendly service. If I was disappointed in anything it was dessert, but I bake a lot so it has to be really unique and a bigger serving than a postage stamp to... More

Harvest Moon Cafe serves the kind of food you just want to lick off the plate. I had the beef and my husband had the sausage and they were both equally yummy especially with a wonderful bottle of local wine. ‎We sat in the courtyard but the interior tables were just as pleasant. Great music and attentive service completed the... More

Harvest Moon Cafe is a 'dining must' when you're in Sonoma. Definitely one of the top restaurants in town, and right on Sonoma Plaza. The white miso soup was an innovative twist on the Japanese classic. And the chicken breast was the most moist I've ever, and was prepared a kicked-up notch of spice. It was out of this world....

Walked in without a reservation and the staff was nice enough to squeeze us in. That said, you'd be wise to make a reservation during busy periods. Our server was very friendly and helpful. Food and wine were very good. We were in town 4 days and this was one of the best meals we had.

Fantastic food. This place has a new menu daily...and very creative. Based on Sonoma County farm to table cuisine. Nice little back patio with beautiful ambiance.

We arrived in from SFO late and not only did HMC hold our reservation, they helped 7 weary Texas girls find the restaurant when we got lost in the square around 9P at night! We sat outside on back patio which is basically impossible to do at home in Houston during summer. Beautiful night, nice breeze, fabulous food and wine... More

Everything about this dining experience was terrific - the service, the lovely back garden, the wind AND the food. Everything was delicious and not the run of the mill farm to table variety but interesting and very well executed. We all enjoyed the meal very much and highly recommend the restaurant. Sit in the garden - just lovely.
