We were up in Sonoma to attend our second wedding of the summer. We had been to two other restaurants (that are more highly rated on TripAdvisor) on our prior trip, so we decided to try Harvest Moon. We really wanted to like it, but we found it very, very disappointing. Two of us had the ribeye, which we found... More

Wonderful dinner last week at the Harvest Moon. The most beautiful and delicious salads...one beet...one tomato...excellent. The bread was incredibly good... We all liked our entrees...favorite was the ribeye steak. The fish (I think it was mahi mahi) and eggplant pasta were both good. Wanted dessert but...couldn't. The dessert menu looked excellent. Nice wine list with some reasonably priced options.... More

Doesn't look like much when you first walk in, but you will be pleasantly surprise with the delicious food. I had the Rib Eye steak, and I have to say it was one of the best I've ever had. Cooked to perfection. The vegetable hash was outstanding. My friend had the roasted summer squash soup for her appetizer and loved... More

Based on a recommendation from a local we made reservations to eat the Harvest Moon, however the local let us know you have to sit on the patio for the best experience. The inside seating was wide open however the patio was full so there was no opportunity for early seating. once seated in what felt like a comfortable backyard... More

Our Dinner was excellent, except for one big disappointment. My Wife ordered the Southern California Red Snapper. It had a strong Fish Smell. Bread, Salad and other items were excellent. We sat outside, which was special. Service was Friendly and Efficient.

We ate here based on a recommendation from a local. We were very impressed, and we don't impress easily. Doesn't look like much, in fact you'd easily walk right by - don't. They have a very talented chef and the food quality was outstanding.

Finding the Harvest Moon Cafe is a challenge in spite of its location across from the square in Sonoma. Our reservation was honored. We were seated next to a table of about 20 who proceeded to get drunker and drunker and noiser and nosier ... rising, finally, to the db level of a rock concert. Very disconcerting. I usually don't... More

We read really good reviews before making a reservation for dinner. We sat outside and the ambiance was really nice out in the back. It seemed a bit stuffy inside so we were glad we were not in there. A few of the wait staff were super nice but our own server didn't get to our table in a reasonable... More

The difference between a cook and a chef is the ability to take any dish and create subtle but distinctive flavors that make it special. This restaurant has a great chef. The Ribeye in particular was outstanding and save room for the Cherry-Chocolate upside down cake. Only con was a rather high $18. Corkage fee but at least they let... More
