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

Celebrated our 30th Anniversary at Harvest Moon. Real farm to table cuisine. Creative dishes. Grilled eggplant salad was spectacular.

Excellent local cuisine; attentive service, great variety, veggie friendly. The roasted quail was a tasty treat. Ask for reduced salt, though, if you're worried about sodium.

Pleasant enough atmosphere out on the patio, and service was fairly prompt, but the food was just okay. When I dine out, it's always a bit of a downer to think, all through the meal, "I could have made this dish twice as well, at a teeny fraction of the price!" Overpaying for food is, of course, what one expects... More

Brought our own wine purchased next door for dinner and had a long wait for it to be uncorked. The lasagna and squash soup were excellent. The short ribs were only okay. Service was slow which was weird in such a small restaurant. Cute place but probably would not return.
