Delicious food and a fun innovative menu. We went there for an anniversary dinner, and had a lovely time. The service was great, we felt a bit spoiled, and the food was delicious and presented beautifully.

Second visit. Sat inside given the rather nippy November evening. Wished we'd opted for the courtyard which is heated, since the atmosphere out there is magical. This place puts out some serious food from a ridiculously tiny kitchen. The entree selection was somewhat limited on a weeknight in November and my Niman Ranch strip steak was rather thin and disappointing... More

Our party of four had a varied experience. My husband thought every plate he ordered had an ingredient that didn't compliment the rest of the dish....the orange in his roasted beet salad and the vinegrette on the side served with the Miso Chicken. Another in our party was unhappy with the long wait after ordering and how hot the room... More

We wanted to go to another restaurant but it was closed for the week, so selected this instead. the corkage for our own wine was a little expensive ($20) and the food while adequate was not up to the standard we expected.

A good friend took me to the Harvest Moon Cafe for a wonderful dinner. Because it's the quiet season in Sonoma, we were able to pick a table in the back where we were able to watch the amazing chefs work their magic. We had a wonderful server who was able to recommend a fabulous white wine to go with... More

We got a table with a view of the kitchen, and we enjoyed watching the chefs at their craft. The food was wonderful, flavorful and well presented. The staff could not have been nicer. A real treat all around.

I loved this restaurant and its farm to table style. The menu was full of amazing entrees to choose from. I choose the pumpkin risotto which was fantastic. The idea of farm fresh to table is something that is rare in Boston so I take advantage of going to places when I travel. I recommend this restaurant for anyone who... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by one of the wineries we visited. Menu changes daily, and reservations were required. Food was excellent!

Harvest Moon is a nice intimate place for dinner just off the Sonoma Plaza. While the menu is limited the choices are outstanding. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We were a bit disappointed in the food as we had high expectations-- it was only very good. The place was very busy so it must be doing most things... More
