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.

We had a very pleasant experience yesterday for lunch. We stopped at Harvest Moon cafe and had three amazing pizzas. The best was the Irish Blond pizza. The view is pretty and the servers are very friendly. Definitely worth a stop!

Glad you had great pizzas. Unfortunately you have confused us with a different restaurant. We serve dinner only. More

After reading good reviews we dined here on a 3 night stay in Sonoma. The squash soup was good, after that it was terrible. My wife had a rib eye which she did not enjoy, if you start with poor quality steak you end up with a poor meal. My lamb chops were terrible. Wait staff had all disappeared to... More

This is our go to restaurant when we want an AMAZING diner! The staff is beyond friendly, the menu is always changing and for the better, the wine list has something for everyone. If you want to avoid a wait go during the week or Sunday nights. It can be busy Thursday, Friday and Saturday evening; peak tourist time. I'm... More

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
