Great quality right on the square

Really enjoyed this place for our final night's dinner. Couldn't finish the steak, but it was delicious!

Specials change daily but I wa fortunate to be there to have homemade polenta/ricotta mushroom torte ! I told my husband not to talk to me while I was eating it was so good I savored each bite . Had chocolate ice cream peanut butter cake by suggestion of waiter for dessert. This meal was worth the calories !

We had a great steak, done to perfection. Service was good. Portions weren't huge,as we find most places like to serve quantity over quality. Not the case here. Everything was good!

This restaurant is ideal for an intimate dinner. The menu has a good selection of appetizers and entrees and the wine list is robust.

We were so happy to get reservations at Harvest Moon during the film festival. The food was wonderful, the service was perfect. They were worried they had taken a bit longer than expected with dinner - we hadn't noticed - and sent over another appetizer on the house. Highly recommend. Great place right on the square.

Yes, it is "pricey". But, yes, this was the most delicious and fresh meal I had in Sonoma. Bar none. The menu changes often (like daily) so the food really is a work of art. The atmosphere is nice but no frills. The outdoor enclosed area was such an unexpected nice treat! The hostess was unfortunate, but the food and... More

This charming and romantic restaurant features local foods, fresh and inventively prepared. The duck was superb, and the deserts to die for. The service was attentive, but not cloying. There is an outdoor patio for an alternative setting. Menu changes often. A bit pricey, esp. for the appetizers, which were largely in the teens. Mains largely 20s and 30s.

Nick runs the kitchen and has deft hand with serving beef, pork and lamb. That is not to say he does not know pasta, fish and more. The wine list is short but full of depth and pairs well with the menu. The inside dining room is cozy and the patio out back is wonderful. Romantic but great for my... More

The menu changes daily, so check it out before you arrive to see if it appeals to you. Small, with outdoor seating, Food good and of course wine is available too. Service was ok, actually nothing special.

We stopped here for dinner. The menu is varies nearly every night, so it does not pay to describe it much here. I will say that the atmosphere here was wonderful. Small romantic place to have a glass of wine or a beer and meal. The service was wonderful. This was easily our second favorite meal on our trip. I... More
