From appetizers, to salad and soup, to steak, this was an excellent meal. The bar is well stocked especially for a bourbon drinker, and the service was exceptional.

Visited again hoping things would be better on 11/09/2014. Went for the special truffle and wine paring dinner. I think the service for these theme dinners is exceptional (but for regular dinging as in my past review...not so good) as well as the wine parings. The food, although some patrons were raving about it, was not. The ribeye on my... More

We visited Harvest last night and it was delightful. We shared the scallops appetizer. So yummy carmellized floating in a lovely sauce. We both had the salmon that was served with beets, mushrooms and artichoke hearts with a great horseradish butter sauce. Dessert was an assortment of local cheeses picked out early in our meal so they were a perfect... More

The food was great, but the service was really slow. I think we just got a bad server, so I would go back because the food was really good. The atmosphere was nice, not too large or noisy- there was a small bar in the back. I ordered the salad and Salmon. The salmon was cooked perfectly- Medium - and... More

We arranged a birthday dinner for a family member in the second floor room overlooking the Capitol Square. The evening began with hors d'oeuvres and drinks in another upstairs space, a hidden gem with gracious staircases and a large skylight. Two servers offered drinks while another circulated with a tray of hors d'oeuvres. They kindly offered to take pictures of... More

We went here for an enjoyable night out and had to find that elsewhere. The wait staff was arguing loudly near the kitchen, we were seated in a nearly empty restaurant and no servers came for 15 minutes. I asked for a surprise bottle of champagne as we entered, 15 minutes later they came to the table announcing the choice... More

It is sad to read many of the poor reviews as Harvest used to consistently be one of the best restaurants in downtown Madison. Luckily my wife and I faired better than others apparently have on a recent Saturday night. We had a reservation and were promptly seated at a very nice table by the window overlooking the Capitol. Slow... More

I went to harvest and enjoyed the meal, I had the steak special which was a skirt steak. Great presentation and garnish. The service was very slow, it took my waiter about 15 minutes or so until I actually had my drink order taken. The heirloom tomato salad was mediocre, it wasn't very exciting.

Location: Fantastic. As out of town visitors, sitting outside on the main plaza in full view of the Capital Building was memorable. Service: Good. Welcoming wait staff. Our waitress impressed us how well she knew the menu even with detailed questions. But service team seemed a bit stretched on a busy evening. Patio diners seemed forgotten; unfilled water was distracting.... More
