We went there on Saturday night of Memorial Day weekend. It was disappointing. We ordered the trout- the presentation was plain, nothing special about the seasoning. Portions were small and over-priced. My girlfriend and I made use of the restrooms-- we had to wait in line, outside of the kitchen/wait area, giving us a full view into the kitchen. I... More

I was very excited about going to Harvest for dinner. I left there feeling underwhelmed and figured that it was not worth the price. This is no joke but I was still hungry after I left. One can say, that you are pretty much paying for the experience.

We ate here for my birthday. I was very impressed with the restaurant. Very nice atmosphere and pretty décor. Food was excellent and service even better. I ordered Bershire pork. The preparation was wonderful with a great sauce. However, it was difficult to cut because it may have been a bit undercooked. I told the waitress and she offered another... More

Arrived about 8pm on a Saturday night. Didn't have a reservation and the staff was kind enough to split a 4-top into a 2-top right by the window for a great view of the Capitol. The service was attentive but not smothering. We enjoy a great first dish of pan seared scallops in a grapefruit beurre blanc sauce. It was... More

We ate here during a Madison restaurant special so we were able to try three appetizers for $15--fun way to try new things. We tried seafood ceviche, red corn beignets, and Spanish tortilla. All were great. We all tried the grilled steak of the day which was a hangar steak. It was yummy! My friend drank a half bottle of... More

I had a wonderful meal and, though far from the ocean, two wonderful fish dishes. Each was unique, a bit unexpected, but delicious. I started the meal with what was billed as a lobster bisque. It was a light preparation, flavorful, but without the heaviness of a traditional bisque. Lobster was finely cut, no big chunks. The broth was the... More

After reading all the recent negative reviews, I had second thoughts about Harvest, but had already made our reservations on the strength of their menu. We were NOT disappointed! Service was fast and professional, even though the place was packed. The courses came in good time. The amuse-bouche was a tiny serving of a beet and cream purée which kept... More

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
