“One of a kind.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2014

Make reservations. It is in a boutique area of town and the menu is wonderful. All the food comes from within a 100 miles of the restaurant the the flavors and dishes are divine. We all loved our meal and the host comes to visit and explain the concept of the restaurant. A must for when you visit.

“OMG Delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2013

Harvest recommendations were abundant on Yelp, TripAdvisor, as well as from a waitress at The Brown Hotel, from the TasteTours tour guide and from a local shop owner. The recommendations were well served. Spending merely a weekend in Louisville (our first time), we wanted to waste no time or meals on just the ordinary. Harvest did not disappoint. Super friendly staff, an 8:15 Sat. evening dinner reservation brought us to a rustic but funky restaurant with a full bar and a full house of diners.

Starting with their diverse cocktail list, I opted for a "Keeping up with the Joneses" bourbon-based drink. Having just this weekend entertained myself with a bourbon flight, a smattering of bourbon cocktails on the TasteTour, this drink was a true treat. My lovely bride chose a glass of Malbec from their moderately sized wine list.

We started with their cheese board and a house salad. The 3 cheeses were diverse and a great started. The salad was smack on, too.

I consider myself a food snob of sorts and a bit picky on baby back ribs in particular. Having selected the BBQ board, I had great hopes and expectations. Beginning with the sausage, I noted a great smokey flavor, perfectly prepared and OMG good. And this was just sausage. Next was the smoked chicken thighs; again perfectly cooked, tender, juicy, flavorful - OMG good! The ribs (mouth watering as i type) knocked it out of the park - by far the best ribs I've ever had; smokey, tender, complex layers of flavor, sauced just right. OMG wonderful! Literally a flavor explosion in my mouth. The fellow at the next table had ordered the same and exclaimed his delight, too.

My wife had ordered the gnochi and veggie ragu which she thoroughly enjoyed but it wasn't the unbelievable knockout provided by the BBQ board.

Couple notes - the restaurant was full FULL, definitely on the noisy side. Surrounding neighborhoods and the walk from downtown was a bit scary - we took a taxi back.

“Burger #1”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

I recently embarked upon a quest for the "Best Burger in Louisville" after reading a writer's article in Louisville Magazine wherein he ate 38 local burgers in 31 days. I have made my way down his top ten list and I am very much in agreement that Harvest' Burger is rightfully in the #1 Spot. Plus, all of their meat and produce comes from farms within a 100 mile radius, so they got that going for them...which is nice.

“lunch at harvest”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2013

Food was good and liked the atmosphere. Lunch for four with a total of 6 mimosas came to $126 including fifty cents each for small side of mustard and ketchup. I don't understand serving a burger and charging for mustard of ketchup.
