“Great restaurant!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

The Huntley Tavern, and the other restaurants owned by Harvest Restaurant Group are known for great food, atmosphere, bars and service. My most recent visit was for lunch on a damp day, but we were still able to sit on the covered porch, a plus. Lunch sliders (three different sandwich fillings), house made pommes frites, and a bloody mary for my dining companion, were all excellent. Would highly recommend this place for couples, friends, celebrations, etc. Book ahead if you want a seat on a Friday or Saturday night!

“Eat here often and it's inconsistent”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013 via mobile

The Huntley justifies the high prices w locally grown food, but most of time it is just ok, could be good but most times unseasoned. On different occasion, i have had Asian chicken salad, cedar salmon, tuna tartar, swordfish, burger, and mussels. I would only recommend their tuna tartar which has been consistent. Desserts are good. I think the food at Roots or Trap Rock is better (sister restaurants). I wish I could give a better review.

“OVERPRICED and SMALL PORTIONS”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

This was our first visit to Huntley Tavern but have visited some of their other "Harvest Restaurants" prior. It was a lovely evening, so we sat outside on the porch with was quaint but could hear the entire conversation of the table next to us. The wait staff was excellent and attentive. He brought out 3 mini sourdough bread rolls with a chipole butter. We each ordered the soup sampler with a minestrone and a lentil/bean puree soup with a little kick). I ordered the scallops and my husband had the monkfish. They were both good but not great or WOW!. The portion sizes were - 4 sea scallops and the monkfish was about the size of your palm on your hand (small palm). We did not have dessert and only one drink, I had water, and the total was over $80 which we thought was steep for what we got and the size of the portions. There is valet parking - if you are lucky enough, you can park on the street. They seem to do a lot of business at the bar with the bar menu and drinks as it was crowded. Would suggest a reservation. WE just weren't impressed.

“Excellent meal and experience -- very enjoyable, fun time, would certainly return.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

I really enjoyed this place. The food was excellent, from beginning to end, appetizers, drinks, entrees -- everything was excellent. The ambiance, decor, the entire atmosphere was very good -- whether you are there for a casual bite or a nicer meal.

Service was very good, attentive, not over the top or too much. We didn't have to ask for anything -- more water, another drink, each time whatever we needed or wanted was offered.

Just a very enjoyable experience and we left wanting to go back. I strongly recommend the place.

“Nice meal and experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

Dined here for a special family mean, and had a great meal, with great atmosphere. Had never eaten here before, but everyone in the group had a great meal, and a great time. It was a tad pricey, but fair, all things considered
