As I'm too lazy to write two reviews, this one is a combination of two visits to Harvest. The first one was for lunch with my family in 2012, the second a dinner with a group of friends more recently. Unfortunately, as is often the case, our experiences were vastly different. The lunch was awful and the dinner was great. Service was the major difference. Our waiter for lunch was terrible - arrogant, rude and dismissive. He forgot about us for nearly an hour at one stage, as he was off flirting with a woman at another table. Having worked in the hospitality industry for many years, I was gobsmacked at just how bad the service was, for such a highly rated restaurant! The food was, at best, ok. In the end, we left and went into Bangalow for dessert and coffee, vowing never to return.
A couple of months later, I was invited to a dinner at Harvest. In contrast to my previous experience, our dinner was wonderful. The service was great, food was fantastic and everyone in our group of 8 rated the meal 10/10. I'm hoping that our lunch experience was just an anomaly.
