This hole in the wall restaurant packs a lot of seating into a very small space, although there is outdoor seating. The food was great and the service was appropriately attentive. We went early on a weekday evening, so the restaurant was not crowded, and parking was easy. We plan on going back.

I live in Sonoma and have eaten at all the restaurants in town, my wife and I rate this as the best in town. The chefs cut their own meats and the menu changes daily. The staff are friendly, the wine list is good and the back patio is a wonderful setting for a romantic dinner. I highly recommend having... More

Quaint place with great food and a fun, diverse clientele. The ribeye was perfection on a plate, and the portion sizes were generous compared to other restaurants nearby.

Our driver had recommended this place for breakfast and it did not disappoint. It is conveniently located in Sonoma Square. All the food was fresh local and delish.

The owner of the rental home for my two week visit to Sonoma for the back-to-back NHRA races at Sears Point recommended Harvest Moon. A real winner for my guests. I contacted the facility during our nine hour journey from Yorba Linda to the raceway with our racecar and motorhome to establish our dinner reservation. We were greeted promptly and... More

Limited menu and mediocre food. Patio tends to be very noisy. Long wait for our table. Would not return. Best items in menu are tuna tartare and fish special.

This little gem is on the Sonoma Plaza. We ate on the patio which is at the back of the restaurant (if passing by and restaurant looks empty, everyone is on the patio!). Everything we ate was delicious and fresh tasting. Best salad I have ever eaten. We will be back!

The patio garden here is a thing of simple beauty and calm. And works with the friendly staff, and the beautiful food to deliver a stellar dining experience. I had the beet salad, and then the sole, with rice and threaded veggies, the flavors were so great together, I can't remember when I had fish so good. Come here!

We were in the nice town of Sonoma, CA. We had just visited the old barracks of General Mariano Vallejo. We went for a stroll downtown looking for a good dinner place. We came upon the Harvest Moon Cafe and decided to give it a try. We chose to sit outdoors which is through the main dining room and bar... More

What a charming find. Simple elegance, outstanding service and excellent dining options. The vibe is a combination of a friends back yard dining room coupled with wine country charm.
