We had made reservations elsewhere but our Food and Wine tour guide Mia recommended this place. So we went - we were lucky to get places on the patio - the ambience was terrific - of course so were the food, wine and service! Glad we cancelled our reservations to the other place

Inside is small and crowded . We were unable to secure a seat outside despite our reservations - such are the vagaries of running a busy restaurant. The wine was good . The waitress was efficient and friendly. The apps were very nice . CAn't recall what we had but it was good. The mains - we both had the... More

Highly over rated restaurant. Small portions of average food. As with many CA restaurants, it went over board in its ingredients, trying to be trendy. Yellowish Crushed stone patio caused a cloud of dust as patrons and wait staff walked. Highly unappetizing. A "C" at best. Bus staff was attentive, waiter not so much.

We had a large group of ten but our waiter did a fabulous job. Food was great- we both had the ribeye steak with beans. A definite must when dining in Sonoma.

I guess when you offer a "farm to table" profile, you sometimes run out of menu items. In out case they ran out of 2 of 5 items by the time we were seated at 730. I felt that was a bit early to run out of 40% of your offerings and my dining partners were pretty upset about it.... More

If your looking to avoid the rest of the crowded restaurants in the area and want a peaceful delicious meal this is your spot. Harvest Moon came recommended to us through our host at a Vineyard. We were blown away by how fresh and well prepared the food was. We are often dissapointed when going out to eat because something... More

After Domaine Carneros and a short rest, my son and his wife, me and my wife decided on dinner at Harvest Moon Cafe on the westside of Sonoma Plaza. We had been there before and always enjoyed the atmosphere and the food. They have tables indoors but also a beautiful patio with heaters for those cooler evenings. Their menu changes... More

We enjoyed all the entrees. The meat was cooked properly and the pasta sauce was very flavorful. We enjoyed the service and all of the meals. Prices were reasonable. Four entrees, soup, and four beers around $200 with tip.

Thank jlm456
