“Could be great wood fired pizza, just misses by a drop”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 19, 2012

Great beer at a cheap price ($4, $4.50) and pizzas that aren't so cheap, but are good. The pizza is not crisp in the center, and could use another 30 seconds of cooking. The sausage is great, the pepperoni too. The mushroom was good and the garlic was good too. The salad gets high praise.

You tell me?

Pizza for 2 with beer and a tip, $80.

“Pizza with a flair”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2012

Love the organic pizzas and superb salads! Pizzas are baked in a woodburning stove. Nice casual atmosphere with views of the water. Service was excellent!

“Decent food but not worth the aggravation”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2012 via mobile

We live in Saratoga and have been to most if not all of the restaurants in the area so we are pretty savy diners that enjoy good food and expect good service. We always base our experience not only by the food quality but the overall experience which includes service which frankly can make or break a night out at a restaurant. We have gone to harvest and hearth a few times and every time we go we end up asking ourselves "why"??? The pizza is decent and they do offer nice fresh salads but we cant get beyond the fact that this place needs some serious mangement intervention. The hostess who on this particular night was meek and clearly ill trained to perform her duties as she couldnt manage the Crowd and gave away a few tables that customers had been waiting on for quite sometime. It was not a good scene as we walked in to have the hostess getting berated because she never called their names but just softly said "party of 7??". We knew at that point our evening was destined to be a failure. Our promptness for our 7pm reservation for 13 was meaningless as the hostess tried to explain she took too many reservations and she was waiting for a large party to leave. We stood around for a half hour wondering where else we could go with such a large party on a saturday night. Harvest and hearth was not going to be pleasant evening and it was clear they have no management asssistance to help the overwhelmed staff. Even the bartender who was snapping her gum and blowing bubbles ignored us and had to leave the bar to schlep beer and wine glasses. This place would appear to have all the makings of a great hometown pizza place its got decent food a good concept and a fairly nice setting but its clear the staff is not properly trained and management is non existent. A recipe for failure because no one wants to hang around for hours for pizza. Its just pizza!!!!

“huge tasty salads”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2012

The restaurant is casual and family friendly. The Poppyseed salad was enough for 2. The pizza is made while you watch. It is a thin crust. The pizza was great. Do not drink the tap water. The waitress warned us it had a sulphur taste. She was right. Order the bottled Saratoga water.

“Excellent Pizza”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2012

If you are a fan of thin crust pizza, this is the place for you. We have eaten here several times and have never been disappointed. They make a number of specialty pizzas that are hand made to perfection. They also have several salads that are paired perfectly with the pizza. This place tends to get real crowded and they only take reservations for large parties. The bar area is nothing special so the wait can seem long. Overall, very well worth the wait.
