“Classy New Year's Eve”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2014

We had an early dinner at Harvest on New Year's Eve. The atmosphere was warm and festive without being over the top. The service was just right. The prix fixe menu choices were all appealing and the food was very fine.

“Always Good and Unique Harvard Square Ambience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 23, 2013 via mobile

As a regular diner here I have to say it has always been very good. Every dish I have tried has been both interesting and delicious. Wine can be both reasonable all the way to expensive but they are all well chosen. I list this as one of my favorites in the Boston/Cambridge area. Worth a try.

“disappointing food, tiny portions, big price”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 20, 2013 via mobile

One of the worst meals I've had in a long time. Poorly cooked venison, no discernable seasoning, and tiny portions of the accompanying vegetables (3 bites of parsnip puree & 3 small brussels sprouts -- really!). And a 30 minute wait and a $32 price tag. Did I mention the mediocre wine?

“Very enjoyable Thanksgiving dinner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 2, 2013

This was our first Thanksgiving dinner at a restaurant and we walked away very pleased. I wen traditional with the turkey dinner and enjoyed it. The turkey, both white and dark, was moist and tasty, the stuffing flavorful and the cranberry sauce tangy. The mash potatoes were probably my least favorite time on the plate. The wine paring we did with dinner was also very well done. Service was attentative and overall a great holiday dinner away from home.

“Still great and going strong”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2013

For a romantic dinner, special occasion, or family get together, Harvest in Cambridge still excels at wonderful dining, a great bar, and a wonderful courtyard setting. Simply delightful all around, with seasonal menus. Classic Cambrdige spot, not to be missed.
