    The bar is a find. The patio is perfect. I love and trust Harvest for any meal. It's the place we keep returning to and always are comfortable and love the food.

    Nestled in a hidden spot in Harvard Square for decades and featuring one of the area's nicest patios, Harvest continues to serve elegant cuisine with locally sourced ingredients. [Eater 38 Member] Read more

    Chef Mary Dumont's cooking is rooted in the canon, but with a light, modern touch: Think venison carpaccio crusted in Sichuan peppercorns, or skate with fennel, chestnuts, and pumpkin. Read more

    Excellent restaurant (and small bar). For years was my local hangout in Cambridge, though it was much more casual then than it is now. Still a favorite of mine any time I'm ion Cambridge!

    (Best of Boston 2013-DESSERT) Improper Bostonian says, "It's no wonder Food & Wine crowned Brian Mercury the People's Best New Pastry Chef-East Region. The desserts he's crafting look exquisite."

    We had an amazing lunch at Harvest. The fish tacos were delicious and the wild mushroom soup was the best I've ever had.

    We loved the Seafood Ceviche & Scallop Crudo. Field Strawberry & Lavender Salad, and the English Pea Agnolotti.

    Duck and very user friendly wine list. I'd you appear confused they will bring out three options to try.

    The staff turnover rate is low meaning that it's a happy place. Always bodes well for good food and service.

    This is the place where you have dinner with your parents, your graduating kids or your significant other if that significant other is from Harvard. Cozy, quiet, elegant service. No surprises.

    The most underrated restaurant in the square, pretty much everything is great, but especially skin-on fish if it's on the menu.

    Food is great but fairly heavy on calories so take it easy. Service and staff is boarderline slow and could be friendlier.
