Came in for a late night dinner. The beet salad was outstanding with very fresh ingredients and light flavors. My husband had the pork chop and while the flavors were great, the meat was slightly overcooked. I had the agnolotti pasta and greatly enjoyed it. Overall it was a very pleasant experience and priced well. We both left very full... More

Actually booked in here because we were late in planning and it was one of the only places with room for us on a Saturday. The staff, stressed from dealing with a large raucous house full of customers, managed to fit us in. Good bistro-ish menu, plenty of wine choices. Nice pasta.

The courtyard is the perfect spot for your romantic dinner or your group. The menu was fresh and creative. The wine list was delightful. The staff was knowledgeable and attentive. I strongly suggest booking a reservation several weeks in advance.

Our friends from Florida were in Sonoma to host a birthday lunch for me. The service, the food and the ambiance were great.

Excellent service, great food, and intimate outdoor dining. Harvest Moon refuses to gouge their customers with typical Napa prices minus the annoying crowds and stuffiness.

From the south, I appreciate use of "what's in stock" vegetables and "feels like home" meals. This was our favorite place on the Plaza. Don't judge by the entry - the courtyard in the back was darling - like we were eating in our backyard. Don't skip this jewel while in Sonoma. You're leave happy, satisfied and wanting to return.

Food was scrumptious. Wait staff better than average (one was in training) and mostly attentive. But the FOOD!!!! Worth whatever it takes to get it! Loved the ambiance outside!! It was a beautiful day!

Had dinner here twice out of three evenings - the food and service are incredible! Menu changes daily - which is a blessing and a curse, as you can't catch the same dish twice. Very creative food, in a beautiful outdoor space, a slice of heaven. Can't go wrong here... Very reasonable prices as well.

The vegetables are really good taste of themselves. Often times, vegitable available in supermarket tastes nothing just texture, but this is quite different. Main dish with meat was also well prepared and tasted well. The atmosphere is a Cafe but not a restaurant with white table cloth, but the dishes are worth for the money. Reservation is recommended

We booked a table at Harvest Mood Cafe because the menu looked intriguing and we were surprised that it was a farm to table restaurant. The food was fresh, local and delicious! It was also fun that they had old movies playing in the background on the patio. Can't wait to go back!
