Love Harvest. It's always a favorite. Wonderful waitstaff. Nice wine list, and perhaps the world's best grassfed burger and frites.

I reviewed Harvest in 2012, and gave it five stars then too. I've been going there since the late 1990s, and it's always been first rate. Others, like Rialto at the Charles, have come and gone, but Harvest continues its tradition of excellence. It's been...More

Located in the heart of Harvard Square, Harvest celebrates the modern New England table. We present contemporary New England cuisine focused on the region’s freshest ingredients. Tucked along a cobblestone pathway in the heart of the square, Harvest provides a welcome respite from the fast-paced world outside. Inside is a combination of soothing earth tones, supple banquettes, dark woods and pastoral art that lend an air of understated elegance. Our newly re-designed open kitchen, spacious bar, and fireside dining complete the comfortable interior. Graceful linden trees offer shade to the Garden Terrace, our private garden café that boasts fireside dining, blooming flower boxes, and heaters for the chilly nights of spring and fall. Noted by Travel & Leisure as a Harvard Square classic, Harvest has also been lauded for its New England Cuisine by Zagat, Boston Magazine and The Improper Bostonian.
