Cute restaurant in small community just east of Toronto. I will blame Covid19 for my bad experience. The servers appeared all "freaked out" about Covid19. Ordering is via your iPhone, waited a all while for the food. No water or interaction until then. Food was...not special at all. To add insult over injury I overhear the servers talking about how they were considering not allowing Torontonians to dine there. No decision required - I will make it for you. I am not coming back nor will my friends and followers.More

Last night we have met with a family from Ottawa in Whitby for dinner at Harvest Restaurant. What a great place, considering that at the present time only a patio is open for business. The food is very delicious: all the dishes we ordered. They...now have a touchless menu, order over the phone. All people who work there were very friendly and accomodating, considering that they work under stressful conditions. I strongly suggest all Canadians support this local gem.More

We attended a family function on the patio. I cannot say enough about the food, service or atmosphere. My burger and fries were great - juicy and delicious patty and crisp and hit fries. The view from the patio is really nice.

Took my wife here for an early Valentine's dinner (we like to avoid the rush) and even though the restaurant was very busy, the service and the food were great. Server was attentive and helped make our night special. We started with the cauliflower (which...is a must try) and had the duck along with steak and shrimp and both were flavorful and delicious. We shared an apple crumble for dessert. This place was a great choice. We had a great night and the live music was a nice touch. Will definitely return!More

Visited for their Winterlicious menu and the food was the best I've had in ages! Highly recommend the Pork Tenderloin and Crispy Cauliflower. Service was top notch.

We can’t say enough about the fantastic food this restaurant has to offer. From the unique flavours, the wonderful beautiful century home atmosphere and the kind service we have decided this is our new favourite place to eat. We are looking forward to trying their...outdoor patio by the creek in the summer! They also have live performers once and a while which adds to the romantic atmosphere if you wish to choose a cozy spot to dine.More

My wife and I dined at this beautiful restaurant last Friday and we reminded why this is one of our favourite restaurants. The meals were superb and the service was wonderful. I had the Braised Short Ribs and it was absolutely delicious!! We look forward...to to coming back again!More

I don’t normally only post positive reviews however, this “fine” dining experience gnaws at me. I’ll preface this by suggesting perhaps this restaurant had an off night. I am not generally a very picky person. That said, I don’t think the price reflects the quality...of the food here. I was here with two friends on a Friday night in December. I was surprised to see there were not many patrons in the restaurant at 6:30. One friend ordered some kind of (pricey) martini. She found it unappealing and small. When our orders were taken, we had already been sitting there for 45 minutes. Our meals were just “okay”; I’d rate at best 3 out of 5 and that’s being generous. The Quinoa cake dish looked like potato cakes mushed into balls with not much else. The short rib, although tender tasted like it had been doused in store bought bbq sauce. The “jerk” chicken wrap was tasteless and the special herbed fries were soggy and inedible. ( I have Jamaican friends and I know what Jerk should taste like) The waiter asked my opinion of the food so I was honest. Nothing was done to rectify nor did any manager come to speak with us. The young waiter was lovely and enthusiastic but seemed to lack experience waiting in a high end restaurant. We had sat there for some time before I finally asked for my bill as it was going on 10pm. Overall, a nice atmosphere but if you’re going to charge high end prices ($50+ For a steak), the food and service must reflect this or I’m afraid this place won’t do well. I usually ONLY support local non franchised restaurants so I hope Harvest can make some changes and improve. It has potential...More

It was a year ago that I gave my last review of this restaurant and I'm happy to say that our recent experience on the weekend was terrific. I was a little hesitant to go back after reading a few negative reviews but what brought...us back again was their amazing craft beer selection. So glad that we did return. I had the pork tenderloin with mushroom risotto which was incredibly delicious and tender. My husband had the spicy pasta which was also fantastic ( I had to try it!) but I'm not a chorizo fan so I left the meat. My favourite mushroom bruschetta was still on the menu ( hooray) and still as delicious! We were greeted promptly and seated in a comfortable area. Music was at a perfect level - not too loud so we could actually hear each other but loud enough that our neighbours couldn't hear us. Our server was so wonderful - friendly and courteous. We've had him before so it was nice to see a familiar face again. We will definitely be returning.More

I recently visited for a special birthday lunch with my family. Service provided by Lynn was excellent and my steak was cooked to perfection. We were seated in one of the more private rooms upstairs. Everyone enjoyed their meals and the portions were generous enough...to take some home. Thank you Harvest for making this a special day!!More

Yes, I think it would be very kid friendly as there is a "Kid's Menu". The restaurant is divided into sections that would be perfect for diners that want a family dinner.
