Let's start with the good. At the end of the meal, the server brought free desserts to apologize for the terrible service. The assortment of parfaits were original and tasty.

My trout was cooked well, but there were only a handful of herbs masquerading as a vegetable. My mother would not be pleased...

Now the bad and ugly. Although there were empty tables, service was slow, inattentive, and our server basically didn't give a crap. The noise was so bad that you couldn't hear the person next to you, or the server.

And the menus were printed in a style that was almost unreadable given the lighting level. Dim lights are nice, but then you have to use a bigger font on the menu.

We had a mixup with the wine, caused in part by the noise (server didn't hear us clearly) and lighting (couldn't read the wine label to verify that the server brought the right one.

BTW, $60 for a screw cap wine? C'mon!

And this was only a Thursday night. On Saturday night it must be worse

So if you go, try Monday when it might be quieter. Bring a flashlight. And a hip flask. Order a side vegetable or salad to make your mother happy. And, yes, complain because those parfaits are really good.

Really enjoyed the food, especially the fresh salad. Everything was very well prepared and appropriate portions. Service was good - not overly intrusive and waiter had good knowledge of the options on the menu. The price was reasonable maybe slightly higher than what I would pay for a meal with drinks for 2, but given the high quality of the food it was fair value.

Never have a bad experience here. Booked for 6 of us to celebrate a birthday and we arrive an hour earlier than reserved (mid day) and it wasn't a problem to get seated. My sister has a gluten allergy - so this is her favorite place too. Food is outstanding and service is top notch.

The food is good and quite creative, the service exemplary, but the noise level during the busy evening dinner time verges on painful. I’ve heard it’s more pleasant—at least bearable—earlier in the day, but my experience of several evening dinners is that it’s next to impossible to hear the person seated across the table. Live amplified music seeping from the bar area only makes it worse. I’ve enjoyed the meals I’ve had there in terms of the food but Harvest Newtown isn’t anywhere near the top of my list when I’m choosing where we go for dinner.

We really enjoyed our meal at Harvest. We made a reservation and got seated as soon as we came in. Our server was great, helping with allergy info, recommending dishes and checking on us frequently (but not too much).

All of the food was excellent- we had the potstickers, bouillabaisse, teriyaki bowl and wave steak.

My only complaints is I thought a few of the items were a bit overpriced and the lighting was so low we all needed to use the table candle to read the menu (and were not that old!)

Food was good; service was good - not rushed, and personable.
Noise level of Kitchen was annoying - we were in the open area next to the booths by the kitchen.
Wine was very pricy.

We received a gift card for here, so we cashed that in last night. Our food was very, very good. We were actually very surprised. We looked at the menu prior to our reservation and we were certain we would be a “one and done” here. Not so after our experience. The menu is limited, I would probably only try another two or three items on it, but I am a very picky eater. Our reservation was early evening,not extremely busy when we arrived, but by the time we left there were people waiting to be seated. I suggest making a reservation if you don’t like to wait. The noise level increased dramatically as the dining room filled. We didn’t spend time at the bar, however it looked spacious and well stocked. We ordered the jerk chicken flatbread, as well as the Asiago flatbread. Our main meals were the pork chop and lemon thyme chicken, both were superb, we opted for dessert, we had a peanut butter chocolate dessert and a vegan mango one. I’m sorry that I can’t recall the exact names used on the menu. Both desserts were quite nice as well. Our bill came to just over one hundred dollars. It was on the more expensive side, so we probably would dine here often, it’s just not something we typically do, spend over one hundred dollars on a single meal for two people. We don’t typically order appetizers, but if we do, we usually share one. One flatbread is sufficient for several people. We not big dessert orderers either, but we decided to try them. They aren’t large, a little bigger than a shot glass, but again sufficient. The portion sizes are what normal sized portions should be, don’t expect an overwhelming amount of food, as I side the portion is the size of what a true portion is to be. The food was played very nicely. As it is said, you first eat with your eyes. I would suggest to everyone to give it at least one go, I think you’ll be gay you did.

Enjoyed several appetizers from your Spring Menu for my dinner--very flavorful, plenty to take home for another meal!
Service, drinks were great, as usual. Busy Friday night, gets loud-not sure how this can be addressed.
Will be back again, for sure!

My sister has celiac and lots of food allergies. It was wonderful that she communicated with Tim before our lunch and had great follow through when we came on Friday. We loved the food, service etc. So happy we were seated in the upper deck where it is quieter. We plan another meal this week before she goes back to Houston.

Their food is excellent. They change their menu seasonally and include their share of organic or farm to table.

If you order the scallops like my wife did, it's 4 scallops, which to their credit the waitress warned us and offered us to buy a 5th, and a tasty but small serving of risotto for $27. Felt the value could be better for that. But there are cheaper choices.

Food was very good, we had one of their flatbreads, which are always good no matter what season and what selection. Fish tacos were great, as well as the perogies. Only complaint was we wanted to salt & pepper our food but had to wait a little before we could tell our waiter. They need to put salt & pepper shakers on all the tables instead of having to ask for them, especially when your food is hot and ready to eat. Prices could be a little better, but don't mind paying for good food.
