Food and drinks are delish. We wanted the tavern menu but didn’t know they don’t have,it on Saturday night. So it was a very expensive dinner.

Delicious menu options with wonderful wine list. Piano in the main room was lovely but quite loud to dine in the same room. Tuna appetizer and NY Strip and Salmon main dishes were delicious. Service was ok. I needed to request more bread, silverware, and water refill on several occasions with reminders. Regardless, I look forward to going back.

First time at this establishment, place seemed to have good reviews online. I must say, my wife and I were not impressed with the ambiance, service, and the food. This seems like a place for older retired folks not millennials going out for dinner. Food wasn’t that great, portions are small, food had no flavor. For the price you pay, quality, and service didn’t not match. Not sure why this place is rated so high, but we will not be returning.

Harvest Moon is our go-to place for special occasions. And it just seems to get better and better. Absolutely fresh, seasonal ingredients artfully used and enticingly presented by knowledgeable and unobtrusive servers. And all of this offered in a charming early 19th-century stone manor. It doesn’t get better than this!

We went for Thanksgiving Dinner and were very impressed. It was not your conventional turkey platter. There was a creative twist on the turkey, mashed potatoes and stuffing and all were delicious. Amazing mushroom soup to start and we finished with a very inventive “turkey” mousse which was actually chocolate and hazelnut. We will definitely return.

Host moved us from the bar area to the dining area because she realized three women out want to talk to each other and the piano player was loud in the bar. We appreciated that greatly.

But did not go over specials, we ask for tea and we waited a while for it to arrive. I know the waiter was running short on help. All in all I would go back for and other dinner.

A simply charming dining room, attentive service and a gourmet meal. The menu read like a home cooked holiday dinner, rich and comforting but it was the carrot-ginger soup that stole the show for me. Most enjoyable was that we were able to converse comfortably with the piano playing in background. We did not feel rushed and thoroughly enjoyed our evening there. Highly recommended.

They hate customers and don’t want people to come. Crazy for a nice place like this, but they do not like it when you show at 7:30. They also do not answer the phone and loudly talk about it. The bartender slams things to make sure you know he does not want you there. The old saying: “the fish stinks from the head”. The owner must know that this is going on as it is costing him / her business.

Where do I begin? As we walked in the piano player was so loud it was impossible to hear the person next to you. I felt bad for the people even closer to him than my family. The waiter, Jonah was horrible. It took some time for him to acknowledge us and when he did he seemed rushed and unapologetic. Then the real wait began. We ordered drinks and eventually got them and ordered our meals. Three simple pasta dishes and a hamburger along with a salad and an appetizer. The salad and appetizer came out in a somewhat acceptable amount of time but the time between clearing those plates and the main course was totally unacceptable. There was a time of 30 mins at one point where there was not one person that came to our table. We had to ask the hostess about our food. Our glasses sat empty without a single inquiry about refills. Then after asking our food came out. It was underwhelming to say the least. My wife, whose birthday we were there to celebrate, had clams with linguini and they were so sandy that they were almost inedible.
My wife and I went Harvest Moon almost 20 years ago the night I proposed to her. It was our special place when we had something special to celebrate. I thought this time we would bring the kids to show them the place where mommy and daddy went after I asked her to marry me. After this experience I’m sure they are wondering why mommy said yes!!!

Where else can you get homemade yeast rolls like only your Grandmother used to make? Homemade pasta? Fresh greens in your salad picked from the garden on the premises? An amazing array of top- quality produced, REAL foods. Go try it out. We can’t wait to go back try the pizza (also homemade crusts!). Yum!

Harvest Moon is one of the finest dinning venues in central New Jersey. The menu selections are always superb and prepared to perfection by the chef/owner. The service is excellent and the piano player on Friday and Saturday night is a special treat. Take a moment to view the landscape filled with flowers and the vegetable garden. Harvest Moon is our favorite restaurant for a fine meal.
