Food was phenomenal, service was excellent.
Not just knowledgeable and friendly but above and beyond!
Such an amazing variety of delicious curated wines with great depth coming from the sommelier (and other staff).

We decided to order a few mains to share which was a great idea, as we got to enjoy a variety of the yummy mains on offer. Cocktails were good also and are waitress was exceptional.

Servers were very polite and helpful.
As long as the sun was under a cloud our table was fine, but when the sun was shining we were getting cooked alive.
A $20 cakage fee? That was a first especially since we ordered 2 desserts and racked up a $90 per head bill (no wine or beer ordered).
The food woud have been mmuch more enjoyable if the vegetables had not been drowned in oil.
I think at least one or two Plant Based mains dishes would have made our experience much more satisfying.

This is a "must do" dining location on the NSW far north coast.
We were a table of six, simultaneously celebrating two 40th wedding anniversaries and three significant birthdays. Food, wine and service (call out to Meghan and Yani, thank you) all EXCELLENT.

The only reason that I don't offer a perfect score (and this is certainly not limited to Harvest) is that 2 hour time limits, especially in a celebratory situation, do place a level of pressure on the experience. Yes, it's becoming the norm, however it does impose a gobble up quick sensation.

Bit of a let down. Harvest had come highly recommended but apart from the really lovely service, the food was pretty average. The oysters were badly shucked and full of shell. The greens were over-dressed and the dishes were tiny for the price. Shame as it was a special occasion. The staff were the highlight. Smiley and friendly. We won't be back.

The menu offerings were not of my liking this time around. The waitress Megan was very rude following feedback given when she asked about our lunch experience. Her behaviour that followed ruined our dining experience prompting us to leave. To place a two seat table amongst large group tables is not a good idea as the noise from these large groups of people affects the dining experience. Harvest has amazing produce and yet the current menu doesn’t showcase these amazing ingredients enough which I believe is a missed opportunity.

Outside in ‘bar’ area was fine for us as we were on a trip north with our dogs & wanted a short stay with good food & service.

Dogs were allowed to sit at out feet.

Both food & service were excellent although food quite expensive.
