Lovely food but all very complicated dishes so that meant it was hard to find any simple accompaniments to the more sophisticated and intricate dishes.
Service was very rushed to the point we were interrupted 3 or 4 times in the first 20 mins to get our order to the kitchen. So it was not relaxed until we started eating and these aren't fast food prices! Were moved from our table before dessert, which wasn't so bad as the verandah is a lovely setting but I still object to not even being able to have a catch up over our first drink with our friends, without being badgered.

We had a lunch at Harvest during the week. It was our second time and we got even more impressed than before.
The dishes were beautifully presented with interesting subtle flavours and tasted amazing!!! I loved my barramundi with macadamia oil dressing for main and grilled octopus for we shared for entrees. Desert was to die for as well- we tried goats milk gelato with honey and macadamia crumbs. Servings were of good size- much more generous than other high end restaurants!!

Service and food was good, my only disappointment in my Roasted Barramundi main was that the fish was slightly over cooked.

I’ve been going to Harvest for the last 6 years and it never fails to dazzle.

As a special treat, someone’s birthday, time out with mum, drink with mates... it top of the list in the local area.

Look forward to MY special day when I’ll get treated to that lamb shoulder again:)

It’s a “local” but I had not been. I will definitely be going back - soon. Every dish we ordered and shared was delightful, complex and interesting. Our waiter excelled. And of course, the environment is hard to beat. Oh yes, and the wine list - all Aus and all interesting.

Harvest is an exceptional restaurant, ranking with Australia's finest. Not only is the food itself is exceptional, the staff displayed a passion for Harvest's core values, and an expert knowledge of the menu,. and the produce from which it is derived, that is rarely seen.

Hi there
Normally I rave about Harvest, but this time, not so much unfortunately.
The service was about the same and the food was delicious but the portions very small.
We ordered extra oysters to start and still came away feeling a little hungry.

We have visited Harvest a few times now and looked forward to celebrating our anniversary there.
However the food was rushed - (our starter arrived while we were still drinking cocktails and eating nibbles) and very overall the quality and taste was disappointing.
The raw fish was cut too thickly, the pumpkin tasted of nothing. I would hesitate before rushing back

We were put on a round table in the corner and found it hard to talk....
