The team are always so warm, friendly and really go above and beyond.
The food is always incredible (I treat myself to a tasting menu and wine pairing), unique and always pushes the limited of creative dining.

Flavours were good but really not good value particularly when marketed as share plates. Would have expected a whole cauliflower for the price charged and both the fish and pork were over done. Disappointing...

Right from the beginning we were welcomed by personable and attentive staff. The venue is beautiful and comfortable. The menu selections are varied, yet consistently well-presented and delicious. Very happy with our evening at Harvest!

Lots of good reasons todine at Harvest for a special occasion. But on a very hot day there was no ice in the sparkling water so it was tepid. Also very expensive.

Meal and our server were excellent. Had a huge issue with our booking as they said weeks before we arrived that dogs could sit on the terrace and we made the booking with a request for the balcony seating but when we arrived we were told our dog had to be tied up outside of sit on a small bench with walk ins out front. Wouldn’t recommend going if you have a dog. The actual verandah inside the restaurant looked lovely though.

We loved finding Harvest on our way north from Sydney but were expecting that we would find a couple more vegan options on the menu (due to the name of the restaurant). We managed at lunchtime but on our return journey the breakfast at Harvest Deli was disappointing. Just a birchermuesli and not very nice.

Always good! Been for both Breakfast and Lunch numerous times and it has become a favourite on our radar. We always try to make a point of taking overseas visitors and interstate there when they visit us.

I took my daughter for breakfast to celebrate her birthday. It was lovely that the staff remembered this fact from the booking and wished her a happy birthday. The service was lovely and the breakfast was delicious. Always a lovely ambiance there and we could have spent hours there.

We enjoy stopping here for lunch to break up a drive to from the Mid North Coast to Brisbane and it never disappoints. The food is absolute top quality and the wine list is good. Topping off the experience is a balmy, tropical, relaxed ambience and a great deli next door with the best olive sourdough we’ve ever tasted. After lunch, we enjoy taking a stroll through the cute shops and antique stores at Newrybar.

We thoroughly enjoyed lunch at Harvest last Tuesday. The booking process through Open Table is simple and a confirmation email and text message are sent the day prior. Staff were very attentive and professional and the food absolutely delicious. We love that Harvest source produce locally and incorporate bush food indigenous to the area into their menu.

We had an enjoyable lunch on Thursday. I was however very annoyed to be asked to pay a surcharge for use of a standard VISA credit card.
I checked your emails and menu and cannot find any advice or warning that a surcharge would be incurred!
I do not carry large amounts of cash and was most at this levy. I rightly complained to the staff but to no avail!
We regularly visit Byron and always come to Harvest but have not had this experience before.
We would have enjoyed a second meal during our stay but went elsewhere.
Very annoyed customer

We had a late booking (8pm) due to having to get kids into bed before heading out for special anniversary dinner. Understand that it was a Wednesday night, was busy when we got there, but soon most other customers were leaving. It then felt like we were then being rushed through our dinner by staff, with our mains coming a minute after our entre's cleared etc. The staff then proceeded to clean up around us. Including blowing out table candles etc to the point where there was no ambience at all. There also seemed excessive staff hovering around which in turn made us feel uncomfortable. For a fine dinning expensive venue I just felt like they could have done better.

We dined at 6pm and was given a private table in a quiet corner. Several staff served us - all were friendly and informative, taking time t answer questions and explain the food and wine. We chose the 5 course degustation with wines and were delighted glass by glass, and plate by plate! To top it off, the Forager came and spent time discussing the wild and native foods with us - so not only divinley delicious, but delightfully educational as well. Thanks all for your care and consideration.

Absolutely beautiful food, wonderfully presented. Almost all staff extremely friendly. Only minor down side was the sides.. salmon was very generous, bacon was tiny.. one very small piece. Meals on the smaller side generally, but delicious. Would also be great to have a little more variety on the menu, I’m certain there used to be a really great pancakes. Overall, 4 out of 5.

This visit didn’t measure up to previous experiences. The lunch menu was limited and our very knowledgeable waitress never smiled. We didn’t feel our usual connection with Harvest. What we were served (the pork) was excellent, but small portions.

Service was absolutely terrible. Trying to do to much without executing anything well. Poor wine choice, no explanation of the menu and the cocktails were limited. Just an average experience for a hatted restaurant.

Lovely setting, good service. Food was a little disappointing. The ocean trout sashimi was a little tasteless and the carrot cake dessert was pleasant but nothing to write home about. Yhere were some delicious dishes such as the beetroot salad.
