best food in st. louis – Harvest is the place t go if you want true local food and amazing flavor. i have travled around the US and i tell you it is hard to find great supurb food in the midwest for decent prices(mostly for the of fresh seafood). The food has grest fresh flavor, with a rustic feel. At harvest you can expect housemade sauces, desserts, and pretty much everything. No shortcuts here. Ita a wonderful dining experience. The service is friendly and informative. I highly recommeded.
Excellent – great food, great service, great atmosphere. This is one of our favorite restaurants in St. Louis. The wine list is incredible too.
Amazing Food, mediocre service – I had the pleasure of dining here on numerous occasions, and had never been disappointed once. Prompt seating, extensive wine list, and superb food best characterize this cozy place. The heavenly pan seared foie gras is a must have! The menu is seasonal, but I recommend always going for steak (Ribeye and Hanger are juicy and tender) or seafood (flavorful and nicely prepared). For dessert I almost always go with the house specialty bread pudding.
My only complaint is the service. Waitresses are unattentive and lack the knowledge and professionalism to match a place of this ambiance. Also, for a place everyone raves about going for special occasions, they don't actually do anything special for you even if you tell them in advance.
This is our top choice for special occasions – Harvest continues to delight us - wonderful food, fine service, and a classy atmosphere. This is a place for birthdays and anniversaries and just anytime you want to experience a top-notch restaurant all around. The menu changes by the season, but the beet salad is excellent, as well as the buffalo oysters. The signature dessert is the brioche bread pudding, but they have been experimenting with some intriguing ice cream (lemon rosemary...)
Too bad it's crowded and noisy – While the cuisine is great we found the tables crowded close together and had to raise our voices to hear each other.
A trendsetting clientele is outshined by the culinary masterpieces of a Wolfgang Puck protege. – The Scene
Whether you're a gentleman wooing a lover, a businessperson entertaining a client or just an appreciative gourmand, Harvest is one indulgence you shouldn't miss. Harvest's natty decor parallels its innovative cuisine. If you can take your eyes off the restaurant's good-looking patrons, the focal point of the room is a magnificent fireplace.
Executive chef Steve Gontram, who hails from Wolfgang Puck's Postrio, is all about flavor. He calls his culinary style "rustic American," and his dishes feature regional ingredients like Hudson Valley foie gras, Maytag blue cheese and Ozark ham. The seasonal menu at Harvest comprises updated classic dishes that highlight complex, vibrant flavors. Gontram prefers to let the radiant flavors of the food shine through by seasoning it merely with salt, freshly ground pepper and olive oil.
Great Dinner Out – I enjoyed our dinner @Harvest. The server was attentive and very well informed regarding the menu, but not intrusive. The bar was well stocked, the bartender made a great cosmopolitan and the wine list is very good. The food was flavorful...I especially liked the roasted beet salad and the braised veal shoulder. I would recommend this place.
Harvest of Great food – As close as you get to the type of great food in New York or California without being there!! I go everytime I'm in St. Louis!! I enjoy the wine list and the way it pairs with the meal.
Very relaxing, quaint atmosphere. Good for very small groups. Excellent food, although a little over-priced.
harvest is overrated. i too, am not impressed with their service. i paid 20 bucks for what was basically a boneless skinless chicken breast soaked in butter. there are many many restaurants around st.louis that are more worth visiting.
