Our waiter went over the menu with us and pointed out some of his favorite dishes. There were so many choices that caught our attention, it was hard to pick. I opted for the special fish of the day, which was a crab crusted Alaskan halibut. I ordered it with spicy braised greens and of course some duck fat fries and garlic aioli. I was not disappointed at all with anything on my plate. The piping hot fish was cooked perfectly and the crispy crab crust added just enough texture and flavor without taking anything away from the fish. The braised greens were just mildly spicy, but that is a good thing since the fish did come with a curry based sauce that had some real kick to it. The garlic aioli that came with the fries was outstanding and it was hard to not finish every last fry! I was a big fan of my dish, and so was our friend Jenna who also ordered the same dish. If you see this on the menu again, I would highly recommend it.
Harvest offers a large wine list and a fully stocked bar. What we all appreciated most about the drink menu was the large selection of craft beer. They had around 40 different bottles and 4 draft selections which included a 3Floyds handle and a Jolly Pumpkin handle. For only $8 you can get a flight of all four draft brews and the 4oz pours were much closer to 6oz which made the deal even better. I was very pleased to find a very fresh keg of 3Floyds Dreadnaught on tap, something not too common around Cleveland. Cheers to Harvest for putting some very good craft beer on the menu to go with some very good food!
Atmosphere and Service
Harvest is a warm and inviting place that makes you feel very comfortable. I feel like I could walk in and have a beer at the bar, take my wife out for a fancy date night, or even head out to the patio for some small plates with friends. Either way, Harvest really has done well with the space! Our service for the night was excellent. Our waiter was knowledgeable about the menu, and was quick to move from table to table.
Good food + great beer list + inviting atmosphere + friendly service = we will be back for dinner again!
