upscale but friendly - Edit

Has some unusual dishes well beyond the typical vegan imitation sandwiches. The downside is that it may be difficult to choose. The space makes for a nice romantic atmosphere perfect for a date. Reservations are recommended.

Pros: changing menu, organic, fresh and seasonal

Cons: reservations may be needed

creative, plant-based cuisine - Edit

Eating here is a culinary adventure. The choices are beyond the usual vegan fare. While not inexpensive, the attention to detail, generous portions, interesting and flavorful dishes make this well worth it. The outside is understated, but inside the ambiance is comfortable, spacious and you can actually talk to the people with whom you are eating! I suggest getting one of the corner booths if you are four or more as the tables are big. The staff are extremely accommodating and friendly, parking was right around the corner from the entry. Harvest Gratin, Harvest vegetable barbecue, Moroccan soup, potato cakes, cake and cheesecake - all delicious. Good coffee too.

Pros: Delicious food, Friendly staff, Comfortable

Cons: A little pricey, overly large tables

Best in PDX - Edit

Over the last few months Harvest is become my favorite restaurant. The food has caught up with the perfect atmosphere, and it feels like the first grown up vegan restaurant in the area. They continually change up their menu and always come up with new and exciting dishes that never disappoint. The owner and staff have created a special atmosphere - it always looks gorgeous, the noise level is just right and everyone is super friendly. It's the vegan restaurant you've always wanted but never thought you'd get. Oh - and their weekend brunch is the best! Check out Harvest - there's no place like it.

Pros: Great atmosphere and perfect noise level, Gluten, nut and soy free options, Great service

Cons: NONE

bad awkward service. - Edit

My boyfriend and I came at 8pm on a Tuesday night. There were only 4 other tables, yet the host was sweaty, running around busy doing a million things. This place is just improperly staffed. We got a bad vibe when we got there. After being there for 20 minutes, we ended up just leaving before we ordered drinks or food.

A part of me died and went to Heaven! - Edit

My omni friend and I decided on Brunch today at Harvest at the Bindery. I've never been here before and was nervous that it would not be up to par with non vegan food. Let me tell you we were both in Food Heaven at the first bite of their French Toast. I mean the sounds we made during this decadent moment might make you think we were shooting an Herbal Essences commercial live. Hahaha! This was by far the best French toast I've ever had in my life....EVER!!!! It was incredibly worth the price.

Pros: Great Service, Casual Ambience, Amazing Food

Cons: N/A

Excellent all around - Edit

I'm glad to report that my high expectations based on the stellar reviews were more than met. Food was phenomenal. Service was casual but warm and friendly. The dining area is spacious with the tables nicely spaced. I really liked that most dishes were available in small (as in appetizer) or large (entrée) portion sizes, which means you can sample a bunch of different things in one sitting turning it into a tapas kind of fare. It does boggle the mind why more restaurants aren't doing this already.

The food is designed to be not too fancy or complicated, but rather more rustic and down-to-earth. Yet everything we tried was well prepared and packed with flavor. The complimentary cornbread set our evening off to a great start. We then enjoyed the roasted carrots, the rosemary potato cake, the pulled trumpet mushroom, and the whole grain spaetzle. All plates were cleaned. While there was no way we could pass up dessert, we were a bit bummed that they had just run out of their chocolate hazelnut pie. We went ahead with the only other option—an apple cobbler topped with coconut whipped cream. And boy was it scrumptious! Talk about a blessing in disguise.

Sure, this place isn't cheap, but it's not expensive either. I thought the value was right considering they source their ingredients as organic and local as possible. I'm definitely coming back.

Pros: delicious food, most items available in small portions, good value

Fantadtic! - Edit

Pros: excellent service, complementary corn bread, delicious

Outstanding - Edit

My husband and I have eaten at Harvest every week since we discovered it last month. It is absolutely outstanding. The beauty is they use vegetables in season and don't try to make them replicate a meat dish. They let them shine on their own. We have taken many non-Vegan friends and family here and they all love it. Be sure to try the complimentary cornbread. It is the best I've ever had. The brunch is also outstanding.

Pros: Great Service, Excellent Food, Good value

Gourmet vegan experience - Edit

Based on the HappyCow reviews I had to try Harvest as The Bindery and I am happy to say I was not disappointed. Both the food and service were fabulous. This is a first rate upscale gourmet vegan restaurant (but not stuffy or overdressed -- this is Portland after all). Not cheap, but not expensive given the quality of the food and the service/atmosphere. Great for a special occasion or your first vegan date. Also has an extensive wine selection.

Note: do not be put off by the slightly seedy surroundings (it is in the Hollywood district of Portland, right down the street from a couple of adult "toy" stores and marijuana dispensaries). This is a very nice restaurant with an upscale atmosphere. I have no doubt it is in the vanguard of a wave of gentrification that will soon wash over the entire area (there are actually some very pleasant-looking residential neighborhoods quite near by).

Pros: great farm-to-table food, lots of gluten-free options, good wine list

Cons: neighborhood

Hearty and delicious brunch! - Edit

My new favorite brunch joint in NE! Filling portions, great coffee, and it's all local and vegan. Nice ambiance and not too crowded at 11 on a Saturday. I had the biscuits benedict, piled high with seitan and smothered in sauce. ******** fantastic. Drinks were kinda pricey ($8+) But all in all a great experience.

Continually Impressed - Edit

The first time I went was for a friend's birthday. I didn't get too excited about the menu. It just wasn't what I was in the mood for. I got soup (which was meh) and a potato cake with a turnip cream and I think it had greens? More things, I'm sure. And I split the sweet corn cake with coconut whipped cream and fresh warm blueberries. Sh*t, that was excellent. Excellent.

Then I took my dad there and we each had a salad, both great. And then we split a Pulled Trumpet Mushroom BBQ platter. Wow, y'all. Wow.

I went back for brunch a few weeks later and split the Broiled Fruit French Toast (they use Little T bread!) and the Hash Brown Caserole.
Dang. A+.

Pros: farm to table, elegant , fresh

Perfect! - Edit

Best restaurant I've ever been to in over 20 years of vegan dining. We loved it! They've only been open for 3 months and are clearly already very popular.

We shared an Arugula Salad, the Rosemary Potato Cake, and Griddle Squash. It was a good thing we only got the small portions of each, so we could top it off with the delicious desserts of the day. See photo of menu.

Don't miss this place if you're ever in Portland!!

Pros: Deliciously balanced flavors, Great selections, Good prices

Cons: Street parking, but ok, Small for the popularity it will bring
