not great - Edit

Harvest has a nice atmosphere and a lot of vegetarian choices (it is all veg) but surprisingly few vegan options. It is not very modern as its vegetarian menu relies a lot on cheese which I think is sort of past it now most people are vegan or expecting something more. On our last visit we only had two vegan options to choose from and had to wait an hour for them to be served. They were good but not good enough for the price and wait time.

Pricey and bland - Edit

Found this place to be quite expensive for the flavour the dishes offer. Small servings and bland in my opinion.

Good place for a romantic dinner - Edit

For my partner's birthday, I was looking for good quality food and a quiet place. Harvest is the perfect restaurant: small candles, friendly staff, a sophisticated presentation in the dishes... The only negative aspect is the creativity: as vegetarians, we are used to a variety of tastes that are not really used in an omnivore cuisine. At Harvest, it's traditional food with no meat. They don't make the most of all the vegetarian / vegan possibilities. But I think it's a good place to bring your carnivore friends, because the food is in line with the kind of tastes they are used to.

Pros: friendly staff, quiet and romantic place, tasty food, good presentation

Cons: not particularly creative

sooooooo bad - Edit

Usually I would never talk so badly about a vegetarian place, but this had to be the worst dinner I have ever had. My friend had the Gnocci, and she paid 23 bucks and literally got 4 pieces of it, in some tomato sauce with TWO pieces of lettuce. This meal was not even big enough to be considered an appetizer, I honestly thought it was a joke when they brought it out. I had the tofu skewers and for 22 bucks it was barely a meal as well. She brought it out and never checked on us once. We were all hungry when we left and we spent WAY too much money for that. I will NEVER go back, I wish I took a picture of the gnocchi, what a joke, biggest waste of money I couldn't even believe it.

Fantastic - Edit

This restaurant is fantastic for a nice night out with loved ones. The range is extensive and all vegetarian some menu items include: stuffed zucchine, tortelli with orange sauce, mushroom steak with pancake, gnocchi, gourmet savory , lasagne(or moussaka), curries and other asian style mains. I'd describe it as modern with italian influence. The desserts are to die for - try the sticky date pudding. You can BYO wine. I've lived in Sydney all my life and its rare to find such a nice vegetarian restaurant with such an extensive menu. Mains are $20+ as you'd expect to pay for a nice restaurant. Dont go here for a quick and cheap meal, go for a 3 course dinner and a lovely night out. Highly recommended and I'm suprised this restaurant hasn't been rated higher by others. Try it for yourself.

Pros: Nice dining vegetarian, Extensive vegie menu, Nice ambiance

Cons: Location is a little far, Not for cheap and quick meals

Nice atmosphere - Edit

We had a really nice night at Harvest. Yes, it is pricey, but as far as I can tell (I'm fairly new to Sydney), it's the only place you can go for a vegan meal that is more special than a tofu burger, and isn't asian (I love asian food, but need variety). My husband had the gnocchi (veganised)and I had the risotto (already vegan, I think). We were just so happy to have Italian vegan food we hadn't cooked ourselves, but it was also very tasty. We had an entree between us and one main each, and (with the salad they bought out with the meals) left feeling full. I get the point that others have about a lack of variety -- and this would hinder us going back too soon as well. But it was a nice experience and deserves more than two stars.

Pros: great service, ambiance, quiet

Cons: $$$, more vegan options needed

Peasant Food - Edit

Harvest is ok. It only has 3 meals which are vegan amongst all those vegetarian ones. You have to order entree and mains, otherwise you won't be full. Mains are priced about $15-$25. We have the dips and breads for entree which is yumm and they change it to be vegan. The garlic bread is filling and they give you free salad. But all we like is gnocci for mains and it comes in one of those small lasagne dishes that i remember pizza hut used to serve their lasagne in a decade ago - so too small, you really need two servings, but at such prices, we usually leave hungry, but nice for a romantic dinner out - which is the only time we go, but I don't think we'll go again. Too many other better vegan restaurants around in Sydney.

Pros: free salad, romantic (rustic), a la carte

Cons: slow service, small meals, limited vegan menu

Harvest - Edit

Without wanting to sound really snobby, I went here last year when I was back in Sydney and almost forgot what I ate. The menu really needs to move with the times and ditch the staple cheese and gnocchi angle! I was expecting more from what I'd read. These days its menu is what you'll see in the veggie sections of other carnivorous restaurants with the disadvantage of it not necessarily tasting as good. What's more it doesn't specialise in a coherent 'style' of food, apart from it being vegetarian. The restaurant needs more competition from the non-Chinese veggie sector, or it needs to research how established places like Manna Veg in London still manage to surprise the punters.
That said, it was nice service, a nice neighbourhood location and the wine was good. As Randy Jackon says it was 'just OK for me man'.

Pros: Local atmosphere

Cons: Boring menu
