Like the wonderful Basque Bakery on the other side of the town square, this is one of the few moderately priced places to eat in Sonoma, which as a tourist destination tends to be higher-end. As at the busy bakery, the ambiance here is very local and the service was very friendly and efficient. Most importantly, everything we ordered was... More

Second time to have dinner here. Took my husband here for his birthday and the food is always delicious. He had the steak and I had a trio of meat with veggies and broth. We had Meyer lemon cheesecake. I took one star off because I made reservations and was seated in the bar. There were two top tables available.... More

Local, love this place. Awesome service, locally sourced food, ever changing menu. Sit inside and watch your meal being prepared in front of you, or enjoy the outside patio. If anyone asks me where to eat in Sonoma, this is the first place I recommend.

We also visited Harvest Moon on New Year's Eve. I agree with the preceding review that HMC is crowded and expensive, but what the heck, it was NYE and we're on the Plaza in Sonoma. The servers were busy and service a bit slow, but we weren't in any hurry. The four-course dinners were of variable quality....quail and steaks got... More

We had the ribeye steak and the sole filet. The steak was delicious but a little underdone. The fish was perfectly cooked and the seasoning was a bit subtle but the rice that came with it was very bland so overall the fish dish was lacking in savoriness and flavor. Service was good. Overall a nice experience.

My husband and I shared the rib eye steak which was absolutely mouth-watering with the salsa verde and Zinfandel sauce. We were especially impresssed with the chicory salad - the smoked bacon, grilled onions and Gruyere were simply divine! We had brought our own wine, which we had purchased at a local winery earlier in the day, but the corkage... More

Was recommended to try Harvest Moon Cafe by the Mission Inn Hotel concierge. Was the best meal since landing in USA. Ingredients all fresh and great wine list.

We were outside and covered and it was really nice. The highlight of our night was the server. One person in our group was vegan and she was totally accommodated. The food is excellent. It was so cool to walk by the open the open kitchen and see the food being cooked. Loved this place!
