So lucky to have this place as one of our locals! One can always rely on beautiful food in gracious surroundings with such a lovely setting. The staff are always great and happy to assist with any special requests. Today we had oysters (plump and...fresh) and new season asparagus (divine) and shared a slow roast lamb shoulder which was just so good. It was nice to chill and let someone else do the work after a stressful week. Thank you Harvest!More

We were staying in the Marlborough region for the weekend celebrating a 40th wedding anniversary with friends. We chose Harvest Restaurant for this special occasion because of the beautiful setting. The food was beautifully cooked and we had excellent table service by our lovely waitress.

What a treat Harvest is from the moment you arrive at the immaculate, park-like grounds to the welcome at the front door. The meal was just amazing and perfect in every way, could not fault it one bit. Loved the dinning room and the extra...details on the table. The strawberry souffle was to die for and the service was friendly but professional, can't wait to come back and visit again.More

My friend and I had a birthday lunch at Harvest which was booked weeks in advance. Not only does the website advertise “vegan options “ but, being the token vegan, I verified at the time of booking the restaurant would cater to a vegan. I...was stunned to learn the only main available to me was gnocchi with asparagus sans the gnocchi which contained egg. I was given about 6 spears of thin asparagus, a few pieces of artichoke, a few olives , and a few random vegetables in a ragu type sauce. And all for the same price as if I had been served the complete meal even though the main ingredient was missing. This is not the experience I expected or deserved especially at their prices. I would have appreciated transparency when booking- just tell me catering to vegans is not preferred and please take the claim off of the website. As a vegan, I do not accept multiple choices of meals. I expect though to be served a complete meal that had a modicum of thought and care given to the preparation. Even serving me a vegan pasta or potatoes, which gnocchi is made from, would have been easy , or so one would think. But, to leave out the main ingredient is shocking. I have never had this experience at other fine restaurants in the area such as Arbor, Wairu River, The Kitchen at Rock Ferry, or Wither Hills. So imagine my surprise when I dined at such a highly rated restaurant. Clearly there was no thought that went into the preparation of the meal; in fact it was no meal at all. My lesson here is that the chef is not interested in catering to vegans which is the chef’s choice. However, it would have been appreciated to know this information before eating at the restaurant. I also think it unfair that the restaurant website indicates vegan options. A side of vegetables is not an option for a meal. I will end by writing that the serving staff was very good. Unfortunately, I will not return.More

We spent a lovely afternoon at Harvest . 6 people and the service and food was once again top notch . It is a stunning setting , and following a lovely lunch a walk around the beautiful gardens just tops it off nicely . Friends...were from Wellington, and were very impressed . Harvest is often our “ go to “ when friends visit from out of town, for all of the above reasons .More

Outstanding food and service in amazing location. Our ferry crossing from Wellington was delayed which ended up making us 45 minutes late for our booking. We did inform them of our late arrival and they kept the booking for us made us feel extremely welcome...when we finally arrived. Could not fault the food or the service highly recommendMore

So we started badly - our fault not their's. Our ferry was late and we were rushing - overshot the drive (note its a little hard to find at night) but they rung to check everything was ok and we were still getting there (had...let them know earlier we would be 15-30 mins late - we were 45mins). So lovely and understanding on phone and let us know that kitchen would be closing soon but that they could still feed us - thank goodness! On arrival - wow - such a magical setting - the building and chapel all lit up. From the outside to the inside it did not disappoint - amazing art (particularly the very large Karl Maughan) , comfy seats, great service and the food - where do I start. The food was lovely - steak cooked just right, lovely vege dish for the vegetarian and an extensive wine list. Won't talk about dessert except to say don't share - you'll end it all. The price was really reasonable as well - pleasantly surprised by the bill. All in all 10/10 - we'll be back and might even stay. Thanks for accommodating us and be patient about our tardinessMore
