Harvest Moon Cafe: "Good Effort" Sonoma Restaurant Tip by jakelorenzo

Sonoma Restaurants: 59 reviews and 90 photos

Small interesting looking restaurant. Husband chef and wife pastry chef. Menu changes daily and Chef Nick tries stuff. A stinging nettle and potato soup was delicious and unique. The food is inventive and always good, but somehow rarely excites. Pork confit was tasty, but generally not as good as the carnitas at most of the local Mexican restaurants. His ribeye steak was perfectly cooked, just a bit small. Sunchoke and celery salad was delightful. Killer carrot cake. Wine list seems to get more local over time, with only one or two wines under $30. Free corkage on a bottle if you buy one from the list. Open for dinner only. Nice patio when weather is right.

Favorite Dish: Duck entree with delicious sliced duck, a confit duck leg and foie gras on toast. All delicious, but the polenta that came with it was rubbery and cold.
