Renee Kelly's Harvest Ratings and Reviews
We found it to be a fairly nice dining experience the food was good the portions were good but the price was a little over the top we are used to Johnson County restaurants and prices but the two of us by the time we left with tip was about 170 that's quite a bit for two people out dining but overall a good experience not a place we would frequent though
This place is great for its ambiance. The food was very well prepared. I think what was missing was the restaurant craft. Service was slow. I think no one had ever ordered the tasting menu before, so they were not ready for it when we did. The tasting menu was just what could have been ordered off the menu, and I think it would have been less expensive to just order the individual items. I was still hungry at the end of the meal.
The food was good along with the presentation. Was a great place for quiet conversation at the time frame we were there. The staff was very helpful and attentive to us. I got say the S'mores dessert was probably my favorite!!! Overall a great experience. Thanks.
This was my first experience at Harvest. We started with orders on the half shell, which were served with a vinaigrette. Then I ordered the beet salad with sheep's cheese and microgreens. It was very small yet delightful. I ordered the trout served with a millet, sauteed chard and sorrel. My husband ordered the chicken entree which had a delicious side of summer veggies. Everything was very good.
From the moment we entered, it was an great evening. They accommodated my wheelchair better than most. The craft cocktails were refreshing on a very hot night. Everything we had was fresh, done perfectly. Clearly made with love. My only question is why is this place a secret. I will be recommending Renee Kelly's Harvest to everyone. I can't wait to return.
The waitress seemed to spend much less time at our table than others, not sure if it was because my date and I were younger than the average patron and ordered relativity inexpensive meals. The food was good, but did not stand out from less expensive restaurants. Would likely not go back anytime soon.
This was my first visit to Rene Kelley's Harvest. I took my best friend to dinner there for her Birthday. We dined outside because the weather was perfect. The food was delicious...we did not try the desserts because we filled up on appetizers! The decor is stunning and the stone fireplace is beautiful...Can't wait to go back when Fall is in the air.
The food was excellent. The server was very attentive but as usual we waited for our food. I was pleased with my simple salad.The dressing was great . The trout was tasty. This is our special occasion restaurant of choice. I look forward to the chicken pot pie being on the menu.
We came here for Father's Day Brunch. I was a little surprised with how the waitress greeted us, no "hello" or "have you been here before" she just asked what we wanted to drink. They were out of the special that had pork belly so the wife had the standard breakfast and I had the biscuits and gravy. Both were very good, the portions were a little off on my meal, it was 2 biscuits and the whole plate was covered in gravy and a very small portion of breakfast potatoes that was on the verge of being too salty. Our child had the french toast and it was also very good. We had to wait quite a while to have a our coffee refilled but overall it was a good experience. I would go there again but probably not my first choice.
This place is a quiet gem. The food is incredible, not surprising given Renee Kelly is a world renowned chef. And the ambiance is really cool, residing as it does in a hundred year old castle that has been completely modernized. Do yourself a favor and schedule a meal here. It is going to the top of our list.
We spent 3 hours dining. One hour before any food was served which was really good when starters finally arrived. Then waited for the mains which again were good when they arrived. We waited several minutes for desserts which were ok. The servers were attentive. Really expect some under staffing somewhere. Appeared that one server was tending the entire room.
The food was good but lost its luster when the dining experience became so protracted. Probably won't be back.
Menu seems to of shrunk.... not many choices for appetizers to share. We ordered 2 cauliflower apps to share. Not enough aioli on the plate and overall bland. Our reservation was for 7pm on a Friday night . We were the only table inside!!!! Frankly that was a little creepy. Service was just ok.. there were 6 of us . 2 people ordered the scotch filet but only 1 was available????? Trout was terrific and a lovely presentation.
Not sure if we will be back.
Our group absolutely loved our experience at Renee's! We wanted to try a lot of things, so we were able to ask for a tasting menu option. The service and attention to detail was impeccable. From the variety of flavors, colorful dishes and delicious cocktails and accommodating a celiac/gluten-free option, we would highly recommend this for a fun, group dinner experience.
Went with my family for Sunday brunch. The RK bites were fabulous, as was the rest of the food. My kids shared the amores pancakes and thought they were heaven. Was not busy at all. Outside area was lovely. Bring coloring books or something for the kids to do - have a kids menu, but wouldn't describe this place as exactly "kid friendly."
My husband and I celebrated his birthday at Renee Kelly's and were very happy with the experience. All the wait staff were friendly and helpful. We would highly recommend this restaurant and will go back again to enjoy the wonderful food. Thanks for a beautiful evening.
Harvest was the perfect choice for our group to meet. Its beautiful, cozy atmosphere is welcoming. I asked for a table in a more separate space for quiet conversation and they delivered. I asked for a cake and the cake was sitting in the middle of the table when we arrived, along with a special message for each member of our group that couldn't fit on the cake. It was a very special touch that made all my friends feel special. The dinner menu was more pricey than we thought, so I wasn't sure choosing this restaurant was a good idea, but the delicious food that everyone ordered seemed to make up for any concerns about the prices. Everyone raved about their ravioli, salmon, and clams and mussels! Harvest was a good choice for our special friends' dinner get-together.
The food was absolutely delicious. We had a party of seven and sampled a good cross-section of the menu. Everything was outstanding. The service, on the other hand, was very poor. Our server was much more interested in chatting with a couple at a 2-top than he was in bringing food from the kitchen. I'll try Renee Kelly's again for the food and ambiance, but won't utilize that server again - ever!
This was our first visit to this restaurant. We had a very nice lunch, in general, but I was somewhat disappointed for having spent $100 there.
It took over 1/2 hour for our lunch to arrive, and not once during that time were we offered any bread or an apology for the wait so I would suppose that's normal. We didn't order anything super complicated, or off menu. It was good, but not great - as I had expected. We may return but would go for dinner not lunch.
We took my Mom there for dinner to celebrate Mother's Day and it did not disappoint. From our server to the menu choices - everything was absolutely spectacular. I love that the menu changes and that it's a farm to table menu.
It is a little pricey but the overall experience is SO worth it. I would highly recommend this to our "city folk" who want to take a walk on the wild side in the burbs.
Truly amazing cuisine.
