About Events with Harvest Private Dining
Squirreled away in and unassuming Harvard Square breezeway, Harvest is an attractive option for birthdays, rehearsal dinners, and other special occasions. The private dining room looks out over an intimate courtyard and is situated right behind the kitchen for easy access. Factor in Chef Mary Dumont’s seasonal menu, a glass of wine, and a roaring fireplace, and it adds up to an elegant home away from home.
The Fireplace Room at Harvest is a fully private function space that will accommodate up to 35 guests for a seated service, and up to 45 guests for a standing cocktail reception. The anteroom to the Fireplace Room may also serve as a cocktail area; a wall with a swinging door separates the two spaces. The gas fireplace may be turned on and off depending on the preference of the guests.
• Standing Capacity: 45
• Sitting Capacity: 35

The Semi-Private Alcove is located in a quiet corner the front of the restaurant. Although it is not fully private, it is isolated so that no other guests will be walking through the space. The Alcove may accommodate up to 24 guests for a seated service and 35 for a standing cocktail reception.
• Standing Capacity: 35

Harvest’s renovated patio offers an open air option for cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, a seated meal, or both. The patio now offers fans and heaters throughout the space, as well as a canvas covering that provides shade, as well as protection from inclement weather. The patio is accessible through the Main Dining Area as well as the Brattle Room. Rental of the Patio or a Portion of the Patio is available with rental of the Brattle Room, or a Restaurant Buy-Out. We do not offer the Patio by itself in order to ensure there is space for your event in the case of extreme weather conditions.
