It was a great experience and the staff were very friendly. The chef was able to accommodate my wife’s allergy which was amazing. Thank you. You made her birthday great.

Though the tea and the view was good. The food was underwhelming for the price and room was so hot it made it hard to drink the tea. Really good service though.

I always enjoy a meal at the hotel MacDonald. The service was excellent and they made an effort to make our anniversary special. Food was delicious but it was not hot when it came to the table. This is the reason I put 4/5 stars for the food. I will absolutely go there again. Beautiful hotel and excellent restaurant with attentive service staff.

After attending serval occasions at Hotel Mac this was the worst yet as far as the quality of food. The potatoes were tasteless, my steak was under cooked. I requested med rare and it was totally bloody and rare.. The scallops were not cooked and translucent. Very disappointed.

We celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary at Harvest Room. We had a great table with a beautiful view of the river valley. Service was fast and efficient and our server was attentive and friendly. We started with the parsnip and cauliflower soup which was amazing. For our main we had the tasting board for 2 with duck breast, lamb and sablefish. We chose the protein and the chef selected the sides. Everything on the board was delicious and it was more than enough for the 2 of us. We were too full to even attempt dessert. Maybe next time.

This was our first experience with the Royal High Tea and we loved it! It was a bit noisier than I had expected it to be, but I'm sure that was as a result of everyone just being so pleased with their experience. Our server, Jacob, was just wonderful! Professional, informative, helpful and so sweet!
We cannot wait to come again! How do I get the recipe for the crab and shrimp salad finger sandwich? So delicious!

I took a friend there for High Tea and we enjoyed ourselves but felt the staff when serving need more training on how to handle the teapots. They left water on the. table each time they poured the tea.
When I made the reservation I asked how long the High Tea experience lasted. The person told me 2 hours. At the time I thought this. would give us lots of time to relax, enjoy the experience and catch up on each other's year. It had been a long time since I had seen her. The staff member who served us was extremely infuriating due to the fact that he was rushing us. He brought the bill after only one hour and then asked us more than twice if there was anything else he could get for us. I feel this is a lack of training and if not training than this staff member should perhaps be stationed some where else. Other than that, the afternoon was enjoyable and I will come again. If I am rushed the next time I will make every effort to let the senior staff member know that I do not expect this kind of treatment.

Royal tea was such a treat! The food and service by Mitchelle was wonderful! We really enjoyed ourselves and would highly recommend anyone interested in tea to go!

The only thing I would change was the music. It was not on theme and I would have picked something a little calmer and light to listen to while I sip and enjoy the food.

Despite that one comment I would go back!
