Food portion were very small. Lamb, which was 42 dollars came in two small pieces of lamb. I paid less for lamb before and received a whole rack. Seemed like 90 percent of the customers had a groupon or coupon for dining.

The food was exceptional, our waiter was attentive and prompt and very helpful with any questions we had. Great view of the river valley and even the manager came to make sure we were enjoying our evening.

Great experience. We brought our little two year old. And as she was start to fuss before dinner the server brought out a little toy for her to play with and she loved it. The service was tremendous and we felt cared for.

We went for my 40th birthday celebration and it was very special. Our server was attentive and efficient. He brought a small, complimentary dessert to me as we were finishing up. The setting was quiet and intimate. My family and I had a really nice time.

This is a wonderful restaurant for special occasions. As always, the service was attentive and the food tasty, well presented. We both had the Sunworks chicken with roasted root vegetables. There are several protein options ias well as vegetarian and vegan choices. Dietary restrictions are easily accommodated. Noise levels are low, making conversation easy.

We had the beef tenderloin and the short-rib and both were were very good. The tenderloin was cooked to perfection and the short rib was fall of the bone tender and very flavorful. Our waiter Dew was attentive without being intrusive. The ambiance was pleasant, but some soft dinner music would have been a welcome addition. The only disappointment of our meal was the crispy cauliflower. It was very dry and tasted like bottled hot sauce; not at all what we were expecting.

Enjoyed a lovely anniversary dinner. It was our first time visiting. We started with cocktails, smoked manhattan and a raspberry 75, delicious. For entrees we had the tenderloin and the beef rib, both were wonderful, if I had to pick one it would be the tenderloin! Finished with a creme de pot and a crunchy chocolate cake, the cake was to die for! Service was wonderful, our server was very sweet and brought us a "happy anniversary" plate with brownies. The room is grand although the atmosphere was more casual than I excepted. All in all a very enjoyable experience.

We very much enjoyed our Thanksgiving dinner in the Harvest Room - and no washing up!

One small quibble - the music was a little harsh and loud - some relaxing, soothing jazz or other instrumental music would have been more in keeping with the dinner and ambiance.

Will be back next year - thank you!

We most often go to the Harvest Room for brunch on the weekend. It never disappoints. The eggs benny are the best in Edmonton: perfectly poached eggs, english muffins that are still soft, excellent hollandaise with just the right amount of lemon juice. And on warm days, you can dine on the outdoor patio with a great river view.
