The Fairmont Hotel Macdonald has a reputation for excellent cuisine and warm hospitality in the heart of downtown Edmonton. Our beautifully-appointed restaurant, The Harvest Room, overlooks the fabulous North Saskatchewan River Valley in Edmonton, the largest urban parkway in North America, and upholds Canadian tradition in grand style. The menu brims with the best Alberta beef -- all the bounty for which Alberta's heartland is famous -- and our superb wine list complements any selection. At The Harvest Room, enjoy everything from our quick start breakfast buffet and A La Carte, fine dining to family meals to Afternoon Tea and snacks. After a magnificent dinner, treat yourself in the Confederation Lounge to one of our many single malt scotches or a decadent Mac martini. With a wide range of specialties, our executive chef always prepares outstanding dining experiences.

We visited the Harvest Room for Sunday Brunch to celebrate my birthday. The restaurant is not very large, so a reservation is a must (we had booked a reservation). The service we received was good, our server came around regularly to ensure we did not need anything, clearing away plates and refilling beverages. The full buffet was OK, the food tasted good, it was hot and well replenished, but there was a very small selection considering the price. Eggs could be taken from the buffet or special ordered, there was a potato choice, two meat choices and french toast. The bread station had three choices of bread, 2-3 flavors of muffin and small croissants. There was a couple types of cereal, 3 smoothie blends, some cut up fruit, two types of cheese, and yogurt. We did find enough to eat, however we feel that this buffet has quite a bit less options then buffets offered by other quality restaurants for similar price.

Great service. Excellent “Beast Platter” for two. Had a combo of seafood and bison. Excellent veggies to accompany on board.

Took my wife for Valentines Day expecting a memorable experience, when we were seated there was barely enough room to pull my chair out to sit, when I did sit my legs were hitting the legs of the table. Turns our we were at a portable card table setup to look like normal seating, I guess extra capacity for Valentines Day.
The meal was OK off the set menu, for the significant cost of the meal was very underwhelmed and disappointed.
Server was excellent and very knowledgeable

Though the lunch was a buffet the food was very tasty and the wines were excellent. The service was very attentive but not intrusive. All in all a very nice Valentine's Day experience.

My wife and I have been to the Harvest Room on previous occasions and always found the meals to be excellent (if a bit pricey). On this occasion, we were a disappointed with the overall quality of the food, finding it a bit bland. We will likely choose other restaurants over the Harvest Room for future evenings out.

We were staying at the hotel for our five year anniversary. Adam was an amazing server, so knowledgeable and just overall made our experience so much better. We will be back with our parents this Sunday and will definitely be asking for him! Thank you for making a special night even better Adam! This man deserves recognition.

As always, the Harvest Room was delightful. The food and service were both top notch. I have nothing but the highest level of respect for the Fairmont restaurants because they put so much thought into even the smallest details, such as their high quality, proprietary teas.

We were served by Dew Phillips who took incredible care of us! The tenderloin was amazing. In every meal in the past the food has also been outstanding! Beautiful intimate setting, will keep going back.
