Went for high tea with my daughter we got all dolled up with fascinators and all was great service fun atmosphere highly recommend for and afternoon of fun
My husband and I had a wonderful experience this weekend at the Harvest Room! Our waiter Ivan was excellent! The service was professional and the food was delicious. I would highly recommend this restaurant!
The staff were very accommodating in moving our group to a better table and our waitress was fantastic. The gal who took the restaurant group on the hotel tour was fantastic. The vintage pictures in each room was very interesting, although it would have been nice if there was information on who was in the picture, etc.
It was the first time I have been to this restaurant and I am thankful I chose this to celebrate my Aunt & uncle's 51st wedding anniversary who were also visiting Edmonton from the Cayman Island and who had said that this experience was the highlight of their entire trip! Everything was just perfect and was over and beyond what we imagined! The service, our meals and the atmosphere were all outstanding.
Food was amazing service was great. Parking to get there is not the best.
Best surprise for my moms 65th birthday, it was amazing, great service, food was amazing. We are planning to do it again
My wife and I have dinner at the harvest room every year for our anniversary. This was our 12th anniversary. We were a little concerned the last few years that the quality and experience was slipping a bit but this year proved once again that the Harvest room dining experience is still one of Edmonton's best. We chose the classic three course meal c/w wine pairing. All three courses we fantastic. We love the local flavor which is as the result of local ingredients and a fantastic kitchen staff. Our waiter Jacob was very respectful and professional. He made sure our dining experience was second to none. Overall a great night. We will definitely be back for more.
Great unique tastes & flavours 💕
Thank you -it made my aunts birthday very special
The Royal High Tea was excellent! Food and service were very good. The accommodated my egg allergy without question and we're great at making room to accommodate two babies with strollers and high chairs. Memorable experience for my sister's bridal shower.
very pleased. a lovely atmosphere. good food, great service. didn't realize what time the breakfast buffet ended until our waitress told us it was 'last call'; unfortunately for us we had an extensive visit prior to visiting the buffet, so we had to quickly load up before the buffet closed.
Everyone at the table enjoyed the 'Tasting Menu', which allowed us to each choose an appetizer, entree and dessert for a great price. The food was amazing and did not disappoint - exactly what you would expect from the Fairmont. I would highly recommend the beef tenderloin, which was cooked to perfection! The timing between all of the dishes was just enough to let you enjoy your food and settle, without feeling like you were being rushed out of the restaurant. Definitely worth checking out!
We attended the long table dinner, and it was phenomenal!! The food and wine were equally delicious, great event!
The service was very very slow and we often had to remind the waiter to bring items he said he was going to bring. It seemed as if they were understaffed. My husband had the lamb which was very good. I had the summer pea risotto and it was just okay a bit bland.
Excellent service and the food was delightful. Came in, gave my name and we were set. The servings are small but perfect for a mid-afternoon late lunch.
Most wonderful special occasion place to go, from service to food and ambient, everything was outstanding!
delicious food + amazing service as always. 💯
Made dinner reservations for our 30th anniversary. Even though we were half an hour early we were warmly greeted and seated immediately. Dew, our server, was attentive throughout the evening, delivering our courses in a timely manner. He was patient and helpful as we finally decided on the seafood beast board. We started with a lightly smoky lobster bisque.The seafood board was a visual work of art placed in the middle of the table for sharing. It consisted of mashed potatoes, a variety of sauces and vegetables, salmon, prawns and scallops.it was very filling. We also saw 2 other boards come out of the kitchen while we there. These boards can be customized according to your protein preferences. Our anniversary was recognized by the restaurant with flutes of champagne and a shareable dessert - though we also did order additional desserts. Thank goodness I'm married to a man with a sweet tooth! Thanks to Dew and the friendly staff we had a very delicious dinner and felt special.
Our waiter Dew was exceptional! Made excellent recommendations
Food was only so so. Duck was tough, steak overcooked-had to be returned.
Very overpriced. Lovely venue though.
We went to Royal High Tea to celebrate two birthdays. We had a marvellous time, great service , food and atmosphere. All together a wonderful time.
This is the place to dress up and enjoy a fabulous evening. The food is outstanding and the service attentive. We recommend the rich lobster bisque, delicious seafood risotto and the tenderloin (which I could cut with my fork. )
THe booking process was a bit goofy between the Fairmonts listing and through open table is it was a special event and the 2 systems didn't seem to reflect that.
Aside from that, my wife and I had an enjoyable evening with some great food.
Beautiful dinner out with my husband. The set menu was thoughtful and well portioned as part of the classic series: a culinary journey, Hawaii.
The light and refreshing tuna and watermelon was delightful. While the pork did not shine, our server and the manager were very quick to replace the pork with a stunning, beautifully seasoned beef tenderloin that was cooked to perfection.
And I cannot forget the coconut and Passion fruit dessert! A beautiful way to spend an evening together
We have dined at the Harvest Room many many times, but a little disappointed this time. We waited 20 minutes before anyone came to our table after being seated. We had to ask for service. Apparently some miscommunication. I had the corn beef brisket sandwich and I must say it was not the greatest. This is the first time I have been disappointed in the service and the food. Will go back again soon.
Everything was great except maintenance people were drilling near us during. We could. It hear our conversation. They did slop when asked. The portions of the emspecisl were smaller Than we expected and smaller than we have had other restaurants.
A lovely elegant spot for a special occasion, like our anniversary. The service was outstanding - friendly, knowledgeable, and very attentive. We ordered the "Beast" to share, and enjoyed a lively red wine with it. We'll definitely recommend it to others.
Lunch with a colleague, the restaurant had selected an outdoor table as requested. Lovely setting with great view of the river valley. Rinha provided charming service, efficient and timely. Carlos, the Mâitre d', came by a couple of times to see that everything was fine. Great lunch, excellent menu and drinks options and actually terrific value. It is amazing how many people don't realize that fine dining restaurants have great food at very affordable prices. Our lunch was just a perfect break in the middle of a busy day. As I expect of this venue: outstanding setting, excellent food and impeccable service - the staff on duty were fabulous. Thank you again.
We went to Royal High Tea to celebrate a friend's 50th birthday.... it was a very lovely way to celebrate. Delicious food, and we left feeling quite full!
We were treated royally! It was a bit too chilly for the patio (we were inside) but we did note that blankets were offered to those who braved the patio. Food was exceptionally good, and we were surprised with a birthday treat and a complimentary beverage. Highly recommended!
A very nice place to celebrate a special occasion. The portions are not enormous but sized just right so that you don't overkill yourself by eating too much. The food is flavorful and excellent. My wife and I went to celebrate our 2nd wedding anniversary and they brought us a glass of champagne and cheese cake. We went for the 3 courses for one price which is a good deal (for one price you can choose any appetizer, entrée and a dessert). I had the crispy soft shell crab (I recommend this!), the Bison short rib (very tender), and bread and butter pudding while my wife had the scallops, heritage beef tenderloin (very tender!) and Mac Signature chocolate crunch cake. Everything was delicious. The wine selection was very good. We ordered a bottle of Malbec. To begin we had Moscow mules (extremely chilled in a copper cup) the way mules should be served. Excellent service was provided by our waiter Dew Johnny who was very cordial, attentive and provided good suggestions and kept our wine glasses filled. I had an allergy and he made sure that my food didn't contain anything which I was allergtic to. The Restaurant is located in the Hotel MacDonald and everything was first class.
High tea at the Hotel MacDonald was a pleasant surprise. I won’t say I’m a connoisseur of high teas, but I’ve been to my share around the world, and this was one of the best. The selection of teas was good, if a little quirky (it included “Ontario icewine”). But the food was where the Harvest Room shone, from buttery scones with homemade preserves to miniature roast-beef and pesto-chicken sandwiches to a tasty cinnamon cannoli. The room was lovely, and the view was superb—surely one of the very best in Edmonton. At $29 CAD a head, a great value.
A bit disappointed with the scones... we come a time or two every year, but the scone sizes seem to keep diminishing. Otherwise, the tea selection has improved, & the other tea items have improved in taste. However the proportion of sweets far outweighs the savouries, leaving the flavours a bit unbalanced.
My family enjoyed the food and the friendly attentive staff,particularly Douglas.
Celebrating a graduation. Great food service friendly and prompt lovely atmosphere
Amazing care from the moment we were seated. Carlos and Nathalii took the very best care of us. They truly make you feel like a princess, that you are the very most important person to walk through the door.
A very big Thank you !!!
Very good food .... a little over price $ service was excellent , should have more range price wine the cheapest was 65 $ maybe a house wine that would be more affordable... but overall good experience !!
Patio cushions and table place mats need cleaning or replacing.
We celebrated my birthday and our anniversary with afternoon high tea on Tuesday. It was very tasty. Thank you for the champagne, that was unexpected and delightful. That just topped the day for us.
The view from the patio is very nice. The food was very good. Never understand why sweet potato fries are $3.00 more.
Great service, good food. Will go back again.
