Diner Reviews
  • "I purchased a Groupon that gave me a credit of $40 for lunch for two. I went to lunch with a close friend to catch up and it was perfect! They had this express lunch within 45 mins and it was just the right amount of food. Soup or salad and, sandwich or pasta and dessert. I would always recommend the Harvest Room for anyone looking for a good lunch or brunch!"

  • "Food was alright - not as good as I was expecting from this famous hotel. Same with the ambience of the dining room - was expecting much more."

  • "Orders presented to the wrong diner, by someone other than the table server. Plate stuck my wife's chair as it was being presented resulting in my appetizer ending up on the floor."

  • "I wanted to impress my sister as it was her birthday.The Harvest Room did its magic. At first I wasn't sure as the room was plain and there were not many people for a Monday lunch. Our Wait-server was friendly and made us comfortable. She answered questions about the food items and was diligent in service. She was available but not intrusive. The food was excellent and my sister was impressed. This was truly a triumphant birthday treat for her."

  • "They were very accommodating. My friend is vegetarian and they made sure she had a replacement to the meat dishes. We were there celebrating her birthday and at the end they also brought out a piece of birthday cake. Great experience"

  • "My husband and I went to the Harvest Room for our first time on Saturday, and we loved it. We sat on the patio, at the risk of mosquitoes, but the view was worth it (and it turned out mosquitoes weren't a problem). The patio was also great for people watching, due to the garden that is open to guests (hotel, pub, restaraunt or wedding guests) for a nice little walk. The service was fast and friendly, and the food was amazing. Everything was really tasty and well prepared, but the 2 dishes that really impressed us were the Lobster Chowder appitizer and the Beef Tenderloin entree. The Tenderloin was so flavorful, and had such an amazingly soft texture. I have never had a steak literally melt in my mouth before! Best steak I've ever had."

  • "The lunch specials here are quite popular ($24 for salad, entree and dessert), and a good value. Just about everyone ordered them, and were happy with both variety and quality. I tried the bison short ribs. They were heavenly (not a word I use often), but certainly pricey for lunch ($30). However, you get what you pay for."

  • "Amazing $59 deal that includes appetizer, entree and dessert. I enjoyed the wine pairing suggestions as well. Food was fantastic. No other restaurant in Edmonton has a better view. I can hardly wait to go back."

  • "We chose the Harvest Room as part of our wedding anniversary celebration and it did not disappoint. The menu is not extensive but the selections we made were very well prepared and very tasty. I think that I expected a little more given the location and truthfully, have had finer dining in other Edmonton restaurants but all in all, it was a lovely meal with excellent service."

  • "I took my niece to The Harvest Room because she wanted to eat in a castle. The staff treated her like a Princess and my niece felt sooo special. What a lovely group of staff! It was an outstanding dining experience out on the terrace with delicious food and great company. it exceeded my expectations all around."

  • "Have gone to the Harvest Room for 15 yrs in a row for our anniversary and this year as always - the food was fantastic. The chefs never disappoint us. I had the duo pork entree and my husband the sirloin which was wonderfully done and quite a large serving. Our disappointment came with the change in the wine menu (hardly any choices) and the service. Service was obtrusivea and rushed. CP Hotel staff were once renown for their "discreet" service but since the change in ownership - well?? Our waiter rushed through it all and at times when we needed service, he was not around. Overall - I would highly recommend the food, but not much more. The level of service and ambience has deteriorated."

  • "The best patio in Edmonton bar none. The food is phenomenal, the service spot on and the view over the river valley is awe inspiring. I can't figure out why this patio isn't packed to overflowing on a hot day. Only four tables set up (which were full) on the day we were there. This truly is an exceptional experience, especially in Edmonton, where "patio" usually means a table where you bake in the sun and strain to hear over the traffic noise."

  • "The food was exceptional! We added things that were not on the menu and it was taken care of without a problem and with a smile. Our server was Ivan and he was excellent. Very accommodating and attentive. It was a great experience!"

  • "We purchased the groupon to go to the Harvest room. It would not have been affordable for us otherwise. It was fantastic. The food and service were wonderful and it was nice and quiet. I had the chicken and it was delicious and full portions so no one went home hungry. Our server also brought me a pretty little piece of cake with candle and chocolate writing as it was my birthday. Very special Night"

  • "The Harvest room still has the same great food, but you notice the little things that have been paired away. There are no tablecloths anymore, just the bare table. The staff ( especially the bar staff,) now wear golf shirts instead of the very professional black and white always worn here. I liked the old Mac, I liked the higher standards."

  • "We were delighted with the both the atmosphere and the service. Sanatana our server was fabulous. We were celebrating a special occasion and walked away from the restaurant feeling very special and we did not even mention to our server it was a special occasion. We had our 5 year old granddaughter with us and Santana treated her like a princess and she loved every minute of it, so much so she wanted to explore the rest of the castle. Her reaction to the restaurant was "This is beautiful". The presentation of the food and the taste were phenomenal. There definitely was a special uniqueness in the flavors of the food, which were delightful to the palate."

  • "Good ambience, great service, small portions, unreasonable prices for food and drinks. My husband ordered the lamb and only received 4 small pieces of meat for $48."

  • "My wife and I went to the Harvest Room for our anniversary. We had heard great things about the Harvest Room and it definitely surpassed our expectations. The food was cooked to perfection, the wine and champagne list was extensive and the service was above and beyond what we have experienced at other restaurants. The weather was amazing so we decided to sit on the patio which is a beautiful oasis with an amazing view of the river valley. I highly recommend this restaurant."

  • "My wife and I try to go to the harvest room a few times per year. I would hazard to say the most flavourful meal money can buy. I find a lot of top shelf restaurants don't push the flavour edge but the chef at the harvest room always does. In fact last Xmas he prepared a meal for a friends child that's anaphylactic to all but 4 items in total. He prepared a great dish both flavourful and well presented. Amazing."

  • "The service we received made the evening extra special. The assistant outlets manager John Markey went out of his way to make us feel special. From the moment we arrived until we left. Our waiter Santana gave us excellent service and also made us feel very special. Thank you to the two of you. "

  • "My wife and I dinned on the terrace over looking the river valley. We love the view and the food was outstanding. Toward the end of our meal the weather began to change when the rain clouds began to roll in, the staff offered us a warm blanket and turned on the heat lamp. An overall perfect evening. Thank you, Mr. and Mrs. Pelland"

  • "For a high class hotel & restaurant like hotel Mac, I have to say, I was shocked to see when the waiter brought my straw holding it in his hand & put it straight in my glass without being warped in a napkin. Do I have to say more??!!"

  • "We had a lovely evening in the Harvest Room. The meal was as good as any we've had. Great menu variety with lots of special "touches". Definitely recommend it for a quiet or romantic night out!! Service was perfect - not too much...but there when we needed or wanted anything! Not intrusive at all! "

  • "The high tea was very enjoyable. I was only disappointed with the china. It would have made the experience that much more special had the china used been more 'english' and traditional. Service was great, and the food was great. The tour of the hotel thereafter was very well-led, but a bit underwhelming. A trip to all the halls on the main floor would have been great, we only saw the Wedgewood room. I don't think it's worth showing something like the George room at all, unless of course, there are some really great stories to go along with it. I would have rather seen the other halls on the main floor, or toured the grounds outside or something. "

  • "I've always wanted to visit the Fairmont and finally did, if only for drinks on the terrace. Even an overcast and eventually misty evening didn't dampen my experience. I only gave 3 stars for food because my choice of red wine wasn't available and one of my dining companions didn't like the appetizer we chose (dips and breads). However, the service was friendly and informative and the atmosphere was beautiful. I'll be back for the complete dining experience!"

  • "Great service, incredible food and wonderful atmosphere. Obviously on the pricier side but you just have to know that going in. The staff put in extra effort without me asking to make my girlfriend's night special as we were celebrating for her. "
