We have been coming here for years. However, this last experience was not nearly as good as in the past. Since changing the seating times this past semester we found the food was mostly out at multiple stations and too many people bunched up at once made wait times longer for service. We spent a good amount of time during the meal without food trying to eye the stations for them to be refilled. Sad that all draft beer choices were not on printed menu. Dessert was excellent as always though.

Thanks for a lovely evening

There were four of us celebrating my birthday. The dinner and dessert was great as always. The food was in two stations which kept the wait short. The students did a wonderful job serving. It's pretty interesting to talk with them about their plans for the future. The instructors here have these students right on point. This restaurant is the best one around for the money. I have eaten there many times before and have never been disappointed.

Love the student run and prepared lunches/ dinners at Schoolcraft College. A great adventure to experience restaurant cuisine from the beginning of the process. With the numerous chefs who have completed the course and now operating their own restaurants and are renowned chefs, it’s a treat for the tummy.

My second time there, took a friend this time. She will be bringing friends on her next visit. This is a gem. The kids are wonderful. They're being taught classic kitchen skills and procedures. They did table-side bananas flambe - executed beautifully - but didn't use the French Service technique of large spoon and fork in same hand - quibble. Desserts are wonderful: a Dacquoise-type cake was sublime, the Crème Brulee was rich and eggy. The smoked bacon and pork pie was country and elegant! First time in years I'm able to eat gourmet food at a reasonable price. And Sandy, the hostess, is great!

Food was excellent. Incredible selection of desserts that all looked phenomenal. Hard to choose which one to try. Service was a bit slow, so it took over 1 hour for lunch.

In recent years, it seemed as though the quality of the ingredients was lower. This time, however, everything was back up to the high quality that I experienced years ago. We especially enjoyed the sushi, salmon, beef short ribs, and grilled eggplant. The pastries are always beautiful and taste amazing!

Overall food selection was very good. Asian flavors was the theme and was adequately represented. Preparation was excellent. Student servers are not up to speed and quality- but it is understandable, considering that they are in training. Good value for the food!

The waiter assigned to our table did a lackluster job. He seemed to be catering to one table of patrons in particular so we did not receive the service that we normally receive at this restaurant.

We go to American Harvest several times a year. The food is always excellent, and the waitstaff friendly. This time, though, the place was more crowded than usual, resulting in a longer than normal wait for the food, and closer packing of the tables than usual. In spite of that, I would recommend AH as one of the best, if not the best, restaurant I've been to.

The cauliflower soup was superb, I give it 5 stars. Would love to have the recipe.
We had the Skate for the main dish. We love Skate on the bone and as a result, the way it was prepared was disappointing. The flavor was fine but it was difficult to find the fish. Skate on the bone is an aesthetic treat.
Our desserts were the most disappointing; I had the apricot tart which was 3 of 5 stars , reasonably enjoyable.
The others had a fruit topped cake like thing which looked fabulous but whose flavors and textures were disappointing. I would say 5 for appearance but 2 for flavor.

This is a restaurant run by the students of Schoolcraft's culinary school and the food is really excellent and very flavorful in its design, beautifully presented, suitable for a high end establishment. The wait staff is friendly and polite though perhaps a bit slow but they are learning. The price is really low for the quality and of course you are supporting students at the same time. My partner really enjoyed the table prepared Bananas Foster and she is a connoisseur of that dish.

Thank you for a most enjoyable experience. The food was delicious and intriguing to try new flavors. The desserts were beautiful to look at as well as enjoyable to eat.

Really nice.
People need to realize this is a teaching environment.
The couple next to us just bitched about everything. Obviously they don’t get out much. As an example she asked about how long it would take to get coffee,never ordered it,then asked the waitress why she didn’t bring it.

We wait about 10 min to get a spoon for the soup. Portions were too small. Salad was very limited about a cup

The food is as good if not better than any Michelin starred restaurant and at a much lower cost. I can't wait to return.
