American Harvest Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
This was my second time going to American Harvest. Both times have been a great experience! This time we took my mother for her 93 Birthday lunch and it was perfect! The food was excellent, as usual. Mom and I had the sole and it was delicious. The dessert selection was awesome and so abundant that it was hard to make a choice! They made the visit really special by writing Happy Birthday in chocolate around the edge of mom’s dessert plate and putting a candle in the piece of Bavarian Chocolate cake she chose. Everyone wished her a happy birthday and was super kind. Our server was good. All of the servers (and cooks) are students, so they are all learning. He wasn’t quite as polished as the server we had the first time we went there, but he may have been earlier in his learning process. We really enjoy this restaurant and will come again.
Had a nice lunch. You need to book days or week’s in advance. I had the salmon and my wife had the veal. Excellent. Save room for some decadent desserts. I had a very tasty fruit tart that was amazing. We are going to come back for the dinner buffet. I liked our waiter, Brandon, who is a student at Schoolcraft.
Overall, I would recommend. The food was great and had a nice presentation. The wait staff and hostess was friendly. They only have 3 seatings and it takes anywhere from 15 to 30 minutes to get seated, so if you're in a hurry, this would present a problem. Also, the restaurant closes at 2 pm, so don't plan on lingering.
The menu on this day was limited. The desserts looked better than they tasted. I ended up having to use my own tea bag when the server brought the hot water and forgot the tea. I suggested that they bring the tea selection first so the water does not have a chance to get cold. I will try again because I like the idea of supporting college students and have enjoyed better meals.
Food was great and presentation was excellent. Didn't try deserts but they looked out of this world. I had lamb chops and they were perfect. Large lunch portions. Food selection was more appropriate for dinner vs lunch. Glad I didn't have to go back to work and sleep.lol
My son and I enjoyed American Harvest as much as our first luncheon there . I recommend very highly as every aspect was perfect. The many desserts were lined lined up on a high counter, each one beautiful and artistic resulting in a difficult decision. I am returning later in the month with woman I retired with so I can honestly say that our age group down to my son in his twenties is pleased with the restaurant. There are never any disappointments.
The tips go to the scholarship fund and I was happy to contribute toward giving students the opportunity to be part of this outstanding culinary program.
Unfortunately, it was a "rushed" experience towards the end. The student wait staff (and then their instructor) informed us that we needed to quickly choose our dessert and finish our meal because the students classtime would soon be ending; they needed to clean up and leave. We chose the 12:30 pm seating time, unaware of this time restriction. This should be mentioned on your website (i.e. If you desire/require more time for dining, please choose the earliest reservation time. The dining room closes at 2:00 pm.)
Awesome and beautifully presented food with numerous selections on the buffet. The dessert buffet was even more awe-inspiring with many exquisite looking -- and tasting -- dessert options.
The student chefs at American Harvest are obviously learning their trade well; we are looking forward to a return visit soon!
The meals and desserts were delicious. The entree menu is very limited because it is based upon the techniques the culinary students are learning. None of the four choices were vegetarian, but they always offer a house salad and a Greek salad in entree portions. The desserts available are works of art.
The food here has always been outstanding and our recent visit was no different. From the appetizers, to the main courses, to the desserts, the only problem is really having so many excellent options from which to choose. The service was very good and friendly. And the atmosphere, while not glamorous, was inviting. Well done!
Food was fantastic, great variety to choose from. Desert bar OUT OF SIGHT!!!! Service was A1, table cleared promptly and very nicely presented. Service staff efficient.
This young staff should be VERY proud of themselves, excellent preparation ,presentation and did I mention the deserts, WOW .
First time, here and looking forward to a return visit
The salads and desserts are the highlights. Avocados, mangos, grilled pineapple with cucumbers, all with light and fresh dressings, crab on Polenta, the desserts are great - on of the best hazelnut dark chocolate desserts ever, the server was very Knowledgeable and walked us through all of them, entrees included mahi mahi cooked to order, it was south american night so ribs, sausage, a lot of pork, shrimp - all delicious.
I had the Seabass for my entrée. I have read other reviews about this restaurant and after thinking about it closely I considered the Seabass rather bland. It needed more seasoning.
The appetizer was really good though. I had the butternut squash soup.
Then dessert was fabulous. I would totally recommend the bananas Foster.
Another request I would have this restaurant would be to offer loose tea as an option.
Not too many customers, had the best and most attentive server. Love the lamb chop yet so much other delicious dishes tempting, forgot to go back for second. Seafood Paella and lobster bisque with generous amount of seafood. The fig tart a seasonal dessert was light and tasty.
