We went to the Harvest room, we had a groupon. The hostess was very friendly. We had the breakfast buffet, the food selection was poor but tasteful. The place is looking old, it needs an upgrade. I really disliked the fact that the server kept saying we have a groupon, she really said it at least 4 times and very loud, I felt like having a groupon was such a shame! Similar incident happened to us at the fairmont in lake Louise, we had a friends n family rate and the guy at the front desk kept on saying so loud about the discount it felt in both occasions as if we needed to be ashamed that we had a discount.

Impeccable service and great food, as always. Whenever my colleagues and I need to entertain out-of-town guests, the Harvest Room is our go-to spot. All members of the staff are well trained and professional. The noise level such that you can have actually have a conversation without the need to scream (unlike in many other Edmonton restaurants). The Harvest Room serves mostly classic dishes, done exceptionally well using high quality ingredients. It's not cheap, and don't expect any culinary adventures -- there won't be truffle foam on your food or items on the menu that you can't pronounce. The food is inventive enough to not be boring even to frequent diners, but the emphasis is clearly on execution and service. I love coming here for all these reasons.

I took my 14 year old son for his first high end culinary experience. He loved it! From the ambience to the food to the service. Which I agreed with as well. Was disappointed with the cauliflower dish, other than that, it was very good.

Downtown Dining week meal 2018. The server was great, the food was okay, not bad but not anything exceptional. With so many options out there, a restaurant like the Harvest Room needs to impress not just suffice. I had been there on another occasion about a year ago and felt that the food had been better.

Although I enjoyed my overall experience at this restaurant, the salmon on my Eggs Benedict was extremely salty and overpowering. I think I would have enjoyed the brunch buffet better.

Decent food for the price, but not great value. Service was mediocre, especially considering the price overall. We’d spent $800 for 4 of us. Overall, it was a nice evening (good ambience). If it had cost $300, I’d be much more complementary, but at $800, it’s more along the “meh” category.

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.

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

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.
