Harvest

Harvest at the Chicago Marriott Downtown Magnificent Mile celebrates the integrity and simplicity of classic Midwestern fare, focusing on locally-sourced farm-fresh seasonal ingredients and the practice of time-honored cooking traditions by a kitchen staff that shares a passionate pursuit of excellence. Harvest’s menus draw on a rich culinary heritage that shines through chef-crafted selections prepared with in-season, local ingredients. And by using techniques that have long been discarded in favor of convenience, everything from soups to fresh juice cocktails to hand-rolled croissants is made from scratch, ensuring that Harvest’s commitment to fresh, honest cuisine is absolute. Harvest’s contemporary yet classic approach to Midwestern American food is complemented by surroundings that draw from a modern urban feel with a hint of nature, giving every diner a reason to linger, enjoy the company they’re with, and celebrate nature’s culinary bounty.

"Had breakfast at Harvest on New Year's morning following a stay in the Marriott hotel. It is definitely still hotel fare- buffet style is recommended and really is the best bet (but still costly at $25 per person). Server was quick with drinks and the open kitchen was nice- I could chat with the chef as he prepared my hot food and actually see it being cooked. You could also customize your food- add "toppings" to pancakes and waffles if you wanted, etc. Loved that the server also brought us to go cups for our coffee as we were finishing up. Again, it's hotel breakfast- but it is among the nicer versions of it that I have had."

"The noise level was good for a party of two. They had interesting choices for meal selections but I found some to be rather more bland than they needed to be. The staff was attentive and friendly."

"Had dinner here while staying at the hotel. Due to the Parade of Lights we made reservations to be sure to be able to eat dinner. Worked great arrived and sat right down at a nice quiet table. Asked about special we saw on line and waiter checked to verify it was being served. Thankfully it was on the choices for dinner. We stuck with that and had a wonderful quiet nice dinner Service was outstanding and delicious. Only suggestion would be to offer vegetables if someone is not able to eat potato when doing a special. Worked out well ordered a salad and hubby had my potatoes."

"In my open table reservation, I made a request for a nice table by the window if possible, and noted that we were celebrating with a person who was receiving a special industry award. The hostess seated us at the perfect table, and at the end of the meal brought a lovely tiny dessert sampler with "Congratulations" written in chocolate for the table to share - perfect! The waitress went above and beyond, even running down to the "pub" for a beer that one guest requested as he had seen it there. The soup was delicious, but one entrée wasn't completely warmed through. I am confident they would have fixed it, but did not address it as the point was to celebrate the guest of honor. Service was fast and exceptionally friendly!"

"A bit pricey but it was in the Marriott and the food is all locally sourced. We got the fish and chips as well as the seared salmon and some clam chowders. At one point I dropped some ketchup on my shirt and our server immediately offered soda water to get it out."

"Tried Harvest on a TravelZoo deal. Went on a Saturday night and tried the Smoked Prime Rib special. It was so delicious, and this twist from the typical is what made this so tasty. The smoke was only penetrated about 1/4 inch in, so you get a nicely flavored, tender piece of prime.
Nice wine selection.

"We selected Harvest because of its commitment to local food sources, the bees on the roof and the rooftop garden. What we found matched our expectations, except for the poor bread that was served. The bread must have been microwaved because it was dried out. Everything else was excellent. We had the short ribs and whitefish, and for dessert we shared the cheesecake samples. Our service was excellent, and the meal reasonably priced considering we are dining in a hotel off of Michigan Avenue. It's not cheap, but it is what you'd expect to pay."

"I loved the Thanksgiving buffet. The food was suppurb and so was the staff. My husband thought the ham was the best he ever had. My grandkids loved the pumpkin pie and dessert table. We had a wonderful experience."
