Harvest Room - Fairmont Hotel Macdonald Ratings and Reviews
We had a lovely time. The food was excellent as was the service, and we appreciated the extra special things they did to make our Anniversary wonderful. We also appreciate how they went out of their way to ensure that there were gluten free options available too. Definitely enjoyed this as a venue to celebrate special occasions. We'd definitely recommend the Harvest Room.
Two of us did not feel well immediately after eating the duck entree. I reported this to management and am pleased as to how they handled it. I think the experience would be hugely enhanced by live piano music in the restaurant and adjacent bar. I would expect this from an establishment such as this.
We came in for a lunch after the wedding ceremony. Only 4 guests the bride, groom and two witnesses. We ordered off the 45 min express lunch and we almost missed the reception because the service was so slow. Our reservation was at 1pm on a Thursday clearly after the lunch rush as no one was on the patio or in the restaurant. It took about 15 min before our server even acknowledged us, then about 30 min later we got our drinks and ordered our lunch. 1 hour later our lunch arrives we quickly eat and wait another we had to 20 min for our dessert. we would of drank more wine and ordered champagne but our server was not their. needless to say I won't be heading back anytime soon. We left the restaurant at 4pm!! reception started at 4:30pm. We barely made it.
We have been enjoying dinners at the Fairmont Harvest Room for many years. Our meal and the service tonight could not have been more enjoyable. It is so nice to have such a fine meal served in such a gracious manner in a room with such a perfect atmosphere.
Overall it was good. I know the hotel prides itself on it's old, grand appearance - but on the inside, I was actually a bit disappointed of how it looked. I expected grander, older, more prestige. I found it just kind of lacked in the 'grand' department. The food however, was very very good.
The quality of food wasn't as great as we had hoped. There was no "deal" with the 3 course meal so we ordered an appetizer and entree each. I found the appetizer salad to be lacking in flavor and the portion was small for a $17 plate. My husband's soup was very good, but once again the portion very small. The entrees were ok, honestly nothing special or memorable. My chicken had a different flavor that I didn't particularly like, nor hate. My husband ordered the steak and he literally said that my mom cooks a better steak. The price we paid for this meal was just as expensive as another fine dining restaurant but with other places, we would get a bottle of wine. I found this was overpriced for the menu and for the lack of quality of food... you're probably paying more for the name than the food. I would not come here again simply because we weren't that impressed and we wouldn't pay that much (over $160) for "good" food, we look for exceptional.
Celebrated Father's Day here. Our server for the evening, Jacob, was attentive, welcoming, professional and overall very pleasant. He asked If we were celebrating a special occasion and a complimentary beverage was provided at the end of the meal for my Dad. Our entrees were beautifully presented and enjoyable. Appetizers were good but on the pricier side. Overall it was a nice evening out with the family!
Food was delicious. I had an exceptional piece of salmon. All of my guess we're happy with their food. For some strange reason, although the restaurant was virtually empty, the server decided that right behind our table was the right place to sort all of the place settings for the restaurant even though the room was 95% vacant. The clatter and noise was nasty. What was she thinking? The noise interfered with the hearing of some of my senior guests. Nevertheless we had an enjoyable time and we were happy with having chosen the Harvest Room .
We celebrated our 19th anniversary at one of our favourite spots, the Hotel Mac's exquisite Harvest Room. The ambience, as expected, was elegant but relaxed. The food and service were top-notch as always. We were even surprised with a celebratory dessert by our super-attentive server. A wonderful experience!
Overall a great meal. Went here on Easter Sunday for dinner and had the three course dinner with my wife. Had the scallops and chowder for appetizers and the lobster duo and steak for the mains. Appetizers were the highlight. Did not enjoy the costumed easter bunny going around patting peoples' heads, however we understood it was the intention to get people into the Easter mood.
Server seemed a little busy with him not coming back to check on us very often at all. This wasn't much of an issue as the meals came plated as described.
We arrived to a fairly empty restaurant. We ordered from the 45 minute express lunch. We would have been out in close to 45 minutes had the server completed our bill in a timely manner. There were too many tables for the number of staff. After we drank our waters they were not refilled. On the upside the food was delicious and enjoyed by all.
We spent a weekend at the Hotel Mac and had a wonderful dinner at the Harvest Room. It was cozy and romantic. The dinner was delicious and they accomodated my husband's requests to modify his meal a little. Our server was very friendly and knowledgable about the wine list. We really enjoyed our weekend and our dinner was the icing on the cake.
