Within the Fairmont Hotel, The Harvest Room serves up award-winning regional cuisine with a majestic view of the North Saskatchewan River Valley. While breakfast, lunch and dinner are all served here, one of the best reasons to visit is for dinner.
Start off with Nova Scotia Lobster Chowder, brimming with lobster claw meat, mussels, fingerling potatoes and boar bacon. Or try the Dungeness Crab and Avocado appetizer for a light, refreshing yet decadent treat. For your entrée, you’ll delight in Alberta Beef Tenderloin and Oxtail, Herb Crusted Lamb Rack, and Slow Roasted Duck Breast, to name a few. Not a fan of meat or fish? Vegetarians will find the Spinach and Artichoke Phyllo or the Cajun Summer Vegetables to be prime choices.
The menu also makes wine selection suggestions for each dish, ensuring that you can pair each plate with the right glass to enhance your meal. Desserts enthusiastic endings to your meal here with choices like Baked Alaska, Pistachio and Olive Oil Cake, and an ever-changing array of crème brulee flavors by the chef.
A wonderful way to indulge happily here is to go for the three-course meal. You can choose an appetizer, entrée and dessert. There are also options to include wine pairings with your three-course meal or even add extra appetizers or desserts for a nominal fee.
The service here is as you’d hope a place like this to be…extremely attentive and knowledgeable. What’s more, if you have food allergies or preferences, they go above and beyond to accommodate your needs. The Harvest Room is a beautiful way to enjoy a meal with a glorious view. And while it’s not cheap, the prices are quite fair for the attention to detail, fresh food and amazing service you’ll enjoy here.
