The steak and roasted vegetables were delicious. The noise level was a little higher than I would prefer
Omg what a secret garden! The locally (some, rooftop!) sourced produce tastes like no other! Very expertly crafted recipes! It was very quiet on a Friday night and should have been packed! Not a typical hotel restaurant- if I was local I would go often!
The way the OpenTable app presented this restaurant, I had no idea it was simply the main restaurant at the Marriott on Michigan Avenue. They screwed up two of our orders and when I flagged down our waitress to notify her of the mistakes her response was "OK" and then she disappeared for 20 minutes. We just ate it anyway since the staff was nowhere to be found to swap out our meals or offer other solutions. She finally came back and then offered to remake the two mistakes but we had already completed our breakfast. Lousy service, overpriced, generic hotel food and no apology offered. This was pretty awful all around!
The food was great! I would especially recommend the brussels sprouts, house made chips, and the scallops with chorizo.
Decent hotel food. Convenient but looks better then it tastes.
Our Easter breakfast at the Harvest Room was very pleasant. Service was wonderful! Food was good and the price was what you would expect from a downtown restaurant.
This restaurant had a very limited menu. Service was OK. The Brussels Sprouts were excellent, everything else we tried was meh.
Good food with several good choices and service was exceptional.
Awful / holiday overnight in city with family- table for 10 - sat us in a back very ugly room with another table of 11 that was loud and obnoxious with kids playing video games at table .
No Christmas decor , food overpriced and not good
Very very disappointing for our holiday breakfast
Buffet was good. Kids price was awesome. Most grown ups don’t eat $30 of breakfast food, but some might. The omelet service is excellent. The hollandiase for the Benedict lacked flavor.
When we arrived there was hardly anyone there so we were a bit apprehensive, but we attributed it to being a hotel restaurant. The Farmer's Salad was ho-hum, but the grilled lamb chops were substantial, done perfectly, and delicious. The Whitefish was also very good; the "onion broth" had an unexpected light sweetness, but it was good. The service was a bit off -- waiter was a pleasant guy who usually worked in the bar and didn't know much about the menu, but was more than willing to get answers to our questions.
The website for the restaurant did not advertise that on Thanksgiving there would only be an option of a $40/person buffet. We had come specifically to a place with a more general menu since we would be having our actual thanksgiving the next evening. The food at the buffet for the most part was fine, but not worth the $40/person price tag. The carving station advertised ham and turkey (and the gentleman working I think believed he was serving ham and turkey) but there were just two different types of turkey prepared differently - the “ham” had legs...
This place is terrible. It’s loud and the tables are close together. I would rather get a egg sandwich from Starbucks.
we were the only people there at 7pm on a friday night. weird.
I had the salmon which was really delish others had lamb chops that were equally as good. started out with tempura snap peas, excellent!
On vacation. In our hotel. Convenient and excellent
Attendance was very scarce when we visited, though it was early. Farm-to-table food was very good, though variety of choices was small. Again, the food was very good .... I felt sorry for the chef, as he is doing a great job at a location that probably doesn’t appreciate it. It is the main food destination for the Michigan Avenue Marriott. And Marriott’s do not have a reputation as a place for good food. Please give it a try —- no, I am not in any way associated with Marriott or the restaurant.
The food was fairly good, but the extremely slow service ruined the experience completely. It was not busy whatsoever, yet it took over 2 hours to have dinner due to the poor service. Our waitress asked for our order, realized she forgot her menu pad and would be right back. After waiting nearly 30 minutes, a completely different waitress came and took our order. Our dinners were good but the pasta was too salty to eat. Making note of the saltiness to the waitress, she didn’t seem too concerned to let the chef know. Even complaining to the manager, she completely blew us off in regards to getting feedback. Definitely do not recommend
We shared hummus appetizer and cheese & meat tray. Very good! Had salmon... Delicious! Others had ribeye and one had lamb chops. All good was wonderful. Restaurant was not real busy. Service was a little slow, but we were not in a hurry.
I have dietary needs and they took extra precautions and followed up with me after talking to the chef! Great food!
Outstanding meal and service with pleasant view of the street below.
It actually was a Sun evening so the restaurant was pretty quiet. However, the staff was very attentive without hovering too much, the food was delicious, and prices very comparable to most upscale restaurants in Chicago. We were a little disappointed that the filet was no available on a Sun night, but the ribeye was delicious and presentation was lovely. We had a few special requests, and the server answered, "Our chef can make that for you." The wine was lovely but I wish they had red wine glasses so I could get more aeration into my red. Other than that, it was a lovely experience and we would definitely visit again!
Enjoyed the rooftop honey butter, Rolodex and grown up macs and cheese!!
The most disappointing place. We went here for Christmas night dinner buffet because it seemed reasonably priced and we were out of town and that was the biggest mistake. The buffet was extremely average and unforgettable with a very small selection of foods. I literally can't think of a single noteworthy item. The place was practically empty and the décor was dated and drab. Don't bother spending even $10 in this place. It's honestly not worth it
Christmas dinner while in Chicago.
it was open
Price was reasonable
Food just so so
Reservations not necessary but open table made it seem like this place was in high demand
Overall if you need a place to eat on Christmas Day in Downtown Chicago and dont want to spend a fortune consider this place
Particularly memorable we’re locally sourced Great Lakes white fish and over the top garlic French fries. We had fantastic service and an enjoyable meal.
This is the restaurant in the Chicago downtown Marriott. It is typical of business hotel restaurants, with basic uninspired food, but is convenient if you are at the hotel and want to sign for a meal on your account and not bother putting on a coat if it is cold outside, or getting hot and sticky if it is hot, i.e., you just need some expensive calories to get the eating over with and go to bed.
It was almost empty on a weekend night, likely because not too far away are other, better choices and because despite the abundance of personnel, service was inattentive and flat.
, e.g., why did I have a fifteen minute wait at reception for an empty restaurant when I had a reservation, and why did they try and seat me next to a family with kids when the rest of the place was empty.
Chairs are comfortable, decor calming.
The food was good, but service not so much. The restaurant was empty and the food took about a half hour to get. For some reason the Caesar salad was brought with the meal even though it obviously was supposed to come first. Then we asked for different dressing for the kids salad and we never got it. Rib-eye was delicious, kids pizza not so much.
While the food was delicious, the service was inattentive and scarce. For a prime location, this place should have been packed on a Saturday night. However, mediocre service is a death knell to any customer service establishment.
We didn't realize we were headed to a Marriott, but after that initial disappointment we decided to have breakfast anyway and it exceeded our expectations for a Marriott. And was a fine breakfast.
It was okay. Better for a meeting where food and eating is not the main point of being at the restaurant. booked on opentable, but would not have gone if known it was in a hotel. not a place to hang out as the seating and tables look like they belong in a residence inn breakfast buffet. food was good but left and immediately had meal #2 at Portillos because portions were laughably small.
Waiter sucked. Didn't tell us about specials, took drink orders 3 different times instead whole table at once. Didn't know the difference between a dark beer and a light beer and argued with business client she was wrong. Brought food out at different times. We paid bill and the host came back and asked if we wanted desert or our check. Worst service I've ever had in Chicago area
Thanksgiving buffet (our third year in a row here) was again excellent.
My food came out cold. There weren't very many people in there and the service was Slow. The menu is not very large and the food is fair at best.
Arrived at 7pm to find the place empty. The menu was not the same one listed online. I ordered fish and chips, which was more batter than fish and chips were cold. My dinner date wanted vegetables but there were none on the menu. She ordered trout which had a very small serving of celery slaw.
We ate and left hungry. This wasn't worth the expense.
Kitchen was too busy. Server told us to have breakfast buffet instead. That is ridiculous. Food was mediocre at best. Staff in restaurant was very nice, but the fact the kitchen was too busy severely impacts my view of the restaurant.
excellent for breakfast with quality food and good service
This was my second time to dine at Harvest. I thought it was just just average, and for my dollar,s, I'd have expected more. The menu is very limited, and the food was just average. I love their idea of a snack wagon but the choices on it were odd too. Trout dip didn't sound appetizing to me. I like the former restaurant in this space much better, Sensi.
