Amazing place to eat. Food is consistently good. They don’t overdo their menu items so that each item is delicious, well made and has great ingredients. You can taste the quality.

Only two standard egg items on the already small brunch menu, 3/4 of the menu was devoted to alcoholic drinks, and the only juice available was orange and it wasn’t even freshly squeezed. And when we called to say we’d be 10 mins late, and then arrived 10 mins after our reservation time of 11 am, they were only focused on pointing out that we were late, and making sure we knew that the next reservation was at 12:30 so we’d have to be done by then. No cheery hello, no “no worries,” nothing like that. It felt very impersonal corporate somehow and was so unwelcoming! My last time there over a year ago was much nicer.

This restaurant is a great option for weekend brunch. It is one of the few restaurants in the City that takes brunch reservations, so no waiting in line! The food is great - I recommend the barnyard burger!

Meh! Underwhelming. The Ontario wine was the best thing about dinner. To begin, the B in the BLT salad were indistinguishable chunks of dryness and the salad was limp before completion. The hassleback potato that came with the steak special was burnt on the outside, undercooked inside, The trout special was nicely presented, flavours were good but the roasted veg that accompanied it was not cooked. Finally the beet risotto was poorly done. Way too much beet purée for the amount of rice. Food needs to be checked better before leaving the kitchen. This could all have been avoided with better guidance from the chef on duty. If the food is not up to par, don’t send it out!!

First visit did not disappoint. It’s a little eclectic, with a limited menu, but that’s part of the charm. Dishes are well prepared, service was quite attentive. Menu is constantly changing per host, so enjoy and go with the flow.

Loved the food!! Service was great -although food took slightly longer than my hungry child liked :)
The space was a little crowded but otherwise, child friendly in that sense that they were on the ball with getting us a high chair and making sure we had small plates, etc. - but keep in mind, not the most stroller friendly.
Otherwise, awesome place, highly recommend it and will definitely be back!!! :)

We went to the Farmhouse Tavern to celebrate a birthday. This was our first visit and we loved the cozy atmosphere. You felt as if you were at a friend's country cabin. The service was excellent and we liked the fact that the food is locally sourced. The fact that they offer vegetarian selections makes it extra special. The only thing we would like to see is larger portions! We will happily return!

I've been to the Farmhouse Tavern several times and love going there with carnivore friends since they do an amazing job preparing meat dishes. The food was terrific, the room was nice and cozy, and the service super friendly, attentive and accommodating as usual. My only complaint was the wait staff kept trying to take dishes away before we were finished eating – we had to keep reiterating that we weren't finished. I could understand the rush if there was a wait for tables, but that wasn't the case. I do hope they relax a bit on the plate clearing obsession, it's a great spot to linger, share dishes and enjoy a few cocktails in the evening.

It was a delightful evening! Delicious, creative cuisine, beautifully served. We had the Ploughman platter first and really enjoyed the duck, cheeses and pickled vegetables and fruits. Warning: it is a lot to eat! (Especially given what was to come.) The food that followed was excellent in its simple goodness. The ribeye steak was one of the most succulent, wonderfully flavourful (yet essentially unadorned) pieces of meat I have tasted in a long time. The ratatouille was delicately-flavoured, the grilled broccoli properly cooked. The sommelier chose some excellent Ontario wines to complement our food choices. The wait staff was cheeky, helpful, fun and welcoming. Thanks for the great hospitality...we will be back!

I went for brunch. My meal was a poached egg on a fish cake with holandaise (fish benedict) and a side salad. It was well priced for a locally sourced meal but it was very underwhelming. The fish cake was soggy and under-seasoned and the holandaise was alright but there was very little of it. All in all, I'd expected much better from this place that I'd been meaning to check out for a while. Even if brunch isn't their strong suit, I expect to enjoy my meal when I go out to eat, and while it wasn't disgusting, it just wasn't very good -- amateurish.

Buck a shuck on Thursday. They had beautiful Pickle Point oysters that were shucked perfectly. Good craft beer. A bit precious. You kind of feel like you’ve inconvenienced the servers if you don’t have a beard and tattoos or your wife isn’t wearing oversized glasses and flannel. That’s a shame because the entrees were good as well. It isn’t a dive bar, so the service should match the bill.

Our server was very helpful recommending how much food we should order for splitting. Drink list offered multiple cider varieties which I appreciated . Food was delicious - no matter what you order get a side of their bread and butter for sure.

I was early and here was a lack of welcome from the waitresses, instead 'oh you are early'...she looked at me as if i was alien.
I got the same blank look when I asked if I could sit on the patio and have a drink. No one attempted to serve me and I had to go into the restaurant and ask if I could have a drink. The waiter was an improvement once my friends joined and the meal was good except we were given our bill without asking for it or being asked if we wanted another drink. We did want to sit and have another drink but it was so abrupt the we just paid and left.

Decent place as we had been there before 2x in the winter but this time not so much fun. May give it pass this summer.
