Roasted Beet Salad
The duck pasta was delicious. The usual mushrooms were absent but the amount of duck was generous. The service was great; warm, timely and efficient. The bread with the beef tartare was exccellent. I am not a beef tartare fan so perhaps someone more familiar with it should comment.
'I would definitely go there again, only I would not make a reservation because I would rather have been outside on the patio where they don't hold tables.
Excellent choice for amazing food - quality and local good food.
Quality food, great atmosphere to go along with friendly service. One of TO's best restaurants
It's always a sure bet at The Farmhouse! We love it!
Farmhouse used to be my favourite restaurant in Toronto, however my last couple of visits have been somewhat disappointing. The first visit was shortly after restaurants re-opened, post the latest lockdown, so I didn't put too much weight on it as lots of places were still getting their footing. However my most recent visit (about a month later) wasn't great. It seems Farmhouse is booking all their resos in hour and a half increments instead of staggering reservations throughout the night. I made a reservation for 5:30 (which is when they open) along with many other people and the staff seemed very overwhelmed by every table being sat at the same time (I worked in restaurants for ten years and know what that's like, not easy). One of FT's charms is that the menu is written on chalkboards posted on walls. I've always loved that! However it does mean your staff needs to be knowledgable about what their selling. I was seated at a table where I couldn't see the chalkboards and my server, who was very lovely, had very limited wine knowledge. Many of the wines I wanted either weren't available or hadn't been chilled in preparation for service. About half an hour after being seated I received a glass of wine and it was the wrong wine. I finally got the wine I ordered 45 mins after being seated. Love you Farmhouse but waiting 45 for your first drink is pretty bad. In that time, I also witnessed another table get up and leave because they weren't being helped. It makes me sad cause I really do love this restaurant! I recommend that they stagger their reservations so their staff doesn't get sat all their tables at once and that they focus on more product knowledge to ensure smoother more efficient service. I hope my next visit is better!
Great food and service. Big flavors in the appetizers and mains with cool and refreshing desserts. The patio tables aren’t as spaced out as expected so there wasn’t physical distancing between some diners at neighboring tables. There’s s good roof over the patio so we could eat if it was raining.
The Barn Burger is one of the best burgers I’ve ever tasted. Tartare was a yummy share plate to start with. Fries are delicious!!! 😋

Server was kind, but clearly overburdened. Wait time for food was lengthy (~40 mins)…and this wasn’t communicated to us.
Food itself (overall) was ok, nothing spectacular. The ducks two ways was a bit dry, and the confit not super flavourful. Found it a bit Strange that the duck wasn’t mixed in with the mushrooms. Side salad was good, as were the pancakes.
Caesar (which was highly recommended by friends who have eaten there years ago) came in a half pint, and no longer uses the smoked oyster garnish it previously did. Came with a cheap looking stick of celery, definitely not worth the price.
We really enjoyed the Sunday brunch experience at Farmhouse. The service was great with drinks and food arriving In a timely fashion. I was particularly pleased with our server’s knowledge of the menu which really helped us in making our order. Keep up the excellent start. We’ll be back for something off the grill soon.
had a GREAT eggs benedict, waiter was nice, dog friendly really appreciated
Great food and service!
One of the best burgers in town mmmmmm
Another great meal at Farmhouse. Never disappointed by their forever rotating and seasonal menu.
The food wasn't extraordinary for the price that we paid. Given a 90 minute timeslot, we were seated 15 minutes late and told to leave right away.
I love this restaurant! Not only is it a great farm-to-table, which strives to use everything ("snout to tail"), it's all just so delicious, too. I feel good supporting a business who in turn supports local and sustainable farming, and I get to eat the best damn food doing it.
Patio (barn) was very noisy and difficult to have conversation over the meal. But service was very friendly and efficient. Food was good.
Wonderful neighborhood restaurant. Highly recommended
The food was great, although we were placed at a table that was uncovered and on the street. We were not part of the ambience of the restaurant; we couldn't hear the music (all we heard was the traffic) and the service was poor as we were essentially 'out of sight, out of mind'.
Delectable food and drink options, you can’t go wrong. Familiar old friend service, and the overall comfort of your favourite worn sweater. Always a great evening.
Very cute and quirky neighbourhood eatery, food is top notch - small menu so you know they really put their heart into every menu item. Nice hand crafted cocktails. We visited on Canada Day and they had a very important initiative of donating a significant share of a specific cocktail proceeds to an Indigenous charity.
Our server made up for the value of the meals. Burger was ordinary and the duck with the pasta was dry.
Adveraised a promotion, which they even put on my reservation confirmation, then did not offer the promotion when I arrived. No attempt to compensate, just an "oh whoops". Basically i was scammed to get in the door. Sent an email about it that was not replied to. Never going back.
Lovely dinner on the patio! Food and drinks were great. Cool vibe on the patio.
Fantastic job of creating a COVID friendly dining environment. Compared with pre COVID the menu options are quite limited - just be warned in case you were expecting the usual offerings.
Friendly service and good food in reasonable portions.
Service was prompt and friendly, food was simple & delicious. A perfect first post-isolation date night! Thank you to all the staff there for your hard work and fabulous service.
Great experience! Wonderful brunch on a busy Father’s Day at the tavern! Food was fantastic, and service was fantastic - nice to see such teamwork amongst e staff. Thanks for a great morning!
Great little spot, will definitely return!!!!!!!!!
Nice people serving great food!
It was my first patio experience after lockdown and it was amazing! Richard was an outstanding server - so nice, personable, and excited to be there. Even with lesser seating times so they can seat more people, they weren’t pushy about it at all. They were very nice about letting us finish our drinks but they were efficient so that we could get in and out in the amount of time they wanted. Overall a wonderful night and 10/10 service!
Very nice staff and service, and the food & drinks were amazing— hot apple cider with Irish whiskey!
My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful date night on the patio! The staff was amazing and the food was incredible. Can't wait to visit again soon!
The new outdoor patio during these covid times is a welcome addition this restaurant. Well done! Great Brunch menu!
The heated patio was cozy and inviting. Service was friendly and the food delicious. Highly recommend!
Delicious food & great atmosphere. The new heated/covered patio is amazing!
Awesome food and service. Thanks!
Fantastic food and service. The staff here really take care of their customers and even made us new dishes to go as we were dining out on their patio when a rainstorm hit and our food got wet. We will definitely return in the future!
We had a wonderful time, our server on the patio was super cool and fun and attentive. The food was exceptional. We will definitely be back
We both ate mushrooms on toast for a Saturday brunch visit. Server did not explain the dish correctly. It came with egg when no egg was mentioned (I cannot eat eggs). The dish tasted like the previous days leftovers mixed with some mushrooms and placed onto toast.
