    Our food and service was excellent. The dishes are veg forward and the menu could perhaps use one more protein, but everything is extremely creative and meticulously prepared. The server was very knowledgeable and attentive. The ambiance was pleasant but too bright, and would benefit from lower overhead lights and some candles. Will be back!

    Had not been back to this restaurant in a few years, but it's still good. They are creative with their dishes and I always end up eating some ingredient that I'm not too familiar with previously (which is a nice learning experience for my palate). Current menu has lots of umami fine tuned into almost every dish, but if I'm being nit-picky I almost thought it was too much... Eg I wanted more diversity of flavors (and textures!). Don't get me wrong... It's still probably better than 99% of the other Vancouver restaurants serving high technique and finesse dishes. I think I'll come back soon to see if my thoughts about the flavor profiles and textures not being diverse enough from this trip hold true

    We had the family style menu that includes 8 courses where each dish is uniquely done and tasted great. The place is quite small which I prefer. It wasn’t busy when we went so it’s perfect for anyone who enjoys a quiet conversation over good dinner. The service is as great as their food. This place is worth a visit!

    On their menu they stated multiple vegetarian dishes were availible, but once my party arrived apparently some of them weren’t entirely vegetarian as some were cooked in various animal fats. The service was great! They were apologetic for the misrepresentation, but I mean, don’t advertise a dish as vegetarian if it isn’t entirely vegetarian? That being said, I would recommend the restaurant as the service was great and the food we were able to eat was delicious!

    Our order took ages to come. The food was very nice but the menu is really hard to negotiate. You have to ask the server a lot of questions as nothing is explained . For example, the pork chop on the menu had no price listed so when we asked about it , turned out it was a 20 oz. serving (!) for $90.00 so presumably it was for more than one person. The room is tiny and with the music conversation is difficult.

    The restaurant has a nice open kitchen design and was a welcoming space in general. Service was efficient. The menu choices TBH didn't look as good "on paper" as they ended up, fortunately one of our party had been there before and made suggestions. All the dishes were good, some were excellent. I do have one pet peeve : please don't asked rhetorically whether "we're done" or "how are WE enjoying the food"? It sounds patronising, unless the server is planning to join us. Highlights from the dishes were smoked olives, and pork shoulder. The fish crudo was a lovely combination of seafood, "sauce" and a little crunch. "Ikura sando" was quite cute but you need to appreciate "fishy flavours". I do, my wife (who wasn't present) wouldn't have. We ordered a single dessert to split 3 ways, it was enough to give each diner a couple of spoonfuls. Excellent. Parking on the street is metered and a little tight... you might have to do some walking.

    First time trying this restaurant but we will definitely be back! Certainly the best food we’ve had in Vancouver. We tried the Japanese eggplant, corn gnocchi and 60 day dry aged pork chop as well as Mochi cake dessert and all were honestly 10/10. Food was the highest quality of cooking. I would recommend this place to anyone looking to share plates or for any occasion! Make sure you try the daily cocktail it was so tasty too! Can’t wait to go back!

    The food was underwhelming for the price. Portions were small and, although everything tasted good, the flavours and dishes were not something I would go back for. Also, we had the family style menu and paid $160 ($80 per person) but ended up getting $131 worth of food (confirmed by looking at their menu pricing). Best to order à la carte.

    We have wanted to go to Farmer's Apprentice for many years. COVID got in the way of course. It was the best meal out we have had since moving to Vancouver 8 years ago. A bit more than we usually spend going out. We were celebrating a special occasion and it was well worth the splurge!! The servers were very attentive and knowledgable. We will be going back again soon.

    Amazingly creative dishes. Happy to support a local resto that buys local and uses fresh sustainable ingredients. Be prepared for the prices to reflect that. Be sure to check out the partner cocktail bar next door, Grapes + Soda before or after dinner.
