    OK visit. Have been here twice before pre-COVID. We really enjoyed the gnocchi, but many of the other dishes didn't measure up to our previous experiences. $75pp share menu was good value from a volume perspective, but would have preferred less food and a bit more finesse. Will try a different place next time.

    We made a reservation for a special birthday dinner for a few family birthdays. We loved the unpretentious, charming space. The service was outstanding. We tried most of the vegetarian options on the menu. Everything was artfully prepared and tasted as good as it looked! Our server guided us for portions. We shared everything and ordered about 8 dishes for 4 of us. Plenty of food! We didn’t do the tasting menu because we wanted to make our own selections. If you like fine dining and appreciate locally sourced ingredients, eat here! You will not be disappointed.

    2 of our group of 6 are celiac, and the menu worked great - even doing family style. It seemed like 80% of the menu choices were gluten free.

    The team's surely full of good intent but the cooking is so healthy it takes away from the flavor, and we came home hungry despite quite a high bill.

    We left rather disappointed. Came for a special occasion that was not acknowledged at all. Food & service both underwhelming & didn't live up to the great reviews. Meals weren't very filling. We ordered 5 dishes for 2 people & we left unsatisfied. Service lacked attention. We waited forever for a "final dish" that we didn't order but the server thought was coming... It never came. We thought maybe the kitchen was surprising us with something for our special occasion... but it was just a server error. Sadly no effort to resolve the error & improve the experience. We would not return or recommend.

    Terrible service, we got the tasting menu and it took forever between courses. We sat for 30 minutes after we were done to pay our bill. Food was okay, overpriced and not that good. Would never return.

    I brought my friends who were visiting from Toronto. They have been here many times before and have dined and many fine establishments. I suggested The Farmer's Apprentice as a hidden gem that they might not have heard of in their previous visits. I said you will not be disappointed. To say the least, they were not. They enjoyed the food, the wine and the ambience, as did I. Good Show Farmer's Apprentice!

    This was our first visit to Farmers Apprentice and our server was very patient with us. She explained everything on the menu, the different ingredients, the different preparations and flavours and different ways we could order. She was wonderful! When the food began to arrive we were blown away. Each dish was unique and the flavours interesting and the presentation showed showed such love. Our experience magical. After so long being at home, being in a warm, inviting atmosphere with delicious food and lovely wines and great service was such a treat! We will highly recommend the Farmers Apprentice.

    Clearly chefs love to use their imagination and apply their skill. I wish the food and overall experience had been substantially more in line for our meal with the reputation and price they charge. Would be very hard to recommend to anyone based on our experience.

    Every dish ordered was delicious from the flavours, presentation & selection. Size of restaurant was small and cozy, very much a neighbourhood feel. Only one feedback, though the ambiance was great for dinner, because of low lighting, menu font could be a little bigger or bolder.

    Fantastic menu and great service. Great mix of local in-season ingredients and Asian flavorings (Japanese, Vietnamese, Philippine, you name it) and go for the chef's choice family dinner, you won't be disappointed. It's a small space with an open kitchen so it can be noisy, and occasionally the smell of deep frying can take over the space. But overall pleasant.

    The server we had was very informative. The menu was explained very thoroughly and she had recommended to us some very solid dishes. They forgot to bring us the sourdough bread we ordered however it was brought to us with haste after we had reminded them we had ordered it. To top it all off, my glass of sparkling water was never empty as they ensured it was topped off every time they walked by.

    The farmers apprentice always meet our expectations. We enjoyed very creative and tasteful courses. I especially liked the roasted cabbage, the octopus was tender and flavorful. Our table was close to the door which created a draft at times. Staff were very conscientious about keeping it closed as much as possible. Greatly appreciated!
