    The food was surprising and delightful. We got the tasting course and I strongly recommend doing that so you can try as many things as possible. A really quaint classy spot, great service, scrumptious! I’ll never forget the cabbage holy eff

    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!

    Everything we had tasted delicious (beet salad, pork chop, and the octopus). If you are sitting at home thinking I really want some great food tonight this is definitely a great choice. If you are someone who really takes food extremely seriously there was one tiny issue, that being that all the dishes were a little one note but it was a great note each time. The pork chop in particular was for all intensive purposes just a pork chop with garnish and it was kind of a strange experience having just a protein for dinner but I loved the flavor.

    The olives were the best I've ever had. However, the pork chop was too fatty that 1/3 was inedible. I wish I could have been told upon ordering so I could make an informed decision. The entire space is smokey due to the open kitchen and inadequate ventilation.

    We did the tasting menu and really enjoyed everything. Very interesting dishes were served, lots of flavor. The dishes come out rather quickly. (Would be nice to have a bit more time between each dish as it's a lot of food!). Very knowledgeable servers regarding food and drinks/wine. Overall a really nice restaurant with great food!
