I have been coming to farmers apprentice now for nine years and I always enjoyed my experience. But for some reason this summer menu tasted very much like a fall/winter menu…being a extremely heavy gnocchi with almost no fresh vegetables and then a pork neck cutlet that came with nothing but sauce A light drizzling of sauce top making this feel like a very heavy winter meal.

As usual the menu and service at the restaurant was excellent the only downside was there was a great deal of unpleasant smoke and cooking odours from kitchen that crept into the dining area. It is possible the these smells were not properly being captured by the kitchen exhaust system due to the front door being open (as a result of covid) thus being sucked into the dining area.

Marisa provided excellent service and wine recommendations! The oysters to start and the panna cotta dessert we had were the best I've had in years - super fresh and flavourful.

The service is always amazing here, Marissa is the best!
The food does not disappoint, it is beyond delicious, it’s also presented beautifully.
We always get bread & butter, it’s a staple for us, I even broke my no dairy diet to eat it.
The prawns are the best thing ever.
The wine list is superb, you can’t go wrong with any of them.
Thank you so much to everyone at Farmer’s Apprentice !

Bread was great. Salads great. Not enough spot prawns for the ordered one pound. Had spot prawns in another restaurant and got the same amount for half a pound. Food is good but pricey.
Not enough protein dish options! Two duck dishes and prawns… I don’t eat duck so one choice for an entree.

We love the concept and some of the dishes were exquisite. But our chicken was undercooked and the portions were tiny. We weren't as blown away by the food as we felt we should be for the price we paid.

Food was great! We had oysters, tar tar, main dish and dessert, and with a bottle of wine to go with the delicious food. Ambiance is rustic and cosy which fits us both. Service could be much better.

Love this place.. I hadn’t been in a while but mi like that the menu seems to change up a bitevery so often. the cabbage/apple dish & the salmon were especially delicious this time around... extremely delicious and thoughtful meal. My fiancé hadn’t been yet and loved it too.

The squash pancake was a marvel of textures and flavours--utterly delicious as a shared appetizer or a vegetarian main.

The chicken main course was substantial. The Oro salmon was perfectly cooked, medium rare, so it was moist and silken.

It was a marvelous meal that we thoroughly enjoyed. Good local food, prepared with care and attention.

Some of the best meals I have had in the past several years have been at this restaurant. There is always something unique and delicious on the menu...in the past: arrowroot crackers with pepita seeds, the most amazing pasta in broth ever and on this visit the celeriac tahini dip that I would order repeatedly.

I love this eatery and always look forward to introducing it to my friends.

Great food. Great service. Cute little restaurant. We ordered the family style dinner, where they choose what they serve you. I have to say, out of the 7 or 8 dishes that came out, not a single one was something I would have chosen to order but they were all amazing. This place is great and I would recommend it to anybody.
