We have dined at this restaurant many times. Larger groups (10+) as well as two persons. The selection of cider is outstanding. The staff have always been very knowledgable about the drinks as well as the food being offered. The selection of rotating ciders is a big part of why we come to Her Father's Cider Bar. We highly recommend this restaurant.

What a fun place to drink and eat! So many ciders to sample, on draft or in bottles of various sizes. We got to try things we had never heard of before, and the food was incredible. Highly recommend the braised short rib dish, it really hit the spot on a cold evening.

All the tables were booked when we arrived, and once you experience the unbelievably great food, attentive service and drink we understand why. One of the best meals I've had in a long time - perfect presentation and taste. Bartender and waiters were awesome helping us navigate through the huge selection of ciders. Coming back here for sure.

LOVED this place, lunch was delicious. So many ciders to choose from, I had a flight of 3 and then what I had really come for, the pineapple cider (best thing ever!!). Will be back soon for sure.

We are so grateful to call Her Father’s our neighbourhood spot. There’s nothing else like it in the city. The food is exciting and changing with the seasons, and the cider selection is unparalleled. They go the extra mile during special occasions without us even expecting it. We love it here!

Reserved a table for a Sunday brunch.
Service was simply outstanding. Staff were welcoming, attentive, explained the specials and gave great recommendations on ciders/drinks. We never felt rushed nor was service slow; coat service was appreciated. We were celebrating a birthday and HFC generously gifted a HFC mug - really unexpected!

The table ordered the special which was French Toast with Blueberries and the Dad's Breakfast. Would have come back for the food even if service wasn't great. French toast wasn't overly sweet, perfectly balanced, should be a permanent item. Can't go wrong with a classic brunch like Dad's Breakfast. Good portion sizes. Planning on coming back to try the rest of the menu.

HFC is a really nice space in a beautiful neighbourhood. Good for both special occasions and casual outings. The decor wasn't fussy but not threadbare; I really liked the stained glass windows.

I would highly recommend anyone to stop by HFC - I can see why locals want to keep it a secret.

Delicious meal. We thought the Brussel sprouts were outstanding. The steelhead trout was among the best fish I have ever had at a restaurant. The service was friendly, attentive without being over bearing. Server was authentic and very pleasant. Wine and beer selections were good. The food was worth the price!

I come to Her Father's Cider Bar + Kitchen about five times a year to celebrate special occasions with loved ones. This past time happened to be my birthday. The entire staff at HF made me feel welcomed, warm and relaxed for my special day. The food and drinks were incredible as per usual, their sustainable values and rotating menu always brings my partner and I back. At the end of the meal the team at HF presented me with a present! A mug from HF for my birthday. I love Her Father's Cider Bar + Kitchen and will always recommend it to friends, family and co-workers.

Great cider selection. We had 2 flights and enjoyed them all. Several good gluten free options. Great service. We had a reservation, they were running a couple minutes behind and gave us a free cider sample for our 10 minute inconvenience. Would definitely go back.

Everything was amazing. My girlfriend and I went in for dinner the other night on vacation. The style was great, the chair I sat in was something I would sit in at my parents house. The wait staff was great, checked in but not to much. A lot of knowledge of the menu and the product. Helped us out picking out main course. The food was incredible, so fresh, local and you could really tell. One of the best burgers I have had and same with the trout. Overall one of the best spots I have been to in a long time. Thank you very much for a great experience.

Went here early Saturday afternoon for brunch with a friend. We had a reservation and were quickly seated. Brunch is quite popular here and the seats around us filled up fast. The decor is warm and charming, and the servers were extremely courteous. We both ordered a Dad's Breakfast and a Hot Pressed Cider. Both the food and drink were delicious and portions were generous. Make sure to try their sauces made in-house! Price is towards the higher end (approx. $31 after tax and tip), but the quality and portion of the food is reflected in the price.

Sat at the bar, did some cider tasting and ate apps. Bartender did a great job explaining the ciders and was attentive to our needs, but not in an overbearing way where we could still have a private conversation. Definitely will return when back in Toronto
