Server was attentive & let us know about the special of the day, which was a very delicious French toast that I ended up ordering. Extensive cider list, which I’m sure a true cider affectionate will enjoy immensely. They were also accommodating, a friend bailed last minute and they were able to sit us at a different (smaller) table.

A friend introduced me to Her Father's Cider earlier this year, and it has since become my new favorite Toronto restaurant! Everything about it is wonderful- the atmosphere, the food, the service. I highly recommend ordering the Brussel sprouts and fried chicken- both incredibly delicious. I recently went to HFC for my birthday and they sent our table a free cider tasting for a toast and gave me free merch! Cannot recommend checking this place out enough!!

Amazing service and food and cider (obviously!) - just a really passionate and knowledgeable team and my friend (it was her birthday) received a cute little mug as well as some candles in our desserts! Love this place so much!

We went for Valentine’s Day and it was so cute. We were in the back room and it was quiet enough for a conversation. The service was great! You could tell they really wanted to make sure we were okay and having a good time. The cider was also great! I had the risotto and my partner had the rib eye and they were both really yummy. Definitely recommend.

Had enjoyed our first date there a few years ago, but hadn't been back and really enjoyed the Valentine's Day dinner prix fixe. Was so much food we had to take some home with us - including the dessert (which kept the night going in a perfect way when we got home!)

Very beautiful place, wonderful staff and amazing food. Keep in mind - portions are not very big but they are very delicious. Also, I found that the prices are a bit high, but you pay for very good quality. For two people we payed 100$ (including tips). The cider is something I have to go back for (and I am not a cider fan). I really recommend this place and will go back soon.

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.

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.
