                            The food and drinks were great! The ambience was so nice. It was not too quiet or so loud you couldn’t hear. It’s just comfortable. Crowd is not stuffy and is just there for good food and drinks. Loved everything, service, and food!

                            Outstanding food. Incredible cider list. Struggling with service though - I was here twice recently and service was either borderline aggressive or extremely pushy/rude. What I mean by that is coming 3,4,5 times per dish (!) to ask how the food was, but also interrupting a very deep and difficult conversation I was having with my friend. Multiple times. Please read people's body language and respect their privacy :)

                            I am hesitant to write a positive review because sometimes we decide last minute where to eat and Her Fathers’s Cider Bar is getting so popular that it’s tough to get a seat. This is one of our favourite places to eat. The food is always great and the staff are very friendly and professional. I highly recommend this a a great spot for both couples and groups.

                            The food here was exceptional, the cider amazing and service was friendly but the place was definitely overwhelmed/perhaps struggling with staff numbers, particularly in the kitchen, despite not being full. We waited about an hour for our food to come out, which is a long time for brunch items - but it was perfect when it did arrive. Servers were available and responded quickly to queries. Prices very reasonable for the quality of the food and drinks. Will definitely go back and if they sort out their staffing/whatever caused the delays the other day - the experience will be pretty much perfect.

                            We were first seated in a noisy area and asked if the bonus of the music could be dialed back. Instead we were offered a quiet table in the back room. Excellent solution. Delicious food and expert advice from the staff on choice of dishes.

                            I have never had an experience the way I did at Her Father’s. It was absolutely amazing!!! The drinks came out quickly along with everything else. The food was amazing. Our servers answered any questions we had and helped us with recommendations and even gave my boyfriend a little glass with some cider he wanted to try but was unsure of. Servers were amazing and we stated in the reservation that we were celebrating our anniversary so they gave us a little bag with a mug in it. Definitely will be coming back.

                            Had brunch with a colleague and his wife visiting from Italy. They loved HF as much as we do - this was the first day of their new brunch menu - everything was awesome. The food and service here is always spot on. Always busy but great table spacing so it's still easy to carry on a conversation at your table. Joe's breakfast, Croque Madame, Shakshuka and of course the ciders were outstanding.

                            This is my second time here. Service is always amazing and food is delicious! The cider menu is so unique and makes for a fun conversation piece.

                            The cider sampler’s are amazing great value! For 3 4oz ciders (given 12 choices) it cost 11.99+tax. Although the food is on the more pricy side, it’s presented beautifully and not to mention delicious! Had the fried chicken (10/10) and the braised pork belly (8/10) it was very good but I forgot how fatty pork belly is. About 1/4 of the thick Meat was fat which I don’t eat.

                            My partner and I had been coming to HerFathers for a few years pre and during the pandemic and always appreciated the vegan options present at our favourite cider bar... we were told a few times that they always have a vegan main dish so we didn't check the menu before booking a dinner for date night. We were quite disappointed to not only learn that there are no longer any vegan mains as of very recently, but that there was only a salad option. We had to leave and go somewhere else for dinner. Quite suprised that a restaurant that always had a solid vegan / dairy allergen conscious option for the last few years would remove that...

                            The cider sélection is very good. The fried chicken is such an interesting take on dill pickle flavour. It's a great little spot.

                            Amazing experience! They have a wide variety of ciders so everyone found one they loved and the food was delicious! I have celiac and they had tons of gluten free options and were very knowledgeable about it. I will definitely be going back and I would highly recommend it for a fun dinner out!

                            Food is great. However, we waited almost an hour for the food to come out and 30 minutes for the drink to even arrive. My friend arrived later and he didn't even receive water after 30 mins.

                            Understand that they had new staffs but everything was just so late… we ordered a side salad which arrived when we were done with our main menu so had to cancel..

                            Sunday brunch was excellent. Service was good knowing they were hustling with fewer servers. Staff checked on food and service, and apologized the food didn't come out faster. We enjoyed the meal and pace of service. Great for Sunday brunch. Will go back to try dinner.

                            Friendly servers. There was a mixup with the starter — we chose the buttermilk chicken from the snack menu — updated since our last time, so they didn’t charge us. We had the burgers for our main — probably the best burger I ever eaten. So yummy! My partners wine wasn’t great (that’s what you get for ordering wine at a cider bar). My cider was delicious. We sat in the back room, much quieter than front room. Perfect for us.
