FARMHOUSE Tavern Ratings and Reviews
Food and service is great. The only comment is that they need to pay attention to acoustics. Even in my early 30s; I had a hard time to hear people across and beside me. This might be attributed to the open kitchen and lack of material to dampen noise in the space. I think just reducing noise by a few decibles would do wonders for not only the people eating there; but also those working there.
We've been to the Farmhouse Tavern for a bachelorette party and for some personal reasons we almost cancelled our reservation. It would have been a serious and bad decision because the food and atmosphere was so AMAZING!! We had no regret at all! We had a private room just for us, a hunting cabin-room with some freaky but cool decorations! We enjoy the food, service was great, we all loved it!!
Excellent food and menu choices with fresh ingredients that I believe the owner sources straight from the farm. Cute rustic atmosphere.
Went on Father's day for brunch and it was super busy, so unfortunately service was delayed. However, they were very courteous in dealing with the situation.
Would definitely go again, highly recommended.
was so disappointed. With the amazing reviews this place has, we were expected so much more. We had the Ploughman's platter and then left to go to a different restaurant for our main course. We sat inside. It was a hot night...not air conditioned and incredibly noisy. My husband and I had to yell at eachother to have a conversation. The menu is too limited pretentious (big fish, harvest vegetables are fine ...but the attitude is just 'order the protein and we will fill the dish with whatever and trust us it will be great". Ploughman's platter was good, but tiny portions and nothing special. They ran out of the Summer Salad (the only raw veggie salad/dish). How do you offer only one salad and then run out? The attitude is that 'you go there for the experience and just trust the chef'. Problem is that the prices are very high and the pretentious air just doesn't fit the fact that the place is basically a local neighbourhood hangout. Not a great vibe unless you're from the neighbourhood and everyone knows you and greets you when you walk in (at expense of new patrons who are wondering how the hell the menu works). Seriously, save your money and go to the place 2 doors east to this restaurant for wonderful Italian at half the price....where they have air conditioning and are without the attitude. We couldn't find one thing we liked in the menu (4 items on it) and ended up going to Roncesvalles for our main course.
We met some friends for a meal at Farmhouse Tavern on Saturday night.
The pros: they have a great patio which made for a lovely outdoor eating experience.
The cons: poor value for the money. I don't mind spending money on a good meal, but the food we had was simply ok and the portions were very small. I was hungry when we left and needed a snack at home.
We had the strawberry pancakes and the eggs Benedict. Both dishes were superbly prepared and had exceptional flavours and textures. Nothing weird, just high quality, in-house made ingredients from the cheddar biscuit in the Benedict to the vanilla bean in the perfectly whipped cream topping the pancakes.
They are trying too hoard to be special and they are failing. The food is very normal, nothing special. There is a lot of noise and the sitting is pretty horrible, very uncomfortable. The service is not bad. I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone, the only reason I came here is because it took reservations for brunch and hate standing in lines in the morning but if you are looking for such place, check out the list on BlogTO, I recommend Ricarda.
...sure, you can be judgemental about the overly engineered "hipster" feel... you can criticize the overtly mismatched cutlery and glassware, or reflect on how cliche it is to be served water from a mason jar... but then you're missing the point.
The Farmhouse Tavern serves simply incredible food, simply prepared to let the ingredients be the hero - and all of those ingredients are LOCAL. And the place is casual and fun.
My wife and I needed a break from the universe, and we found our secret oasis here on a Friday night. We shared a carrot salad starter, which was simply amazing. My "fish dish" main featured rainbow trout sitting on top a bed of kale.. perfectly seasoned and perfectly cooked. My wife's vegetarian main was equally great.
Cocktails were incredible and included local spirits.. we usually surf from restaurant to restaurant scanning the reviews of the latest it spots, and we rarely return to any particular resto, but I think we'll be coming back for more to see how the menu evolves.
We have dined at the Farmhouse on a few occasions and we have always appreciated the local fare. The wine list is all Ontario, an unusual stand on wine which is supported by a well curated selection. The food is simple and yet creative. A great burger, good pastas, excellent beef and, if you've got the moxy, the Big Bird which is a remarkable dish for three to four people.
I've lived in the neighbourhood for the last 5 years and heard great things about this restaurant but it's always busy so you need to book ahead! Some friends took me here for a farewell dinner so I could finally try it out before I left. The noise level is a bit high because of the space but the server was very attentive and knowledgeable about the menu and the wine and cocktail list. The menu itself is somewhat limited but I understand that it changes constantly. The food was very good, obviously made from fresh ingredients and quite creative in combining different elements. It's a bit on the pricey side but worth it for a special occasion.
Had an unfortunate experience at Farmhouse. Bone Marrow & foie gras was very good, albeit quite oily but it did arrive promptly. The entrees, which we shared, included the 14oz ribeye steak and roasted harvest vegetables which arrived late (:20 minutes later). The meat was over cooked (definitely not medium rare) yet the vegetables were undercooked and the flavour was off on both. The server was very good and apologetic. She even compted 2 glasses of wine (the clearly cheapest of our 2 vintages). Too bad, we really wanted to like it given it's local food philosophy.
Farmhouse Tavern was a surprise treat. On arriving, we were a bit surprised to discover a quite small, pub-like environment. The menu was limited to a small handful of dishes for dinner. So, unsure what to expect, we were delighted with the quality of the food which was outstanding, the friendliness of the waiter and the nice vibe of the place. Not your classic restaurant feel, but we would certainly go back. Lovely.
