FARMHOUSE Tavern Ratings and Reviews
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.
Poor service from the host , waitress with severe attitude issue , I dare anyone to ask for a extra fork or napkins since it was very noisy we might ask her to explain menu and we ask for jam ( after she told me " I told you already " Wow we couldn't beleive it. She storm to the open kitchen and told the others about our table . We felt stress to ask for anything extra. We definitely felt not welcome. Food average . We will never go back! Customer service needs to be addressed!
I went to Farmhouse to have Saturday brunch with a friend. I liked it the instant I walked in. It has a lively and fun vibe, the service was good, and the food was delicious. I like that they use locally grown food as much as possible, and smoke their own bacon. I will definitely go there again.
I've been to Farmhouse Tavern many times. More than any other fine dining restaurant in Toronto. Decor is eclectic. Shifting menu.
Came in with a group of 8, which is never easy for any restaurant to handle. Our server, Michaela, was great and funny and patient. Food was simply fantastic as usual. I had the Cote de Boeuf with my wife. Others had fish, the barnyard burger. All was great. Can't ask for a for a better place. Good Ontario-sourced ingredients well prepared, that's it.
My husband and I brought our two-year old here, and everything was superb.
The service was outstanding, the menu was delectable and we were all very satisfied at the end of the meal. I think all of the nick knacks on the wall kept our daughter in her chair too!
Another bonus is that you can make reservations online and for brunch. Thanks so much!
Arrived a bit late in the night for buck a shuck Wednesday only to find out they were out of oysters. This was our second consecutive night of missing out on "buck a shuck", different place the night before. As I lamented about our bad luck, the owner/manager (can't remember which) overheard and went back into the kitchen to see what he could do to help. We ended up getting the last 11 oysters for the price of half a dozen. Just awesome, made our night as we were so disappointed for missing out two nights in a row. Besides the great service, we love the food here. We had a warm smoked cabbage salad which was amazing; rivaled the 10 oz ribeye my wife and I shared. Great drinks, warm and cozy atmosphere, perfect for a winters night out. We will be back!
This is the second time I've been to Farmhouse tavern. The first was in the summer, on the patio. It was great then, and great again. It was a family dinner, and we were able to accommodate everyone's various food needs - the vegetarian options were delicious - farmhouse has turned me into a fan of beets and winter salads. the beer choices are good, and the service was friendly and helpful, although as the restaurant became more crowded, it was tougher for our server to get back to us quickly. she managed to make us feel welcome and well taken care of nonetheless. I recommend the winter salad, and get the deserts! The cheese platter and chocolate cake with multiple forks for sharing was excellent.
My one request would be to add a choice that is low carb ( paleo friendly?) without it being a massive steak - How about a half steak? In our previous visit, two of us shared a steak, which was more than enough. A smaller steak would be a great option.
Overall, this was a great experience. Our gorgeous dark haired server was amazing-the best! The burger was outstanding as was the soup. The only complaint is that the vegetable medley entree was very sparse and hardly a main meal. It seemed like more of an appetizer in terms of portion size. And it could of used a bit more flavour!
However, I would certainly come back again!
Service was great! I am still thinking about the food days later! It was awesome. You need to try their ploughman's platter if available. The only suggestion I have is for wait staff to fully explain what comes to the table. We had to ask what the items were on the ploughman's and then wait staff had to go and ask...
Was disappointed in the lack of service. Found the blonde waitress to be very rude and stand off-ish. For the price I was disappointed. Our 60 ounce ribeye was more like 40 ounces, everything tasted the same. The atmosphere is not great, restaurant is very noisy, with the people, music and extremely open kitchen. Location is good, but defiantly would not go here again
Review is for brunch in the private dining area. Our server was energetic and to the point, with no hesitation to provide what we needed and take responsibility for any slight errors (of which there were few). You can reserve the private dining area on open table by having a party of 9+, so long as you're willing to put down your credit card and give proper notice if cancelling.
The brunch menu is small and meat-forward, if that's a thing, with a nice selection of house made goodies. It's mostly breakfast with booze and a burger option, but the breakfast is great, so it shouldn't be an issue. I had the country breakfast - scrambled eggs, three types of meat, sourdough and jam. Everything was flavorful and prepared well. Mother + Child reunion looks like a great choice as well. Wish i lived closer.
Note - a friend did say the pancakes were nothing to write home about, but when I'm at a place that makes their own sausages, bacon, and offers foie gras on everything, I gravitate towards the meat dishes.
10 women celebrating the Christmas season as we have for 23 straight. We all met 23 years ago working at a bar in Toronto while at university. One vegan and one veg in the group. When asked what option was available for a vegan waitress noted the eggs in the nest. We then asked for no eggs as we need vegan.
our waitress then went onto to "enlighten" us to the fact that people that don't eat all meat and all parts of meat are privileged. That it's because of this privilege that we can afford to able eat like this.
She went onto tell us that she was vegan for 5 years but gave it up after travelling and now eats all parts including intestines.
Being shamed for being "rich enough" to order and eat , for the past 20 years a vegan diet in front of a group of people is unacceptable.
Then to have same waitress recommend a $200 dollar of wine which actually is not so expensive as it is a Magnum is the icing, right?
We are a varied group of women.. We are teachers, writers, architects, owners of businesses small and large, we are in marketing and healthcare but above all we are open minded accepting women who cherish this one day a year we allow ourselves to celebrate friendship and love without judgement.
Food was great, back room perfect for a get together full of load laughter.
Good eating down at the Farmhouse
Forth trip back, out of my way but worth the ride.
Limited blackboard posted menu but what they are making is always super yummy.
Usually a fish dish, a pasta, burger, veggie dish or two and hop cut stake. Sometimes duck confit which is a fav of mine.
Music was too loud for conversations but they turned it down a bit. Server very good and real. Would recommend.
Two friends and I went for brunch. The service was fast and the food came quickly, but there wasn't any warmth from our server (or when we first walked in - we actually felt like our presence wasn't really appreciated and we had a reservation!). We found the little round coffee-bistro-style tables a bit awkward.
Farmhouse is a neighbourhood jem and they definitely put an effort to create a cozy, rustic environment. It seems to be a magnet for the 'lumbersexual' (apparently that's a thing), which stands to reason, given the style of the place. Overall, I'd say, the food is good, the place has an identity, but staff could be a little more welcoming.
pleasant staff. however, we would have liked to sit in the brighter, quieter side of the restaurant . host who seated us spoke quickly and we couldn't hear the options. music too loud.
dinner was very good. dessert was not good. bland. pastry undercooked .
