Their Sunday deals are great if you have a little bit of time to kill. The food is worth it outside of the deals but the hourly specials make it all the better.

The food was disappointed. Appetizer steak tartare was too salty. I ordered a fish and chip, the fish was raw. My wife ordered a sausage pasta, lacked of taste. The service was great, waitress with good smile and nice attitude.

Great neighbourhood place to catch up with a friend, over tasty food and a glass of wine.
Not to mention that the staff is attentive and welcoming, without being overbearing.
I'll definitely be back!

Amazing brunch destination - patio was perfect and everyone who works there is super friendly and helpful. Every dish that we ordered (4 ppl) was amazing and we all plan on going there again soon. Bacon was thick cut and cooked to crispy perfection. Poached eggs were perfectly cooked and fries were crisp and fresh.

We went to enjoy the buck-a-shuck oysters the Farmhouse serves on Sundays from 5-6 pm, but the Farmhouse burger I had was one of the best I have ever tasted. Staff were very friendly. The sunny patio was a lovely oasis after the Toronto winter. The farm-to-table philosophy is highly successful here.

We've dined at Farmhouse Tavern several times. The food and drink selection is awesome, and the ambiance is really cozy. It's a great Friday evening spot for a casual, solid meal. We came with a big crowd this time and it might've been a bit large; they did their best and we were all seated together in the main area but the tables are small and round and it made for a tight meal. We'll be back though :)

Overall great ambiance and service but the food was disappointing and poor value. The Veg platter was a giant head of cauliflower hardly cooked and charred on top with under cooked Brussels sprouts - not a good value for 19. The meats were also overdone and portions small. I heard good things about the burger.

Very much enjoyed the Burger, lots of tasty ingredients. It came with fries which were good. At the time I did not think about requesting a salad in lieu of the fries, not sure if this is an option.
Casual funky atmosphere very pleasant and the staff totally on their game. Well done.

Brunch menu was very exciting , but execution terribly flawed. Both myself and guest (who is also a restaurant owner) were tremendously dialsappointed. Prices were quite high but I would have had no problem with that had the product been of a similarly high quality. I never write reviews but this meal was so bad, combined with the price that i decided to break with tradition.

Farmhouse is really awesome for every reason that could possibly make a restaurant awesome. Most importantly, an innovative and delicious menu at a reasonable price. The rest is fluff, awesome fluff, but fluff indeed (aka decor.. ambiance..etc)

Wow

The best restaurant I’ve been to in a lovely big time.
I appreciated the refinement of a French bistro with the curb appeal of a farmhouse full of nice antiques.

The staff and especially our waitress were fantastic.

I will come back :)

Food was great, but the wine list? Only in Canada. Pity!
Wine is such an important component to a stellar meal. I used to go to this restaurant often, but stopped because of the limited wine selections.

Absolutely fabulous, always. Never disappointed with the food at the Farmhouse. The servers are great, the staff are so friendly. It’s wonderful to be able to directly thank the kitchen staff on our way out too. It’s worth the trip, worth every penny.

We came in with a six-person party for a birthday and the service was awesome -- even when the toddler in our midst started screeching. Far from being fussed, the servers were good-natured and went out of their way to make sure we had a great experience.

Went for Sunday brunch - small menu, but nice variety of choices, including for my vegetarian guest. Eggs Benedict was very good, served on a homemade biscuit. Coffee refills came just when we needed them, despite how busy servers were. Very busy brunch, small room - make a reservation.

Farmhouse Tavern makes you forget your in the city. The quaint and cozy atmosphere is refreshing. Our server was attentive and explained the menu well. We decided on the bacon benny, home made fries and buttermilk pancakes. Everything is made in house or locally. Overall, wonderful experience. Will be back

Group of 3 went for brunch. It was expensive. My friend's burger came out raw, even the server said so. Sent it back, and she got a new burger but obviously she was put off. Got the Gretzky Coffee, which is essentially baileys coffee. On the chalkboard it said $8 but rang in $8.99. Not a big deal, but why not just put $9 on the chalkboard so it's more honest? My other friend did "build your own breakfast" and because she is vegetarian, it wasn't really worth it. The washrooms should be unisex since they're single stall anyway. The men's room lights didn't work and toilet didn't flush...
PROS: Our server was lovely and the fries were good.

Great place for casual brunch with interesting twists to the usual fare. Try for a table away from the front door in the winter...
