Sit at the kitchen bar if available, "Dinner and a Show"
This place never fails to impress. My husband wished that there was more meat on the brunch menu, but I found there to be a satisfactory amount. Both my grandmother and I had the fois cakes (superb) my mother had the Benny, though she didn't care for the biscuit, and finally my husband had the burger witch we already know it's outstanding and it was. Bottom line: go here.
The owner was rude to many of the diners from our party eg. he was rude and impatient when asking my sister in law if she needed a high chair. The main meals took over 45 minutes to arrive which was unacceptable. We deliberately had an early reservation because there were four children in the party. At one point I even asked if the pastas for the kids could come out first. The restaurant was not busy when we arrived. When I checked about the meals I was first told it wd be 6 minutes, the second time the owner rudely ignored/dismissed my question. The meals didn’t come for at least another 15 minutes. There was absolutely no acknowledgement about the extremely slow dinner service when the meals finally arrived.
The steak related meals were poorly seasoned and really lacked flavour, family members struggled to eat it. My husband took much of his steak home bc he didn’t want to waste it given the price he paid. The kids spaghettoni which I tried at the end of my meal was undercooked and hard, not al dente. The duck pasta was passable though w barely any duck and just drowning in sauce. We liked the bread w the beetroot butter and the burger was enjoyed.
Our female server was friendly and helpful but when things started going sideways she became inaccessable.
I used to work as a waiter in a variety of restaurants and was sadly disappointed by the lack of friendly hospitality by the owner, the extremely slow dinner service, and the mediocre food despite rave reviews.
Excellent food and drink in a casual atmosphere. Will definitely be coming back.
The food was good, not great. $21 for a burger and fries needs to be much better than it was.
It was good but slightly overpriced for what it was. Service was friendly but missed a few things like asking us if we wanted dessert. We had to get up and finally ask and were told the kitchen was closed and nothing was available.
I was really disappointed in the the drinks. $7 for a virgin Cesar, I would have expected horseradish and some flavor, but it was just Motts Clamato juice with some stuff on the rim. Also, the burger was very greasy. I was surprised it had an egg on it as well, NOT what I was expecting. The duck pasta was also very greasy.
Also, NO disabled access which blows my mind this day and age and for the prices they are charging. My friend with a stroller couldn't make it in.
Lovely atmosphere, friendly staff and delicious food
Met friends for brunch. There were 3 of us and we were seated at a table for 2, but that was the only disappointing thing.
Food was great. Service was great.
Would go back.
Super interesting menu. Everything was delicious. Service was great.
Our 30 somethings find it hard to get us all together due to busy schedules, so the fact that we could reserve a table for a Sunday brunch here was a huge help to our scheduling issues. The coffee was flowing and the food was deliciously different! A good time was had by all.
The noise level was deafening when we entered so we were very relieved to be seated in the adjoining room by the window. And this worked for us – closer to the open kitchen in this small second room would have been too noisy and chaotic.
We knew the brunch menu was very limited but had anticipated a few more offerings including a frittata. The duck eggs "benny" were a bit of a shock. Regretfully, we failed to ask about chicken egg options. The eggs benny came with a choice of kale or a combo of salmon and bacon. Both versions featured a griddled biscuit – not the world's best idea – dense and greasy. The hollandaise, presumably also duck egg had a forgettable personality of its own. The accompanying salad was unremarkable. The restaurant was so jammed-packed we had to leave the table to find a server for water refills and the cheque.
Overall good experience with the food and service. The only drawback was when the guy brought my friend back her $15 change, he took $5 back. Probably as a gratuity, but he took it WITHOUT EVEN ASKING (this guy wasn’t our server). My friend said she was planning to leave the $10 as a tip to our gracious and warm waitress, but since he did that she changed her mind.
It was great- just felt a bit rushed since we booked brunch a month ago and were in and out in an hour and 15. Maybe not the best time to try and catch up with friends but nonetheless delicious food and ambience as always. Will continue to recommend and go back!
The chef was so friendly, she came out and recommended dishes, asked how our meal was and was entertaining other tables in the same way. It was a great atmosphere! Also the servers were very friendly and helpful as well.
Excellent local spot, great for foodies with a fresh menu each visit.
Staff is friendly and welcoming.
Bar sitting overlooking the kitchen was a great experience. Food is always awesome, as is the entire staff.
Food was amazing
Service was spot on
Comfy, cozy and relaxing space
Excellent food at good value. Great little neighbourhood spot.
I was recommended Farmhouse by a friend because I'm from out of town. I went for brunch and was seated at the bar, which was great! Being right at the bar our server was right in front of us and quickly got us our drinks. I had to get up to see the menu but my server walked me through the cutely named dishes. My wife is a vegetarian but really wanted to try the eggs benedict so the chef made her a special tomato and basil vegetarian option. Food was great, really enjoyed my quirky server. It was a little cold in the restaurant and the coffee wasn't great but over all an amazing brunch. Highly recommend and recommend sitting at the bar!
Very cold inside made worse every time the door opened.
A warm and cozy enough ambiance for a miserable March day. A little loud, though admittedly, we were there at the peak of Sunday brunch rush hour.
Both menu and food lives up to its appetizing reputation, give or take details such as average coffee and slightly overdone cheese biscuits (which serve as the inspired base for delicious “trout benny” but did not even yield easily to a steak knife!).
Friendly service, but rather slow, though I did hear something about a faulty oven...
Would definitely go back to sample some of the other very tempting items on the menu.
This place is great in theory, but the servers need to be more attentive. Food was great, once I got what I actually ordered.
Food and service is consistently great. I was slightly disappointed in the back room we were given for a party of 9 that included a toddler. The table was about a foot and a half taller than the high chair provided so she couldnt see any of us and didn’t have a surface to eat on even though I noted these details in the reservation. The other chairs around this table were very uncomfortable - seats from actual tractors. Perhaps something to keep in mind if you’re booking for a larger group.
Very enjoyable atmosphere and friendly staff. Burger was great.
We made our reservation 3 weeks in advance for 5 people. When we arrived, we were seated at a tiny table for 4 with an extra chair at the end. There was hardly room for our water glasses and coffees, plates sat on top of each other. We asked the staff to add another table or make some accommodation, but they just said no, without an apology or explanation. The food was good, but one order was wrong so had to be returned to the kitchen, so we could not enjoy our meals together. Last but not least, the odour in the washrooms was extremely off-putting! None of us will return.
Great brunch venue. Family friendly.Fresh farm to table seasonal fare. Great service. Definitely will return
Always enjoy it here.
The food tasted good but service was quite slow, which resulted in the dishes being somewhat cold when they were served
Great food choices with vegan options. No waste on menus everything on the chalkboard. Very sustainable! Love the feel here. Wonderful staff as well.
Visiting the neighbourhood, we made a same-day brunch reservation with @OpenTable successfully at the time we wanted. The atmosphere is EXACTLY like the Farmhouses I grew up in. The staff were professional, cheery, responsive and knew the menu inside and out. The restaurant was BUSY, the concierge handled patron flow like a master and our server capably responded to several tables with ease.
The FOOD was insane. Now, I was VERY hungry. I wanted to order one of everything. I had the burger (their specialty) on a lettuce bun with side salad. Hubs had the pancakes with side bacon. We ordered the made daily bread pudding with an extra side of bacon for dessert. All in, I’d eat here daily if my waistline would allow. I loved that we could see right into the kitchen, nestled in the heart of the restaurant - the chefs and servers bantered and prepared each dish with a massive amount of attention before sending them out.
Only draw back would be accessibility. The washrooms are down a steep staircase, however accurate of most farms I knew! Will be back.
This was our first visit. We all loved the ambiance - the fantastic wooden floors, the old photos, the license plates on the floor near the bar. Our server was lovely and friendly. We were there for brunch. The only downside was the menu is fairly limited. That said, we all enjoyed what we ordered.
The best burger in the city, bar none and extremely good staff!
The food here was surprisingly AMAZING!! I loved the VEGAN HARVEST dish, so tasty and filling and my husband LOVED the BURGER. He couldn't stop raving about the addition of the pork belly bacon to the burger and also loved the fries and draft beer. He claims this burger to possibly be one of the BEST!
We initially came in for shuck-a-buck oysters. The oysters were 'ok.' But the rest of the food and service was on point!
Service staff was prompt and knowledgeable. Great vibe and awesome food. Definitely going back!
The four of us all enjoyed our meals. The waitress was very responsive and pleasant. Interpreting restaurant.
Great service and a really comfortable environment. Friendly staff and they take reservations for brunch. What more could you ask for ?
Amazing food and service. The vibe is very chill and relaxing.
Food is always excellent. Love the vegan options. Great local beer and wine. Helpful and friendly servers.
Lovely place for foodies. I am always very happy for their roasted vegetables, and my meat-eating friends have a blast. They need someone to help them with desserts, though.
