    We shared Peasant Cookery with an out-of-town guest. We enjoyed the baked brie appetizer special and our main courses. Felt like we stepped into a European restaurant. We appreciated the intimate setting as it quiet on a Tuesday evening.

    Hi! We love this place but this time we were seated at the door so every time customers came in we were hit with a cold blast of air. The food and wine though were fantastic!

    The ambience is nice but it’s high ceilings carry the noise. The food is good but I was expecting great, so I was disappointed. The wine by the glass prices are ridiculous- the bottle price is more reasonable.

    Peasant Cookery still delivers, time and again. Local food expertly crafted, in a space that lacks pretension (it doesn't need it). The servers are very helpful with their suggestions with food and wine. A little expensive, but you certainly get what you pay for. A good place to bring a date. All in all, a wonderful restaurant to spend your evening.

    We enjoyed the food - it was carefully prepared from flavourful ingredients, seemed fresh. Our waiter was friendly, helpful with questions, and attentive. The room was nicely appointed for the festive season, and a casually elegant setting for a special supper out. Really the food is the star, the kitchen really seems to put their heart into it, crafted (recipes and execution) with care.

    This restaurant is clearly not a great choice for a Saturday "Hey, let's go grab a bite!" but for a special or semi-special occasion, it is ideal. The food is always well-prepared, the service first class and the ambience pleasant. Highly recommended.

    First of all, my comments regarding allergies was not acknowledged, and while we indicated this was a birthday celebration, there was no mention of it. The food was ok, nothing very special. We had the MOROCCAN SPICED KING SALMON , which was quite dry (overcooked)and not very well seasoned, the TOURTIÈRE textures re was odd. I found the texture to resemble ground up meat…not what I expected, or what is traditional. However, the sauce was quite good. The HOUSE SAUSAGE MEATBALL PAPPARDELLE was enjoyed as was the AGED CHEDDAR GNOCCHI. The salads were ok, the SPINACH AND ROASTED BEET SALAD was uneventful, and the KALE & ROSEMARY ROASTED ROOT VEGETABLE SALAD was pretty good. Again, the attention to detail was missing. Our server was great, he was attentive and very pleasant. It’s a “let’s not go back” place for 3 of the four of us. I feel that for $270, for 4, with only 1 glass of wine and no other drinks was pretty pricey, and should have been more memorable. I felt as though it was kind of an “eh” meal. It filled our tummies, but not great.

    We had the Bacon and Brioche Brunch which was so good. Love the aioli and the overall combo, with potatoes. We also had the Saskatoon Stuffed French Toast and it was amazing. The berry jam was so good, wasn’t too sweet, and the french bread was so good. Ambiance, 10/10–very vintage, super classic feel. Will definitely hit this spot for brunch again.

    Loved everything about Peasant Cookery. Menu offered wide selection that made it hard to choose. I ordered the vegan mac & cheese, which was delicious -- and I'm not a vegan. Attentive, helpful waiter who brought our food promptly but never rushed us. The ambience is charming with the circular booths and large windows for taking in the urban scene outside. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience and will definitely return the next time we are in town.
