Truly delicious food (I have been for brunch and dinner), a lovely staff, and a warm environment. A great chance to try a range of ciders, which is so rare in Toronto, with a service staff that was really warm and knowledgeable.

We had an amazing dinner on Saturday night! The staff were very friendly and knowledgeable, and took the time to double check with the kitchen several times to make sure I found something I could eat (celiac & lactose intolerant), with great success! There are loads of gluten free options on their menu, and the prices are really reasonable...especially with so many cider options to pair with!
Their gf buttermilk fried chicken is to die for, I'm going to have dreams about it.

Absolutely great little place with tons of character! If you’re looking for a beautiful, intimate, yet approachable place to eat, this is great. It’s not pretentious and you will feel so welcome here. We even had a vegetarian with us and the kitchen was not only able to make a meat main vegetarian, but also split it up for the table to share! They go over and above. We will be back!

Server was attentive & let us know about the special of the day, which was a very delicious French toast that I ended up ordering. Extensive cider list, which I’m sure a true cider affectionate will enjoy immensely. They were also accommodating, a friend bailed last minute and they were able to sit us at a different (smaller) table.

A friend introduced me to Her Father's Cider earlier this year, and it has since become my new favorite Toronto restaurant! Everything about it is wonderful- the atmosphere, the food, the service. I highly recommend ordering the Brussel sprouts and fried chicken- both incredibly delicious. I recently went to HFC for my birthday and they sent our table a free cider tasting for a toast and gave me free merch! Cannot recommend checking this place out enough!!

Amazing service and food and cider (obviously!) - just a really passionate and knowledgeable team and my friend (it was her birthday) received a cute little mug as well as some candles in our desserts! Love this place so much!

We went for Valentine’s Day and it was so cute. We were in the back room and it was quiet enough for a conversation. The service was great! You could tell they really wanted to make sure we were okay and having a good time. The cider was also great! I had the risotto and my partner had the rib eye and they were both really yummy. Definitely recommend.

Had enjoyed our first date there a few years ago, but hadn't been back and really enjoyed the Valentine's Day dinner prix fixe. Was so much food we had to take some home with us - including the dessert (which kept the night going in a perfect way when we got home!)

Very beautiful place, wonderful staff and amazing food. Keep in mind - portions are not very big but they are very delicious. Also, I found that the prices are a bit high, but you pay for very good quality. For two people we payed 100$ (including tips). The cider is something I have to go back for (and I am not a cider fan). I really recommend this place and will go back soon.

We have dined at this restaurant many times. Larger groups (10+) as well as two persons. The selection of cider is outstanding. The staff have always been very knowledgable about the drinks as well as the food being offered. The selection of rotating ciders is a big part of why we come to Her Father's Cider Bar. We highly recommend this restaurant.

What a fun place to drink and eat! So many ciders to sample, on draft or in bottles of various sizes. We got to try things we had never heard of before, and the food was incredible. Highly recommend the braised short rib dish, it really hit the spot on a cold evening.

All the tables were booked when we arrived, and once you experience the unbelievably great food, attentive service and drink we understand why. One of the best meals I've had in a long time - perfect presentation and taste. Bartender and waiters were awesome helping us navigate through the huge selection of ciders. Coming back here for sure.

We are so grateful to call Her Father’s our neighbourhood spot. There’s nothing else like it in the city. The food is exciting and changing with the seasons, and the cider selection is unparalleled. They go the extra mile during special occasions without us even expecting it. We love it here!
