The food was wonderful. Even my non-vegetarian sister loved the veg options (although the fried chicken was her favourite). We enjoyed the massive apple cider menu and the cider flights. Great place to hang with family and friends.

The patio was lovely! Perfect for spending a nice summers night with friends and sipping cider! The cider selection and flights is a great deal and very delicious. Our waiter was attentive and very nice, as was the general manager. The downfall was the food. We ordered a few appetizers and portions are very small and the descriptions are a little misleading. The "veggie fries" are not crispy or plentiful as you'd expect when you order "fries". It was 8-10 pieces of roasted root vegetables with a dip. It was actually quite tasty, but not what I expected. 3 people were extremely disappointed when they ordered the "grilled cheese", which was more like a small portion of crostinis (a single slice of bread broken into little pieces with some cheese on it). They felt it was not worth the 12$ and barely helped their hunger. All in all it was a nice night and I'd recommend going if you are a cider lover. However, I wouldn't go without eating first!

Really stellar service with a lovely atmosphere. The food was overall really good, though a couple inconsistencies (one person's glazed roasted vegetables were very undercooked and seemed more boiled than roasted and weren't glazed, one piece of my fried chicken had been over-fried/was burned). But the service was very high quality and overall I was very pleased with the experience.

We celebrated my husband’s birthday with friends. The patio is lovely. The service was friendly and very attentive. I gave the food 5 stars but the food is probably closer to 4 or 4.5 but the cider menu is outstanding - it exceeded expectations and I love searching out artesanal ciders. Stand out favourites on the food menu were the taro chips and salsa verde, the fried chicken and the cabbage rolls.

Our server was so lovely! Food was mostly fantastic with a few slight misses. Highly recommend the watermelon salad, pakoras, and the taro chips.

Did not appreciate being asked to leave 2 minutes after paying our bill. If we had ordered more drinks/food the people waiting would have been seated elsewhere but because we had already paid the waiter asked us to leave to give the table to someone else. Would have appreciated giving us a few more minutes to finish our drinks and gather our personal items.

I went with a group of 20+ people for dinner to Her Father's Cider and was thoroughly impressed with the high level of service from booking the restaurant all the way until settling the bill. Communication with the restaurant was prompt and always in a friendly and professional manner. We had a few changes in the days leading up to the dinner which staff at Her Father's Cider took in stride and readily accommodated. Restaurant had a pleasing aesthetic and we had more than enough room to move around in the private dining area that had been set up. The food was fantastic. We had the opportunity to have a few dishes which all the guests enjoyed immensely. Portions were super generous as well. Highly recommend having the "flight" and sampling a few ciders because it's really hard to settle with just one.

This place is fantastic; completely amazing. We used the private room for our special event and this place made everything possible from food, to service, decor, drinks, and atmosphere. The servers took care of us, food came fast and delicious and the night was forever memorable. I'm glad I chose this place and would HIGHLY recommend it for the same occasion or even casual dining.

Very accommodating for my reservation for a large group. Service was quite good (I would give 4.5 stars if I could) but could have come around a bit more frequently for drinks. Although the food tasted delicious, and allergies were well accommodated, I did have quite a number of guests inform me that the portion size of their meal was too small and that they left hungry. Overall, a great experience.

Three of my girlfriends and I came here for a delicious meal and ciders. The cider flights were wonderful and our waiter was so knowledgeable and fun while talking us through the different choices. We all shared fresh-baked pretzels for appetizers and the cider cheese sauce was unreal tasty — a must-have pairing for the cider flights. We literally scraped the cheese off the plates. The cider selection is obviously fantastic and was the main event of the evening. So many fun things to try for all, whether you are a seasoned cider drinker or less experienced. We all also had dinner. All were absolutely wonderful except for the chickpea farro salad, which my good friend (a vegetarian) said was "average," hence the 4 stars for food out of 5. I had the lamb sliders, one friend had the fried chicken, and the other friend had the gnocchi. All were great. Lastly, we cannot say enough about our waiter. He was genuinely kind and so helpful, and really took the time to listen to our normal cider habits to make great recommendations. We really enjoyed conversing with him about Toronto must-sees and of course our drink choices. Long story short, would highly recommend the cider flights for a fun night out with friends, with tasty food to boot. We loved our experience. Thanks, Her Father's!
