This was our first time at Her Father's. The ambience was lovely - not too fancy, but well put together. The cider and food was incredible! We had the pretzel and raclette appetizer, which tasted just like Europe. I had the duck special for my main and it was out of this world. Looking forward to coming back!

food was excellent (esp. the soup and the half chicken dinner), and the ciders themselves interesting and varied. Service was great. Only minor frustration was that the tables were a little too small and close together--likely fine for a drink, but hard to manage if you had more than one plate and a flight. overall though, a great addition to Harbord St. options

This place likely has it all. Amazing food prepared by obviously talented people, as well as incredible staff. The only draw back, and I hope you don't take this the wrong way, is the aroma of stinky cheese. We were unlucky enough to have to muster through the rank smell while trying to enjoy our dinner. Aside from this dead people smell, it's totally amazing here. Maybe one day they will realize how the dishes fair with the diners as a whole. I appreciate good quality food, and cheese too... But there's a time and place.

This is an awesome place to go to relax and take the time to enjoy the surroundings, the food and of course the incredible range of ciders on offer, either as a tasting or per bottle if that's your thing. It's a nice cosy place, where the music is in the background, not the centre of attention. Food ranges from finger food to full on meals. There is something for every type and taste - vegetarian or carnivore. There are suggested cider pairings or you can choose your own from ciders around the world or locally from Ontario or the rest of Canada. If the appetizers, entree and main aren't enough there is an amazing sticky toffee pudding that should never be taken off the menu. Rounding off the experience the staff are polite, helpful and knowledgeable about the ciders and food they have on offer. Both the food and cider tasting (12 options) are rotated on a regular basis, so there will always be something different to try when you return. Can't say enough good things about this little gem tucked away in Toronto. It's a great place to go all year round, and doubly so when their patio is open in the warmer weather

They always make me feel special and welcome. I love the variety of ciders and how they know so much about each one. The food is always savoury. For these and many other reasons is why I keep going back.

This is my third visit since HF opened. The first two times I brought family members for birthday celebrations. This most recent time was to celebrate the visit of an out-of-town friend. All were impressed. A very good time is always to be had at HF: the food is very tasty and interesting, and the ambience and service are both just right. I highly recommend getting a "flight" of three different ciders - HF has an extensive list of all kinds of intriguing ciders - to share with companions. I'll be back, with family and friends. Thanks.

loved the pretzel appetizer and steak. Not as impressed by the kale as it was bland.
