The cider selection and flight tastings are a delight and the wait staff are knowledgable and helpful; but the real surprise is how good the food is - a pleasure all around.

Sat at the bar, did some cider tasting and ate apps. Bartender did a great job explaining the ciders and was attentive to our needs, but not in an overbearing way where we could still have a private conversation. Definitely will return when back in Toronto

It was wonderful as usual, with a new menu offering lots of seasonal vegetables and fruits. Service was perfect. Patio is so great! And they offer a huge selection of superb ciders. Her Father’s is where I’ve taken all my summer guests, and everyone has loved the food they ate.

A really nice surprise in the Harbord area of the Annex - very delicious food, including small plates (shrimp tacos, short ribs, roasted Brussels sprouts, lamb sliders - all so good). Ciders were really thirst-quenching and diverse with hundreds of local and international varieties.

The food was great and the staff were very friendly and knowledgeable.
Unfortunately it took about a 1/2 hour for someone to take our drink and/or food order, however that was in part due to the fact that we requested a spot on the patio and knowingly waited in order for the restaurant to accommodate. That being said, the food came fairly quickly and everything was delicious, especially the fun cider options!

Every. Thing. Was. Amazing. I cannot stress this enough - go eat here!!! I'm SO glad we took an Uber from our stay near Scotiabank Area to get here. It was about 10 minutes and a $10 ride. I wasn't impressed with the options in downtown Toronto, so I we expanded our search and hit the jackpot. The ambiance is adorable, a little boho mixed with modern. An awesome patio with beautiful fresh flowers, an incredibly attentive staff, AMAZING food, situated in an adorable neighborhood. We actually didn't even order main dishes - we just ordered two rounds of what they call "Snacks". These are not snacks - they are definitely passable as dinners. You can taste every single thing they put into their recipes. When it says chipotle-maple-orange - you taste every single thing. We even bought their homemade hot sauce and apple fennel ketchup. And the cider? The cider!!! UGH. I can't even. I want to move to Toronto just to eat at this place.

The food was a bit pretentious - ambitious but not very well thought out so flavours conflicted rather than complemented. It would have been nice to have some bread.

This is such a great choice for the Bloor / Bathurst area. TONS of gluten free options, and everything we had was yummy: the gf fried chicken was exceptional. Menu had a very seasonal focus as well (with things like a spring risotto). The focus is on cider, but the wines by the glass are great choices too. Really nice patio at the side that has some good shade. A top choice!

This restaurant has a nice cozy patio section which we gladly chose to sit in since it was a beautiful evening. We shared a flight of 3 ciders and were impressed with how delicious and different each of them were. We ordered three appetizers, two mains and shared a dessert. The lamb sliders and the brussel sprouts were to die for and I would definitely recommend you try it. We also ordered the burger as one of our mains but I have to say the lamb sliders were better in terms of juiciness and flavour! The cheesecake dessert was sooo good, although we shared I would definitely say it's more of a one person dish. The service was great, our water was always refilled as soon as it was low and the food dishes came out in a timely manner. From start to finish we were there for an hour which is great considering how many dishes we ordered. Would definitely return!

Was a great experience. Staff were professional and friendly. Plenty of cider options - boast worthy. The food was delicious and flavourful. Love cider flights. The only slight was we left hungry - even though we ordered more - bigger portions if possible please.

Her Father's Cider Bar + Kitchen is a great gastropub, with a very homey feel and comfort food that melds traditional dishes with something extra, making them so delicious! My partner and I had a great time, and the drinks are really great too, with lots of variety. The staff is attentive and nice. They changed our seats to a more comfortable spot, even without us asking. Overall a great experience, and would highly recommend to others.

I asked a lot of picky questions & our server did a great job answering.
I ordered scrambled eggs with cheese, which was not quite on the menu & it was delicious. My kids even liked it as it was so rich & fluffy.
The in-house tomato sauce was amazing.
The whole family enjoyed the food. We don’t often revisit places but we will be back for the excellent food.
