Tips from the Net @ The Farmer’s Apprentice

This place have very fresh ingredients. It is meant to have fresh vegetables right on to the table. The food is great but it is a bit on the pricy side. You can find the restaurant being expensive. There are not that many tables so it would be better to make a reservation before going. GooglePlace - March 2018

Enjoyed the Omnivore 6 course tasting menu with local wine pairings. Excellent service and great room. Love the concept and use of local BC farms! GooglePlace - March 2018

This restaurant is part of the farm to table movement, serving different dishes depending on what is in season. Only set menus are available---a regular six course menu, a vegetarian menu, and a smaller four course menu. The dishes were inventive, with a rustic flavour, perhaps because it was February when I visited. Every dish was quite small in portion, however. My favourite dishes of the evening were the pork tenderloin and, interestingly, barley cooked in pressure cooker. Our server was very attentive. Great atmosphere and experience.

It's a small restaurant but decor is lovely. Service was great. Helpful but not intrusive. Appetizers were simple but good as it showcases fresh vegetables and fruits. Not a lot of options for vegetarians and no option for vegans. I had Pappardelle pasta with mushroom and kale. The texture of pasta was perfect, and I personally loved the meal, but I like my food REALLY salty, and it tasted like the way I make my pasta. So some people may find it too salty? A bit more plant-based dishes would be nice. Also, I think there is always just one dessert, and I happened not to like the dessert the day I went. It'd be nice if there were a bit more options.

Had the omnivore chef's menu. Service was very good and very friendly, but the food was underwhelming... Flavours were inconsistent between dishes. Some were too salty, others were too bland... The flavour profile just didn't seem to flow throughout the meal, which is something I usually expect when I order a set menu. Some dishes also had textural issues, lacking crunch or something more substantive to offset the a plethora of softness/purées. It wasn't bad, but I've had much better at the same price point. On the positive side, you could tell the ingredients were all fresh, locally sourced, and trying to be different (though different for the sake of difference isn't always a good thing). Overall, if someone invited me to go again I would, but if I'm doing the planning, I'd likely try something else... GooglePlace - December 2017
