A word from Auberge du Pommier
An exquisite French restaurant constructed around the rustic vestiges of two 1860's woodcutter's cottages. Cozy wood burning fireplaces in winter and lush garden terraces in summer. Inspired modern French cuisine, seasonal tasting menus lunch and dinner, and a 500 label wine selection has something for every palate. One of Toronto's Top 10 Restaurants. "The service at Auberge du Pommier is silken smooth and deliciously attentive; the ambiance is luxe; and the food is very good French technique using impeccable ingredients." Joanne Kates, The Globe and Mail.

    Real restaurant. No tv screens, what a delight. Good food, winelist and service. The kitchen can be a bit more flexible. We either all had to take the menu or all a la carte. And not all at our table wanted the menu, so we all ended up going a la carte. Because the kitchen could not handle the request. Do not expect that from a real restaurant.

    My friend ordered the swordfish. It's not a good sign when 3/4 of the plate was empty for an entree, especially considering the price. Drizzling one line of sauce over the empty plate does not help. We also order the lobster appetizer. There were 3 piece of lobster, about half the size of my thumb!!!! The rest of the plate had 3 small pieces of watermelon and cheese. It's more like an amuse bouche at an entree price.

    It was my husbands birthday and we always go here for special occasions and the service and food have been outstanding ..not the experience to be found on this Saturday..we had a reservation for 9pm,, got there at 845 and were made to wait till 915..when I checked on my table at 905 I was told it's not quite 9 yet making me feel like I was lying ..not quite the answer I was expecting ..on asking the second time we were offered a glass of champagne to make up..service was slow ...food average ..my cake for the dessert felt stale ..even though it was called angel cake and I was expecting a light sponge cake ..our waiter pretty much demanded a cash tip as we were using a gift voucher and a percentage would have gotten him a lower tip..

    Overall, Auberge du Pommier offers a good selection of dishes that are both well prepared and interestingly presented. The Saturday evening crowd made it difficult for the service staff to be attentive enough to suit my tastes, with long pauses between their visits to enquire whether they could do anything to serve my wife and I. However, their pleasant demeanor helped to diffuse some of the discontent. In spite of the high marks I’d give them for ambience and the quality of the food, the service level was mediocre at best, and the noise level was especially frustrating, with us being seated next to a large round table of raucous diners, most of whom didn’t seem to appreciate the fact they were eating in a quality restaurant.

    Came here for my 1st anniversary, had a great experience the last three times I was here and did not disappoint. Tried the set menu, Menu Gourmund and the appetizer blew us away, granted that made us a little more judgmental about the other courses but oh well. Staff was fantastic, rhymed off a few puns with one of the servers and our waiter was fantastic.

    The menu is constantly changing so there are new set of delights on each visit. The two starters were perogies and avocado/tomato. The perogies came with spinach and mushrooms. Both were excellent. Interestingly, the staff mentioned that the perogies are made in the kitchen by a women from her family recipe. Very authentic and tasty. Mains were baked salmon and grilled Nova Scotia swordfish. I had never heard of swordfish from Nova Scotia. Both dishes were amazing. The sommelier made a good wine recommendation. Service was quite good. I think it was a touch below their normal outstanding since the restaurant was so busy.

    My dinner companion and I loved the whole experience. We had the duck and suckling pork entree's which were perfect portions and had amazing accompaniments. The appetizers were so creative not to mention delicious, my soup au Pistou was a work of art. I love desserts and this is likely the best one I have ever had. The lemon soufflé was ridiculous! The wine recommendation was perfect. Our waiter and all the staff were professional but able to show humour, attentive without being intrusive. The space was very comfortable. There was a group in our section and we noticed they recieved the same attention to detail. Have been wanting to come here for years, very happy we finally did!

    We're from out of town and did a lot of research before deciding on Auberge du Pommier for a special dining experience. It is a little out of town, but worth the trip. The food was great. The chef created meals as fine as any in Paris or New York, in fact, as good as anywhere. We just returned from a extended around the word journey and we had no food better. The restaurants ambiance is comfortable and sophisticated. The service was even but needs a little refinement to be at the level of the food.

    I've been to ADP a few times. The food for the area is stellar. However, having access to other dining experiences in Toronto, especially to other O&B establishments, I think the price of what you're paying for is a little off. Everything was good, but there was something lacking for the value. I had an excellent fish appetizer, and main, and a wonderful dessert. The Hamachi was excellent - love the fusion. The sesame chocolate dessert was really enjoyable. Including a white wine pairing, which was all enjoyable. But, not "outsanding". Something more bold needs to happen here.

    My fiance and I went here for a celebration of our anniversary. The atmosphere was great and the staff were awesome. On top of that the food was very tasty. Our only major issues was the lengthy periods of time we had to wait for our server between courses. Took quite a while. Also I think the food might be a bit overpriced. All in all a good time though.

    We both chose the Menu a Potage, which apparently was vegetarian, but even though I am a meatlover, I wouldn't have noticed. Great spicing, great presentation. Our server was very professional. But why -- when the resto was less than half full -- did it take so long to produce our dinner?

    We went there to celebrate my birthday. The food was out-of-this-world and the service was excellent. I liked the way they had server rotating around throughout the evening for 3 different kinds of warm bread. The beef tartar I ordered was a good portion that filled me up 50%. It was much bigger than I anticipated. All in all, I will strongly recommend this place to my friends and family.
