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.

    Auberge consistently ranks among the top restaurants in Toronto and is deserved of every accolade. I've dined here many times and it never fails to deliver on every count. Perfectly executed and creative food. Impeccable service, beautiful and cozy ambiance. I could go on and on with the praise but suffice it to say, that Auberge is always at the top of list of my recommended restaurants for a special occasion dining experience.

    The Auberge du Pommier is a exquisite restaurant, a hidden gem if you will, located in the York Mills area. The service was quick, friendly, accurate and gave many good suggestions from the wine to the dessert. The selection of wine was astounding, with different types for all tastes and price ranges. There are few options on the menu but that is forgiven by the quality of the food. Jazz music was played in the background and the lights where dimmed to set a romantic mood. I will definitely return here for special occasion. I would rate the Auberge du Pommier a 5/5

    It's no wonder that Auberge has been around for so long. Not only is the atmosphere welcoming and cozy, the food is always superb. Been here numerous times and never disappointed. Service is excellent and the menu changes with fresh, seasonal ingredients so there is always something new to try. Would highly recommend Auberge to anyone interested in fine dining. Comparable to any 4-5 star dining in New York, Las Vegas, etc. This is truly a gem in Toronto!

    My wife and I were once again blown away with Amazing Food and Service, as we celebrated our wedding anniversary. The attention to detail on each course we ordered was well thought out and superbly put together. This was only matched by the outstanding friendly service we received by our server Brianne and GM/Sommelier, Evan Baulch. Congratulations to the Chef and service team for creating a memorable experience for us. P.S. thank you for all the little extra's.

    My husband and I celebrated my birthday by treating ourselves to the 'menu gourmand' at Auberge. The food was delicious and service outstanding. Our server was very friendly and allowed us to make substitutions based on our dietary preferences. We did have to wait for quite a while between some courses but it was well worth it. I'd highly recommend Auberge for a special occasion meal in a romantic yet still relaxed atmosphere.

    Came here for a special occasion of a family birthday. Impressed with the service right from the reservation confirmation phone call the afternoon before our dinner. At dinner every person remarked on how helpful all the staff were at assisting our choices, not just our server. Oyster stew appetizer superb, although the broth portion could have been hotter (added to the oysters at table.) Everyone enjoyed the mains, Arctic char, B.C. Sturgeon and the pork. Portions not overly large, but that is ok as a lot of restaurants serve overly large portions with enough food for three people. Loved the cheesecake as it was not the anticipated slice of some half frozen concoction. It was carefully made, artfully presented and totally delicious.

    Negatives: We waited 20 minutes for our table despite a reservation (did provide complimentary champagne) Very expensive which is fine but don't allow patrons in with a sloppy T-shirt! Wait staff were slightly overwhelmed and the team was clearly understaffed. Positives: Amazing food-kudos to the chef! Excellent ambiance Extremely comfortable chairs Vast wine selection When back in Toronto we'd try Auberge again but management needs to be more present to catch these negatives. We're talking about a very expensive place, and not a Harvey's here. Thank you.

    We really enjoyed our time at dinner, as it was the celebration of a 90th birthday. Their attention to detail was great, except for one small detail. We asked for bread twice, as none of us wanted to drink alcohol on an empty stomach. Except for this detail, everything was really nice. A definite favourite restaurant!

    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.

    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.
