    As a location for lunch/ brunch on a Sunday after church it was great, the welcoming dining room was like being at home! The group fitted well into the area assigned, which was close to the entrance because we have one handicapped person in the group. The noise level was low enough that all six of us could hear and be heard. The food was good, the French bread excellent, and the dressing on the salad light and bright. The only flaw was the service, after waiting 15 minutes our server finally arrived and was then quite attentive. Overall a very pleasant experience. We would definitely return, but would look for more prompt service next time.

    My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful lunch here last Saturday. We had received high praise from friends about the restaurant for some time, so we were looking forward to visiting, and we were delighted with what awaited us. This is a lovely restaurant with a chef who really knows what he's doing to provide only the very best in French dining. Beautiful table setting and outstanding meal. Not to be missed!

    We six arrived early from far away, were accommodated right away, and seated in our own corner, visible but not crowded in. The restaurant was a bright and interesting in a casual french motif. We had appetizers which were served hot and delicious, followed by salad or soup and then by the entree. We chose a bold red wine from Argentina to have with the meal, followed by dessert and coffee. We all had something different, and were all thoroughly enjoying the flavors. I shared a salad, had an amazing entree of duck with fig stuffing, and shared a wonderful chocolate dessert.

    Excellent menu - Excellent wine list - Well known Gordonsville area Fine Dining French Cuisine Restaurant. Very Crowded - Definitely make reservations, especially on weekends. Appetizers & Dinner entrees perfectly prepared & marvelous taste. Dessert had a slight refrigerated storage aftertaste, will not order again. Inconsistent service due to Saturday evening crowds. Overall Very Good dining experience.

    A little gem in a tiny little town of Gordonsville, VA! The french cuisine was very small portions (as typical of french) with higher prices but the food is good. There is nothing like it for miles. The veal was very tender and flavorful.

    One of the top three restaurants in the Charlottesville area. In the center of Gordonsville about 15 minutes north of exit 136 of I-64 on rural route 15 Pomme is an excellent classic country French style restaurant with excellent food, service, and ambiance. Chef owned the staff is very accommodating. One of my favorite restaurants, I have eaten at Pomme about a dozen times and have never been disappointed.

    My friend and I had an outstanding brunch at Restaurant Pomme in Gordonsville, VA. We each ordered the eggs benedict and split an order of french toast. The eggs benedict plate included a delicious medley of caramelized vegetables, and hash brown potato cake made with cheese and topped with watercress. The french toast was equally good, topped with huge, perfect raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, whipped cream, and an orchid decoration! The service was very attentive but we did not feel rushed. What a treat on a beautiful Sunday afternoon!

    After making a 6:45pm res on-line, we arrived and were quickly seated. Very nice atmosphere, with exception of the golf pics, although that is a personal taste. I had the Escargot, Lamb and Crème Brule. My husband had the Cheese/Salad, Duck and shared the Crème Brule. The appetizers, my Escargot with wild mushrooms and a delicious cream sauce was the best ever. My Lamb, with a mustard rub ordered medium rare with delicious seasonal veggies was superlative. The only detraction was the au gratin risotto, or what ever it was, it was cold on the plate when served. Still somewhat tasty, but cold. Dan really enjoyed his salad with 5 different cheeses. His duck and veggies were very good, but his risotto same. The CB was set/great! Overall Yummy

    This is a lovely French restaurant that reflects the "essence" of France, from the menu to the wines to the atmosphere, but not the snootiness. Lobster bisque was superb. Beet salad was attractive and delicious. We sampled veal and fish, both prepared perfectly. Tarte tatin was declared scrumptious. Good coffee to round out the evening.

    Nice layout lots of room, wonderful wine list, good was above average and a find in Gordonville. We were rushed through our meal (it was a Thrusday night and only 4 table were seated), our waiter was VERY standoffish, and real seem to not care, barely came by our table, the only we waited was when the table needed to be cleared but desert and check came real fast. The food was good enough that we would try it again but it really put a damper on my wife birthday.

    Our dinner started with a very light but very tasty mousse; the other was a rare blend of baked avocado and Brie on a bed of frisée. My wife's lamb chops were perfectly prepared and grilled to perfection. The fish stew I had was extraordinary. The only challenge of the fish stew was its size. For the money the stew could have served two, but I couldn't stop until I was finished. The blend of a wide variety of fishes with a thick and savory broth were memorable. I have fish stew whenever I can, and found this stew to be the best in the region, including DC. In addition to the outstanding meal, the ambiance and service were outstanding. The wait staff is attentive and non intrusive. All elements contributed to a memorable dinner.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience at Pomme. As noted in numerous previous reviews, the food, atmosphere, and service were outstanding. Quite interesting menu, but we opted for one of the specials - monkfish with lobster sauce, which was beautifully presented with a potato/butternut squash puree and a unique green vegetable, tetragon. The combination was splendid and the wonderful taste is something we will remember for a long time. The head chef stopped by our table a couple of times and we greatly enjoyed talking about the food and the restaurant's history. We look forward to returning to Pomme in the future and to sharing the experience with other family members who enjoy first class dining.
