The original jewel in the Oliver & Bonacini crown and a North Toronto icon, Auberge du Pommier has been serving guests since 1987. Constructed around the rustic vestiges of two 1860’s woodcutters’ cottages, Auberge du Pommier combines country charm with contemporary sophistication and style. Featuring wood burning fireplaces in winter and lush, floral terraces in summer, it is a welcoming, refined retreat from the city. Led by Executive Chef John Horne , Auberge du Pommier is defining contemporary French cooking in Canada. The cuisine honours both the refined techniques and rustic styles of classic French fare, with an innovative North American accent. Auberge du Pommier is routinely ranked among Joanne Kates’ Top 100 Restaurants, and was awarded a five-star rating by Toronto Life magazine in 2016.

We choose Auberge as a perfect place to celebrate a milestone anniversary. We also choose the tasting menu which was paired with wine. For us, it was a perfect way to sample the full menu and enjoy the experience of the culinary team. It was well done, with great service and insight to each item on the menu. We liked it so much, we will happily return for any special occasion, to be treated well and dive deeper into the menu.

If you’ve never been, you have to enjoy the experience at least once. Food, staff, ambiance all add up to a wonderful dining experience.

Our table wast at an area near kitchen, high traffic of staff and waiters going in and out. Sort of distrupts mood/ambience. Men's urinals, auto flush would be nice.

I was literally disappointed on my recent visit. The lady at the front had attitude issues and was not friendly to kids at all. When my son asked her a simple question she was reluctant to answer and brushed him off. I’ve never experienced such unfriendly staff at a French restaurant before. I felt like I wasn’t welcome to the restaurant at all. The waiter was okay but it was way more noisier at lunch compared to dinner. I could barely hear my friend talk who was sitting next to me.

Always a reliable choice for first-rate service and impeccable food. If weather permits, the patio tables are the best in the house.

The service is excellent! The ribeye steak is very tough and no taste, bad quality meat. The soufflé is the best.

We attended for a birthday celebration and enjoyed both the food and the service. When staff ask how would you like that cooked, we always say "the way the chef thinks it should be cooked". You can’t go wrong with that here.

Great food, nice presentation, good separation between tables and the staff seem to love their jobs. I would like a broader menu.

It has a very nice décor.

We would return.

Auberge du Pommier didn't disappoint. Our service was impeccable — just the right amount of attentiveness without being intrusive. I had the Boullibase as my main, and it was bursting with flavor. My wife had the Cote du boeuf, and while the accompaniments (cheese croquette, spiced apple) were good, it was the beef that was the star of the show — very flavourful as well as tender. The cheese selection was nice, but the portions seemed a bit small. I'd definitely return.

Limited but flawlessly executed menu. Lovely refined atmosphere with serene outdoor patio. Hard to find these days. Servers need to learn the proper use of the term ‘we’ (how are we enjoying our appetizers?) I tolerate that better in a more casual environment but really, in an upscale French restaurant that gets it right in so many other ways??

Decided to try the tasting menu. It was excellent. My only regret is we didn’t go for the wine pairing option.

This place was so amazing! If you want a world class, well balanced dish, this is the place to come. The flavors will tantalize your palate. The Homard-butter-poached lobster, confit butternut squash, crispy ginger, braised leeks, tarragon & tomalley jus, was heaven in my mouth. Even my twelve year old daughter couldn’t get enough of it. The Canard-Chambord-lacquered duck breast, sumac pain perdu, dandelion, parsley root, tarragon, black raspberry jus was the perfect balance of sweet and savory. Last, but not least, the soufflé, done to perfection!

This is a must for anyone wanting a first class food experience here in Canada! Worth every penny!

It’s difficult not to use the adjective ‘BEST’ to describe anything about this restaurant. The best business lunch and the most romantic dinner spot in Toronto! Consistently fabulous food with the best service, and best ambience. Their awesome soups are always a highlight of any meal, as are their frites. Very elegant dining. Can’t wait to return.

Everything about Auberge du Pommier is elegant. The ding rooms in this historic venue are lovely, the service is friendly but refined and the food is always beautifully presented and delicious. Our recent visit was on the last day of Summerilicious. Still the team at Auberge managed to uphold these standards. Our party of four chose different dishes from the abbreviated menu and we were all delighted with our selections. The sommelier recommended a perfect bubbly to celebrate our special occasion. And desserts were divine. As a regular customer, I don’t generally look forward to the crowds or menu restrictions that typically accompany Summerlicious but our experience at Auberge du Pommier was perfect.

Food and service was average. Our server mixed our order twice. The Summerlicious soup was oversalted and I could not eat it at all. The wine that we ordered was not available and they offered us a more expensive version... We came to celebrate my partner's birthday and were very disappointed.
