About Auberge du Pommier

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 and Chef de Cuisine Malcolm Campbell, 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.

great food, beautiful layout, lovely place for a quiet romantic evening, but slightly more expensive than restaurants of comparable quality ($500 for two --cocktail, glass of wine, app, entre, shared dessert).

This was our first anniversary dinner and we wanted to return to this wonderful restaurant as we had remembered it 20 years ago. We now live out of town and drove in for over a hour to have this special event. Service was excellent but the two dinners we had (two rib eye steaks and a mushroom side dish) we terrible. The mushroom dish was without good flavour (we left two thirds of it), the steaks were very red and not medium as we had asked, the steaks were stringy and with too much fat and again much was left on the table. As rib eyes are supposed to be very flavourful, and were not, we were extremely disappointed. We had earlier decided we would make this trip to Auberge an annual event on our anniversary but even with the maitre'd's mention of us coming back and they would make up for it (champagne and a dessert)....we don't need to risk it, there are hundreds of other fine dining establishments to go to, and we have been satisfied with by far most of them. Very disappointed:(

While the food was good on NYE, I felt very rushed to finish the NYE tasting menu. Was given the first 3 out 5 courses within the first 30 minutes. It wasn't the best experience especially because I know how fantastic Auberge du Pommier can be.

We've been dining at Auberge for over a decade and have done New Years Eve dinner at least 4 times before. This was the best tasting menu we've had, by far.

Our waiter provided really exemplary service for the entire evening. Not only was he personable but he was always there when needed. Again, as usual, the sommelier made fantastic recommendations. He certainly has a flair for matching wines to the foods ordered. We ordered a large array of appetizers and mains. Not a single one disappointed. The scallop appetizer was particularly good with an array of extras to compliment the scallops. The main of smoked sturgeon and linguine with sea urchin was outstanding. They really outdid themselves. Deserts were cheeses and seasonal souffles. The souffles were perfect.

One word: Perfect. Still my favorite after all these years...it's extremely hard to find a restaurant that is consistent (good) nowadays - I m talking about from appetizer to dessert. All as good.

I would recommend try it on non winterlicious menu though - it's not that menu is no good but the regular menu is simply the best.

Absolutely incredible!
A veritable immersion into a comfortable yet chic French eatery.
If the Guide Michelin awarded stars to Canadian restaurants, this one would have FIVE.
As for staff, I have never been on the receiving end of so many genuine smiles, helpful advice and impeccable service.
A sheer treasure to experience and behold.
À toute à l'heure!

This restaurant is one of the best. Service is excellent and attention to detail is above average. Never are plates removed without the entire party being finished. You are never rushed and courses are spaced out perfectly. There is a reason why this place has been around for 30 years. They know what they are doing. They also can accommodate for allergies at a moments notice and substitute without issue. Have been there multiple times and service is always consistent. As will all O & B venues you get what you pay for and this place is worth the extra $$.

Our experiences at the Auberge have varied from outstanding to mediocre and this most recent visit fell somewhere in the middle.

We were greeted warmly and shown to our table by attentive staff. For this pre-Christmas Brunch we both ordered French Onion Soup, one of us ordered Cornish Hen, while the other opted for Steelhead Trout. For desserts one of us chose the Cheese Plate and the other ordered the Pear Bavarois.

The soup is served en croute, so you need to break in through the little puff-pastry cap. Once inside you are treated to a rich, aromatic broth with an intense depth of flavour. Full marks to the kitchen for this delicious starter.

The mains were not so enjoyable for several reasons. The Cornish Hen was also served en croute, and our waiter did not mention this at the time we ordered. This of course meant that both courses included a great deal of crust, and we would have appreciated a 'heads-up' from our waiter BEFORE we ordered it.

The Steelhead Trout was cooked perfectly, served on a round of polenta that had a detectable flavour of Mace, but the dish fell down because the sauce used to cover the fish was EXTREMELY salty. We finished it (not wanting to waste food), and we did tell our waiter, but other diners (and the kitchen) should be aware of this. N.B. the sauce that accompanied the Cornish Hen was similarly over-salted. GO EASY ON THE SODIUM CHLORIDE!

The Cheese plate was a typical trio of soft-hard-bleu cheeses, and 2 tasty walnut scones. The Pear Bavarois was so-so, the cream filling was tasty, but the slices of raw pear garnish were hard and flavourless.

We were NOT asked if we wanted to finish with tea or coffee, which we really needed after the salty main courses.

The food was good but not out of the ordinary and the portions were very small, yet the price was very high in comparison. Also, with several different waiters attending our table, it made it difficult to establish a relation with any of them as it all seemed very hurried. We dined there on a weekend and the place was packed; perhaps a better experience would be had during less busy weekday evenings.

The four of us enjoyed our meal immensely ... the food was first class, the service superb.
When the food is presented, the initial thought was small portions, artfully presented. Eating (consuming? devouring? digging in?) unveiled a wonderful medley of taste and texture; extremely pleasing. At the end of the meals (salad, entrée and dessert), we were all comfortably (not overly) full and very pleased. The service was attentive but not intrusive - perfect!
Once again (not our first visit), first class!

For the past 30 years this has been our favourite Toronto restaurant, for both lunch and dinner. Consistently fabulous food and exceptional service within a lovely, quiet ambience. Never disappoints. Always enjoy their great soups, frites, cheese course, and depth of wine list, although for lunch this week we took our own special bottle of wine. Our server Krista looked after us exceedingly well. Will return soon.

This restaurant is phenomenal.
It is not cheap; however in terms of value you definitely get your money's worth.
If you've ever paid a premium to travel first class, stay in a 5 star hotel or to eat an unforgettable meal, then you'll it's worth doing so every now & then.
The food and service are in a class of their own.
Do yourself a favor and order the foie gras & creme brulee; you will not regret it.

Positives - Vension, Lamb, cooked perfectly. Deserts were beautiful.
Negatives - Cocktails very mediocre, Appetizers oddly over spiced, esp. scallops.
Decor was only so so. French restaurant, had a very grecian / roman feel. I was expecting slightly more cozy / cottage farm house feel. Seats were good, very bright restaurant, good for people watching, not very romantic.
Cost - Roughly appropriate for fine dining establishment.
Service - Was excellent.

Auberge du Pommier had decent food but nothing was spectacular for the price point. I am glad that we tried it and it was a nice atmosphere something more upscale in Toronto but I wouldn't necessarily return as there are other restaurants in downtown Toronto that I think have better food and are much more accessible.

We were a group of 7, who give this restaurant 7 thumbs down. It was a gong show, from inattentive service to food that had to be sent back and reheated, to treating the vegan and vegetarian in the group as after-thoughts in terms of flavour and satiating food. We spend over $800, and left bummed out.
