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.

Two of us order the Halibut and were a bit disappointed - one piece was dry and the other was okay. My two other children who ordered the Lamb were both satisfied, but found there was really nothing extraordinary about it. For the price, I think we've had better food at other restaurants in the city. We tried the restaurant for my children's birthdays, as it is very highly rated. I'm afraid there may be other options out there that fit our taste and budget.

I've been to a lot of fine dining restaurants in Toronto and have never received as exceptional service as we did at Auberge du Pommier! The food we knew was going to be outstanding; but the overall attention, warmth and personal touches of the servers (our server was Andrew & he was fantastic) added to the whole experience.
Will definitely be back!

Love this place! Had finished a meeting and dined alone - no issue. Staff and Sommelier a delight. The restaurant is expensive, but the food is very good! the vichysoisse is out of this world - creamy and tasty. Everything was excellent
just did not have room for dessert - a shame!

I have eaten at Auberge likely 6 or 7 times and last night’s experience did not meet the usual high standard of the restaurant. Our server went missing halfway through dinner somewhat awkwardly. Our 2 appetizers arrived lukewarm (foie and scallops). For a $28 dollar appetizer, we got one and a half scallops. No one asked us how the starters were. Our mains were somewhat better. The Poulet was delicious and the mushroom risotto was also good. Not sure it was $39 good. Cheese course and pavlova were tasty. Another server jumped in to attend to us but I have to say the service was spotty and not at all what we expect from an O and B establishment.

I came for summerlicious as I have not tried this restaurant before. It was not too crowded which is nice given the promotion going on.

I ordered the rabbit, chicken and cheese plate for dessert. For a non alcoholic beverage I had the cherry juice which was delicious.

I sat inside, but the outdoor seating looked very nice.

I would recommend coming back as my server was amazing. She was friendly and helped me take a few pictures before departing.

I parked underground and got it stamped by the restaurant, so I did not need to pay.

Appettizer menu - ok, a bit disappointed with its pressed rabbit & apricot as it is a bit on the dry end which I did not expect.
Main course - beef tenderloin is juicy and perfect. Cornish chicken’s sauce is a bit too salty, otherwise not bad.
Dessert - Good. The ingredients in each dessert compliment each other, satisfy taste buds.
Excellent ambience and service.

Our family was having a Summerlicious dinner there last week, and everything was going great until a fly flew onto my knife and made things seem pretty unfortunate. However, the server (his name was Deni but i believe his name may be spelled differently), insisted that this was not how the restaurant was run and decided to give me a glass of wine on the house! But it doesn't end there...

Shortly afterwards, ANOTHER FLY FLEW INTO MY WINE GLASS LOL. I wasn't upset (I don't really drink wine), but it was just funny and unfortunate that it would happen to me again! I felt bad telling Deni about the next incident just because I didn't want to inconvenience him. But, as I was egged on by my family to tell him what happened, he swiftly got me another glass of wine and everything was great again.

As we were about to ask for our bill, Deni came over and told us that dinner was on the house that night. This wasn't normal, and assured that they were "better than this". I was fascinated by not only getting an amazing and free meal, but also the extent to which Auberge du Pommier goes to make sure their guests are satisfied. I would DEFINITELY recommend coming to this place, for its ambience, friendly staff, and classy vibes make it a memorable experience. Shoutout to Deni, you a real one!!!

We enjoyed the Summerlicious menu and found it to be quite nice. We were impressed by the apps and the dessert but a little disappointed in the main. We think it might have had to do with the Summerlicious event and that if we had ordered A La Carte it might have been more impressive.
I had the Salmon and my husband had the Cornish Hen Cordon Blu, both a little over done and lacked a "wow" factor. Loved the outstanding service and would definitely love to come back.

Went for summerlicious, lunch with the girlfriend. It was totally worth it.

Our chicken supreme and our steak were...chicken and a steak. The appetizers and deserts stole the show. Boar crockets had a full flavour, salad had some kind of unexpected pickled ingredint (pear?). Panna cotta was a typical execution but perfect. My parfait was light and refreshing. But of everything I’d say the potato salad was the best. Light, fluffy, tangy, but also somehow rich. Perfect with the flat iron.

Go to auberge for great execution of classic dishes, with a few unexpected touches.
