Alder is grounded in the exceptional made accessible, with a menu offering original takes on timeless dishes and preparation styles. For his dishes, Chef Patrick draws inspiration from the gastronomic traditions and techniques long-practiced in and around the Mediterranean, applying a deft touch to thoughtfully sourced ingredients, accenting and elevating flavors found in nature. The kitchen, centered around a wood-fired grill, prepares dishes intended to delight, sustain and nourish.

Added to the 2023 Toronto Michelin Guide, Alder is a warm and protected place to be, like just the right distance from a bonfire.

    Disappointed in the decor. For a highly rated restaurant it was very pedestrian, almost embarrassing. The endive salad was excellent. My lamb's great flavour was overpowered by the crust. My Morrisette cabernet franc was very good. The coconut cream pie was excellent. My overall rating was based on the "star" of the show, the lamb.

    Hi Rickart, Thank you for taking the time to leave us this feedback. We are glad that you enjoyed the Endive salad, our lovely Pearl Morrisette Cabernet Franc, and the Coconut cream pie. We hope to host you again soon! Best

    Food and vibes were good but our server didn’t really enhance the experience in anyway. We weren’t really greeted and didn’t know who was our server at first, the table seated after us had their server come and great them, take a drink order etc. I would normally expect to be greeted, offered a drink and perhaps asked about the menu or just more acknowledgment

    Mikayla was our server and she was amazing. My octopus was over cooked and very chewy but everything else was awesome.

    We went to Alder for my birthday dinner and we were very disappointed. The baked clams were gritty so were probably not cleaned properly. We ordered an extra lamb chop as we were a party of three. There was a section of that lamb chop close to the bone that was inedible. Other than that, the food was of high quality but nothing extraordinary. There wasn’t any one dish that was so delicious that I would want to go back for. The server did not come by in a timely manner to offer my fiancé another drink after he finished his cocktail. My cocktail was almost taken away when I still had a few sips. With the food, they tried to take away some plates as we were grazing on the last couple of bites. Our server didn’t know the wines when I asked a question and sold us a Riesling even though we told him that we don’t really like Rieslings but we did not want to make a fuss so we just accepted it. We had to remind them to top up our wine glasses too. When the dinner cost north of $500 for 2 adults and a 10-year old child, I expected a much better dining experience. I thought it strange because I has been to the hotel lobby a few times before where the food is from the same kitchen and had really great experiences. The decor and architecture is probably the highlight for me. Maybe they were having an off-night since it was a Sunday? Too bad for us. Go spend your hard earned money at Giulietta, Quetzal, Lake Inez, Buca Yorkville or Grey Gardens. Plenty of other excellent restaurants in the city to choose from.

We pride ourselves on having staff who are very knowledgeable about our menu and wine selections so we are saddened to hear about your reservation. This is not our typical standard of service and we hope to host you again soon for the proper Alder experience. Best,
