Auberge du Pommier
We’ve been going to Auberge for special occasions for over ten years and we were always pleased with the quality of the food there. However last night was a big disappointment. The appetizers were OK but for the main course we chose the ‘cut of the day’ for two. It was a strip loin that was chewy and tasteless and the sides and sauces overly salty. It was one of the worst steaks I ever had in a restaurant, something you definitely wouldn’t expect in a place like Auberge du Pommier.
Jordan our server was fantastic and attentive the food as always was perfect! The squash soup was absolutely delicious!
lovely lunch for 5 by the crackling fire
we all ordered coffee after the meal - it was decidedly stale, I would have expected a fresh pot ... a sour note on an otherwise delightful lunch
This was probably the most exquisitely presented meal I’ve ever had the privilege of enjoying the wine, Cristina Mt Jefferson 2015, was perfect. Each dish has excellent flavour
It has been quite awhile since we have been Auberge du Pommier. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves! We are just waiting for the winter menu and will be back!
Friendly greeting and table selection.
Service is French style and very good. We did however wish the server would have plated the vegetables rather than a pass around bowl, with no spoon.
Food and presentation was excellent.
Good wine selection and champagne.
Prices are not for the faint of heart.
Thoroughly enjoyed the total experience of lunch, and so did my two guests.
My 40th birthday at Auberge Du Pommier was everything I had hoped for. The ambiance at the restaurant is subtle elegance as the backdrop is large whitewashed stone encapsulating the area will there is a beautiful white bouquet centrepiece in the main dining area. The wait staff are knowledgable and courteous, always looking to make your experience a memorable one. My sincere thanks for making my milestone birthday a special one.
Fantastic tasting menu. Adding wine paring seemed like a no-brainer at such a great value. Everything we ate was perfectly prepared and exactly complemented by the wine paired with each dish.
Auberge was a favourite of mine while living at Yonge & Lawrence 20 years ago but have since moved away. I recently returned and was delighted to see the same quality that I knew then is still alive and well. The staff are all happy, friendly, and helpful. The menu is extremely well thought out and the food is spectacular both in presentation and taste.
Would highly recommend for a top-end dining experience.
Lovely ambiance. We were celebrating three birthdays. We knew going in it would be a bit of a splurge and we enjoyed it all.
Very good but would like to have more veggie
As always an excellent choice for a special occasion restaurant. Finer dining through and through. O&B's flagship is an absolute pleasure.
Wonderful birthday dinner with excellent service from all staff members and delicious food.
I was blown away with how wonderful everything was. The rood was amazing!
Overall, we were really hoping to enjoy this place. We chose the tasting menu.
The good - service was excellent, ambience was nice and desert was great.
The not so good - for a place with such a reputation for quality food, ironically, the food was the underwhelming part. The beef course was especially disappointing. Not sure what cut of beef was served, but it was way to chewy and we both tried a couple of bites before giving up. The fish dishes were just ok, and overall nothing really stood out. The desert was the best part of the meal. Unfortunately we had to sit through all the other dishes beforehand.
Bottom line - We will not go back anytime soon. Perhaps the tasting menu was just the wrong choice.
We were sitting in the room adjacent to the patio which was beautiful. Service was very good. While the food was beautifully presented it was lukewarm at best. That was very disappointing. We were celebrating, so no one wanted to complain and ruin the mood. The dining chairs were so old they were threadbare and very uncomfortable. We chose Auberge because we wanted a truly fine dining experience not a mediocre, expensive evening.
Dining experience is excellent as always, the dishes were all a little over season during this visit though, a bit too salty for my palate.
I was really looking forward to the experience and while the ambience and service were great, the food was mediocre.
One of the best meals I ever had, my favourite restaurant in Toronto by far!
When our order was sent to the wrong table, our server told us we would get new "plated" orders. 2 minutes later, our order. Was it a new order?
I also liked the "business casual". Our neighbour had on sweat pants and the other table had on a ball hat. Not the "fine" dinging we hoped for.
We don't get out often for special meals kid free and this was a terrific evening top to bottom. The evening flew by in the best not rushed way. Food was fantastic, service attentive, ambiance lovely.
My friend and I began to have our annual birthday celebration at the Auberge when it was a significant birthday for each of us. Now we won't settle for anywhere else, and damn the numbers! At least you only bring us one candle apiece to blow out! Always a pleasure.
The staff was very friendly as well as very attentive. We asked what their recommendation was between 2 items on the menu, and they were spot on. We asked for a suggestion on the wine list based on personal preference and once again, it was exactly what we were looking for.
We will definitely be back again.
Lovely experience and relaxing environment. Nothing bad to say about it.
Absolutely amazing as always! Great service, amazing food and amazing wine!
The only comment I have was the server who server us.
No courtesy to follow up our meal. All he does was delivered our lunch in the table and never return until we ask for a check. I am not sure if the is part of the restaurant culture or just individual. From my personal point of view, this is a customer service should be, especially in a fine dining restaurant.
Although we have paid him the above average gratuity is because we respect the restaurant, and the outstanding food from the culinary team made for us. If to the server as individual, it wasn't not worth it at all.
If you're looking for a restaurant with a typical French ambiance, then this is the place to go. Knowledgeable and very courteous staff. I had a lovely evening with our guests.
Outstanding! This place never disappoints. Everything is 5 star.
The food as always was outstanding. We had the walleye fish and it was so tasty and perfectly cooked. The accompanying sides were fabulous as well. The sommelier was really excellent. He was so personable and provided such a truly outstanding wine recommendation. The wine and the main course paired perfectly and really enjoyed the wine just for sipping. Do take advantage of his skills. The weak spot was service by our waiter. It was OK but you had to reminder him of your requests like refilling water glasses other things took forever. Normally service is outstanding but I would only rate the service this time as average.
Very poor service
I made this reservation for my sister and daughters to have a special lunch. They reported that the food was superb, the surroundings lovely and the service "next level". Well done!
We were seated and ordering when the restaurant called to see if we were coming.
We noted it was for a birthday when we made the reservation but the restaurant did not recognize it.
Ordered gin and tonic and vodka tonic as cocktails and were served with a ginger tonic. A heads up and choice would have been nice.
Got seated at 6:00 pm, arrived early
Main course served at 8 pm!
Menu and chef recently changed
Very little food on plate
Vegetables are offered in foam form
Beef was undercooked and tough
Lamb was served in 2 tiny pieces on plate
Service was slow and cold
We have been to Auberge for business and pleasure several times
A truly special dining experience!
A great place to celebrate. The staff are attentive and considerate, the food is fantastic and the ambiance is perfect. We will be back. Highly recommended.
Wonderful place to enjoy dinner. Auberge du Pommier never disappoints.
We did the tasting menu with wine pairing.
Very expensive but had a dinning experience that will not be fir gotten.
Service is exceptional.
