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.

Restaurant is a very romantic decor, with a great matri D and wait staff. Value for money isnt really there, as there are other elite dinning experiences in Toronto for a more reasonable price. Presentation on food was exceptional, but flavor profiles on some of the dishes left something to be desired.

Honest opinion:

Food was average at best, maybe on Valentine’s Day they’re a little busier than typical, but if you aren’t going to try your best on that day I don’t see how you’ll win more business for the future.

Service was definitely sub par. Don’t judge diners just because they look young and you think they might not tip you well cause that’s exactly what cost your a majority of your tip.

Food and service is excellent. Decor let’s it down. It’s not bad but it’s showing it’s age especially the carpeting and tables. Loved the food

2nd year coming for Valentine’s Day dinner. Food and service is always exceptional. We plan to make it out Valentine’s Day tradition. We like the restaurant so much we are having our engagement party here if that gives you any idea of our thoughts on the restaurant.

We enjoyed the place very much. We did not expect much from a French restaurant in North America, but we were pleasantly surprised. It is not cheap, but for the exquisite French cousine, it is reasonably priced. We also enjoyed the recommendations of French-speaking wine expert for the Canadian wine. We did not even know that there wine making in Canada!

What a beautiful venue for a special occasion. The food was fabulous, the service was amazing, I will definitely go again but request that my chair does not back on to a serving station as my chair was continually bumped through dinner and there was constant action behind me. Guess it was a busy night as part of the Winterlicious promotion.

The service was great and the room(s) / seating are very comfortable...the fire place was a nice touch. The food was good, but the wine prices had a very heavy mark up and were not very affordable. I know why restaurants prefer customers to order wines from their menu, but if they offer corkage, I think $45.00 is out of line. We have eaten in similar restaurants in Napa and Sonoma and never had to pay that much for corkage.

The servicers were friendly and very attentive.
The flavours in the food were excellent.
Everything was prepared just right.
The only negative...as the place filled up it became harder and harder to carry on a conversation. Very noisy for such a place.

Enjoyed a Winterlicious lunch. It was delicious although my chicken entree could have been more exciting - would have benefitted from more sauce. Highly recommend apple brandy hot drink. Nice ambiance overall.

I've heard many great things about this restaurant, so I thought we'd give it a try for Winterlicious. The ambience and noise level were great. The service was excellent, dare I say perfect. The only issue was the food. It was a huge disappointment. The smoked salmon appetizer was very basic, and the duck was nothing special. The entrées were average as well, the beef dish was flavourless and bland. The tuna was good but not spectacular. The desserts were okay. I understand that for Winterlicious, the menu choices were limited and probably simpler and less complex. But I didn't feel like this was worth it. Maybe during regular season, the food is better and more impressive.

Our waiter Andrew made the experience top notch. I have eaten there before and thought the waiter a bit snobby. This time we hit jackpot with Andrew. I will certainly go back and ask to be at his table section.

Since it was Winterlicious, the restaurant was much more busy than usual. The waiter said that at lunchtime (we dined at 12:30 pm) there would normally be 50 and the day we dined, there were 300 expected. The noise level was extremely loud, but the service exceptional as always. I had the chicken luncheon special, and found it did not have very much taste and was quite bland. The caesar was excellent, as was the olive oil infused cake dessert. I would recommend this restaurant, just not during winterlicious.

A very charming ambience, large wine selection, and professional staff was what we experienced when we dined at Auberge du Pommier. The overall food quality was good. Although the combination of vegetables and carbohydrates was a bit lacking.
