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.

New for 2024, join us on our patio for a new take on the Alder experience.

    Really great food! 10/10 would recommend the agnolotti and seabream! The beef carpaccio and scallop crudo were also major highlights. Great ambience perfect for a group of 5 during our little special occasion. Good service and kind staff. Will return again and again!

    The restaurant was really lovely, set inside and in the basement of a really lovely building but unfortunately we found that the service was pretty poor and experience overall wasn’t great. Would definitely visit again, I think we may have just had some bad luck.

    Best beef carpaccio I’ve had in a while. Server was great love the wine selection. Got seared in a very very cozy spot so it felt very private but the ambience around me was lively enough. We got the swordfish and sea bream and was not disappointed.

    Fabulous! Food was superb, service was above and beyond. Lovely space, great atmosphere. The hamachi and beet appetizer was innovative, delicious and incredible. Short ribs were so good I’ll never be able to order them again from anywhere else!

    Friendly server and great food but after the food arrived, it kind of all fell apart. Coffees were never refilled, our request for salt and hot sauce was forgotten and came out very late, and second cocktails, brought by a runner, only arrived when we had done eating and were about ready to pay. Either the drinks, too, were forgotten and put in later, once the server remembered to, or the bar is very slow, but the first round came out lightning fast. We didn’t say anything, unfortunately. Partly because our server was impossible to get ahold of, even to pay our bill. We had to flag down someone else to bring the payment machine. At $100 per person for brunch and such good food, one could reasonably expect the basics to be managed.
