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 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.

    Incredible food, staff and atmosphere. My only comment is that it is expensive for what you're getting, but it's worth it every now and then. We didn't have a single item on the menu that we didn't like; drinks or food.

    The food was very good here and the Coconut Cream pie was legendary. Our server, Michaela, was fabulous. The music was very loud and obnoxious.
    AlderResponded today
    Hi CLTvisitor, Thank you for the kind words! The coconut pie is definitely a crowd favorite and Michaela is amazing as well. Although the majority of the evening was a hit, we are sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy the music. We truly appreciate the feedback and look forward to hosting you again. Best,

    Our first time dining at Alder. Came highly recommended and did NOT disappoint! Firstly, our server Maya was excellent. Coursed out our meal for us and was very knowledgeable on all the dishes. The food was excellent! Every dish we had was spectacular! Didn’t know I would like cabbage that much! Thank you for a memorable experience for an early Fathera Day dinner! We will definitely be back!
