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.

    Absolutely delicious. I have eaten at several places in the city and it’s definitely on the top of my list appetizers main dish. Everything portions are great worth every penny great service and the music volume and style is perfect. Great for 35 and up crowd. Great vibes.!

    Appetizers were really good. Really enjoyed the bread and butter, baked clams, and beef carpaccio. Lamb chops were good. Only complaint is that it seemed to take a while for us to get our order taken.

    We were celebrating my husbands birthday and our server Tiffany and manager Elana (hope I got the name right) went above and beyond to make our experience special. Didn’t take the name of another staff member that was helping us but she was phenomenal too! Tiffany explained the menu so well and her attention to detail was very good. Food was delish and the highlight was the coconut pie only cuz I do not have a sweet tooth whatsoever but I devoured it!! The whipped cream was not sweet at all and at perfect temperature and I cannot stop raving about it. Highly highly recommend it! Overall, really good vibes, loved the service and we enjoyed where we were seated as we were able to see the open kitchen and how food was made :))

    Hi There! What a stunning review. Elena and Tiffany are valued members of the Alder team and we are glad that they were able to make your evening so memorable. We look forward to hosting you and your husband again for another round of coconut cream pies! Best,

    I don't think I enjoyed a single think I ate at Alder. The food looked a lot better than it tasted. Over-priced underwhelming.

    My family and I dined at alder for Mother’s Day brunch. The food was amazing. The service was atrocious compared the the 3 previous times I’ve been there. Maybe the server was having a busy/stressful day or something I’m not sure. I won’t get into the details because it was rectified afterwards. But of the 3 people we spoke to no one even greeted us with their name or a greeting of some sort at any point. I do hope that this is a one time experience because I love this place and would return.

    Maia was a pleasure and made our dinner so lovely. The calmest temperament, we felt at home and so taken care of. The food was delicious and the Coconut Cream Pie, to die for! Thank you for a lovely evening.
