Description: 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. A modern French fine dining restaurant, Auberge du Pommier exudes a quiet confidence, reflecting a commitment to culinary excellence and inspired service. The cuisine honours both the refined techniques and rustic styles of classic French fare, with an innovative North American accent. Simple yet elevated, seasonal menus focus on quality by using the finest ingredients, highlighting their natural flavours and textures and plating them elegantly. Through its appreciation of fine food and elegant presentation, its intelligent, sincere service and its French, country-inspired décor, Auberge du Pommier perfectly balances charm and sophistication, romance and refinement.

By all means, this place is not for those without deep pockets.
But if you're looking for a place to have exquisite food I suggest coming here.
I'm usually fairly picky with money + food, however I was quite delighted with the quality of food i received for the money i have paid. Great servers and very not "demanding" types of servers.
Eat in style, pay your money, get what you deserve. Yum.

I had winterlicious for lunch and it was not bad. The food was above par especially I order the meatball which is on the regular menu. Conclusion, it was great, nothing to complaint but nothing really special either.

All in, I believe The Auberge to be one of Toronto's finest dining experiences. The white restaurant set amongst a copse of trees in Hogg's Hollow signals what is inside and waiting.
The room reminds me of Moulins de Mougins near Cannes--wide open with white walls and tiled floors. During the day the many windows usher the sun inside.
The menu changes regularly. Always presenting pleasant surprises. And the food preparation approaches perfect. While the food is not particularly gourmet-challenging, it is still quite high end. There may be no Everest foody experiences here but neither are there any Marianas Trenches.
The Auberge de Pommier has its hands firmly on the reins and the reins firmly attached to the horses.

Auberge du Pommier manages to do what few tier 1 restaurants can -- not only maintain excellence -- but enhance it.

The ambience, the food, the service is worth the price. I simply love it. Accolades. I have gone with friends, but will treat myself to a solo wind down dinner when I need a treat and a boost. Fab.

I'm going to just jump in on what everyone else seems to be saying about Auberge Du Pommier. I was part of a group of 4 last evening, and it was, in a word, superb.

Just a few quick thoughts:

I've been fortunate to have eaten in some fine restaurants - the finest have a few things in common. Most basically, the food should be great - in this you will not be disappointed. But more important for me is that the meal should be an experience. I want to remember more than the food, I want to remember the event. Auberge Du Pommier first delivers that with a beautiful building; it's less than 20 years old but feels like an ancient French farmhouse. Upon entry you are greeted by a wonderful display of wines, and a lovely reception area. We noticed right away the quality of the staff. They were just the right amount of friendly - very welcoming - but at the same time dignified and reserved. Our waiter knew his stuff, made excellent food and wine recommendations, and then sent the sommelier for further wine advice. A whole flock of additional servers and busmen visited our table for various duties, and flitted about purposefully, and they all really looked both like they knew what they were doing, and they actually liked doing it. Further adding to the experience was really good lighting, and even the right music played at the right volume.

In all it was a wonderful couple of hours with friends. No, it was more than that, it was an experience that really for me counts as special.
