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.

Pricey, but gourmet fare, elegant service, unusual pairings of food. I'd go again. The first time I went there (years ago) was the first time I'd had a palette cleanser - my culinary education was broadened!

My husband and I always went to Auberge for special evenings for 2. It will forever be my favorite for experience. Any of the duck and seafood dishes we have had have always been superb.

We had heard a lot about this restaurant, and it is among the top 5 on TA, hence we thought we would try it out. We took advantage of winterlicious dinner menu, and can’t tell you how glad we are for doing so (as opposed to spending $$$ on the regular menu). To start off, I want to give props to what was enjoyable about the evening. The ambiance with the real wood burning in the fireplace, and the well thought out interior and seating is unparalleled by any other restaurant we have been to in TO. Our waiter was delightful – friendly and attentive to our needs.

The food, however, was mediocre! For starters, my husband ordered the braised leek and green cabbage soup that came with a slow poached egg and gruyere cheese. The idea of the soup was tremendous, but was executed poorly. I ordered the Smoked Salmon with watercress, capers, horseradish crème fraiche, and rye bread crostini – I could have made that at home!! For main, my husband had the grilled pork chop, which was fatty and under seasoned, however, the Brussels sprouts, braised red cabbage, roasted sweet potato puree with bacon jus that accompanied the chop was delicious. I had the Pot au Feu - braised beef short rib, root vegetables, classic garnishes, dashi bouillon. The beef was tough, which is a huge disappointment, as I like my braised beef to fall apart on the touch of a fork. The saving grace was all the flavourful garnishes. Dessert was the best part of the meal. We had the sticky date pudding with toffee sauce… one of the best desserts we have ever had, and the chocolate mousse cake with espresso cream, which was decadent. The cocktails on the menu were nothing to write home about, but I did enjoy a great cup of coffee with my dessert.

Would we ever go back… no!!

This place was packed due to the Winterlicious crowd. It was noisier than normal but we didn't mind. Roaring fireplace added the sound, sight and smell other restaurants don't offer. We ordered from the Winterlicious menu.
Simple leek and cabbage soup was prepared with poached egg floating on top. Pot de feu was done with a twist by the chef, still has the traditional southern France flavor.
Goat cheese for desert is the first time I came across in Toronto.

Service was very good and the food was excellent.

Overall verdict: will come again when possible.
