Me and my boyfriend first visited the restaurant in May 2009 for an anniversary celebration. The service was exquisite. The waiter answered all our questions about the menu, and made great recommedations based on our preferences. When he found out that it was our first time at the restaurant, he sent us two free courses in between our orders - a mushroom soup and green apple sorbet. The portions were a good size and the food very delicious.
Since then we came back twice for Summer/Winterlicious lunch. For the $25 dollar value you essentially get the menu very similar to $45 dinner. Unlike some other restaurants during the -licious time, the food and service are great, the atmosphere is relaxing and you do not have a sense of urgency to finish your food and leave and do not feel over-crowded.
Would definitely recommend it and would definitely go back
I've always heard great things about this restaurant and was thrilled to finally go. I didn't realize it was so close to my house! Anyways, the food, like the other reviewer said, really lived up to its reputation. Great taste, portion, choice and great depth in flavour. I also really enjoyed the desserts and the foie gras appetizer was to die for! The ambiance and atmosphere is really nice and the service was great too.
My finacee and I visited Auberge du Pommier for their Summerlicious promotion on a Saturday night. We heard numerous good reviews about the restaurant; therefore, had very high hopes.
Prior to our dinner, I was awaiting gift certificates in the mail for the restaurant that I got through a third party vendor at work. They didn’t arrive after a couple of weeks so I had to call to cancel our reservation. When calling the host asked me why I was cancelling. I told him my snail mail problem and the host instantly said to keep the reservation and just drop off the gift cards once I got them in the mail. I was completely surprised they would credit my bill $100 without having the gift certificates on me – but they did without any question! I’ve never heard of a restaurant that was so accommodating.
The food definitely lived up to the reputation. It was incredibly good and had so many flavors. Each portion was the perfect size – not too big or too small. They explained each dish when giving it to us and were very down to earth for a high-end restaurant. One of the items I loved was the bread. It was warm and amazing – probably the best I’ve ever had before.
Overall, I’d recommend Auberge du Pommier in a heartbeat for anyone who loves French food. I’d say it’s easily one of the best restaurants in Toronto.
