This very popular upscale restaurant in Toronto has been winning crowds over for the last 27 years. One of the first Oliver & Bonacini restaurants, Auberge du Pommier offers authentic French cuisine in a rustic 19th century cottage. Very romantic.

So is Auberge du Pommier wheelchair accessible? Hm, kind of:

The front entrance is accessed by a sidewalk with a slope approximately 10m away at the intersection of Yonge St. and William Carsen Crescent. The accessible York Mills subway station is half a block south.

The walkway to the front doors feels like something out of a movie with flowers and an archway above. Two sets of 32 inch double doors await you, no automatic door opener. Once indoors the restaurant is divided up into three main sections- the above dining area beside the washrooms, the main dining hall and the stunning Parisian-like patio outdoors. Only the above dining area is barrier-free as the other two levels are divided by 3 steps. Because the staff at Auberge are extremely accommodating, they will offer the main dining area to all guests and assist them through another entrance through the kitchen. However, being on this floor means the washroom cannot be assessed so I have only taken pictures of the above dining space.

All the tables in the restaurant are standard height and chairs with armrests are available upon request. The single, wheelchair accessible washroom has a 34 inch door, 2 grab bars and an automatic dryer. The wide floating sink also provides ample space to freshen up!

If driving, there are 3, free wheelchair accessible parking spots in the above ground parking lot behind the restaurant. Be warned however, as these spots are shared between Auberge and the neighbouring business offices.

Overall, this restaurant's food and ambiance is just to beautiful to exclude from AccessTO. If feeling fancy, please head over and let us know about your experience!

Auberge du Pommier welcomes their guests to bring their own wine (corkage fee $35) and group events and/or weddings are their specialty! Call to inquire or refer to their website: http://oliverbonacini.com/OurRestaurants/Auberge-du-Pommier/About.aspx
