The lunch menu sounded delicious. The decor was charming and the service was attentive. The salad special was skimpy for the price and I left hungry. I would go again for another try.

Our table was ready when we arrived ( a later seating; 2:00PM). They were very busy with a full crowd and it took the wait staff a minutes to realize we were seated. But once we were in their care, the service was excellent. The food was outstanding. Best grilled swordfish I have ever had. It was an overall excellent dining experience and we will go back again and again.

The restaurant was very busy as it was Father's Day. However, the staff made sure that guests were not rushed and were given all of the attention necessary for a wonderful occasion. The food was just superb.

Great place to meet for Sunday brunch with friends. The service and food were excellent. Good variety of breakfast and lunch selections. Would definitely visit again. Enjoyed by all!

Our Father's Day brunch was very good but I was a bit disappointed that our choices were those of an " American" bistro rather than the French bistro I had anticipated. Will try again maybe for lunch or dinner.

This is our favorite restaurant in the Charlottesville area. We have eaten here several times and have never been disappointed. The food is well-prepared and delicious. The wine list is outstanding and the wait staff are very knowledgeable and experienced.

All 4 of us from RIchmond, VA drove out to lunch at Pomme and meander along the street to check out the shops!! Gordonsville is growing up nicely!! Pomme had been recommended by several Richmonders... didn't dissappoint! Geraldine our server and her daughter (itf that was possible) did a great job again (was there 6/6/16 with Naples, FLA friends) were welcoming, friendly, knowledgeable and attentive without hovering. Couldn't ask for much more. The crab salad, seared seafood salad and the quiche were all excellent. The hit of the day was, of course, the dessert.... the Basil Lemon Tart was delicious with just the right mix of tangy and smooth... that basil just adds something special as well. One process improvement, despite being sensitive to the "made to order" approach, the wait seems to be a bit more than "right" for me.
love love love!
My husband and I try to always stop at this gem of a restaurant every time we are on our way to the mountains. The food is unbelievable, and the staff are always very welcoming and do a great job! I wish we lived closer so we could go more often, but it makes it more special :)
The food here is fabulous! A small intimate space with very quaint decor. A brother-sister team run the front with one server and their service is wonderful! The food is fresh, local, and delicious. Fresh, crusty bread, beautiful eye appeal to the plates, delicious sauces, and excellent sides. Their meat is well prepared and flavorful! Desserts are homemade and amazing. Nice variety of after dinner drinks, coffee, expressing, and cappuccino. We had a picky eater with us and even she was pleased with her meal. My husband and I go here every time we are in Gordonsville and I was pleased to shared this jewel with my friends!
Worth the Drive from RIC
My first visit to Pomme, although I've heard good things from several friends in RIC. I was not dissappointed and thought the overal experience was above... way above expectation. The wait staff could not have been more friendly, knowledgeable about food/wine, attention to just the right level and appeared proud to work at Pomme. I had guests from Naples, FLa with me and they were very impressed as well. One had fried oysters (delicious) along with a sparkling wine the server suggested. The soft shell crab was sauteed just right... lots of flavor, minimum oil/grease, no batter... perfect! The third in our party had the quiche... nice size portion, fresh tasting, hot, tasty and presentation was enticing. Best experience in a long time..... coming back next Tues with a new group .. enjoyed it!

The cocktails tasted watered down although we ordered very dry vodka martinis and they were incredibly small even by DC standards. We had to request more bread with the meal rather than being offered any. And they should really start telling you the price of the specials rather than making one ask. Have been there many times over the years. Always liked it before and may go again but if another experience like this, that will probably be it.

Restaurant Pomme is a true gem! The food is always absolutely fresh, perfectly prepared and bursting with flavor. The wait staff is attentive, but not smothering.
Small Town Gem, Plays With the Big Dogs
Who would think to find this delightful dining experience smack in the middle of small-town America! The room is gorgeous...relaxing, inviting and quite French. The service was smooth, professional and friendly without being patronizing. The food was delightful: we started with the special app of the day being a lobster/mango plate that was bright and playful and quite tasty. Mor my entree I ordered another special - the young calves liver which I never order except maybe at a local diner. This was a thin, pink slice of liver perfectly seared and totally devoid of the metallic after taste one often finds with liver. My wife ordered another special - the blackened amber jack which was perfectly prepared and very flavorful. The veggies that night were snap peas and truthfully, they came out overdone but the flavor was spot on. We indulged in desserts - a chocolate truffle of some sort with ice cream and a lemon tart. Both were tasty and presented nicely but not worth the calories. All in all, Pomme was on par with the top restaurants in Northern Virginia and DC and we certainly will be back as soon as possible. Be sure to get a reservation on weekends as the place was packed by 7 PM.
As Excellent As Always
Pomme is a true gem tucked away in Gordonsville. We always stop there if we are near Charlottesville. It is well worth short detour. Food exceptional as always. Waiter took awhile to warm up and I think they were short staffed but service was prompt and waiter warmed up as evening progressed.

We have long considered La Pomme to be our "special" date.....but no more. Duck Confit was tasteless, stuffed veal tasted stale, service was erratic and uninspired. We are rethinking our whole "special date" plans. Must admit, we have had many fine meals at La Pomme.......but were stunned to be served so poorly.

Superbly prepared food! Wine list nicely compliments menu. This visit was for Sunday brunch. We are repeat customers.
UVA Grad dinner
We truly enjoyed our dinner at Restaurant Pomme for our son's UVA graduation. The restaurant decor is lovely with lots of French character. The food was outstanding and beautifully presented. We especially enjoyed their short ribs which they were able to do gluten-free with no problem. Desserts were also spectacular. The only less than stellar aspect was some type of turf war going on between our servers as we were introduced to one tall gentleman as our server, and then another women introduced herself as our server and then quickly disappeared as the original server returned and then he abandoned us towards the end with no explanation... it was confusing and the service was a bit slow and the original server never asked if we wanted additional wine, drinks etc. so our glasses sat empty. Other than that, it was a lovely experience and we would definitely return and would highly recommend when you are out in the Cville area.
Fabulous food in a charming little town
Delicious French food in a lovely setting. Country decor, great service and you can actually have a conversation here as the noise level is quiet to moderate. Many choices which should please all in one's party. Highly recommend
Special Restaurant for a Special Occasion!!
We started the homemade soups (French Onion and Cream of Broccoli) .. they were wonderful! My husband had the special chicken dish of the day which he savored to the last bite and I had the crab and apple entree which was light and refreshing! The atmosphere for lunch was exactly how we like it .... private and quiet and we were lucky to be seated at the window table!! We will be back to this exquisite, country French restaurant!
La Pomme is a pleasant French restaurant in Gordonsville with wonderful food. Everything is delicious and though the menu is small it is very interesting and varied. The desserts were unique and much appreciated.

We stopped for a weekday lunch. Beautiful surroundings and attentive, formal service. Food was very good, but soup came out lukewarm and the salad was over dressed. Ingredients were delicious, but covered in what was too much of a tasty dressing. I usually ask for dressing on the side, but forgot. Lunch options and full entrees. Lunch for two without wine was $45.

I only have lunch there, with friends. My husband is a steak and potatoes man so when we go out in the evening it is not to a French restaurant.

As always our dining experience at Restaurant Pomme was fantastic! Our guests all agreed that it is a great restaurant with lovely atmosphere and outstanding food! We always take our first-time visitors to Restaurant Pomme because it is such a gem, and we know we can tell our guests that everything on the menu is beyond delicious!

Atmosphere of the town, charming. ...The restaurant, quaint. Regardless of the excellence of the product, I am a firm believer that no great chef should be associated w miniscule or modest portions relative to price. Would revisit on special occasions only, and only to please my guests, as the modest portions can leave one impressed but hungry!
Wonderful French classic experience.
We have enjoyed Restaurant Pomme many times since our discovering it while driving through Gordensville several years ago. The menu is varied but never disappointing. A great place for a special celebration with friends, a Sunday Brunch, or a private romantic dinner.
A great restaurant with tasty food
Ambiance great. Service professional, helpful and not overbearing. Food delightful and well plated. Desserts yummy!
Excellent as always
Had dinner here again while visiting central Virginia, a wonderful dining experience as always. Great food, wine, and service, makes an excellent dining destination.
Well worth the trip to Gordonsville, VA
We are frequent diners at the Pomme and list it as one of the very best restaurants in Virginia. While it is quite out of the way, Gordonsville is a quaint town that the Pomme makes well worth visiting. We have never been disappointed by the food, the service, and atmosphere at the Pomme and usually only go there for Saturday lunch. The staff is most professional and attentive. Strongly recommend you make reservations as it stays full all the time and open seating is hard to come by. Try the Sole - absolutely fantastic! Don't try the crème brulee though - leave it ALL for me! Laugh here. Take the trip to the Virginia countryside and visit Gordonsville and the Pomme. You will not be disappointed.
Wedding anniversary celebration
We enjoyed a lovely wedding anniversary celebration dinner at Pomme.
A casual lunch with a friend was ruined by lousy crab salad. Restaurant Pomme does not stand up to its good reputation. Service was OK, but food was poor and cost high.
"Authentic" Bistro Fare in a Lovely Setting
We're frequent visitors to this country gem and have never been disappointed. The food is reliably excellent and the bistro French menu offers something for everyone -- all prepared with obvious care. You can't go wrong.
We have been eating here for years! Such a wonderful restaurant in a quaint little town. Food is always excellent and the staff is very warm and friendly! Highly recommend for an intimate dinner or a wonderful brunch. It's my mothers favorite place to be taken on her birthday, Valentine's Day, etc.
I love the Pomme. It remains my favorite.
The food and service are five star, as far as I am concerned. You cannot do better. Also the town of Gorduonsville is a find with interesting shops and houses, and the drive in from the north is spectacular.

Pomme never disappoints. All of our meals were excellent and service was prompt, gracious and smooth. Filet of sole, filet mignon and seared tuna were all cooked perfectly. Lobster bisque was rich and flavorful, and gazpacho was refreshing with an unusual touch of balsamic drizzled on top.
Great Meal at Restaurant Pomme
We had a wonderful veal entrees with delicious French wine (2005 Merlot-Cab Blend from Burgundy) at our recent dinner at Restaurant Pomme. The owners were very friendly and accommodating. We have dined there previously when we stayed at the Chestnut Hill Bed & Breakfast in Orange, VA, and we will definitely be back on our next visit!
the food was very tasty however the amount of food for the price is rather high

Went for brunch on Easter. So worth the drive (which is beautiful) from Charlottesville. Can't wait to go again.
