We went before going to an evening performance across the street at the AVON. We sat in the window nook and found we could talk to each other without shouting as one does in some restaurants. The drinks, appetizer and mains were served in a timely way. The steak special was good, pasta so so, pork chop good. The big... More

I'm guessing all the food here is locally sourced as everything is fresh and has so much more flavor than store-bought products. Try the eggs benedict. The hash browns actually taste like freshly made hash browns rather than like the ones in so many restaurants where you know you are getting last night's baked potatoes served a different. way.

Second visit based on good service and meal the first time. Didn't measure up this time. In short; good salad, wonderful side vegetables, average frites and mediocre tenderloin.

Last night my family and I enjoyed a long lovely evening at Foster's. We wanted steak and had been told it was the best in town. The meal from appetizer to dessert was nearly perfect. I asked to have my steak re-fired (too done the first time) but the second piece was one of the best steaks I've had. The... More

We have been to Stratford several times and this is our favourite breakfast place. The restaurant us centrally located with a lovely decor. Menu items are interesting and varied, food and service are excellent. Definitely worth going.

The food here is very good and it is the place to be if you want to star watch. In recent years we have seen Colm Feore, Christopher Plummer, Paul Nolan and Brian Dennehy to name a few.

The food was fresh and prepared with care. The restaurant easily accommodates gluten free requests. The atmosphere is very comfortable including the open view of the chef at work.

Excellent service, food and drinks. Love the atmosphere and the staff. Rooms are clean and with character not just another hotel room.
