What a delicious lunch. 3of us shared 3 delicious and large appetizers, large green salad and I dessert. They were fabulous. Succulent crab cakes, fantastic type of gnocchi filled with fresh local ricotta and tender calamari. Very reasonable also. Easy drive to the theatre

Great service, massive burgers and fun, all inclusive atmosphere. Something of an unofficial 'gay' venue.

Tenderloin is the best, good wine and beer selection, very friendly efficient staff. Try it once and you will go back again.

My husband and I went to Fosters on the recommendation of our hotel. It was busy but there were empty tables that still had to be cleaned. After a ten minute wait we were seated, and drinks were brought and orders given - eggs Benedict and Huevos Rancheros. We actually sat there for an hour waiting for our meal! When... More

I had visited this restaurant in the pars and been quite impressed. My friend and I were there at dinner time, but as we were heading off to see Lear we didn't want a heavy meal. We liked the sound of the gingered carrot coconut soup and ordered that along with an order for,crab cakes and bruschetta with goat's cheese.... More

We eat at Foster's every time we come to the Festival. We're most comfortable planning in advance, so after we bought our theatre tickets last November and arranged for accommodations we booked dinner one evening for Foster's on a night we were seeing something at the Avon Theatre practically next door. I'm sure our reservations were made six months in... More

We eat at Foster's every time we spend a weekend in Stratford and it never disappoints. This time we weren't going to the theatre in the evening so ate a bit later and were able to have a very leisurely meal. The servers were very helpful and pleasant and the food was excellent. We both had the beef tenderloin, which... More

Friendly staff, nice atmosphere. Great tasting food but the side was minimal just one more potato would have made it a complete meal.......wouldn't have taken much. I realize some restaurants are cost cutting but customers are also looking for the full package meaning good food for a good price. Unfortunately we left feeling disappointed.

We enjoyed our meal at Foster's. Our server was really pleasant and accommodating. Two of our party had burgers ($18 a pop) which were delicious. You could choose your protein (beef, lamb or vegetarian) and two of the toppings. The fries were great. We also tried the lamb curry to good reviews. But the star was the beef short rib... More
