Although I have lived in Stratford for over 15 years, this was my first time eating at Fosters. The experience was top notch and I will definitely be back. I had some sort of Cajun Salmon dish that was cooked to perfection. The choice of vegetables etc were also quite tasty. The service was excellent... My water glass was constantly... More

Foster's was reviewed as a good brunch restaurant and they really just serve from their menu so customers need to be prepared. The staff were pleasant , busy, and not prompt to serve and refill the coffee or take the orders. Nice option was to have salad with the Eggs Benny instead of starch but the Eggs Benny were light...

I went with three of my friends for a breakfast meal. We were not disappointed. We were greeted by a cheerful person who showed us to a front table by the window overlooking the street. A very good choice of seating. The breakfast choices are varied and not too expensive. My choice was the Eggs Benedict and it was one... More

Very few places open early for breakfast on a Sunday. Opens at 8am for early risers. Trekked to Fosters as suggested. We were promptly seated by the window. Selections were plentiful! Meals were delicious! Service was pleasant and efficient. Located close to the theatre. May consider staying at the attached inn next time around.

Had the filet and was very tender and tasty. Staff were very helpful. Smaller restaurant so when its busy it could get crowded. My hosts (locals) said it the best steak in town... I definitely can believe it.

We are in Stratford several times each year, and least one of those times we get together with family, prior or after a play.This was prior. We arrived before the rest, ad were shown to a table near the back of the restaurant, with an area that looked to have been cleared for a larger group. When the rest of... More

Been here 3 times. Twice for dinner and once for lunch. I have to say the dinner occasions were superb and the food great. It has an open kitchen which is always a good sign. For dinner we had the Chefs Pasta which was well prepared and very flavoursome, and on another occasion we had Steak which was also very... More

Were there with friends for dinner prior to the theatre. As mentioned below the space has a European flavor, pleasant casual wait staff but the food is only average and pricey. Granted Stratford restaurants do tend to be at the upper end of pricing especially during Festival season and that is not of concern if the food matches up. Another... More

The last two times I have ate at Fosters, I have found the wait staff to be stuck up and rude. The prices on the menu have risen, $14.99 for a lunch pasta, is just two expensive for what you receive, both my friend and had stomach problems after eating the pasta. Wait staff are not very attentive and it... More
