Description: Great food is about passion and our chefs have it in spades. Our kitchen team draws inspiration from a combination of local, seasonal items with a balance of fine products imported from Quebec and both Canadian coasts. When the delivery comes from the hands of the person who grows the vegetables, raises the pigs, milks the cow or catches the fish, you really start to appreciate the hard work that goes into making things taste really good! Mercer Hall is the perfect backdrop for any occasion featuring local craft beers on tap, Ontario wines and innovative cocktails.

one of the best meals we've had. Chef's choice for Nosh Monday is better than a tapas meal anywhere we've been. Great food, great variety, excellent service. We love this place.

My fiancée and I were there for lunch. We had the famous pastrami sandwich and the short rib burger. Everything was very good, right down to the house made ketchup! Service and atmosphere were good as well.

Hello Catherine, I am terribly sorry that you had a less than pleasant experience. Please note: we have not had an oyster night in over a year, is it possible you were attending a different restaurant? If you would like oysters in the future, feel free to call ahead and we will order them in just for you. Don't hesitate... More

We went on a Monday evening for their Nosh. Each course is a surprise, and each was delicious. We are adventuresome about food, so it was a fun adventure to just wait to see what the chef would send out next. Each small plate we tried was delicious. I particularly liked the kale spanakopita, the mussels, the cabbage and short... More

I have enjoyed many wonderful brunches here with my extended family. Chicken and waffles are a family favourite. The desserts are both beautiful and delicious.

Probably the best place we've been recently in terms of customer service. Nothing is too much trouble for this friendly, upbeat staff .Food is great. Roasted cauliflower - just amazing. Great wine list and.... if you're lucky Jessie will be there to discuss wines . Great patio in summer. Our favorite place to be in Stratford.

Overall my meal wasn't as good as expected based on recommendations provided. The flavours were overpowering in the spanish potatoes despite being told that it would be well balanced. Half of the vegetables with my Salmon were not adequately cooked which was disappointing. Service was prompt and polite.

We had the cauliflower soup which was smooth and delicious with the added accent of the few tiny pickled carrot slices on top. The crispy duck leg was also delicious and again, the surprise of the tamarind drops underneath. Next morning we had the quiche with leeks which was the best I have ever tasted !

Made with short ribs, with farmers bacon, aioli and home made ketchup on a wonderful bun (brioche?) served with great fries and a delughtful craft IPA. A perfect lunch.
