and it was delicious! Who knew? I was there with three other people and everyone loved their dinner. The wine list was full of really good Ontario wines, their bartender(s) make a great cocktail, the food was just inventive enough but still very comforting. We also stopped by on a Sunday night when it was industry night and enjoyed an... More

We had discovered it last year and hoped it would be as good this year. We were not disappointed. Three of us had dinner (2 course fixed price is $48). Great tartare appetizer (with ancho chili-very creative), Wedge salad was great--beautifully dressed with a lovely blue cheese and buttermilk dressing. Cold cucumber soup with little chick-peas was great too. For... More

I'm all about ambiance so this place was great! The food was excellent and the atmosphere was great. They had an “industry night” when we were there which was so fun! Great people, great food.

I went to this restaurant a couple of weeks ago and had the chicken and waffles. They were so good!! The chicken was crispy, flavourful and juicy. The waffles were fluffy on the inside and crisp on the outside. The service here was prompt and overall very enjoyable. Atmosphere is busy but not overwhelmingly loud, just a very good "buzz"....

Although we only stopped for a cool drink it was easy to see by the plates around us that this restaurant is fantastic. What impressed us most was our server - many stop the attention as soon as they realize that they won't be getting a big check. Our server redoubled her efforts and we had fun talking about Stratford... More

My brother and I visited Stratford last weekend to have lunch and see a play. We had a wonderful lunch at Mercer Hall. It was packed when we arrived and we took seats at the bar, where we could see the hardworking, efficient and very competent staff mixing drinks and taking orders. For drinks my brother had a beer he'd... More

We enjoyed dining on the front patio at Mercer Hall where light tasty meals were just right prior to attending a theatre performance ... Lovely young capable waitstaff!

We went to Mercer Hall without knowing much about it except that we had read the menu and liked it. It is a classy place, strong masculine decor, exposed brick, says solid value. Service was very good and the food wonderful, a real pleasure. This is more of an adult crowd restaurant not for kiddies or families, unless we are... More

What a great place this is. My husband, father and I had dinner here and it was delicious. We enjoyed every single course. I had the beet salad then the hanger steak then dessert. Every morsel was to die for. Will certainly return as the service was excellent too.

Prior to King Lear yesterday, my friend and I wanted to go for lunch. She likes Pazzo but I find their portions small for what one is paying. If I can count the lettuce leaves on the salad, there is a problem. Before she could suggest returning to that restaurant, I went online to search for another venue. Mercer Hall... More
