Lovely atmosphere, professional yet friendly service. All four of us enjoyed our lunch which was fresh and delicious. Next time we'll go for dinner.

We really like Keystone Alley. We come here on each of our visits to Stratford. Our waitress was knowledgeable, pleasant and efficient. The food was top drawer. My wife had beet soup and a duck breast with lentils and I had a grilled North Atlantic char. For desert we had a creme brule trio (three different flavors). All dishes were... More

Had not been to the Keystone in a few years but went back and found it to be the same, outstanding restaurant. I had the spring rolls and they were delicious as well as the chicken curry entre. I asked about a Canadian wine and was given a great choice. The atmosphere reminds me of a small bistro in France,... More

Keystone Alley Café has been our Stratford tradition for over ten years. Three of us split the duck pate, but we could each eat a whole order. The luncheon quiche is my favorite with a very nice mixed greens salad.

We always have at least one meal at Keystone Alley when we visit Stratford. The food is delicious and the service impeccable.

We had a really excellent lunch before the theatre. I had salmon and a salad prepared gluten free for me with no trouble. There was a delicious salsa on the salmon. The fries were apparently amazing but not gluten free so I couldn't try them. All four of us raved about our lunches. We were running 30 minutes late and... More

I wanted to like this place, since it had been recommended by our innkeeper hosts. Sadly, however, neither the food nor the service was acceptable. My turbot entree had no flavor at all, even with the so-called citrus sauce that accompanied it. I gave it a try, but finally told our server it lacked any taste. She said (keep in... More

very good service even though it was very busy, dinner was fantastic. One thing though, next door is a pub with an outside patio where people can smoke. As soon as you leave Keystone you get hit full in the face with the stink of cigarettes

Our group of 7 (not to be confused with the painters!) met here at 5:30, between afternoon and evening shows. The fairly small, long room has comfy seating with cushioned benches against the wall plus chairs. The menu is small but interesting. Entrees cost between (about) $28 - $38. I had the fish special: Arctic char with lemony dill sauce... More

I look at the recent reviews and wonder if I was at the same restaurant! Service was centered on turning the table over twice before the next show performance. Restaurant was full and noisy. Three of us were all disappointed with our selections. My 96 year old mother-in-law complained her tenderloin was overcooked. Because of her age she speaks a... More
