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

When we entered the restaurant, they were full in the indoor seating area. The indoor area was very noisy with many patrons talking in an animated manner. We were promptly taken to the outdoor area. This section was nice and quiet. It consisted of a long patio between 2 buildings with a decorative wrought iron gate at each end. It... More

Took the advice of several Trip Adviser reviewers, and booked in for lunch prior to a matinee performance at the Festival Theatre. Good idea to make a reservation..we arrived at 12:00 noon and had lots of time to order and enjoy our lovely lunch. The menu is extensive enough for all tastes and arrived in a timely fashion so that... More

I've been coming to Stratford once a year for many years now, and only discovered this restaurant last year, on my aunt's recommendation. I'm really glad she told me about it. The food is fabulous, the service is excellent, and the atmosphere is very friendly and warm. I highly recommend it.

We had a lovely dinner here and a sensational dessert. My brother considers a trip to Stratford complete when he has had dinner here. Staff was pleasant and environment was very comfortable.

Ate here as it was recommended by a local we met while ducking in a portico as a quick shower passed overhead. a bit pricy, but worth it! The presentation was marvelous, food scrumptious, so we recommend it while in town.

Got taken here by a friend who eats here regularly. Liked the crab cakes but loved the trio of creme brûlée dessert. I found it reasonably priced but then again it was lunch and we didn't do any liquor. First great impression and I will definitely go back .
