I have been going to Stratford for years and because it was my wife's birthday, went upscale. I was very impressed. The food was excellent, the service with just the right level of formality. I would recommend the Old prune to anyone looking for a good meal in Stratford. Expensive is easy to find...good not so much.

Our dining experience at the Old Prune was hands-down the best in Stratford, and definitely among our best ever. I had noted the nature of our visit on the Open Table reservation, and all of the staff congratulated... More

Service was terrific, and the restaurant is charming. What more could anybody want from a restaurant for dinner? How about free samples of appetizers and asperatives from the talented... More

We were all pleased with our meals, and were totally wowed by the chocolate bread pudding. We enjoyed a leisurely meal served in a timely manner by a very helpful and pleasant server... More

My father treated my husband and myself to dinner at The Prune on Saturday night to celebrate our 24th anniversary. We had a delicious meal, served by experienced, polite and knowledgeable staff. Rarely have I experienced dinner out with a staff so challenged by problems getting the food to our tables and yet dealing with this overwhelming situation so graciously.... More

My husband and I had dinner (sort of) at The Prune last night. Although we arrived at 5:45 pm, we had to leave to catch our 8:00pm show before our main courses arrived. We were assured repeatedly that the food was on its way but when it had not arrived by just after 7:30 we decided to leave. The staff... More

Dear CAE1232014, We appreciate you taking the time to comment about your experience with us and we apologize again for the inconvenience you may have encountered.
