Good food, killer dessert

The menu was a bit limited, but the food was well prepared and tasty. Good wines at reasonable prices. And the dessert - we could have easily split one, but of course we didn't.

Visited for supper during the preseason and walked from our B&B. On previous visit, we had local pork and loved it but none on the menu this time. I had the special of Arctic Char on a bed of celery, tomato and fiddleheads with fingerling potatoes. So delicious that I asked for a soup spoon to get all of the... More

Jay Love is a wonderful chef who uses locally sourced food to build his menu. Staff are very observant and attentive. Meals are reasonable in terms of price and there is great value for your dollar. The open wood oven adds interest to the kitchen. We have been many many times, as locals. I would encourage guests to Stratford to... More

The Annex serves an incredible Thai Crunch Salad either in appetizer size or entre size. A must have when eating at our "special" Stratford restaurant. To-day I also enjoyed the Shrimp Fettucine in a basil cream sauce. A large, tasty dish with crisp vegetables in it.

We have eaten here before and been quite happy with our food, but yesterday was a let down. The butter chicken was served on what seemed to be minute rice and was a bit bland. The caesar salad was average and the waitress forgot the chicken for it, so it came later, and every plate was served to the wrong... More

We went as a family to celebrate my birthday. My son had the seafood app with garlic aioli, I had the romaine hearts with garlic ailoi and parm, my partner had what can only be described as the DECADENT Tempura Avocado! ... Then the mains were the Butter Chicken, the Grilled Beef Tenderloin (striploin the night we went), and the... More

Had another good meal here. It would be nice to see the menu changed up a bit. Always good though. Great soup on a cold day!

My wife and I along with a friend had a great dinner in September. Their dinner specials, whether they be beef or lamb are scrumptious, well presented. This was the third time this year, and we never have been disappointed. And, if you want a lighter fare, their selection of specialty pizzas are excellent for a pre theatre repast... Oops,... More

Had lunch at The Annex room for the first time. Decor and ambiance was very nice. Service was excellent. I had a wonderful parsnip and apple soup, shame had to ask for bread as none served, no crackers either, plus no butter came with the bread. We ordered a pizza between us and we almost laughed at the size of... More

Great food! And menu changes regularly to give you new choices. Creme brûlée is the best I have ever had.
