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... read 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.

This family owned restaurant in Stratford, Ontario, offers very good food, in an easy to find downtown location. A fireplace and open kitchen provides a relaxed and cozy atmosphere to catch lunch or dinner. The pricing is fair and the servings are more than ample. This is not elegant dining but it will not disappoint in the quality of the... More

We visit Stratford every year to attend the theatre and often choose this establishment at least once a season. The atmosphere is great and we are always met at the door with a very warm welcome. The menu has lots of options that meet the dietary needs and tastes of anyone we bring there. I especially love their appetizers and... More

Good spot for before theatre dinner. Friendly service, relatively small menu, which is not a bad thing. Busy the night we were there, but took our order quickly. Food took awhile to arrive, and wait staff apologized for the wait, but it was good. Steak was done as ordered.

This was such a welcoming place, with little lamps glowing on some of the tables, and wonderful aromas coming from the open kitchen. Service was quick on a rainy Tuesday evening after King Lear. The meals were beautifully presented, but my chicken was overdone and some of the veggies underdone. My husband enjoyed the beef tenderloin with garlic mashed potatoes.... More
