Pre Theatre/Anniversary Dinner

What a super restaurant. When I made the dinner reservation I mentioned it was our anniversary and that we would require a time that allowed us to get to the Avon Theatre for the evening performance of "Carousel". I booked for the time suggested and we arrived at that time, and were seated... read more

Another one of our fav Stratford spots has closed (Down the Street), so we were glad to find something in the same area and with a good selection, which includes very gluten friendly options. We arrived for our lunch reservation early, were greeted immediately and seated in an almost empty restaurant - which changed a lot over the next hour... More

Having read a lot of great reviews, I decided to try this place to see if it is a hidden gem. My food was lukewarm at best, and the wait for food was long. When waiting that long, the food should at least be hot

Whenever my sister visits from Montreal, she insists on at least one dinner at The Annex and I am more than happy to oblige. We love the varied menu - including wood-oven pizzas, great steaks, pastas, and always a fabulous special or two. Our last visit included a shared tempura avocado starter (wow), a beautiful tenderloin, and fabulous perch .... More

If I could rate this restaurant "good" I would, but since TA only allows "average" or "very good", I rated it "very good". We made a booking about ten days in advance for a pre-theatre dinner with adult children. On arrival there was no record of the reservation on either the restaurant or hotel books. Not to worry, apologies were... More

Tempura avocado were delicious. We had no reservations but they still accommodated us. Pasta had a bit too much oil but was still good. I had the smoked salmon pizza and I would recommend that. Think crust local goat cheese. Mill street beer on TSP. Great place for pre or post Shakespeare plays

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.
