Pre theater very busy. Eat after 8 p.m.and far less crowded.

Went for dinner with partner at 8:30 p.m. After the pre-theater folks had finished. Us and a dozen dinners at that time. Waiter friendly and efficient. Food (fish and chips and salmon) satisfactory. Decor pleasant.

My mom and I had lunch there before a play this weekend. First thing is the menu... If you are seeking anything even remotely healthy, it isn't a good option. I was wanting something lighter and saw one option on the menu so decided to eat there. The soup tasted alright... Needed seasoning and lacked any sort of garnish. The... More

This restaurant is gorgeous. However looks can be deceiving. We came to celebrate my wife's birthday and left disappointed. I thought this was a fine dining establishment. However most such places start you off with some type of bread. The Parlour----nothing. Our server asked me how I wanted my salmon, which was great. Our food was very good, but a... More

"This is Stratford Insider Trading" Want a great breakfast at reasonable pricing, lovely decor. No clanging of dishes, bacon smoke in the air, or the dinging of a bell for ..... "next order up". You won`t leave smelling like bacon and eggs.The prices are comparable to most breakfast restaurants.($10 with unlimited coffee). It is a hidden gem if you want... More

Not great. Not a good selection of food, and when the lunches arrived, they were just adequate. I've eaten there in the past and it was always excellent. Very disappointed.

I had the ribeye which was all fat. Hubby had a lamb dish which he liked. He also had the Pavlova desert that he is still raving about. We enjoyed the ambience, the waitstaff was attentive, the wine was very good, but I don't think this will be a place we will return to. Very pricey for what you get.

This restaurant is gorgeous. From the table settings to the charm of an old building it hits a home run for ambience. The food for lunch is incredible. Not overpriced at all and worth every penny. If you are visiting the Avon or studio theatre this is definitely where you should eat.

I had the most amazing mussels ever tasted. Good Service. We had a large group of 12 and all were happy with drinks, food and service. Will definitely go again.

Lunch time, greeted very well, seated very well, menu presented & described very well, meal arrived on time & was delectable. OK, that day , at that time, a situation was in progress with short-staff and extra customers and even with a lack of care & understanding on the part of one or two customers the wait staff & manager...
