"Gastropub"?

I hate that word, because it makes me think of slugs and snails. However, food and ambience were very good at The Parlour. I had a delicious cheese and potato soup followed by a Caesar salad. Both ere excellent, but $7 for a bowl of soup seems a bit much. My dinner companions ordered gnocchi... read more

The Parlour is a Stratford tradition. If you have been part of the theatre scene there you know this place. It goes up and down with service, food and hosting. On the good days there is not a better place to enjoy the traditional and gourmet food in a setting taking you across the pond. The bad days are just... More

It's been our favourite place to dine in stratford for many years - great food, great service...after a one year break we couldn't wait to eat there again. An alfresco dinner between 2 plays what could be better than that? I guess everything. Flies loved it, we were appalled by the service, food quality and presentation. Escargo, duck confit, lobster...

Had a delightful lunch on the patio. Josh handled our reservation with panache and efficiency. They do not take reservations for the patio so ours were for inside. We were lucky enough to be seated outside. The food was delicious, innovative, and well served. I would highly recommend this restaurant and will return as often as possible.

Just went for a couple drinks and appetizers after the theatre. Great service! Be sure to visit here as it was a very relaxing atmosphere and nice for my boyfriend and I. Very beautiful restaurant and great menu.

Very good meal after a matinee performance. We sat outdoors on a sunny evening and enjoyed the experience. Food was excellent and the service was very good. Would have loved to have had dessert because they looked outrageous! But we deferred. Oh well.

This is a very good restaurant, it is huge so not really what we expected, but still we had a very good experience. The service was very good and they have a wide variety of options to choose from. The wine list has offerings from all around the world as well as options from Canada. The prices are very fair... More

One block away from the Theater. Took a group of 50 people to the restaurant... in a separate room and served buffet lunch. Buffet was set up in the corner and I think would have been better along the front of the room which was unused space. The tables were set too close together and made it difficult to access... More

We were able to walk in without a reservation. The grilled salmon was delicious. They had a nice variety on their menu. The portions were just right as we are not big eaters. Our server was very attentive.

The special Salad featured warm asparagas, yellow beets, radish, cherry tomatoes on a bed of endive with a goat cheese and balsamic dressing. Outstanding. The mushroom ravioli was very tasty and the Pavlov (for which we went) my wife claimed was the best she has had. The decor was warm with a London feel to it. The service was very... More
