Visited Bijou this past weekend and was not disappointed at all. We sat in the front and it was definitely nice and cool. We had the Heirloom Tomato salad and the beet salad with kale. Both very tasty and great seasoning. Even the kale was tasty and did not taste like paper as it sometimes does. Very happy with this.... More

Shortly after 5 pm, this restaurant was inundated with patrons served by very capable servers. I was not disappointed by my choice of lamb. Much of the food is sourced locally. Check the online menu. There is a rear entrance (see attached pic) to this restaurant from a large parking lot.

My wife and I both enjoyed the presentation and tastes of our dinners at Bijou. However, we were stunned at how little food was actually served. I had the Venison Carpaccio, which was delicious. But there were 6 dime-sized, paper-thin pieces of venison, not even enough for an amuse bouche. Then I had the beef tenderloin, again perfectly cooked. But... More

We try to eat here once per visit. The menus are now printed and handed to you (blackboard is still there for the old timers ). There is now a 2nd entrance on Wellington to complement the original entrance on Erie. The food and service is always great. This is a very special experience.

Great dining experience at a lovely restaurant. The food was excellent. The service was very friendly and attentive. (Would have appreciated a greater selection of Ontario wines.) Will visit again for certain.

This was for years one of our favorite restaurants (ok, our actual #1 favorite restaurant) in Stratford. Our nephew, who went to cooking school in Stratford knew ex-owner / chefs and recommended it years ago; since then, we've made a yearly (or sometimes twice-yearly) pilgrimage, and were never disappointed. Until now. A few years ago, the owners left the restaurant... More

Dining at the Bijou was a true culinary experience. We enjoyed every moment of the evening. Arriving just as the show crowd was leaving afforded us the opportunity to select where we wanted to sit and to take our time. Our waitress, Linda, understood and never rushed us. We opted for the 3 course fixed price menu. Tapas are also... More

We had a delicious dinner last night, however, when I left for the washroom, our main course was served - even though I wasn't there AND before we had our wine or starter course. It took 5 minutes for her to return. She took the plates from our table - & moved them to the next table where they were... More

Did a pre-theatre dinner. Selection on the three course menu were varied and all sounded great. The selections we made were delicious (especially the cheesecake!) Also had a nice selection of wines to pair with the meals. Highlight of the experience were the staff who we attentive, friendly and professional. Will return!
