Being vegetarian I was more than delighted to see that most Stratford restaurants offer veggie options. Foster's offered a zucchini linguine dish and a red bean based burger. I chose the burger and fries. Very good! The service (Ang) was awesome. Make a reservation on the weekends during the summer - it was packed.

A great ,funky restaurant. The service is great and the menu is varied. The pasta and clam is great! The calamari melt in your mouth. Its nice to sit and have a relaxed meal in such a vibrant spot.

We really enjoy the fine dining at Fosters Inn when we stay in Straford - and at Fosters Inn. We had an excellent pre theater dinner, just perfectly done steaks with bearnaise and lovely fresh vegetables. They specialize in steaks, but the other offerings looked good. Attentive service. Great location near Avon theater, perfect location if you are staying in... More

We had a friends' reunion brunch here at the suggestion of a friend who is an artist connected to the Stratford Festival and since the other Festival artist friends who joined my wife and me for the meal concurred, we figured that we couldn't go too far wrong. The dining room and adjoining bar area are quite cozy with a... More

A group of friends went here for dinner one Wednesday evening after the theatre crowd had left. The service was poor and sporadic at best. The restaurant was not overly crowded and there appeared to be sufficient wait staff. Despite the high ceilings in the restaurant it was very, very noisy. We barely could hear others at our table. That... More

Foster's is a lovely restaurant. The wait-staff is pleasant and helpful. The food is great. Last year there were flies everywhere, and it ruined our experience. Last week, there was only one fly flying around our table and our food, a marked improvement. But this time there were tiny flying bugs flying around our food. Very annoying. The management should...

We went here at noon on a Sunday so the place was quite busy however we were given a table and our order taken within 10 minutes. Then we waited 40minutes for our food to arrive. The steak on my steak sandwich was overcooked and so fatty that I was unable to get the knife through it. For a restaurant... More

Foster's specializes in meat dishes. Seating is limited and the wait staff do their best. There is additional seating in the bar area and outside. I was one, so the recommendation was I sit either in the bar or outside. Outside was just fine. Tables a bit small but the evening was warm and there was a breeze. I selected... More

We timed it so the Theatre Crowd would be gone so it was quiet and restful. I would definitely go there again. The service was excellent (I eat more slowly than my partner but the server did not take his plate until I was finished - that impressed me. It is a courtesy that even many top restaurants do not...
