We booked spur of the moment and the reviews for The Prune were good. We stayed at a B&B in Stratford and the inn keeper said it was 'the best restaurant in Stratford', so we were really looking forward to trying it. The menu pricing is interesting - $55 for 2 courses, $69 for 3 and $79 for 4. We... More

Although we had a large party, everyone was happy with their cocktails and two-course dinners. Each selection was unusually well-prepared as were the desserts that were shared.

What to to do when you go out to an unknown, high end restaurant, and you have serious forebodings? Do what I did: ignore them. I did that and found the Prune to be an enchanting and delightful place! Prepare to spend some money, but also prepare to be treated! Hostess Shelley was friendly and responsive. Our waitress, Emily, whom... More

If you have a special occasion to celebrate this is the restaurant for you. The food is amazing. The staff are very attentive. The chef creates beautiful dishes that taste as good as they look. I was lucky to celebrate my birthday here with friends. The best steak I ever had. I will definatly come back.

Warm welcome, friendly and competent service, very nice food. Small but well thought out menu, appealing options for each course. Modified prix fixe approach (price is based on how many courses you have rather than varying by specific item) is nice, and price/value relationship is good. Desserts in particular were a pleasant surprise.

To be fair, The Prune is not cheap and the portions are small. Your entree is just the main item mentioned. Anything else in the description is garnish. So, if you want to feel full, consider adding side orders to your meal. And accept the offer of bread. We did not. The menu is limited. And you order 2, 3,... More
