“They put kettle chips on my salad”
Reviewed July 18, 2014

and it was delicious! Who knew? I was there with three other people and everyone loved their dinner. The wine list was full of really good Ontario wines, their bartender(s) make a great cocktail, the food was just inventive enough but still very comforting. We also stopped by on a Sunday night when it was industry night and enjoyed an evening of karaoke by all of the restaurant staff that kept wandering in as the night progressed. Lovely decor, really nice spot.

“Fabulous”
Reviewed July 18, 2014

We had discovered it last year and hoped it would be as good this year. We were not disappointed. Three of us had dinner (2 course fixed price is $48). Great tartare appetizer (with ancho chili-very creative), Wedge salad was great--beautifully dressed with a lovely blue cheese and buttermilk dressing. Cold cucumber soup with little chick-peas was great too.

For entrees we enjoyed hanger steak, porchetta, and duck leg. They were all really good, but the duck was the most memorable.

Think this is our new favorite Stratford restaurant.

“Excellent-Fun-Trendy Place”
Reviewed July 9, 2014

I'm all about ambiance so this place was great! The food was excellent and the atmosphere was great. They had an “industry night” when we were there which was so fun! Great people, great food.

“Awesome Chicken and Waffles!!”
Reviewed July 2, 2014

I went to this restaurant a couple of weeks ago and had the chicken and waffles. They were so good!! The chicken was crispy, flavourful and juicy. The waffles were fluffy on the inside and crisp on the outside. The service here was prompt and overall very enjoyable. Atmosphere is busy but not overwhelmingly loud, just a very good "buzz". Even though it is on the pricier end of Stratford I will be back ! :) DELICIOUS

“Perfect service”
Reviewed July 1, 2014 via mobile

Although we only stopped for a cool drink it was easy to see by the plates around us that this restaurant is fantastic. What impressed us most was our server - many stop the attention as soon as they realize that they won't be getting a big check. Our server redoubled her efforts and we had fun talking about Stratford with her. Next visit to Stratford we will definitely eat at Mercer Hall.
