We made a reservation at the Parlour for early dinner. There is a choice of different rooms to be seated in. Your enjoyment will probably be enhanced if you pick the right room. Some are quiet and well lit, some are adjacent to the bar which can be spirited.

We've visited this restaurant many times over the years and find it to be reliable. The food is well cooked, interesting, and you can get prime rib roast virtually all the time. There have always been specials when we visited. The service was very good and we've always experienced this. Our food came in a timely fashion and was as ordered and cooked to our taste. We were taken care of, but not rushed. It was a pleasure to eat here.

We were there before the theatre crowd, it's often much busier closer to show time. We will continue to go to this restaurant. While the food isn't the fanciest in Stratford, it's reliable, well prepared and served with a smile. We recommend this restaurant for anybody looking for value at reasonable prices.

Easy to book reservations online. They even sent reminders and thank you notes!

Friendly service and interesting, tasty food for a pre-theatre Sunday brunch. An eclectic menu. Everything we had was really good .... and a complimentary dessert because we mentioned it was our anniversary. I'd go back to The Parlour for sure.

The food, service, and atmosphere were all excellent. Be sure to try the pavlova for dessert.

I ate at the Parlour one night and had the Shrimp, Scallop, Mussels and it was sensational. Then I ate here again in the same week and had the Salmon Special with pureed potatoes and a corn relish--another real winner. Also we had superb wait staff each night.

I have eaten at THE PARLOUR several times this season and I am SO IMPRESSED.
Flatbread with Hot smoked salmon, capers, red onion & creme fraiche AND
Pancake stack, seared trout & maple brown butter. TO DIE FOR!
Seriously delicious and unique. Many items on the menu have asian influences perfectly executed.
Look past the stuffy/old fashioned interior and dig into the 'state of the art' menu. The staff is well trained and courteous and as I said the food ( and beverages) will satisfy any and all- including all you foodies.
