My girlfriend and I went there on their Friday night date night . The restaurant was empty apart from one other table of two. We ordered two medium rare steaks that came out rare so we had to send them back. As a chef I know the difference between rare and medium rare so to hear the chef say they were cooked perfectly angered me. The food was severely under seasoned and cold after they re cooked the steaks. Overall it was extremely dissapointed as we heard good things about this place and ended up spending $100 and left hungry.

They have some good meals on the menu. They also have a Date Night Menu which is a good value for two people. Service could be improved as there were few people there but took a long time to get water and drinks before ordering.

Stratford is in the agrarian belt of Canada and nothing could be nicer for lunch or supper before a show at this hip bar/bistro close to the theatre. Great organic produce which tastes as good as it sounds with a contemporary Canadian menu.
