Great food & service. Tuna appetizer was wonderful. Everything was not too heavy and delicious
Excellent atmosphere, exceptional service and perfectly prepared meals. Will definitely return.
I found it expensive
Delicious meal and lovely attentive service. Only wish we had thought to ask for a seat in the back dining room. We were seated towards the front and while nice, it does not have nearly the same ambiance as the back room. Still a wonderful evening overall, we will be back!
Excellent food and service. Nice updated use of a historic house. We had been at the old Prune under previous owners. The new Prune was even better. Definitely worth getting reservations whenever in Stratford
Fantastic service. We took advantage of the wine pairing and did not regret it. Our server was very knowledgable and made perfect pairing. Our meals were outstanding–delicious and fresh. I would return for the bread alone! The dining room was full, still ambience was tranquil, owing largely to the big windows that look out over the garden. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening, will definitely return and would not hesitate to recommend this restaurant to friends.
Always our favourite restaurant when visiting Stratford. Innovative dishes, and all the extra touches made the evening an exceptional experience. For the first time we also ordered the side of bread. After alternating between the fluffy butter and the balsamic vinegar with chicken drippings, I only wished I had ordered this a long time ago. Try the wine pairings. Well worth it.
Good but way overpriced for what is actually served.
Everything was outstanding!
Loved it and will be back.
A lovely evening.
Server was attentive, not over bearing.
Pace of meal spot on.
I started with a gin martini which was excellent - just the way I make my own. My choice of entree was the ravioli served with mushrooms. It was very tasty and the serving size was perfect. I have a hearing deficit and found it difficult to have a conversation with my friend during the meal even though I wear an aid. But I am resigned, knowing that there is only so much a restaurant can do to circumvent this problem. I could see your enclosed garden as I ate, a peaceful and beautiful view. Thank you for being part of another excellent Festival experience, something I've enjoyed since 1960 when my parents first took their five children to see plays and enjoy concerts.
Everything was absolutely fantastic!!! As an alumni it was everything to be expected from such a talented kitchen team.
Très beau restaurant. Les plats sont savoureux et particulièrement bien équilibrés.
We hadn't been to the Prune for years due to some disappointing experiences.
Having viewed the menu, we decided to give it another shot.
We were more than rewarded. The ambience had been updated and the room
was attractive with understated decor. Service was friendly and knowledgeable
as to the offerings and their prep.
But the food was the star. Our party of three was more than satisfied from the appetizers,
the excellent spring vegetable soup and especially the cheese ravioli with green peas
and morel mushrooms. The favor of all the ingredients complimented each other and the plate
was delicate and very tasty. I thought the plate a bit pricey but rationalized it by a significant presence of the morels. Also, having dined at two other Stratford 4 star restaurants,
the influence of the Stratford Cooking School was clearly evident at all the venues and needs to be
experienced by lovers of truly fine cuisine.
The food was exquisite. Our server and all staff were exceptional. High marks for understanding tea.
We had a spectacular meal at Prune. The cuttlefish salad and salmon were standouts. This was our best meal in Stratford on this trip and we will be back next year.
A lovely restaurant offering fine food served graciously by friendly wait staff.
There’s no place as nice in Stratford. I wish I could afford to go more often.
Excellent food and service. Best in Stratford by far. Only criticism is the main course could be warmer or served on a warm plate. Wine choice varied. Definitely would go back
Our experience at The Old Prune this past Friday was exceptional from every perspective. The initial convenience of being able to reserve a table on-line was appreciated, as was the call from the restaurant manager prior to our visit inquiring whether we had any dietary restrictions. Once at the restaurant, the magic started ... right from the greeting at the restaurant entrance, the attentiveness and professionalism of the wait staff throughout our visit and especially the incredible food. We opted for the 4 course meal and marveled at its extraordinary preparation and presentation. Huge kudos to the chef! And a very special thank you to Tony who looked after our every need, answered all of our questions, and guided us through the menu options. We will definitely be returning to The Old Prune as soon as we can organize another trip to Stratford. Thanks so much once again to everyone at The Old Prune for a wonderful meal!
Excellent food. Service great. We had visited Prune many years ago. The food has maintained it’s quality
This was a return visit. Food is excellent. Examples: green pea ravioli, duck liver pate, salmon. Service is very friendly
The best place to eat in Stratford! Staff is knowledgeable and the kitchen is able to work with dietary issues.
One of the best dining experiences I have enjoyed in a long while. Superior ratings in all categories. I cannot imagine not dining at The Prune when in Stratford!
Well done and memorable
A wonderful place for special occasions. The food was expertly prepared, the service very knowledgeable and friendly. Not to be missed if you are visiting Stratford.
My daughter and I went for a pre-show dinner. There was a bus load of seniors and we definitely were put on the back burner the entire time and our server made us late for our show. Water wasn’t refilled and there was a 20 minute stretch after completing each course. For the price the service was deplorable the main was the only good thing. My dessert tasted like a grocery store pre-made cheesecake, which I left without eating.
We had to wait a very long time for the food, probably because we were not going to a show that evening. But it was really too long (over 1/2 hour for the appetizer). The appetizer was excellent--the cuttlefish salad. The entree of wild salmon had a very interesting sauce, but the fish itself was dry, probably because it had been previously frozen. For such an expensive restaurant, the main course should be excellent. The desserts were very good (chocolate and strawberry). And the little treat that came with the bill was a tasty surprise. Altogether, dining was a mixed experience.
The Prune is consistently great. My favourite Stratford restaurant.
Great food! Space is small so voices are louder than I might have hoped!
We were very well served, food was excellent and we enjoyed our dinner very much!
Food is amazing - servers friendly - nice for a special occasion
The meal was wonderful. Of all the great meals I had in Stratford, this was the best. The pairing of the different foods, made you savor every bite. They should bottle their cocktail sauce. One caution, the restaurant is not very accessible, if you have difficulty with mobility.
The Prune is an excellent restaurant to visit in the heart of Stratford. The dining area is beautifully appointed. The service at this restaurant is very attentive. The menu offers a lot of variety and the food is creatively presented. This restaurant takes advantage of locally grown produce and meat. The Prune has always been very good value for the money.
Have been wanting to eat at the Prune for a long time and we were not disappointed. There were a lot of staff but they were not intrusive. Staff share the service of food and drinks so your needs as diners are always met. Our main server was knowledgeable about the menu and wine to pair with our meal.
Food....”to die for”. Portions were perfect for us( not too large to be full before the next course) and taste/flavours were delightful. The two desserts we had - chocolate something with olive oil ice cream and a strawberry cake were really, really good. I don’t like to eat dessert unless is is worth the calories ( so it must taste wonderful) and these desserts were worth those calories.
We ate in the Garden room at the back of the restaurant which is bright with a great view of the back garden. I would ask for that spot again.
The Prune is expensive but the food and service are worth it. We were ahead of the rest of our party and reservation, arriving 30 minutes before opening, and were still attended to graciously by Regan. While portions were petite, the presentation and flavors...lovely. Close attention was paid to the allergy of one in our party, with accommodations easily met. The setting is romantic; I am eager to return with just my spouse, but the experience certainly wasn't wasted on our 14 year old granddaughter.
Lovely calm dining room. Well paced service. Interesting tasty meal.
After-theatre Dinner, everything was wonderful.
I have been to the Prune a number of times. The food and service is always excellent
We came because of a friends recommendation, and we loved it. Everything was great!
Creative dishes, excellent preparation. Service staff is knowledgeable and attentive.
As always, the food was inventive and the service impeccable.
