The ambiance is classic. A sense of privacy is provided by establishing areas of isolation for a few tables separated by attractive barriers of polished wood and etched glass. The food and presentation is of a high standard and the wait staff is well informed and attentive. The result: a very relaxing and pleasant dining experience. Despite many tempting choices,... More

10th wedding anniversary getaway didn't disappoint at the Parlour. This was our first stay at the Parlour; the customer service was second to none with Shannon leading the way. The details in the room were great with a nice congratulations card, box of chocolates and rose for my wife. We had dinner and breakfast at the Parlour and both meals... More

Each year in August, my wife and I take my mother to Stratford to enjoy the festival and for the past three years we have chosen The Parlour for our supper. If the weather is conducive we sit out on the patio enjoy a cold beverage and then wander through the downtown returning to the restaurant to eat. My mother... More

Our one night stay at the Parlour Inn had to include dinner at The Parlour! We were mesmerized by the historic ambience of this gem. We had mentioned that we were celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary when we booked our stay at the Inn and all of the staff made it their mission to ensure that we felt their best... More

We had been here for dinner in the past but not yet for lunch. The menu is equally basic but the substance and and service unparalleled. Starting with the bread, served fresh (on a Sunday) with homemade pesto butter. The special was an heart warming Carrot and curry soup, delicious. The Rueben sandwich was honestly the best I ever had... More

I had some bad experience's in the past here with the poor service, however I ended up here again with some friends. Nothing has changed with the poor service with attitude! No bartender on the weekend? And the steak tasted like it was cooked in a micro-wave, not much of a steak house. Is Vintage Hotels actually running this establishment?... More

We had a post-theater dinner here on a Sunday evening in October. The place was reasonably busy, but there were a few tables available. We did have reservations, but it looked like walk-ins were being seated without issue. The food and service was certainly good. But for a place that bills itself as a steakhouse, I would have expected the... More

Our evening started out well but didn't continue that way. We had a 7:30 reservation. Water, drinks and bread & butter arrived in fairly timely manner. The same cannot be said for our entrees. It was after 9:00 when 2 entrees were delivered. At least 15 minutes later the remaining meals started coming out (by which time the 2 people... More
