I visited Bijou in May of 2016. My first visit was in the summer of 2012 when it had a different ownership. We were all impressed in 2012 so decided to go again on a sisters' reunion trip to Stratford in May. We all enjoyed the food but were absolutely shocked by the paucity of food on the plates. We...

Quite possibly the best restaurant experience I have ever had, I felt compelled to share! The potato and leek soup is fantastic, whoever made that in the kitchen is a keeper. The entrees and dessert make you wish you had more room in your stomach to try more things, but I suppose that's why you should come back. I had... More

Bijou is our go-to "fine-dining" experience every year when we spend a day or two in Stratford. There's been an ownership change since my last review (2013), but Bijou remains at the top of its game. The menu is simple -- a three course prix fixe dinner, with appetizer, entrée and dessert. Apps and entrees give you a choice of... More

AT 7:00, bijou offers small plates that are well prepared, interesting and food that we did not see anywhere else in Stratford. Fresh, local ingredients combined to produce big flavors. For example, I had a stack of potato pancakes interspersed with artic char, then topped with a maple butter sauce.The sauce was terrific and something I never would have thought... More

This is a combination of experiences from three visits. The restaurant is small, (reservations required for your well-being) the food, much local, very good with excellent service. Parking just a few yards away. The food was always excellent but prices are on the high side. The experience is such that you do not want to run away so I'd suggest... More

We've enjoyed the Bijou since it first opened its doors many years ago. They now have different owners that continue the tradition of a unique menu. There is a choice (after 7:30) to either choose small plates or 3 course meals. We chose the small plates and enjoyed an excellent gazpacho and veal dishes. The cheese dish had just 3... More
