Wow! Everything from apps to dessert was top notch and delicious! The creativity in food and presentation was amazing. We enjoyed every bite.

We’ve eaten at The Braai House before but tried The Alley tonight. Stylish reinvention of the room. The cocktails sounded a bit overwrought. Interesting beer selection, quite affordable. Appetizer spring rolls and brassica with tofu were very tasty. The mains were also good. Shared the...sticky toffee pudding for dessert- it would have benefited from ice cream or cream. Altogether a very nice evening. Music was quieter than upstairs too, more amenable to conversation.More

Thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at the Alley! The appetizers we chose were amazing, spring rolls and tuna ceviche. Service was outstanding! We will definitely be back!

My wife and I heard about Braai House and decided to visit while in Stratford for a show for our 26th anniversary. The entire experience at Braai was superb. The atmosphere was modern and comfortable. The music upbeat and jazzy but not intrusive. We received...sparkling wine as it was our anniversary which was a nice touch. Our server was excellent from start to finish with recommendations. We had the prix fix menu. My wife had shrimp starter, Cod for the main and Malva for dessert. I had the samasos, duck for the main, Malva for dessert. The presentation, taste, texture and portiowas all spot on. We would certainly visit again and highly recommend Braai House!More

Prix fixe menu includes great options and was decent value. Appetizers, mains and desserts were all well prepared and conceived.

Great food and wonderful staff…definitely a staple in our “date night” outings. Also a delicious variety of craft beer.

From start to finish we had a great dining experience. We chose the TASTING MENUE and it was delicious and unique. We sat at the chefs table and it was a pleasure to watch Julian, Patrick and Sage work their magic.

Once again it has been confirmed that this is my favorite restaurant. When you get a collection of first class chefs guided by a culinary director, all in one place you can’t believe how good the food is. We were treated to a 10 course...chefs selection that was truly over the top. Well done.More

This is a well appointed slightly upscale place with great modern decor. Based on the tradition of the South African Braii (barbeque), the menu has many dishes that are traditionally South African (influenced by both Afrikaaner and Indigenous cultures). traditional. We spent 5 years living...in RSA back in the 1980's, so this was a blast from our culinary past. The restaurant is above "Keystone Alley" - another pub/bar/resto. The Braai House has nice open ambiance with a large bar and a substantial back patio. We had the "Taste of the Braai" which is a mixed grill plate to share for two - sort of family style stone - help yourself - with flat iron steak with veggies. I thought the wine list from South Africa was a little under represented but we got a Brucejack Pinotage which was pretty good. Servers are professional, attentive, and engaging. The sous chef came by as well.More

I’ve only ever come to Braai with adults, but last night I brought my two young children. The staff made mock tails for them and let them watch their pizza being cooked. They accommodated slight menu adjustments and were so attentive and great with my...kids. Excellent food and service. Will certainly come back again-with adults or kids!More

Accessibility may be a problem. On the night we dined there we were led through a somewhat awkward outdoor set of stairs which were not many but a bit difficult due to the numerous others at the bar + perhaps awaiting... More

No,there is not an elevator although the owners have looked into this issue. The building itself does not lend itself to installing an elevator but I know they are open to any suggestions.
