The setting is typical Stratford. The staff provide outstanding service and the food is well prepared and tastes extraordinary. I had the lamb and it just melted in your mouth. The wine list is comprehensive but limited in options. l

We have loved this consistently excellent restraint for 20 years. It is expensive, but well worth it. The service is wonderful, the ambiance is lovely. We look forward to coming every year!

Even with a reservation had to wait for the table. Very slow service between courses. The food was overall good but not great and certainly worth the prices.

Rundle's, for years one of the best, perhaps the best, restaurant in Stratford will be closing its doors soon. We must hope that something very much like it comes to occupy the very attractive space. The meals are costly but are mostly worth the expense....More

We wanted to try it before it closes. Overall, we were very happy. The setting, the view, and the food were amazing. Staff did their best to help us catch the theatre, without feeling rushed. Glad that we tried that amazing place.

We went to the restaurant prior to a theatre visit and were not disappointed - quite the contrary. Food was marvelous - I love that focus is on quality instead of quantity. So hard to find that these days. And I was full after the...More

This review will soon be dated, because the owner is soon to retire and with him, perhaps, the restaurant. That said, Rundle 's has maintained very high standards for 40 years, with prices to match. But "match" is the word, for the food is worth...More

Description
(41st SEASON OF RUNDLES: MAY 26 TO SEPTEMBER 23, 2017.) "On the bank of the River Avon, Rundles is an idyllic spot for pre-theatre dining in Stratford. The room, all grey cement and pale wood, feels like a Mies van der Rohe-designed spa. Chef Neil Baxter, who's been head chef since 1981, has a flair for the dramatic, in a good way. The tender poached lobster with salmon roe, cubed cucumber, yuzu jelly and dill oil sparkles like a mosaic of multicoloured sea glass and tastes bright and clean. Flawless panfried rib-eye showcases classic training and finesse. At the end of the meal, the server suggests "the famous lemon tart." The bruleed concoction, studded with toasted pistachios and sided with smooth orange sorbet, lives up to its recommendation." (Toronto Life) Pre-theatre seating times: 5, 5:15, 5:30, 5:45, or 6 pm. Late dinner seating available after. Closed: Monday.
