After many years of visiting Stratford, this was our first visit to The Prune. Our dinners were delicious, well prepared and excellent service. Our dinners were respectively chicken and duck, both were quite good.

Expensive and very very good. Top notch wait staff - food with attitude - but well deserved attitude. Fine dining in a country setting. What's not to admire.

Warm, intimate and conveniently located, the Prune is the best restaurant in Stratford.. Everything is fresh and locally sourced, and the wine list is varied and offers a wide range of options.Eschew the plays for one night, and dine after 8 for a relaxing and memorable evening.

This was by far our most favorite restaurant to date! The meals were extraordinary and service very special. The price is definitely at the high end of fine dining but well worth it.

It's been some time since we dined at what was then The Old Prune. Now just The Prune, the house is a real pleasure for dinner. We went after the pre-theatre rush when everything is just that much more relaxed in the quietly decorated main room. We had the four course menu and were very satisfied with every dish. Our...

You should eat here. Unless you are on a budget. One of the first in the fancy pants line of Stratford restaurants. We like it more than Rundles. Rundles has more of a posh atmosphere, the servings are equally small, and every seed and flake can be listed on both menus. The wine list is small, but I had a... More

This was one of our most enjoyable restaurant experiences in several years. The fixed price menu is great, allowing you to chose from many selections based on the number of courses you wish to enjoy. My wife and I had the salmon and duck, and both were deliciously prepared.

We dined at the Old Prune tonight and we're highly disappointed with the food and service. My husband and I both ordered the grilled sirloin for our main course and he ordered soup for his appetizer and I ordered the goat cheese tart.

We had dinner here recently for the first time in several years. I can't recall why we sort of stopped dining here, but based on our recent experience, we will definitely return.
