    Jake the waiter needs some help. Despite having a reservation, we watched people who arrived after us on the other side of the restaurant get their meals before we even saw our waiter. Took 45 minutes to get our drinks. The food was delicious though and came out very quickly after ordering. Kitchen is phenomenal.

    They have changed their menu and there aren’t as many choices. The food is overpriced for what you get. The outside patio is nicely covered.

    Our server arrived at our table 15 minutes after we were sat. Our first course food arrived to our table 45 minutes after we ordered. We had no utensils. Our drinks were slow. The patio was lovely but I don’t think we will go out of our way to go back.

    This is such a fun place. Our server was helpful, fun, and allowed us to create a new drink. We came for a girls' evening having drinks and desserts. We ordered three and they were all wonderful. I can't wait to go back for dinner!

    The service was good but the food was a little underwhelming. We got the special burrito for $17 and it was just overpriced. The rice was mushy and the flavors were good but not great. The lemon custard was soupy and undercooked. We did go later in the evening so maybe it was just too late. I will definitely go back because the fancy frites and burger were exceptional and worth every penny.

    I love Stratford Proper - it is my neighborhood bistro and I have never had a bad meal there until last night. Food took a very long time to come out even though they were not that busy. When my risotto was placed in front of me, it was basically a large sticky mass of well cooked rice. The mushrooms were tough. I politely sent it back and told the waiter that is not risotto and ordered the Caesar salad which I received as my friends were finishing their meals, which thcy said were fine. What I received was the arugula salad with chicken - it was good, but it was not what I ordered. I hope this was a one-off bad night for the place.

    Great little restaurant nestled in a quiet neighborhood. Ambience was a little loud, but would probably be nice in warm weather on the patio. The carbonara was great, the Kung Pao cauliflower is a must try

    Lovely evening overall. Loved the sound of the rain on the tent! There are only two slight negatives I will address. The first is that it didn't seem like the heating mechanism in the tent was sufficient to warm the space. It was a touch cold. The second is that we were there on a TUE night, it was not terribly busy, our server did seem to disappear for pretty long periods, and for a slow night it took a long time to get two drinks and our food order. But I'm admittedly being a bit nitpicky here. I liked it, and want to try other things on the menu.

    Celebrated my sister in law’s birthday and the food was exceptional but our service was terrible. The server came to our table one time to take our order and that’s it. Our food was dropped off by the hostess. One of the orders was wrong and we had to hunt down our server every time we needed something, including the check. We would find her hanging out between the host table and the kitchen chatting with her coworkers instead of doing her job.
