Food was good but over priced. Nice view and good service. My husband is living with a serious cancer diagnosis. Was hoping for a better experience .

Atmosphere is tasteful, a little theatrical with unique wall masks and elegant architectural nuance. Of course the food is spectacular and served with conscientious flare. A fine wine selection is available with knowledgeable assistance from the staff. Cheers!

I love Rundles and will miss it so. I am always greeted and treated respectfully, something a lone woman diner doesn't always receive in other dining establishments. The ambience is of quiet elegance. Every table is set with crisp linens and gleaming glasses and cutlery....More

The always fresh dishes are artfully assembled using very fresh ingredients. The owners affiliation with the Stratford Culinary school is no surprise. Ambiance is also wonderful. Fine dining as represented by Rundles is worth a special trip.

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.
