I was here last year for dinner and noticed that the restaurant needed an update on the paint and décor. It has been changed since then and looks newer and inviting to dine. Laurie , our hostess and server was excellent. she describes the specials in such a professional way that makes you want to order everything offered. we tried the chicken linguine and the sauce that it featured was buttery and rich. This restaurant is across from Rhea Thomson's chocolate store and steps from the Avon theatre. Lots of parking nearby too! Laurie and the kitchen staff insured us of an enjoyable dinner.

we gave this place another chance, but is worse than last year. The menu is very short, though the pizzas looked good The Ginger salmon was undercooked, very bland and came with what tasted like sweet ginger. It came with a small amount of veggies, cut in large pieces and not well roasted. We ordered dessert as we were still hungry. The chocolate cake was fine, but it came garnished with one dead and one drooping mint leaf. Very unappetising. The kitchen looked chaotic. Service was fairly prompt, but we were almost alone at the time.

We were lucky enough to get squeezed in between seatings right before the theater. The staff was very understanding and accommodating. My friend experienced some stomach troubles and wasn’t able to eat after she had ordered her meal so they cancelled the meal and took very good care of her. My meal was very tasty and they had a lot of good things on the menu that I will go back and try .

We were lucky enough to have Cass serving us or this review would have been one-star. Out of 5 items ordered, only one was great.

We ordered shrimp in phyllo pastry and it came raw with the phyllo detached from the shrimp (??). Asked Cass to send it back to the kitchen for a little more cooking: "No problem!". When it hadn't come back 10 minutes later, she offered to comp the dish. It finally showed up, in its phyllo, but wasn't really worth the wait.

Two of our party had pizzas - the Jamaican Jerk Chicken and the Spinach+Feta. Great crusts and the Jerk pizza was delicious - spicy hot - but the Spinach+Feta was just okay. They need to use a stronger feta. The Thai noodles were a gluteny mess - more like thick cream of mushroom soup - and had no real flavour. The Caesar Salad was fine - nothing to write home about.

What made our dinner palatable were the cheerful interactions with Cass - they are lucky to have her.

My wife and I discovered the Annex Room Restaurant while visiting the Stratford Festival - it has become one of our favorite places. The decor is understated; the food and service are outstanding. We tried their grilled salmon with a homemade ginger marmalade - a truly great mix of flavors, combined their Thai salad and for desert, a rhubarb crisp. The restaurant has a wonderful wine list and our server gave us great recommendations. Everything about the meal was perfect!
