We all enjoyed brunch and the food was delicious. We sat inside because we thought it would be warmer but it was quite cold and we ended up wearing jackets.

If you order the burger it is very good, but the other dishes need work. I had the special bbq burger and loved it, but my daughter had the pear balsamic pizza and it was overloaded with balsamic to the point it was not worth eating. My wife had the vegetable pasta, and it was also not very good. Having said that, our server Katie was awesome, and its a cool neighborhood place, so we would definitely go back.

We came here for brunch on Sunday. It was petty clear that breakfast food was not a strong suit here. Our eggs were all over cooked, and the breakfast potatoes were over fried. The bacon was a highlight, but this isn’t a place we plan on returning to for breakfast anytime soon.

It is a fine spot for quick, local dinner. The food is just so so. The french dip meat was tough and the pizza could have been cooked a little more.

The patio space is really quaint, so until it gets too cold I'd recommend sitting outside. The Proper burger is particularly tasty, and the fish and chips were good. The breading for the fish was crisp and light. A great neighborhood spot.

The food was really good. We started with the fancy frites and were not disappointed. I had the French dip, my wife had the tortellini with salmon, and my son had the beef bourguignon. Outstanding. We’ll be back.

This was our first time at Stratford. We walked up to find a great outdoor seating area that was perfect for our early dinner plans. The wait staff was extremely attentive even though he said it was only his 2nd shift. We loved the menu options. We opted for a French 75 and a High West Whiskey & diet coke to start off our dinner. PLEASE PLEASE order the Kung Pao Mushrooms for your appetizer as you will be pleasantly surprised how tasty these are! Also, their fries are plentiful and with great sauces.

My husband ordered the sweet and spicy pizza which was delicious and flavorful. I ordered plain cheese. This is the only downfall is that the pizza was incredibly thin crust and was so flimsy you could not pick up with your hands. Very little cheese and mostly crust. I would opt for something different next time. Still, we appreciated being able to bring in our own bottle of wine for a corking fee. We will definitely be back and experiment with other menu items!

My only complaint was the fact that their tap lines were frozen so no draft beer (part of the reason I choose this restaurant...mixed drinks were good, street corn excellent and the burger and pizza we had were top notch.

It’s had a nice outdoor seating area and the wait staff was professional and nice. Unfortunately, the food wasn’t very good. Salads were lackluster, very plain. The pear + pizza didn’t taste like anything. Probably won’t visit again.

The breakfast pizza was really good but I was rather disappointed that the eggs benedict had no meat on it just eggs and tomato. Also, the second cocktail I ordered didn't taste right and instead of offering to have it remade the waitress argued and just brought some hot sauce. It still didn't taste right but I didn't feel like arguing with her about what my drink tasted like to me.
