I just treated my friend to a birthday breakfast at the Bruce. It has become our go to place for special occasions. Our server, Leisal, is so friendly and very knowledgeable about the food that is served.
The Bruce is a gem.
Impeccable service and food! Amazing attention to details and staff that went above and beyond our expectations. It’s with the cheese tray was fabulous., the sommelier outstanding, totally elegant and one of a kind evening. It’s no wonder the Bruce Hitelis in the top 10 in Canada! So fortunate to have e them in Stratford, Ont.
We enjoyed our brunch with a few exceptions. My husband was offered a coffee refill but I was not. The Eggs Benedict looked terrible. When I made my reservation on line with Open Table, it was stated that the cost included a tip and tax. When I paid the bill, I discovered that this was only included if you bought the complete package of hotel and brunch. I would have liked to know exactly the situation before paying. The prawns were wonderful as were the croissants and a nice selection of cheese. I noted when I made the reservation that one in our party was a gluten free guest and the other had an allergy to poultry. There were some lovely desserts but just fruit for the gluten free. I noted this to one of the servers and they brought me a serving of sorbet. It would have been nice to have a serving of flourless chocolate cake or something similar. I had the tenderloin roast but it was tough. We usually enjoy our visits to The Bruce but not so this time. However, the smoked salmon was wonderful! MildredR
I will always recommend The Bruce Hotel Restaurant to anyone looking for excellent food and an experience, no matter the occasion. The Bruce Hotel is the full-package experience thanks to the joint effort of the FOH staff and chefs.
Great evening and dinner. Lovely atmosphere wonderful food, wine and service,
Well, it never disappoints. The Bruce was lovely for brunch again today. The Mickey Mouse pancake for our son was a sweet surprise as was the chance to visit with Santa! We will be back again soon!
Myself and three friends had lunch at The Bruce Hotel this past weekend and cannot say enough good things about it. The food was delicious (everyone loved their various options), the charcuterie board was lovely, and our server was great. For a special occasion, you should definitely go!
Simply outstanding. Room was fantastic. Issue w shower knob. Too tight to turn on/off. Excellent service. Would highly recommend.
We were there in summer and enjoyed being outdoors more so than inside. The food was ok but not outstanding selection for a casual lunch and this was new menu. My friend who is GF found that the kitchen did not listen to her requests. Love the boutique hotel atmosphere and will go back just not a great experience this time.
Virtually empty - 0ne other table when we arrived, two when we left. Food good but not superb. Service haphazard, at one point very good, at another, a vacuum.
But then the pricing- out of this world. Wine pricing in particular was outrageous; my wife ordered a glass of Pinot which came from a screw stoppered bottle (at $C 14 per glass) and which may have been opened some years earlier. 9When i pointed this out it was quickly replaced.
Wonderful location, steps from the Festival Theatre, but requires new management
