Good food with drinks and pleasant surroundings make an enjoyable time. We had a good Malbec and a Rendle's martini to start the evening; shared soup on a cold and snowy night; a pasta dish and a very tasty fried chicken entrée. Sadly I did not try the interesting desserts but I was too full. The bill was $97.00 +... More

The server was delightful, the food was delicious, and the atmosphere was clay and fun. It was a great dinner out for a birthday treat and located right downtown in Stratford.

My wife and I found Fosters quite by accident and had a great experience. The waiter did make a mistake with my order but it was all resolved very much to my satisfaction. We both had variations on eggs benedict, and both were delicious. We will be back and certainly look forward to the experience.

I went to Foster's for breakfast and liked the menu so much I couldn't decide between two similar options, so the lovely person attending suggested a great compromise which turned out to be superb. This version included homemade crab cakes on spinach with poached eggs and hollandaise on top with a side of avocado and tomato, I could just eat... More

They know their market. This is located near the Avon and the menu is not varied.. Good fish and meat. They are reliable and just a good place to have dinner. Good wine list.

Had another opportunity to enjoy Fosters Inn last week. Our family was in Stratford and got together for a light brunch...where better than Fosters?! Choosing from the "light options" my husband and I enjoyed the poached eggs on spinach with avocado slices and tomato slices. We added an order between us of their grilled bread, baked daily onsite and coffees.... More

Let me start by saying that my wife's meal was good. She ordered a zucchini linguine and was quite happy. Not so for my steak dinner. I ordered a tenderloin, medium rare, and it was brought to me blue-rare and cold. It was also more sinew (or silverskin) than meat. This was not "marbling". My knife wouldn't even cut through...

We've tried to eat at Foster's several times but always seemed to pick a time when it was closed. Finally we were successful. We have a quick and satisfying pre-theater lunch. Excellent service--the server immediately confirmed that we had a limited time and ensured that we were not late for our curtain. Wonderful food: my husband had the open faced... More

I had the sirloin steak dinner - and in the evenings they come with some 'roasted vegetables' The steak was amazing and the vegetables were to fresh - crunchy but cooked to perfection. - I don't know how they do that.- I am not a veggie eater - but would come back just to eat a plate of those amazing...
