Ontario is brimming with cool and unusual restaurants that elevate the dining experience beyond just the gustatory and olfactory sensations. One restaurant in particular not only serves spectacular dishes, but also provides a truly unique setting that must be experienced at least once.
Revival House is an incredible dining space that was once a beautiful historic cathedral. Located in Stratford, one of Ontario's prettiest towns, the restaurant is a fusion of antique elements and modern design. The building is divided into three separate sections - Revival, which is a dedicate dining and special events space, Belfry, which is a chill upstairs gastrolounge, and Confession, which is "Stratford's VIP hideaway" according to the website
The venue is available for several events, including dining and tête-à-têtes, weddings, receptions, concerts, dinner shows, tour groups and private functions. It is also one of Stratford's best live music venues, with its great acoustics and sightlines.
A local team of chefs led by culinary wiz Loreena Miller prepares French-inspired dishes using local, seasonal and house-made ingredients. Enjoy appetizers like fresh shucked oysters and baked camembert, entrees like pappardelle ratatouille and duck confit, and desserts like chocolate s'mores and blackcurrant with champagne.
Speaking of champagne, Revival House is also equipped with a full-sized bar that serves some really unique and hard-to-find drinks. VQA wines, craft and microbrews, and local spirits are all available.
Due to the high frequency of visitors, the venue operates on a reservation basis. Please visit the Revival House website for more details.
