Stage Left in New Brunswick

Has anyone been here recently? I haven't been for a couple of years (enjoyed it then) and just about fell off my chair when I looked at their on-line menu. A lot more expensive than I remember and I don't see the prix fixe menus they used to have.

Thinking of going this week but would like some input from people who've been there in the last few months.

  1. Been there about a year ago for diinner, and a few times since for the bar menu. Food is still tops in my book, and the service is great too. I may be biased because it's also an emotional favorite - the first fancy restaurant I ever dined at after college, plus I worked at the theater next door, so spent many a night at the bar. But we still go for dinner when our budget allows.

    1. Also a big fan of the bar menu though I rarely get anything other than the burger!

      We've had dinner here twice in the past year. Both times were for a wine tasting event and both times the food (fixed menu) and service were excellent.

      Agree the dinner menu is pricey, but on par with other's in the area. Note, they still have a prix fixe menu ($99):

      1. I, too, am addicted to the burger, although we attended a wine dinner in the spring and everything was fantastic. Francis and Mark are still gettting it done after all these years. One slight beef, they now charge extra for the cheese and the bacon on the burger, I thought that was a little cheesey.

        1. Well, I think we've decided to go. Foody4life, I phoned the restaurant and was told they no longer do the prix fixe menus (there used to be two of them). However, they do have a tasting menu for $99 and I think this is what you're thinking of. For anyone interested in this, they do NOT serve the tasting menu pre-theatre.
