Different but really entertaining ambiance...! You must visit this place opened on April 2012 and owned by a person from... read more

After our wonderful experience in August, we were really looking forward to the next "special occasion" to return and take some friends along. But when reservation time came last week, like an earlier reviewer, we were unable to reach them by phone (just rang) or e-mail. So, not to be daunted (Oakville is just too far from Hamilton to drive... More

Having recently enjoyed the hospitality of Pasquales, Cucci and Buca Di Bacco, I was really excited about making a reservation at 266 for my family. How sad that after repeated messages left (no one ever answers the phone) and an e-mail direct to the restaurant, we were completely ignored. We're going back to Pasquales, and we have to book my...

Me and my boyfriend were walking around downtown trying to find somewhere to eat. We have been to a lot of the restaurants and wanted to try something new. As we passed Venue 266, we barely noticed it, I had just glanced inside when a lady in the window (the windows open up to the sidewalk, and it was late... More

The kitchen is extremely competent. No surprises, just great execution. The room is lovely and the background music is perfect. BUT the treat is the wait staff. These people are waiting in the wings for their big chance. On our night there, 3 singers,one broadway show, one jazz, one opera. All stars. This was a very inexpensive date. So being... More

From the time I made the reservation through to the conclusion of a lovely dinner with family my experience with Venue 266 was a real treat. Last night was the perfect opportunity to check it out as it was my mother's 73rd birthday. We were greeted at the door by staff with big smiles and that carried on throughout the... More

I've now been to this restaurant three times for supper. Tried different things every time, and never been disappointed. First time, steak was outstanding, as good or better than the Keg. Second time was the best bouillabaisse I've ever had, period. Third was whole lobster, beautifully done and halved and with the claw meat already pulled out so I could... More

My husband stumbled on this place (under its first appearance) when he learned after all these years that I had a long-standing wish for lobster thermidor going back to a beach in Jamaica long before we'd even met. So he searched for a near-by restaurant and found one in Oakville. But it disappeared before we had a "special occasion" to... More

Went looking for a spot for a small celebration dinner, and stumbled onto this place. The food was delicious, using very fresh and mostly local ingredients. We were also pleasantly surprised by the number of choices that were (or were easily made) vegetarian. We had no idea that we'd be serenaded as we ate; in fact, that sort of thing... More

We had an outstanding meal at this beautiful restaurant. Our evening was enhanced by the wonderful performances by the staff (thanks Amanda, Marie and Dylan) as we sat by the open window and enjoyed the warm summer evening. The warm bread and olive tapenade set the stage for the rest of our meal. Both the caesar and beet and grape... More
