Taste of Downtown Oakville!

We had a great experience during the Taste of Downtown Oakville at Julia's! Our waitress was fantastic - attentive, knowledgeable, and friendly. We all had the crab and salmon cake as an appetizer, the sweet potatoe salmon, and the bread pudding were all delicious! I love this restaurant and... read more

Terrible service, food very average. Mixed up our order and then basically told us that was unfortunate, but did not offer to fix or even discount price. Poor customer service, food came out at different times( there were 5 of us) and one person waited 15 minutes for their meal while rest of us done. Did not enjoy meal or... More

I don't usually bother to review restaurants, but Julia's was just so lovely. The food is fantastic, but it's really the warm, cheerful and professional service that makes this place great. Our waitress was really helpful and kept things moving at a nice pace (we didn't have to wait for anything, but nor did she make us feel rushed). The... More

This restaurant was so disappointing. The reviews on Trip Advisor were so positive, I was really looking forward to having lunch there. I had the Marisco Salad. The scallops were tough and rubbery, the crab cake filled with bread crumbs and the shrimp over cooked. It was awful, full stop. My husband had one of the pastas. The sauce was... More

We went here for lunch not knowing what to expect. We each had a bloody caesar to start and it was perfect. I had the spicy bean soup which was excellent and the tomato basil soup was sooo fresh tasting. The jerk duck tacos were delicious not dried out like sometimes duck tends to be. The cuban club sandwich also... More

Chef Julia Hanna has two restaurants in Oakville, and this one in the charming downtown area is the more ground-breaking of the two. There are delectable entrees from a variety of tropical countries that are artfully assembled and downright delicious. It is not super-expensive and there is lots of seating in a comfortable place of colourful ambience. The wait staff... More

I come here for their seafood salad. It has very generous portions of seafood, lovely dressing. It is a perfect lunch. The patio is a lovely spot in the summer. The table at the front by the window is a great spot when the weather is not as nice. Always get great service and a great meal. This is my... More
