Have not been to Julia's for s number of years and won't be back. Reading a number of reviews may have been a bad night but....calamari was beyond chewy and not hot, bruschetta was presented a put together yourself. Tomato topping was ice cold, not much slivered parmasen cheese and of course the crostini was then just dry and brittle.... More

We hadn't been here in a couple of years ,and decided to return. Happy we did. Maybe it was the lovely weather, the other adult patrons, the lovely student wait staff ... Maybe all three. Definitely , it was the food. Don't write any reviews until I have been anywhere a few times. The food was glorious. Quinoa and black... More

This is one of my favourite restuarants in downtown Oakville. Sometimes I go for a glass of Sangria, other times for drinks/snacks and sometimes for dinner. I'm never disappointed with the food or the service. Their white sangria is one of my favourites--white wine, white grape juice, grapefruit soda, peach schnapps, brandy, peaches and mixed berries. Light, refreshing and tasty!... More

Four of us dined on the patio for dinner last week. The restaurant was very busy but we were impressed with the timing of the food and the service. Very warm and friendly staff. Highlights included the Jerk Duck, the Seafood Linguine, the Calamari and the cheesecake. Great wine as well.

Last night 6 of us went for dinner. Four of us order paella, which claims to be the house specialty. It tasted like frozen peas and carrots mixed into boiled rice with 4 slices of tasteless sausage and bone dry chicken pieces. One person ordered penne al fredo, also very dry. When they asked for some additional Alfredo sauce, I... More

My partner and I went to Julia's on last Friday night for a late dinner. We were seated on their Lakeshore Patio on a beautiful evening, one of the few nice patios in the area. We shared the guacamole appetizer which I have had before but was just as delicious as I have come to expect. We both ordered Julia's... More

We were walking downtown Oakville and decided to go to Julia's and sit on their patio. We haven't been there in 9 years because of previous experiences at Julia's and their sister restaurant- Ritorno (the most expensive and small garlic bread ever!!!!). So we decided to give it another try. We were 3 adults and 2 kids. We were seated... More

I have been to Julia's before and it was decent (guacamole and one of the soups - tasty but not extraordinary). This time, I was pretty disappointed. I ordered the chorizo hash (brunch menu). It was not flavourful and the potatoes should have been cooked more. Service was lacking as well. We waited about an hour for our 3 dishes.
