Friends of ours invited us to this wonderful restaurant. We were a party of 9; they gave us the whole outdoors space (facing the street) - it was noisy but great to have the entire area to ourselves! We felt that the restaurant was ours! We loved our appetizers! The salmon and crab cakes were sublime; with a spicy twist!... More

Went there 3 times in the last month, sampling various dishes. All were interesting twists on Mexican dishes. I particularly liked their ceviche and their tuna taqueritos in the appetizer department, and their club sandwich and their seafood pasta (very tasty!). Service was efficient, sat on the patio all three times. If you can try to get a seat on... More

Banana Crusted mahi mahi sounded good. I didn't realize they would pulverize it. It was dryer than a skinless chicken breast. Much like the waitress.

A friend and I visited Oakville yesterday for the day and decided to do some shopping...we ended up eating at Julia's for lunch on a whim. Julia's Restaurant is quaint and beautiful. I had the turkey burger which was delicious! Our waitress was also very nice and she chatted with us for a bit. My friend enjoyed the homemade gnocchis... More

Worth going there.....be sure to book ahead if you want to sit inside. Very nice art work on display. On weekends the outdoor area is buzzing.

Stopped in last Saturday afternoon while doing some sidewalk shopping for the annual downtown Oakville sales event. We were greeted by a vibrant young woman at the door and seated on the patio. Couldn't get the sunny side but it was a nice and warm day anyhow. Menu is very Mexican/Latin...wasn't totally expecting that, I had mistakenly thought it was... More

I went to this restaurant today for a quick lunch. I asked to be seated on the patio and there I sat.. waited... waited. Not 3 en offered a drink after sitting there for 15 minutes. Just totally forgot about. I was recommended here by a friend and she raved about the food such a shame I never got to... More

I have to say that I had some good moments and some fair moments but will have to go with fair as an overall rating due to the way I left feeling the restaurant. We visited last night with a table of 12 people for a birthday celebration. Reservations were made ahead of time. Ambiance - was cheerful and I... More

This place is amazing. Cannot say enough good things about it. We went in after seeing a pitcher with fresh Sangria on a hot summer day. But fell in love with the food. The Sangria was nothing like we have ever had before. Quality ingredients with exceptional taste.

Julia is a great place to relax in a comfortable atmosphere and enjoy great food. Every time we come here the menu is tweaked just enough to leave the classics but also they entice you with new additions and specials.
