We enjoyed lunch here on a busy Saturday in December. The place is comfortable, welcoming, and pleasant. Interesting menu items, with smaller plates and main sized items too. Distinct Mexican flavours on some of the dishes. Innovative salads and sides. Enjoyed the tuna starter, and the pastas were fresh and yummy. Gracious service with a smile. We will definitely be...

Yesterday evening three of us had dinner at Julia's in Oakville, Ontario. We had been to this restaurant many years ago and had only pleasant memories. Sadly, the restaurant has not kept up. We should have known as soon as we came upon their patio at the entrance...it was dirty and kitschy looking. The service was good, however, the food... More

A Lovely Sunday Brunch at Julia's in Oakville, I loved it so much I went back the following week to try another menu item. It was so nice to have the same waiter both times, who was helpful making suggestions to tempt my pallet. My first visit choice - Salmón con Batata - (grainy Dijon & dill chimichurri|oven roasted tomato... More

Julia is an excellent Italian restaurant with a Latin twist. It is very nicely decorated, with more private areas and patio for the warmer days. The service is great: servers are extremely friendly and polite and the manager makes you feel like you are at home. There is a varied but the gnoquis are a must try as well as... More

Our friends in Oakville chose Julia's. Great choice. A short but varied menu with something for all tastes. Friendly and helpful staff in a relaxing atmosphere. We were the last to leave but there was no pressure.

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.
