We visited on a slow, rainy Wednesday evening, for drinks and a bite. The layout is "open kitchen" and the ambiance is rustic and cosy. The waitress mentioned that renovations were planned for Oct. 2015. The patio is always busy in good weather. Although we've drived by many times, this was our first visit. If you have been disappointed with... More

We hadn't been in years and gave it a try tonight. It was VERY enjoyable. Reasonable prices for the menu items and good wines at fair prices. The staff were welcoming, pleasant and accommodating. While it's not on the menu they gave us a 1/2 order of gnocchi as one of our appetizers. It was really wonderful - soft pillows... More

After walking around Lakeshore Road in the shops in Oakville we stopped in to have lunch at Julia. Enjoyed it very much. We sat inside but you can also eat outside! We had Ceasar salads with grilled chicken and it was very good! Nice inside and good service!

Always good service with charm and the right amount of attentiveness. The food is good, not exceptional but good wholesome food and at the right price point for its location. I enjoy their seafood options but wish there was a little variation on the menu occasionally. I love the fact the menu is small and balanced and that the kitchen... More

We went to Julia's for a late lunch and were able to getting seating at their outside patio. Be careful to pick the right table as a few are exposed to winds! The Gnocchi are hand made and have been made that way for the past 34 years by Nonn Caterina. We had them with Bolognese and a second order... More

Whether you are sitting out on the patio, or inside or just having a drink at their new bar - there is an upbeat atmosphere at Julia's - you only have to meet the owner Julia Hanna to know who generates the warm vibe. And the food is good too.

Food and service were good. Problem was the music was so loud you had difficulty hearing your table mates. When the staff were asked to lower the volume I guess it was so loud they didn't hear me.

What a wonderful lunch, three of us went to Julia today at lunch, enjoyed delicious white Sangria/Beer and our beautifully delicious meals!! Would strongly recommend the salmon, absolutely wonderful, I seldom eat the skin but this was amazing!! Friends ordered turkey/bacon panini, served with salad and the other salmon cakes with caprese salad. No complaints just a lot of oohing... More
