First time eating at Julia's and was very pleasantly surprised. The service was friendly, timely, and courteous. We ordered the antipasto for 2 which was tasty. The olives, cheese, poached figs, and cured meats were very good. I had the linguine pescatore and the squid was perfectly cooked! The rest of the seafood was yummy too but the star was... More

With our daughter firmly occupied for the next few hours my wife and I decided to relax by having a nice leisurely lunch at Julia's in Oakville. The place has a wonderful vibe, its open concept, including the kitchen makes you feel part of the whole dining experience. The staff are very pleasant and offer up drinks the moment you... More

Julia's always prepares great food made from fresh ingredients. It never disappoints. My favourite restaurant to dine in downtown Oakville. I like the renovation that was done sometime ago very classy.

The Italian dinner was delicious. Fresh pasta, good ribs, choice of full menu. Candles at each table. Fantastic service. For those of you who are not padded be forewarned that they are bare wooden chairs to sit on. And it's a little loud - probably because of the tiled floor, bare tables, and nothing to absorb all the excited talking.

We celebrated the baptism of our daughters at Julia's. The food was great! There was a variety of food and the meals were delicious! They even had a kids menu. I would definitely return.

The staff are friendly and very pleasant even when, as we suddenly realized that we were the last one in the restaurant! Menu is excellent, well prepared and elegantly plated

Well located downtown Oakville, Julia is a comfortable Italian restaurant. It offers a good selection of starters and salads, some pasta dishes and a small meat selection. The choice of wines is decent, though expensive. Service is friendly and efficient and I liked the setting and tasteful decor. Overall, it's a good restaurant for casual business dinners or private occasions.

My wife and I would go to Julia's when we wanted to go for dinner and know that the food and the service were going to be first rate. One of our favourite "higher end" restaurants in Oakville, and at that - they are still reasonably priced. The food never fails to impress and the service has been great every... More

The atmosphere was lively, the food excellent, the server A-1! The food is primarily Italian. Excellent wine list. You must try the desserts, particularly the Tiramisu, overseen by their in-house Garde Manager, Connor.

Thank Pauline H
