  • "the food was excellent! had the best hollandaise sauce! the waiter was very also outstanding. went with my toddler and waiter was considerate of her by bringing her food asap"
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "Perfect patio setting. Although food was slow to come, this was for a good reason as the chef decided that it needed to be redone from scratch. Everything was excellent as usuual."
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "My objective was a quiet lunch with a friend to catch up on affairs in general. The lunch itself was good and we had excellent service. However, our meeting was spoiled by the noise level which at times made conversation difficult. Your choice of music was, to our ears, quite unpleasant and the volume far too high."

  • "Delicious food and good service for corporate lunch meeting. Have been here before and will come again!"

  • "Had the avocado Panini style club with coleslaw....not fries...they were extra. Not much food for 15$....perhaps 1 slice of bacon....cut in to two pieces....with no tomato in the sandwich. But a diet coke was only a buck!! Go to a local pub (the one on 4th line near north service road Oakville) for a real club....with choice of fries, soup etc...."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "This was third time at this restaurant. The first two visits were excellent but the service was extremely poor. My friend's salad was too oily and it was to include bread which never came. We waited 20 minutes for a coffee. We finally called the waitstaff and she said it went to another table."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "I will return again, but not on those special days, such the Father's Day, it was very busy,and food got delay. However, the services is very good, and try their best to keep us inform about the food status. It is fare to got delay for the busy day."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "The service was spectacular and always has been for us at O&B. The kitchen accommodated special orders and allergies. We found the music loud but we were seated out of the normal hustle and bustle of the restaurant and kitchen. This helped us hear each other during conversations. We particularly love their mushroom soup. Three of us had soup and salad, two Eggs Benedict and one had the hash. All were very happy with their meals. The fun was in the dessert sampler. 6 people easily shared the platter."

  • "Great meal on Father's Day; even though service was slow and noise level made it hard hear."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "O&B is our favourite restaurant. Lots of parking, great service and tasty food make this a special place. A relaxed ambience but with prompt service by very polite and capable staff."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "The eggs benedict was delicious especially on the scone rather than English muffin. We were seated in the lounge where it was a little quieter. I appreciate the hostess giving us that choice. My only suggestion is to ask the wait staff to slow down their speech just a little, to consider arriving at the table, short pause and then ask the question as if they have time to do so and are not in a rush to get to the next task. Thank you. I will definitely come back."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "Good variety of choices on the menu, server very attentive and professional. Restaurant busy but not full at 11 a.m. Food was tasty but not very hot. Nice place with lots of room for such a celebration."

  • "We have been to this restaurant twice now. The first time it was just my husband and I for dinner, the 2nd time, our 2 teenagers joined us for lunch. We have been impressed with the service. The staff are very attentive and always make sure you are enjoying your meal. We like the diverse selection. Something for everyone. From burgers and fish and chips to lamb and steak. The desserts are amazing. Order the chef's platter. You get 4 mini desserts and of them are wonderful. We like this restaurant as it is more upscale then a Kelsey's or a Montanna's, but not as expensive as the Old Mill or other upscale restaurants. "

  • "We went for a 65th birthday, and the hostess waiting to seat us was great and even had a little sign that said happy birthday. The waitress was slow and needed several reminders to bring things, it go to the point where I hot my own water and cutlery because I didn't have time to keep waiting to ask for it. Probably not a bad place to go to if you have time to spare, but I only had an hour and a half which to me should have been more than enough time to have lunch and celebrate a birthday."
    Dined on 5/26/2014
  • "My friend & I took our husbands here to celebrate their birthdays (May 21 & 22). It was a great success: the food choices were excellent, salads were freshly tossed with just the right amount of dressing. The soup was claimed " the best soup I've ever tasted". The entrées were presented perfectly and were as delicious as they looked!. And the staff were friendly and did their roles effectively. Thank you for a memorable day. We will definitely come back."

  • "Great find last minute for my wife's birthday, great food at a reasonable price... even took the chef's card to send him a complimentary email on his approach to great art!!!...brought the two boys along 19 and 20 who also loved the food and had a great time with Mom and Dad (or maybe the young lady waiting the table). Been to other O&B establishments and they remain to be consistent... consistently good!!! Thanks, we'll see you soon..."

  • "We went for Mother's Day and the service and food were not what they usually are! My sister and I had the steak and eggs. We asked for egg whites and they were completely watery and undercooked. The steak literally had blood oozing out. On top of all that, we waited over an hour for our food to be served. They were not accommodating with the menu either. We've been here many times before and loved it. This time, we were very disappointed. Not sure if we'd return, especially to the Oakville location!"
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "I had an overall great experience. The high quality meal was also tasty and reasonably priced. The service was outstanding. Mother's Day is a busy day, but the waitress's great personality we didn't mind when the food took a bit longer to be prepared. Her suggestion for our choices were knowledgable and she constantly smiled and made us feel absolutely welcome. Mother's Day turned to a Happy Day."

  • "Great food, good variety & quality. Whole party loved it. My son said it was the best steak he ever had."

  • "I've eaten at the Oakville O&B Grill many times ... for many different occasions. I've never been disappointed in the food, service or the atmosphere. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend! "
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "It started out well; seated right away, server attentive, apps great (rock shrimp and sweet potato fries). The evening went down hill though. My husband's steak was overdone (they made him a new one), our servers originally cute phrase ("thanks for asking") became over-used and formulaic, things took progressively longer to get to us, including the bill. So much potential but it just falls short. "

  • "A special thanks to the staff for acknowledging a special birthday - a memorable excellent meal that was enjoyed by all attendees."

  • "My mom and I went on Friday to beat the Mothers Day crowds. The servers were extremely conscientious of my mom's allergy and served us quickly as we were famished. Highly recommend the pot stickers as an app and the Calamari dinner. I just wish I could find the Yealands New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc at the LCBO! Amazing service!"

  • "Went there for dinner with wife for her birthday. Nothing special was attributed to the fact that it was her special day. I hate the singing at the table but a special traent level would have been refreshing. A congrats from the manager. A little flower or thanks for choosing us on your birthday. We had to ASK for bread twice. We spent 174 dollars guys. Including tax and tip. Maybe a bottle of sparkling water on the table no charge? I teach customer service for a living. The experience was a world class fail for the money. You don't feel special. The waiter was polite. The food was good. Expensive but decent. 20 dollars for fish/chips. You spend 140 bucks on a meAl but still have to pay 4 bucks for a lousy cup of coffee. Sorry royal FAIL. "
    Dined on 5/2/2014
  • "From the greeting to our exit the staff was welcoming and friendly. I was catching up with a girlfriend and found that they were attentive but sensitive and gave us space and time. The food was excellent and I was so happy to see burratta on the menu. The Hunters pie was delicious if just a bit too large and the churro so were a perfect end to share."

  • "I was really disappointed in the service and meal at O&B Oakville Place. I have come to anticipate a very good meal, and warm attentive service at O&B restaurants in Toronto. After ordering wine, we waited and waited. Not one server came by our table in this approximate 10 to 15 minute time frame, so I approached the front desk. The manager I spoke with said she'd bring it and when she did, she said 'I checked and the wine was ordered 8 minutes ago.' This situation reflects poor communication, both between staff members and an unprofessional response to diners. The calamari we ordered was floating in olive oil and the Japanese Caesar salad over-dressed. The mixed seafood dish that one of my fellow diners ordered also fell very flat."
    Dined on 4/22/2014
  • "Our group has 6 people. Everyone said the good is very good. However, we all found the service is not so good. The server didn't ask us if we want anything to drink. The server is not as friendly and smiley like other restaurants. She seems serious but it is not a big deal, different personality I guess. She didn't check back on us like other restaurant beside keep filling up our water. Also another server brought over the vinegar but without saying anything, just sneak it on the table at the corner that my colleague didn't even notice and could have knocked it down. The appetizer bread is a bit hard and only enough for each person. I don't remember hearing thank you when we leave. I guess this restaurant style is quiet!!!"

  • "from the time we walked in it was an oooops. the reservation was not found at the front although I had been called the day before and it had been confirmed - so where did it go???. We were seated, however the reservation was for two birthdays. Another oooops as well. After being seated it was corrected quickly. A server did not appear for a good period of time. We actually called someone over (manager?) and we go water and she took our order. The server appeared and apologized. Unfortunately, I would say that the manager saved the day and was the one who continued to salvage the service. The server never did get back on track. Disappointed yes indeed especially when reservations were made in advance. "

  • "I recently dined with 3 friends at O & B. We were being seated in the main dining area, but it was very noisy there, so we requested a booth in the bar. It was more pleasant there. The food was great. I especially enjoyed their small lemon dessert. The waiter was fairly attentive, but when I asked for a refill on water, he only served me, not the others, which was odd. We had to ask him to return with water for the others. It's nice to have a good restaurant close by in our neighbourhood. It's in a mall so there is lots of parking too."
