Sangria was fantastic, food was very good. I had the Butter Chicken, tasty. My wife had the Fish & Chips, light, fluffy & almost grease free. Nice date night / evening.

Brunch get-together: the O&B breakfast was 50% potatoes and very ordinary, 2 tiny sausages. Bread not buttered. There were 2 large parties in the space and so it was nearly impossible to hear each other. Disappointing, because we had a previous O & B brunch in Toronto which was really great.

We were celebrating a friend's birthday and we all very much enjoyed our experience at O&B.
We've been there many times before and we always have a good experience... food, service, ambiance (it wasn't too noisy - we were able to carry on a conversation).
We'll definitely be back!

Everything went wrong from the beginning. Our reservation was cancelled as their Open Table app was out by an hour. They had only one server on for the whole restaurant. She had 5 plus tables, but was more concerned with doing her table setups and sweeping than serving us. This dinner was with my family to celebrate my wife's birthday and ended up being a big disappointment.

Long waits for food... when it finally arrived it appeared everything had been done for awhile and left under a heating lamp. My coleslaw tasted like soup it was so hot. Our apps came out before our drink order. I asked for condiments for my fish and chips and our server forgot them and went about setting up tables for the next day.

I could hear other tables complaining about missed items too.

When paying for our bill I mentioned how I felt bad for our server as she was the only one working, she replied "at least it's good money for me". Well it doesn't equal out to good service, a good experience or a good review by it's paying customers. We dropped $150 for dinner at a higher end restaurant (at least we thought) for a special occasion and received an experience worst that an entry level tap & grill.

I know establishments need to manage their staffing accordingly to save money, but for a full service, mid-range fine dining experience restaurant you need to make sure your service levels remain consistent. This place seats over 100 pax and I know it was a Tuesday, but to only have one server is very unprofessionally managed.

Brunch is always yummy here. I was being picky and wanted a different bread choice, something on the side, yada yada, but the waitress was very friendly and accommodating. Everyone had a big smile for the customers. Nice place, good kitchen (fabulous homefries with the eggs bennie.)

My pizza was over-cooked and burned in spots and therefore I could not cut through the crust. I had to rip it apart with my hands & eat it with my hands. Our server witnessed this but did not provide any comments. It was also a little on the expensive side ($23 for a ham and onion 1 person pizza). My companion had a crab cake & enjoyed it.

We reserved for my husbands 50th (which I believe I added in the notes section of the reservation). No mention by any of the staff or anything offered in recognition of this event. Disappointing. Food and service was good otherwise.

Went for lunch for my friend’s Birthday on a quiet Saturday in Oakville. Menu options limited - turkey burger was bland although presentation was attractive. Overall disappointed at the lack of good imagination and lack of flavours. Service was very friendly. Probably a reason why it’s often quite empty.

I was originally concerned reading posted reviews about poor service & poor food quality. Our experience was opposite: taste-good & service-good. However food “value” (quantity) is substantially subpar - not nearly worth the cost !!!

Three adults attended for New Year’s Eve earlier dinner at 6:30 pm. We had a lovely young server who was very helpful. We all ordered from the special 3 course menu for $65.00. One person had ordered the winter squash salad and didn’t realize that this was a cold salad which she did not like. We mentioned this to our server and she quickly changed it for the parsnip soup. The entrees were very good, one being Arctic char and beef tenderloin. The beef was cooked perfectly. The desserts were fine. We found the Oakville Mess which consisted of broken meringue, sponge toffee with a lemon curd and a few pieces of raspberry much too sweet. It certainly did look like a mess, served on a large plate, looking like it was thrown together.
The food was generally good, but I feel not up to the regular O & B standard.

Very pleasant welcome at reception desk and efficiently shown to our booth. Pleased to receive a booth as we were only a group of two and I find your tables for couples too close together for a private conversation.
Our Server was delightful and the Eggs Benedict excellent as always!
A very positive, relaxed dining experience.

All food was enjoyed by our table. Wine service was horribly slow, so much so that we cancelled to last glass. Somehow there is a disconnect between the bar and the resterant . The bar only had 6 people it, so it wasn’t busy. Very disappointed with this aspect.

Office team went for our Christmas lunch recently. Server was very knowledgeable about menu options and helpful with selections. Food offerings were excellent, food when it arrived was excellent, but timely service was lacking. Took about 1/2 hour for server to bring water and take drink requests. In total, a simple lunch and dessert for 6 took almost 2 1/2 hours on a Friday afternoon.

The service and staff are wonderful and extremely attentive - however the food was absolutely awful:

- the beets in the beet salad had been left dressed for too long (likely several days) and were decomposing with a mushy texture.
- the seafood spaghettini sauce was basically tomato water with very little flavor
- the macaroni and cheese had no flavor or texture
- the mushroom soup was virtually flavourless and had a watery consistency

We thought this would be a great place for my father’s b-day but it was absolutely disappointing.

Our recommendation to this chain would be: keep the staff but fire your head chef. This menu needs to be completely redone by a qualified chef who knows how to create taste and flavor full dishes.

Don’t waste your time coming here unless the kitchen leadership changes.

Where do I even start , the food was extremely un appetizing - it was supposed to be a special evening for us - but what a shock and disappointing affair .
The green pea risotto had no seasoning- extremely blend , the fish was oily and the pasta dish was just too heavy - not worth the money we paid for the meal .
I will never go back . The server was helpful though.

Our soup which was luke warm was fairly quickly replaced and an apology given by the manager. We were then given a complimentary plate with a variety of desserts which was a very good gesture on behalf of the restaurant. We did not feel rushed through our meal or visit.

It was our first time to Oliver & Bonacini and we will definitely go back. The staff was very friendly and kind. The service was attentive and the food absolutely delicious. The menu offered great variety but was not overwhelming. Every dish that came to our table was fresh and hot. They offered a great wine list and we took advantage of the half price bottle of wine they offered as a Wednesday drink special. It was a wonderful evening celebrating our anniversary. I look forward to our next visit.
