Excellent meal... but $19 for a burger and fries is excessive!
Excellent food and service!! Strongly recommend!
Plan on going again soon.
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.
Great service. Nice get together for family events.
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.)
Food was bland and unappetizing.
O&B is one of the few restaurants in the area that offers brunch. We really enjoyed our meals at 0&B. I would definitely recommend the Avocado Toast. It was delicious!
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.
Over priced and poor quality of food. Save yourself some money and go somewhere else.
It was a wonderful meal with excellent service and quality food. My wife and I enjoyed an awesome lunch without the kids.
Best eggs Benedict in town!
Excellent location and parking for my group. Excellent server and food. However conversation was difficult as some in our group have hearing problems. The situation seems worse here than at other restaurants we have visited for our birthday lunches.
Loved the fried chicken French toast!
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 !!!
food was excellent, server was nice, helpful, attentive without being overbearing
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.
We have had the pleasure of enjoying your friendly atmosphere and delicious meals since you opened at this location. You always go over the top for us and we a very grateful to your hostesses and your chefs for your excellent service and innovative creative meals. Thanks again for a wonderful evening in saying goodbye to 2017. We look forward to seeing you in the new year!
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.
Not the same quality of food as O&B downtown toronto. I came here as I thought the brand carried some consistency...
It was good except that the salt shaker top was not on and it spilt all over my dads meal and the server just laughed.
O&B is always consistent - food, service and ambiance - totally recommend this restaurant!
Awesome service and food! Wine a little pricey. Service was great and ambiance as well!
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.
Very nice restaurant. I met an old friend for lunch and we had a great time catching up. I like that the tables aren't too close to each other so you don't feel crowded in. The server was very efficient and the food was all delicious.
The food, service and ambiance were all wonderful. Would defiantly recommend. We loitered over our meal with friends (and took quite awhile even to order initially) but were never rushed.
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.
Food and service expectations were very high going in. Left extremely disappointed and will not recommend.
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.
The service was excellent and the servers were attentive. Food was very good for a Sunday Brunch
Great reservation and welcome on site. requested a quiet corner in the restaurant - arrived early....no quiet corner exists so switched to the bar -- a corner in a booth with a table far too wide for the space...no way to fit two men.....loud music which I requested they turn down and did.....my guest ordered soup + salad...but they forgot about the salad until I was almost done my meal - a lifeless chicken ceasar with a hunk of chicken dropped on top. food quality is ok ---servers doint theor best Overpriced, cramped booth.....i will not return
Great friendly service. Gear food. Good value for the money.
Mediocre food and expensive price,decor is - Micheal Bonacini should spend less time on T.V and opening new restaurants and should concentrate on improving the food in his existing ones
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.
