Had dinner here last week and was sadly very disappointed not only by the food but by how much the present owners have let this place slide. We have been going here since it first opened but have moved away so have not visited for about 18 months. Previously the food, beer and service as well as the decor was... More

Taste of Oakville happens when many restaurants here offer a prix fixe meal in the slow months after Christmas. Restaurants offer special meals in order to get new customers in to taste and then will want to return. O'Finn's missed the mark. Salad and beef soup to start was not bad however, then came the main courses. Seafood Jumbalaya (sic)... More

My wife and I stopped in before a Saturday night event at the Oakville Centre for the Performing Arts and had an enjoyable time. From the street it's up a flight of stairs to the door to the dining room. On the immediate right is the kitchen pass-through, past that is a long bar with plenty of taps and stools.... More

It's fantastic that they have vegan options on their menu. The food is excellent and the service is great. A meal at O'Finn's Irish Temper and then a walk down by the lake.....perfect!

I love going to O'Finn's and go as often as I can. The atmosphere is casual and comfortable. There is good variety on the menu and this time I had their Shepherd's Pie and it was the best I have ever had. I can't wait until my next visit as I know exactly what I'm having, again.

A group of friends stopped by O'Finn's Irish Temper for a beer, which was enjoyable. I can't really coment on the food as it did'nt look very interesting so we gave it a miss. Staff were friendly enough.

What happened to the Food Quality at O'Finns?... Last time I visited it was fresh, tasty, wonderful. This experience was quite the opposite...:-( The Club sandwich was soggy, the chicken breast (?) tasted previously frozen. Totally inedible. I nearly gagged eating it. The Bruschetta flat bread was excellent tho. We had that as an appetizer. But at $14 for a... More

a quiet evening dinner with pleasant surroundings and efficient staff . The wine spritzer was excellent as was the Guinness. A great spot for a romantic dinner.

This is the second time visiting this place for dinner. Meantime they've changed the menu and items like the Irish stew disappeared. The mussels and calamari appetisers were good. But that's all that was good. The fish and chips was very average (and quite a big step down from the last time we had the fish and chips there). The... More
