This Lakeshore Rd. restobar has an enviable view across from Spencer Smith Park, paired with a modern, upscale atmosphere. Their menu - created by Chef Zee - offers everything from calamari to chorizo sausage and shrimp puff pastry to Moroccan spiced duck breast. Table 34’s charcuterie board, or Mezza Plate, is superb. It features westphalian ham, Csabi sausage, provolone, gherkins, smoked almonds, grapes, cherry tomatoes, baba ghanouj, and bread. In other words, a perfect share platter!
One bite made me forget I was in an outdated shopping mall most frequented by my mom (and other seniors) and students on lunch break. This fried calamari was sublime. Tavolo, a longtime favourite, has been wowing Oakville diners who typically frequent other fabulous restos owned by Catch Hospitality Group. Try flagging a server on a Sunday night — it’s insanely busy. The pizza is phenomenal, too — fresh, fresh, fresh ingredients and that combination of margherita pizza plus salami … it’s heavenly.
The food offerings here are Oakville-calibre … straight up. This beautiful, historic building used to be home to the Thompson House Hotel back in 1864. La Toscana owner Tony De Gaetano opened up in 1998 and has been serving up a little slice of Italy since, with incredibly fresh seafood, entrees, appetizers, and desserts. La Toscana is well-known for the oyster and martini bar. The atmosphere is equal parts cozy and sophisticated, while the dining experience is pure elegance. Calamari is grilled to perfection, served alongside tomatoes, black olives, garlic, and capers. Arctic char is a great pick from the grill, with lemon, potatoes, and carrots. The Spaghetti Bolognese blends house-made veal and beef sauce. It tastes fantastic, although this pasta isn’t made in-house (but the linguine is). There’s a great selection from Italy on the wine list. And for your post-main indulgence, three desserts are made in-house: tiramisu, creme brulee, and spumone, or espresso-flavoured ice cream drizzled in chocolate sauce. Service is superb — ask about the original door when you go!
The Mye Japanese restaurants are the best two Japanese restaurants in Oakville. Interestingly enough, the Mye brand has been around for close to 30 years. This is definitely more of fine dining option when it comes to Japanese food without breaking the bank. Mye 2 is located in a plaza on Trafalgar and Dundas and the interior is modern, open and very well lit so you can see the incredible food you are eating. We had the seven course-tasting menu that came with a little bit of everything. It started with sasuke, sunomono salad, sashimi, sushi, tempura and steak. Every single dish was mouth wateringly delicious at $49. We were there for lunch and they made it special for us, as it’s not on the lunch menu.
This tiny-fine dining restaurant provides an array of gourmet, chef-made menu items (and libations, obviously). The Hand-Made Gnudi is created in-house and stands out as a star dish, featuring lemon-thyme ricotta, roasted pearl onions, mushrooms, and walnut pesto. It’s equal parts light yet addictive. Popular items include the delicious Mushroom Pizza, with buttered leeks and truffle oil, and Braised Beef Yorkies, which is oh-so-comforting on any given day. So’s the cornbread served under the Crab Cakes. And the Chicken Florentine Crepe is something to write home about. Menu changes are kicking in as of spring 2018, so that only means there will be more new dishes to sample!
