    The food was excellent and the atmosphere was as well. Quiet and dark with a lot of seating options depending on what you like. It was a midweek dinner so not looking for a party.

    Food was fine. One order came 10 minutes before the other - not right as food got cold. Champagne ordered but different one came and flat. Had to just order a white wine. Reservation was made with Birthday notification request but no acknowledgement of the occasion - guess they don’t read the input. Would not recommend return soon.

    Sunday everting, long weekend. Not crowded. Service was very good. Small wine menu but found something to our liking. The charcuterie board was our appetizer … very nice; green salad … large enough to be shared. We ordered the steak & frites and the sea bass. Both were excellent. A very nice evening.

    Beacon Restaurant in downtown Oakville on Lakeshore is a great restaurant. Ambience is great with a nicely decorated main dining room, bar & lounge area and a large outdoor dining patio area. Menu items are competitively-priced with an excellent selection of appetizers, salads and entrees. We have dined there several times trying several different main entrees including the Beacon burger and fries...all were tasty and delicious. Service has been been attentive and very good. Staff are friendly and engaging.

    Inconsistent mussels. First two time they were amazing: plump, good amount of broth and amazing grilled bread. Last two times they were shriveled the size of a raisin and no broth. Cool place to hang out and drink, great service, but I would not order the mussels again.

    Waiter was very rude and condescending towards my group of friends. We didn’t order appetizers or sparking water so I think he thought we weren’t big spenders snd gave up on us. Restaurant was stifling hot too snd the waiter blamed the patio door that kept opening and closing. So many other complaints about this particular waiter. But food was great.

    We went to Beacon for my birthday and were pleased with everything from the excellent and friendly service, to the delicious food! Even the customers were friendly! We have eaten out a lot in the last few months and Beacon has provided one of the best overall experiences so far! We will be back....thank you!

    We have had dinner several times at Beacon since it opened. It is one of our favourite casual restaurants. Very nicely decorated with indoor dining room, bar area with seating and an expansive outdoor patio. Menu are varied with great options on appetizers, salads and entrees. We have tried several entrees...all very good. Service had generally been good.

    Love this fun restaurant being in our town. Great ambience but the service is not good at all. I do give a pass for the industry as likely all new staff, etc. However, been here a number of times now in both small and large groups. They never come back to check in, seem uninterested and aren’t very knowledgeable about menu, wine. It seems the friendliest people are the hostess and the bartender . Hope they fix things!
