I have only been here once and the food didn't leave enough of an impression to return, but I may try again. The place is small and cozy but the lighting could be a little dimmer at dinner time. The food could be improved, especially the sauces. The menu is a little limited. The service was slow but would try... More

My chicken dinner was tasteless and the chicken was over cooked. The grilled vegetables were burned. The waiter ( I wish I remembered his name), tall idiot that wears glasses was full of arrogant comments that I didn't care to listen to. The young punk at the bar another tall geeky guy with acne also had a pompus attitude. Don't... More

Were pleasantly surprised to get last minute reservations when seeing the good reviews this restaurant has been receiving. Our dining experience was not a disappointment. Very large dinner portions and piping hot. Waiter was very knowledgeable and friendly. Only complaint and disappointment was the volume of the music (very loud for such a small space) combined with the loud chatter... More

The service has always been great, prices are reasonable, serving sizes are good and the food is even better! Having a gluten allergy can make it difficult to eat out, but Colossus is one of my favourite places to enjoy a safe meal and they accommodate my needs. P.S. They have gluten free fried calamari. Anyone gluten free knows how... More

We have enjoyed dining at Colossus for years and we often take out of town guests as well. We usually share several mezes, calamari and a Greek salad with one of their carefully chosen Greek wines.This summer we partook of their patio menu and were blown away by the lamb! Mouthwatering and tender it was perfectly seasoned and cooked to... More

We as local residents of Oakville have for many years enjoyed meals at Colossus. Their food and service are both excellent and this relatively small and busy location is expanded in the summer months with a nice street side patio. Some of my favourite foods to order there include the calamari dinner, seafood kabob and the traditional chicken souvlaki. They... More

We appreciated the good service--attentive, but not intrusive. We wanted to wait until the fourth in our party arrived before ordering wine, and that was no problem. We were served water and then the server waited until our friend arrived and settled in before coming back for our drink order. The food was delicious. For appetizers, we split the stuffed... More

We happened to be downtown Oakville doing a bit of shopping and fancied Greek food. We were pleasantly surprised that the restaurant was bright and clean. There was also outdoor seating. We both ordered pork souvlaki with roast potato, rice and Greek salad. Service was excellent and friendly and the souvlaki was tender and juicy. The potatoes were to die... More

A group of 6 visited. Not sure if this is a downtown Oakville thing but a lot of places were closed on Monday evening anyway this wasn't our first choice. The food lacks flavour served with a lot of rice. Dishes ordered included the dips and pittas, which were probably the only edible part of the meal, modusaka was dried... More

Four of us dined at the Colossus. Welcomed and seated quickly. Broad menu of fairly typical Greek dishes, reasonably priced. Meals were OK but a bit westernised - just too much material on the plate. Overall, we enjoyed dining at Colossus, as did a full house of customers.
