Beautiful little steakhouse! Brought my boyfriend here for his birthday and I was so pleased to see that they had vegetarian options as well so that I wasn't stuck eating a salad!! The service was phenomenal, definitely would recommend for a nice evening out!

We go quite often. It is smaller and quiet. A nice place for a group too. Quality steaks and fine dining. We like this better than the keg as you can have a nice conversation.

Had a lovely dinner - prime rib was delicious. We were too full for dessert, but could not resist sharing a couple between the four of us; they were both amazing! Would recommend to friends and will be back!

The food was tasty, cooked to our liking and served hot. The appetizers and salads were also very good. However I would like to have had a little larger serving of salad. Our waiter was excellent. He was very friendly and attentive and served our dinner very timely.

One of the classiest restaurants you will find in Peterborough, yet it offers service that is friendly and knowledgeable. They genuinely cared that we had a good experience. Hobarts offeres great selection for a steakhouse, including a gluten-free vegan dessert that was to die for. The steaks were delicious and done exactly as ordered, while the baked potato and vegetables were also nicely done.

This was our first visit to the restaurant. The food was amazing with good portion sizes and was well presented. The staff are very friendly, knowledgeable, and accommodating. It’s a lovely, quiet atmosphere (we visited on a Tuesday). We would highly recommend this restaurant and we will definitely be back.

We fully enjoyed our dinner out. The restaurant is clean, comfortable, and quiet. The service was gracious. The steaks were done to our liking, with a delicious home made soup as starter. The ambience/decor is modest and inviting, and not over the top fancy. Price point is acceptable for this kind of dining.

The ribeye steak was so tender...not too spicy. Caesar salad was about the best I've had. It was evenly coated and in small bites...no large pieces. We had cosmos...perfect. It was a little noisy but it was Friday night. Will be back.

I brought my daughter for her 60th Birthday. Our waiter, Kathryn was attentive even though it was a busy night. I found the music loud and would have enjoyed quiet jazz.
The sirloin steak I ordered was too rare for me. I had asked for the Chicago at MR but chefs are different and I should have had Medium. It was a very thick cut which surprised me.
Other staff provided us with WIFI which was a nice touch.
We took a cab which dropped us at the door but at the wrong side of your billboard outside so we did not realize that roast beef was on the menu until we were leaving and finally noticed the sign.
Most unfortunate as we would have ordered this entree. It was not on the menus at table.

The scallop appetizer was delicious. My steak was great but I found the vegetables to be overcooked. The apple crumble was a lovely end to the meal.
We were seated at a table by the window and there was a very cold draft on my back throughout dinner. I had to have my winter coat draped over my shoulder for the entire dinner. There were other available tables which I feel should have been offered on a cold winter night.

Thank you for taking the time to comment on your recent Hobart's experience. We are glad that you enjoyed your steak and dessert and will re address our standards on the vegetable preparation. This recent cold snap has been hard to take. One of our steps of service is to ensure that every guest is happy with their seating and subject to availability can and should be moved to a table of their liking. Thank you again for bringing this to our attention.

ust returned from having lunch at this restaurant. Our waiter Greg was perfect just the right amount of attention given. Our food was amazing, you eat with your eyes first and the presentation was perfect. The Birthday boy enjoyed the
Cajun Seafood Chowder
"A sauté of shrimp, clams, mussels, spicy sausage, shallots, peppers & wedged mini red potatoes in cajun lobster cream over garlic loaf with scallion garnish"
and I enjoyed the
Sirloin Flat Steak Sandwich
"Seasoned, broiled & served open faced on garlic toasted ciabatta with sautéed peppers,
onions & mushrooms"
And for dessert we were treated to an amazing dairy free dessert with a sparkler, I loved the sorbet the best. Parking is an issue but so worth the short walk to get to this gem.

Andrew our server was fantastic! He was the highlight of the evening-very personable. We ordered escargot, very little flavour, ordered chicken Oscar-chicken wasn’t stuffed as per menu, ordered steak with potatoes, a lobster tail and salad. Didn’t get the salad at all and they forgot the lobster so it arrived well after we were done eating. It wasn’t super busy so not sure why so many issues.

It was a busy night for the restaurant and I had high expectations. They were out of some items and it was noisy, understandable. However, overall I was disappointed with the quality of the beef. I prefer my steaks thicker than the thin rib-eye. It was tasty, though, just not living up to my probably-too-high expectations. They did provide us with a complementary dessert as an apology for the lack of a few items we had wanted to order.
