                              Overpriced for what you get and the food that we had was way to heavily seasoned. We are rarely the type of people to send things back but we had a dish that was so salty it was impossible to stomach.

                              We had a wonderful dinner at Hob Nob. Being there before the busy season, we were able to dine in a beautiful dining room with very little distraction. The service was peerless,. The food was excellent, and the many different tastes were brilliant. We will definitely return.

                              The ambiance at this restaurant is awesome. Like going back in time to old world grandeur. Their breakfast menu is diverse, and excellent. And, the service is impeccable. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone enjoying NiagaraOnTheLake.

                              We have dined at Hob Nob for breakfast many times, but unfortunately had a terrible experience yesterday. Our server put us on ignore for the majority of our meal. The omelet we ordered was prepared incorrectly (missing ingredients) but our server never returned to our table to check in and confirm if everything was okay. The croissants were tough and stale. The ambience is fantastic and it is a super quaint restaurant, but I would have a hard time recommending this place over the NOTL Golf Course, Queen's Landing, or Zees for equivalent cost and much better service.

                              Appetizers were tiny and somewhat tasteless especially considering the high price point and how tasty the menu makes them sound. The waiter was friendly and attentive. The wine, tenderloin and cheesecake were good, but overall have had much better dinners for less or the same price. Maybe without the apps would have felt was worth it.

                              This place was amazing. We went at 5:30 on a Thursday and we’re the only ones there for a while so it was very intimate. We were worried that the portions would be small as it’s fine dining but they were very generous and we were full by the end.

                              We probably won’t be coming back. We had been here once before in 2019 at the conclusion of a wine tour and don’t remember it being as bad as it was this time. The service was okay — the waiters were nice but we had to ask multiple times for things before we would get them (ie. Olive oil, Fixing the wobbly table). We ordered the scallops and smoked salmon appetisers and were unimpressed as the scallops were nothing special for $32 (you only get two) and the salmon was on a bed of unripe, tasteless avocado. We told the waiter and they did take it off the bill, which we appreciated, but we should never have been served avocado so firm. The tenderloin main was fine, but we found it overpriced for the small piece of meat we received ($54). Lastly, the char was also okay but it was on a bed of half-cooked vegetables that weren’t really tasty. We were hoping for something better for the cozy atmosphere and price.

                              If you position yourself as upscale restaurant, and serving $85 set dinner, you should not serve cheap tea bags. Soup supposed to be liquid. My butternut squash soup was s purée of pumpkin pie consistency. Not nice. Prime rib was great!

                              We were staying at the Charles Inn and reserved for Christmas dinner in house. We had turkey dinner the night before at Zee's which was excellent so we went for the Prime Rib also on the menu. The service was excellent and our waiter Darren was friendly and efficient. The food was wonderful and we felt we had a very special dinner. Yes, it is a bit pricey but for special occasions and celebrations, it is well worth it.

                              Food was excellent. Service was excellent. Noise was moderate but only for a while as a wedding party waited to be seated for their meal. The noise didn’t bother us at all, in fact we were there celebrating our 30th anniversary and the setting was almost identical to our reception 30 years ago in western NY. It was wonderful!
