The service was impeccable, the venue lovely - the food was beyond any expectation!!! Unbelievable!!! It’s a must in Niagara on the Lake.
No quite stocked per menu
Lovely location, seated on the veranda overlooking the golf course. Chicken Supreme with Polenta and Rapini was delicious. I found the prices to be a little high but possibly COVID related. Server Marta was very kind and knowledgeable.
We had a lovely dinner with good friends celebrating birthdays. The food was excellent , and our server was very accommodating and friendly . We had the roast chicken supreme and it was delicious. The prices were a bit high, but it was totally worth it.
A great choice of restaurant venues when visiting Niagara on the lake.
Lovely staff and excellent service. We say outside and looked onto the golf course, which was very pleasant. Food is not outstanding and to my mind, a bit overpriced for what you get, but good, solid quality. Not a ton of variety on the menu.
Service was atrocious- waitress didn’t seem to want to be at work. Unfriendly, awkward and very inattentive
Very pleasant experience.
My friend and I were celebrating our birthdays (4 days apart!) in Niagara on the Lake and made reservations for our celebration dinner. It was an incredible experience! They brought us a complimentary glass of birthday sparkling wine to start and things just got better from there. The service was outstanding! The food was amazing - maybe one of the best beef tenderloins I have ever eaten in my life. I highly recommend the Ice Wine Martini as well!
Just Aces - all around!!
Excellent meal with superb service by James. Excellent wine recommendation to accompany our meals. James makes an excellent Old Fashioned. Highly recommend. Our first fine dining experience since COVID.
Great Food. Our steaks were perfectly cooked.
Lovely place to celebrate our Anniversary.
Beautiful atmosphere and the crab Benedict was delicious!!!
Loved sitting outside overlooking the golf course ! Had the soup of the day , salad and chicken ! All delicious! Chocolate creme brûlée was the best !
Service was top shelf!
Nice ambiance, very good food and service, great location.
Nice treat to be on the 2nd floor patio with a view of the gardens. The food and service was great!
Everything was absolutely perfect! Thank you !
First night open after 16 months of being closed so service was slow and patio was lacking in atmosphere. Food was good and good portion size, gardens made for a lovely view. Will give them some time to get back into the swing of things and give them another go.
The main course was not enough variety. It lacked meat.
Excellent food and service. Enjoyed a lovely lunch in front of the fire.
We went for Date night, with a special menu and fare. The service was very thoughtful, the wine was just right as the food. The amuse Boucher give it a very nice touch, the soup was delicious and we were lucky enough to have seat right by the fireplace. The perfect end to our stay
Sadly below average. Nice idea, poor execution.
This was an outstanding evening all round. The food was exceptional. The service terrific and the quiet ambiance made it a very romantic setting for my wife and on Valentine's Day. I would definitely recommend this dining experience and cannot wait to return.

As usual the food was outstanding. However being presented with a highly priced fixed menu was not to my liking. If I had seen it on the website, we would not have come. We are in our late eighties and have small diets. So they gave us smaller portions and still charged us the same price. Our waiter was not up to the same level as the ones at our previous visits. While explaining the courses he said the fish was cod while the menu clearly shows halibut. As mentioned earlier the food was excellent but (apart from this visit) the menu is sadly lacking in choice. When we decide on our next visit I will search the website to determine if we will like what is on the menu.
We had a great experience at the Hob Nob. They have a very good selection of dishes. This food is always well prepared. Alan was our server and his service was very attentive. We went to the restaurant to celebrate a birthday and they made it a very special occasion. All in all, this a great restaurant to visit when visiting Niagara on the Lake.
We were regulars to HObnob. It has a special place in our hearts as that was the place we dined on our engagement night. The food there used to be amazing and we recommended this spot to friends all the time. This time however it was a whole different experience. The food was mediocre and service was average. For what one pays in this place this is not a good combination. Also the place is empty most of the time lately, I am thinking more and more people are experiencing what we just did. I will have to step away from hobnob for sometime now which is disappointing as it was so special to us.
The food was the best I have ever tasted. We both had the trout this time. Superb cooking. The service was excellent, prompt and unobtrusive. The location is a bit pokey, having been converted from a large house. We ate early (5 pm) and were the only ones there, very quiet! Got a table by the fire!!
I brought a friend to Hobnob for the first time. She is a discerning diner (as am I). We both enjoyed the meal...were able to have a wonderful conversation, even seated next to a very large group of women in the main dining room. The food was very good, and it was served in a timely manner. The bar is wonderful...comfortable seats, great ambiance, terrific cocktails, served quickly and well. I will definitely come back.
A perfect date night. Quiet, romantic, excellent food and excellent and attentive service. I would definitely recommend it.
We were seated on an enclosed veranda on a cold windy night. I suspect it was to prop up the appearance of how busy the place was. Basically we were frozen by the end of dinner. Not a good experience.
Came for dinner for our Anniversary, have been coming to this restaurant for years and the food has always been excellent. Unfortunately this time I was disappointed, none of the main courses really appealed to any of us. I ended up choosing a main course that had a small portion of Pork Belly, 2 scallops and 3 tempura mushrooms, that was presented on the 1/2 side of the plate. It was not a lot of food and I ate the mushrooms and a couple of bites of the pork belly and unfortunately only 1 of the scallops because it was a way to salty, I felt that for $45.00 the meal should have at least included potatoes or vegetable to offset the meat, especially port belly. Unfortunately I should have stuck with my first thought to just order the soup and an appetizer.
The service was outstanding like it always is, so I would still recommend going to this restaurant, you just may want to check the menu before you go, I know we would not have gone here had we seen it before booking a table.
The food was super deluxe excellant. You could taste each spice in the salad. My partner and I believe that the meat (trout and turkey) was the best ever. The place was a bit pokey with no real ambiance. The noise level was low (we are in our 80's) which was to our satisfaction. The price was at a once in a year level but if the we will definately return for special occasions, especially if the chef is still there.
Overall good experience! Great wine pairing.
A girlfriends getaway dinner! Excellent service from Arturo . Food was good and served in a timely manner . We’ll definitely be back !
Have eaten here several times, and the quality of the service, food and atmosphere is excellent! Especially great for Christmas feel! Love it!
Always a pleasure. We are here once a week.
Disappointing Fabulicious experience. Menu too limited & too many rich dishes.
It was relaxed. Food was wonderful. Service was exceptional. We spent 3 hours over dinner, but we didn't guess it was that long! It was superb. They gave us a free glass of bubbly because of our anniversary.
Very quaint. Very personal. The service was excellent. The food was good.
The food and atmosphere here were best in town and somehow less expensive. Really cool old vintage house turned hotel offered the perfect romantic dining setting. Notably people of all ages even a lot of young people.. loved the beet salad with cured salmon.
