Deliciously Refined Elegance

Niagara-on-the-Lake is famous for its historic architecture, golf courses, and culinary prowess, so why not combine these into one wonderful experience? The HobNob Restaurant & Wine Bar is found in a beautifully restored 1832 manor house that overlooks the renowned Niagara-on-the-Lake Golf Club. The name of the game at HobNob is laidback, yet exquisite indulgence. Emphasizing the best ingredients – many from local farms – HobNob's menu provides temptations from start to finish, front to back.

    Food was good. We were seated next to a very loud party. Our server was off his game. He seemed distracted and in a rush. I would go back.

    We started with cocktails but they were too strong to drink. Then we ordered the chicken and cod as entrees and the cod was not even edible it was so fishy. The chicken was cooked nicely but had no flavour. The service was wonderful though! This restaurant is highly rated so we surprised and disappointed. Overall, I would not recommend. Perhaps other dishes are better…

    Food was good, took longer than we’d like for the breakfast to come out. Our server was very nice and the area is wonderful. The dining area was so quiet and needed some kind of music to not make it feel like a museum. I would probably go back.

    The food was tasty. Our cocktails were good. My main course had a variety of seafood and and nice flavor. Our dessert was obviously prepared elsewhere and frozen. It was good, but it should have been served at room temperature. Our waiter was friendly, but not very knowledgeable. He had difficulty answering any questions and did not seem to know much about the menu. We heard the other waiter mention several items not on the menu, our waiter did not. Our waiter did not know anything about the desserts. He incorrectly described them.

    While vacationing in Niagara-on-the-Lake, this restaurant is a "must do". Besides superior ambiance, meal choices and service, there is easy parking in the vicinity. The only thing that I found disappointing, was that they no longer serve "amuses bouches" before the exquisite meal. Apparently this feature was discontinued with the advent of Covid, but our waiter was hopeful that they'd be re-introduced this summer (2022) when the tourist trade get busier.

The meals (selected based on waiter recommendation) were delicious, well prepared and nicely accompanied by the recommended wine (local Niagara/Bench winery). We look forward to our next visit!

    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 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.
