We spent part of Valentine's weekend in the Niagara region including dinner at this excellent restaurant. I am a fan of eating what is locally grown and seasonally available. HobNob obviously believes this too. In the middle of winter in Ontario that means root vegetables which can be a bit of a challenge to make new and interesting. However the... More

Our dinner was included with our stay at the Harbour House Hotel. We each had an excellent 3 course meal. Set in a quaint old house, our table faced a fireplace. Service was excellent. Very nice

My wife and I were visiting over the Valentine's Day weekend and were looking for a nice meal to celebrate the occasion. We have eaten at many fine restaurants throughout the world and the cuisine here was on par with many of the places we have dined before. If I were only reviewing on food quality, I would give Hob...

Another visit and it didn't disappoint. My wife and I love this restaurant for 3 simple ingredients (pardon the pun) - fresh ingredients cooked and plated well; attentive & friendly service; and a good ambiance. It works. Thank you and keep it up!

Four of us celebrated New Years Eve 2015 at the HobNob where we were treated to great food and great wine pairings. The service was outstanding and they even parked my car for me and got us a shuttle home. I'm sure we will see you again for New Years Eve 2016 and many times before.

Tasting Menu with wine pairings delicious. It allows me to try different wines with each course that I may not have chosen for myself. Beef tenderloin done perfectly, crème brule the creamiest I have ever had. A wonderful dinner, as always. Thank you Jillian for passing on all your 'food knowledge'

Went for lunch on the 30th of January 2016. Meal was great, but the service was a bit slow. We were there for 1 hour and 45 minutes. We had no alcohol and just wanted to have a nice meal and continue our local activities. We had planned that it would take about 1 hour and 20 or 25 minutes.... More
