From the moment we walked through the door, we were very pleased with the atmosphere, service and ambiance at the Hobnob. Our server was on the ball and promptly attending to our table between courses to collect dishes and check in to see how we were enjoying everything. The food was fantastic! Nice sized portions that were beautifully served. We... More

For the very first time we did a Christmas lunch out. As only half our family made the 'road trip' there was 4 of us. We booked a late lunch for 2pm as our intention was to make an afternoon of it. Firstly the building is lovely, well appointed and tastefully decorated. It was reasonably full when we arrived and... More

Dined at the Hob Nob on the first evening of our stay at The Charles. Food, service, and the wine were all excellent. Would recommend this restaurant.

There are so many wonderful restaurants in the area in and around Niagara-on- the Lake. It would be easy to overlook Hob Nob in the Charles Inn. It would be a mistake to overlook it. There are not that many white linen places around and Hob Nob is exceptional in a number of respects: the wine list is very well... More

We love trying out new places during Niagara's Fabulicious Week but we always return to our favourites to enjoy their cuisine at an attractive price. Hob Nob was no different--we were served their regular award winning food served by regular staff with top-notch skills.

Hi there goodguyverne, I'm happy to read about another satisfied guest from our Fabulicious event. Even with the high volume of diners and the attractive pricing we never let our service slip, which is why guests such as yourself come back time and again. We look forward to seeing at our next event over the winter months if not sooner. More

The Charles Hotel offers two dining options - the Hob Nob Restaurant and the Hob Nob lounge. The lounge is much more cozy feeling like a family living room and offering a more casual dining experience than the formal restaurant. The full restaurant menu is available but the lounge menu has some great options including the chicken pot pie (it... More

This was my second visit to the Hob Nob with a group of girlfriends. First time we finished off a wine tour here with a pre set menu and wine pairing! This time it was simply a pre set menu. We ordered bottles separately. I have a gluten allergy and they were able to accommodate my needs graciously. This is... More

My husband and I had dinner here on the evening we checked into the Charles Hotel (restaurant located at hotel). We chose the tasting menu and we were very happy with our choice: rabbit and scallop; foie gras; pickerel; tenderloin followed by cheese and chocolate. Would not have changed one item! All were delicious.

I recently ordered the " Coq au Vin " and was shocked to see fried chicken on a mound of mashed potatoes. Very disappointed and when I questoned it, was told this was the chef's interpretation of coq au vin. ????? Overpriced, and an lack of creation.
