Its strange to find a restaurant that offers high end food and dining experience inside a club, however Hobarts certainly does deliver on both of those. The food was exquisite. The chef certainly has set out to challenge you when it comes to your preconceptions of food and weaves a delightful menu. If you have preconceived notions about how a... More

We went to Hobarts for the first time last night (belated Valentines dinner). Best kept secret ever! I cannot believe that restaurant has been there so long and we didn't know about it! It was amazing! Every dish was delicious from beginning to end! Lesley Taylor is at the top of the food chain with that amazing 7 course degustation... More

To celebrate our 44th wedding anniversary, we looked in the AGFG for a one-hat restaurant in the Newcastle area and decided on Hobarts (although it is within a club environment). We had been to other one hat restaurants in the Pokolbin area previously. In summary, we had a thoroughly enjoyable evening. The service was excellent with wait staff being knowledgeable... More

We were looking forward to an exceptional evening at this highly rated restaurant at Wests. The comfortable seating, well spaced tables and pleasant decor provided the basis for a good experience. The breads and black garlic butter had us licking our lips. We shared a bottle of rose champagne which was beautifully presented in good glassware. The menu was full... More

My husband and I dined at Hobarts for our 5th anniversary recently and chose the 5 course degustation menu with wine match. The pros were the presentation of the courses - highly creative and beautiful. The Taylor made Monet dessert was also as gorgeous to see as it tasted. The service was efficient for the most part. The cons were... More

Late review but my husband and I enjoyed this restaurant in October and absolutely loved it! Easily one of Newcastle's best restaurants. The service was great and the food was to die for. The dessert was easily the highlight of the evening - I won't spoil it but make sure you ask for their speciality dessert. WOW!!!!

Years ago, in the 1990s I went to Hobarts as it was THE restaurant to go to in Newcastle - there being a dearth of fine dining establishments. I remember laughing at how stuck in a time warp they were: silver service, white gloves, chateaubriand carved at the table, flaming crepes suzette prepared at table-side. Pretentious presentation of otherwise simple... More

We had been wanting to visit Hobart's for ages so thought NYE was the go. Personally I was a little disappointed. It is a lovely venue, service is excellent, fine dining but the food was bland. The menu reads impressively and served beautifully but a bit more attention to flavour was needed. On saying that The Monet was impressive. Enjoyed... More

We absolutely loved our meals that we came back a week later with another couple and we had the 5 course degustation! Amazing food and loved the Monet dessert. Will be back again.

This is something everyone should try. Lots of dry ice and liquid nitrogen. Desert was so much entertainment not for just my table but everyone one around us. Every meal was perfect.
