Restaurant Oban Inn
Dine in our delightful sunroom overlooking lush English gardens or cozy historic Shaw's Corner and in the chic elegance of our fireside dining room. Ideal for intimate dining or for group celebrations for up to 60 guests. Located only 2-blocks from Queen Street and minutes walk to nearby Shaw Festival Theaters.
Savor delicious "Four Diamond" creations combining Oban classics with modern gastronomy focusing on the Niagara Region's fresh ingredients married with the outstanding harvest of Niagara Wines.
Our waiter, Jimmie, did an outstanding job. The steak was good and the scallops were tender and juicy. The Baco Noir was excellent.
The Oban is so very pretty and is a quiet venue for dinner. Service was excellent and the prices reasonable for the quality of the food. There are choices for all dietary considerations and one can easily substitute or add as desired. The red curry cod was delicious but the fish was a bit salty. The beer and cheddar soup was so tasty. One of my dining companions enjoyed the avocado carpaccio very much. Some of our diners declared the scallops cooked to perfection. All in all, a lovely way to celebrate a birthday in Niagara-on-the-Lake.
The host was very rude. Our waiter was awful ignorant and rude. Food was subpar
A terrible experience. We will never go back!!
Great location. Nice server
Ecxtremely limited and overpriced wine list. None of the outstanding VQA wines made the list. We were hoping to see a huge list of Niagara regional wine. Not so.
Appetizer (potato soup) was quite good. Muscles were dried out and not very fresh. Stringy?
Would not recommend to someone seeking excellent wine list and food.
2.5 out of 5
Always good. They are always accommodating with allergies.
The setting, ambience and wait staff were all quite good. I had a caprese salad that was so salty it was almost inedible..also had the mussels...there were less than a dozen of them and for the price, not worth it. One of the others had the pork chop and it was over cooked..All in all, the food was a huge disappointment.
We've been to the Oban Inn Restaurant many times and it is consistently good. Friendly people and great food in a nice environment.
We were feted with a window table looking out onto the garden, a white-breasted hawk high in a tree across the road, setting us up for delights to come. Our waitress was attentive and skilled. My wife loved her cosmopolitan, our wines excellent. The salads and main dish delicious and beautiful. This was a meal to savor. We will definitely return.
Pleasant atmosphere in dining room. Quiet at first although as the restaurant filled it became quite noisy but not overly so.
Menu had something for everybody and the food quality was good with reasonable prices for main course items.
We always enjoy both eating and staying at the Oban Inn and Spa. The service is warm, engaging and efficient as well as being helpful in the making of choices and wine selections. We'll be back!
Great place for a romantic dinner. Food is delicious and beautifully presented.
Good wine list and service is friendly .
Every time I go here I'm blown away, the service, the food, the ambiance, the wine, the cocktails...simply outstanding in every way.
We have been coming to the Oban Inn for dinner for several years now. This time though it was definitely not a memorable occasion. The server was trying hard to help but unfortunately they were under staffed. It took 3/4 hour to receive a drink and another 3/4 hour to receive our food. There was no apology as to why. Did not come back to ask if we would like wine with dinner or dessert.
Under these conditions , I would not recommend this restaurant. We had dinner the night before somewhere else and everything was perfect.
Awesome staff, and food was top notch!
Food a good restaurant to visit before our evening at the Shaw Festive theatre.
Lovely room and good menue selection
We had a lovely time. The duck breast was a bit tough though. Everything else - great!
Restaurant Oban overall was disappointing. While my meal was fine, my 3 dinner companions were underwhelmed with theirs. The wine by the glass list is extremely limited. In general the prices are higher than expected relative to the quality of the food. The decor is lovely, and our waitress was terrific.
A must when in NOTL, a very welcoming restautant, fabulous service (Brian is very professionnal and friendly), outstanding food (best ever wild mushroom Risotto, kudos to the chef)! Beautiful garden view! Rita
Not a very big menu but remarkably well executed..
Food was amazing, calamari, spaghetti, and pork chop all amazing. Finished off with a great hazelnut creme dessert.. unfortunate when our food disappeared so did our server. Took an exceptionally long time to get our check and pay.
Wonderful dinner! I had the duck and my husband had the lamb. Delicious!
Always delicious, best n NOTL
The food was fantastic! The setting was beautiful! The restaurant seemed flawless, which is hard to pull off. Everyone in our party was impressed by the quality and service. I would strongly recommend this restaurant to anyone interested in a fine dining experience.
Of the fine dining we enjoyed in Niagara-on-the-lake, this was our favorite. Everything was simply a little bit better than the fine restaurants we also enjoyed. The Caesar Salad was a revelation, with double-smoked bacon adding a depth and richness that blew us away. The bone-in pork chop was amazingly juicy, with a wonderful, very light char that added smokiness and savoriness to each and every bite. The lamb was perfectly done, and the zucchini had a light crispness even as each and every slice melted in your mouth.
The rain outside was torrential, but the staff and atmosphere made for a very cozy, lovely pre-theater dinner. We were accommodated when we asked to split the scallop pasta dish as an appetizer. We would definitely return on our next visit to Niagara-on-The-Lake.
Everything was great. Our server, Alexa was spectacular. She took great care of our party of 4.
The ambiance of Oban Inn's restaurant is delightful. The service was also very good, our server Miranda checked with us often to make sure everything was okay. The one fault we found was the size of the entree portions. I had duck breast that consisted of four small slices. The vegetables accompanying the duck breast were the best part of the meal.
Lovely, quiet small restaurant attached to the Obama Inn& Spa. Service was friendly, nice selection of unique dishes and the scallops were cooked perfectly!
Good and creative food with quality ingredients. Excellent/personable service in a beautiful environment. An overall pleasurable and memorable experience.
Great food and great service.
My wife and I very much enjoyed our Sunday lunch. It was not very busy, so that kept the noise level quite low. Good for aging ears. :-)
The food was very good.
Our server, Christine, was professional, friendly and engaging. She added to the pleasurable experience.
We will return and recommend...
All 3 of us Had good muscles. (Though husband had 2 bad ones) Spring salad was excellent. Cold pineapple & cilantro soup was quite tasty. Bread is fresh & flavorful. We go back every year. Flowers in garden are gorgeous.
Lunch with my daughter. We ordered quiche. It was hard, overlooked and rather unpalatable. I so advised the server.
The food and service was great. Good prices for an upscale restaurant in Niagara On The Lake. Deffienetly will be back.
Gave 4 stars because everybody can improve somewhere. Service follow-up to see if we were doing OK happened near the end of each course, which was a little too late to rectify problems. We did not order drinks and were potentially smaller tippers than a larger table beside us. The other table got more regular/frequent follow-ups than we did once the restaurant started to fill up. Our tip was 20% of total bill so we were not cheap tippers.
The menu was both extensive and pleasing, offering a variety of quality selections from appetizers to entries.
The wine list contained a very good selection of wines from the Niagara region. Our server help with the selection of an excellent Cabernet Franc.
Everyone enjoyed their meal, as the presentation and quality of food was 91/100.
The ambiance within the restaurant was pretty much ideal for a quite dinner. The lighting was low. The garden view was ideal.
I definitely recommend the Restaurant Oban Inn.
The Obama Inn was excellent. The food, service and ambiance was great. We will look forward to returning. It allows you to be in Niagara on the Lake but a short but appreciated distance from the crowds.
We invited guests for lunch and looked forward to eating in a 4star CAA recommended restaurant. We were disappointed with our main entrees . 3 of the guests ordered the Quiche..it was very flat, certainly not fluffy and light as it should be. I ordered the Grilled chicken sandwich and it came with a very burnt and dark brown order of fries. Looked like they were fried in old grease. The chicken itself was okay but the bacon was black and crisp. Not sure if the pretzel bun it the right type of bun for this sandwich. Overall, really disappointed.
Wine selection by the glass was just ok. Food and service were great.
