Great food and service. Location is a bit off the Main Street but that allows for less foot traffic around you.

Expected a lot better considering the cost.
Vegetables weren't very fresh, suprising considering it is in NOTL.

We dined at the restaurant on September 19th. We were seated quickly and our drink order was taken shortly after we were seated. The cocktails were well made and reasonably priced. The food was very good. the server Alexa was very polite and accommodating and the atmosphere romantic. It was a delight to be able to dine indoors
and we had a wonderful evening. We would have preferred a larger selection of wines that would include wines from California, Italy, New Zealand etc.

Rude and unorganized staff. Food is mediocre and overpriced. Save your time and money, and book else where for dinner.

Minimum selection but food was of high quality, fresh ingredients and very delicious. Staff were friendly and customer oriented. For an upscale resturant prices were in line with others and wine was reasonably priced.

I’m not typically a complainer but this one failed all around.
My wife had been a few years ago and had a great experience. When spending the night in NOTL for our anniversary recently we decided to have dinner here.
Cocktails were average at best.
Caprese salad had very little cheese and was absolutely drowning in balsamic. Caesar salad was fine.
Muscles were ok but portion size was small.
Chicken Supreme was terrible. Chicken was dry and chewy and the risotto had so much salt it was inedible.
Mentioned the salad to the server and got nowhere, didn’t bother mentioning the rest. Server should be more aware of an uneaten plate of food.
For the price and reputation this was a very disappointing experience.

A lovely dinner for a couples date night close to the lake and picturesque gardens. Comfortable enclosed and beautifully appointed patio seating.
Enjoyable smoked tomato soap and roasted chicken with mushroom truffle risotto. Spouse enjoyed crab cakes and seared salmon. All dishes were served promptly and piping hot. Jimmy was a fantastic host who served a delicious variation of the signature Oban cocktail for dinner and semisweet ice wine and espresso for dessert. Great value, exceptional service and atmosphere for an enjoyable dining experience!

Jimmy our waiter was very pleasant helpful and conversational.
One patron had their cell phone on and it kept binging which was disturbing but that’s not restaurant fault. With this level of dining maybe a cell phone reminder would be appreciated. Sad that people just don’t think of proper dining etiquette

Jimmy, our server was excellent. Took photos of us in the garden. Restaurant provided diners with a complimentary glass of bubbly as a welcome. Food was well prepared and met our expectations. Tables well spaced out and the dining room looks out on the garden.

Overall Restaurant Oban Inn was good but I have to say we went there for my husbands birthday and they new that because I put it in my reservation and they DID NOT acknowledge it whatsoever. Not even a simple candle on his desert. Very disappointed about that.
