A quick run in out of the rain after theatre resulted in a memorable dining experience. Although we did not have reservations, we were graciously accommodated at the bar by Stephen (an absolute gem!) and Kim until such time that the dining room opened. Our meal and service was exactly what I expected from the surroundings. It is high end,... More

My metaphor: A simple appetizer of fried cheese, with greens? Wonderful! Set the mood for the entire meal. (Much of the cuisine is gatro-fusion) Nice relaxed atmosphere. The restaurant is a hotel restaurant. The food and service impressed us so much, "We checked out the hotel," and will stay in the hotel with our next visit. A must go if... More

The service and server did an excellent job, and went beyond what most servers provide in most restaurants. Next time I'm in the area, I will be going back. The food was very tasty, and portions were very satisfactory.

I wanted to love the Oban Inn. The servers, venue, location and atmosphere were all wonderful. We were on a wine tour so maybe that limited our menu options but not one thing on the menu looked desirable. We ordered the veal and lentils, and my friend found the veal dry and the flavouring on the lentils was lacklustre. Also,... More

I am not sure what the complaints are this is not a fast food restaurant but do they pump out great food when you are pressed for time! Good food takes time, anyone heard of the slow food movement? That being said we dined there early in the week and our server Dawn was exceptionally accommodating as was the kitchen... More

We had heard wonderful things about this restaurant so we were excited to try it out. Unfortunately it did not live up to our expectations. If you are looking for a good meal at a reasonable price this is not the place for you. Four of us had the filet, it was good but not great.. One member of our... More

Excellent location, gardens, food and service. Such a pretty garden. My salad was wonderful. We visited on a sunny July 16, 2014 weekday.

We were staying at the Inn and had booked dinner for our first night. It was very quiet - only one other table occupied - perhaps an indication of what was to come. The service was adequate, but not especially attentive, knowledgeable or friendly. Our appetizers were both bland to the point of tasteless - the bouillabaisse and the "Waldorf"... More

the massages me and my fiance both had were nice, but compared to the other (many) spa offerings around I was surprised about the lack of amenities - actually, none besides a steam room. The steam room itself smelled very dank and the steam pipe made some rickity sounds whenever it blasted some steam. The mens showers had two 'stalls'... More

Beautiful Inn - close to the water's edge and away from the busy tourist main street. Gorgeous flower garden and very pretty entrance into spa. Free parking on site. Visited over July 4th weekend for an early dinner. For the higher price, and upscale ambience, the service for us was very low. We left wishing we had eaten elsewhere although... More
