We enjoyed a truly delicious meal and excellent service on a beautiful outdoor covered porch. The Charles Hotel is lovely inside and out and we will definitely return.

The food was reasonable but could have had slightly more bold flavours for the price. This is considered fine dining and would be a nice night out.

The restaurant is in The Charles Hotel, a big old Victoria home, complete with chandeliers and striking mouldings, patio doors, deep windows, white tablecloths. The food was excellent. I had the baby romaine salad den with a roasted buttermilk dressing, smoked bacon, and lemon. For my entree I chose the Chinook Salmon. It as baked to perfection...meltdown in my mouth.... More

We ate at Hob Knobs as part of the Vintage wine tour. Fantastic food set in the Charles Hotel. Lovely formal meal in a relaxed atmosphere. Lovely selection of wines to go with the meal.

Every dish was excellent: well prepared and served. It is slightly away from the hustle and bustle of the town. It is very elegant.

Though not completely handicapped accessible, the place is very charming. Nice menu, but it doesn't describe all the ingredients of a dish. Fish arrived with nuts that my husband is allergic to.

We returned for the third or fourth time and were not disappointed. Menu is interesting and avant garde. The tasting menu is the way to go if you have the capacity. Not sure, but it may have to be ordered for the whole table. After the amuse bouche we enjoyed a salad and an asparagus veloute (soup), then split the... More

We dined at the Hobnob a few years ago and it was very, very good. Unfortunately, this time the restaurant is no longer up to the standards it use to be a few years ago. The atmosphere was very stale; the dining room was dirty and very poorly lit. The service was bland and the food was horrible. The food... More
