Fabulicious dinner $42 for three courses an excellent value. Found the restaurant very cold, moved tables but still cold. Food was good, not sure what to make of runny green puree with rainbow trout, the fish was superb. Service very good.

We ate supper there this evening on an app/main/dessert plan through a local hotel. Really enjoyed the experience as the HobNob is located in the Charles Hotel, a vintage and small hotel in downtown Niagara-on-the-Lake. Excellent food and service all around.
