cabin - Hockley Valley Resort
My husband treated me to dinner for my birthday tonight. We were super psyched to try The Cabin as we had heard good things about it. Too bad we were disappointed. This is a family restaurant with lots of young kids so not ideal for a quiet romantic meal.
The food was great for the appetizer course. Hubby had the seafood Zuppa which was delish, I had the scallops which were cooked to perfection. Then it was all downhill from there. The entrees took 45 minutes to come out-I ordered the tenderloin medium rare, hubby ordered the lamb, medium well. My tenderloin was ice cold in the middle and inedible. After flagging down our server (Alexandra), she was very apologetic and took it back to heat up. After another 30 minutes it finally came but by then I was over it and not hungry any more so I just asked for the desert menu hoping to get my favourite creme brûlée, which was on their online menu but to my disappointment it was not on the menu tonight. My husband asked if they had it and Alexandra explained that they had it in the restaurant downstairs and she could have one brought up for me. I said if it was going to take long not to bother as we had already been there for over 2 hours and had had enough of a wait. She promised it would not take long so I was appreciative that she would go the extra mile to try to make things right. Well another 30 minutes go by during which time I see my special order desert with a candle go by- to another table. Finally Alexandra came by to explain my crime brûlée was taken by someone else and they were going to get another one. This was the icing on the cake and we just said thanks but no thanks and called it a night. I’m pretty sure it was just my dumb birthday luck that they couldn’t get it right for us because all the tables around us came and went seemingly without issues. Overall the food was tasty but cold, service was friendly but very slow. Would not chance it again at this place though. Not a great bd dinner for me. Too bad
Great food, great service overall great experience.
We went to Cabin to celebrate our wedding anniversary. It was a great evening, made all the better by the fabulous service from our waiter Jarek.
Nice environment; service was great; food was not exceptional; fish entrée was poor, small portion, would strongly not recommend
Taylor made our night! Good was superb - strip loin, lamb.
The food was excellent and the service was amazing. I had the lamb dish and it was of the best I’ve had . The Atmosphere was very relaxed and comfortable. I will definitely be coming back.
Don't order the meat and cheese platters. The portion for 4 people is ridiculously considering they charge $35. Plus the meat was hard and dry.
Excellent server and staff
I'm lucky enough to live close by but nomatter where you come from, this truly is a destination experience! The total feel of Cabin is versatile and fun, jeans and a nice shirt or suit and tie, a warm and stylish decor think 'Manhattan sheek' but incredibly warm and cozy. Service is top notch from hostess to wait staff, Raj in particular is a master of his craft...attentive yet polite and relaxed. Sit at the chef's table if you're in a pair or group of four, you'll get to see the kitchen in full swing, chat with the chefs and watch some magic in the open concept design. Food is consistently great if not outstanding, Hockley makes their own cheeses, cured meats, garden veggies and now wine in their signature lable Adamo. Vast menu, rich game meat to creative vegetarian and luxurious pastas. Prices are quite fair, glasses of wine for $9 and entrees for $20. You can make it a modest night or go all out but even the highest prices are reasonable. Don't let the fact that it's a resort intimidate you, this place is for everyone even kids. Favorite place to bring my friends to show off our unique community!
The food and service was great.
Rachael and other staff amazing!
We loved it!
The turkey dinner was the best we have ever had ( only one better is grammas home cooked)
Chef Joseph's attention to detail was evident.
The whole experience was “fun”
Client tried to pay for our meal . As this was our 20 th anniversary. Front desk refused to confirm our reservation. Took all his credit card info and then did nothing. Will not recommend this resort to anyone looking for a great meal
Great restaurant and ambiance. Service was quick however didn’t feel rushed. Noise level is slightly loud but overall enjoyed the food and decor
Very nice atmosphere. Food was very good with a variety of items. Service was excellent. They were aware of allergies & made sure that everything was done properly. Highly recommended.
Great quality of food outside of the city. Tenderloin was excellent to share with the gnocchi for an indulgent meal. The Zolla Primitivo was a good value for under $100 on the wine list!
We were there with a bridal party as a dinner the night before a wedding and Taylor our server was amazing! Great food, great wine and overall great experience!
Amazing food and good service. The chef is a master of his cuisine
Great food and atmosphere! First time in 22 years I’ve seen my daughter eat everything on her plate! Lol
Excellent food, excellent service at restaurant. Nice ambiance, however overall a little too loud; almost too noisy for a dinner environment.
We had an excellent dining experience at Cabin. Our server was attentive and helpful. We've eaten at Cabin many times before and keep returning because we love Chef! He is personable and welcoming, and we always feel taken care of. The food was delicious, prepared just as requested (I had the tenderloin), beautifully plated and timed just right so that one course flowed perfectly to the next. We also love that they are using so many ingredients from their own on site garden.
Our meal was excellent. The atmosphere was great. Unfortunately our waiter seemed very rushed all the time, left the table when only 3 of 4 guests had ordered had to call him back to inform he didn’t take an order. Missed a couple items so they had to be ordered later then the other items that should have gone together.
All around a nice experience but a little more approachable/aware server would have made it outstanding.
A note though the servers at the patio restaurant at lunch were amazing, Rachel and Jennifer were so friendly and knowledgeable.
All in all a great weekend
Dined at Cabin for 2 evenings. Appetizers and entrees were excellent. Our servers were very pleasant, professional, and attentive. Unfortunately, we found the desserts not very satisfying ( we had the torta and peanut butter cheesecake). Also, on the second night our dessert came immediately but we had to wait 10-15 for our cappuccinos. They were barely room temperature when they arrived at our table. I didn't even drink mine. Very disappointing way to end an otherwise perfect diner.
My wedding anniversary.
Need more vegetarian and vegan options. Not very accommodating towards customers with allergies and specific deitary requirements. No alternates suggested by server.
The food and service at the Cabin is superb. Our server Raj was excellent. Would highly recommend the seafood risotto and the mussels
when I made reservations we could get 6.30 or 8.30 and we were hoping for 7-7.30 because we had a couple come up from Toronto, when we got there at 6.30 we were the only table , so I wish we could have got our time. anyway we were greeted by a waiter who was very nice and made us feel welcome
we had a drink and chated and the waiter did not push us on ordering, after our drink we order our food and a bottle of wine
the food was very good and just the right size portions, but we needed another bottle of wine to finish the evening off
our guests enjoyed the evening and we will go again and will recommend the Cabin to others
Food was excellent but it took a long time to get drinks from the bar and wine cellar.
Though cabin is quite expensive it is worth the food quality and the obvious skill level of the Chefs preparing the food. The food was phenomenal and Raj's service was excellent and friendly.
Food was very good , the server was very attentive and recommended a few dishes. My husbands tenderloin was cooked to perfection. Overall a good dinner
Excellent meal last week with excellent service from Jarek. Highly recommended.
Great food, the best part of the Resort. Easy reservations, attentive service, the fresh past excellent!
This is my second rime coming to the Cabin for mother’s day and it never disappoints. The ambiance, the food quality and the service are all incredible!! Thank you!!
Pasta was overcooked. Definitely not al dente. Fish in the seafood linguine tasted a little off. Salad presentation and taste was wonderful.
Food was very good and portion sizes were perfect. Great atmosphere and energy.
Nice little restaurant. I thought the service could have been better...it was empty when we came in for lunch, but it took a while for food to arrive.
12th year wedding anniversary.
Excellent very pleased with food and service...acoustically it could use some work.
Other than that...excellent all around
Across the Board
Taylor was fantastic! Pleasant manners and the best service I have ever received while dining. He made recommendations that did not disappoint. The Cabins food was the best food I've ever had! 10/10
It was my 60th birthday. We had a lovely meal and when the waitress heard it was my birthday, she brought 2 complimentary champagne glasses of Prosecco to help us celebrate. The food and the service were both excellent!
