The food seems to have deteriorated & the price increased in comparison to what it used to be .

Reason for overall and 4 star was due to the inability of the ONE wait staff to look after the guests while we were there. We waited 20 min to pay our bill. No fault of the single wait staff in this as she had to deal with a table that was unable to make up their minds as to their wine preference and she had to go over the list several times. Perhaps I should have given a 5 star in lieu
We will return.

The food is always amazing! However this pictular evening it took us an hour to get our meals. We were six people. The salad and entry took a long time too before our main course. It was definitely NOT the waitresses fault. Something else was not going right somewhere. It was not a packed house eithier at 8 00pm when we went.

We have been going to Lindsay Hobart’s for years. We have loved the food and the atmosphere but we were very disappointed this past visit. We are cottagers and last Friday was the first time this summer we were able to get there. We left feeling we wouldn’t go back. We were very disappointed in our meals and felt it was very pricey, more than the Keg and no comparison in food quality. We wondered if it had changed hands as we didn’t recognize any of our favourite staff. So disappointing.

Very disappointed on August 9th. We have frequented many times in last few years. We always had good dinner. Had guests from the U.S. We raved about this place. Service was terrible. Roast beef was not that good. Had to return as was cold. We had made reservations in advance as well. It was a costly bill..no apologies by server for delay at all. I also would suggest...as most high end steak places do...serve some bread in advance. Not sure if we will return again☹️

Great service,quiet place.... my sirloin steak was terrific tender and enough the vegetables cooked perfectly. Not a fast food place which is all there is in Lindsay.... a place to go for a special occasion.
Our friends enjoyed it even it was more than we usually spend for a dinner out. Birthday dinner....

Specials look amazing - need to come on a weeknight!
My hubby had the top sirloin, very tasty meal and comes with mushrooms mmm. The meat portion was a little small for him.
I had the beef bourgignon and I know I’m spelling it wrong, but it was by far the best I’ve had - and a good-sized portion too

Hobart’s always deliver outstanding food....and we enjoyed it very much. We did find the environment crowded and noisy - that did detract from our enjoyment. It was very expensive, also - since our bill was $400 plus, perhaps they could have comped us a platter of bread -$24 for 4 loaves of bread seems a bit excessive!

If I were to judge this experience alone,I most likely would not return,however I know how good this restaurant can be,and has always been, so I am willing to give it a pass this time. We weren't sitting in the main section of the dining room, so both my friend and I felt we were forgotten. I ordered the Cajun seafood chowder,however I had no spoon with which to eat it ,and by the time the server returned to check on us,I had eaten it as best I could ,using the fork and breadstick. My friend had a sandwich/ soup combo,and found it good. This was my friends first visit to your establishment, and I have to admit to apologizing to her. I fully realize being there for an nearly lunch,some of this should be overlooked and I will,however I was disappointed ,and you did ask. As of today I would recommend with an explanation.

I have always wanted to go to your restaurant and I'm so glad I did everything was fantastic, we arrived before the rush lol. Frank was great, and my compliments to the chefs and all whom work in the kitchen. It was amazing. The wine, the appetizers, best of all was our steaks! Just right on. Everthing was so yummie, couldn't help but take the rest with us. I will be recommending your establishment to many people. I know we were there a long time hope we didn't put you all off schedule. Thank you for your patience. Thank you & merci for a very delightful dining experience.

Enjoyed our 2nd visit to Hobart’s this past Sunday celebrating our anniversary 🎉🎉 The food and service were exceptional. Steaks were cooked to perfection. The right size accompanying vegetables were also done to perfection. We would not hesitate to recommend Hobart’s to anyone. Really enjoyed chatting with our server Sarah once the restaurant wasn’t so busy. We’ll definitely be back.

I took my daughter for her Birthday on March 19,2019
I found the interior very old and tired looking and very dark.
She had seafood linguine which was acceptable but not great.
I had Eggplant Parmigiana which was dreadful. It did resemble the Italian dish in anyway and was full of red and green, yellow peppers and uncooked onions. It was creamy and tasted awful, It was accompanied by a linguine side dish that was like eating a mass of white glue. I left most of my dinner.
We had a lovely server. He was excellent and they did serve what was called a Chocolate Pate with cherries and whipped cream. It was delicious. This was a free birthday offering with a sparkler. I thought that was very nice.
As a Vegetarian I found the word pate unpleasant.
We had small side salads, sparkling water, coffee but no alcohol. The dinner was over $90.00 plus tip. I gave the waiter 20% because he was so pleasant and gave us excellent service.
I am new to Lindsay and will never go back to Hobarts. I had thought it was one of Lindsay's 2 fine dining places.

I have always had a good experience at Hobart's Lindsay. Atmosphere and ambience peaceful and romantic; appetizers and drinks delivered and given a nice space of time to enjoy, friendly service with appropriate spaces and privacy, and the main course is always 10/10. This time I had a coffee and dessert and it did not disappoint either! Definitely would recommend to others to try Hobarts in Lindsay.

Asked for Caesars, received bloody Mary's.
Dinner- Had the top sirloin which was cooked appropriately. Broccoli was ready for the garbage as it was old, should never have been served like that. Could tell dinner had been sitting for a while, the baked potatoe was hard and dry on top.
Served very old coffee. After 3 creamers it was still dark. At this point is was also too cold to drink. Worst experience we have ever had here. Very disappointed.

Have been to Hobart’s many times before and we were really looking forward to our meal. However, there have been many changes to the menu that left us very disappointed. Paid $30 for a top sirloin dinner, and $14 for a kids sirloin dinner and got the exact same amount of food but paid very different price. Used to get a large amount of food for the price you paid, but now it is not worth the price for the small steak size you get.
