The Woodlawn Inn
very nice place for date night, the food was outstanding with great service.
A wonderful dinner. Had not dined here in over 30 years. Food was excellent, staff were very friendly. We will be back again.
This has been our favorite restaurant since moving to Cobourg over 10 years ago. This is no fast food or franchise restaurant.
It is Cobourg's only fine dining establishment. It is best in class. The owners are excellent inn keepers and know how to make those evenings out an extraordinary experience. Service, the menu, the wine cellar, chef and ambiance are outstanding.
Always a great dining experience. Great food, atmosphere and the wine is always on point.
Went to the restaurant for the first time to celebrate my sister's 60th birthday. The service and food were exceptional. Everyone in the party really enjoyed it. Very welcoming and never felt rushed. Definitely a do again
This is a wonderful restaurant with a strong feeling of history when we dined there. The chandeliers are beautiful, the setting is wonderful and the food is second to none. I loved my meal. The staff were wonderful. I felt a bit like royalty actually. Wonderful place.
Superb experience. Everything from the ambience, the food and the service was A1.
We enjoyed everything about our dinner to celebrate my husbands birthday! The food, service and atmosphere were perfect!
Excellent service and atmosphere.
Food was delicious.
Had a lovely prix fixe dinner- the butternut squash soup was delicious (but was served waaay too hot and burned my mouth), schnitzel was perfectly cooked and presented, creme brule was the best that I have had!
WE HAD A LOVELY LUNCH WITH SUPERIOR SERVICE AND DELICIOUS FOOD
I true great vintage inn. The service the quality is over the top!
Have been many times and look forward to returning!!!
Great experience as usual, food is always high quality.
The Holiday Menu is a great choice, gave me a chance to try different dishes which are available during the Holiday Season.
Fantastic food - fresh and delicious and wonderful attention to detail. Will be back!
Brunch on a Sunday for four......lovely old inn but the food was mediocre at best. My Reuben was very dry with the rye toasted and burnt rather than grilled properly.Very little sauerkraut...had to eat with a knife and fork. The apple pancakes and eggs benny were ok but the ravioli as a main was very small. Our server was attentive and pleasant. Would not return
The steak had to be send back twice. Seriously, twice. I asked whether it is cooked from frozen, given how tough and overcooked. Bigger concern is the wait-staff. Slow, unhappy, uninformed. It isn't appropriate to approach a patron with"What do ya want?" in taking an order. We and the couple beside had to keep asking for things, could we have our drinks, could we have the bread. Seriously inadequate wait-staff. Two meals at the Woodlawn Inn. There won't be a third.
My cousin and I drove out from Toronto to The Woodlawn Inn for a get together birthday celebration for the both of us. We really enjoyed the food and ambience at Woodlawn and would be delighted to return.
Most likely around Christmas.
Thanks very much for a wonderful afternoon.

Could not have enjoyed our one night (Classic Package) any more. Arrived post golf and checked in to a nice large room (up a long set of stairs - but our bags were light!). Enjoyed a beer in the bar where the Inn Keeper (and so sorry to not remember the name!) introduced himself and made sure all was good. Had a wonderful dinner with excellent service, a nice bottle of wine from a very extensive list) and as a result enjoyed a great sleep. Up early for breakfast as we had an early t time to make. Breakfast was outstanding. Check out a breeze. All in all a great stay and will be back.
We loved it. Went for a 50th birthday celebration. Perfect spot!
We had high expectations but...Crab bisque tasted like tomato soup with no hint of crab; Vegetable tower was all the same texture (mush)...the lentils were OK; my caesar salad was totally limp and tasted like it was made days before; my lamb, if that's what it was, had very little meat (which was overly done) but lots of fat and was way overpowered by the sauce ($36+!); the mashed potatoes tasted like they were made yesterday and had no flavour. My wife had the Prix Fixe (fish) and was happy with it but not $50 worth of happy.
This was to be a celebratory gift from one of our sons. My wife and I live in Cobourg so this was convenient but that's about it, although the setting was pleasant enough.
Had my son not been there I would have returned the salad and the lamb but I didn't wish to spoil this for him although he did mention the soup and tower to our server who offered to get him something else.
All in all, we will not be going back.
It's always a pleasure to dine in the lovely dining room at the Woodlawn. My two guests and I enjoyed the evening and we were all fully satisfied by the meal. The lobster bisque was excellent as was my wife's Manitoulin trout entree. I enjoyed my dish of lobster tail, scallops and shrimp - just thought there could have been one or two more scallops and shrimp; but the sauce was delicious. My granddaughter thoroughly enjoyed her pasta dish. We all had dessert - generally good. The service was outstanding and the ambience was perfect.
Our group of 3 stayed overnight and also enjoyed dinner there. Marisa was pleasant and most helpful when we arrived. The Inn is centrally located and parking is included. We would like to return and stay longer the next time.
Lovely atmosphere, great food and service.reasonable price for a fine dining experience. I would definitely recommend
we always enjoy the Woodlawn and definately recommend to others. We find it great for business meetings and the ambience is more conducive to talking than many spots
I got the Prix fixe menu and it was some of the best food I've ever had! Perfectly cooked, perfectly seasoned, and the service was wonderful.
I hosted a lunch for friends, brothers who live in Kenora and London, U.K. The food was wonderful as usual and the setting very comfortable. The service was excellent, and she was able to deliver the bill to me so that I could pay before the long-armed men could grab it. Because there was a large party in the next room, we did nicotine rush to leave and say good- bye to each other for another year.
One point, most of us ordered the prix- fix menu as it makes sense at lunch; however, my daughter who is vegetarian could not substitute a vegetarian entree, the ravioli, that was a lower price and had to order a la Carte. As a younger person who watches the expenses, she felt awkward about that. Although I was not concerned about the cost, perhaps it is time to include a vegetarian option to the Menu
I look forward to my next good reason to dine at the Woodlawn.
My son and daughter-in-law were visiting from Texas and I wanted to treat them to a nice dinner out for one of their evenings here. The service was excellent and the food was excellent. My 2 sons had a steak that they both raved about. I would certainly recommend it to my friends and/or anyone visiting. Our thanks to the Chef for a delicious dinner!
Food was great and the service was very good.
First date! Was very quiet with excellent food and quiet enough to chat in length! Thank you your meal special was great value and we enjoyed every course!
The shrimp and crab omelette my husband had was tiny but delicious. My apple pancakes didn’t have enough apples on them (1/4 apple total at most) and the pancakes were dry. The service was good I just wouldn’t go back for brunch.
Amazing food! And my wife is
Picky! She loved it!
It was everything that we expected and hoped for. The food was excellent - great taste and good portions. The service was also excellent -- very pleasant and efficient server. The ambience was good, but nothing particularly noteworthy. It was a quiet room, although there was only one other occupied table at the other end of the room with about 10 women. It was quite expensive, but, then again, I expected that. It is a place that I would recommend for people to go to celebrate something, not a place to go for dinner each week.
The Woodlawn is an excellent choice. It is elegant and subdued with excellent food and very pleasant surroundings.
Enjoyable evening. Thank you
Food was excellent. Service fast and friendly
Mother's Day Brunch made this a special occasion and the Woodlawn Inn carried this out with flying colours. The blending of a hot meal with the buffet for a single price was a nice touch. The dessert table was spectacular.
As usual the food and service were exemplary Good attention to detail and personal contact between owners and guests is always appreciated. A GEM in the unfortunate world where such fine dining establishments are few and far between.
Great food, great service. Our favourite restaurant in Cobourg. Never disappointed.
Very nice restaurant. The wines were unusually good.
The food was phenomenal. The employees courteous, and accommodating. The gluten free bread was great. Friday night the volume was quite loud, but Saturday and Sunday breakfasts were nice and quiet.
