    As per usual the Oban delivers on every menu item, service and environment! We celebrated our engagement dinner here and the staff of the entire establishment is as always fantastic. This is the second time we have been there and so far all 4 items we have ordered have been spectacular. We will be back again without a doubt!

    We came to Niagara on the Lake a day early just so we could dine at the Oban Restaurant. We were not disappointed! The waitress remembered it was my birthday in 2 days and wished me a Happy Birthday. Our meals were beyond delicious...absolutely decadent! Then we didn't have room for dessert so as a complete surprise the waitress, Alexa, brought us each a complimentary glass of limoncello which is my favourite liqueur. The meal and experience were exceptional!

    My wife and I dined here last November and we were very pleased. This time, management had brought in an IDIOTIC RULE stating that coats could not be checked, because of COVID. UTTER NONSENSE. So, we folded up our coats and put them on a table. In a high-end restaurant. Where you spend $100 a person, with wine/dessert. Or MORE. The young man that seated us was polite and accomodating. Our server, Alexa, was the consummate professional, as she was in Nov/22. She is a GEM ! The vegetables for all 3 meals were very salty and I told Alexa, who told the kitchen. Other than that, all was well.

    The Oban Inn restaurant is our "go to" restaurant in Niagara on the Lake. You can always be assured that you will receive wonderful food, service and ambiance. Rather pricey but I don't mind paying for good food and service.

    It was a fixed price New Years Eve menu. They ran out of beef tenderloin which was the choice of two in our party. They substituted rib eye for one of the tenderloin dinners. Only two scallops per dinner. Lobster portion was very small and wrapped in soggy pastry with no vegetables. I expected way better from this restaurant considering we paid $90 per person.

    We had a reservation at the 530 NY eve seating but arrived at 545. We were rushed every step of the way. No AF options other than orange juice and sparkling water. Had to ask to order wine for the person drinking wine, the wine list was was whisked away when a pre dinner cocktail was ordered. No opportunity to enjoy that before the food arrived. Wait staff was pleasant but obviously inexperienced. The food was good but it would have been nice to have a few minutes or more between courses. We were out the door at 7 and will not return.

    Service was attentive and unobtrusive; outstanding! In a sea of uninspired or just plain bad caesar salads, Oban's was true stand-out. Their Duck Confit was moist and the skin perfectly done; the sour cherry sauce tasty but somewhat too sparingly plated. The Mascarpone creamsauce used in the Lobster Spaghetti was truly fine although somewhat more lobster meat would have been appreciated. Overall, an excellent experience in Niagara-on-the-Lake! Recommended!

    Lovely place to eat. Service was very attentive yet non intrusive. I had the duck confit-delicuous, meat fell off the bone and perfectly crispy. Definitely recommend. The crab cakes were very enjoyable, as was the scallop/tiger shrimp dish. I would go back again.

    The Oban is our neighborhood favorite. The menu & food is excellent. Sarah and Eddie provide outstanding service and the Oban never disappoints. Its hard to choose between confit duck, lobster spaghetti, rack of lamb, crab cakes or the soup of the day! But somehow, we manage.
