This was our first time trying this restaurant. We booked our table in advance using the Open Table online reservation system. Our table was ready on time for us. The hostess was friendly and I saw her sanitizing the handrails very often throughout our visit....Our server Jo was very friendly and helpful. My boyfriend got a caesar and as soon as Jo put it down on the table, she realized she hadn't added alcohol and so she admitted that and picked it back up immediately, before he even drank any, and rectified that. We had a little laugh at that. The caesar was very tasty, and comes with a pepperette, a spicy bean, and a little hot pepper - it's a little appetizer! We both ordered the seafood linguine jambalaya dish. The menu states that it comes with shrimp, scallops, chicken and spicy sausage. The sauce was lovely, a really nice flavour, but we did find it quite runny/watery. Might have been nicer if it were a little more creamy/thick than it was. The portion size was great, just enough linguine and toppings to make me full. We each got three very large (jumbo) shrimp that were perfectly cooked, very tasty. The chicken was good also. Both of our dishes however arrived with no scallops at all. I mentioned this to our server and she was very apologetic and ran to the kitchen to see about getting us some. She also came by to give us an update that they were coming out soon. She brought us each five scallops which had been freshly cooked and done to perfection (not overcooked and rubbery - they were perfect). The manager also apologized to us about the scallops and they brought us a complimentary dessert to share, I assume to help make up for the two mistakes. The dessert was the chocolate mousse that has cherry in it - it was delicious! Rich, creamy chocolate mousse, very decadent. Overall a nice experience and would dine here again. I do not mind when a restaurant makes a mistake - things happen! What I care about is how they handle it. Rather than being defensive and/or argumentative (which I have experienced at some other restaurants), they "owned" it, were apologetic, corrected it immediately, and even provided something complimentary. That is the correct way to handle it.More

We came to Hobarts for my Birthday dinner and were very pleased with everything. James was our server and he was fantastic. We shared the Chateaubriand (Saturday dinner special) and it was delicious as well as filling. There was more than enough food to share...and we took home leftovers. We’ll definitely be coming back for dinner.More

We went in and my partner cut his steak and it was well done on the outside. We didn't cut the middle and sent it back. Well the manager came back and cut it and said isn't that what you like insinuating that we sent...it back for no reason. If he had of said look the middle is okay we would have taken it back. The manager continued to press my partner if this steak was medium rare, it actually got really silly. My lobster was overdone, my steak was really good I must say, but no atmosphere, cheap furniture, very bright, not a steakhouse atmosphere. If you want a good steak with no atmosphere this is the restaurant for you. Also the shame being we just relocated from the City and go out for dinner at least twice per week, but this service was unacceptable and we won't return.More

The new atmosphere is great. The menu is ecclectic... just what I hoped for from a restaurant that has a bonafide Chef. We really liked our meals (group of 4).

Hmmmm. Loved this place for the steak and casual atmosphere. Last time we went it was sooo bright, felt like it was a cafeteria Was told that they were not allowed to dim the lights as per instructions from the new owners. Haven't gone back...and it's lost it's appeal.More

The meal was excellent. The servings were well portioned. The main issue was that we had a early dinner reservation, arrived on time and there were few guests, yet the service was extremely slow. There were major gaps between each serving and the meals for...our table didn’t arrive all at once. Our younger members of the family became very anxious. Why am I writing this so many months later? Because we all left Lindsay for the winter. Two moved away. Two of us return in the summer and have been travelling extensively. Hobarts is usually a nice place to take visitors. We will have to follow current reviews to see if there is any improvement or not.More

We went to Hobart's to celebrate our 34th wedding anniversary yesterday(Sat.). We were seated promptly and greeted by our server, Alisha. She was informative, attentive but not "hovering" as some at other places do. My wife had steak and shrimp. Both were delicious and the...steak was done to perfection! I had the Sat. special, Prime Rib, once again perfect and delicious! Because we were celebrating our special time, we were greeted with a complimentary dessert! It was unexpected and yummy. Our only criticism would be, the décor is starting to look "tired" but it was still nice. As well, our starter salads( Caesar and Orange/Almond) could have been cooler, they seemed more like room temp. Overall, we had a great night and would return for a great meal.More
