Incognito Restaurant and Wine Bar is a tiny place tucked into John St. South, where you are treated with personal care and offered a delicious menu. We have not been disappointed with any dish we've tried. Options for vegetarians are limited, but what there is is very satisfying. We took our vegetarian daughter there for a birthday dinner and she... More

We had dinner at Incognito last Friday night. The food was excellent. I had the beef tenderloin and my partner had the Brohm Lake duck. The tenderloin was excellent although a little overcooked for rare. Vegetables were fresh and the fries were fresh cut and delicious. My partner loved the duck and roast potatoes. Prices are really good for the... More

My husband & I are from London and our friends are from Kitchener and we meet for a lovely dining experience at Incognito, Hamilton. Well worth the drive; the salmon was exquisite; the sauce was to die for. Everything was amazing and we'd all highly recommend this hidden gem.

The atmosphere is intimate,the service is great and the food is consistently fabulous. We have dined here on a number of occasions and have never been disappointed. Their "prix fixe" menu is a great value offering a good choice of appetizer, main course and dessert. We love the crab cakes and the beef tenderloin is always a great choice. The... More

This is a relatively small restaurant, but it offers a good variety on its menu and the food is very well prepared.

I recently had the pleasure of dining at Incognito for the first time. Delightfully prepared food and attentive but inobtrusive service. Full menu and prix fixe. Had crab cakes for starters with mayonnaise sauce. Beef medalions for entrée. So tender, and good mix of vegetables. Cheesecake for dessert was one of the best I have ever had. An experience definitely... More

We had a company lunch here with the set dinner menu (choice of 3 items for appetizer, entree and dessert). Who would have thought that we would find a jewel in this part of Hamilton? We loved it! The restaurant closed down so that they could look after us (a group of about 30 people). The service was excellent, and... More

Excellent food! Good service. Small, intimate setting. The wait staff didn't hover but were always available when needed.

Hadn't been for a while - popped in with my hubby and we enjoyed a variety of items. The crab cakes are always fantastic - not a lump of bready yuck...and the tangy sauce oh so wonderful. Butternut squash ravioli...stop the review. There is nothing better. Ever. My absolute favourite....you cannot improve upon this dish that you want to bathe... More

Came with a colleague for lunch. Was a perfectly quaint lunch spot. Good options on the menu (pasta, sandwiches, salad), and very affordable. I had the crab cakes with salad, and it was the right size for lunch. I would definitely come back.
