The Hobbit is one of those places where everybody has a space and everybody is welcome. Families, couples, friends, all seem to be able to have a good time. We had a great dinner with excellent food, and our quirky waiter made for great entertainment.

Amazing French Onion soup, elk steak and salmon tartar. The wine was recommended by their friendly staff and was well within budget and accompanied our meal perfectly. A great restaurant just a short walk outside the old city walls. Well worth it!

The quality of the food was a bit disappointing and the service was a little bit more spotty, but this is still a very good restaurant. Very French flavor...great onion soup and cheese platter. Overall I would say that a bit of attitude was present....More

I had the halibut with vegetables and my husband ordered risotto with buffalo cheeks. Both dishes were perfectly prepared and the flavors were amazing. Only downside to being there on Thanksgiving weekend is that we had to wait over 20 minutes for our drinks to...More
