The Hobbit offers a 7 course prix-fixe menu Wed-Sun with one seating per evening. Cost per person is $88 (plus tax, tip & beverage). Dress Code will be enforced. Our food is "Contemporary Continental" a reference to its encompassing many world cuisines. We begin the evening in our wine cellar where you are handed a flute of Hobbit Champagne. Hors d'oeuvres are placed throughout the cellar, sommelier Amy Cody & wait staff are there to help you select wines for dinner with over 1000 labels to choose from!Guests are then invited upstairs - you will be served a shellfish or fish first course then a fowl or light meat, followed by a salad course. After you enjoy "intermission" (visit the kitchen to speak with the chefs, take a walk, and relax on the patios)then guests return to their refreshed table for a flavorful sorbet palate-cleanser. The main entrée is served complete with accompanying vegetables. Dessert arrives next, along with a list of after dinner drinks and liqueurs.

A wonderful dining experience! Probably the best prepared and presented meal I’ve ever had. Inviting, comfortable, and absolutely unique. Highly recommended for special occasions. I live in mid-town Los Angeles, and it was well worth the drive.

Have heard about The Hobbit for many years came with friends with high expectations. Service was outstanding but food just ok. Not worth the cost but a great 5 hour dining experience with good friends.

Came for my anniversary dinner and I was not disappointed. The staff was welcoming, the atmosphere was perfect, and the food was delicious. I mentioned my cinnamon allergy on my reservation, which was accommodated and acknowledged as soon as I checked in. The hors d’oeuvres in the wine cellar were wonderful and plentiful-definitely enough to fill most people up. Each course thereafter did not disappoint. I will definitely be back when they change the menu!

Excellent for all the reasons you would choose a restaurant. Our family all had a great experience and the staff and chef treated us as part of their family.
