Hobbit Experience


Due to distancing guidelines and California restrictions our new outdoor dining area has limited seating. Join us in 'The Shire' until September 20.

$92.00 per person (tax, gratuity, wine and other beverages additional).  The dinner experience will take 4 hours.  Dress code will be enforced.  Our dress code is an elegant casual; jackets recommended for men; ties are optional.   A collared dress shirt that buttons down with dress slacks is required.  Please no denim, no shorts, no polos, no flip flops or tennis shoes.  

The Hobbit has been known as a unique dining experience since 1972. We offer a prix-fixe menu, chosen by the chef, Wednesday through Sunday, by reservation only. **Please not that our evening may run differently as we will abide by California's guidelines.

Main Dining Room


ACT I Begins in the wine cellar**
All our guests are invited into our wine cellar to begin the evening. You are handed the evening’s menu and a flute of Hobbit Champagne. Hot and cold hors d’oeuvres are placed throughout the cellar for you to enjoy while selecting your wine for dinner. 

**Please note our evening may run differently due to California's Guidelines following Covid-19.  At this time we are unable to have everyone gather in the wine cellar.  Champagne and Hors d'oeuvres will be plated and served at your table.

Executive chef/owner Mike Philippi, his wife Debra, or Sommelier Amy Cody will be available in the cellar to help select wines -- a fun task with over 1000 labels from which to choose.

ACT II Our guests are invited upstairs to their own table
Act II includes a Seafood course, followed by a fowl or light meat and then a salad course. You are then invited to enjoy “intermission” – take a walk or relax on the patio.

ACT III Return to the table
Ten to fifteen minutes later you are invited to return to your reset table for Act III. A flavorful sorbet is next as a palate-cleanser. The main entrée is served complete with accompanying vegetables. Dessert arrives next,  available with an after dinner list of coffee drinks, liqueurs and fine cognacs.

Wednesday through Sunday we begin at 7:00 p.m.  Special event dinner times may vary. The Hobbit lounge with full bar is open one hour prior to each dining time. Our food is referred to as “Contemporary Continental”, a reference to its encompassing many world cuisines.
