Main Dining Room


ACT I Champagne and Hors d'oeuvres and a visit to our Wine Cellar
To begin the evening, you may request a private tour of the wine cellar.   You are handed the evening’s menu to guide you through your selections.  Back at your private table our Hors d'oeuvres are individually plated and served for your enjoyment, accompanied by our Hobbit Champagne!

Executive chef/owner Mike Philippi, his wife Debra,  General Manager/Sommelier Matt McKinney  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.

**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.

ACT II Continues the prix fixe dinner at your private table.
Act II  Begins with a Seafood course, followed by a fowl or light meat.    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. At this time, cocktail service is at your table.   Our food is referred to as “Contemporary Continental”, a reference to its encompassing many world cuisines.
