I seriously can say that the service is exceptional and the food is superb. I tried grilled vegetable with mushroom and it was delectable. In addition, I bought steak fritte but it was average. I really liked my time here. I will likely return here.

I visit Hobbit Bistro when it opens and a kind staff welcomed us. I had a Grilled bagel and coffee. Food and service are both good.
