Like the place close to our hotel. Good service and food. Liked the special deserts. Will be back again if would stay in the same area.

Been to Quebec City a few times, and went for a weekend getaway in April. Were actually quite excited to try Le Hobbit based on reviews, and frankly came away feeling we would never return. It's not that it was bad, but it was decidedly unfriendly, and the food certainly didn't make up for it. We are anglophones, but speak... More

We were a group of 8 and were totally okay with being split into two tables (hungry bunch). The staff were great at putting us as close together as possible.. and eventually even just pushed the two groups into one (the waiter received quite the applause). We were there after lunch hour and were happy that they had breakfast until... More

I ordered a Salmon burger, and my friend ordered a tofu-spinach vegetarian burger. We both enjoyed our food. Food was good. I also like the jazz music played in the restaurant. It was a nice atmosphere. Waiters were attentive too.

The walk from the center of the upper city to the Hobbit will take you into one of Quebec's more interesting neighborhoods. This is a major shopping area filled with mostly independent local shops. Very charming and very interesting. The Hobbit is a well appointed medium sized restaurant with very good, simple food. It is casual and comfortable and we... More

Great food and service. The only thing that kept me from giving it a 5 was that the outdoor seating area was small and hard to move around in. Their rack of lamb served with mashed potatoes and marinated vegetables was awesome with a sweet sauce. The chocolate dessert may be the best dessert ever. This is a place where... More

Have only been here for breakfast, but had a very good meal. Eggs were poached perfectly, whites were fluffy and yolks were runny. Flavorful and smooth bernaise sauce, tender fried potatoes and fresh fruit on the side.

The first time we stopped here was a weeknight during the Christmas holidays. When we asked for a table, we were rather summarily told that they were full and would not be able to seat us no matter how long we waited. Not sure why, but I went ahead and made reservations for the following night. I'm glad we did,... More

First impression was friendly welcome, and a nice relaxed atmosphere.It was lunch and the tomatoe , red pepper soup was perfect for a cold winter day.... More
