Went to Hobnob in our last night in Florida. It fits the "new" wave of restaurants in style and menu. Very expensive which is to be expected along 5th Ave. in Naples so we weren't surprised. Not busy on Tuesday in August. I ordered a mojito which was very well done, hubby had hobnob ale which he really liked. They had great arancini, jalepeno in the center. We didn't order a main course, but small plates, the shrimp and grits is not to be missed, best we've ever had, I wanted to lick the bowl. Had stuffed peppers. All very good. Dessert was a disappointed their special chocolate cake, had the density of a chocolate bar. The vanilla ice cream was great, but husband had salted caramel which was so salty as to be inedible. Overall a good experience. More tempted to go to bar and order drinks and small plates than a meal again.

Worst dinner ever! Celebrated a birthday tonight. Unfortunately, the service was one of the worst experiences of our lives. Asked if they had any special desserts for birthdays and they brought it out without asking. It also ended up on our bill. The manager was incompetent and didn't seem to care. Looks like this place is on the way down. Servers barely spoke English and the music was so loud we couldn't hear anything! We even asked if they could turn it down and they didn't. Several of us also got sick.

This is my second visit to this restaurant. I love the contemporary feel. Bob at the bar was hysterical with some of his jokes.Kim our server had recommendations from the grilled artichokes to the blueberry Mojito's. All were awesome. We ordered fillet mignon and ribeye steak. The sides of escarole and coconut rice very much complemented the entrée. The steaks were incredibly tender and flavorful. Love this trendy place.

We arrived right on time for our reservations and were seated immediately. Loved the second level area - sort of away from the real hub bub. It's a cool place with super decor. Service outstanding and food always has a different twist. Great wait staff and owners. Love the place

I enjoyed the scene with the live music. The food was okay. I ordered the fish and chips. I've had better but also had worse. It was on the pricey side though. The Hobnob chips were really good though! And I really enjoyed the bread pudding for dessert. I think I would go there again for a drink and appetizers but maybe not a full meal.

After reading reviews (far more positive than not), we decided to try Hobnob. It was an enjoyable evening. We were advised by others who had dined there it would be exceptionally loud. On our Thursday evening (albeit not season) the restaurant was only half filled and noise was not an issue. The drinks, appetizer, and entrees were all interesting and tasty. It was a bit pricey but in line with other restaurants as is the norm on 5th Avenue, Naples.

I love Hobnob, but on this visit, my sister ordered soda with biters and lime and got soda with rose's lime juice. I corrected it with the bartender.
I ordered a fancy drink with a basil leaf for garnish. It looked like the least likely leaf that you would use as garnish. The manager noticed that we were talking about it and retrieved 2 beautiful leaves and shook it up again. Delicious.

We had a gift card, which made our experience less disappointing because we didn't have to pay for it. Our server was just great, he could read us well and was very helpful when we had questions about the food. The food was good but if we had to pay full price for it, that's where we would be disappointed. I don't believe this restaurant prices their food fairly. It's too expensive for what you get especially compared to (a few) other restaurants on the same street. This is not a good place for locals to go. Just tourists. This opinion is all based on the pricing. And we aren't cheapskates by any means, we do know food, though.

This is one of our top Naples favorites. It's hip and the food is wonderful. For some reason, the hostess tried to seat us in an empty back room and we said, "No thanks, we'll sit in the bar." She obliged. Seemed a bit rude that she didn't ask where we'd prefer to sit. The popularity of the place may be going to the staff's heads. However, the chef is tops, the servers are knowledgeable, and we will go back.

Service at the bar and at the table were very much on the spot. The waiter knew the menu. He often Came in and checked on us but never interrupted our conversation. The food was outstanding in the contemporary atmosphere of the restaurant just makes you feel that you're in a very trendy place in Naples
Great 5th Ave Restaurant
Really excellent service, especially with the oversight of the manager (Jeremy), who seemed to remember everyone's name and stepped in when the waitstaff was busy. Food was great, menu was great, all around a great experience on 5th Avenue. Inside was energetic and there was a group of women that was so loud everyone was shouting to talk to each other. So we asked to be seated outside. If not for that, we would have preferred inside but had a lovely meal outside.

When we visit HobNob we generally create a multi-course meal, sharing one item at a time between the two of us. The service has always been impeccable, and the drink pairing recommendations have been spot on. It's one of our favorite go-tos when in Naples.
Way Too Expensive
Prices are ridiculous for the portions. I'm used to the high cost of dining well in Naples, but this just wasn't worth it. We had a great waiter and it's fun sitting outside on a gorgeous night, but we won't go back.
HOBNOB NEVER DISAPPOINTS!
You can always count on Hobnob for great food in a lively atmosphere. I beg you to try the sea bass--it's one of their amazing staples. We like the high-top tables the bar--the seats are not what you'd call "cushy," but there's more room to spread out than in the shoulder-to-shoulder dining room. And we couldn't have asked for a friendlier server than Domingo. Great place to choose for pre-theatre!
