Hobnob Kitchen and Bar Ratings and Reviews
We never send back food, however, the fish and chips came with two very small pieces of dried out, over-cooked fish required us to do so. It was not edible. The new replacement was one bigger, better piece, but this time, only slightly overdone. The snapper was good and another one of our guests had a pasta and shrimp dish that was good. We all felt it was mediocre at best compared to many of the othr Naples highly rated restaurants. We could all name other restaurants with similar dishes that are much better.
Loved the atmosphere and the location.
I am SO glad this place was recommended to us while visiting Naples. Where we come from, there are a ton of good local "foodie"-type restaurants so our expectations are high, and HobNob totally met them. First, our waiter was awesome - he knew the menu backward and forward and was so enthused on the food it made me excited too. We started with the mussels. GET THE MUSSELS. They were maybe the best mussels I've ever had. I had the grouper and fries, which I was concerned I would be bored with but am so glad I got it. The fish was absolutely incredible. It actually tasted like fish because it's lightly fried - not the usually crazy battered, over-friend fish and chips. We got a bottle of wine that was reasonably priced and very good. To be honest, I was a little put off when walking in at the huge TVs in the bar area, but I'm glad we stayed! We'll be returning and I love that they have a kids menu so we can bring the kids next time. Great little place if you love good food!
My son and I went on a Friday night. There was live music and people salsa dancing. It was a ton of fun. Although slightly loud, we sat in the back and it was fine. The food, service and ambience was very nice and lively. The food was spectacular too. We'll definitely be back.
This was our first visit to Hob Nob and definitely not our last! We've been wanting to try it for a while, but never found the time for the drive (about 35-40 min). Since it's been raining non-stop and we were going stir crazy, we figured it was perfect timing to get out. Everything we had was absolutely delicious. The short ribs fall off the bone they are so tender and the side pairings with the entree's were perfect compliments. My husband got the Mahi and enjoy it very much as well. We had the carrot cake with homemade vanilla ice cream for dessert and it was nothing short of fabulous. And to top it all off our waiter was very friendly, knowledgable and on his A-game. If you are in the neighborhood, it's definitely worth a try!
We went here because our friends said it was their favorite restaurant in Olde Naples. We were very disappointed. I ordered the chicken and it was so dry that I could hardly swallowed it. My husband ordered the sea bass, he said it was good but the portion was very small and he left hungry. Maybe an off night for them. Server was great but manager walked around way too much staring at you, rather annoying.
Only reservation that night. Very attentive staff. If crowded would have been noisy. Had the Ahi tuna dish. Pricey for a mediocre dish. Ordered I Cosmopolitan for my cocktail. One of the worst I have had. Little flavor and strong.
Would most likely not return . Other restaurants on 5th I prefer
First off, the food was delicious. We sampled several bar bites, apps, and mains. All had a great presentation and all were great!
However, in order to enjoy your experience, you expect a decent level of service--whether it be from a bartender or the waitstaff. In our experience, both positions fell well short of our expectations.
After the bartender served us our drink, we were out of mind. Mind you, this wasn't a busy time--about 6:15--with several open bar stools all around. They were joking and laughing amongst themselves....when they weren't on their cell phones. After waiting over 15 minutes to place a food order, the bartender promptly disappeared again, never even noticing the two empty drink glasses in front of us. After receiving our food, and waiting another 5 minutes, a different bartender finally offered another drink.
I was hoping it was just a random set of circumstances and was hoping the dining room would provide a better experience. Unfortunately, that was not the case.
We were sat promptly at our reservation time--again, it was fairly early and the restaurant was perhaps a third full at this point. We waited 15 minutes for our waiter to stop by the table. Eventually, we were able to place an order for some apps and a bottle of wine. He did bring the wine, but he returned 10 minutes later to ask us again if we wanted to order any apps!
We eventually ordered our mains and waited...and waited...and waited. Both of the tables next to us arrived about 30 minutes after us. However, they received their mains about 10 minutes before we received ours.
During our dinner, the waiter removed an empty (tap) water bottle. Presumably, it was to replace it with a full bottle. However, he did not return with another water bottle until we had both finished our dinners.
I can continue providing specific details here, but it would be fruitless. I'm not expecting a Michelin 3-star experience here...just simple, basic service.
Hobnob has a comfortable feel as soon as you walk in! My wife and I have been multiple times and each have been a great experience. The waiters/waitresses are very friendly and super helpful! The seafood is incredibly delectable and they make their savory pasta in-house. The sweet little muffins they give pre-dinner are so amazing! The appetizers are unique but very very good, you definitely need to be open to try new things. One of ours favorite places to dine!
We have never had a bad dish here. Everything on the menu is great. Must try the Tuna (Tar Tar) nachos and the deviled eggs apps. Every seafood dish is of the finest quality and the short rib is top shelf. You will not be disappointed with any selection you choose!
