Had good birthday dinner last night at The Hobbit in Orange. The food was good but it was a bit overpriced for what you got. The service was excellent. The wine pairing was only so-so. It's an eating "experience" in that they have one seating and you all move in a group starting in the basement/wine cellar (it's in a house--great cellar) with free champagne and appetizers, then to the main dining room for a couple of courses, then take break and hang out in the resting rooms upstairs, then back down for the rest of the meal. I was underwhelmed by the lamb main course. Overall I'm glad we went but I don't think I'd go back.
