Review of The Hoppy Gnome by Jessica Knight

My husband is active duty army and we are being relocated to Florida and we chose this place to have our last dinner with my family, all 11 of us! When we arrived they had messed up our reservation time and informed me that they were 100% full and that they would try to seat us soon. I was upset because the hostess had called me earlier that afternoon to confirm my reservation for 7pm not 8pm. However the owner bent over backwards to make us comfortable while we waited with 3 antsy children. He offered our first round of drinks on the house and made the kids 'fish tacos' , goldfish in tortillas, so cute! The waiter, Sterling, was amazing and handled our table with grace, because we are unorganized people by nature. The food was amazing, the service was great and you can tell the owner truly cares about his customers. I will definitely be back when we come to visit my family. Thank you so much for making our last dinner so wonderful!

Cool atmosphere with excellent service. The outdoor seating area only has six tables or so, but we are always able to grab one - it doesn't ever seem overly busy. Good selection of local craft beer. We have yet to try the tacos but will definitely do so next time - we have only heard positive things.

One of my favorites and one of the best in Fort Wayne, in my opinion. If you are looking for that big city feel, look no further. You are greeted with an aesthetically pleasing interior design. This is a beer lovers must, having such a wide variety. Lastly, the food. The consistent quality of food, setting the bar at such a high level, I and many of my friends can never get enough.

Best restaurant all round in Fort Wayne! My husband and I went on a Saturday and had the best potato soup we have EVER had!! The atmosphere was clean, comfortable and just the right decibals, for a fine dining experience. Every bite of food we ate felt like a warm hug that soothed every tastebud. We decided to continue our meal with tacos! How wonderful you can mix and match tacos. Just amazing! We had such a wonderful, delightful meal.

Staying in downtown Fort Wayne for work. Not much open within walking distance of the hotel on a Sunday at 7:30 but Hoppy Gnome is!! I wasn’t feeling up for any tacos (although they have a large assortment that sound delish.) I ended up getting the appetizer scallops. They were amazing. Perfectly seared and on a bed of their delicious hash! Wonderful assortment of beers also. I would return for sure.

This place is industrial cool and also homey. The beer on tap from the brewery is so good! If you'd like to rent a conference room, they have a couple really neat ones. Great food and even better service!

First time going there, place gets pretty packed but they have plenty of room to wait. Most of their menu items are spicy so if you don't like spicy food, don't go here! And if you like fruity drinks like me, don't go here. I tried their only fruity drink called Mike Tyson punch and I could really taste the alcohol. Clean place with great atmosphere and staff are very helpful and friendly.

Staff was incredibly friendly/welcoming, waiter took the time to give us recommendations on food and beers, and was totally spot on. My tacos were ~AMAZING~ even though they topped one of them with ingredients that usually don’t end up on that taco, it added an even more perfect dining experience. Get the duck confit taco & add the fried scallions from the brisket!!! 10/10, seriously. I’ll definitely be back.

Our friends invited us here tonight. Very trendy and modern restaurant. I was impressed by the aesthetics and the food was delicious. They are known for their tacos. You can order two or three tacos at a time. They are the smaller shells so it's nice to eat a variety of flavors. It was a little pricey but definitely worth it for good eats. We got in right away and the service was great. An awesome atmosphere to be in.

Great from scratch kitchen, excellent service, great craft beer selection including their own. Our sever was Mariah, probably the best server I've ever encountered (and I'm not a young person), but additionally, ever person we spoke to here was as kind and personable as could be. I definitely plan to go back, I hope this awesomeness continues!

Wide selection of tasty food and beverages. Went on a Sunday only to find out that they were doing brunch. They had a simple but excellent brunch menu, but I couldn't resist from ordering off the regular menu as I had heard great things about their tacos, which did not disappoint. The flavors were such a great combination and there were a few different choices to select from. For dessert we had the smores which by the way they make their own marshmallows!!

I only wish I lived closer so I could eat at this place more frequently. This is a must if you are in Fort Wayne.

My tacos were top-notch and we'll worth the $. Great beer selection and house beers. Service was friendly and prompt. Only negative observation is that beers are priced $1 higher than most establishments but this hasn't deterred me from returning. Overall a great place.

Absolutely LOVE The Hoppy Gnome! Took a relatively large group there for my birthday and the service was accommodating and lovely. Food has always been spectacular every visit. This is a regular place for us for special occasions

Excellent food and the flights of beer are great to sample which ones you like the most. Our waiter was great and had great suggestions on both food and drinks. The place is casual and fun for groups. There's a bar as well if you want to stop by for a quick appetizer and drink. It is a fun downtown spot to try. Definitely will go again!

Fun modern industrial decor and a very simple menu. Right in the middle of downtown with views of the courthouse and busy street. Parking wasn't an issue for being located where they were. Really enjoyed my tacos and would come back.

The atmosphere is upbeat and trendy. The location is central and nice to have an upscale brunch spot downtown. I only wish they'd explore seasonings and add some more flavor to the wonderfully prepared food that looks so pretty on the plate. If the wait is long, chips and salsa would be a pleasant complimentary starter.
