This was the most consistently excellent meal we have had in years. Every dish on the 5 course menu was original and most were sensationally good. Not a dud dish among them. Service was very attentive. Can’t wait to return. Dropped one star for the acoustics

Consistently fabulous. It is a treat for us that we spend many weeks/months looking forward to. It is not inexpensive but it most certainly is worth every penny. The team who work so hard clearly create their dishes with passion and skill. All staff in front of house are knowledgeable and it is great to try some unusual pairing wines. It remains our most favourite special restaurant. Thank you team.

The food and service were excellent. We had the Adams menu and thoroughly enjoyed every course. We came for a joint 40th birthday celebration between my wife and I and the only small let down was that there were other people in the restaurant celebrating their birthdays who seemed to receive a little extra surprise at the end of the meal (won’t spoil it for anyone planning on dining at Frog) but we did not. Having said that, we did not expect anything extra and left feeling more than satisfied with our experience.

First impression was not amazing. It has the feel of a canteen, with a lot of staff hanging around.

We had a cocktail downstairs at first. Adams Apple was great.

We went back upstairs for the five course tasting menu, and as soon as food started arriving I changed my opinion completely. Interesting, complicated and delicious. First an Amuse Bouche then four courses, a pre pudding and then pudding. All very good.

We went late for a casual meal, and perhaps should have taken more time. Also quite expensive.

Definitely recommended for special occasion. Will be trying the main restaurant soon.

Great service, and Interesting, though not exceptional food…..which it needs to be at these prices…£90 per head for a three course lunch with no alcohol….off the scale for an informal bistro type restaurant

So I’m glad I went….but I won’t be rushing back. There’s better value to be had.

Fantastic food - tried the multi course tasting menu. Expensive but really delicious. Highly recommended. Staff very friendly and service very good. Ambience maybe not at the same level as the food - feels at these prices it should be a bit 'smarter'? Overall, definitely recommended - best fine dining meal out I've had in a long time.

Four of us came to celebrate our joint wedding anniversaries. We had been to Caxton Street and loved it, but had been told that the Frog was fantastic. We met our friends in the bar downstairs and were greeted with a glass of champagne to begin our celebrations by Kelvin who was charming. We had the five course tasting menu and the food was absolutely out of this world. In particular, the snacks which were beautiful and the Cod, smoked eel and kohlrabi were voted the outstanding courses. In fact, my husband said it was one of the best meals he had ever eaten. It was beautifully presented and served and the staff were the perfect combination of informal and friends, whilst remaining consummate professionals. We enjoyed the whole experience from beginning to end and would have no hesitation is recommending Frog to any of our friends. Thank you for making our wedding anniversary so perfect.

Only one complaint: Wine list focused too heavily on very expensive wines. I chose one of the cheaper options and it was fine, but I would like to have seen more reds on the lists for under £40

We had a spectacular anniversary dinner at The Frog last night. Everything was incredible from the pre dinner drinks in the cosy bar downstairs first to the 5 course tasting menu and also the service was absolutely top notch! The food is inventive and creative yet simple and fresh. I’m convinced that this restaurant will get a Michelin star soon so go here before they do and the prices go up

All staff were super efficient and welcoming while still being discreet and viewing the pass was a real highlight. Thoroughly recommended.

Tonight was the best meal I’ve had in London for a few years. The food, presentation and service were all truly wonderful and made for a properly ‘special’ evening (it was my wife’s birthday). Unlike many other of the Michelin started/first tier Central London restaurants I’ve experienced, you don’t come out feeling part of a production line that just wants to turn your table over as quickly as possible. Thank you.

Excellent meal to celebrate ours and friends wedding anniversaries. We had the 5 course tasting menu with the addition of the lobster (a bit overpriced for this extra course) but very tasty. The flavours of each dish were beautiful and the whole menu well balanced. Would definitely recommend.
