Our lunch time visit was ruined by a group of around 7 men. They were generally in good spirits, but the noise levels were very loud in such a small restaurant. A little bit of swearing was heard too.

We went for a special Sunday lunch, and it was everything we hoped it would be, and more. This is fine dining cuisine, served in a wonderfully friendly and relaxed way. The food tastes as beautiful as it looks, and it's a lovely touch for the chef who prepared it to serve it to you.

We will be back!

I have already recommended Frog by Adam Handling to several friends. The food was fabulous from start to finish. It was great to see the chefs at work and coming out into the restaurant to present their food was a great touch. The chicken skin butter that accompanied the bread was divine , the crockery and cutlery was very interesting and my handbag had it's own table ! All the staff were polite and the service was very good. Good help with our wine choice. The only negative , we were given , in our opinion the worst table in the restaurant but after politely asking for a better one we were moved to a great table with a view of the kitchen. We will definitely return to Frog as the food and experience is one of the best we have had in quite a while. Thank you very much.

We were disappointed as we had been recommended by friends who had enjoyed a pre-theatre menu. As the purpose of our visit was to attend a show, we were told upon arrival this was no longer offered and we ‘should be able to fit in 3 courses’ in the time available. We felt the overall cost of the meal was overpriced for the size of the portions and felt the whole experience was rushed.

An excellent experience from start to finish. The food is imaginative, delicious and exciting to eat, all presented beautifully. Excellent service throughout from all and even stylish rest rooms with quirky Adam and Eve notices rather than the usual Men and Women. Highly recommended and we WILL definitely return x

Great restaurant with lovely food but the wine was over-priced compared to other high-end establishments and the extra £20 per person for lobster in Wagyu fat wasn’t worth the money.
We still had a great evening and the staff were awesome.

Incredible food, wine and service. We had the 5 course tasting menu which was delicious. I am a vegetarian and my friends are not, this didn’t matter they adapted the menus for us. The mushroom truffle was delicious.

Birthday lunch for two. We opted for the 5 course taster menu plus a shared Lobster dish, and an accompanying flight of wines. The meal also came with Nibbles and a palate cleanser. Oh, and a final "birthday cake". The food was everything we expected - delicious, innovative, brilliantly presented. Service was attentive, but not in the least fussy or overbearing. Good to be able to watch the kitchen brigade at work and also a nice touch for some of the chefs to serve the courses they had prepared to diners. Fabulous food, contemporary setting, great service. Everything we hoped for.

Frog by Adam Handling is a real winner. Centrally located in Covent Garden, the muted decor, the comfortable seats, the many unmentioned amuse bouche and in between course delights, the well organized open view kitchen, the friendly, helpful and attentive service all say this operation means business. The real star is the food, served and presented by the the chefs. Inventive, technical without being too show offy, it is precise and offers new experiences to the fine dining palate. The price is more than fair. The five course menu offers exceptional value. It is customary in a review to highlight dishes: Frog's are all excellent. My wife and I look forward to returning on our next trip to London.

Took my boyfriend here for his birthday dinner and had a lovely experience! We both had the taster menu and a couple cocktails which were all very tasty and thoughtfully crafted. But the service is what topped off the whole experience for us, everyone was so attentive, professional and welcoming - I let the restaurant know it was a birthday booking so there were a few nice touches which we really appreciated. We sat by the bar and the seats are super comfy! Perfect for chef-watching.

Would recommend for special occasions/dates especially.

From the boyfriend: “Extremely pleasant service, service throughout provided a very personal touch (birthday card, birthday candle) fantastic experience”

Thank you very much Frog staff,
Anna and Paul

The most perfect food we have ever eaten.
We chose the 'Adam' Menu with the Lobster supplement and have never tasted better food.
The service, the layout and the smooth running can not be competed with.

Genuinely can't wait to go back, the quality of food, presentation and attention to detail was phenomenal.

Can not recommend enough.

An incredible and memorable meal. We had the tasting menu and couldn’t have eaten another mouthful. Each course was amazing with incredible combinations of flavours and beautiful presentation. The service is outstanding. Nothing is too much trouble. The sommelier was extremely knowledgable and guided us through wine choices that matched each course perfectly. We are regulars here now and I cannot recommend it highly enough

We went to Frog to celebrate my friends big birthday. The staff were excellent from the moment we arrived and there was even a signed card from Adam waiting at the table. We chose to have the 5 course tasting menu and wine flight.

Having been to other restaurants considered world class and being disappointed I am now slightly sceptical to for a tasting menu. I need not have been. Every course was exciting, well considered and delicious. Some tasting menus become a bit samey, this proved anything but. Each course was delivered by the chef who made it and explained. The wines were equally delicious with each matching the course superbly.

I would highly recommend Frog to anyone and would definitely go back. Thank you for making our afternoon so special.

We visited on a Sunday night and were pleased to see the restaurant nearly full. The open kitchen was busy but without unnecessary drama. The service was friendly and efficient and the food was outstanding - one of our best restaurant experiences in London in recent times. This place must be destined for a Michelin star very soon - and bearing in mind some of the places which already have one, it is overdue!

Absolutely out of this world. Every piece of food was incredible! You could taste everything described in the menu. Every detail was beautifully designed and presented. Would definitely recommend this restaurant and look to go to Hoxton restaurant in the future. The staff were super nice and the chefs were friendly and professional!

This was all in all an amazing experience, food, ambience, service all second to none!
My only critic is that wen the staff changed over around 4pm we had to get someones attention for more wine, up till then we were kept topped up at all times.
It was great to see a team of staff that took such pride in their work.
