    Tonight's dinner was really beyond my expectations. The service was impeccable, but also warm and friendly without the trappings of stuffiness you might expect to find at a high end restaurant. The atmosphere was lively and jovial, the view of the kitchens was a real source of this. You could see a lot of the hard work and effort it took to create the food in front of you. The quality of the food, when you consider it through the mission aim of sustainability and minimal waste production, is almost unbelievable. The team at Frog are producing top quality dishes with food products that normally find themselves going to waste. Many restaurants and businesses are taking serious and important steps to improve their sustainability, but they could learn a lot from a kitchen dedicated enough to elevate the usage of vegetable peel and lobster brains into fine dining.

    We had an absolutely wonderful time at Frog. The food was sublime and service could not be faulted. We sat at the counter which was really interesting, enabling us to chat with the head chef and sous chef. A different experience from sitting at a table but superb all the same. It is clearly not cheap but you definitely get what you pay for!

    Outstanding food wine and service and very enjoyable pre dinner drinks downstairs. Everything was amazing and the appetisers alone were a meal in themselves!The wagyu beef with truffle was melt in the mouth (but with a whopping £40 extra charge).They produced a birthday card and candle with no prior warning - a lovely touch. A wonderful experience and would definitely recommend for a special occasion

    An incredible experience!! Food is world class, immaculately done, and the service is excellent, it’s friendly without the stuffiness you’d expect from a Michelin starred restaurant. All the staff are helpful and we never felt pressured to order more drinks. Well done to the whole team at the Frog!

    We were celebrating my husbonds 60 birthday and it was absolutely amazing. The food, the wine, the service - WAUW. However, if we have to point out something. Our table was situated near the entry (big door) and it was cold when the door opened. Mostly in the beginning of the evening. It was a rather cold evening.

    Wow, that was a great foodie experience. Thank you Chef (and team). We had an amazing experience at Frog. It is a set-menu only, it isn't cheap but it is absolutely worth it if you enjoy food and eating out. What impressed me the most is the oustanding ability of balancing ingredients and flavours in each dish. Typically, when there are more than 3 key ingredients in a plate, I get ready for potential disappointment. But at Frog, each time I was amazed how you could taste everything, yet discern what the main ingredient was. The only plate were maybe that balance just marginally out of sync was the quail, where the green herbs sauce was just a tad overpowering. I also liked that that they aim to use everything of their ingredients, including "leftovers". The price of the menu is on the high end but it is worth, because of the quality of the ingredients. There is also a lot of food coming to your table, in good portions (not those celebral fancy micro-portions you get elsewhere). Location: it doesn't scream fancy restaurant but it is nice. Maybe I would preferred the tables to be spaced away a bit more from each others. Service: everyone was nice and polite. It seems they do care of wine lovers, by the number of sommeliers. Only two "remarks": one young waitress explained a couple of dishes like those speedy-readers of the lenghtly compliance statements at the end of advertisements on TV. Slow down, give me emotions, make me salivate about the dish. It isn't just food, it is an experience which involves a lot of senses. The other was another (lovely) waiter that kept filling my water glass almost to the top (it gets warm and as it was sparkling, it will deflate in the glass) or removed the amouse-bouche multiple plates as soon as we would finish one. I know this is a silly personal preference but, again, slow down, let me enjoy the food in the moment. Again, thank you chef (and team)

    We had been wanting to eat at Frog for a while and we weren't disappointed. The fish course is possibly the best I have ever eaten and the "Snacks" were stellar. The wine pairings were also not far off perfect. The only very minor criticisms would be that neither of us particularly enjoyed the caviar course and felt the chocolate pudding was overly rich and a little unimaginative – although to be fair we aren't the biggest chocolate fans. Also, the toilets were not up to the standard of cleanliness I would expect from an establishment of this stature. But all-in-all it was a wonderful evening! Thank you Adam and a big shout-out to your charming team.

    We were there for a treat, and boy did we get one. By a country mile this was the most amazing dining experience of our lives - faultless in every respect. Topped off by having perhaps the best seats in the house - right up by the pass where we could see everything going on. Adam himself served us at least three of our dishes, and talked us through everything in detail. Everyone who served us was thoroughly charming, and the food was beyond sensational.

    This is a first class place to eat in central London. It is a dining experience, you are taken on a journey by hugely knowledgeable staff who sweep in and out with dexterity, never lingering too long but just long enough to share their knowledge and then off again. It is a well honed team of professionals, with everyone knowing their part and working as a team. The overall experience is exceptional. It is a special occasion restaurant and by some way my favorite place to eat in London. Bravo !

    Little point trying to push a no waste agenda when you have 20 courses to face - it’s inevitable people will not consume the entirety of the meal leading to copious food waste.

    Our second visit in as many years revealed a new menu, a reworked kitchen space (which remains fully open and viewable to diners), and increased interaction with Adam and chefs as they regularly engaged with diners as food is brought out. The wine pairing highlighted lesser known regions and varietals to great effect. Plan to spend some time to best savor the experience. The evening will fly by.

    Our first time to Frog and will definitely be back, every minute of our experience was amazing. From walking through the door the welcome was warm from that moment on. Every single item placed in front of us was outstanding, every single detail added to make it perfect visually and with the taste. Nothing was too much for any member of staff. Well done Adam, we loved Ugly Butterfly and now love Frog

    Outstanding food and creations. Unfortunately we couldn’t finish the food despite the efforts but it’s cause we have a smaller appetite. The food is really really good and the all the waitresses are so kind and amazing. Really professional wine specialist in the house as well. It was quite a close booking but they still had a written card , it help made my night special memorable. And cheers to the waitress that help me took a few beautiful pictures in the staircase! Will definitely come again when there’s chance.

    It was my fiance birthday & had advised Frog in advance. We had a lovely welcome & at our chefs table offered complimentary sparkling wine. The menu & every course of food was explained with enthusiasm & passion. All the courses of food were of the highest standard including the wine & port chosen & explained by the sommelier. Adam & all the staff were very attentive, helpful & friendly. Up to & including my request for a signed cookbook.Another excellent experience.

    3rd visit to Frog. Just gets better each visit. Staff are so natural and welcoming. Our daughter has a severe tree nut and peanut allergy and the restaurant adapted the menu for our table of six. We are used to going to the very best restaurants and this is the ONLY restaurant that hasn’t made us feel like we were giving them lots of additional work, which I’m sure we did. Thanks to the team at Frog. We will return without a doubt.

    Chef Adam was in the house and made it a point to serve one of the courses to each table. What a treat! The ambience was friendly and welcoming and the food was magnificent. For a fine dining restaurant they took care of everyone’s dietary needs, paying special attention to allergies. The waiting staff were informative, considerate and helpful. I would definitely return.
