    I can't recommend highly enough. Everything was fabulous. We could have left extremely satisfied after the bread and chicken butter! It wasn't cheap but we really went for it to celebrate a birthday. It's nice to see that Adam has introduced a less expensive lunch menu, which means we can go again!

    Lovely service as soon as we arrived and introduced to our server for the evening - but was then served by 5 others throughout the meal. Would have been nice to have the same server throughout. Food was bursting with flavour but sometimes you couldn’t taste the beautiful base ingredients (eg couldn’t taste the crab in the tart or the beef tartare in the snacks, or the caviar on the waffle as the meat / caviar was overpowered by other flavours in those dishes). The Bread and chicken liver parfait was excellent - best dish on the menu. BBQ Scallop had a lovely flavour but slightly undercooked in the middle - just translucent and slightly slimy in texture rather than the meaty texture it should be. Wagyu was lovely in the main but over salted. Lamb chop in the main was well cooked but the fat in the lamb short rib could have been rendered down more. Had one of each of the desserts (rhubarb and custard / chocolate and caramel) but the rhubarb custard dessert was overpowered by pepper and ginger, the rhubarb juice was nice and sharp but could have done with more fresh rhubarb on the plate. Both desserts had too much gelatin so felt bouncy rather than creamy in parts. But there was a lot of food and certainly felt so full we had to skip the cheese course. Had one tasting menu with the wine pairing and one with the non alcoholic pairing. Found the non alcohol pairing drinks all merged into one flavour - cold fruit tea with sugar. Suggest they play with less sweet drinks for some courses using botanical tonics or similar otherwise everything ends up tasting the same. Also had our first bottle of water spilled by the sommelier (accidents happen, no damage done) but then were charged for both bottles which was surprising. Also lovely use of cheese throughout the menu but did overpower the palate and leak into other flavours which wasn’t as pleasant. Overall we had a good time but room for improvement. P.s Love the art work and the attention to detail on the ambience.

    Everything was really nice except for the soup which looked very fancy but tasted horrible💀 it was like a mixture of green apple and celery with peas on top, only took one sip and had to drink full cup of water to refresh my taste bud a bit

    The staff were friendly although service was a little slow. We waited 40 minutes from being seated to receiving our menus The food was presented beautifully fully, with each course described and explained. Personally, I preferred the previous menu format with Al a carte or tasting menu to the current, rather limited, 6 or so courses for one price. It’s the first time I have visited since the interior refurb and thought the new look was very welcoming and contemptuous. Overall, a thoroughly enjoyable evening and lovely celebration for our son’s birthday.

    Simply outstanding. Fabulous pre—dinner cocktails at Eve bar. Absolutely delicious food, beautifully presented, perfect wine pairing and attentive friendly staff. I had a counter seat and was able to watch the team in action. Chef looked after me and came over for a chat and answered my questions. Simply an amazing experience and I thoroughly enjoyed every moment. Thank you all So very much

    Delighted to have finally visited Frog and it did not disappoint. We opted for the lunch tasting menu with wine pairing. All of the dishes were delicious, wines were great and we felt it was definitely up there with some of the best 2 and 3 Michelin star restaurants in London for creativity and skill. Very impressive. All of the staff were great, knowledgeable and professional but not stuffy. Very grateful for the kitchen being able to manage my multiple dietary issues. Would highly recommend.

    Fantastic menu, attentive and friendly service. Relaxed athmosphere, excellent wine recommendations. We have dined at Frog's several times, the testing menu changes with the season and always offers some new creations. Highly recommended for a special occasion or just for a taste of the best quality of creative cuisine made of ingredients from across the best farms of the country.

    Food and drinks were excellent. Service was super attentive. Restaurant has lovely ambiance, with everything is beautifully considered. There are moments in similar establishments when one wants to nod off after a while with the procession of small plates and stories about each dish. There was minimal faffing and just the right amount of story telling. Would definitely go back.

    The service and presentation was outstanding but I think the price was ambitious. It was great for a special occasion and The food was delicious but I wouldn’t count bread as a course. I didn’t find it particularly romantic and It had a very relaxed and casual atmosphere for a Michelin restaurant.

    The food and extra touches for the occasion we were celebrating were all exceptional. All the staff are extremely talented and knowledgeable I would recommend Frog to anyone and the commitment to sustainable practices like zero waste are really impressive. The only reason I rate 3 for value is that for 2 people to enjoy the menu as it is designed will exceed £1000

    Excellent restaurant à base de produits locaux intelligemment interprétés. Les plats sont de grande qualité et présentés avec beaucoup d’originalité. Seuls les desserts sont assez décevants et pas à la hauteur du reste du repas. Service de qualité et sympathique. Prix du « tasting menu » plus l’accord mets-vins élevé mais la qualité le justifie en grande partie

    This is a shockingly bad meal at an unreasonable price. Have previously enjoyed Ugly Duckling, which has a wonderful setting and attentive service. In contrast Frog looks naff, very much like Six by Nico, and serves similarly ill conceived dishes at 10 times the price. Service was off, wine was dreadful, and we couldn’t wait to leave.

    What an incredible experience. The staff are always so attentive , helpful and knowledgable. The meal was out of this world - so many flavours are so cleverly combined. Adam’s passion of using everything and reducing waste is so cleverly demonstrated in the creative and imaginative courses. There are many touches that make this a magical experience which I can highly recommend - it should definitely feature on everyone’s bucket list !
