Michelin starred Frog by Adam Handling is a place to really submerge yourself in a theatrical show. You’re facing the kitchen, the chefs come to your table and you are able to really interact with every member of the team. Frog is luxury in an environment where you feel comfortable being whoever you are and where all elements in the restaurant are connected to offer a truly memorable experience.

The dishes are very emotional and they all mean something to Adam. Each and every one of the dishes has a story behind it, whether it’s a memory from Adam’s childhood or something that has inspired him or the team.

    I have eaten here many times, but last night was a disappointment. 9 pm reservation and $3200 bill (four very nice wines ordered for triple birthday celebration). The food was good (but not as good as in the past), but the service was terrible. We had a reservation at the Eve Bar before dinner (which is owned by The Frog) and were told many times that our table upstairs was ready well before our reservation time. We arrive at our table ten minutes early and from the moment we arrived the service staff made it clear they wanted to move things along. There were no other 9pm reservations, so they had to wait for us to leave and clearly they wanted that to happen as quickly as possible. (The exception to the poor service was Diego the Somm who was exceptional). The waiters didn't explain the dishes, eyes rolled when we asked to have the wine ordered before we placed dinner order, and the whole service was rushed. In the past two weeks, we have eaten at the following one and two star Michelin restaurants (Terre; Dede's; and Humble Chicken), The Frog is not nearly at that level anymore. Dining at this level restaurant should be an experience. This one was a bad experience. We did not feel welcomed. It was an experience we will likely not do again.

    Exquisite food, professional and knowledgable staff, and a delightful venue. I cannot recommend this restaurant highly enough. There are a lot of hard surfaces, so hearing the servers was occasionally difficult, but not impossible.

    Outstanding! We enjoyed the tasting menu and wine pairings and had an incredible experience from start to finish. The space is very intimate, simply elegant and the staff are all engaging and spectacular. Truly a memorable and delicious experience. Highly recommend.

    We booked Frog as a birthday treat for my husband. We had wanted to visit for a while. We were not disappointed at all the food was incredible and the staff were very welcoming, friendly and professional. We loved the fact you could see the chefs in the kitchen. The taster menu will definitely get your taste buds going. We did not go for the wine flight but was recommended a wonderful bottle of wine to go with our food. Will definitely be returning.

    Having visited both your restaurants in Cornwall a couple of weeks ago, we were looking forward to visiting The Frog. Sadly it wasn't nowhere as nice an experience. The atmosphere was poor especially given the location, myself and my partner agreed that some of your staff members just weren't right for the position. The main issue being we couldn't here the presenter explaining about each course. We also felt there wasn't as many courses as in The Ugly Butterfly.

    Our new favourite restaurant. The dishes showed personality, the staff were faultless, and appreciated a really well thought out non-alcoholic pairing which was so refreshing to see. Absolutely fantastic!

    Extremely overpriced! Experience not worth it. Firstly I should say that our waitress was outstanding. She was attentive, took the time to explain the dishes and any meaningful stories, and was engaged. While she was excellent, she along was not worth the price of admission. Frogs is an example of a restaurant taking extreme advantage of its Michelin star recognition (and yet another reason why I prefer theworldstop50 as a restaurant rating organization over the tire guys). £900 for a mediocre meal for two is outrageous. The various upcharge items were managed quick tackily as well. There are only two options for the main, one of which has a £40 upcharge. When you have a set menu and only one item that is optional, wagyu beef as an option should not be an upcharge on a £195 menu! Later we were offered a cheese course - which was apparently also an upcharge of £20 for one piece of cheese. In poor taste is that we were amongst the last remaining for dinner, sitting right in front of the open kitchen and the announcement was made with strong disdain “they want the cheese course!” I said to the waitress, if we had known this would upset the chefs, we just as well would not have ordered it - we are after all paying, it’s not like we are being gifted anything for free. The wine pairing is a joke. £150 for 6 pours of largely unremarkable wines. The sommelier that started was great at explanations and engaging; the gentleman that took over from her about half way through our meal not so much. There is not any value whatsoever in getting the wine pairings - if you decide to go here, either order a single bottle that you like which would be more enjoyable and more cost effective or go without wine. They also add a 15% gratuity charge to your bill. It’s described as optional, but it’s already presented on your bill when they bring the machine - so it doesn’t come across as optional at all. At the price point of the meal, 15% gratuity is excessive. Disappointed!
