    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 !

    The tasting menu was delicious and the snacks were outstanding. Service was impeccable. There was a choice of main course and dessert. The desserts comprised a white chocolate surprise and the second a salted caramel. Neither of us like white chocolate so we chose the salted caramel, however this was more a chocolate dessert and only the ice cream was salted caramel. We took the basic £150 wine pairing and the wines selected went well with the food. However, for the wine accompaniment with dessert, I preferred another glass of Pinot noir from New Zealand (which I had been served with the quail on the previous course) instead of a glass of 2010 Sauternes. The female sommelier appeared not to be impressed with my choice and another waiter served me the red wine. I was also charged for the glass of Pinot noir which I felt was excessive given that I had not taken the 2010 Sauternes. It was a pity the evening was spoiled by this attitude as we were in London for a birthday celebration weekend.

    Wow, just wow - the food was amazing! I loved everything about it, very chilled vibes, lovely atmosphere, amazing food, we couldn't have wanted more. Honestly one of the best restaurants we've ever eaten in. It does come with a hefty price tag, but totally worth it - especially for special occasions.

    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

    Last week we had the pleasure of enjoying the dinner experience at Frog. The welcome was warm. the service attentive, friendly and professional, each dish was excellent, creatively presented and described perfectly by each team member as was each wine on the wine flight. We were so comfortable in this special restaurant and Nicoleta was a stand out and managed our transfer to Eve Bar to continue the birthday celebrations. Cocktails, coffee, sweets were enjoyed with the same high level of service and the presentation of a lit edible candle was an amazing surprise. It was delicious. Thanks Team 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 truly amazing culinary experience. The food at the Ugly Butterfly is amazing and this is even better! Adam was cooking himself so we really did have a treat! The entire experience would be hard to beat!

    Amazing food and wonderful stories about each item on the menu. The chef is clearly passionate about sustainability and using each part of the phenomenal items on his menu. A “must do” in London.
