The service was absolutely impeccable and the servers went out of their way to be attentive and friendly. We had our 9 month baby with us and they made a huge effort to engage him and find somewhere for us to change him (there are no baby changing facilities). The food was just beautiful, we had the tasting menu and came out very full and content! There was lots of variety and we would certainly go back again.

This is not our first time at Adam’s ‘Frog’ - Kelvin and the team add such a buzz to the evening.
This is honestly one of the only restaurants where I remember every piece of food I have eaten - thoroughly delicious!
I also recommend Adam’s English sparkling to start - so refreshing and a perfect start to our meal.
Think I’ll make this a monthly event once this lockdown craic is done with! Thank you Adam and team,

Ian

We choose to have the Lunch tasting menu with A small selection of wines Selected be kelvin which were excellent and complimented the dishes. We paced our meal over 3 relaxed hours which was perfect.

A welcome return to Frog for a birthday celebration. The food wine and service are all outstanding the only minor criticism I would include is that there should be longer pauses between courses to savour the tasting menu but that is a minor negative and I would recommend the restaurant as one of the best places to eat in London just now.

Choose the tasting menu with the wine paring and it takes away the agony of choosing and negotiating with your household partner. The courses are well placed, just the right size and the agnolotti are .... well just incredible. Masks are worn by all staff and by clients when moving around and your temperature is taken at the door. You are well looked after and the whole meal is relaxing and informative. There is an offer on wine especially the wine we ate with the meal. We also took away our breakfast. Do go - it is definitely worth making the effort - thanks to all the Frog staff for a great evening - and we are not easily impressed.

Alas anti-Covid precautions have taken much of the joy out of high end dining and Frog has not been immune to this devastation to their dining room layout and ambience. Despite this the food was perfect (dare I say sublime?) I highly recommend the "snacks" and was surprised that our waiter did not guide us towards them. Overall, service was to a good standard but this was marred by our food being served to the wrong table and then re-served to us. Certainly not something that reduced the risk of infection.

Given the numbers of staff that were both visible and passing through I can appreciate the high cost of operating such a restaurant. However, comparing with similar establishments I feel that lunch for two at £311 was over-priced by 25%.

Overall, and no reflection on Frog I will be refraining from high level dining until the fun, energy and sense of theatre returns.

In such tough circumstances you have to admire the quality of everything from the service to Calvin the exceptional sommelier. We chatted to the chefs and were admittedly "excited" to try everything and get the full experience. A fun place that really hits all the right notes. The perfect balance of great food, wine and service in a relaxed and welcoming environment. Probably the best meal I have had all year.

We had an amazing meal at The Frog.
The food was outstanding, beautifully presented and cooked to perfection.
The chicken butter and sourdough was my personal highlight but all the other dishes were flawless as well - we even got to try one of their new desserts (which was amazing!).
Service was absolutely impeccable, friendly, attentive with great suggestions from the sommelier - going to The Frog for the service alone is warranted in my view.
Yes, it is not cheap, but as a treat it is well worth it! We'll be back.

For me this restaurant just didn't pull it off. We should probably have gone for the tasting menu rather than a la carte. We had a table by the window which was draughty. The starters (cheese donuts, a beef / kimchi wrap) were odd; the mains (chicken and grouse respectively) were cooked sous vide and lacked texture. There were several between course treats that were good and the service and sommelier was good too, but overall it didn't make it into my list of places to go back to.

Outstanding. Right at the top of UK restaurants.
Food is sensational with lots of delicious interesting extras. Service is impeccable.
The only area for some further attention is the wine list, where some extra more recognisable wines from US and Southern Hemisphere would provide additional choice in the mid-price range.

What a treat! everything was delicious and beautifully presented. Almost faultless dining experience, we didn't like our table, but someone has to be next to the door :) As it turned out, it is always rightly busy in there, so as the evening warmed up we were glad of the occasional breeze.

food, service, atmosphere was graet.
tunes from 80's and 90's played - so fit with my age group.
Did the wine pairing too, liked the whites, less so the reds/rose...but wine is always a punt.
Went to Eve bar - cocktails were uber nice too

We had the most incredible time at Frog! Everything was outstanding.. the food was faultless! We were seated at the counter and got to watch Adam Handling himself in action where he was very social and chatted with us too. We had his tasting menu with matching wine which was excellent! All the staff were amazing and we just had the most special time! It’s the best tasting menu we’ve had in a very long time! I can’t thank Adam and his team enough for such a magical evening!
