This place is amazing! We went for a friend’s 30th birthday treat, we all had the tasting menu and everything on it was absolutely delicious! Incredible service too, I would highly recommend and will be back. ☺️

The restaurant has moved from its original location in Shoreditch to Hoxton Square - and the more established premises have lost some of the ambience. But the food remains very good and the service excellent. The cocktails are as innovative as the food menu although the former did not work quite so well on our last visit (tequila and tonic??!). The tasting menu was great though

The food tasted as good as it looked - impeccable! I felt the vibe was much more casual than the menu and the food itself but overall really enjoyed the evening. Highly recommend - especially the cheese donuts and mac n cheese!

Wow Wow Wow. Ordered most of the menu then started again. Enjoyed the whole experience. Staff great. The Frog is moving to a new venue with is a shame since the local area helped the ambience. Will find them at their new digs.

Food was excellent and service efficient. Liked the way that the chefs brought out the food and ran through the ingredients. The only sour note was the ungracious and unsmiling reaction (the chef with the streak in his hair) to being thanked, as we left. Glad The Frog is moving premises - the present venue doesn’t do justice to or reflect the menu.

Leisurely lunch with tasting menu was first rate.
It's annoying that I am forced to use 50 characters by the software, one doesn't need this discipline I am, after all, voluntarily spending time to give the review.

Our experience at Frog was enjoyable. We had friendly and attentive staff serving us an array of dishes. We had the tasting menu, which seemed to be the same for most of the other patrons dining whilst we were.

The food looked beautiful and tasted good. It did not wow us but there were good combinations of flavours which we did enjoy. The only gripe we had was my wife does not eat beef and the dish was substituted with a vegetarian option, it would have been better if replaced with a meat one.

On the whole, a good experience. Not a cheap night out, but thats what special occasions are about!

This was our second time here. The service on our first visit was amazing but definitely lacked the second time around. The waiter continuously questioned our order options and made us feel quite awkward.. If I hadn't been before and had an amazing wait staff experience, I would have left on Saturday night with a very different overall opinion of Frog. Nevertheless, the atmosphere is amazing and the food is incredible. Absolutely delicious. Recommend if you're a foodie. Warning: very small portions so only go for tasting not to feel stuffed.

We visited Saturday lunchtime for the tasting menu. 2 of us had the Vegetarian tasting menu. Service was impeccable. Every course was beautifully presented & explained.
Lovely atmosphere. Some of us had the beer matching & I had the wine matching. A thoroughly interesting & enjoyable experience.
Plenty of tap water provided. Not rushed, well looked after.
Recommend without hesitation.

A different eating experience. An outdoor covered with seating swings and fake grass /flier covered ceiling area leads to the restaurant. This is comfortable enough for a couple of hours but there are no soft surfaces. Industrial feel with open kitchen . We picked the tasting menu for £50 per head. This was tasty and different with the celeriac apple date dish being the most tasty, although the egg that was supposed to spill out over the dish had been overcooked . Delicious morsels.By the time the beef course arrived a couple of us regretted having eaten so much of the sourdough bread with delicious chicken butter! The service was excellent with a variety of waiters and kitchen staff appearing during the course of the evening to tell us about the dishes we were having . We very much enjoyed the wines and a good choice was available. The menu would need to change regularly to make one want to go back often and I don’t know that it does.

We’ve become regulars of this fabulous culinary experience. I love the food - all beautifully presented and served by the chefs themselves. Wonderful wine-pairing menu or if you prefer beer-pairing they’ll do that too. Adam Handling is truly a master chef and he’s so passionate and dedicated you usually spot him in there.

Initially, a little concerned because some of the reviews mentioned the service was poor but we didn't find this at all. The team were great, all smiles and very attentive. Great idea to have the chefs serve the food at your table. Food was exceptional especially the pollock and short rib - couldn't decide out of the two dishes which was the best but well done to everyone in the kitchen, the whole 8-course tasting menu was superb.

Really cool venue, service was excellent and food was really tasty , the chefs take the time to explain each dish to you, great for date night and spotted tables for group bookings. Wide range of beers, price wise very very reasonable for the quality of dishes! Will definitely be back! And the lemon meringue desert is a must!!!

An ambitious tasting menu immediately impressed us with the starters. Unfortunately, the following savoury courses were misses, starting from the chicken butter served with some stale bread and going all the way to the dry and chewy beef short rib. The only glaring exception was the pollock, cooked to perfection and well balanced. The famous beetroot pre-desert and deserts were excellent, though.

We liked the ambience and the vibe of the space, but the dining experience was slightly disappointing overall.

Great food, perfectly implemented.

But for one course my friend said his tasted not right. I dutifully wolfed it down but it did not taste the same as mine. Following this I felt sick for the next two days. Maybe this was made by a junior chef.

Otherwise than the above the food is exceptional.

Had a lovely welcome and given a table with a swing seat, which was fun. Tried the Tasting Menu with wine flight. Everything was delicious. All of the staff were informative but didn't go on and on... Our waiter was very attentive and friendly.

Only slight issue, sort out the door so people can get in.
