It was my third time at this restaurant, but somehow was a bit dissapointed this time...maybe food portions were smaller than before. Especially beef, two tiny pieces, and as we were sharing all the dishes, we laughed as we just about managed to taste the dish as it was so small! Around £15 too... so to have a proper meal you would have to order more than 5 dishes at least. Generally, the ambience is always nice and staff are lovely.
My whole experience there was amazing, the food was great and the ambient really pleasant!
The food here was delicious, mostly of very high quality. The seabass with curry sauce was the only dish not quite as high a standard as the rest.
The front of house and initial service staff were not particularly friendly. They seemed to make a judgement about us when we arrived, and may have overheard us saying this because after that point we were served by 2 different members of staff. It was our first time dining there and they were quite impatient that we were unsure of what to order, though we ended up spending £50 per head with service charge. The information about portion sizes could be much clearer, though we got there in the end.
The later service staff were very kind, and it was a shame we had had a fairly negative introduction to the restaurant from their colleagues. We will not be in a hurry to eat here again, as we could have spent the same amount having a much more pleasant experience in a friendlier environment. Much of what you pay for in a restaurant of this price range is the overall experience, not just the fancy food.
super meal, relaxed vibe, comfort food, but with a twist. all in all a great meal
Growing up I knew a posh kid who used to try to be a rude boy. He would flip flop between his posh and gangsta personas. This restaurant kinda reminds me of him - it doesn’t seem to know what it is. Is it super pretentious haute cuisine with a ludicrously expensive wine list? Or is it a hipster tapas tent with craft beer? It’s both I’m afraid. You’ll drink an £80 bottle of Malbec whilst 90s garage tunes blast your ears and fancy food blasts your tongue. If you’re into this mashup of personalities you’ll love it, otherwise you will find it a touch annoying with moments of brilliance.
Great innovative food, service is excellent, staff friendly, a great nights dining
I booked the tasting menu and matched wines and had the most fantastic meal with my wife on Valentines. The service was swift and perfect with explanation of each beautifully balanced dish and wines. The craft and effort that is delivered with each course is an artistic masterpiece that makes it sometimes painful to smash to pieces as you revel in each bite. The expert thought the process of dish, cutlery and food was truly stunning. You can't consider yourself a foodie until you have been to Frog.
Exceptional food and service. The order of our tasting menu went wrong meaning we missed out on some dishes. The staff couldn't have been more apologetic.
We got free champagne, an extra course and they started the tasting menu from the top so we could experience it how it's meant to be.
Great place, couldn't recommend it more!
Fantastic fine dining food without the stuffiness of a Michelin starred restaurant> The £50 tasting menu is very good value.
Such fantastic food, had the best meal ever here (vegetarian tasting menu and beer pairing). Service was incredible (super attentive but never too much).
Took my girlfriend to Frog E1 for her B'day.
We went with the tasting menu and weren't disappointed. Every single course looked and tasted incredible and the attention to detail and passion the chefs put into it is clear. We're still arguing about which course was our favourite.
The cheese doughnuts cannot be missed. Outstanding evening.
Great food, awesome service. Did the wine pairing, perfect matched wines to amazing food
Fantastic tasting menu in a relaxed atmosphere. We chose the 9 course tasting menu (£50, without drinks pairing), and were not disappointed. The food tastes great and is presented with style and accuracy. The staff is helpful and cordial. It is also exciting to be able to watch the chefs prepare and plate the dishes at the pass.
There were, however, a few things that could have been even better. The speed of service at the beginning (until we received the bread and chicken butter), was too fast. This improved as we went through the menu. We found a couple of the dishes to be slightly over salted - this is an easy way to make food more tasty, but when the food is of such standard it's definitely not necessary! I was also not convinced by the cheese doughnuts, surely tasty but a bit heavy and definitely not as refined as the rest of the menu. In addition, my wife asked to change the dishes on the menu that had crab as she cannot eat it. The staff was very helpful and suggested appropriate substitute dishes from the tapas menu, which was great, as we got to try a few more things. However, the size of these dishes was the same as in the tapas menu, and thus were out of proportion for the tasting menu, which made the whole menu a little too heavy. Finally, we found the music to be quite loud - it made it tricky to hear some of the chefs when they came to the table to present the dishes (but I love that they do this!).
Overall a very pleasant experience that could have been exceptional. Would definitely go back.
The food was beautifully presented, service and ambience great but I’ve knocked the stars right down as the tapas was TINY!! The menu advises 3/4 tapas per person. We ordered 6 small and 3 ‘large’ between two of us as we were both hungry. This should have read 6 incy-wincy-two-bite tapas, and 3 slightly-larger-maybe-four-bite tapas! We then had pudding (also small). Really disappointing as we had booked for a birthday, travelled a long way, not eaten in order to save ourselves for the deliciousness of the evening. And the food truly was delicious but two bites per plate?? Please. Portions so small it was a joke. And not cheap either but that would’ve been ok if we had actually left feeling vaguely full :(
Great restaurant. Food is really top drawer, some courses absolutely spectacular. Service was ok, beer pairing isn't value for money, but overall well worth a visit.
