Best Bar Service Ever

My wife and I went to Frost for a light meal and drinks on the bar side. We are so glad that we sat at the bar as we received the best service ever! We shared Korean chicken wings and each had a sandwich (Burger and Fried Oyster Po Boy). For over two hours we sat and enjoyed the outstanding... read more

We always like to go to WA Frost, but have found it less enjoyable over the years, as the chairs are terribly uncomfortable. Now, we are more apt to go to other restaurants where we can dine in comfort AND have good food.

We spent a very cozy hour having drinks and conversation in the lower level grotto prior to going elsewhere for dinner. There are a number of conversation areas where a small group (2 - 6) can sit in comfortable chairs with drinks and appetizers, without having to strain to hear or speak. The server was very helpful in selecting house... More

We have been here as a couple, with friends and a larger group. All were great experiences. The food selection is large and varied (variety), nice cocktails and wine list. We LOVE the outdoor seating. It's large, yet many lush plants and mature trees grace the historic outdoor area. Worth going to just to get a seat outside. You won't... More

WA Frost is really a class act. And while everyone knows how amazing their patio is -- the first time I was there I thought to myself "I would LOVE to get married out here!" -- but I have to say their food is even more amazing. I love that there's always some new chef-inspired, seasonal dish to try, it... More

Arguably the best patio in the twin cities! The atmosphere inside is warm and inviting. The food is great but a bit high priced. It's a great occasion place. I like to go to the bar for a quick bite and a wine flight. They change things up pretty regularly and their selection is awesome. If you are in the... More

Step into this turn of the century/early 1900s space and you feel as if any moment you’ll see one or more of the characters from Downton Abbey. Think very high tin ceilings, wide woodwork framing each door and window, numerous huge (and real) landscape paintings with soft lighting on them, tiny lamps on each table, and a large wood-burning fireplace....

3 of us had a very enjoyable meal! We started with mussels, which were great! Entrees were the Scottish trout, steak and pasta...a nice variety to share tastes. The cost was a little high, but the service was excellent. It is a wonderful old establishment, and I plan on coming back when the outdoor patio is open.

As a chef myself I was looking forward to a exceptional brunch experience. Upon ordering the recommended braised pork hash by the waiter I was anticipating a delicious meal. Deep fried frozen breakfast potato cubes, 2oz of dry pork, an almost non discernible amount of pickled onions later I was very disappointed. Our other menu choice was the French toast... More
