This place has a huge nice outdoor patio in the summer. A nice wine list. Dinner was great, and the appetizers were good. Be careful where you park. Make sure you don't have anything visble in your car. Our car was vandalized during our time there. My gym bag was stolen and my friend's briefcase was taken. We parked in... More

Our waiter was great - attentive and tried to keep things moving. The kitchen was backed up but the food was Luke warm when we got it. The food itself was 4 out of 5. Did not have the Prix Fix menu so this might have been better.

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... 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
