Yummy brunch

Trendy, while still being and old-school upscale dining option. Comfortable atmosphere and fabulous bloody Mary's when we visited. Can't wait to try the outside dining option.

The service, food and relaxing atmosphere at WA Frost are all reasons to try this great tradition. Our waiter was responsive and knowledgeable. The menu selection is diverse and inviting. The food was very good - not spectacular, but very good. My daughter called it "fancy comfort food." For instance, the maple sausage is excellent. Also, the old building has... More

I've never had their food but love this place. The basement is such a wonderful atmosphere and is so relaxing. It is a great environment to have some drinks and just relax.

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
