Met friends for dinner at a "halfway" point for each of us. Have never been here before and thought it would be really nice to visit a restaurant that's been in this revitalized area for 40 years. Let me say right off the bat that our server was wonderful and efficient and we really enjoyed talking with her. I think... More

Wonderful menu, I wanted one of everything and, as my dinner companions all ordered different items, we got to see/sample several. I especially recommend the Korean bbq chicken wings and the grilled marinated beef skewers. One is on the appetizer menu, the other on "things to share" and were more than enough for dinner -- huge servings, making a very... More

The food is very good and they have an excellent wine list. But the real value proposition is the back patio bar or dinning area. It simply can't be beat! In winter months, I also really love sitting in the wine cellar underneath the bar. It's very charming and authentic.

It's fun to see how this restaurant has grown over the years. After going from a small sandwich shop to a full, sit down restaurant is amazing. And you can't beat the patio in the summer!

Gotta luv the outdoor patio at this restaurant. In addition, the food is wonderful. My wife and I try to visit Frosts a few times a year. Very eclectic menu which seems to be different every time we have a meal. Spend our anniversary with our oldest son and had a delightful experience. Our waiter was incredibly knowledgeable about the... More

I was part of a group of about 20 people. We were served in a room reserved for our group. I can't say enough about the lovely old building that houses this restaurant. I loved it. Unfortunately, they had just one waiter for our group of 20. The meal took 3 hours, from drinks, appetizers, main course, and dessert. We... More

Older place with wonderful atmosphere in a beautiful area and beautiful building. Visit the Cathedral of St. Paul while in that area.

We recently went for dinner to celebrate a birthday. We were a small group, but each have our own preferences with food and atmosphere. Everyone loved WA Frost. I enjoyed the panko crusted cod. The server was excellent. We sat inside and it was cozy and comfortable. Nice crowd.

I can't recommend this place strongly enough - this is the place to go for that special dinner. We had a gift card and decided to use it all, so we orded everything that looked interesting. Nothing we ordered disappointed! Perhaps the only negative (which wasn't awful) was the food came too fast!
