Nice setting, good food

Had a recent dinner with a group of 10. Food was good, the setting is very nice. Service was a bit slow but it is likely the server felt that with the large group we wanted to take our time.

We came not expecting much but a warm place to have a glass of wine, but ended up really enjoying our time at W.A. Frost (and staying for dinner). The food was well-prepared but nothing special. What we liked most was the considerate service and historic ambiance befitting the Summit Avenue neighborhood. Prices were reasonable and we never felt rushed.... More

I have had dinner here a couple of times and am never impressed. This last time I had sea bass with a bed of diced vegetables. The bass was cooked properly but rather bland. The vegetables were rather bitter. I also had a salad with bibb lettuce and blue cheese. It was substantial, but not that flavorful. Not even the... More

We had our wedding dinner in the fireside room 5 years ago, and went back for dinner on our anniversary. My wife is vegetarian, so finding a menu accommodating is sometimes difficult in MN. Fortunately, they have a Vegetarian option for their tasting menu, and that was perfect. A wonderful meal (as always) and there is simply no other restaurant... More

Great place to meet friends for a drink. Historic bar is deeply carved and brings up thoughts of how grand and historic this building is. Perfect for a stop in on the way to dinner Or a late night quite conversation.

Fantastic experience. Everything from the lower level lounge area, the service, and especially the food were fantastic! Will definitely go back next time in the cities. Prices were reasonable considering the quality and uniqueness of the food. It was a perfect evening of relaxation, food, and beverages!!

Wonderful food and the patio behind is gorgeous - a great romantic dinner location. The inside is like eating in an old, pretty house (which is what I think it is). The bar is really nice - long and dark wood.

There is nothing I do not like about this restaurant. I especially love it as the weather gets colder and the decorations by the fire make for a cozy and wonderful dining experience. The service is excellent and the food is so amazing. Even the most simple dish is always prepared perfectly.

Great food, had the sirloin, very tender and oh so good. Margarita's were perfect, however, the place has an old fashioned men's club feel, leather and dark, the atmosphere was just not inviting to a hip urban gal like myself.

Thank Tanya E
