Beautiful setting

We were a large group and reserved a room. The room was absolutely lovely with plants, art, lots of natural light, and even big windows with a pleasing view. It's a great place for medium sized groups. We were 17 and it was perfect even to get up and move around. Very private. The service was... read more

Reasonable prices for quality, gourmet food; friendly service, knowledgeable staff, beautiful surroundings - love the historic setting. Really, they have the best patio in town bar none. Tom the bartender makes you feel so welcome - he is efficient, friendly, and fun - simply the best bartender in town!

Have been here twice this spring to sit out in the beautiful garden area. Had their mushroom and tomato-roasted red pepper soups and salads and the special pork mini-sandwich. My companion and I were very impressed with the light and flavorful dressings on our salads and the tender pulled pork. The bread served with our meals was fantastic. Our servers... More

We were celebrating a college graduation and this place was great. Awesome dining room, impressive historical décor. I thought we'd be disappointed we couldn't eat on the patio, but the dining room was perfect. The appetizers were fabulous. The main courses were unbelievable. I had the half chicken that was out of this world. Others had the pork chop that... More

Visited today with two friends. The experience is fantastic. Do order a cheese plate appetizer with a glass of wine ( or a flite of red). We ate inside as it was expected to rain but did tour the gardens and patio on the way out. They are beautiful ! So is the inside built in about 1880. Lots of... More

At Christmas, I received a gift card for W.A.Frost & Company from our sons.Nice! I saved it for a special occasion, my birthday. That was a good choice because the food ,ambiance, and service added up to birthday bliss. Seven family members celebrated with a bottle of Chenin Blanc from New Zealand to start. It may not have complimented all... More

My first culinary appointment ever to Saint Paul, Minnesota was marked by a deep sense of culture ( the old good American style, huge gorgeous trees outdoors, hanging lights, low light romantic atmosphere), Elegance ( both in staff manners and view of the place and the plates) and Quality ( in the ingredients , the taste and the presentation).

For a special night out my date and I were expecting a special experience. We were seated at a table in a noisy dining room and when we asked to be moved the hostess made some excuse about an available table for 2 needing to be reserved for a larger group. As we left we saw a couple had been... More

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.
