Great dinner with large group

Beautiful restaurant inside and out. We were with a large group and all the food was tasty and consistent. Servers were accommodating and timely. Pork chop and sauce were excellent. Others enjoyed sea trout. Pistachio chocolate cake to finish. A definite this up.

The patio here is awesome. The only problem we ran into is that we had reserved a table on the patio for happy hour, then we were told that the area that the reserved tables are in are only for dining, no HH. The happy hour itself isn't great. Beer and house wine, and a few small food items. Patio... More

Ate inside here for the first time with a large party for lunch. Menu was very good, not extensive but choices to cover every palate. The building is wonderful old brick factory, intriguing layout of small rooms connected together. Had a spring vegetable pasta that was light and fresh. Wine selection very good and more important, server knew the list... More

I arrived with a group of friends, lucky enough to grab a large table on the patio for happy hour. We also lucked out and got an umbrella as spotty showers came through a few times. My first reactions were yeay us! But as we settled in, I slowly grew disappointed by what Frost's patio has become. So you know,... More

My husband selected W.A. Frost & Co. to celebrate his 65th birthday with our son and me. You simply cannot beat their patio for a beautiful outdoor dining experience, including Lake Como, Tuscany, Hawaii, etc. AND, having not been there for a couple of years, we thought that the food has come up a notch in both interest and quality....

We've been coming to this restaurant for decades for special occasions. It's been a while, but we visited last night. We were very disappointed in both the food and service. My husband had the red pepper soup, which was fine, and the duck breast, which was OK. I had the smoked chicken salad, which was rather salty - the best... More

I truly adore everything about W A Frost but the food and service. The decor inside is lovely 19th century and the garden in the back is the best in St Paul. But the food borders on inedible. And, the service is distracted - you almost have the feeling that the waitstaff forgets you are there. My earnest hope is... More

Please note: I used to love this place, but we both drove home feeling that this is the last time we will go here. You will need to decide what part of the dining experience is most important. If it is a nice evening and you want to sit outdoors in a relaxing atmosphere, by all means enjoy! I will... More

I've been dining at WA Frost for over a decade and it's one of my favorite spots for a guaranteed good experience. I love the old ambiance with beautiful paintings, tin ceilings, antique sofas, a fireplace and lovely outdoor spacious patio. Service here is excellent and food and wine pairings are the same. Best cheese platter in the Mpls/St. Paul... More

The outdoor patio is stunning. We stopped by for lunch as we were in St. Paul for just the day. Dining al-fresco was quite the treat. The food was excellent - I had the Sweet Pea Flan, Spring vegetable linguine and the Creme Brulee for lunch. The service was fantastic. After lunch, we walked up to the Cathedral which is... More
