We've had meals at W.A. Frost several times over the last two years and generally they have been good. The atmosphere is unique because it is such an old building. We went to celebrate my husband's birthday this time. When we got our white bottle of wine my husband did not taste it only smelled it and said okay. Then... More

You cannot beat the beautifully decorated W.A. Frost restaurant in St. Paul for a nice and relaxing meal. No noise, discrete service and an attractive selection of dinner or lunch dishes. At dinner time, you can also just go for a sandwich, a cheese plate or some other smaller size 'micro dinner'.

We hosted an Xmas party at WA frost for 12 persons. We were placed in a semiprivate room that had a pass through to a back room. The host was accommodating as we brought spirits and desserts for a later Xmas lights limousine ride and they stored them in the back cooler for us until after the meal. We had... More

From the moment we walked in everything was terrible. We brought a group of 16 for a Christmas party. Here is a little bit about our 4 hour meal...So the first thing the waiter does is get drink orders for 5 of us then leaves - 25 minutes later he's back with those drinks and gets a few more -...

The atmosphere is wonderful here, summer and winter. Everything is comfy and inviting. Drinks and appetizers can make a meal when shared with several friends. Everything is served with flare and wonderfully seasoned. It is a wonderful location along Grand Ave with boutique shopping nearby and within a few blocks.

We celebrate summer birthdays and fall anniversary dinners on the outdoor patio at Frost. Just really a perfect setting to relax and have a wonderful and romantic evening!

One's expectations are not usually too high for a group dinner; however the food quality, taste and service combined for a wonderful dining experience.

When our son and daughter-in-law fly into Minneapolis / Saint Paul Int'l airport their first request is to stop at the W.A. Frost in Saint Paul where we grab an appetizer and an adult beverage. The bar area is very casual ($$) and the dining area ($$$) is a bit more formal. Cuisine is good--tasty and rather eclectic. In the... More

We were seated fifteen minutes late due to overbooking. We ate simply, two entrees and coffee afterward. I had pheasant and my husband had ocean trout. We both thought that the plates were meat heavy and vegetable light. My husband had about three fingerlings and two Brussels sprouts. The skin on my pheasant was perfect and crispy but very salty....

A great place to celebrate something special. Summer evenings are especially lovely on their patio under trees adorned with tiny lights. The food is superb.
