Special occasion

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!

The atmosphere of the patio is great and so is the service but the food is not worth the cost. Also, be aware of the terrible parking which makes it hard when you are meeting people and driving by yourself. The traffic cops will get you so make sure you know all of the parking rules, especially the unmarked sidewalks.... More

We have close friends in St. Paul that we love to visit when we are in town. We had invited them out for our anniversary dinner, and after extensive research and discussion we settled on W.A. Frost & Company. It couldn't have been a better choice! Whereas when we made the reservation they weren't able to confirm a patio table,... More

My husband and I love to go to W.A.Frost on summer nights and sit outdoor. Sometimes we sit in the bar area and order one of their generous sharing dishes, or have a full dinner at one of the restaurant tables. The garden is beautiful and the lights at night are truly relaxing. Good, attentive service and fresh, creative recipes.

My husband and I wanted to celebrate our anniversary and against our better judgement decided to go to W.A.Frost. This was the fourth visit we've made here. The first time was great. We sat outside in their great backyard and the food was great. The second time, we were put in a corner and forgotten for 1 1/2 hours. We... More

One of the most beautiful restaurant anywhere, classy and elegant with incredible ambience. The large outdoor dining area is like sitting in a beautiful garden (not of course in winter. Service is top notch as is the great menu. A very rare classic that should not be missed.

We reserved a table outside to meet with friends for a farewell meal. The ambiance was delightful and weather too. The place was packed with St. Paul's cultural elite and socialites of notable standing. One would naturally expect this at a place like W.A. Frost & Company. The first thing to note is that when you order from the menu,... More

I just love this restaurant. The decor is very unique. Check out the "cigar room" look of the basement, especially in the winter, and have a hot toddy. The outdoor garden is great in the summer, and the other rooms are fabulous. You can reserve a bigger room for special events. Love the paintings, furniture, etc. The food is also... More
