Met here for lunch with old high school friends on a recent Friday. The dining room was comfortably full. Since we hadn't seen each other in a year, we had a lot of catching up . Our food was excellent. Two of us enjoyed the white fish , one had the burger and said it was very good and cooked... More

My best friend & I have made it a tradition to have lunch at WA Front each year just before Christmas. First of all, the decorations are so amazing. The service is perfect & the food is even better. We look forward to it every year.

We visited recently for a family birthday celebration crossing 3 generations. It was a hit with everyone. We sat inside since the weather in MN has gotten a bit chilly already. Although, in warmer weather the patio is simply fabulous. We love Frosts for special events.

Sitting outside on the patio with my Husband for my Birthday Dinner, enjoying the weather and the ambience. This is always our go to restaurant in the summer, sometimes for lunch but most of the time for dinner.

This is a beautiful, scenic, old St. Paul restaurant. However, the last time I was there the backyard garden (which is picturesque) had mice running around. When I panicked and pointed it out to the waiter he raised an eyebrow and said "I know, it's gross"! Additionally, the last time I ate inside a mouse was running around. The staff... More

Even with a reservation we waited 20 minutes to be seated. You'll find the staff less than friendly. The main dining room is very loud and the tables are quite close to each other. I don't know how old the restaurant is but it's time for a remodel or a cleaning. Even the chairs are old and uncomfortable. The fish... More

Beautiful dining room with friendly staff. Squash soup and fried green tomatoes were great. But jerk chicken was dry, ribs were not even warm, beef was tough. Only cod cakes were enjoyed. BUT small dessert of flourless chocolate cake with ginger ice cream was wonderful. Pet peeve. Restaurants with online menus that don't reflect the actual menu. We had looked... More

Visited twice - once for drinks and once for dinner. Bar was ok if a little slow on service. Restaurant food was decent enough but service was quite shambolic and some of the staff seemed disinterested- especially when welcoming on arrival. Ourselves and other visitors were left to stand for an inordinate time unattended whilst staff chatted and walked past.didnt... More

Whether you're a local or just passing through the area, you must go to W.A. Frost. We highly recommend it - it's one of our absolute favorites! Do yourself a favor and order the soup, even in the summer time. We've never been disappointed no matter what the soup has been. The service is always spectacular - W.A. Frost does... More

The restaurant’s outdoor patio dining area is wonderful. The wine list was varied and reasonably priced. They also offer red and white wine flights. I had one of the red flights which featured some interesting and good wines. I ordered the pan roasted chicken with gouda grits. The chicken was well done and very salty. The grits were great and...
