A St Paul institution, but I had never been. I had high hopes and was excited after reading the history and the menu. But alas ... I won't be back. Three of us had a reservation, and two hours out, called to ask if we could add two more to our party. The answer was no. No? Hmm. When we... More

WA Frost has one of the best outside dining patios in St. Paul... hands down. The food is so-so and the staff is O.K. (not bad, not great).

WA Frost serves some very lovely food. I'm generally impressed with the quality of the food, which is approachable but also very tasty and well presented. It was also nice to find out they allow BYO wine with a corkage charge. I can't remember exactly what the corkage per bottle was. Perhaps $15 or $25 a bottle? You'll have to... More

Delicious lunch, the braised pork sandwich was wonderful, just the right amount of spice. You must try the squash soup with spicy peppitas...so good. Burger was perfectly cooked with a nice bit of char. Dining space is charming, take some time to enjoy the artwork. Our server made spot on recommendations, and gave us perfect friendly service. The beautiful setting... More

Depending on the day/ crowd, the service can be slow- go with a group, and you won't mind waiting for your order- be sure to call for a reservation- the patio is a must for the summer, and the extended fall we are experiencing- Food portions are on the small side- I have been inside, but not recently- in the...

We chose WA Frost for our wedding venue. Second time around we wanted it to be small, quaint, and memorable. We reserved a back room that was perfect for our small group. Our server was none less than a personal attendant, attending to details beyond food service. The food was outstanding! The venue exceeded our expectations!

We stay in a local B&B and this restaurant was a short walk away. The food and service were excellent. The restaurant was quiet so you could easily care on a conversation. The menu had a good selection of american cuisine.

Visiting the Twin Cities? This restaurant is a must. I was traveling alone and ordered a cup of soup, butternut squash I believe and two micro entrees; duck and white fish. Both were exquisite. Excellent wine list. I was there on a Monday night when many restaurants are dark. Not WA Frost. They also offered a tasting menu. If you... More
