We ate with friends here. The food was very good. Served in a wonderful atmosphere. Our service was good overall but there was one instance where she could have checked the drink levels without a special request through another server. The parking lot is small for the number of seats and the neighborhood is overrun with cars so parking can... More

Unfortunately we had a large crowd and we had a room to ourselves. The building is fantastic. Food was very good although didn't have access to the full menu. Had the ribeye which was very good. Outside there's a huge bar area that really looks comfortable and was very energetic. I will go there again sometime and try the full... More

You can't miss at W.A. Frost. From the iconic, beautiful, historic building to the delicious food and always right-on cocktails. I take out-of-town guests here just to tour the restaurant. And their patio always makes the top of the patio dining lists. It isn't cheap, but you will not regret it. If you eat in the bar, you can order... More

Met friends for lunch. Ate outside under an umbrella table. Six people and received separate bills. Lots of choices for appetizers, sandwiches, soups and salads. Excellent service and good food. Very enjoyable time due to nice environment.

Went here for my wife's birthday. The service was so incredibly slow, I am starting to wonder if they do this to sell more drinks and run up the bill. It took over THREE HOURS for dinner there. We did the tasting menu which will always take longer, but 3 hours is absolutely ridiculous. Tasting menu was 1 tiny deep... More

Took my mother-in-law to WA Frost to enjoy what I think of as one of the best outdoor settings in the Twin Cities. Our food was great and the atmosphere was lovely on this muggy, summer night. Our waitress in the bar area, however, seemed annoyed that we came to visit. She was short with us all night, disappeared for... More

Hubs and I went here for a Sunday lunch. We were looking for a patio and this place has a great one! I have been here so many times and have not reviewed. I had a lemon drop martini which was made quite well. We had the BLT salad and braised pork sandwich. We shared which means 2/3 for him.... More

Go early so you can enjoy the incredible ambiance of the most pleasant environment in the the entire metro. It's simply wonderful, excellent beverages, excellent staff, tasty plentiful apps. Nothing like it on a warm summer afternoon or evening.

This is not a cheap place to eat but it is one of the best restaurants in town that is timeless and still relevant. I have not had a bad meal here, rather, the food is quite good and well presented and service is excellent. The building itself is worth the visit so take a look around - get lost... More

The patio is lovely. You can make reservations to sit at a table, or take your chances with the bar area (large patio chairs and low tables). The full menu is available in the bar area, but I found the service to be slow/inattentive. The food was OK. I had the Chef's burger. While the general taste was pretty good,... More
