Thoroughly enjoyed lunch on the shaded patio on a warm Minnesota day! Noted that dining indoors in this beautiful restaurant in a historic building with many rooms (different menu) would be pricey. I ordered the least expensive lunch option; the $10 "mini sandwich" of the day was a delicious chicken salad which included a side of fries, fruit, soup or... More

Great patio that makes you think you are not in a large urban area. Great appetizers, service can be spotty when busy. It is Minnesota so mosquitos can be a problem at sunset.

When you sit at Frost's patio, you might think you are in Europe. The food is great too. Reservations are required so you know it must be fabulous.

Gorgeous patio, but unfortunately that's all they have going for them. Bugs are bad as the sun goes down. I was disappointed in the food quality, not my first time here, and I don't ever remember thinking it was remarkable, nor rememberable. I had the cod cakes, I barely ate them, not good. I also ordered the bib lettuce salad,... More

My wife and I looked forward to a quiet romantic dinner at one of our long time favorite restaurants (We have been dining at WA Frost for more than 10 years). We arrived 5 minutes before our 7:00PM reservation, to be greeted by a rude woman maitre d', who went looking for a table, as though she didn't know where... More

The 19th Century historic building was cool.. and the neighbor building was SO nifty I wished I could buy it. Frost's patio is paved with cobblestones and has a SERIOUS abundance of beautiful plants,some trees. The back of the building is covered in vines. The Waiter in charge...remembered the beer I liked. The Staff were ALL quite nice and skilled.... More

I've seen several reviews about WA Frost slow service over the past few months. I must add my voice to this. However, the first issue for our group was that my reservation for 8 verified by a responding email showed up as only 6 when we arrived. Therefore, we had to be separated from the other 6. Our table was... More

Came for a birthday celebration for brunch. Waited 2 hours for our food. And when we were served the vanilla scented French toast was dry. It was not allowed time to soak up any egg. The hamburgers were ordered rare and came well done. Neither burger came with requested cheese. We were charged for the 'complimentary' birthday dessert. Over all... More

My friend and I had a pleasant brunch at this very popular restaurant. I signed up for the earliest seating at 10:30am which helped. It did get crowded later. Our food was delicious and the waiter excellent.
