I liked the menu at Froggy's and I was especially pleased that they offer sweetbreads. Overall, our dining experience was good, but the service and other elements lack finesse. Actually, the service was downright rough at times. We waited in the front for quite some time before being seated, even though there were very few diners and wait staff saw us. Finally, it was the chef who came out and seated us.
The waitstaff was generally brusque, though helpful when we asked questions about particular dishes or wines. Their delivery of plates, glasses and cutlery was careless to the point of being amusing.
For appetizers, we ordered the Dariole of Butternut Squash and Salmon
with Asparagus, Oak Leaves and Beet Vinaigrette and the Escargot Casserole Broiled Snails and Braised in a Creamy Garlic Sauce, both $9.50. I would have liked to order the Foie Gras, but my dining companion doesn't like it and we wanted to be able to share. The Butternut Squash and Salmon appetizer was definitely the more exciting and interesting of the two, but they were both well executed.
For entrees we ordered the Sautéed Sweetbreads with Bordelaise Sauce($27) and the Chicken à la Niçoise ($29). The sweetbreads were well prepared and nicely presented. The chicken was somewhat dry, but came in a very flavorful sauce. Both entrees came with a very delicious and refreshing salad of fresh greens.
I like Froggy's and I would like to go back. I would love to see two improvements:
1. a more gracious and well trained waitstaff
2. an update of the decor, especially the artwork and the cheap-looking 1980s era plates that do nothing for the presentation of the food.
