“LOVELY EL FRESCA GARDEN DINNING”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2013

In April a friend and I visited W.A. Frost for the first time in many years. We had such a wonderful dinning experience we decided we wanted to enjoy the beautiful outdoor garden dinning also.

We decided in August to make the trip back, once again we were very pleased with our food and the beautiful shaded garden. The cocktails were generous, and our food once again was beautifully presented not to say our mussels were some of the very best we have had.

W.A. Frost & Company is one of the top outdoor dinning experiences in the midwest.

“No better place for a relaxed, Summer lunch ..”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2013

So had a few friends in town, and looking for a fun place for lunch. W. A. Frost is known for it's nice dinners and mid to upper level dinner dining. Wow. What a great place for lunch. They have a burger to DIE for on the lunch menu, THE BEST FRENCH FRIES on the planet, (smoked or flavored or something ?? ... but they actually taste like a potato). Nice drink selection from the bar, no long wait to be seated, (reservation suggested if you want to eat outside and it's nice weather). 4 people ate WELL for only $60.00 !! A very pleasant surprise. Attentive staff, nice quiet adult environment to have a conversation, lots off nearby parking.

“Can't go wrong with the oario”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2013 via mobile

Ate here with a group of 7 friends on the patio. Gorgeous atmosPhere. Watermelon soup and oysters for starters were delicious. Corn relish risotto and red snapper were perfectly prepared. The kit Kat dessert was perfect blend of sweet and salty. The wine list has something for everyone- we had a terrific white burgundy and Pinot noir and they were half price bottles. Nice surprise. The prosecco by the glass was crisp and dry. Be prepared for the bill because it all comes with the appropriate price tag. I've never had a bad meal or experience here. The inside decor is perfect for a cold wintry Minnesota night. But in the summer you have to do the patio.

“Amazing Patio on a Warm Summer Evening”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2013

The outdoor patio atmosphere is top notch - charming and delightful. The service was good (a bit slow) but then we were in no rush. Overall I'd say portions were generally small but I enjoyed that too because I enjoyed sampling the menu. They have a great happy hour and even if you don't come for happy hour, the regular dinner prices are reasonable. Overall experience was OUTSTANDING and I can't wait to go back.
