I recently ate at this restaurant in New Brunswick based on a recommendation from a colleague. Unfortunately, I was underwhelmed. I ate at the bar and the service was lousy (the bartender was making time w/ two women and had little opportunity to serve other patrons). While I liked the amibiance of the restaurant, the food did not rise to the quality of the decor. First, the bartender's pour of wine by the glass was skimpy, especially in light of the price. Second, the calamari appetizer was well prepared but the sauce it came w/ was sickly sweet. My real complaint, however, was with the main course. I had the ribeye w/ parmesan potatoes and sauteed spinach. For a steak that is known for flavor, this cut was bland and uninteresting. The potatoes were dry and, worst of all, the sauteed spinach was acrid and inedible.
While it might not sound like it, I RARELY find fault when dining out and have never submitted a restaurant review in my life. This meal disappointed on so many levels, however, I had to point it out. To boot, it was expensive.
Tip to the Frog & the Peach: Service and Quality are what maintain a reputation as well develop one in the first place.
