A wonderful birthday dinner at Froggy’s. Excellent food and presentation. Great ambiance sitting in the dining room with all the open umbrellas on the ceiling. Felt very ‘Paris’.

A gem of a place. Have traveled widely throughout the world and can say Froggy's is world class. But, why the name "Froggy's" for a French restaurant?

Love this restaurant, but the quality of food has been steadily declining over the years. It feels overprices and some items precooked for the past 2 years. Also, for V day they had special set priced package with glass of Campaign. When we came in, server told us that the rule is your campaign comes only with desert. It forces you to order more drinks before you receive your included glass. It felt like cheap trick in pretty expensive cozy restaurant. I wouldn't mind paying and waiting a bit longer for freshly prepared entries. Froggies chef comes out to get an opinion, but I felt uncomfortable telling him my concerns/suggestions in the small room with other patrons foot away from me.
Please, return to authentic french cooking and give people options to try just appetizers or sweets at the restaurant, give small things for free. This will attract younger crowds.

Our waiter, John recommended an excellent wine choice. We both had specials and found the food excellent. John had been very responsive when I made the reservation, as I had asked for a special dessert for my wife's birthday. While that dessert wasn't available, I really appreciated his call to respond to my special request.

Had lunch recently and it was great. Everyone enjoyed their food and the selection for lunch was very good - could have a salad w/a protein or soup/salad/appetizer, etc. We weren't rushed and did stay quite a while talking.

Dined here for my birthday last night (first time here ever)!! It was EXCELLENT! So mad at myself for not coming here sooner!! My friend and I each had the sautéed goose foie gras and escargot for appetizers(both GREAT. Loved how the foie was in a bigger size compared to most French restaurants too!) For entree my friend had the lamb which he loved; I had the Chef’s Surprise Game Meat Special (wild boar, rabbit, and duck)—It was AWESOME! So flavorful, tender and fresh!! For dessert, we shared the Chef’s Surprise Assortment— there were 6 different desserts on 1 plate (I couldn’t remember what each of them was because my friend and I pretty much ate the whole thing at light speed—it was fantastic!) For wine during our dinner we had a bottle of Chateau Neuf du Pape—it was mind-blowingly out of this world!! We loved the ambience of the whole restaurant—very dark woodsy BUT full of colorful paintings and all sorts of colorful little open upside down umbrellas stuck to the ceiling—definitely the most awesomely happiest and cheeriest French restaurant I’ve ever been to! The service was spot-on as well—our server was very attentive, efficient and friendly! We would definitely come back here a LOT!!

The first time we used Froggy's for New Year's Eve - could not have been better! It was a very comfortable, classy evening with restaurant and server handling the special evening in a manner that never felt rushed, overlooked, etc. This truly is one of the best classy establishments on the north shore.

I returned to Froggy’s this past weekend after moving out of state. We made a point of returning to see how the Restaurant faired.
The experience was as wonderful possibly better than we remembered.
The menu is well thought out.
The appetizers were beautiful and varied. From perfect Fresh Oysters to my Chilled Artichoke with Ratatouille.
Entree presentations were beautiful and well executed. The flavor combinations were thoughtful and delicious.
As for the dessert , I ordered the Espresso Mocha Meringue.
It was one of the best Dacquoises I have ever had.
Happy to be reunited with an old friend.

Every time we eat at Froggy's, my husband and I wonder aloud why we don't do it more often! Took our friend on a Sat. evening (did have a reservation). From the valet to the cloakroom to the check in ... everyone could not have been nicer! But I save my biggest compliments for our server, Mika (Micha?) and the food. Our server was not only charming and helpful, but really knowledgeable about the food. The mushroom soup was outstanding as was the fish special ( Baramundi ). My friend ordered the sweetbreads
( a childhood favorite that she said was every bit as good as her mother's ). But the best part was dessert, when my husband jokingly asked if they had Rootbeer floats.... There was no rootbeer but the kitchen did a good job of copying one with coke!!!

Special birthday for my Husband. Disappointed they didn’t comp his dessert. We had a rather expensive dinner and think they missed the mark on this. Everything else was perfect.
