We recommend starting with a glass of wine, a bowl of French Onion Soup or escargot appetizer, and then move on to our seasonal seafood mains, fresh pastas or our classic steak and frits. Froggy’s diverse menu is geared to satisfy seafood aficionados, vegetarians and all omnivores alike. Always fresh, always French and always a fantastic dining experience.
Located in Highwood, nestled in between Highland Park and Lake Forest, come dine with us to see why Froggy’s is known as North Shore’s hidden gem.
Excellent service. The chef even came to ask us how our meal was. Highly recommend.
It was the first time for us and we liked it a lot. Food was delicious, gorgeous presentation and the service was excellent.
Definitely not our favorite. The food was very mediocre and there are way too many better restaurants in Highwood to try this place again.
Froggy's provides the perfect setting for a business lunch, social gathering, special occasion, date night or any of many other things. Setting quite apart, here is what you can expect: an amazing menu, stunning daily specials, first-rate service, beautiful presentations, a personal visit from the brilliant chef-owner (from Brittany in northern France) and moderate prices that are extremely reasonable for the high quality of everything that comes your way.
Great French food, and without a long trip to Paris.
Awesome , great food and service
We were seated promptly. The server approached our table immediately. After inquiring about our drink order, he described the night specials. He allowed us enough time to study the menu and make our selections.
Good and prompt service. Delicious food. Our party was very pleased with the experience and we all had a wonderful evening.
Terrible service could not get seated
Froggy's is the most reliable restaurant in our area. I always know the food will be outstanding and the service exceptional. I have been dining there for many years and have never been disappointed. The menu reflects my favorites and makes it hard to choose but I am always pleased with what is served. Celebrating a special day is a must visit to Froggy's.
This was our first trip to Froggy's and we were very impressed. Our appetizer, soups, main entrée and desserts were all excellent. We'll be back!
The service was outstanding. The wine recommendation was excellent. Food was wonderful.
Awesome food and service. Patty.. bartender TERRIFIC
Inviting, playful decor, attentive and helpful staff, interesting and tasty dishes with generous portions. Atmosphere works equally for celebration dinner or a intimate dinner for two. Will definitely go back.
Waiters were curt and monosyllabic. Food mediocre, dry duck, tough steak. Empty restaurant, no advice about menu or wine. Wam bam. In out. Get out. Never returning. PS. On reservation indicated birthday dinner, but no recognition of that request.
It was both my daughter's and my birthdays, the waiters were friendly and kind. brought us a cake and champagne. The food was delicious. The only thing there were not a lot of people, I guess because it was a Monday night.
the food preparation and quality is excellent. Authentic french. every dinner includes a small salad
Service was poor. I asked for appetizer: Mussels. Waiter didn’t realize it until another guest received his appetizer. Everyone at the table heard me order. My wife ordered Pasta Primavera, it came with the pasta and seafood, but no sauce as described in the menu. Very dry taste!!
Froggy's has always been consistently good quality and service. While not convenient to our home, it is worth the drive and good to meet north shore friends .
Very nice place for lunch with friends. The special of the day squash soup was not as good as usual - I will definitely stay with the French onion soup which is outstanding. The crab cake was a bit too spicy for me, though others at the table rated it very good. We were all disappointed with the service during this visit. Our waiter seemed more interested in talking with friends at the bar instead of answering our questions. This was unusual, because the service at Froggy's is usually outstanding and friendly. We will definitely go back, so do still like it.
Always great food and a wonderful experience! Love the beautiful umbrella ceiling.
Great North Shore restaurant near Ravinia. Prompt service fresh ingredients and beautiful presentation
Our second visit, this time several years after the first. We were very pleased with the food, lamb and pheasant, pork chop.
Service was not focus on my party.
Froggy's is a cozy little French restaurant where one can get an excellent meal without breaking the bank. All our dishes were cooked and seasoned to perfection. The ingredients were fresh. There are ample choices for both seafood and meat eaters.
Our server, Micah, was outstanding in all spheres: efficient, knowledgeable, engaging and professional.
The service was great, the waiter had the entire front section of the bar and he covered it well. Loved the open window seating. It's a good thing I had a late lunch, the portions were small for the price. The scallops looked liked they were cut in half. But they were tasty.
Food was delicious and a great value! Very generous portions. My favorite restaurant in Highwood!
Froggy's is a gem on the North Shore of Chicago. It has been around for decades and has not lost it's touch. Their food, service and ambiance are outstanding. Highwood is a hustling, bustling restaurant scene but one you're in Froggy's, you are transformed into the French countryside. They also have complimentary valet parking.
Heard great reviews of the place, but the actual experience was very disappointing. We all had Chef's special but the salad was soggy, portions were small and none of the sea food felt fresh at all. Everything was all very uninspiring. On top of that , the wait staff were friendly but very amatuerish
We went to Froggy's to celebrate out 43rd anniversary. The food and service were excellent. The menu was creative and somewhat different from other similar restaurants we have eaten at in the last couple of years. We will definitely return in the near future.
The superbly presented plates were equaled by the quiet, tastefully decorated atmosphere making an evening catch-up with friends truly relaxing and memorable. The food itself was both delicious and delightful—both savory and sweet. Froggy’s is definitely at the top of the special list.
Was good dinner but had big trouble accomodating my wife's allergies. Communication between kitchen and wait staff could be better. If the weather is good, better outside
We’ve been going to Froggy’s for 25 years. Hasn’t lost its charm. Great foo & service.
Fantastic food, delightful atmosphere, great service, and an easy elegance make this place wonderful! One of our all-time favorites!
We had excellent service and all of our food was absolutely delicious! We’ll be back soon.
Fantastic place & the food was amazing! 🐸🐸
Froggy's is reliable and one of the few quiet restaurants in the area. The menu varies very little from the time the restaurant opened.
We used to frequent Froggy's until about 2010, and then started going again in the last two years. Our last two visits have disappointed and we may not return. Dining with a large group once and as a couple the second time, the experience was the same -- variable food quality and courteous but indifferent (to the point of getting things wrong) service. Wines by the glass are nearly undrinkable and expensive for what they are. (Some of the $10 pours are from bottles that cost <$10 retail.) The full wine list has more possibilities. On both recent visits the waiters were totally uninformed about the wines and mixed up our food orders. The kitchen is capable of turning out excellent food, especially the daily specials, but staples like rack of lamb, pasta with shrimp, and duck did not meet even our modest expectations.
It used to be that Froggy's offered amazing value -- very good French food at a good price. Now it is just French food at a good price. As my son commented after one recent meal: Meh.
One of our regular favorites!
We occasionally get lured back to Froggy's by theiradvertised great value (doesn't show on menu) early supper deal. The choices are limited. Both my husband and my soups were very good. However the wine and the entrees were not. The server never asked about quality. My requested rare salmon was overcooked flacky drowned in soggy vegetables. My husband's chicken cordon bleu was as hard as a rock, it was so overcooked.
