Service was outstanding and our server was very helpful. My entree of rack of lamb and wild Boar was beyond. All just excellent and we’ll be back soon.

Well, overall this place is decent, really enjoyed the tuna appetizer and mushroom soup. I do think it's a bit over-rated though. What's the deal with the umbrella's? Is it French to have a British umbrella on the ceiling? Unfortunately I may have ordered the wrong thing, although one could argue that all things should taste good there. I ordered the rib eye, Medium, and was VERY let down. The steak was tough, not tender and was chewy. It was clearly cooked poorly, perhaps over cooked or just a low quality steak. It's quite unfortunate that the most expensive item on the menu was no good.

Froggy’s has become our go to for fine French dining that rivals the French cuisine available in downtown Chicago.

Made a reservation for a birthday. It was raining very heavy and they sat us in the front room, we could hear the rain pouring very loudly. We were pretty much the only people sitting in front. Most of the food was excellent, as usual, except for the my fish, which was slightly on the dry side. It was supposed to be served with some sauce- there was maybe a teaspoon on the plate. I was also slightly disappointed that they didn't even put a candle in our dessert for my husband's birthday.

Good French cooking. The dishes are creative and the service is professional. It is obvious that the pastry chef is a chocolate addict because the chocolate medley dessert was over the top.

What a wonderful experience at Froggy's last weekend. Loved it. We had a table in the bar area and it was so comfortable and relaxing. Service was top-notch, and the food was divine. My boss loved it too! Thank you!

This was exactly what we were looking for in order to have a very quiet lunch, celebrating an 88th birthday. Most guests were in the front room so the dining room was extremely quiet which made us very happy. The food was very tasty. The reason I'm giving Froggy's an overall 4 instead of 5 is because we weren't allowed to switch between getting an appetizer or a side salad (which seems unduly rigid), and because we were overcharged (which was corrected which I brought it to their attention).

An outstanding evening! From the moment the host (John) greeted us, to the last bite of our Chef's Selection dessert assortment...
If you've never been here - what in the world are you waiting for?

Highly recommended!

This was my first visit and we invited another couple with us. We all enjoyed our meals. I thought the lamb chops were excellent. My husband thought the filet he ordered was delicious. We are all definitely coming back. I highly recommend it.

My wife and I celebrated our anniversary at Froggy's. The food and service were excellent, and the quiet ambience was very good for conversation.
We both had the comprehensive dinner - salad, appetizer, main course with vegetables , and dessert. This is a terrific package for a special occasion, especially when accompanied by wine.

We have eaten at Froggy's many times, and will be back for sure.

We sat inside because of the temperature dropping that afternoon. The umbrellas covering the ceiling are really charming. And the food is great. The $19 before 6:00pm soup or salad and entree is an amazing deal.

Waiter, clearly didn’t know about wine and assumed we didn’t either, pushed a wine just to get us to pay more. Not a classy thing to do at a fine restaurant!

They missed my wife’s birthday recognition, but otherwise it was amazing! The special mushroom soup was fantastic, but the onion soup was just okay. My wife had the special lamb chop/lamb Wellington entree and she loved it. I had the game meat trio: venison, quail and rabbit. Wow to all three!!! Wines are numerous and most are only $35!! That’s a bargain! Service was excellent and the chef visited our table. It was terrific overall!

Service was very slow. Took about 20 minutes or so for anyone to take an order from us for drinks or food. The server made a few mistakes with the order as well and was unorganized as to how he took the order to begin with. Restaurant not flexible in allowing someone to get a Caesar's salad rather than house salad that came with entree unless they charge you for full salad (doesn't make a lot of sense).

Food was decent overall. Lamb was a little underwhelming given it was the house specialty. I had told restaurant in advance that it was my wife's bday but waiter didn't know and never mentioned anything until minutes after desserts were already at the table (he overheard us talking about it).

People would come by to ask us how the food was before we ever took a bite. I am new to the area and given the price of the meal, I expected much more.

Froggy's is our GO TO for celebrations, of all types. We love sitting in the bar area with a fireplace in winter or with the windows open during the Spring and Summer. Rodrique is the best waiter (and Cosmo maker) we've ever had.
