Great food and service we will be back again
Third or fourth time traveling to Waynesville from Raleigh suburbs and eating at Frogs Leap. A really great restaurant every time. Food is simply outstanding, what else is there to say? Despite the pandemic, they have managed to do the things necessary for safety, and still provide a great experience.
When in the Waynesville/Asheville area, Frog's Leap Public House is one of the first places we choose to visit. Food is outstanding and service is top-notch. We visit Waynesville almost every year for the relaxation and the environment; however, the biggest highlights for us are the excellent restaurants in Waynesville. FLPH is at the top of the list. Good people, great food and a friendly place to enjoy the perfect meal.
Everything from the time we walked in was perfect. Everyone was friendly and helpful. Tanya our server was engaging and gave us great suggestions. The food was EXCEPTIONAL! Kudos to the chef for making such beauty out of his delicious food. If you are in town, don’t miss this place! You won’t be sorry. Thank you all the staff at frogs leap public house for a great dining experience!
As good as ever, and Tony is the best
The food was so different from other fine restaurants. So creative and delicious. The aromas in the restaurant make your mouth water as soon as you arrive. We brought an out of town couple and they said the steak rivaled Halls. Tanya was a great server. We will be back!
Wonderful to be able to go enjoy our favorite date place!!
Thanks to the owners for always making it special for us!!
During this time of COVID-19 we were concerned with social distancing and wearing of masks within the restaurant. They did a great job with both. Our waitress was very friendly and helpful. The food was one of the best meals we have ever had. Delish and served at proper temperature.
Great food. Server was curt and rushed. A shame to dampen our experience
Our 2nd time here and celebrating an anniversary. They did not disappoint! Great food and great service! Will be back for sure.
World traveler and foodie, I rate this in my top 20 dinners ever!
Eaten here for years now. It is Our Place for a special dinner for whatever the occasion.
You simply must go if in the area or ready for a road trip for some excellent, well presented, perfectly balanced, and unique cuisine! There are simply not words to describe the preparation and imagination of the dishes served. It is incredible! Take a look at the menu online. It speaks for itself and having looked at it, we were excited to give the restaurant a try. However, the menu could not have prepared us for the amazing preparation and imagination that created our meal. I could attempt to go into great detail describing such and would fail. You must taste it. So, make a reservation and hit the road Jack!
Excellent food. Loved all of it. It’s not a place for everyday, but for a very special occasion, it’s amazing.
Had dinner there Saturday night the 19th. Food was great. Awesome wine menu. But our server; Jacob could careless. He lacked about paying attention to detail. Several mistakes could’ve been avoided if he just payed attention and communicated with us. He was more focused on up selling than explaining items.
For instance, wanted a salad but i read the menu wrong and actually ordered the soup, if he just listened, he could have corrected the mistake by just explaining to me that i ordered the wrong item.
But what was the most disappointing of all was the chocolate mousse. It was spoiled. Completely off, didn’t taste chocolate at all. We informed our server and he brought it to attention to the chef... came back with the reply of too much cocoa. Which was a lie. We ate the whip cream and peanut butter cookie. Jacob made no effort on correcting the situation but instead he still charge for the desert.
I’m hard to “WOW” but this placed WOWed me. The flavor combinations and profiles were excellent. They’d be acclaimed in a big city and here they are tucked on a side street In Waynesville. They work as they were one foot in classic techniques and one foot in experimental flavors. Cocktails were well crafted, red wine served at the correct temp, and service was warm yet prompt. Overall an excellent dining experience.
Most creative menu in Waynesville. Very much farm to table.
Kimberly was very helpful and friendly. The owner came to the table to inquire about our experience and personally served an entree and the desert. Everyone enjoyed their selections.
Happy Birthday to me!
As always, the food and customer service were outstanding!!
We have dined at Frog’s Leap multiple times the past 6 years and have always had innovative and fresh farmed meals. Toni has always ensured that our dining experience was perfect. Her staff is professional and very attentive. I would definitely recommend Frog’s Leap to my friends and family.
Delicious. We celebrated anniversary and have eaten there many times. Never disappointed. The quality is still the best since their reopening from COVID-19.
Everything from the cocktails before dinner to the desert at the end was fantastic! Our server, Jack, was knowledgeable about the menu and helped us decide on what we should get. Another perfect night here
Food was amazing and unique . Our waitress, Tanya was fantastic and it was her first night on her own after training. It's the 2nd time we have been there and it still ranks in the best of our top 5 meal's .
After our third or fourth visit we are calling this our favorite restaurant. Great restaurants in our home town of Hendersonville, but this is worth the drive. Great food with interesting preparation and very knowledgeable staff
Frogs Leap has become a must for me when traveling thru NC. Their creative menu never disappoints!!
Always a pleasure to visit Frogs Leap when we’re in western NC. Fresh, imaginative and fragrant dishes. Also one of the best Bees Knees cocktail I’ve ever had! LOVE FLPH!
Service was great! Devil on horseback sooo good! Steak cooked perfectly. Always a must! Wine list is very good.
Very good food and service. Would definitely go again.
Halibut was one of the best I’ve ever had, including freshly caught while visiting Alaska!
One of the best restaurants in western North Carolina. Great food and great service. They also have a good wine selection and a full bar. It's where to go if you want an exceptional meal.
Pork loin is awesome.
So happy to have found this place. Delicious food. Server suggested a phenomenal wine and the owner was the hostess but also helping deliver and bus tables. I want to go back to Waynesville just to eat here again.
We go to the restaurant everytime we are in town. Waite staff and food is good. Manager has a way to making you feel bad if you mention that there is a problem even if you spent $156 for dinner. I've noticed it before so I didn't complain and didn't eat my entree. When waiter wanted to box it for us, I told him I didn't like it. The manager came over and just mad a few comments like it was my fault or the waiter's since he didn't ask if all was ok until we asked for check. Just uncomfortable....
Wonderful meal, locally sourced. Pecan crusted trout was outstanding, as was the focaccia bread and pistachio crusted goat cheese salad. Great service, socially distanced tables. A real gem!
Food was excellent, as was our server
Very creative chef. Very good meal. One of the best meals I've had in Waynesville
Anniversary dinner. Pork chop nicely charred on the outside, medium on the inside. Grits and collard greens appropriate sides! Loved the blackberry compote!
What a great restaurant with the unbelievably good food. And I see they keep winning awards which must say something. And it is a safe place to go during this "Year of Covid." You'll need a mask to get in and you'll need a reservation since they can only be at 50% occupancy. If you can't abide by the rules you'll need to find a Covid party elsewhere. But if you want an outstanding experience with terrific food and choices, make a reservation and grab your mask.
The food was amazing!
