Service was excellent and ambiance is very good.2 of the 4 of us had the trout but it was over seasoned so that the delicate fish was indistinguishable from the potatoes which were also overly spicy. My husband's chicken was very good as was the black bass special.

The food was great, but the menu was limited and a little strange. I had the lamb chops which were awesome, but the accompaniment of strange chick pea stuff on which the lamb chops rested was weird. But then I am not a chick pea person. So the whole dinner was 2 lamb chops if you were not interested in the pile of chickpea stuff. Considering that, the dinner was a little over-the-top expensive. There was no other accompaniment to the lamb chops. The service was great. The wine was expensive but reasonably good.

We enjoyed our dinner at Frog’s Leap. Our server was knowledgeable and attentive & the food was interesting & well prepared. Snapper special was delicious, as were the burrata & bison sliders. We enjoyed the small plates concept, which allowed us all to sample different items. Nice selection of wine & cocktails to compliment the food. Always enjoy our visits to this well run restaurant.

Oh my - the burrata with heirloom tomatoes, fresh basil and balsamic was divine! I also tried a craft cocktail called a Warsaw Mule. The thing that really set it apart was a ginger shrub, made in house. Definitely repeatable. Great folks, excellent service, wonderful casual ambiance.

Amazing food...best pork chop I ever ate...not even close...Neville, our friend and server, took care of our needs despite the busy PM...desserts were fitting conclusion to a fine evening...pecan pie with the FLPH creative twist. Our German guests were much impressed!!

Our waiter was fabulous and I said I was going to write his name down . He said he’d been there 3 years and was just top notch. His last name might have been Gaye 😬. He was training a gal that night.

We dined at Frog's leap on a Saturday night. The food was excellent. Our only issue was the time it took for our food. Our waitress was good and was extremely busy - but the time between getting our drinks, order and then food was extremely long. I believe it was over an hour by the time our food came from when we sat down. The issue was not with the waitress as we could see her hustling the whole time we were there. I don't know if the restaurant was short staffed that night or if this is typical. We would definitely go back if in the area because the food was delicious. We all had something different and we all enjoyed them.

Came with 4 friends - all 5 of us left full and happy. The chef here is very talented. Wine and beer list is very good! Nice atmosphere as well. Whenever I visit Waynesville- I always try to catch at least one dinner at Frog’s Leap.

This is my favorite restaurant, hands down. The food is always outstanding. The parmesan truffle fries and the pistachio fried goat cheese were both winners on our last visit - even for one of our party who won't touch goat cheese. The sea scallop and lobster-saffron risotto was a very interesting combination of flavors. We all agreed the black angus ribeye was the pick of the night though. The atmosphere is casual with good music. Service is always spot on and they might have the best chairs around.

Very good experience. Have been there several times before. Brought 4 friends with us and they were delighted with my choice. Only negative was my pork chop was way too salty.

Frogs Leap exceeded our expectations for food, service and ambiance. We chose to dine there for my birthday. It's a bit of a drive for us from Brevard, NC - about an hour - but it was worth it. We arrived early and were seated promptly, no problem. Abby, our server, guided us through the menu, offering suggestions on what we might like. We had no quarrel at all with her ideas and the selections we made. We had an appetizer (cheeses) and two small bites (Caesar salad and the Thai crab cakes) and then the trout and pork chop entrees, topped off by dessert - it was my birthday - Creme brulee and the brownie. And Abby even brewed a pot of decaf to go with my rich dessert. The whole meal was wonderful. We raved to the staff, and later to our friends and family. We will be back. This is worth the drive. Food fresh, service attentive by not overbearing and the atmosphere upscale casual. I highly recommend you try it when you're in Waynesville.

What a wonderful experience we five had at Frogs Leap restaurant. I choose the tenderloin and I do think it was the best I’ve ever had! Each bite was such a treat.. Some of the other entree’s chosen were the scallops with shrimp and the pork chop. Everyone was raving about their dishes.. We will be going back soon..

Neville, our server, was very attentive, friendly, and courteous. His suggestions were very helpful in making our choices. This was perhaps the best meal I have ever eaten. The scallops and shrimp were juicy and perfectly cooked. The side dishes were delicious and everything was spiced perfectly. The chocolate mint dessert was world class. This was a truly amazing experience!

We were very pleased with our most recent dinner at FLPH ! The staff went out of their way to make our dining experience very special and made sure that our special dietary requests were met and actually exceeded by suggesting yummy substitutions for items we were unable to eat. We highly recommend FLHP for special events and even for just an evening away from our kitchen!
Thank you all!
