Enjoyed the food tremendously. Best NY Strip I’ve had ever.
We ordered two desserts: chai creme brûlée and chocolate cheesecake. Both were decadent.

Pork was absolutely delicious. Also the fried green tomatoes was excellent. The trout was average. I felt it was over seasoned.

It was my first time there. I was surprised that there was no bread served before the meal. I would say the food is pricey, but delicious

Father’s Day. We usually love this place. It’s one of my favorite restaurants. Service was just not on point for this special place. Our table felt overlooked and underserved with beverages making it a bad experience. When the tab is 400$ for a party of four I expect top notch service.

Other than that the food was delicious as usual

Kimberly was our server, very courteous, knowledgeable and helpful. Food was of a very high standard, good recommendations and wine paring options. We had a great experience and our server helped with a special birthday dessert treat as well. It could not have been a lovelier evening! Thank you Frog’s Leap we look forward to a return visit.

After an easy 40 minute drive from our home in North Asheville, and user friendly Waynesville parking, my bride and I were warmly greeted and seated by the hostess at our table. We enjoyed a pinot noir and a lovely margarita. Our meal included fresh salad, a wonderful seafood plate, some Asian tastes, and pecan pie for dessert, all served efficiently and in a friendly manner.

Go and enjoy. If there is a better place to dine in WNC, we have not found it.
