    Food was overpriced, the skirt steak was remarkably small portion for the price and extremely salty. The sides that a company did we’re good, the waitress was excellent.

    I very much like that the restaurant is spaciously laid out so you don’t feel like you’re part of your neighboring tables conversation. Nice service and quality food. Portion sizes were on point. The devils on horseback appetizer was my favorite part of the meal.

    Tristan is one of the best servers we’ve ever had. The staff is attentive and our food was delicious, as always. Our only wish is that you bring back THE Caesar salad and the Parmesan truffle fries! The menu isn’t the same without them. The new additions were delicious but those are classics! My scallops were so tasty and the corn chowder it was on was out of this world!

    Frogs Leap Public HouseResponded on September 16, 2022We will bring them back, as soon as we have someone to cook, them, and we will do the fries when we have time on request now. Thank you!

    The Devils on Horseback did not disappoint. Melted in your mouth greatness. Great wine selection (recommend the Red Schooner in whatever Voyage they offer). The chef accommodated my need to avoid sesame seeds in the tuna tartar which was awesome. I did expected the fois gras to be at least warm but it was served cold (still great). Lovely restaurant with a great menu and wonderful service.

    Frogs Leap Public HouseResponded on September 16, 2022Thank you Vicki, we spoke privately and we appreciate your concerns, I would like to say that the foie gras in question is a torchon and traditionally served chilled. "Foie gras terrine or torchon should be served chilled with slices of crusty peasant-style bread" We occasionally do not understand our guests seasoning preferences and are happy to adjust when we are notified. We hope that next time wee see you we can adjust and improve your opinion of us. Thank you for your kind review.

    Memorable meal! We made a reservation the day before and received a phone call to confirm on the day of our dinner; I'm so sorry I didn't call back. We were traveling the Parkway with spotty service. When we walked in we were warmly greeted by name (how did she know?!). Great menu. I have an allergy to pork and asked our wonderful server if he might ask the kitchen to leave that portion off my dinner of sea scallops and he was very gracious to do. The scallops and the accompanied corn chowder, fingerlings and herbs were perfect. My spouse had pork chops and said his meal was equally perfect. We shared a creme brulee that was a good finish. Best thing I can say is our server and the hostess who kept tabs on our drinks and water are in a good place to let their friendliness and graciousness be appreciated. Will highly recommend to friends traveling the area. Thank you for a wonderful evening.

    We have been going to FLPH since it opened and we have never been disappointed. We had the Foie Gras appetizer and it was perfect! We also had the best presentation of Tuna Tartare ever, just brilliant and delicious. If that wasn't enough, the scallops entree was a hit and the chicken breast stuffed entree with white pimento cheese and then deep fried gave a whole new and wonderful meaning to "fried chicken". Tender, juicy, cheese filled and crispy. Chef hit it out of the ballpark and we were delighted to be there and throughly enjoy the home run.

    We went there knowing they were experiencing some staffing shortage problems. They had to cut back on the number of tables they could service at one time. My wife and I both chose the prefix menu. This was an eight-course meal of small plate offerings. Every course was outstanding. It was one of the best meals of recent memory for us. The service was excellent as well. This continues to be one of Waynesville's top fine dining restaurants, despite the challenges of today. We look forward to our next visit.

    We enjoyed the 5-course tasting menu this past week and it was superb. The attention to detail in each course as well as the seasonality of ingredients was spot-on and I know we will be returning. Our server Tristan was delightful- very knowledgeable and personable and we would certainly seek him out again. I cannot recommend this enough!

The food and drinks were phenomenal. I absolutely adored our server Tristan C. It was the best dining experience I’ve had in a while.

    Love Frogs, and the new menu Rocks, so many great items to taste and you get a wide variety. Add the wine paring to it and it is an awesome value. The menu will be changing frequently but if you have a chance to get their version of the Gazpacho, it is to die for.. #Eatlocal #Frogsrocks

    We have been to Frogs Leap many times and the food is always outrageously good. Though I can’t remember her name, our server this time wasn’t as friendly as others we’ve had, and unfortunately that can make or break an experience, especially when you are spending hundreds of dollars on dinner. Also, I’m not sure if this is meant to be a family restaurant or not, but we came with our baby and there are no high chairs and also no changing station in the women’s bathroom, so I had to change my baby next to a toilet on paper towels. I wish a few things would change to make it an optimal dining experience. Other than that, food gets 10/10, and the owner is very accommodating and friendly!

    This was a perfect place after a long drive. Luckily, we did not get delayed any longer than we did, otherwise, we would have missed out. Perhaps cocktails taste better after driving almost 700 miles, but the Boreal Chorus bourbon cocktail was outstanding. It was a perfect balance of sweet, sour, bitter, and even heat. I will be attempting to hack that recipe for a long time. The Berkshire pork chop was the best pork chop I ever ate. My wife’s stuffed chicken breast was the best one she ever ate. I love Asheville, but I am glad I decided to take the scenic route on to our next destination instead of through Asheville, otherwise, we would not have had this awesome dining experience.

    We started at the bar where Neal was fantastic as our bartender. Friendly. Fast service. Great guy. Martinis were great as well as the dates and pork belly were the best. Made our way to dining room. Server Kyle was attentive and friendly. Burrata was fresh and homemade. Creapella with scallops and NY Strip both did not disappoint. We come here every year! $250 for 5 drinks and food.
