Wine list by the glass too limited.
We have been going to Barking Frog for many years. Although their food is usually very good, I've found them to be inconsistent as of late...I find that I can have 2 or 3 terrific meals, then go back and have a disappointing one - this was one such visit, although only with the food. We were seated right away by a very nice Hostess, Our server, as well, was very nice, personable, and kept up a good pace. Barking Frog was recently remodeled and everything looked beautiful and cozy inside.
The food: I ordered their burger "medium rare" and it was delivered just about well-done. I knew I would only finish half of it, so chose not to send it back. I did mention to the server that it was pretty well done and she asked if it was "too well done"...well, yes, when I ordered it medium rare, that would be the case. She was polite and offered a couple of times to have it re-done, but I declined. In the end, she took it off the bill after discussing it with the Manager. My husband's seafood salad was fine, and our other companion felt that his short rib sandwich was "adequate", at best. We'd also ordered garlic fries - which tasted like yesterday's garlic fries - soggy, limp - just inedible. I know that you take that risk when you're dining at the very beginning of service - I just don't expect this from this restaurant.
Finally, as we departed, the Manager was very nice and asked, as we exited, "How was your lunch today?" My companion said, "Oh, it was adequate", to which the Manager smiled and replied, "Oh great, thanks for coming in." Are you really listening, Barking Frog?
Very unwelcoming host, undercooked food, no special menu for the holiday. Seriously the nicest person was the lady cleaning the restroom. Never again.
Grand Marnier prawns are absolutely the best!! Good wine list and excellent service. My wife and I have made this our “go to” restaurant for all special occasions!
Barking Frog’s atmosphere is very nice, not to large so feels comfortable. Food is excellent, recommend the lamb burger with truffle fries. Great outdoor seating weather permitting.
Brunch menu was good, but wished for more egg options, such as seafood omelette or eggs Benedict.
Food was amazing. The lobster I had was the most tender I have ever had, it even had a sweet flavor to it as well
The barking frog has never been a substandard experience. Food, service, cleanliness, etc. Whole deal. Best in the state.
Relaxing and amazing service
We went to the Barking Frog for a prix fie Valentine dinner with wine pairing. The server was very gracious and even made a substitution for us on this dinner which we really appreciated. This was the official reopening of the restaurant after a substantial remodel of the kitchen and this could have been part of our problem. The food was just warm, not hot. Not sure what the dynamic is of this but that was our experience. The food itself was excellent but warm was a disappointment. Since this was a special dinner for us, we did not choose to send the food back to be rewarmed. Other than that, it was a wonderful evening.
