    Our overall experience was excellent! First, we arrived early not knowing if we had to fight for Street parking. I was pleasantly surprised to see they had a lot. Next, when we walked in and was greeted by Slim, he read off my special instructions about my daughter's food allergies and assured us that we had nothing to worry about, and he was so right! Jess was our server and she was amazing! She gave us great suggestions and was very attentive! The entire team was aware of the allergies and the Executive Chef even altered a dish she ordered due to that. Now, our food was delicious and everything came out hot and fast. The garlic fries and bruschetta started the meal off great! We then rolled into entrees with, NY steak, which was yummy, the braised pork shank, which was a hearty bowl of fall off the bone, deliciousness, then the carpaccio was good too. That drink, Slim love, was very tasty and refreshing! We all enjoyed our Father's Day dinner and can't stop raving about the excellent customer service! This was our first time, but definitely not the last.

    With a very inviting and comfortable interior and beautiful bar, the mood was set for a wonderful evening of outstanding cocktails and delicious food. There were plenty of options and too many great-sounding choices to enjoy in one visit. We had perfectly prepared halibut and one of the best hamburgers and fries we've EVER had. I would highly recommend you try Frog & Slim - it is a treat that won't disappoint!

    We sat outside and enjoyed the weather. Food was delicious and timed perfectly. Lovely cocktails and a great offering of wines by the glass and bottle. My partner had the pork shoulder and said it was one of the best he’s had. I ended up ordering the cheese plate as a dessert and it was the perfect ending with a glass of red.

    Our dinner was just not ok, certainly not 4-1/2 stars on Yelp. Just very standard fare. In fact, I’m disappointed in myself for choosing Frog & Slim when there were many other very good restaurants to choose from.

    We arrived precisely at 6:30pm for our reserved table and were greeted warmly by the host. It's like he truly was happy to see us there! We were promptly seated and our server brought water right away and took our drink order. After viewing the menu, we made our dining choices and started with the Deviled Eggs and Bruschetta appetizers. Both were delightful and artfully crafted. For dinner I ordered the Mussels and Shrimp Piccata Pasta which had an ample amount of seafood. The pasta was a very generous portion with olive oil, garlic a sprinkling of cheese and a nice piece of garlic bread on the side. My dining companion ordered the braised Pork Shank which was absolutely lovely, cooked exactly right with meat falling off the bone. This was our first visit to Frog & Slim but it was impressive and we'll definitely be back.

    Had dinner at Frog & Slim from a recommendation from OpenTable as a top 10 restaurant. The recomendation didn't disappoint. We dined outdoors and had some street noise but overall, a very pleasant dining experience. Jess our server for the evening provided excellent service and gave helpful recommendations. A fairly new restaurant it will become one of our favorites. We had the Alaskan Halibut and Chicken Confit. Both were excellent. We topped off the dinner with the Bread Pudding.

    My wife and I had an awesome evening here! Food was great, service was excellent and we just really enjoyed ourselves. Standout service: Jack our server was absolutely awesome and Jess the manager was so warm and attentive as well. Some standout dishes: the bruschetta was amazing, using baba ganoush as a spread and fresh garlic it was really good. The ribeye was aged and very very tasty! And to finish things off the espresso crème brûlée was really really good! Our first experience made us big fans and we’ll be back for sure! Thanks Jack and Jess!!!!

    The waygu burger was very decadent but too much so. Would be better if they mixed it with another meat to cut the richness. The muscles were too large for my taste and lacked salt. Drinks were ok.

    Traditional menu of drinks, appetizers and entrees done exceptionally well. We tried salmon, sea bass, Wagyu burger, and rack of lamb--all delicious, nice presentation. Bread pudding dessert was modest in size and big on flavor, good texture. We sat outside, indoors might be louder. Will go back again.
