    Had a nice time celebrating daughter’s birthday. Food was delicious and as a diabetic, the chicken confit allowed me to stay within what I was allowed to eat.

    Had an Easter Sunday brunch reservation booked on a recommendation from a friend. I was so pleased with the food but, most surprised by the superb service helpful,energetic,knowledgeable. Even the greeting at the door was great! Biscuits and gravy had just the right kick of spice and didn't feel overly heavy. I like this place a lot and hope they stick around.

    Ambiance was soulful and was reminiscent of a modern jazz club. Our host was Elaina and she was fabulous! We moved tables and as a result we’re supposed to have a different person but, we asked to keep her. We were NOT disappointed. She provided great suggestions and was full of genuine smiles, pizzazz and comic relief making us feel as we’d dined in a professional yet familial like establishment. The food was delicious! We couldn’t get enough of the deviled eggs, clams, Alaskan ora kind salmon, Wagyu burger, braised pork shank, rack of lamb, chicken confit, bread pudding, chocolate truffles and pumpkin crème brûlée. Quality food, service and ambiance = we’ll definitely visit again.

    I wasn't sure about this place but it turned out to be a very pleasant time. Our waiter, Jack, was very helpful and funny. My wife and I had a great time. A little pricey but I felt it was worth it. I recommend this place to people who enjoy a good steak and are not afraid of spending some money.

    I ordered lamb ribs, chicken confi, and bread pudding Chicken dish was good and so was the bread pudding. But lamb ribs had mo flavor to them. Would like more flavor. Seats are too upright and tight and you have to lean on the table. There is no way to sit without leaning on table.

    We really loved the food (she had the New York Strip and I had the Waygu Burger) and the service was great, but it did feel a tad overpriced, and please keep in mind there is a 3% service charge added to each bill before you calculate your gratuity. The location is good (at 16th & O), but if you're driving downtown and have reservations, give yourself enough time to find parking ... it's a scavenger hunt. Overall, a really good dining experience and we'd go again.

    Where should I begin? First, and foremost, the food was some of the best food I have tried in my lifetime. It reminded me of fine dining in Paris in my Army days what seems like a lifetime ago. The Filet melts, while you taste the citrus and perfectly seasoned meat fibers as they dissolved slowly in your mouth! The tuna, lamb, soup, salad, all offered perfection in every savory morsel. If I were to rather this place simply by the food and friendly staff, 5 stars effortlessly….However; both my wife and I walked away feeling as if there was something more.. something missing. This was touted as a Valentine’s Day experience… The mood wasn’t really there and it wasn’t just because it was a rainy night. There were no special decorations. There wasn’t any anything particularly interesting happening in the area or the restaurant. There was no music and this I think is the biggest flaw but that’s just me personally, as I pretty much like to have music for every situation, even with this small issue that wasn’t it. The person who cooked our meals didn’t come and greet us or even ask us how it was there was no wine included not even a soda with the price of the meal, and I wouldn’t be opposed to paying a little bit extra to having the wine included , even when the waitress poured the water, it didn’t feel like any particular occasion rather a typical Tuesday night in a quiet restaurant in a sleepy town. This experience could’ve been so much better and probably would have created a return customer if it were handled a little bit differently , but I believe next year we will be looking at one of the other area restaurants for one of their experiences, but I would still suggest it for anyone looking to try some really really good food.

    Cannot say enough nice things about our experience at Frog and slim. We had a reservation at 5:30 but because the play ran shorter than we expected we arrived early and the restaurant was able to accommodate our early arrival. Good idea to make reservations. Great food (especially the rack of lamb) and ambience.

    Fun place for nice drinks and dinner. Service was excellent. two of us had the Wagyu burgers and fries - one of the best burgers I've had. One member of the party had dairy allergy and staff made sure that her steak had a nice substitute sauce (some restaurants just remove the sauce and serve the meat by itself, which is not as interesting and 'dry'...this was not the case here). The only minor issue was some sand in one of the Clams, which is always jarring. Parking in the area at 7pm is a challenge, so give yourself a bit extra time to find a spot.

    The Beet Salad was ridiculously small for the $17 price tag. There were three slices of beets and 1/4 cup of arugula on the plate. There needs to be more to this salad for that price. Our party of six all felt our empty dishes should have been cleared sooner by the staff. Otherwise, the food was good.

    Fantastic food from the arancini, the butternut squash risotto, the halibut and the espresso crème brûlée. We arrived at the same time as several other parties so it took a little time to be acknowledged and get started with menus, but after that the service was excellent: friendly, timely, attentive, efficient. The ambience was cozy and fun with very comfortable booth seating. Can’t wait to go back again.

    I’m ambivalent about this restaurant. My first experience and food here about 2 years ago was very good. Now I felt it was just OK. Cheese sauce under halibut? Spicy Mac & Cheese (linguine) with clams? It was very good & to my liking, but not to my husband who ordered it. No mention of this in menu description. Other cons: Limited menu choices, pricey and somewhat limited wine list.

    Appetizers delicious, drinks well made, had friendly conversation with one of the food a servers and what they enjoyed. Dessert was the only let down coffee crème brûlée. The coffee crème good little loose but however did brûlée portion added sugar unevenly and torched(brunt) sugar but if just removed brunt sugar and enjoyed it. Otherwise this was a new try and would definitely recommend to others great job!!!

    I’ve been to Frog & Slim many times. As always, the food and ambience were excellent. It’s was a bonus last night that the owner stopped by our table, along with many others, on his way out to ensure the food was to our liking. Will certainly return and would highly recommend without hesitation.

    Our first time here but won't be our last! Jack was our awesome waiter and he went to great lengths to describe the entrees and his recommendations. Started with the truffle fries and these are not to be missed with the aioli for dipping. Next hubby and I shared a Caesar salad before our main entree of Halibut. Hubby's Halibut steak was a little overdone but mine was perfect. Both sat atop a puree of butternut squash. Wish we had opted for the fingerling potatoes and not the cauliflower which was meh... This place obviously a favorite of many locals as it was almost full by the time we left. Can't speak highly enough of the professional friendly service provided by Jack and his trainee (sorry don't remember her name...) Have dinner here you won't be disappointed.

    The eggs Benedict , biscuits & gravy, shrimp & grits had good flavors, but…the biscuit is more like a brioche bun, and wished the “grits” wasn’t a polenta square. Loved the decor. The brûlée grapefruit was so good that came with the zucchini French toast was pretty good. Bread pudding was so-so; the sauce made the dish. Our service was excellent. There were only 4 parties present on Sunday @ 10am.

    Wonderful spot. Table was ready on time. Excellent advice from staff. Good drink selection. Old Fashioned was overly sweet. Surprisingly busy and a surprisingly long wait for food to arrive after ordering, but quality attention to the dishes and presentation still made it well worth the time and money spent.

    The worst Dine Downtown experience I have ever had. The appetizer, tuna tartare, looked and tasted like tuna salad on stale toast (see pic). The dessert, Coconut Macaroon, was harder than a golfball, and it tasted like a big solid glob of hardened sugar with coconut. My friend and I both ordered it, and tried to break it to eat it - after repeated attempts, including stabbing at it with our forks, we just gave up. The main dish of sirloin was ok but with gristle. This place is totally a mediocre restaurant pretending to be fancy and upscale. The best part of this place is its funky name. Will not return. * Update: The Manager of this restaurant called me to discuss our experience, which showed that he did care very much about what his restaurant provides. Because of his sincerity, we will likely return to try their regular menu somewhere down the road.
