Frolik Kitchen + Cocktails Ratings and Reviews
The restaurant was freezing! It was the weirdest thing. The server had a leather jacket on and most guests had jackets on as well.
The photos make the environment look way cooler than it is. The blue wall is small and the lighting is bright. The environment is fine, it's just pretty basic.
I looked it up online and I didn't see that they had a limited menu for Christmas. Was kind of disappointed by the options.
Our server was exceptional. Open Table gave us a reservation for 11am--when we got there they said the kitchen closed at 11am, and that they didn't serve lunch. The server was gracious enough to hold the kitchen open for us to order off the brunch menu. The food was great and our server continued to provide excellent service until we left. I was impressed! Thank you.
Given the high overall quality of the hotel (Motif), the restaurant was a disappointment. The hamburger was almost inedible and since the patty was small and thin, they'd only prepare it medium well -- which didn't help. A chicken pasta dish was tasty in a kind of Olive Garden way -- salt and cheese. Service was friendly and attentive, decor was a little bit like a bar in a TV show. We didn't try drinks so can't evaluate the bar service.
This place has so much potential: great location, great view! The service had a smile but was so disjointed it took two hours to get one round of drinks and some food. The food was terrible - such an unfortunate outcome for scallops. We were all very surprised - the experience will live on in our memories...😕
The food was excellent, unfortunately it took a very long time to receive any of the items we ordered to the table. The wait staff was almost non-existent as we had to continue to go out of our way to request service. The waiter only stopped once of his free accord to check on the table, and even at that time he was so fast that he didn't stay for answers to his questions, but hustled off to handle tables with only single ladies (possibly attached, but no men in their groups) to flirt and hang out for 10 mins or more at a time. Not an ideal experience.
It wasn't busy. The waitress was nice enough. The hostess was quite gracious. The bartender was kind of not pleasant. Food was good wine was fine. The biggest turn off was we are only a party of two and they put an auto 20% gratuity. Unless it's a large party it's completely inappropriate to do that. the service definitely did not deserve 20%.
First of all, I would like to say the food was delicious. That is the best of what I have to say. We had an early evening reservation at 6:15 pm. My wife chose the lobster pasta and the waiter returned to say they were out. She then reluctantly ordered the duck and he had to return to tell her they were out of that as well. This was a problem because the menu is very limited in entree options. She finally found something on the appetizer menu that would hold her over, but it was not really what she wanted. In the mean time, we had waited almost a half an hour for our cocktails and I had to ask the waiter to check on them. Our dinner orders came at separate times as did our cocktails. Our waiter knew there was discord with the situation, but he did very little to change the dynamic. I am certain he was not happy to be the bearer of bad news, but we got a perfunctory apology and no discount on our bill or an offer of something else to tide us over. As I said the food was great, but was it worth it to come back into that business to go through that again. Sadly, no.
The drinks were awesome and the patio was really nice. We went for live music and had a great server out on the patio. Once we went inside for our dinner reservation, the service was a lot slower, but they gave us a dessert on the house. Food was INCREDIBLE!
This place is beautiful. Loved my meal- Cobb salad. Fresh, quality ingredients. Server was absent. A different server came to check on us more than he did. When we asked for check original server forget so we had to go find him and ask again. Seemed annoyed with us.
Not into the scene so much. Felt like we were more an annoyance than a valued guest.
Poor service...maybe due to automatic addition of 20% service charge? Speaking of which, server didn't make us aware of this and didn't provide us the itemized bill. An attempt to get an additional 20%? Maybe, maybe not. Food is averGe and overpriced. Positives: outdoor, playful, trendy area. Good for expensive drinks downtown. Eat first, though, or share expensive small bites ( they were out of two apps the evening we were there).
This restaurant was hyped on the internet and the pictures are deceiving. Cool rooftop but interior dining is subpar with lousy service. Nice people but experience wasn't up to that of the great Seattle establishments. If you're looking for a hotel lobby feel with Nintendo64, or some drinks this is an OK spot but if you want an enjoyable meal head elsewhere.
Service was not that great. The waiters were dressed very casual for a supposedly nice bar, like sagging blue jeans. Plus I saw my drink was ready on the bar and it's sat there for 15 minutes while my waiter chatted with another person and joked around. Plus it's a rooftop bar but with no views. The pictures online looks a lot pretty than in person.
Disaster, and they didn't remove anything from the bill. They never brought a chiller so we had hot champagne. I got the wrong food and they replaced it but not the silverware. They never brought the salt we asked for. They disappeared for 20 minutes. They filled our glasses with sparkling water and topped it off with still. What a nightmare. Never go here.
The outdoor rooftop setting was lovely, but the indoor area seemed more like a sports bar. Service was spotty and they seemed like they really just wanted to bring us drinks. That said there seemed to be lots of groups, though one group left because no one waited on them.
We came here for lunch with a group of friends. We sat outside and it was a beautiful day. There are no umbrellas so make sure to wear sunscreen! I burned a little. We all really enjoyed our food. The quinoa burger was delicious!!! The mimosas weren't the best but the food made up for that. Server was nice.
I was looking for someplace new and not a traditional (read: insane busy) Mother's Day Bunch place in Seattle. I was searching through Opentable looking for a spot and saw that Frolik was going to have a "build mom a bouquet" flower activity for the kids - sold. Loved this place. I never write reviews and I never think to get names because of that, but the manager (blonde woman) was awesome; she was very accommodating, making sure the kids had what they needed to make my wife their personalized bouquets. She had personally went to Pike Place early to get all the flowers for this free activity for the kids. The kids loved it, but more importantly, the guest of honor (mommy) loved it even more.
The bacon and potatoes were excellent, and the rest of the food was fine (only tried bunch and kids stuff). The best thing about the place, besides the management/service, is the attached rooftop bar with ping pong and real shuffleboard; the kids had to be dragged away.
I plan to get my next work happy hour to Frolik the next time the sun comes out. Cheers!
