Very average food for higher price. Brussels sprouts were good so unless you like Brussels sprouts don’t go. Outside seating was nice, I’d go have drinks outside again but that’s it.

This was a horrible experience for myself and a friend of mine. We were hoping to have a nice Friday girls' night, and had made a reservation through OpenTable at Frolik for happy hour before our movie. We were exactly on time for our reservation, my friend arrived even a few minutes early. When she approached the hostess, she was told that their "reservation system was broken" and that our reservation could not be honored, but we could "wait in line" (mind you, the line went out the door because it was BEAUTIFUL outside - hence why we made a reservation!!). We presented our reservation confirmation email and still got denied and told to "walk around to find an open spot or wait in line." The hostess was so RUDE to us and not helpful at all. I have never been treated so horribly at a restaurant. The least she could have done was put us to the front of the line since we did indeed have a reservation and proof of one - how is it our fault that their system shut down? I've worked in restaurants and catering my entire life and have never seen such terrible customer service and rudeness from a restaurant. 100% will never be going there again - shame.

I made a reservation for Frolik for 5:15 last week. We arrived a bit after 5 and were told that there was no such thing— reservations did not start until after 6 and it was so busy there were no spots to stand and no way to get served for the next hour! I will never take any of my business guests there again, you can be sure. What an embarrassing mess that place is.

The location was convenient because we stayed at this hotel. We wanted breakfast and we're drawn by
the ease. The location was very cute and looked to be well thought out in terms of place, decor, and ambiance. That being said, the food was mediocre at best. My poached eggs were hard boiled. I had stomach issues the entire day after eating it. My friends who came with me had similar complaints but adjusted to fit the food they received. Either bland, overcooked, or not done well. Overpriced for the quality you get. Would not recommend unless you really are feeling lazy or just want drinks because the coffee was great.

Ambiance is comical. Props to whomever the photographer is because I thought we were dining on a swanky rooftop until we walked in to what appears to be conference room by day and dive bar by night. Dated carpeted floors, ceiling tiles, heinous furniture, tacky decor and literally nothing but tables on the patio - no string lights, heaters or plants. Don't get me wrong, the food and service were fine, but this place is not what I was expecting. Lots of potential but left a lot to be desired.

Not sure why Open table was available for reservations, the restaurant was open-seating. This meant that we did not in fact a table waiting for us.

We made a reservation because every website said this was the place to come to. It was empty when we arrived which seemed strange but we wanted to try it anyway. The service may have been the worst I’ve ever experienced. We sat down and it took about 15 min for someone to bring a menu. Outlet waiter knew nothing about the types of wine nor did he know answers to a few of our menu questions. After ordering a drink, it took him 25 min to bring it. After we were done eating we waited 35 min for our check which we had to ask another waiter for. After that, no one came back to take our check so we gave it to yet another waitress. The food was fine but I’d never go back after the terrible service

I'd recommend happy hour snacks - Brussels sprouts and salad were great. Otherwise gets too expensive, especially for vegetarian or non-red meat options. I'd suggest adding turkey burgers and nutburgers to menu.
Friendly and attentive service at our table.

The serving part was great, except we ordered a bottle wine and the server bring us the cheapest one but after tasting it he was ok by changing the bottle for the one we wanted from the beginning.
The food was very very salty and spicy. We couldn't return it back cause we already had to deal with a glass of champagne for which i was waiting for about 15 mins and i did not drink cause it didn'treally have a good taste, but it was in my bill and i paid for. Nevermind.
The other thing is the too loud music because of what i could not hear my friends i was dining with.
We had other expectations? but life happens.

Great food and excellent cocktails. Seemed a little frantic and disorganized when we arrived and no one greets customers at door. Even with a reservation, staff seemed a little hesitant to seat us. But, we had a great time and food and specialty cocktails were wonderful. S mores with all handcrafted elements were beyond lucious! We will be back!

So I took my boyfriend here for dinner on 12/09/18. We ordered some tostadas they were miniature size were way too salty and cost $16, we both ordered the 6oz burgers both asked for well done with no pink they both had pink my boyfriend didn't even finish his burger. With drinks and 20% gratuity they added themselves our total was $105.00 this dinner was worth $50 at the most. I wouldn't recommend anyone to come here to celebrate anything that is important to them!

We walked in and immediately get disoriented just trying to find a place to sit. Overall welcoming feel was very lacking. Once we found a place to sit (we had to seat ourselves) found a six top table - there we no tables for two. Once we sat our server came right over and was friendly. This was probably the best part of our visit. Drinks were ordered. We noticed a couch that sat 4 opened up so we moved. The couch cushions were terrible and dirty. We practically fell into the couch thank goodness for the extra dirty pillows which we used to sit on. I have the gluten allergy and worked with the server on my options which weren’t many - no gf options from the happy hour menu so I had to wait until 6pm for the dinner menu. I ordered the rock fish and when it finally came it had the overly fishy smell that was immediately smelled when it was delivered. I took one bite and moved it to the end of the table where it sat for almost 20 minutes. Finally I get up because I am hungry and ready to leave. I discover that the manager had walked by our table at least 5 times and said nothing- just more frustrations on my side. We paid for dinner minus the rock fish plate and won’t be back.

They did not set up the dance floor even though it was a Friday night. They said it was because an earlier event had left. The place barely had anyone in there and they ended up closing around 10:30 PM on a Friday night!

The rock fish was excellent, as were the brussel sprouts. The squash and burrata were meh, the flavors just didn't mix, so disappointing. 3 lovely cocktails, would definitely drink here again. The staff was great, especially given the large crowd (a conference was having drinks there at the same time.) The s'mores dessert was presented with warm, but useless, charcoal; fortunately they'd kitchen torched the marshmallows before arrival. It was a great idea but a disappointing execution. I wouldn't return for food, especially at their prices. The millionaires drinks menu is worth a chuckle or amaybe VERY special occasion (a single drink topped out at $425).

I went to Frolik for the first time with a friend visiting from New York and we were super excited to go to a rooftop bar. When we walked into the restaurant, two ladies told us to just go to the bar if we wanted anything. We found an empty table with 2 menus on the table and we waited for a server. 3-4 different servers/server assistants just walked by our table but didn't acknowledge us. Two more tables were seated and they were greeted with water. I had to walk inside to find a server and waited another 10 mins before someone came out. Our drinks were ordered and came out pretty quickly but our server disappeared again. I was frustrated at this point, so we wanted to leave but I didn't want to just walk out which I should have done. We had to track down our server again to get the check and he had enough time to circle the portion on the check where every check has 20% gratuity added. It was a horrible experience and there was no care for myself or my guest. I will not recommend this restaurant unless people love horrible service.

I have had food that was far better for far cheaper. My girlfriends burger was charred/burnt and overcooked. My tacos were good but not worth the price. They are $1 street tacos not 17 dollars. We spent around 50$ and didnt have alcohol, for somewhat mediocre food.

The coolest part is the fire pit outside but a large group was hanging out around it, who all seemed to know each other, so we did not get to enjoy or take photos.

The photos on Google make it look a lot nicer than it actually was.

The waitress was pretty good though.

If I go back to seattle I won't go there again. Nothing personal, but.. chilis is better for less. So were every other of the 14 restaurants I ate at.

Sat on patio on a beautiful day. Not many guests, but service initially very slow and inattentive (table not wiped down, no water or menus), but picked up once waitress finally came by. Mandatory 20% tip — maybe why service initially poor?

The food was mediocre but I heard they are good for brunch. We came a little too early perhaphs but it was slower which was good for the patio and games. They didn't get our drinks right and didn't know their alcohol selection. Otherwise I would rate this first experience closer to 3 stars. I would recommend checking it out on the weekend.

Very disappointing. I made a reservation for my boyfriends birthday. My only special request in the reservation was to sit outside and when we arrived they told me it was a first come basis and it was full.. then our waitress never filled our drinks and forgot to bring us plates for our appetizers or silverware to eat our food. Our waitress never came back to check on us and this was suppose to be a special birthday dinner and drinks.

We had planned a date night based on the pictures online. However once we arrived we walked into what I can only describe as a college party. I asked the server what was going on and she told us it was a guest dj and he had brought friends with him.
We proceeded to walk out and find somewhere else.
