Michelin starred Frog by Adam Handling is a place to really submerge yourself in a theatrical show. You’re facing the kitchen, the chefs come to your table and you are able to really interact with every member of the team. Frog is luxury in an environment where you feel comfortable being whoever you are and where all elements in the restaurant are connected to offer a truly memorable experience.

The dishes are very emotional and they all mean something to Adam. Each and every one of the dishes has a story behind it, whether it’s a memory from Adam’s childhood or something that has inspired him or the team.

    Food was excellent, if a bit sparse. Service was friendly but overall a little slow. Setting a touch strange with the window onto the street.

    Lovely food but the decor does not match the food. Missing white table clothes and nicer interior. Food is amazing in presentation as well as in taste. Top, top!!! Service also fantastic: friendly and efficient. Very friendly and professional indeed.

    Lovely meal! The food was amazing and so creative. Service was warm and welcoming, though the pacing of the meal was a bit off. Had to wait ~30min for the dessert course which was surprising for a restaurant of this caliber. Overall great meal.

    Food and service are really good .. value for money regarding the number of courses, generosity of portions and being only a 1 Michelin star is ridiculous We paid here as if we are dining in the finest establishments in the world of fine dining which did not reflect in the service provided

    It was life time experience! I felt like a queen when one of the staff helped me to take off my coat. We got the best table without asking! Also, I got an edible candle for my birthday! It was like mini theatre to watch an amazing customer service and fluent kitchen work! Moreover, I want to give compliments for “eggs with smoke”, don’t remember a real dish name, but this was my favourite! Italian wine, which we chose, exceed my expectations! Thank you for everyone for such unforgettable birthday evening!

    Came for lunch to celebrate a friend’s birthday We were not disappointed. From the moment we arrived the staff were welcoming and attentive. The tasting menu is superb. There was not one course that we didn’t like. The attention to detail and presentation is amazing: like works of art - almost too beautiful to eat, but we did, and we were treated to the most amazing tastes you can imagine. It’s pricey but you get the wow factor and that’s priceless on special occasions

    Food and service were outstanding. Charming space but impossibly noisy, and we’re used to noisy city restaurants. The noise made it difficult to hear explanations of food and wine, which decreased the enjoyment somewhat.

    Innovative and delicious throughout- reminded me of 2/3 star experiences. Staff were friendly, informative and good company. Wine list is worth a cover to cover read - it clusters the choice in a different and helpful way. A very strong recommendation. Price was on a par (£600 for 2)with those 2/3 star names vs single star restaurants. I suspect it won’t be long before Frog adds a star or 2.

    Good but not great, we eat at Michelin star restaurants on a regular basis and The Frog was not one we will be raving about, there are much better restaurants for the same kind of price. The menu was hit and miss, the snacks to start were lovely, but there seemed a lack of consistency with the menu, a large piece of bread with chicken butter seemed unnecessary and a waffle with fish and maple syrup, very stodgy and not exactly Michelin star, the quality of the traditional dishes was very good and enjoyable, it just all did not seem to flow or leave you saying wow!!! The service started off well, great sommelier, informative server who changed half way through our meal, at one point another course got shoved right in front of us whilst we had not finished the other one, the waiter looked surprised when we asked if it was possible to wait until we had finished. We were drinking still water and somehow ended up with sparkling, no real finesse just splashed all over the table. It was a Friday night and busy, almost chaotic I would say. A little disappointing for a meal that cost well over £600.

    The food at Frog is outstanding and the presentation creative. We were greeted by a very friendly and welcoming host who immediately set us at ease. The only downside for me was our server. He did not greet or welcome us in any way. I don't believe he ever smiled throughout the service. He presented as extraordinarily snooty. At one point, when serving us a sturgeon dish, he said "you probably have never had this in your real life". Really? Despite the excellent food, I don't know that we will return to Frog because of the way we were treated. You can have high-end dining without the attitude.

    Celebrating a birthday, this was not the first time we'd been to Frog. As previously, it was a wonderful experience: great food - creative, beautifully presented and very tasty. Service was excellent. Fewer tables in the restaurant than previously made for a less noisy, more enjoyable environment. One of the aspects of the menu I found particularly impressive was the determination to use bits of the main ingredients that might otherwise have been thrown away. An example was the use of lobster shells to make a very tasty foam to go with the lobster meat. Many other examples; all delicious. Well done Frog; well done Adam!
