Vegetarian tasting menu came across as bland and repetitive, lacking in diversity of flavours and techniques

We had an incredible meal at Frog. We were treated as individuals and made to feel special from the moment we arrived. Each course was superb, inparticular the additional course of lobster! The cocktails we had prior to the meal were some of the best we had tasted and made perfectly. The wine we had with our meal fitted excellently and we were offered good advice by the sommelier. The only downside of our meal was as a coeliac they were very attentive for the majority of the meal however I discovered one of the desserts had some gluten within it. They were very apologetic and gave us our cocktails for free. It was clear that the course had slipped through the system and it wouldn't put me off returning. Overall a really special meal and one that I will remember.

The staff were all super friendly and providing great service without being intrusive. We did the Adam tasting menu and my husband was allegic to shellfish, but they we able to replace all the items easily. Food was sublime - flavours and pairings worked wonderfully. The best steak tartar we've ever tasted! The bar downstairs is cosy and welcoming - do book a space after dinner as the cocktails are also some of the best I've had in London - unusual combinations, but again tasty and beautifully crafted.

Delicious food, friendly and attentive serving staff. Loved that the chefs brought out the food and explained a bit about the dishes.

Would highly recommend the 5 course tasting menu and Adams apple cocktail.

Great atmosphere, relaxed and loved the open kitchen.

Amazing from start to finish. Incredible food (particularly the lobster with Wagyu fat), great cocktails and sitting at the pass to see Adam and Sean working up close. Adam was very happy to chat through the menu and the workings of the kitchen which made it a very special experience.

We had one of the best dinning experiences! We had Adam's menu (degustation), and it was delicious! Every course was amazing. Nice plating, extremely good flavors, great service. Can't say that something was wrong or I didnt like it! Really want to be in that kitchen to have the full experience one day! Definitely will come back!

Frog by Adam Handling is a triumph! From the warm, modern and friendly atmosphere, to the great service and the - most crucially - the outstanding food. We had the Adam tasting menu and it is so good! The wine choice is great, some lovely ones that won't break the bank, and we also had 2 delicious cocktails in Eve's bar, which is very cool and worth a visit on it's own. Go for the cheese doughnuts! Go for it all!

Fabulous food and service in the restaurants. Surely a Michelin star soon!

Cocktail bar was a let down due to very poor service (waitress repeatedly forgot we had ordered drinks) and then not very tasty / fairly bland cocktails. A very different experience from the restaurant.
