wonderful Thanksgiving dinner - just 2 of us - but nice attention, not overly pushy, but excellent meal, quiet nose level, and fabulous service.

Only (minor) issue was no valet parking due to covid, but we found parking on a street 2 blocks away. All worth it!

Wife and I did a date night. It’s a beautiful place. The bar was romantic and the bartender was knowledgeable and friendly. As was the hostess. Our waiter was good but seemed distracted. Which was odd because it was a slow night. The dining room was beautiful. Like a garden atrium style. Cozy and pretty. The food was just meh for the money. It wasn’t bad. Was just ok. But I’m not like holy moly I can’t wait to go back. I think the next time if there is a next time we’d just sit at the bar and order burgers and such. But for the price I doubt we’d go back.

When making reservation, requested a nice table for Anniversary dinner. Arrived on time and was put upstairs on a walkway. Maybe the worst tables in the restaurant. They had plenty of help sharing duties which created some disjointed service. Drinks took long to arrive. Appetizers were out quick and entrees too quick. Food was tasty. We had oysters and beet salad as starters, skirt steak and chicken roulade for entrees . Well prepared. Deserts of crime brûlée and sticky toffee were ok. The toffee cake was very dry. The issue with desert was complete before the cappuccino and wine arrived. They did bring glasses of champagne on them, after we were finished. They would be better served with wait staff being assigned tables vs their system which would coordinate courses for a more enjoyable experience. Parking is non existent, so prepare to walk two blocks to the public garage in a less than safe area. Since it is about 26 miles from home, I would not make the trip back. It’s good but there are many as good and better closer to home.

If you like paying high prices for a mediocre dining experience, this is the place for you. The shame is, all the food was very good, but not exceptional. But the service was sub-par. Three of four dinners served. Then the last one a few minutes later. Soup served, no spoon. Salad dressing requested never came. Wine was ordered but not delivered until we asked after our appetizers were served. Nothing arrived hot, including the tea water, which came with no sugar/cream. Again, chased down the server. Our server seemed annoyed by any request and overall had an arrogant attitude. It had been several years since we ate here. It will be many more before we return because we paid for a five star dining experience and got mediocrity instead. Unacceptable, even with the COVID service excuse.

Just a wonderful place to go out to eat. The ambiance, presentation and quality all served was excellent. No doubt that the bone-marrow appetizer was amazing. Anyone who likes this, you must give it a try here. I miss your cauliflower puree side dish which was my personal fav side dish so please consider bringing it back. Thanks! What topped all was the staff who were so helpful and pleasant.

Very enjoyable experience. The ambiance is great with all the greenery around. The dishes are well made. We got the zaatar flatbread which was very well flavored (although it was more of a loosely thrown veggies and legumes over the bread and most of the chickpeas rolled off onto the plate right away, but all the ingredients complimented each other very well). The bacon wrapped chicken was very succulent and well flavored as well. The swordfish was good too. The Mexican hot chocolate (sans alcohol) was delicious with an orangey undertones. For dessert we had the almond cranberry semifreddo which was very nicely flavored, but we thought the amount of the cranberry semifreddo was too much for the almond cake servicing as the base. Overall it was a very enjoyable dinner and I’m looking forward to returning and trying more items on the menu.

Parking is limited so anticipate paying 10 bucks at the Hyatt. The service was terrible and they are clearly short on quality help. While very pleasant they were trying to handle the parties that were going on. So the focus was not the regular dinners who had to wait nearly 30 minutes for a drink that was short poured. Even the desert came nearly 20 minutes after the coffee. The food however was very good. The gnocchi was light and we enjoyed the chicken with bacon and duck. Inside it is nice if not a bit disconnected. Again the big negative was the service which was a shame.

I have been long awaiting a dinner at The Frog & the Peach. My husband made a reservation to celebrate my birthday. I was so excited! It started by three different servers attending to our table. The first server, a lovely young lady, took our drink order. She returned shortly thereafter, with bottled water. A second server repeated the specials & retook the drink order. A third server started to share the specials, at which point we stopped him. He took our appetizer & dinner order. 40 minutes had now passed since our drink order. We asked where it was & were told there was only one bartender. Our appetizers were presented, but my husband's cocktail had yet to be delivered. A few minutes later his drink appeared. We both ordered the smoked salmon appetizer. It was nothing special either in taste or presentation. My husband ordered the swordfish, which was a small portion. It was flavorful, but again nothing special. I ordered the Cacio e Pepe. It was very dry and the pepper overshadowed the pecorino romano cheese. For dessert, we ordered chocolate ice cream & sorbet. Both were underwhelming. Needless to say, it was a very disappointing experience!

A birthday celebration for my husband. Excellent food and the choices were varied. Service was a bit slow because, as the manager explained, help is hard to find. A very lovely evening for a special occasion. The lamb shank was superb and we all enjoyed our dinners. Beautiful surroundings. Will return soon.

The service was fine for the first 15 minutes. Then it got very crowded. You are severely understaffed. There was one waiter for the whole upstairs area. We weren’t even asked if we wanted another drink. When our dessert was served which was crème brulee we weren’t even given spoons to eat it with. It sat there for at least ten minutes and was ice cold when we finally were able to flag someone down for spoons. That and our cappuccino were ice cold. Considering the prices you charge you really have to work on your customer service. We will not be coming back.

My great experience started with a warm fresh piece of bread with herbed butter. It was uphill from there with a delicious mixed green salad and a halibut entree. So glad we chose Frog & the Peach for our Anniversary celebration. Reasonable pricing for the high quality and taste of the food.

maître d Allesandro graciously assisted with parking as there is no vallet service. Bartender was not attentive, hostess did not seat my party at the reserved time and subsequently sat us in the atrium, adorned with plastic uncomfortable chairs. Tuna appetizer serving the size of a marshmallow and zataar with hummus was pita with sliced green olives. Waitress was gracious and attentive. Frog and the Peach is not a destination nor is New Brunswick NJ.

We had the taste of Germany tasting dinner with the wine pairing. The food was excellent and the service was great. There was an explanation with each wine and it was very helpful. Would have liked to do the beer pairing as well but one can only drink so much.

My guest and I really enjoyed the night with Live Jazz. It was our first time at TFTP. The service seemed a bit overwhelmed with guests, without not to compromised much the service. The food was great, the option of 3 courses meals was amazing. The beverages pairing was perfect. I would say that surely I am returning back sooner. Special thanks to chef Bruce for calling me to check on me and the guests giving us good advice to get there earlier, you saved the night. I really appreciated that.
