It was 90 degrees, so we opted to eat inside. Indoors is at the moment a very tight space, too close to the kitchen and bar. Until covid is over, you may want to wait for a cooler day and eat outside. The "gazpacho" was essentially yogurt and cucumber soup, no tomato, no taste. The duck sandwich was awful, some spicy notes (Siraccha?) trying to compensate for the poor quality of the meat. There are so many wonderful restaurants in New Brunswick, and I am sorry that the Frog and the Peach is no longer one of them.

We decided to have lunch to celebrate an anniversary. So happy we did. While there were plenty of other people there, we didn't feel jammed in or rushed. Bartender made very good cocktails although why they do not have Southern Comfort is puzzling. Lunch was perfect. Hanger Steak and Scallops. We shared appetizers and dessert. We have lived in the area for over 45 years and this was our first visit. Certainly not the last.

We were late due to an accident, but they were very accommodating for us and pushed our time back. Our server was super helpful with choosing a red wine and it our wine was superb! The bread was absolutely delicious with herb butter...so good. My husband started with the burrata appetizer then had the wagyu steak and loved both! I had the crab salad appetizer then tne tilefish, both were good! We opted for no dessert then were surprised with complimentary champagne and mini cupcakes for our anniversary celebration. All in all, a wonderful time!

I have been going to the Frog and Peach for almost 33 years. I have always enjoyed how it has changed and stayed the same. The menu is ever changing and the food is always fantastic. Great menu options were the gnocchi as an app and scallops for dinner. Desserts are to die for.

Ordered a chicken dish and didn’t realize it had bacon on it. Waiter took back and said I’ll get you a new one. I do not eat pork. He comes back with the same one and food is all in disarray. They picked out the bacon! Who does that? I. Could’ve done that, except the chicken tasted like bacon. I complained and by that time my husband was done with his dinner. Never again! I was shocked!

Very nice gourmet restaurant set in a newish up market residential area in downtown New Brunswick. Great outdoor eating area has been created, post Covid I would guess. Service terrific. One small hitch was a delay in the delivery of our dessert - manager comped us for that.

The food, as always was amazing. The chefs do such a great job of bringing inventive and perfect dishes to patrons. Unfortunately the service really let them down this time. We were seated and it took 20 mins for the waiter to take our drink order. Another 20 minutes until said drinks arrived. A different waiter came to rattle off specials. A different waiter brought our food out and plopped it on the table without explaining what appetiser was what. They then proceeded to take our appetiser plates away before appetisers were served. It was all just was too amateur for such a classy establishment. And then bringing the cheque our without a pen and just disappearing. I had to get up and hunt down a pen myself after not finding a waiter. Just need to finesse service because the food is amazing

We went for Sunday brunch. For appetizers, we got the biscuits and gravy, burrata, smoked salmon, and bacon. The appetizers are smaller than expected and not shareable between a group of 4. They were good. However, we probably wouldn't order the appetizers again due to their size for the cost.

For entrees, we got the short rib, the chicken and waffles, eggs benedict, and the grilled cheese. The star was the short rib and the grilled cheese. We would get that again. However, the chicken and waffles and eggs benedict were just mediocre.

Overall the meal was good. Some sections are must to have, but others were ok. The service was excellent! Our server was attentive and friendly. The decor was super cute.

I took the advice of an Open Table user, and called ahead about vegan/ vegetarian options. Wow!! Chef Bruce returned my call and told me about how they can make their meals vegan!! What a fabulous dinner we all had! My delicious grains had the most beautiful vegetables sauté to perfection in and on it. The presentation of my entree was in a gorgeous artisan bowl, like a work of art!! And I can not say enough about the staff!! My drinks was amazing fruits and in house, handmade syrups!! Our waiters were knowledgeable and friendly, even taking the initiative for our friends, who had their engagement, there at The Frog and the Peach!! (We had reminisced with the waiter) The staff did something special for them!!! What an amazing night, wonderful dining experience!! Can’t wait to return!!

The eggs benedict were very good The French toast was like over sweetened cake. Even my daughter who loves cake couldn’t eat it. The chicken and waffles were drowning in syrup with candied cherries. Our drinks never came and I had to get up and literally get salt for the table. Our waiter was clearly over burdened and looked it. We tried to get him to smile. For the food and certainly the cost A diner would have been a better choice. We have had great dinners and functions here in the past but something is clearly wrong. Hope they can correct it

My husband and I made reservations for the French Cuisine “Experience”. My only complaint was my first impression with the host who explained that my 8pm outdoor reservation was only a request and he couldn’t tell me when we’d actually be seated outside. I asked for an estimate, 10 minutes? 45? He hastily replied “I really don’t know, I honestly can’t tell you. Might be 20, maybe 45, I don’t know”. After several years as a hostess myself, I know this is literally his job to estimate wait times.
I’m not one to argue but this was irritating! My husband politely ushered me to the bar and our night made a turn for the better.
The bartender was polite, the drinks were perfectly balanced. The owner and chef was even behind the bar helping out and chatting with us.
Thankfully, we only waited for maybe 10 minutes until our outdoor table was ready. Our server was very knowledgeable of the wine selection and the foods paired beautifully!
Definitely a pricey dinner, but it was great for a nice date and special occasion. Despite the rude and frazzled host, we’ll return :)

Not worth the money. Disappointing a second time. Waiting staff disappeared for prolonged periods. The food is not what it used to be. The Wagyu beef ordered medium rare was delivered well done. Though they replaced it, it did not taste like Wagyu.

Going to skip it for some time.
