Went there for Valentines Day for the prix fixe menu, and the food was extremely well presented and tasty. Everything was very nice except for two very minor issues: our server spoke extremely softly that I had a hard time hearing (I’m into the second half of my life, so it’s possible that I’m partially to blame here), and I felt like they slightly rushed us early in the meal.

This is the last thing one would expect in a college town! The Frog and Peach is a lovely not-so-little eatery with a fascinating menu. There is no indication before you get there that is it a tapas style menu so it was a little bit of a surprise that the dishes were as small as they were but we just ordered more and all were delicious. The black truffle gnocchi and rabbit with pappardelle are stand outs. Fresh baked rolls with hand crafted cocktails are a lovely way to start your meal. We finished with a crème brulee (on the house for our celebration) and while is was scrumptious, I personally like my sugar layer newly burnt and still warm and alas this was not. Overall, a gem in New Brunswick, NJ and a must try.

I think this place is great and the amount of staff they have is perfect for how much attention is needed throughout the dining experience. While we were here, I ordered a drink off menu. This created some confusion (which I still feel bad about) but the staff learned the drink and made it for me.

Then later on, their expresso machine was out of order for a bit so they informed me it was going to be a bit of a wait. I did not mind. The staff were so nice and friendly that I would have waited an hour as to not bother them!

When we got up to leave, one of the staff apologized to us saying the service was not up to the standard he wanted it to be. This made me feel some sympathy for them all but also (since this was my second time being here) made me happy that they could recognize their own failings.

I don't hold anything against them and still had a great dining experience! This place is great. I just wanted to convey that even if the going gets rough there, the staff will do everything in their power to make you satisfied even if all they have at their disposal is a smile, friendly banter, and the ice water.

A nice place and the service was terrific and we had a nice quiet corner. The menu has a lot of unusual items on it and overall it is a pricey restaurant. The food was all good but overall I don't think it warranted the price which is why I didn't give it a better rating. If you are just looking for traditional menu items, this is not your place.

Plates were overpriced for the size and quality of the food. A couple things we ordered were quite good (e.g., duck bolognese, chocolate cake), but enough of them were duds (e.g., crab salad, chicken liver pate) that overall the cuisine was uninspired.

Ambiance was fine, service was good.

*Note: Valet parking is $15 BEFORE tip, ouch. Definite bummer.

Now overrated. Seated in some back area with giant video screen, industrial piping, not attractive. Chicken Liver "pate" was bland, no seasoning; whipped chicken livers in a small mason jar, very unappealing presentation. Not a fan of new small plates format.

The restaurant has gone to the new (not liked by me) trend to small plates. They used to have a full menu of entrees. The food is good, but the meal was not without a few bumps. My wife and I ordered and started drinking a bottle of red wine based on the lamb entree special we both ordered. The waitress then tells us that at 7:30 the kitchen ran out of the special. We now had to switch to a fish dinner. The manager did the right thing and took the bottle back so we could order a white wine, but we both felt that when the special was presented, the server should have been made aware that a small number of portions were left. I ordered the swordfish off the "Larger" portion list. It came with nothing! My wife had a crusted cod special. Both dishes were tasty, but not amazing. My soup of the day was very good, and my wife felt the chicken liver appetizer was very good and priced well. Desserts are somewhat non-traditional. Overall, it was a nice meal, definitely not what I was expecting from a restaurant of such high reputation.

Both the daily soup (leek and potato in a red wine reduction) and my main course of the Iberico pork loin were both delicious. The overall experience of great food and service over several years has been a constant for me at this restaurant.

After going to this restaurant many times over the years and being very satisfied, this was absolutely the worst experience. The menu was very limited with most items that weren't very appealing to me but the worst experience was getting there, having no parking available, and having to allow the Valet park my car. The fee was $15 which I felt was utterly outrageous. We were only in the restaurant for less that 1 1/2 hours and having to pay $15 was a bit much. Additionally, when you pay on your phone with a credit card, they also ask for a tip. Totally a turn off and this restaurant was removed from my go-to list. Overall very disappointing.

Each January 3 of us get together to start off the new year. This restaurant has an Oyster special during January, so it has been our spot for the past 3 years. Food is excellent and with the Oyster special and an option for a prix fixe lunch is a good choice price wise.

We ended up being one hour late for a reservation, the staff was very understanding and made us feel very comfortable. We hate being late and being "those people" as we ended up being the last seated table for the night. Our server, Matt, reassured us that there was no rush and we felt very comfortable and at ease and able to really enjoy the experience. His recommendations were great and all the food was delectable. We're honestly thinking about going back next weekend. The $1 Oysters in January is very appealing as well. We ordered additional items as well to try and touch every piece of the menu. Nothing disappointed. Price is reasonable. I'd go back as often as I could.

The service was incredible, the drinks were good and the food was delicious . Had the swordfish and couldn't have loved it more. The only thing is the portion sizes are a bit small and the prices a bit high. But with the quality of the food, service, and overall experience, I had no problem at all paying those prices! Well worth it!

The Frog and the Peach , while a worthwhile dining experience, did not quite live up to our expectations. The food was delicious, creative, and well priced, but dinner was missing that special something that makes a meal memorable. We all ordered the 3 course tasting menu which included a generous appetizer and main course and a dessert. We very much enjoyed the scallops in a sweet potato purée and the hanger steak and Black Sea bass were very well prepared. Dessert choices were limited to 2 and were not very creative. The wait staff was professional and attentive. I would recommend The Frog & the Peach because even though they did not "wow"us, the restaurant offers a creative menu , well priced food in a lovely setting.

After several suggestions from friends, we dined at Frog and Peach for New Year's Eve. We were greeted at the door and our coats were checked which was nice. We had a reservation and were seated right away in the greenhouse room. For a very bitter winter eve, we were chilly at dinner especially because we were seated right by the door. The room did have heat lamps, but on this unusually cold night, we were cool.

Although we sat down quickly and were poured water, no other servers attended our table for the first ten minutes. We finally had to ask for someone to take our drink order. After the initial mishap, the service was a bit more attentive but when paying for a fine restaurant you expect the best, which was not the case.

Dinner was decent, but the portions were incredibly small. For instance, my meal consisted of four medium-sized scallops and a dollop of sweet potato puree. I was still hungry after dinner. The food was decent but not enough for me to go back, especially after seeing the bill. I have had steak at well-known restaurants in New York City for less. Dessert was actually really delicious, I had a molten chocolate cake with delicious gelato. It was a shame to have to tip 18% of the 500 dollar bill for service that was mediocre, but we still did anyway. Unfortunately, we will not be back.

Went for my birthday. The first disappointment was that we were seated in front of the kitchen doors and near the bar where the wait staff stood and chatted —-not at all inviting. I ordered a drink which was watered down the appetizer was over seasoned as was my salad i sent it back. As for the meal I ordered Mac and cheese because by this time after driving an hour and looking forward to a lovely night as we dined here in the garden room about 2 years ago and it was amazing I was feeling angry at the placement of our table btw no one was in the place and the watered down drink poor salad I thought they can’t possibly mess up Mac and cheese well I was. Wrong It was like eating pure garlic couldn’t taste the cheese at all! Ugh. Place once was great but things have changed!!!! Do yourself a favor don’t go they don’t care. Even their parking lot had not been cleared of 3 inches of snow out front the walkway was not salted!!!!!!! We left saying to ourselves is this restaurant a tax write off for someone ??? Bad bad and bad. Glad I didn’t fall on my way in however I would of saved 150 dollars as it was the night before New Year’s Eve!!!

We were looking forward to a quiet and elegant dinner as we have for more than 20 years. Unfortunately, we were seated next to a very raucous holiday gathering replete with yelling, screaming and drinking games. I appealed to the manager but nothing could be done. So sad to see an institution sink to this level. Service was also spotty with long waits for simple beverages. Will not return and will certainly not recommend to anyone.

I've been coming to The Frog and The Peach for many years for business lunch or dinner and special occasions. They cater to a sophisticated palette and never disappoint. The prix fixe three-course lunch option is a cost-effective way to enjoy their menu. The heated patio room is a little oasis in the cold weather!
