Nice restaurant. Very overpriced for what the food is. Parking is tough in the area and we had to park around the corner.
I went to Frog & the Peach on a Saturday evening with my boyfriend. The menu was not as expansive as I would have liked. The portions were also incredibly small, especially for the "larger" portions. My boyfriend is a bigger guy, so he left unsatisfied. The restaurant itself is very quaint and quiet. I highly recommend going for drinks at the bar. Overall, the experience and food were good, not great. Happy I went, but have no plans to go again.
We have been here several times and have never been disappointed. will certainly be back. Highly recommended
I was surprised that it wasn’t busier. Everything was really good!
Pricey, but a good experience. The bar can be crowded at night time.
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.
Great service, good food and good wine
Had a prefix lunch and a couple of glasses of wine. Excellent overall. Lives up to the reputation they have earned over years. In the past I’ve had dinner there several times. Overall excellent!
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.
Excellent as usual.
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.
Very enjoyable lunch.
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.
Incredible food and great service. We loved everything we ate, but the scallops and the steak in particular were amazing.
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.
Great food, but mediocre service: not in attentiveness but more in ‘restaurant maturity’ (not a great sense of pace). That said, I would recommend it
