The Frog and the Peach Ratings and Reviews
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!
It was only lunch, so I wasn't expecting much, but the food managed to disappoint. The fried sea bass sandwich was completely undistinguished. The pulled duck was dry. And the gnocchi could be a lot better in any good Italian place. The octopus was good but the serving was tiny. Besides the food, everything was fine.
We sat in the green room and it was uncomfortably warm. The chairs were plastic and flimsy and not comfortable to stay seated in.
The food was OK, not worth the price. the butternut squash soup was good and lobster was hearty but flavor was just okay. My BF said the NY strip was good and scallops as well.
I did not find anything there especially delicious considering the price. Didn't hate it but didn't love it.
Food is always good here. Our table was next to the servers station and it was a bit noisy. Wedge salad, soup and oysters were great as was dessert (both chocolate), entrees were ok. Strip steaks were fatty and pork a but under done. Not enough to complain about though, just not 5 star.
Food is very creative, and usually very good. Wines are good and reasonably priced.
This time I had a pheasant special prepared Mexican style that was off the bone, and stuffed. It was awful. Tons of gristle and only mediocre in flavor. If I hadn't been at a business meal I would have sent it back.
We had a wonderful meal at The Frog and the Peach. The food was beautifully presented and very interesting and the service was excellent. We had two cocktails, a beer two appetizers and two small plates and a shared desert for $107. Not cheap but a good value, our server "Clementi" was excellent. The food was unique, but not over the top. The carrot cake was beautiful to look at and delicious to eat. I'd also recommend cauliflower almond puree appetizer. We were originally seated upstairs in a back room that was too loud, we requested and were moved to a quieter table also on the second floor. I had to ask several times for olive oil for my bread, but beside this, the service was excellent. I would recommend it for a date night or special occasion.
Very enjoyable evening at the Frog and Peach. Six of us were seated right on time at a table that was the perfect size for conversation. My drink was prepared expertly. The wine list is quite extensive, with reasonable prices. Serving staff were well-trained and helpful. Three of us had the Asian pear salad -- pretty in appearance and very tasty. For main courses, the "small plates" were actually more substantial that we expected....the scallops and hanger steak were all we would have wanted for a main course and were priced quite reasonably, so it wasn't completely necessary for us to have ordered other small plates in addition, but we did anyway and they were good. We didn't opt for dessert, so no comments there. If we return, we will skip the valet parking (under-staffed, slow and over-priced at $15) and just look for a spot on the street.
The menu selections were out of the ordinary, and each meal was prepared to perfection. The service was attentive but did not interfere with the table conversations. We were not rushed through our meal. The meal was not inexpensive, but well worth the price. The only complaint was the ability to find a parking spot - the valet parking was confusing, but there is a parking garage a short distance from the restaurant.
The main course is bad for everyone, I had fish but it tasted not fresh, my husband had lamp, it just tasted ok. my friend had beef, she could barely cut it into slices, it was so hard. However the appetizers are good, compared with main course.
Our overal experience in Frog and the peach was a good one. The food was reasonably priced, and the taste was fine. My only complain is about the service. We were celebrating a birthday party, and in my reservation I requested them to write a "Happy Birthday" Message on the dessert plate. I usually request such a thing when we celebrate a birthday in a restaurant. Since I didn't receive any reply from the restaurant, I supposed they'll do it. But they didn't! I guess if they can not meet the guests' expectations, they should have at least let me know before the party.
I have always been a big fan of F&TP, but was disappointed to find they had changed formats to primarily a small plate menu. While they have a few items that are more traditional portions, but bulk of the menu is now small plates. This can be fun, but I preferred the previous menu. Service and the wine list continue to be excellent.
I have been to the Frog and Peach many times over many years for business and special occasions. It remains on of the best spots in Central NJ. The menu is creative, broad and tasty, and uniformly well prepared and presented. The service is professional without being stuffy. Pre-fix lunch at $25 is a special value, including two courses and glass of wine. There are some very good wines at good prices.
We were asked st least five times by several different waiters if we were ready for dessert. This was all within a matter of minutes and each time we said no, we hadn't looked at the menu. The restaurant was mostly empty so they weren't trying to get us out because they needed the table. It was really annoying. The waiters should coordinate to care for the patrons instead of being overzealous.
