My wife and I decided to give it a go, and we are so glad that we did.
We recommend getting a reservation as this is a popular spot and folks were being turned away, maybe as it was a Saturday evening, but a good idea anyway if you have time to plan ahead.
To begin, I had the mussel appetizer, she had the greens, and they were both beyond expectation.
We decided on the N.Y. Strip, hers as med-well and mine as medium(always).
They were both cooked just right and the flavors were exquisite.
Thank you for such a wonderfully “Gastric” experience.
We shall return.

Valentines date with my wife. The food was beyond delicious and very eloquently done. The Valentine Day 5 course dinner special was perfecto. Music and atmosphere was good. It was nice and warm which we enjoy. Table for 2 very nice and sweet waitress who was very attentive. . Always a nice experience at Frog and Turtle. Thank You!

Amazing meal!
I had a shepherds pie crepe that I am still dreaming about! Depth of taste was so so great.

Totally awesome!! The salads are very fresh with just the right amount of dressing tossed in. The meatloaf was pan fried on top of a bed of macaroni and cheese, placed on top a bed of spinach. My wife had the haddock and the potatoes were hand sliced and fried just right. Can't wait to go again and try another dish. Our server, Emily, I believe, was very nice and gave us the up and up,(food is cooked to order and may take a little extra time.) as this was our first time. The "side room" is a little less noisy, but overall, still very pleasant.

Jimmy always gives a great meal, and at a price that beats the Portland restaurants. Never had anything we didn't like, and never anything that failed to meet our expectations.

The Frog and Turtle is hands down my favorite brunch spot in Greater Portland. Home fries are on point. Eggs Benny is out of this world. Drinks are always delicious. Keep doing what you’re doing!
