We had the artichoke dip and the flavor was great. My companion is a bartender- and she and I both truly enjoyed the rye old fashioned.

The unfortunate part of the experience was the food. Three of the four of us ordered the New York strip dinner. Only one of the steaks came out prepared correctly. The waiter did not inquire how the meal was or check back aside from delivering the bill. This is unfortunate because it was an otherwise very nice evening. The cocktails were prepared well and the wine was very good. The discussion within the table was that because the restaurant implemented a 20% service charge, there is no longer a drive to ensure the dining experience was excellent or at least worth the value of the meal. Underwhelming service and food will be the cause of this being the last trip to WA Frost.

The steak was tough and overdone and the pasta was soggy and cold . We might try it for lunch on the patio next summer.

Such a unique, warm ambience. Of course, it's not quite the same at covid-level capacity, reduced hours, and a slimmed-down menu. But the staff was welcoming and the smaller crowd had its advantages. Can't wait till the restaurant is back at full speed.

The 5 entrees were less than exciting.. we asked for the cheese platter and got the charcuterie board. Server seemed distracted... I would hate to see WA Frost not make it... and I'm certain the patio is your life-line, in season.. but inside... it needs help in every category.

I love WA Frost and consider it a go to restaurant for a nice evening out. I had been there for dinner just a few nights before and had assumed we’d be able to sit out on the patio with the heaters. There was nothing on the website to indicate otherwise. I wanted to take my daughter out for a nice dinner on the patio. When we arrived the patio was dark and closed. We checked in at the front table and I explained I had hoped we could sit outside. We ordered takeout. The hostess was extremely gracious, thoughtful and kind. We ate on the patio in the dark. It was a less than enjoyable experience.

The food was fantastic! We were a bit surprised at the slower service since we were 1 of 2 tables inside. The outside was a bit busy though and our server was very polite. The host was helpful, but by no means warm/friendly. We love the atmosphere and overall everyone had a great time! It was socially distanced, clean and everyone was wearing a mask.

They're passionate about their safety measures and we found it dampened the service (not even remotely happy to see us for our special occasion) and atmosphere so we left before ordering. Of course their patio is second to none but that time of year is winding down.

The tables were spaced over 6 feet apart so we felt very safe. The food was delicious and we enjoyed a charcuterie platter, a cheese platter and three entrees. My husband had a strip steak, my son chose a BLT sandwich, and I had salmon with creamy quinoa and couscous. We had a good selection of wine and beer. Our server was fantastic. She was very attentive and helpful and added to the enjoyment of the evening.

In an environment where you'd expect restaurants to be putting their best foot forward to maintain patronage, they fell extremely short. With reservations, it took 15 minutes to get us seated. After watching staff continuously pass by our table, it took another 15 minutes to even put a drink order in. At that point, it was the host who asked as we had not yet been inquired upon. We then proceeded to put in our full order as the writing was on the wall. After ordering off of a very limited menu, the food delivered was about on par with Piada italian street food. Not to say that is bad, but not what you or we would expect from this establishment - and for those prices. Overall, the staff was complacent, the food mediocre and overall experience was poor. I'm sorry to say that WA Frost is no longer on our list of places to go in St Paul.

Limited menu - the common side (creamy quinoa/couscous with zucchini) provided with both entrees (chicken & Salmon) was just soso. Service was excellent and ambiance of course wonderful. Dessert was brought home to svaor wa hile watching a political debate.

I also agreed to receive text message and email updates from the restaurants about my reservations. When we arrived, it was no longer raining but no one was on the patio. We found a server who explained they were no longer seating customers on the patio and that they gave up doing that earlier in the afternoon due to earlier rain showers and thunderstorms. I did not receive any call, email, or text notification about this. The server still found a spot for us inside that was farther away from other guests to help maintain physical distancing and we otherwise had a pleasant evening. We appreciated the staff seating us in a sparsely-populated part of the restaurant to help us maintain physical distancing from other guests, but updates in advance of our reservation about the patio's unavailability would have been valuable.

Chicken caprese salad was bland and strangely tasted like hamburger fat. French fries were soggy. Not at all up to par with my past experiences. Servers were wonderful, though!

Service was poor as the the hostess/server was not friendly/warm and had to ask multiple times for drinks. Not the best communications or follow up. Tip was built in otherwise I would have adjusted it down. Great place to eat but second time I had poor service ( other was last summer).

Servers bring the food and drink to each table. The service was terribly slow including a cocktail that never showed up but we had to track down a server to process a refund since we'd already paid for it. The quality and taste of the food was fair. Not what we expected from this restaurant and it's unfortunate that we won't consider going back to the restaurant again.

Wish the host had told us that you don’t get a server and how to order and where to find the menu, but instead just sat us and left. After looking around and seeing a QR code we figured it out, but it wasn’t very clear. So in case the host doesn’t tell you anything - Because of COVID you actually order off your phone and need to pay or open a tab with a $150 pre-approval on your card through the phone. You can close it every time if you don’t want the pre-approval, but then you are re-typing info in over and over again. Make sure to have your phone charged up, mine almost died. If the host had been friendlier and informative this would have been 5 stars all around.

The food is fine but the limited menu limits how often I would go. More options more visits:-)

Although the menu is very paired down, it offers fresh options for every diet type. I love WA and will return time and again - looking forward to the good old days.

Especially the ability to reserve a patio table vs indoors. We have enjoyed this restaurant pre-COVID and the same great quality of food and ambiance remain. We had a lovely appetizer and burgers all ordered via our smartphone and everything arrived promptly.

                                                                                                                  We had a reservation but still had to wait about 10 minutes for a table. They are using an app called Presto for ordering both food and drinks. There is very little contact with wait staff (which is both good and bad). Presto places a $150 hold on your CC just about every time you order thru the app. We ordered 3 times: Drinks, appetizers; and main course, so the Presto app placed 3 - $150 hold on my CC. That wasn't a big problem for me, but it may be for some. The main problem I had was that I ordered an expense Barton's whiskey using the Presto app (btw - they charge an extra $2.50 for on the rocks), and then the bar waitress came out and told me they were out of the Barton's whiskey. She asked if I'd like something else and so I just ordered a Manhattan, which is considerably less expense. The wait staff failed or were unable to make a price adjustment, so I was stuck paying for the more expensive whiskey. There is no tipping, but there is a flat 20% service charge. My other complaint was that our dirty dishes were left to pile up and were not cleared away in a timely fashion. I frequently tip greater than 20%, but in this case 15% would have ben generous.
