This is one of the many classy restaurants in Saint Paul. Beautiful old charm. Great patio and happy hour. The food is pricey but well worth the experience and outstanding service Can't ever go wrong with entertaining here.

We sometimes go inside for a special occasions- parents visiting, anniversary, but more often just grab a seat on the outdoor patio and take in the MN summer! Indoors is beautiful and a bit "upscale" with lovely artwork, fireplaces, ambient lighting...while the patio is less formal with tables, couches, even seats at the bar. We eat vegetarian/vegan and there are... More

Sat in the bar lounge with the kids while we waited to meet friends at another restaurant. We had a glass of wine, two beers, a soda and basket of fries for $42. A bit steep. In observing other tables, they ordered a flight of wine (taste of three) for a bargain price of $12. I will do that next... More

Cozy atmosphere in 1920s refreshed building. Outstanding food, wide array of choices, has bar and good wine list. In Winter enjoy the fireplace. In Summer, W> A> Frost has a very large patio that is very comfortable. One of our top choices.

I came here on a Friday evening, quickly reserving two for 9pm to get drinks and a dessert. We saw the somewhat high prices on a few appetizers and decided that we didn't want to share anything more than the cheese plate and a dessert. We ordered three kinds of cheese and one of them was not well received by... More

We brought a group of ten to W.A. Frost last night to celebrate a special occasion for our daughter. Our group included several out-of-town guests. We booked the reservation about a month in advance. We arrived at the restaurant shortly before our 8:00 p.m. reservation. We were asked to wait in the bar because the group ahead of us was... More

I took my family here on a Tuesday evening. We were early for dinner (4:45pm) but the bar staff was accommodating. The hostess came to get us in the bar when the dining room opened and moved our bar tab to the dining room. The service was attentive, knowledgable about the menus, specials, food, and wine menu. When we wanted... More

But sometime not, depending on season and chance. Best bet--winter, especially for lunch. But I can't resist the patio in summer, even with the sometimes uneven service, inartfiully mixed drinks, and less than stellar food prep.
