We went to Froggy's Saturday night, getting a reservation at the last moment. Overall, a very good meal. It is a cute bistro in HIGHWOOD. There is courtesy parking valet, which is helpful. My wife opted for sweetbreads and thought they were delicious. I had the grilled sliced duck with Caesar. The Caesar was good, and it was a very... More

We had our wedding party there. Alain was a superb host and we are both looking forward to this year's Six Nations - he for Les Bleus and I for Ireland. The food was wonderful and the atmosphere of friendliness and charm made our day. We love this place and will be back. Thank you Froggy's and may France and... More

Very personable and explained everything on the menu in full detail and made fantastic recommendations. The food was very good and the special... More

Though a big-wind from the north was picking up and the snow was begin'g to fall -again, we ventured out for dinner. Following a pleasant greeting in the entry foyer and after checking our coats we were led to a table in a pleasant corner where we could converse. Much to my delight there was no background music and an... More

I always enjoy my out of town visit to Froggy's. Wish I lived closer. Enjoyed the night with my adult granddaughter. We had the fixed menu- hit appetizer, sorbet, entree & dessert. I had a crab/lobster hot appetizer, broiled salmon & hazelnut mousse cake. I've never had a bad meal here. Prior to dinner we stopped at the Froggy bakery... More

Two of us for dinner. Gezpacho soup-delicious. Each of us had lobster. Cut up nicely so it was easy to eat. Finished with creme brulee. A great meat and great value for the quality of food and the service. We sat to one side so we could converse easily. Delightful evening,

The decor is very charming. The waiters are knowledgeable and friendly. They have a great early bird special till 6:30 pm that is a great deal. There are several menu changes with the seasons. Wonderful food and atmosphere.

I was in Chicago for a few days and we came across this French gem by accident and I'm still raving about it. The owner loves his job and is totally personable and helpful. He suggested a French rose wine that was fabulous - Juliette from Provence, I'm going to hunt it down. We both had the specials and they... More

Make sure you ask about the Lunch and Dinner specials. We came for lunch and enjoyed a magnificent mushroom soup along with a fish entrée! If food can melt in your mouth, this does! The relaxed surroundings and the steady just in time service makes for a fine experience. The desert medley completes the meal. After this, I'm coming back... More

Nothing to write home about. It was as if they don't really care about the food. There is no passion, no energy.
