We recommend starting with a glass of wine, a bowl of French Onion Soup or escargot appetizer, and then move on to our seasonal seafood mains, fresh pastas or our classic steak and frits. Froggy’s diverse menu is geared to satisfy seafood aficionados, vegetarians and all omnivores alike. Always fresh, always French and always a fantastic dining experience.
Located in Highwood, nestled in between Highland Park and Lake Forest, come dine with us to see why Froggy’s is known as North Shore’s hidden gem.
Cordial, unassuming quality dining. Great place to celebrate my birthday!
Delicious, lobster bisque was one of the best I've had. We had veal and fish of the day, both excellent. Desserts were hazelnut/choc mouse cake and bread pudding, also did not disappoint. Froggy's has an eclectic decor and elegant vibe. Service was top notch!
Excellent as usual!
Love Froggy’s! I’ve been going here for years and it’s one of my favorite spots. Just celebrated my birthday dinner there.
Love Froggys!! Great food and such wonderful people!!
We went for a special menu we saw advertised in the local paper. When we were seated we were brought menus but there was nothing about the special that enticed us into coming. When inquiring the waiter said didn’t we know what was on it? After saying we weren’t sure he reluctantly told us the choices. I ordered soft shell crab and they were the smallest crabs I have ever encountered in a restaurant. The entire meal, with the exception of the dessert was mediocre. Although we have been there before we will not be returning.
Have been coming for years. Glad to see some new things on the menu.
Everything was well done - seating, service, food.
Excellent food and service. The chef came out to greet all diners. Very nice experience for my son’s 18th birthday.
Excellent in all ways. Great service and very helpful and fun staff which made for a wonderful lunch.
We had a wonderful anniversary dinner in a beautiful space. The food was tasty and beautifully prepared.
Wonderful meal and terrific service. We had a delightful evening. Well worth the drive.
It was fine...but we thought it would be special.
I ordered the beef Wellington ... medium. I was expecting a piece of beef encased in patae and pastry. Instead it was a slice of beef with some course and some pastry. It was well done. Disappointing
Our waiter was excellent.
The tables are a little too close.
Mother’s Day dinner was a great choice of selections and the service was outstanding.
excellent restaurant,my favorite place to eat in lake county .Never been dissappointed,please tell the team they are the best...
We have been customers of Froggy’s for many years and are always pleased with everything. Our favorite waiter is Victor who is always very efficient, warm and gracious. A wonderful employee.
We have entertained guest at Froggy’s many time and will continue to do so in the future.
Had not visited in a while but still as great as i remember. Food was wonderfule and the service excellent. nice selection of unusual menu items including game meats like rabbit, venison and wild boar. Delicious. And the bread pudding still as great as i remembered. will start going more often.
Mushroom soup was outstanding. Highly recommend it. Foie Gras very good. Crab cakes had cheese which my husband did not care for. Otherwise, food delicious and generous portions. No room for dessert. Service excellent, wait staff very attentive. Definitely going back.
Terrific food and service! Chef came out and wanted to know how everything was. Only recommendation is decor seems to be dated and might be time for refresh. But saying we sat in dining room but the porch was busy and up to date and bright and cheery.
My fish was ok, but I expect much better. Last time I was about 5 years ago and I like, maybe you change chief cook. Duck was horrible, impossible to chew. In all French restaurants, even not French in down town duck is delicious, my son often take duck, when this time he doesn’t want to eat , I was surprised, I want to try, was difficult to cut ..., I slice ... it’s was horrible. In Taverna Libertyville duck different, but taste, they did cook very well .
The lobster bisque was outstanding, and so was the chef's meat creation and the lobster. The crab cake was very good, and so was the chef's dessert selection. The chocolate selection was the only thing that I had even minor complaints about. It was one-dimensional.
Recently dined here for our 5 year wedding anniversary. Our requested table was not available which was ok but would have been nice if hostess or wait staff acknowledged our special occasion since we had noted it at time or reservation. Service was also slow despite the restaurant not being busy. Luckily food was excellent which made up for it.
Our second trip for a very special anniversary dinner. This place is a gem. Wonderful environment and spectacular food. Highly recommend.
The food was very disappointing. Mussels lacked a flavorful sauce. Salmon was over cooked and skimpy on sauce. Pate appetizer contained 6 varieties which were generally dry and tasteless. Only the bread pudding dessert shined.
It was totally unexpected - a fabulous lunch before a stressful business afternoon. The food was amazing, the service lovely and the environment quiet and peaceful! As good or better than any NYC great French restaurants! And authentic to boot!
This restaurant is "tired". The ceiling covered with upside down umbrellas might work if there was any semblance of a theme but there isn't one and I wonder what's trapped in them. The waiter was glib and amusing, the wine was okay but the dishes were lackluster and uninspired. Okay...the desert was quite nice.
Froggy’s is a consistently marvelous restaurant! The rack of lamb and duck were both delicious as was the bread pudding with carmel sauce for dessert! Our server was delightful!. It is a great restaurant for a celebration!
The food is always good.
Ambiance intimate and lovely.
We go there every year for our anniversary, and this year we had the same fantastic server as last year-- and he remembered us as we had remembered him! We had the trio of fish and the wild game plate, and they were both magnificent, with flavors we had never tasted before. Nor had we ever enjoyed such large oysters, perfectly prepared.
food was excellent. (didn't have wine however since I was working)
Another wonderful experience at Froggy’s. The host started with accommodating our seating preference. The waiter helped with a wonderful French wine recommendation. The foie gras appetizer was so delicious we ordered a second. The wild game, duck and veal specialties are our favorites. Chef Terry even stopped over to say Hi.
Great place, will go back. The staff was very attentive. The food was excellent. No rush we where the last group to leave.
Food was wonderful.
We hadn’t been here for dinner in a while, but found it absolutely delightful! Our seating preference was accommodated. The French wine selection was nice. The Foie Gras appetizer was so delicious that we ordered a second. The duck and veal are always favorites. We’ll be back!
Froggy's still provides a gastronomic delight with quality service and atmosphere. We will always be back.
Always a delight! Delicious, refreshing, not heavy & good wine! Just heaven!
While I grew up in Highland Park, I had never attended Froggy's. It is now my top restaurant pick. The food, the service, the ambience, and the gorgeous room and fantastic complete and creative menu were enticing. Every appetizer and entree were wonderful as were the desserts. No one in my party of 6 ordered the same items. What a find. I am embarrassed that this was my first exposure to Froggy's. I am looking forward to a return visit soon!
The choices on the menu were fabulous. Our meals - chicken special and steak special were served perfectly cooked with an amazing mushroom sauce. The vegetables were savory and artfully placed on the plates. Even the butter was a design. We splurged on the bread pudding, the chocolate cake and the lemon cream brulee which were absolutely delicious. We came for the special pris fix dinner and enjoyed it thoroughly. This is a restaurant not to miss - for lunch or dinner. The service was excellent and our waiter cheerfully answered all our questions. We shall return!!! Oh yes, the delightful umbrella room and the soft french music and pictures combined with the excellent French cooking was five star.
