We sat inside because of the temperature dropping that afternoon. The umbrellas covering the ceiling are really charming. And the food is great. The $19 before 6:00pm soup or salad and entree is an amazing deal.

The waiter was not friendly or informative. The ribeye, salad, canapés and dessert were poor to average. The bread, however, was fabulous!

Waiter, clearly didn’t know about wine and assumed we didn’t either, pushed a wine just to get us to pay more. Not a classy thing to do at a fine restaurant!

They missed my wife’s birthday recognition, but otherwise it was amazing! The special mushroom soup was fantastic, but the onion soup was just okay. My wife had the special lamb chop/lamb Wellington entree and she loved it. I had the game meat trio: venison, quail and rabbit. Wow to all three!!! Wines are numerous and most are only $35!! That’s a bargain! Service was excellent and the chef visited our table. It was terrific overall!

Service was very slow. Took about 20 minutes or so for anyone to take an order from us for drinks or food. The server made a few mistakes with the order as well and was unorganized as to how he took the order to begin with. Restaurant not flexible in allowing someone to get a Caesar's salad rather than house salad that came with entree unless they charge you for full salad (doesn't make a lot of sense).

Food was decent overall. Lamb was a little underwhelming given it was the house specialty. I had told restaurant in advance that it was my wife's bday but waiter didn't know and never mentioned anything until minutes after desserts were already at the table (he overheard us talking about it).

People would come by to ask us how the food was before we ever took a bite. I am new to the area and given the price of the meal, I expected much more.

Froggy's is our GO TO for celebrations, of all types. We love sitting in the bar area with a fireplace in winter or with the windows open during the Spring and Summer. Rodrique is the best waiter (and Cosmo maker) we've ever had.

We enjoyed a beautiful summer dinner at Froggy's. We ate in the front room, where the French doors were open to the street. It made for a beautiful setting. The service was efficient and personable and our waiter gave some good recommendations. The menu offered a lot of variety, and we enjoyed our dishes.

This place was amazing. The ambience was excellent and the food was a treat to the tastebuds. I can not recommend this restaurant enough.

The mushroom ravioli, artichokes, French Bordeaux and the wine dipped pear (dessert) completely won my heart.

Froggy’s is a wonderful French restaurant. The food service and ambiance are first rate. I give 5 stars rarely so this is my highest rating. One thing We especially enjoy is the chef mingling with the patrons.

It was a rainy night and we sat on the porch which was fun with the rain pounding down on the roof. The drinks were good and the service was fine. Our bread was stale and my meal was okay. My wife did not enjoy her fish. Froggy's can do better because we have had better meals there!

The Whitefish is better than any fish we've had at Mama's Fish House in Paia! Salad and bread came with the fish - also delicious.
Excellent service, without being rushed. Quiet enough to have a nice conversation with table companions. Use the free valet parking; much easier than trying to find a spot on the street. Can't wait to go back!

Food tasted like it was pre pared. Veal loin was tasteless, my wife’s pasta was hard as if re heated. Asked for extra sauce , had to ask x 3. Waiter was pre occupied with what appeared to be “celebrity “ tables. Treated like second class diners !!
