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.

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.

Oh my goodness, GREAT dinner! I had the Ocean Trout and it was fabulous. Others in our party had the Crispy Duck, Roasted Cauliflower and Penne. All were delicious and our desserts were also perfect. The atmosphere at WA Frost is romantic, cozy, old world...More

Went here as part of a party of 20 where we had dinner in an amazing private room. The food and service was exceptional. The historic character and ambience of the restaurant made the visit particularly memorable.
