Frolik Kitchen + Cocktails
Really nice patio, great drinks and great service!
This place has so much potential. Unfortunately, everything is overpriced, dated, and it was so loud, it was too difficult to hear each other speak.
If they had a more reasonably priced menu with more/better options and updated things, I can see this being a great place.
This restaurant doesn’t serve food between 10:30-11:30am.
We had made a reservation for 10:30am and informed of this issue a couple days before, but since it was a reservation for a wedding event, we ended up cancelling with most of our guests. FYI to others booking!
the cocktails were great. the food was bad and bland
We were there on a weekday to have drinks and catch with friends. We didn’t know that there would be live music but we didn’t mind when the stage was being set up. How bas could it be? Well.. it was really really not good and incredibly noisy. In the meantime our pasta was far from being al dente it was almost raw.
Service was quite slow, food came out quick but table visits were 1/10
Great dining experience. I was surprised by the 20% service charge. I was going to give my normal 20% tip but this caught me by surprise
Outdoor patio best part of experience. Food was bland and underwhelming.
We had a great dinner before our show. Would go back for a date night.
Nice and open patio area. The drinks and food were just ok meaning I wouldn’t intentionally come back for these items. Service was ok as well. Our waiter started off being attentive but after a few hours he disappeared. I actually had to leave my table to find him.
Service was horrible. Empty yet took a while to be seated. Took a while to get our order in. Food showed up before the drinks. Explains why they charge 20% gratuity automatically. Not worth it. Extra drink charged to bill that was not ordered. Waitress was nice but late with drinks that should have come first.
Frolik was fantastic! From the eclectic food, tacos, artichoke dip and lumpia. The rooftop buzzing atmosphere was super fun!
I brought my friend her for a quick girl’s night. Food is amazing! Drinks are delish but pricey. Order the chicken sandwich. It is oh so yummy! We sat in a very “loungey” and comfy space near the fireplace on the rooftop and enjoyed the view of downtown. Sunday night had a very small crowd of people, which was perfect for us.
Overpriced for the very small VIP section for Seattle Pride brunch. $26 drinks billed as “made for two”. Endless Absolut rainbow marketing. Room for about 10 people to view the parade at a time as long as people are generous enough to move. Not worth $108 per ticket.
Location is Very difficult to find. Once we finally did find the restaurant, we got off of the elevator and were again confused, as there was no staff to greet us and no signs telling us how to be seated. We walked into the restaurant, and approached the bar tender to inquire as to whom we check in with for our reservation. The bartender didn’t know, so he grabbed a server. This server told us to grab a table outside if we’d like, and she’ll ask her manager who we should check in with. They have a very cool outdoor rooftop patio but some very bleak tables with no umbrellas for sun protection. We decided to sit inside. Again, no one knew where to seat us. Manager looked annoyed. We finally got seated and our server was very attentive and warm, although busy waiting on every other table. We ordered cocktails which were sub-par and too expensive for what you receive. The food options are limited and again, sub-par in taste. The pasta dish I ordered was bland and the chicken was mediocre in quality. We would not recommend this place and will not go back again.
I went to Frolik two days ago for a friends 30th birthday celebration. My reservation was for 8pm which i had made over a week in advance with the note that this was for my friends birthday. The entire two hours we were there the restaurant had about two other tables occupied - it was dead in there. The waiter was nice, but the service was horrible.
When we arrived we ordered our drinks and meals right off with the intention of going out to the rooftop bar portion of the establishment. We received our drinks about 10 mins later (keep in mind it was dead in there). After that, our waiter disappeared and didn't show up until over an hour later saying our meals should be ready in about 10 mins...and then took our second drink order. This might not seem like a big deal, but we sat for over an hour waiting to be served and were completely ignored by all staff.
This is absolutely ridiculous considering there was no busy atmosphere to tend to.
We ended up asking for our bill right we our food arrived for fear that the waiter would vanish again. Thankfully for them they add on a 20% service fee onto the bill so their tips weren't affected by their lack of service. Clever. I would never come here again. Absolutely ridiculous level of service and completely ruined the birthday celebration.
Excellent location with plenty of tables and fun things to do. Pretty mediocre food for lunch - overpriced, fattening, unable to make substitutions, and limited. Probably would only go there for drinks in the future.
Our server was polite and friendly, but he kept us waiting too long.
Frustrating experience. Went with 5 friends for cocktails and dinner before a show. Made a reservation via OpenTable (which was confirmed via email), but when we arrived there was no table reserved for us and it was a "please seat yourself" situation. We had to wait outside for over half an hour before getting a table, and I'm not sure it would have happened without me reminding them that we were waiting. Cocktails were nice, but overpriced for the venue. We had to close our tab and pay for our drinks outside before we got seated inside and there was an error on one of the bills. Later, paying for our meals, there was a lot of confusion and wait to get those bills as well.
Two good things about this place: Razz, who ended up serving our table, was excellent! I believe he was working as a host or manager, but he made sure that we had our orders taken, drinks brought and checked in on us -- we barely saw our waitress. The food was also notably delicious and fairly priced. I had the Shaved Asparagus Salad and it was excellent.
I was charged twice and when I called to get it fixed they told me i’d have to take it up with my bank! The service and food were okay but not worth the price. The only thing that made it worth while were the drinks which were excellent.
The strawberry drink tasted like dust... so strange. Everything else was amazing and great service.
This is a great place for cocktails. We were celebrating a birthday, the weather was perfect to sit outside by the fireplace and the service was great. We ordered dinner, we weren't impressed. The tastiest item was the fried. My friend had the pasta which was beautiful but bland. I had the salmon, beautifully plated but came out cold and was disappointing. Our server didn't ask how the food was, she could tell by the picked at plates that it wasn't great. I would go back for cocktails then find dinner elsewhere.
The restaurant is attached to a hotel, so most of the diners were also hotel guests. But, the restaurant has an outdoor roof with ping pong and s’mores. So, it can be a fun place for all. The food was really good & the crispy treats were a lovely twist on such a nostalgic treat.
Surprisingly small entree portion, especially for price...$30+ for a small piece of fish. Food was good.
While the central location and rooftop patio were nice, what drove us away were the limited selection of overpriced food and poor service.
Very average food for higher price. Brussels sprouts were good so unless you like Brussels sprouts don’t go. Outside seating was nice, I’d go have drinks outside again but that’s it.
This was a horrible experience for myself and a friend of mine. We were hoping to have a nice Friday girls' night, and had made a reservation through OpenTable at Frolik for happy hour before our movie. We were exactly on time for our reservation, my friend arrived even a few minutes early. When she approached the hostess, she was told that their "reservation system was broken" and that our reservation could not be honored, but we could "wait in line" (mind you, the line went out the door because it was BEAUTIFUL outside - hence why we made a reservation!!). We presented our reservation confirmation email and still got denied and told to "walk around to find an open spot or wait in line." The hostess was so RUDE to us and not helpful at all. I have never been treated so horribly at a restaurant. The least she could have done was put us to the front of the line since we did indeed have a reservation and proof of one - how is it our fault that their system shut down? I've worked in restaurants and catering my entire life and have never seen such terrible customer service and rudeness from a restaurant. 100% will never be going there again - shame.
I made a reservation for Frolik for 5:15 last week. We arrived a bit after 5 and were told that there was no such thing— reservations did not start until after 6 and it was so busy there were no spots to stand and no way to get served for the next hour! I will never take any of my business guests there again, you can be sure. What an embarrassing mess that place is.
Not many vegetarian options and the available options were not that good.
The location was convenient because we stayed at this hotel. We wanted breakfast and we're drawn by
the ease. The location was very cute and looked to be well thought out in terms of place, decor, and ambiance. That being said, the food was mediocre at best. My poached eggs were hard boiled. I had stomach issues the entire day after eating it. My friends who came with me had similar complaints but adjusted to fit the food they received. Either bland, overcooked, or not done well. Overpriced for the quality you get. Would not recommend unless you really are feeling lazy or just want drinks because the coffee was great.
Ambiance is comical. Props to whomever the photographer is because I thought we were dining on a swanky rooftop until we walked in to what appears to be conference room by day and dive bar by night. Dated carpeted floors, ceiling tiles, heinous furniture, tacky decor and literally nothing but tables on the patio - no string lights, heaters or plants. Don't get me wrong, the food and service were fine, but this place is not what I was expecting. Lots of potential but left a lot to be desired.
Not sure why Open table was available for reservations, the restaurant was open-seating. This meant that we did not in fact a table waiting for us.
Excellent wait staff and delicious food.
Love the fireplace table!
Reservation was not under my name. Staff were not prepared for the 8 of us. They do well considering.
Maybe in the summer this would be a nice place to drink, but for dinner it’s not good.
We made a reservation because every website said this was the place to come to. It was empty when we arrived which seemed strange but we wanted to try it anyway. The service may have been the worst I’ve ever experienced. We sat down and it took about 15 min for someone to bring a menu. Outlet waiter knew nothing about the types of wine nor did he know answers to a few of our menu questions. After ordering a drink, it took him 25 min to bring it. After we were done eating we waited 35 min for our check which we had to ask another waiter for. After that, no one came back to take our check so we gave it to yet another waitress. The food was fine but I’d never go back after the terrible service
I'd recommend happy hour snacks - Brussels sprouts and salad were great. Otherwise gets too expensive, especially for vegetarian or non-red meat options. I'd suggest adding turkey burgers and nutburgers to menu.
Friendly and attentive service at our table.
The serving part was great, except we ordered a bottle wine and the server bring us the cheapest one but after tasting it he was ok by changing the bottle for the one we wanted from the beginning.
The food was very very salty and spicy. We couldn't return it back cause we already had to deal with a glass of champagne for which i was waiting for about 15 mins and i did not drink cause it didn'treally have a good taste, but it was in my bill and i paid for. Nevermind.
The other thing is the too loud music because of what i could not hear my friends i was dining with.
We had other expectations? but life happens.
Best service provided by EVAN!!!
I just wished there are more to choose from in their menu.
Great food and excellent cocktails. Seemed a little frantic and disorganized when we arrived and no one greets customers at door. Even with a reservation, staff seemed a little hesitant to seat us. But, we had a great time and food and specialty cocktails were wonderful. S mores with all handcrafted elements were beyond lucious! We will be back!
