Fantastic location by the water. Staff were great - really paying attention to what you needed. The food was good (not great, but good) and SO beautifully presented. That alone is worth going to see and eat. The desserts in particular were super creative. And the fried potatoes were amazing if you like an occasstional deep fried something. The only downside for us was that the four person table we were at was a bit wide for relaxed conversation between the four of us across the table, especially as the restaurant filled up and got noisy. I would work on the size of the square tables (as opposed to the round ones for 4 that looked much more manageable).

Wonderful views of the harbour. Great service and atmosphere. Really enjoyed the Salmon green curry with a glass of the 20 degrees south Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot. The desserts in particular were spectacular, the Fish Bowl was a stand out in presentation and taste.

My main course (chicken) was overcooked and hence, very dry. The chicken was on the bone, and therefore quite hard to devour with a knife and fork and this establishment is too classy to be using your fingers. All other meals were quite nice, but also quite small for the exorbitant price. We did not order dessert, so I can't comment on this. The chairs were very comfortable, but the table was too wide, so we were seated quite far from our guests which made conversation difficult. The wait staff were helpful and polite.

Superb as always, will definitely return. We usually dine at the Cambridge Restaurant, so glad to see the same great quality, flair and ingenuity in these dishes

As a wine club member household and regular diners at both the Cambridge and Lounge restaurants was less outstanding than usual - not sure what the big difference was other than a couple of the dishes were not of the same standard to our palate as we experienced previously. All in all the service was great - as usual as were the wines - just a little disappointing after eating at the Cambridge restaurant a couple of weeks ago :-)

Service fantastic, the waitress was lovely let me smell a liqueur i was not familar with to see if i wanted to try it, helped me pick one i would like. Crab entree was divine, chicken yummy and dessert was divine. Second time we have been here and as before delicious. Fantastiv views over the water and fantastic service, from walking in the door, to table service.

The Lounge Restaurant by Frogmore Creek was a fabulous choice to celebrate a friend's birthday after travelling all the way from Sydney to do it. The service was impeccable and so compassionate when one of our number became unwell and needed a taxi home. Poor girl didnt even get to sip the champagne! The food was exquisite! So delicious and so imaginatively presented. I loved the tiny servings of Yorkshire puddings, compressed apple, red cabbage and potato rosti that accompanied the pork belly which itself was so crunchy and delectable. And the desserts: white chocolate fish in the fish pond, chocolate pieces of eight in the buried treasure. Such fun. If visiting Hobart this restaurant is an absolute must. The food is sensational, the service sublime and the cost amazingly reasonable. Overall, a perfect way to celebrate a milestone birthday as it was such a memorable experience.

Excellent location with excellent food and excellent wine and excellent service - a most excellent experience that could be summed up with one word....awesome (you were expecting "excellent" weren't you). Good to this place for dinner and then go to the vineyard for lunch - you won't be disappointed.

Spectacular desert islands surrounded by delicious crumb sands and tasty jus with an volcano mount of lamb. Then a fish bowl to die for.

We think it was our best meal ever, still talking about it. Delicate flavours around superbly cooked produce. Touch of Heston as in what you think you are eating is presented in a way that it looks like something else. Brilliant. Could have licked the bowls clean!

A great addition to Hobart already buzzing dining scene, Frogmore strengths are its exceptional and creative food served by an attentive team in a luxurious and conformable décor. I already recommended it to all my foodie friends - the only things that could be improved is the wine list which features mostly their own wines, and by all means these are very good but why limiting that experience to just a hand full of wines when a lot more could be done there. However well done!

Best dinner we’ve ever had! Staff were attentive and polite. Food was staggered perfectly with no point where we were thinking “where’s our food”. Drinks were excellent including their craft beer. Perfect ambience and excellent experience for couples at the sofa booth. Only pointer would be if the table fit the booth better (an oval or square table) it would’ve been even more comfortable. Would recommend to anyone wanting an explosion of flavor.

My wife and I had an absolutely marvellous meal at the Lounge this week. The food was exquisite, the atmosphere very relaxing and romantic, and the staff were both friendly and professional.

I can't wait to go back and would recommend The Lounge Restaurant very highly to anyone looking for a fine dining opportunity on the waterfront.
