Having our second wedding anniversary after 20 years was very special to us and the meal, the wine, the whole night was amazing. We topped it off with a glass of wine as we going through a stunning lounge when leaving. We will definitely be returning.

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.

The great service started from a friendly confirmation call and kept going to the welcome were my wife and I were seated with a gorgeous view of the harbour. We were invited to sample a selection of lovely Frogmore Creek wine to accompany our splendid main courses. Desert was spectacular and the final bill was fitting for this calibre of fine dining restaurant. Well Done to everyone!

The best part would be the introduction to Frogmore Creek wines; all of their wines apart from the "museum" wines were available by the glass. I enjoy tasting wine while dinning.
The food was OK, it was disappointing they did not have oysters nor mussels, they cited it was not fresh. However, all throughout the island they had oysters and mussels. I had lamb shoulder which was well cooked but nothing to rave about.
I made the reservation late for a table for 2, the table was positioned at the entrance to the toilets. Not exactly the best place to enjoy the ambiance of the restaurant. They should partition off the entrance to the toilet and move the table away from the entrance, slightly off to the left would be best.

Jasmine provided brilliant customer service and is to be commended for her efforts. She made us very welcome and ensured nothing was too much trouble. Unfortunately one of our mains, the wallaby, was tough so she promptly delivered some potatoes and removed the wallaby from the account. Her wine knowledge was sound.
The dish of the evening was the mushroom tortellini - stunning !
Thank you for a lovely night

Beautiful dining experience. We enjoyed the new menu- especially the bird's nest dessert! Only let down was the coffee at the end. With everything else being so wonderful it was disappointing to have over-extracted coffee with no crema and frothy, foamy milk instead of velvety smooth.

We recently had our anniversary dinner here. We were given a table with a beautiful outlook and treated like royalty from the get go. I have a few intolerances and dietary requirements and after emailing prior to the date, the chef kindly made up my own entire 3 courses specifically to meet my dietary requirements. Usually it would be such a hassle for all involved when eating out so it was lovely to be looked after so well. The food was amazing and the prices were really reasonable. Our waitress (her name escapes me - she is from England) was absolutely fantastic. She looked after us all night and was lovely!!

Our guest from Brisbane enjoyed dinner with my husband and I at The Lounge Restaurant by Frogmore Creek which is now one of our favourite Hobart Restaurants. We only have a couple of favourites and like to visit them when we travel from the north west of the State. My husband and I had ceviche scallops for our entree, which melted in our mouths. We are returning just to have a dozen each. Our guest had the lamb for her main, my husband had the sirloin of wallaby and I had the duck each meal was excellent. We enjoyed the side serves of roast potatoes and broccolini. The three of us enjoyed the meals and promised to return to have desert at another time.

Decent food, but the service was abysmal. Upon entry, the greeters at the bar and in the restaurant fumbled repeatedly with locating our Open Table reservation, causing us to stand awkwardly while they checked and rechecked. Our server and her colleagues lacked any grace or desire able personality traits, as questions were avoided or answered rudely. The food, which was quite interesting, was simply plopped down in front of us. It was a disappointing experience for all four of us, who are seasoned world travelers.
