The Lounge Restaurant by Frogmore Creek
The Lounge Restaurant by Frogmore Creek is located at the base of one of the hottest hotel openings of 2017, Macq01 Hotel. The spaces are elevated over Kings Wharf with the views capturing an aspect of Hobart City and Mt Wellington that are unsurpassed.
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.
The sevice was first class and the meal was superb. I would recommend the restaurant looking for fine service and dining.
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.
lovely food, great service and good wine selection. great location.
An exceptional evening in all respects for a birthday celebration.
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.
Beautiful setting, fabulous food and all the staff are wonderful.
Fantastic experience; staff, ambience, food - all top notch. It is on the upper end of the price scale but the overall quality justifies the outlay, highly recommended.
A perfect location for a special dinner. Excellent service throughout the evening with imaginative choices on the menu.
Fantastic setting and wonderful service. Great choice on the menu. Good portion size and paired with excellent wine. This was my 5th visit for dinner and it is consistently exceptional. I highly recommend the experience to anyone wanting a fine dining experience in a comfortable and relaxing environment.
Beautiful meal for a treat - will definitely be back for more desserts!
Amazing staff who went all the way to put a candle on the dessert for my hubby’s bday!
Great food, good atmosphere and service. We will be back.
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!
Fantastic setting looks give the water, awesome food and the wine is amazing. Service great!
The food and service were great. We will definitely come back again.
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.
Excellent food and service with great views. Highly recommend for a great night out with friends and family to enjoy beautiful Tasmanian food and wine.
Not cheap but a wonderful experience for a special occasion.
Amazing food well presented and served. Wine seems limited to their own but they have good product of their own
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!
We absolutely love this restaurant. The food is amazing (has to be the best in Tassie!), the staff are very welcoming and knowledgeable. The wine their food is awesome too! Cannot rate highly enough.
Impeccable service and exquisite food. Great choice for my birthday dinner
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.
We had a very enjoyable meal at the lounge , The service was great very helpful and engaging staff. The food was very well prepared and flavourful . The restaurant is very nicely appointed highly recommend.
Frogmore Lounge was the perfect place for a Mother’s Day evening. Ambience, service and especially food were exceptional with desserts outstanding. Would recommend this place for all occasions
Great atmosphere, plenty of space, fantastically presented and wonderful food in a great waterfront setting. Definitely highly recommend this restaurant for any occasion.
Great spot for our anniversary dinner. Very central with a good selection of wine and food. I highly recommend getting a glass of the 2011 Chardonnay
From the online booking experience to the friendly staff and atmosphere to the quality of the food and immaculate presentation, nothing could be faulted.
Our dinner was elegantly presented and the flavours were amazing.
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!
we celebrated our 10 year anniversary at frogmore at could not fault it all.
The food was delicious and service amazing. Can't wait to go back.
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.
Lovely evening from start to finish. Food was amazing, presentation well worth the visit its own. Staff attentive without being annoying. Not a cheap night out, but very special.
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
