Fresco's is an excellent location to hang out among friends. It has a nice section by the bar and a large dining room. I definitely prefer the tables close to the bar , besides the patio located parallel to the restaurant. One of the nicest things about this place is the music. Tapas night on weekdays is a great idea... More

Came here with my girlfriend in July. I did really enjoy the food and atmosphere here. It's nice for a date, or something casual. I was very full leaving and the calamari is good as well. It is a little expensive however.

Went in for lunch with a client and we both tried a salad from the new salad menu. I ordered the sweet chili salmon salad and my client ordered the santorini salad. Both were a good size and we enjoyed them very much. We licked the bowls. And we were full. Service was fast and friendly and the manager always... More

The food here was delicious. We came for dinner and everything we ordered was really good. The waitress told us they do Tapas 2 nights a week so we went back the following night for the Tapas and they were great also. The Tapas are popular so you may need to wait for a table or eat at the bar... More

Our family (we have 3 school aged children) loves the Sunday brunch at Fresco's. The decor is bright and cheery. Each staff person we have interacted with at this restaurant has been polite, friendly and helpful. They have a wide variety of foods including a personalized pasta station. They have many kid-friendly choices on their buffet. We like the quality... More

Having worked in service industry for most of my life nothing says we don't care than a waitress who takes your order drops off your food and you never see again! My daughter had pasta and was looking for grated cheese, no server to be found, our empty glasses sat through the meal and finally had to flag someone down... More

This is a great place for a date. A date where you just need a lone time with no interruptions of televisions, or any screens showing something in the background. The restaurant is clean, and the food is good and relatively affordable. I would recommend this place.

Everyone at work chose Fresco’s as the choice for a colleague’s retirement luncheon. There were about 20 of us in our party. Due to the fact that we were able to pre-order a few weeks in advance, our meals were ready soon after we arrived. The service was quick! I had the Gyro Wrap and a house salad, with the... More
