Our social meetup group came here for dinner on the way back from a day in the Niagara region, and I was not disappointed. We were assigned a very private, quiet dining room for our group of around 50 for our ten course Italian dinner. All of the courses were very tasty and the staff were very efficient and friendly....

We ate at Fresco's for the Sunday brunch buffet and were very pleased with the quality of the food selections. The service was good, and they even brought out tiramisu with a sparkler for birthdays we were celebrating. Excellent Eggs Benedict, tasty pasta to order, and a wide assortment of other good foods. Best of all was the desert bar,... More

Wonderful meals (Sunday Brunch and Friday dinner). My kids loved this place! The menu, food quality and service were outstanding. The dessert is to die for! On our trip to Niagara and Toronto, this was my kids consensus favorite.

Had a great business lunch at Frescos. I got the arugula and apple salad with chicken on it and it was great. Good portion size to fill you up and very tasteful. I will be back for the salad. Server was good and attentive.

Very uninspiring tapas. Crab cake served with an ordinary tomato sauce. Poor pairing. Salad OK, slider OK, but that would be hard to mess up.

A few of their finger foods are delicious such as their shrimp and mushrooms but their pizza was almost inedible. Some of the party took a bight and got rid of the rest.

I usually love this place. Food is always good. But was totally and utterly grossed out by this experience. The server was talking to guests behind the bar while playing with her hair AND BARE FEET. I'm sorry but this is totally unacceptable. Then she takes our order and gets it totally wrong! Then wouldn't even come near us the... More

This was my third or fourth visit to Fresco's, but it was by far the least pleasant. The visits were, however, several years apart, so perhaps the restaurant has gone downhill somewhat. (There is not a lot to choose from in St. Catharines.) On previous occasions I've had lunch or dinner. This time, however, we weren't very hungry, and simply... More

Went for dinner last week. Service was slow. Ordered the Zucchini Parm, It arrived with 3 slices of breaded zucchini with a slice of mozzarella cheese placed over the zucchini, not melted. Over cooked spaghetti & too salty tomato sauce. Basically paid 15. for overcooked pasta. Couldn't eat it all. Friend ordered Seafood Cataplana. It was Terrible. Couldn't eat it... More
