Wonderful rehearsal party

We participated in a wedding rehearsal party on Feb. 12, 2015 at Fresco's. The food was amazing and the service was superior. Everything was perfect!

We were just there for supper and the vegetable mix of carrots, broccoli, peppers and green beans were completely raw/hard. They need to be at least cooked to be tender crisp to enjoy. If you are gluten free you have to ask server, because nowhere in the description did it say the stuffed chicken breast was breaded. Would have asked... More

Let me first say I used to rave about how great this place was. A year ago I went to fresco and notice there being stingy on there portion size but the food was still great quality. I went with family for Christmas this year and what a disaster we all asked for medium rare not well done and we... More

I love the feel and look of this restaurant. In with my mother for lunch today, it was her birthday. She picked Frescos. We were sat promptly and were greeted by a very nice waitress. We had Crab Dumplings and calamari for a appetizer. Next course was Creamy Chicken Fettuccine and Chicken Sausage Penne, plus it includes a salad. Value!... More

Monday, do the search, check menus, read reviews. Narrowed down to five, but one stands out. Fresco's has Tapas night. I know from past visits that the food is decent, and the staff are outstanding. What better way to enjoy the best a place has to offer? Between the two of us, we covered 12+ dishes. Every single one was... More

We went on the 30th so it was a Tuesday. We had a big group with us and had originally intended to go to Kesley's by the Pen Centre but failed to make reservations. So we chose Frescos which wasn't a chain owned franchise. There were 10 of us and fortunately they got seat us swiftly. The server was prompt.... More

My family came down from Toronto and they hear of Fresco's so they wanted to try it out. Service was very good but not so much with the food. We ordered steaks and they were all overdone. My sister wanted hers medium-rare so they took her plate away. Another steak came by and it was rare. We were not impressed... More
