Good dinner

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.

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

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

As a Brock Alumni, I loved this place when I lived here. When I took my husband a few years later I was glad to see nothing has really changed! The atmosphere was still nice and the food was still pretty good! The salad and bread that accompanies the meal is great value and I really liked my ravioli!

Just left Fresco's where I had an excellent lunch meeting with my work colleagues. The service was friendly and fast. The food was delicious as always. I had the Pasta special and salad. My peers really enjoyed their lunch choices. It was their first time there. I really love this place. Never disappointed! Thanks Fresco's!

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
