Our dinner group of 6 dined at Fresco's this past Saturday; it was my second time having dinner there. Although their menu is small, it has a nice selection of appetizers and main dishes, we all enjoyed our meals. It is a bakery, so the dessert case is full of wonderful delights to enjoy after dinner or to take home.... More

We've dined at this restaurant for years and have always enjoyed the food but our most recent meal was a bit off. We ordered the Duck lettuce wraps which were good but nothing special. I had the carrot coconut soup which was good but under-seasoned - it definitely needed some salt. I ordered the bacon-wrapped filet (I ordered mine medium)... More

I visited for brunch and had a pretty good time. Service and food were good, the prices were fair and I enjoyed everything I ordered. I went during brunch time on a Sunday There were two men inside playing live music. I was sat right next to them which made holding a conversation uncomfortable. I know some people enjoy that,...

For our anniversary we went to this restaurant. The quality of the food was very good and the price was reasonable. Service was a bit slow at times. However, the staff was ver friendly and we were given free desert for our inconvenience.

Having lived in Lakeland since early 1990's, I can say there have been many privately owned restaurants that have excelled, but still due to the local addiction to chains failed. I sure hope that's not the case here. Wife had heard lots of good things, but both were shocked not only by the originality & quality of food, but the... More

For Lunch, get the blue plate special. A great deal and upgrade the side to Mac n cheese; they have really good MnC. For after 5, they have a huge beer list.

We overnighted in Lakeland while visiting Florida Southern College's "Child of the Sun" campus to tour the largest collection of Frank Lloyd Wright buildings in the world. On our way out of town on an early Sunday afternoon we dined at Fresco's for brunch. Its hometown casual ambiance seemed like the perfect setting for a relaxed meal before our road... More

Great location, friendly staff, tacky cheese plate. My date and I thought we would relax with a nice bottle of wine and a cheese plate. Wine selection average but priced accordingly. Cheese plate was laughable, however, I am particular about cheese plates. No choice in cheese selection was given. It arrived with 3 uncut blocks, a Cheddar,Blue, and Mozzarella. Mozz... More
