Good food and service

We were here for a team dinner, a group of around 20 people. Considering the size of the group it was very impressive how everything came pretty much in the same time, we did not have to wait for each other or end up with cold food. Service was excellent and the food was very good. One of us... read more

This is in a convenient location be in the Promenade shopping area in Bolingbrook. They have a nice fireplace with large yet inviting dining area. The service is excellent, very attentive, and always clearing used dishes off the table. This is important for me personally because service to me, is just as important as the quality of food at any... More

The title says it all. I decided to celebrate my birthday at Francesca's with my family so I can order my favorite frutti de mare. I've never had a problem here til now. We were there at 4:30pm on a Sunday, were seated immediately but had to wait for 10 minutes for our waiter. We ordered appetizers and drinks and... More

Went for lunch with a friend and it was better than expected. The bread was rustic on the outside and soft and warm on the inside. Salads were really good. We both had salmon (which wasn't on the lunch menu) and our host (he was very nice and accommodating) gave us preparation options. We also asked the origin of the... More

Good food, great service. Waiter took time to let us enjoy bread and appetizer before ordering. Food came out very quickly. Very nice night out with friends.

If your vacationing, you can fine more interesting/exciting/foodie restaurants, but this is probably more for the locals than travelers. Don't get me wrong, we happen to be locals and we love going to this place - they're very consistent in their approach, attitude, service and food. Very nice decor for a chain - contemporary and unique. The service has always... More

The food at any Francescas is always to die for. However, the service at this location is incredibly slow. Everytime we ordered with the waiter it was 20 minutes until it was filled and it was not busy at all. This is not the first time it has happened here. My favorite location is the one in Frankfort. They have... More

This place has it all: good food; great prices; and fabulous atmosphere! I had the caprese salad and cheese ravioli - both were fabulous. Also, it is conveniently located and easy to secure a reservation (same day with short or no wait). I will definitely be returning!

We had a nice lunch at Francesca's, the staff was friendly and the food was good. We live about an hour from Francesca's so we don't get out there that often but I would definitely go back when in the area.
