Amazing meal!

Dinner on the patio tonight. We dined with our daughter and boyfriend and we all ordered the filets and prime rib. The meat melted in your mouth! They buy only the best Prime beef.

Was part of a special event where I was given a tour by the proprietor. Sampled nine different entrées and each was better than the last. The shrimp casino, New York strip, Veil Parmesan, even the au gratin potatos were amazing. We all walked away with a deep appreciation for the artistry and warmth of the staff. Gorgeous fixtures, intuitive... More

Great Wednesday evening at Franchesco's - Food great as expected. Service exceptional. Our server Carly was attentive, knowledgable and professional. She took care of us but didn't rush us. The wine was fabulous, the food great, the bar was busy but the noise level was acceptable.

Fantastic Mother's Day Brunch! First time going here for brunch (been here many times for dinner, always great), and it was delicious! Made our reservation for 11:30, got there at 11:20 and waited our 10 minutes, plenty of waiting area. We sat in one of the extra rooms, it was very nice. We were greeted by our wonderful waitress Carly,... More

From an impromptu dinner to a organized group I am always completely impressed with our visit. From the finely appointed atmosphere, attentive service (Mark is my go to spoiler!), delectable entrees and live piano filling the dinning room is the coup de gras to a beautiful evening.

After working in the yard all day we decided not to cook out and instead visit one of our favorite restaurants - Franchesco's. We started with a glass of Prosecco and had calamari as an appetizer. The calamari was lightly breaded and fried and was delicious. We opted for pizza and salad. Both were excellent. The service and the food... More

This is a beautiful restaurant. The dining room is quite impressive, actually eloquent. The service was attentive and pleasant. We started with an excellent wine from the nice wine list, which we enjoyed with a very good bread basket. But the entrees were a big surprise. They were just average, at best. My house salad was excessively dressed. My wife's... More

We visited Franchesco's for the Easter Sunday brunch and it was very good. The selection of food was incredible. Too many options that I wanted to indulge upon! The food was great and our waiter, Tim, was excellent. He was personable and attentive, but didn't smother us. The atmosphere at Franchesco's is sophisticated but casual, a well balanced mix.

Franchesco's in Rockford is reminiscent of the classy supper clubs from the "rat pack" days. The atmosphere is lovely, the staff attentive, and the food delicious! Our waiter, Tim, was fantastic. He was willing to give advice on any dish and recommended fabulous wine to go with each selection we were considering. Friday and Saturday evenings they have live music... More
