The food was good but a little pricey. Could have been informed the fresh squeezed OJ was $4.00 a glass. Had a good time but probably not do it again- too expensive.

I usually go there when part of large group celebration since have many private areas for groups. Have group menus and selections. Food good. Service good. Offers family style serving for large groups.

Four of us had dinner here and while the service was excellent, the food was not impressive. I ordered escargot, which was a delight to see on the menu, as an appetizer. The "toast points" were VERY crispy to say the least, more like a melba toast crunchiness. The escargot themselves were plump and delivered hot, but the garlic and... More

My wife ordered the filet, medium well. Waiter brought a very well done (burned) filet. We sent it back for a second try and the chef burned it again. Third time's a charm right? Not at this restaurant, third steak appeared to be cooked correctly and when the filet was turned over, it was burned on the bottom and the... More

Food was fantastic. The 2 for $29 menu is a great idea. Really enjoyed our dinner and the romantic atmosphere.

Franchesco's is real upscale and I would say the food is excellent! We came here with some family and had a real nice Dinner. Everyone enjoyed their food and really had no complaints at all. Food is pricey but worth it! It's what you can expect from a place this nice. Great place to wine and dine your lady!

My boyfriend took me here on our anniversary and it was amazing.👌😁 the service was quick and very friendly, the atmosphere was gorgeous. We had a stuffed steak with some serious dried tomato sauce that made me pay attention to it, not my boyfriend! He had a fettuccine with red sauce and sausage and he enjoyed it. He also a... More

Duncan is a wonderful server. Friendly and very willing to answer questions and get us anything we needed. This is a huge restaurant and event center. Every thing we had, from salmon to ribeye was good. No complaints. Just not memorable. Go there for a good dinner. I'm a food snob. It wasn't great.

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. Our waitress Talisa was very knowledgeable and took great care of us. She knew the IPA beers and was able to suggest some good ones. Everything... More
