We were a large group of 10- adults, kids, and a baby. Our table was ready when we arrived and they brought a different highchair to accommodate the baby's carrier. The older kids were supplied with little craft kits. The drinks were made as requested, they split the bill to accommodate all of the families, a gorgeous sunset, and a... More

This is a very good-looking restaurant with a nice view of the bay. The patrons were all well-dressed (considering this is the beach!) and it seemed like such a good choice. Until the food arrived---veal chops that were mostly gristle, seafood with some unidentifiable sauce--this was a big disappointment. This restaurant says about themselves "this is the only fine dining... More

We ate here about 6 years ago with our young kids during the winter and remembered it when we were here this year for our family summer vacation. Our server Allison was excellent, very attentive and knowledgeable. The food was excellent. I had a seafood pasta and wanted to lick the bowl :) We opted not to bring our 13... More

We travel to Ocean City every year and Fresco's is where we have our last meal before leaving. Year in and year out it remains one of the better OC restaurants. Service, food, location and atmosphere are top notch. The house specialty of lump crab meat and bruschetta is a must.

Always make it a point to return to Fresco's every time that we vacation in Delaware. The sunset view from the dining area is just beautiful., the food is always great and the cocktails and wine selection is always very good. We always try to have Bob as our server because he just adds to the positive experience at Fresco's.... More

Seated next to the piano bar this exquisitely romantic restaurant embraces its guests in the most amazing culinary, visual and rhythmic delights tantalizing the mind, body and the spirit. The carpaccio was superb the escargot tender n flavor heightened. The veal/lobster entree was magnificent and the creme brulee and gelato finish creamy and indulgent with robust cappuccinos. Excellent bar variety... More

You know when you try someplace and then come back awhile later and it's awful. This is not the case here, food was delicious and the piano player was an excellent treat. Generous amount of Carpaccio and the veal and lobster was wonderful. The bar was nicely stocked to make special drinks other than the standard ones. Try come in... More

We have been visiting OC for a week for the last ten years. By far, this is the best dining experience we ever had. The service, food and decor were wonderful.

Took our family of 8 and had a great meal. Great views and very good staff. Made reservations at least a week in advance. We always try to bring the whole family at once when in OC. Its like a family tradition. Thanks

My husband and I went here for a quiet evening while on vacation. We were greeted warmly at the door, seated immediately, and had a table overlooking the Bay. Our waitress was friendly, professional and very efficient. We had a wonderful bottle of wine pre-ordered by our son. My husband is always looking for "good" Italian or seafood and this... More
