We went here based on the recommendation from our B&B hosts. The food was great. On our first visit the service was friendly but not up to par with fine dining. The waitress forgot out salad and offered to bring during the meal (which we did). One of the deserts was dry. Our waitress should have compensated us for at... More

For fine dining this restaurant is seriously lacking. I have received better service at Olive Garden. To keep this brief I will just highlight things that were wrong: Entree arrived while we were still eating our salad ... felt like we were being rushed which pretty much happened throughout our meal. Our salad plate should have been cleared before our... More

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
