“Outstanding food & service...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2012

I chose this restaurant based on a recommendation from a co-worker for a business dinner...they did not disappoint. The atmosphere is pleasant, the service was outstanding and spot on. Our meals came relatively quickly; the presentation was attractive but not 'fluffy'. The food was out of this world; I had the 4-cheese raviloi in a mushroom and prosciutto cream sauce that was on special...wow! The portion sizes were more than adequate. The entree prices ranged from $15-$30 so I felt it was reasonable considering the portions and the quality; the location is a little tough to spot if you are not looking for it or familiar with the area. I would visit again as well as recommend Francesca's.

“Always good, sometimes fabulous”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2012

We visited the week of the 20th anniversary promotion. Meals were priced accordingly. I have to say that always the food and service are GOOD. I have to give a rave to the pizza. There is always consistent happy service and the cocktails are very good, but pricy. Usually visit here at least once monthly and have attended some of the wine dinners as well. Those have been excellent.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2012

Food is very bland and overpriced. Service is just average at best.

“Hidden gem”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2012

Little hard to spot until it is too late to turn. Could not get good time for valentine dinner so I took a 4:30 time slot. The restaurant was empty throughout our entire dinner! That was very disappointing since we were seated at the back table facing the wall. Food was overlooked and small portions for the price. Waited for my date to get car and wait staff never brought dessert doggy bag to me. Disappointing wait staff and disappointing management.

“Great food and great restaurant manager”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2011

My sister had the filet mignon and I had the tortellini with chicken. They were both delicious. The prices were also good. I had a service problem which the manager corrected to 200% of my satisfaction. I would definately recommend this restaurant for special occasions and for good food.
