I love the decor and diverse menu choices. Lots of healthy options, great portions, and reasonable pricing. I have been here for lunch, dinner, brunch, and drinks. I've dined on my own trying to complete work and with small and large groups. Always pleased with my meal. Service is generally good but lately hasn't been quite up to par. Hopefully... More

Had lunch with a friend. The restaurant was quiet, and the waitress was fine. The lunch food options consist of appetizers, salads, and sandwiches. That's it. Most of the appetizers looked like they might make full meals, and were priced accordingly, but it was hard to tell. The food was okay, but not fantastic. We shared fish tacos - 3... More

It was very busy, but we were greeted and serviced very quickly and friendly by Katrina. She was very helpful and recommended items to us, as it was... More

We are there last night as a couple and really enjoyed it. Our server was very polite and friendly and checked in on us. Good was good, portions are big I feel but that's a good thing. Great selection of quality wines

I have gone here a couple of times over the last few months. The atmosphere is very relaxed without being dumpy. On warmer days, they have a nice patio available for outside dining / drinking. The service is very friendly and attentive. The food is OK. All in all, this locale is a nice choice for a simple evening with... More

We went to Fresco's to celebrate a University Graduation. We were greeted promptly and service was good. We ordered mussels and crab cakes for starters which were quite good. My steak was done the way I like and the Caesar salad was good. Everyone liked their meal, ambiance was good too. Will definitely be back.

Old standby restaurant on 4th Ave serving up Italian/Mediterranean food On Tuesday nights starting at 7 pm they have a taco special which is decent. You get your choice of 3 tacos ( out of 14 or 15 ) for about 10 bucks. Bar area good plus there is a sit-down restaurant area on the other side.

Attended a bridal shower at Frescos during the Sunday brunch buffet. It was absolutely fabulous! The space was beautifully decorated and we were greeted by the friendly servers with mimosas and sangria. The food was absolutely fabulous with a huge selection to choose from! Definitely something for everyone and the pasta bar was a huge hit! The service was great... More

We had an impromptu lunch - upscale food at reasonable price! FRESH soup, salad and pizza with homemade quality. We sat in the restaurant section - lovely paintings on the walls, very complementary look . Our waitress was attentive and helpful with choices. The food was excellent- we will definitely go out of our way to return here again!
