We had the 7 course tasting menu. We've done lots of tasting menus and the chef here did a great job slowing it down and not making it too rich so we weren't 'hurting' by the end. Kudos to the sommelier, who gave us great wine picks of more obscure German grapes but also some big hitters that were memorable.... More

One of the best meal I've ever had in my life. The food is delicious, the staff very attentive and kind, and the atmosphere relaxing -- a real treat! We will be definitely going back as many time as we can, it's one of those places you won' regret splurging. They offer degustation menus too, with 5 or 7 courses... More

Francais positions itself as a top quality French restaurant in the middle of Frankfurt, but while the food gets most of the way there, and the wine exceeds expectations, the service on our visit fell far short of what a comparable restaurant in France would offer. Not just one glitch, which can happen anywhere, but a series of issues suggesting... More

After four days of business in Frankfurt, I splurged and took my wife to this elegant restaurant. The venue in this hotel is extravagant and deserves its reputation. A suite or sport coat is appropriate for this level of dining. We had the seven course meal and were more than happy with the food and portions. Our sommelier, Frank M.... More

We celebrated my birthday with a 5 course meal plus wine accompaniment at Restaurant Français. It was superb. Fantastic, tasty food, friendly service and a nice ambience. They handled my query about a food allergy professionally and in a way that made me feel confident. The birthday sparkler and pot of jam to take home was a lovely finishing touch.... More

For some time I wanted to have dinner at Restaurant Francais. I was a little disappointed with the experience. The service was not outstanding, at several time we were left with no attention and waited minutes before being attended : at the entrance, to get the menu, to order, to get the bill. Food is not too bad but over... More

Great restaurant with great food. You might find the menu quite pricy (and remember, that for wine pairings you will have to pay separately; it is not included in the menu price), but totally worth it. Maître d'hôtel is nice, waiters are nice, sommelier is great. I don't really have anything else to add: you have to try it.

We were invited to Frankfurt for the weekend by a couple of German friends and they suggested to have dinner at "Restaurant Français". Living in Paris and being myself French and really attached to what the French cuisine can do when at its best, I was curious of eating "French" abroad. The result was far above ("mit Abstand") my expectations.... More

It is hard to find TRUE all around value in GuideMicheline-star restaurants - but Restaurant Francais in the Steigenberger Hof is an memorable exception: we were a party of 6 and spent 4 hours dining on 5-7 course dinners .
