The food is very good as well as the service. Value is good as well but the atmosphere is a bit plain compared to other area restaurants and other Francesca's

Get there early for their happy hour, great prices for that area on select beers and rail drinks. The waitstaff and food were really good. Plus don't miss there complimentary warm bread and grated cheese, make sure yo drizzle litte of their olive oil on top. Ps. Wednesday is half price bottle eine.

We had a business dinner at this restaurant and I must say I was very impressed with the quality of the food. The staff was very helpful and the service very good. If I am back in the area I would stop at this place again.

Visited for a meal with colleagues. That was quite reasonable place. Pasta was good and service was acceptable. Overall ambience was good. Not expensive. All in all a good deal.

I have eaten here several times, always with delicious results. ATMOSPHERE: This is a loud restaurant at peak times. You do need to make a reservation. If you have a special event or want more privacy, ask for a booth in the back behind the counter at the entrance. Booths are spacious and can fit more than 4 people if... More

I went to Francesca's for my anniversary, it was a Friday night at 6:30pm. It was not crowded and we were seated right away although I did make a reservation.

No heavy sauces to bury the taste of your protein so the flavor of what you are eating is there. Just had a party there for fifty guests. The food was the best and... More

We arrived on a Saturday night without a reservation and were greeted with a positive response and a lovely table near the fireplace (albeit close to the kitchen entryway). The wine list was impressive with plenty for all price ranges. Out server surprisingly offered to decant our wine which was a nice plus!!!We opted for the delicious salads as starters... More
