I reviewed Francesca's back in December 2009. I loved it then, but I complained about the boring soft bread. I stated that I liked a nice crusty bread. Well, I finally made it back to Francesca's last night for dinner, and the bread was delicious and crusty too! Everything else about our meals was wonderful. Raymond did a great job as our server. We shared 3 appetizers for the table, everyone in our party of 5 enjoyed their entrees, and we all had dessert and coffee. Paris was great behind the bar while we enjoyed a drink before dinner. I couldn't believe how crowded it was at 6:30 on a Wednesday evening in the middle of February! And yes, it was a bit loud as one reviewer stated, but that had to do with the fact that every table was full and there were several large parties out celebrating different occassions. I find that to be the case just about everywhere these days. As a society we seem to have gotten away from quiet decorum in exchange for louder, more exhibitionist behaviors in public. I can hardly blame the restaurant for that. Looking forward to our next dinner at Francesca's. I won't wait so long this time!
