  • "Food and service was great. We had a nice table in the corner next to the window, a nice quiet relaxing dinner. Highly recommend."

  • "The menu is varied and will fit any palate - and they always have an amazing array of specials. The wedge salad is a must! Staff is top notch - our waitress had all the specials memorized and never wrote down a word of our order - and had it all perfect! Everything is great from seafood to gourmet pizza."

  • "We were celebrating a friend's birthday. Everyone raved about their meal, and the birthday cake they make at Cafe Fresco was sensational! We were all very pleased with our experience at this restaurant."
    Dined on 5/21/2011
  • "While the wait staff was excellent and attentive, the food was lacking as to quality and quantity. The filet mignon was not a choice cut. The seafood dishes did not include all the ingredients as advertised. You may customize your plate but be aware it as a significant markup."

  • "We enjoyed our lunch! It was a nice place to go for Mother's Day. Not the best place to bring small children. I have the Chicken Ceaser Salad Pizza, would return for that!!!"

  • "Went with a large group for Mother's Day. I had never been before. Menu has choices for everyone's taste. Loved my food. Very pretty inside. Wait staff very skilled and attentive. Would go back."

  • "We have dined at CF many times and brought our guests with excellent results. This was a bad experience as the food was so-so, the service stretched by large groups, and the noise level was unbearable. We apologized to our guests who were there for the first time."

  • "Super service and wonderful food. It was a very enjoyable Easter."
    Dined on 4/24/2011
  • "Cafe Fresco is extremely loud and served mediocre food. There is a significant difference between "energetic" and " the acoustics here are terrible." My swordfish was the only element of the dinner that was above average. Calimari with a basalmic reduction doesn't mean pouring a bottle of vinegar over the platter on the way to the table. I was impressed by the service as it tried to make up for the shortcomings of the other parts of the dining experience."

  • "Experience was neutral and anonymous. It was our first visit with nothing especially noteable about the food or service. There are similarly busy places that deliver better food and leave you feeling more appreciated for your business. Giving it some more thought now, I am not surprised that Open Table sent me an email that I skipped on my reservation. As noted, it was an anonymous visit. With that said, I would not protest meeting freinds there, if it was one of their favorites. And if someone I know wants to give it a try, I would not talk them out it. It is just not a place I would promote or make part of the rotation."

  • "Cafe fresco was very busy, a vibrant scene. We were a party of 7 and we had a drink at the bar area, with great service. When we got our table, we were seated at a round table - great for a party of 7. The menu was very creative and we ordered a bunch of appetizers, which were all exclennet. The food came out very quickly. Our entrees were also excellent and the experience was very good overall. The waitress was freidnly and responsive and we would definitely visit again."

  • "almost romantic... needs to be a little quieter. food is marvelous tho Our waitress had a foreign accent and wasn't easy to understand and she wasn't very attentive. but the hostess was very helpful and the waiter we had in the bar area after dinner was very gracious."

  • "We return again and again to find some of the finest food prepared by the finest staff and served by the finest waiter (Anthony)! Always consistent!"
    Dined on 2/13/2011
  • "Prices are very reasonable for the quality and food is usually very consistent and good. Too many nightly specials to have server announce though. Should be in the menu as an insert. It can get a little noisy when crowded but can be fun as you see lots of people you know!"

  • "Went on New Years Eve, forgot what resturants do to take advantage on that special night. We were looking forward to dining at Cafe Fresco for a long time, couldn't afford it. Finally had the dough to go, online showed a great menu. When we got there, noticed only serving a "special" New Year's eve menu......no vegetarian dishes, average plate was $35 which was marked up because of the holiday.....chicken marsala for $28...really?...asked for vegetarian dish, they offered the shrimp/vegtable risoto without the shrimp....tasted great but still charged us $35 for the plate without shrimp, again really? After dessert served, had to ask the busboy to get our waitress for check, like she didn't care since we were "done", on to the next 8 top"

I had the filet mignon and my husband had the crispy salmon. Both were cooked perfectly to order. We definitely will be returning to this restaurant!"

    Dined on 12/24/2010
  • "Arrived early and the hostess tried to seat my party in the bar area instead of the main dining room even though there were several tables available in the main dining room. Ultimately I was accommodated but was annoyed that "my" table was assigned in the bar area rather than first come first serve. Maybe any reservations they receive through Open Table they rank lower and assign them less preferred seating. I was annoyed and it ruined my evening. Also I ordered a steak that came in strips - some were warm/hot and others were cool. I couldn't help but wonder how long it had been sitting in the kitchen This was the second time I came here and will not return."

  • "I was very satisfied with our experience.. WE visit each year ( and sometimes throughout the year) for our Anniversery.. The table qwas in the front corner next to the window and Christmas tree ! It was supurb. Thanks again for a great time.. ( I used the 'order flowers " and they were at the table and beautiful.."

  • "loud- tables crammed in together,my husband felt the person next to him was sitting in his lap- hard to converse above the noise, food was good, not great"

  • "As usual, Cafe Fresco did not disappoint. Restaurants come and go, but Fresco remains a pillar of fine dinning on Main Street because the food, service and atmosphere are excellent."
