    First time there (to celebrate our anniversary) and highly recommended by friends, great service and the food was awesome. Only thing that bothered me a bit was the inside temperature was a little too warm but overall the experience was very good. The delivery of the flowers was perfect, on our table as we arrived.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 9/23/2014
    Took my hubby to Franck's for birthday. Reservation was for 8pm on a gorgeous late September evening, so eating outside was a must. Like its next door neighbor, Tuscany (where we enjoy dining), the grounds are beautiful, & for those who chill easily, patio warmers are readily available. We dined on brussel sprouts, wedge salad, butterscotch cauliflower soup, an arugula (& maybe polenta?) coffee-infused taster, wagyu, & meatloaf. Every dish had a sweet & savory element. For dessert, a complimentary fruity creme brulee, & a chocolate torte. Food was delicious, except we did not love the wagyu dish, (I think horseradish was the culprit), which is unfortunate to pay $40 in that case. Portions are generous, as we had leftovers. Service was nice.

    Franck's is my favorite restaurant out of all the restaurants I have ever eaten at. Having lived all over the west coast, it is on par or better than all the places I have experienced. The menu is always imaginative and executed to perfection. The best item on the menu is the Sous Vide Wagyu steak, it just melts in your mouth. Careful though, it may make it so you don't ever want another steak. The fondue and brussel sprout appetizers are not to be missed. The servers are always friendly and on point.

    When I first found Franck's three years ago I described it as world class, now I don't know that I'll ever go back again. It was my birthday dinner but we decided to forgo dessert because the soup was so cloyingly sweet we didn't want anymore sugar. The pork belly had too many notes of flavor, the hot wings were unimpressive, the brussel sprouts I used to love were dried out and bland, the bread stale and the butter a sad hunk cut off the stick. Our server mumbled, our meal was luke warm and served far later than it should have taken. I hesitated to post a bad review, because I love Franck's, but I want to ensure they know how one long-time diner felt about their experience. I hope they can get things back to where it was.

    My wife believed she may have left her sunglasses while at dinner. I called next day and was assured they were not in the place they would be if found. I explained exactly where they would be if we had left them. I was told the same crew would be returning and maybe they knew something. My contact would not apparently look where I indicated so my wife drove there and could not gain entry. She returned later to unfriendly staff who begrudgingly allowed her to enter. She found her glasses on the dining room floor in the exact location I had indicated. There was no apology or other acknowledgement whatsoever. Although our waiter was fine, my years in the industry run completely counter to this level of customer service.

  • This is not your grandma's Meatloaf

    Dined on 9/5/2014
    In spite of the neighborhood, the restaurant has enough foliage to hide the street and provide a very quiet atmosphere. Afraid then that I was under-dressed in t-shirt and jeans, I noted that people dressed in all fashions were walking in and I would feel comfortable in any attire. We had the ono appetizer because it sounded different. It was tasty but rather small for $12, but my husband enjoyed that more than I did. We usually share a meal, but I had read several reviews touting the meatloaf as well as the fried chicken, so we got both. Neither was a disappointment. In fact, amazing would be more accurate. The unique combination of flavors are inspired and demand that the diner to savor rather than devour each bite. Pricey, but worth it.

  • The Tasting Menu is a 'must try'...
    JohnDVIP
    Dined on 9/2/2014
    Franck's is our new favorite restaurant. By all means peruse and try the entire menu (particularly the brussel sprout starter) but my goal here is to recommend the best dining value in the valley in the form of their Tuesday 'Tasting Menu'. Three courses (which has always turned into four with the addition of the daily soup) for $30 and every mouthful is sensational. Tasting menus typically have smaller portions and that's the case here but don't think you'll walk away hungry; we can guarantee you won't. This Tuesday tasting menu has always been exceptional, both in terms of the taste and quality AND the outstanding service and 'presentation'. One last thing: you simply won't believe the 'uniqueness' of the courses.

    We have been to Franck's before. This time we were disappointed. Ordered sea bass which was way too salty. There were 6 of us, the meals came out separately. Normal etiquette would dictate to wait to eat until everyone was served. The first person served to the last was greater than 5 minutes. We will not go back especially if the menu is not expanded. How many times do you want to pay $27 for meatloaf or $33 for salty sea bass?

This was for our 40th wedding anniversary, and we couldn't have imagined a better experience. The crispy Brussels Sprout's loud are downright addictive. The Meatloaf is without compare. Wow!

    This is a beautiful restaurant and service is great. For my taste the food was a bid too much on the eclectic side. They were trying very hard to be different. The food was beautiful to look at but lots of unusual ingredients made the taste less than I had hoped for our anniversary dinner.

    The specials on the menu were the chef's whimsical creations. Sometimes, as in the duck with a dark chocolate fois gras sauce, they worked pretty well. Others such as the BLT soup were just weird. I got lucky and managed to hit mostly good stuff. My wife's meal was generally on the weird side, and she left most of it on the table.

    My husband and I went here for the first time for our anniversary, and it was fantastic! People who rave about the meatloaf and sous vide steak are not exaggerating—SO. GOOD. We also had the crispy Brussels sprouts, which were also incredible. I particularly loved my husband's cocktail (I can't remember what it was called, but it was basically a whiskey sour with fresh mint), and promptly traded him for mine (a rum/pineapple juice concoction that was a bit too sweet for me). For dessert, we had the whiskey butterscotch pudding. It was STRONG. Very tasty, but I couldn't eat much more than a few bites. The staff was very attentive and kind as well. The manager came out and wished us a happy anniversary! Great experience.

    We dined a Franck's for the 1st time in celebration of my daughter's birthday. The food was mostly superior and the service was superb. We highly recommend the Brussel sprouts, but both of our main courses were delicious. The salad was not our favorite as it was supposed to be a "wedge of butter lettuce" but was actually iceberg. Alas. Lastly, we had the carrot cake for dessert. The cake itself was somewhat dry and overall needed more cream cheese frosting and less of the "shell" jacket. In all, though, we loved the experience and we will go again and again.

    Aside from the charming outdoor ambiance, the personalized customer service and surprising menu selection has turned me into a raving fan. We were able to take our time to savor the wine pairing appetizer fondue, bask in the twists and bursts of favors of our entree' and end with such delight in the ice cream for dessert. It was a perfect first date experience... Made the my date dreamier. Nice to day dream of getting a wedding proposal at the same spot one day. Nonetheless I will return to enjoy the rest of the menu with family and clients.

    Franck's is a favorite of ours but we had not dined there in awhile. The evening was great, as always. Our server was outstanding---very knowledgable, friendly, and professional. And the food was incredible. My husband had a favorite---the fried chicken, and being born & raised in Georgia, he is very critical of fried chicken & he says Franck's preparation is the best (other than Mom's, of course!). I had the sea bass which was prepared to perfection.

    We love Franck's. Not only is the food always great but everyone always makes you feel like you've been invited to their home for dinner. Marla is an incredibly AWSOME server who makes the experience memorable every time. We have always felt so welcome at Franck's we have come to know many people who work there by name. That's not very common for us to get to know staff that well. The soups are always a must and if you want a great appetizer, go with the fondue.
