Diner Reviews
  • "We have been to both Fresco Restaurants and prefer this one to the restaurant in Carlsbad. This restaurant is quiet, intimate, and romantic. The Carlsbad restaurant is large, very open, loud, and busy. We enjoyed the same menu in both places and we both chose pasta dishes this time. However, they had an amazing list of specials which we found very impressive. There was a wonderful singer/guitarist who sang at just the right level so that it did not interfere with our conversation. The service was excellent, even though we had someone who was new and without a great deal of restaurant background. Nevertheless, she did a great job with us. As the two locations are relatively equidistant from our home, we will go to this restaurant in Bonsall."

  • "I've been visiting Fallbrook for 6 or 8 years, and this was this best meal I've had there -- even if the restaurant is technically in Bonsall (7 or 8 minutes away), and not Fallbrook."

  • "My wife and I always enjoy Fresco Grill. Great food. Great service. We tend to stop in every few weeks or so, and to take friends when we have someone visiting. We often try the specials, and have never been disappointed, but this particular time we ordered regular menu items."

  • "We ended up having one appetizer and then a main course each, (stuffed trout and the lobster). It was pretty good, though a little over cooked. The service was great. Very cool looking Fresco picture on the wall, and nice looking bar. Friendly staff. It would be nice if their main specials would stay under thirty dollars. A bit of a drive if you are coming from Escondido or Oceanside."

  • "I really like this location, the Sunday brunch is always good and the people are great. Wednesday nights with their half price bottle of wines with live music and dinner specials is great as well. Highly recommended."

  • "We always enjoy this restaurant, but have questioned lately whether we get what we pay for. The food is fine - not great - fine, but nothing exciting or that gives me the feeling that it's worth the prices I'm paying. The salads are skimpy and uninspired. It's really too bad, as the ambiance is delightful, and the servers are always pleasant."

  • "Our usual places were all booked early this year so we sought out something new and picked the Fresco Grill in Bonsall / Fallbrook. Reservations were certainly required as they appeared full before we finished. Service was great, food was excellent and a very extensive wine list. Parking was a bit difficult with the full house and the theaters next door, but well worth the hassle."

  • "3 couples and 3 checks. Food was OK but service was a bit daffy. Almost every item was delivered to the wrong person and two of the three checks (for two each) were mixed-up. Not quite what I expected for a relatively pricey meal. Table for 6 was in what must normally be the bar because there was a tv about 5 feet from the table. An amplified guitarist was about 5 feet away in another direction. Not sure we will return as this place is a bit off the beaten track and better food and service are available for similar money."

  • "Food & Ambience are great! Usually like live entertainment but not when I'm eating and trying to socialize. Stick with some nice background (Italian, flamenco...) music. Last two times there they had a solo entertainer who was monotonous and annoying who didn't take enough breaks. There were 6 of us and all agreed."

  • "We have been drawn here for years and really enjoyed the live music last weekend. The vegetarian selection is limited but SO good. I love the mushroom ravioli! We tried the chocolate souffle for the first time. OMG - the best chocolate desert I've ever had!!"

  • "We have tried the other Fresco restaurant in downtown Carlsbad and found this to be a smaller version with similar beautifully rendered frescos on the walls. The food was very good as was the service. We enjoyed our meals and look forward to trying something else on the menu on another occasion. Large menu with many choices. Also, several specials."
