One of the best restaurants in Forest Park. We had such a wonderful time. The staff was super friendly and very energetic. We will definitely be back!

Good food and drinks and fine
Good food and drinks and fine service. Convenient downtown River Forest location, with valet parking. A bit noisy but we managed to talk above the hubbub.

Attended a graduation dinner. It was perfect. I was worried about having children with and interrupting the other patrons. But luckily we had our own room. It was very special and felt cozy.

Great Local Restaurant
Wonderful food, great service. We enjoy bringing friends or our family, including the grand kids, here for an early supper.
Our favorite dishes are their Bruchette alla Romana, TIlapia Funghi, and any of their ravioli's.

Love this Francesca's!
Celebrated my daughter's birthday here, and happy we did. The food is consistently good, service excellent, and kid-friendly (we had two toddlers at our table.) Accomodated menu requests.
Greeted by the real Francesca, too!

What a great meal!
I've eaten here a few times now and they've never disappointed. On my most recent visit, and had a delicious seafood pasta dish, which followed a hearty bowl of soup and some tasty bruschetta. Everyone in our party thoroughly enjoyed their entrees and were happy with my restaurant selection. The birthday girl in our group was even surprised with a candle-lit desert (an eclaire of sorts). Great service, convenient parking, and delicious food. Would highly recommend and not hesitate to return.

As good as expected. We have been to this one before going to the Circle Theater and the ones in in Arlington Heights and Barrington. They have maintained their fine quality of food and service at all their restaurants. We went there after Brookfield Zoo.You did not disappoint even though we had not been to this particular one in awhile. We will be back when we are in the area or returning home on the Eisenhower and need a break. Thank you for maintaining your quality.

Wonderful Italian food and reasonably priced. I had the special which was a medley of seafood in a spicy marina sauce and spouse had grouper. Both were salty but delicious. The bread was wonderful as well! It stands on its own with no need for oil or butter. Our server was polite and helpful when I did not care for the cocktail I ordered. We will be back because this was truly a wonderful meal!

Everything was great. My only
Everything was great. My only suggestion would be that they increase their menu. I've never been to an Italian restaurant that didn't have just a Red Spaghetti, sauce, no meatballs or sauage. Veal or Chicken Parmigana.

Great food! Very Nice Atmosphere
Francesca's have been a favorite for many years ..because of their consistently good food. ..Menu is limited, but A bit of Variation from the "typical" Italian dishes makes it interesting and freshness is always the key to their deliciousness!!
Service was very good . .Waiter accommodated our special requests. . .and even cut my pizza when it came to the table. nice touch. . . . Hostess was also very attentive coming to our table 2 or 3 times to see if everything was OK . . .at the end of the evening .. seemed like maybe she was trying to rush us however, . . maybe not. . but seemed strange because it was late. . .. .But a beautiful night to sit outside .. to add to the great Food! and Wine! Hope to visit all the Francesca's this year!

Dining at Fiore is always a treat. Great place to give an event, whether it's celebrating a birthday, shower or getting together with family and friends, the service and food are impeccable!

just as expected
I expected high quality, fresh food and got what I expected. I've always liked the Francesca franchise for having an always changing menu, but with some regular items as well.

First time won't be the last
First time visit to Francesca's Fiore, won't be our last. Food was delicious, service was top notch and overall experience was just wonderful. Highly recommended.

Reliably good dining
Nice variety on the menu. Well prepared food. Moderately priced. Friendly, but professional waitstaff who seemed to work well together. Great place. And it's open on Mondays when many other restaurants aren't.

I ordered one of their seasonal
I ordered one of their seasonal special dishes i.e. pumpkin filled ravioli in brown butter sauce -- it was excellent. Others in my party raved about their dishes i.e. spaghetti with a medley of seafood. Unfortunately, the generous quantity inhibited us from ordering desserts which sounded very appealing. I was warned by the server that this might occur. Next time, I'll skip the antipasto and go for a dessert.

Francesca's still has it.
I had last been to Francesca's when it was a single location on Taylor Street, and it was wonderful. I was hoping that this expansion into the suburbs would maintain its quality, and it has. The ambiance of the restaurant was very nice - we sat a few tables from a fireplace, which was a great touch on a cold November night. The service was a little slow at first, but picked up nicely, and was always friendly. The pear salad special was delightful, and I had the pork chops, which came with roasted vegetables and a wonderful sauce. The lamb ragu was also delightful. Overall, it was a very nice evening.
