A word from St. Francis
A celebration of sustenance may best describe Chef Aaron Chamberlin’s restaurant, St. Francis. Located in a historic building on Camelback Road, just east of Central in uptown Phoenix, the family-owned, family-built and family-run restaurant welcomes patrons to a neighborhood gathering place. The repurposed space was transformed with a comfortably modern and rustic sensibility that echoes the honest, spontaneous “wood-fired cuisine. St. Francis is for everyday nourishment for families, couples and even for special occasions.
It’s for connecting with the community and sharing the pleasure of simple, honest and good food. The name, “St. Francis,” was derived from the
neighborhood land deed that dates back to 1936. It was originally owned by the Brophy family. In addition, the name, “St Francis,” is Spanish for San
Francisco, a city that figured largely in Chef Chamberlin’s background.

Diner Reviews
  • "Ever watch Guy Fieri and he eats something and says its ridiculous? Thats what happened to me here. I'll be back... soon."
    Dined on 7/29/2014
  • "This place has so much potential I just seem to be disappointed with the inconsistency of service. The food is always great, location is amazing and how could you not love the outdoor patio and bar?"
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "St. Francis was PERFECT for our group of 8. We ordered some of everything from the menu, and shared it family style. Everything was outstanding. The service was great as well."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "We originally went for cocktails and a small bite before a concert. The food - especially the stuffed peppers - were very impressive! The cocktails are always on point. We also had the veggie flatbread, baked goat cheese, chopped salad and something else that I cannot recall. All 4 of us loved our food. The service was friendly, but not something I'd rate as Outstanding at this time."

  • "Very disappointed...Scallops were overcooked salad overdressed. Should have gotten the pizza only thing that looked good while it went passed my table. Very loud and felt like I was in the conversation at my neighbors table."

  • "Took a trip here again and the food was great Kitchen was a bit slow but service was good Always consistent good food and service"

  • "St. Francis has a great drink menu for happy hour, no matter what you drink. Wine is 1/2 price, specialty cocktails are $5, and beer is on special as well. Happy hour food is delicious! I totally recommend the French Onion Burger!"
    Dined on 7/17/2014
  • "Went with a group of six. Groups I think are more difficult here. Loud, and environment--although cool and urban feel--not really conducive to easy conversation across a big table. Could do with some 6-top rework. Outdoors a little easier for hearing. Nice ambiance. Food seems to be hit or miss. Salmon delicious. Flatbread came out charred. Would love to see more small plate options and menu revisions seasonally."

  • "We were seated ahead of our reservation even though the other couple hadn't arrived yet. That surprised us. We were there for lunch and three of us ordered the onion burger and the fourth choosing the chicken salad sandwich. She had to take half home because it was quite large but the rest of us finished off our delicious burgers and fries. Everything was cooked properly and was full of flavor. Our server was very attentive and helpful."
    Dined on 7/16/2014
  • "It's a nice little restaurant but the drinks were weak, the food was so-so and $100 later we realized it was not a place we would return at all. My wife had the Salmon which was tasty but way overpriced, i had the Meat Pizza which was bland at best and our drinks, Jack & coke were ok, and her specialty drink tasted like dish soap to both of us. Not worth going with so many other restaurants in the area."

  • "The food was fantastic! We started by sharing the melon salad which was refreshing and perfect for a hot summer night. I had the simple rice bowl for dinner which is a hidden gem. Our server did a great job in giving us all the deets on the menu items including the most popular, preparation of each dish and full ingredients. Loved our date at St. Francis! :)"

  • "My two girlfriends and I met for Sunday brunch on 6/29/14 at 12:30 pm. I have had other delicious meals at St. Francis, but thought I would try something new; the chicken salad sandwich this time. I normally do not eat chicken very often, but have to say this sandwich was SO outstanding that I now find myself "craving" it. It was served like a wrap on flat bread and not a bun. I enjoyed the unusual Middle Eastern flavors that included the zatar spice, apricots and currants. It was blended in a light lemon vinegarette and THANK YOU, NO mayo! The only thing I might eliminate from the sandwich would be the tomato. It really wasn't needed and fell off the sandwich while I was eating it. The live Jazz music was great, too!"
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "Food was excellent but the jazz band was way too loud. More like a night club than background music at brunch. Customers had to yell to have conversations."
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "St. Francis is a treat to the eye, the design details were eclectic and unique. At our table we had the stuffed peppers, the pot roast and the Moroccan meatballs. Everything was delicious and impeccably prepared. We will definitely return!"

  • "One of my favorite downtown restaurants. The soups and bread are delicious. Love the French onion burger. Wait staff always super friendly."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "If you're into organic and farm fresh foods, this may be the place for you. The restaurant purports to not even own a microwave nor a freezer. I ordered the free range chicken (special) and it melted in my mouth. The plate was creatively arranged with an interesting array of local veggies. We ordered their homemade, fresh mozzarella with tomatoes and shared it at the table...excellent! The restaurant has a neighborhood vibe and we will certainly return again and again."

  • "My wife and I went for our anniversary and St. Francis is truly a gem. Not only is it a beautiful space designed by a well known PHX Architect, the food and service is breathtakingly fantastic! Make sure you grab the bread plate to start - the bread is so good we have to take a loaf home every time we go. She had the pork chile verde with corn bread, I had the pork chop. The combination of flavors that hits your mouth makes your taste buds go wild with delight. The staff was prompt, friendly, and spot on. From fabulous cocktails, bread, food, atmosphere, and service - I'd recommend St. Francis to anyone who enjoys locally sourced, delicious food. A PHX must!"

    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "This was my second visit but the first time was a couple years ago. I always wanted to go back, and finally I did. This time I sat on the 2nd floor which had a lot less noise than the first floor. Food was good; We had Tomato mozzarella salad and cheese flat bread. Salad was good but the flat bread was burnt so although we cut the edge, we couldn't finish the food. Another than that, everything was very nice. The service was good and the ambience was good. If you are new and looking for a local restaurant, you need to go here."
    Dined on 6/18/2014
  • "Awesome all the way around. Try the flat bread! Food & service are great. Looking forward to going back."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "My wife and I had dinner at St. Francis Saturday night before Fathers Day. The restaurant was very busy but reservations were prompt, the service great and the food prepared as described. The only critique would be noise level inside the restaurant; next time we will request outside seating."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "We decided to try the St. jFrancis because we saw it promoted on "DDD". The menu looked so creative and it had a funky, fun look. Food was delicious (loved the Moroccan meatballs)and service was great. We will be back."
    Dined on 6/10/2014
  • "We wished we could try many things on the menu so we'll have to go back. But lunch was good and good we had reservations. It filled up very fast. The French onion burger was delicious!"
    Dined on 6/10/2014
  • "My husband and I dined at St. Francis after seeing their feature on DDD. This place did not disappoint! You could easily see that so much care was put into everything from the impeccable service to the detailed decor to the delicious food. A live jazz band played during Sunday brunch - what a treat. Complimentary valet was an added bonus. Every dish and drink we tried was amazing. It ruined us as we no longer want to eat out for brunch. Every other restaurant pales in comparison!"

  • "We went here because we had a meal there previously that was fantastic. We brought friends with us who had never been. The food was excellent, though my mashed potatoes were cold when they arrived at the table. The server sucked big time. So bad that I had to actually beg the matre'd for some bread.. We had asked the server for bread and 15 minutes later, there still was no bread. We also nearly had to ask the matre'd once again to call the server to our table to take our order. I had a great experience the first time there, and we'll go again. But folks, if you feel ignored by your server, talk to the manager --- don't wait and make the experience worse for yourselves."

  • "We used to really like St. Francis but it appears the prices have risen and the food quality is not as good - sadly, we were disappointed at our last visit."
    Dined on 6/5/2014
  • "Delicious food served beautifully. The flat bread was delicious as were our main courses. The service was excellent and the surroundings fun. I appreciate the valet parking since their parking lot is very small. I shall return. "

  • "Two of us arrived for a 1 pm brunch reservation last Sunday to find a blister of humans waiting to be seated. Indoor seating is tight and the bustling wait staff and ambient noise created by energetic patrons and clumsy busboys create an environment that you'll either love or hate. We began with chilled asparagus mimosa, a traditional presentation with dill-infused tartar sauce and diced egg. The asparagus, perfect this time of year, was beautifully prepared. An omelet with roasted mushrooms and goat cheese was made all the more delicious by the jus that tied the dish together. Finished with the signature dark chocolate skillet pancake, a perfect conclusion to a wonderful Sunday afternoon at one of Phoenix's livelier brunch spots. "

  • "This was my third and final visit here. This was supposed to a fun brunch for a friends birthday. We arrived a little early, and were told that we would have to wait for our reserved time. Normally this is okay, however we were sent off to wait, literally hovering over our table, looking at our seats, until the rude hostesses said we could sit. Then we were told that the kitchen was backed up so would be longer than usual. One bartender serving an overcrowded restaurant made it impossible for us to even get drinks while waiting. Our server tried to be nice and play it off, but after consistently receiving awful service, especially from the hostesses, i will make efforts to take my (and my friend's) business elsewhere. So many better options"

  • "The food was very good although it was very loud inside and my mother is hard of hearing so it was hard to have a conversation. If it weren't 100 degrees we would have eaten outside. "
