Check PleaseWe saw St. Francis featured on the local AZ channel program Check Please. We did make reservation on a Wednesday evening and it was a good idea as it was quite busy. We shared a couple of appetizers, the goat cheese and the meatballs. Both were fantastic! For the entree I chose the Pig Dip and my girlfriend had the Chile Verde. We were both impressed with the food and would recommend for someone looking for good restaurant with a different offering.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMA place to shareWonderful assortment of food on the menue, and the drinks (I've had some cocktails) are FABULOUS. The bartenders were very pleasent and so are the waiters and waitresses.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMDefinitely Worth the PriceI live some far from this amazing restaurant but it was definitely worth the drive! Ive gone there 2 times so far and I'm never disappointed! Kids eat free which I thought was shocking because its a full sized meal. My brother who tends to be picky about foods and normally eats alot since he's a growing athlete, loved the kids meal and said it was too much for him to finish. The steak meal with veggies and wine sauce is probably the best food I've ever eaten! Its beyond delicious! They also have a starter salad for $3 and it has amazing dressing on it! They also sell $3 loafs of bread to take home. I have to say if I could I would eat there every day!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMy favorite in townSt. Francis is my favorite hang out but it is far from my home so I only go about once every other month. This time I had the Salmon Superfood which was perfectly cooked and seasoned. My favorite dishes are the Green Chile Pork and the Meatballs. We sat outside for the first time. The micromisters were on but they were too strong for an evening in the low 80s. We were cold and did not want to linger around very long. The service was a bit slower than usual.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyable repeatMet earlier with an alumni crowd. Our growing numbers were accommodated. The staff cooperated and helped each other on a very busy evening. All of the staff were pleasant and helped to enhance the visit. Pot roast was very tastey. Had a free dessert on an anniversary coupon given from an earlier visit. Complimentary parking was necessary. Will do it again.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMFresh delicious foodFirst time at St. Francis, fresh local food, homeade bread daily,
Truly friendly service sometimes hard to find.
I had the french onion burger, it was fantastic,
the flavor in the meat was outstanding didnt even need ketchup:)
The restaurant is clean & hip, cant wait to go again.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMWish it was in ManhattanWe were visiting from NYC this week and absolutely fell in love with the energy and food in St. Francis and ended up goin back twice in two days. Staff = amazing. Food = unreal! You must try the meatballs, so amazingly good. The French Onion Burger was superb. I think they bake their own bread and pastries. (Try the cinnamon roll. OMG yummy.) I wish this place was in Chelsea, we'd be there everyday. Enjoy :)5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMWent for lunch the serviceWent for lunch the service from Ryan was excellent! The flat bread (cheese) and cauliflower soup was excellent! The Kale Ceasar salad is delicious, light and filling the combo with the soup is an excellent choice. I will return for more tasting of the menu.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMI made the reservation toI made the reservation to have brunch with "the girls". We had a wonderful time catching up and eating good food in a relaxed environment.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMVery good meal and serviceVery good meal and service - high;y recommend - although your specialty drinks will cost you.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMI reserved a lunch table forI reserved a lunch table for six on the patio. I brought five ladies, none of whom had dined with you. They all left wanting to return. The birthday gal was served a surprise dessert.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMVery good food and great serviceVery good food and great service but not a restaurant to spend a lot of time dining in as their seating is so uncomfortable. It felt like I was sitting on a park bench. Also their menu is a bit pricy for what you get.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMNever a disappointment--alwaysNever a disappointment--always consistent and delicious!!!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is the PlaceMy wife loved the Forbidden bowl and the items coming off of the wood fired grill are great. The flat bread was super as well. Great room which is open to the an arbor covered outdoor dining space. The dress code is casual but people in jeans and shorts looked a little under dressed. Parking is limited but they offer complimentary valet parking. I dare you to try to drink just one cucumber cooler cocktail, can't be done. If you are in town visiting family just make a reservation in advance and get your parents out of The Bonefish Grill for an evening.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMA favorite!Really like this place. Food and vibe are great. However, if sitting inside, it is very loud.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMSt Francis is the perect combinatioSt Francis is the perect combination of excellent service, tasty food and a lively, vibrant setting.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMReally enjoyed the ArizonaReally enjoyed the Arizona microbrew selections. Very eclectic menu & reminded me a lot of Beckett's Table--not that there's anything wrong with that.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMWe always enjoy St. FrancisWe always enjoy St. Francis but it had been a while since we last dined there. It was a wonderful start to last weekend.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMReally nice place.St. Francis was great. We were there recently for Easter breakfast. The staff was friendly and efficient. We were traveling with a dog and they treated us and our dog like family seating us first at the far end of the patio where we could relax without bothering other diners. I don't suggest traveling with a dog, but when unavoidable, St. Francis lives up to their name. The food was delicious and served beautifully.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food is consistently deliciousThe food is consistently delicious and flavorful; the only downside is that it tends to get really noisy and the background music only adds more. Lose to the mix! That said, this is a favorite!3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMA new find for me. I ate dessertA new find for me. I ate dessert adn teh sticky toffee pudding w/the cram gelato was perfect! The couple next to me had the Happy Hour Salmon and Quinoa and the 1/2 Roast Chicken both dishes looked tasty and their plates were clean - I will try the salmon next time I go. A definite return trip to sample more on the menu.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMThe pot roast is divine everyThe pot roast is divine every time I have it which is often!3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMMy only complaint is thatMy only complaint is that everything came out TOO FAST. We had cocktails immediately, which was great, but then our appetizers appeared when we had still barely sat down and starting sipping. And then our entrees arrived (not exactly at the same time - it would be nicer to serve them together) immediately after that. There was no time to relax and digest and I felt that we were being rushed through the meal instead of being allowed to enjoy it at a moderately leisurely pace. There was however more of a gap between entree and dessert, thank goodness. Food was quite good, but I enjoyed it less because I didn't have time in between courses.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Spot1st time and really enjoyed food and service. I had meatballs and they were very good.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMI've been going to the St.I've been going to the St. Francis for years and it never disappoints. Great atmosphere, great food, great service. Such a cool building in a truly great Phoenix neighborhood.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, great service,Great food, great service, lovely place, way too loud.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMWe enjoyed a delicious brunchWe enjoyed a delicious brunch made even better by the jazz combo accompaniment, which was just the right volume--you could hear and enjoy it while still being able to talk.3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had company arriving fromWe had company arriving from out of town and wanted to try the brunch. My son & I both ordered the eggs benedict w/prosciutto and it was outstanding. I also had a coupon to try a flatbread (we ordered the cheese one) and it was absolutely delicious. The food and the service have always been superb! Have recommended this restaurant to friends and they were very pleased as well. We are customers for life.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was our first time atThis was our first time at St. Francis on the recommendation of a friend. This friend is a foodie so I knew we were in good hands! The friends we dined with had some dietary restrictions with gluten and dairy and the menu was perfect for them. My husband and I shared the salmon superfood and pork chop special. I cannot wait to go back and have the salmon all to myself! Everyone on the staff seemed very knowledgeable and most of all, enthusiastic about the food they were preparing and serving. St. Francis is definitely on our list of recommended restaurants now!3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMSt. Francis has become oneSt. Francis has become one of our favorite places to dine. The food and drinks are amazing, and the service is always great. Looking forward to eating there again.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat spot, wonderful food.Great spot, wonderful food. Try the fingerling potatoes3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMMy kind of placeThe St. Francis is one of my favorite restaurants in the valley. The quality of the food and the great serving staff make this venue a must visit location in central Phoenix. We always like to arrive well before our reservation to spend time sitting outside at the bar enjoying a glass of wine, or one of their great deals on cocktails. Dinner is never rushed and the staff is full of great suggestions. I especially like the menu as it has something for everyone without being so large as to make it hard to choose. The crowd is very eclectic, hipsters, families, business, tourists, young and old. You'll be comfortable in shorts and flip flops, or a dress shirt and tie.3/12/2013 12:00:00 AMBest dinner out in forever!!Best dinner out in forever!! Loved it!
