Cafe Fresco - Center City
Excellent service and delicious food. Very comfortable space. Great menu!
The service was outstanding! It seemed to take forever to get our food though. The chopped salad was extremely disappointing. I’ve had it many times before and this one was just blah.
Great drinks, food, and service! Love it here!
First time at Cafe Fresco, we were there for Sat brunch. Nice offerings and great variety. The restaurant is a bit eclectic, concrete floors and lots of funky seating. It has a cooler vibe rather than warm and romantic. Service was great and we would go back again.
We went on a group couples date during Harrisburg Restaurant Week. We made reservations well ahead of time and were seated almost immediately. It didn’t appear to be extremely busy, but it took 35 minutes for the waiter to come and take our drink orders. Another 23 minutes to get those drinks and nearly 45 minutes for our food. There were really no apologies from management only excuses. The food was good and worth going back, but I will have to think on it.
Excellent food and service
Had a great meal, always fun at Cafe Fresco and Tyler (the bartender) is the BEST in Harrisburg!
Slow service from the bartenders made for frustrating ordering process for the waitress. Took 15 minutes for our first drink and even then not all came out. Got a little better as the time passed. Luckily the food quality/taste was great so bar time was mostly forgotten.
We were seated away from the bar area on a Friday night, so it was a bit quieter. Food was excellent, very well prepared and definitely a different Asian inspired take than other local restaurants. Service was decent, but our server had a habit of spilling things on the floor/table/my companion or this would have a higher rating.
Excellent food and service
Fantastic atmosphere and food. Great upscale spot!!!
Menu looked unique and had some interesting dishes that we tried. They were decent but not outstanding. Service was friendly but REALLY slow.
We love Cafe Fresco and is usually our first choice to find out in downtown Harrisburg for a special treat or celebratory occasion. Food is always fantastic and service excellent! Really a big city restaurant vibe in Harrisburg.
A great happy hour was enjoyed by all 4 of us!
The appetizers were amazing!
Specialty cocktails also very good!!
The service was phenomenal and cocktails were great. the food not so much. The price for meal and quality of food did not match. would go for drinks again but definitely not for dinner.
Hello, My name is Brian, owner of Cafe Fresco Center City. I want to thank you for your feedback and your perspective, and also apologize for your unsatisfactory meal. We take all reviews very seriously and use them as a way to constantly improve - both in the front and back of the house. Could you let me know what you ordered and elaborate on your dissatisfaction with the meal? What didn't you like about it? Was it delivered in a timely manner? Thank you for your time and patronage.
Always a sure thing. We had friends in from DC and didn’t hesitate to take them to Cafe Fresco. The service is always terrific and the food is consistently unique and delicious. The bar does a pretty terrific cocktail too😊My only request would be to somehow get more vegetables on the entree plates.
Wife and I like heading to Cafe Fresco. Food is generally really good. Little noisy but a nice place to eat.
Outdoor seating Friday night was great. Great food, great cocktails, and great energy on the streets. Perfect night out!
The food and service are always excellent. The food is interesting and well executed.
Always love the menu at Cafe Fresco, I refer to it as an eclectic fusion of my favorites. The drunks menu offer some enjoyable drinks outside of my normal classic martini or Manhattan. Staff was wonderful, helpful, and anticipating our next need.
Chicken dumplings are excellent. Fantastic drink menu. Try pomlecheygreentinis. Filet was perfect.
Great place and amazing food!! Can’t wait to go back!
Overall this was very nice. Service was attentive and efficient. (Though it was a slow Monday evening.) We had a couple children with us and they were treated well.
The food was great. I had sriracha salmon and black rice - so good! Very creative drinks too.
Parking is easy - a multi-level lot just across the street.
Check it out.
Excellent food with an Asian twist. Wagyu beef was wonderful, as were brussels sprouts. Calamari were tasty, but next time we'll ask for the sauce to be excluded or provided on the side, as it made the squid soggy. Interesting cocktails, great service.
Love the food. A little loud. Tough to hesr you dats
We went as a group for happy hour which was lively and fun! We had a few of the happy hour appetizers and drinks! I have been craving the brussel sprouts every since! Table service was one of the best I’ve had! The food was beautifully presented and delicious. After dinner we went to Level 2 which was equally as great.
Great food and excellent location in center city.
The servers are always very friendly and knowledgeable.
Delicious! Love the crab cakes and Sea Bass.
Excellent as always. Girlfriend oves to visit here. food and drinks are always on point!
This place was great for our Valentines dinner. The only reason we gave it 4 stars because seating was very tight. It was as if we had to dine with strangers, due to the proximity of the tables. Other than that, it was great. Even though it was very busy, our server, Trevor, took great care of us.
I love this place. We live in York and drive up once a month or so. The ahi tuna is to die for and they always have amazing creme brûlée. Never had a bad meal here!
We were put at a really weird table that was right underneath a draft/vent so we were extremely cold the entire time and our table awkwardly faced the center of the room so we felt like we were on display the entire time and would've liked something a little more personal/private. Our waitress wasn't very friendly either and very short with us. The food was very pricey for the portion size we received (although the quality of it was good). We were hoping for something a little more special for valentines day.
The food and service were great and we really enjoyed our visit. Keep up the good work!
Valentine’s Day, great food, very attentive service during a busy time.
I had an excellent dinner. It was the whole crispy fish. We had a crab dip appetizer that was excellent. My wife had the Lobster risotto and she was just Ok with it.
Sent my parents and they loved it!
Food was great! If you like Martinis they make good ones here. My husband dropped our garage ticket and someone turned it in and we cane back to see if they had it ! It saved us so much money!
Cafe Fresco is our go to for great service, food & drink! They always make me feel welcome & deliver consistently. Trevor is an exceptional server & Tyler makes the best espresso martini .
Great service. Great food. Our party of 6 enjoyed every single item. The Ship app was fantastic. I had the duck breast entree and was Top 5 duck Ive ever had. Will return.
