This is such a staple and always the best. Great vibes and people. Unreal food!
Food was great, just took a long time for the food to come out
Tried and true place for a date
Everything was great. Very enjoyable and satisfying experience.
We had Angie as our server this evening and dinner and service were outstanding!
The food and dessert was super delicious!
Great food, decent service. The restaurant did a reasonable job handling Valentines Day crowds, but it was still a good 15 min wait after our reservation to be seated. The main dining room is very charming, but the secondary dining room, is really little more than a generic party/banquet room, so I think I might save this for normal dining and go to a different location, like Naperville, for holidays.
We had a very nice Valentine dinner, good food, good service, reasonable prices.
Valentine’s Day date was a success. No wait time with reservation, great service and great date. Thank you
Valentines Day dinner. Food was fine...service was awful. On top of that, we received not one but two drink glasses with lipstick on them. The manager’s compensation was discounting our bottle of wine by 50%. We were using a gift card and were hoping we would’ve used it all as we will not go back again.
While it was Valentines Day, and I understand that this is a busy time. The service was terrible, which probably to do with the kitchen. We did not see our waitress fro 10 minutes after being seated. She took our drink orders. My wife got hers promptly. It took 15 minutes for me to get a soft drink. The salads finally arrived after a 35 minute wait. (they did remove them from the bill). From the time we ordered our meal to when it finally arrived was about 45 minutes. Two tables that were seated after us had finished their meals by time ours was served. We did not bother to hang around for desert!
Food was great; sat by the bar area and the door wasn't closing when people came it so was a tad chilly.
The service was a little slow because they were very busy with Valentine’s Day, but the server was clearly trying. The food was outstanding. We will definitely be back.
We are always treated extremely special. Loved our server Angie!
The meals are always great. The waitstaff are always superb!
Went here to celebrate my daughters birthday (even though she’s only 4..... it was an excuse for us to go out). Our server was fantastic. I ordered the filet special... finally a steak that came out perfectly prepared. You can’t go wrong here.
The food is just wonderful at Francesca's and it never disappoints. We love to come and celebrate special occasions here and really appreciate the good service and friendliness that we encounter every time we are there. Thank you for a great evening, Francesca's!
I have been to a few Francesca's and always love the food. I appreciated the server here though especially because he was not OVERLY attentive, which I find annoying. He respected our desire to talk and relax. The decor is lovely here too.
Everything went great
Made reservations and still waited 15 minutes. Seated at small table where wife and I kept kicking each other under table. Servers were good, even though after dinner I had coffee and asked for a refill and she forgot. I ordered half chicken that was rubbery and not completely cooked and flavor not the same as how I last remembered but ok.
Chicken was raw & our service was horrible!
Good food always
Great time. Andy is the best server and bartender
My husband & I go to Francescas often. The food is so good. The carpaccio is the best we’ve ever had. Muscles are great too. Spicy sauce but not overpowering. Wine is also a great value. I usually have one of there pastas which is always good but last night I tried there salmon with tomatoes over spinach. Wonderful. We always ask for Dennis as he does such a great job. Always explains the specials etc.. We always feel so at home there. Not too noisy with some really nice background music. There desserts are great as well but we are usually too full to have any. Lol. PS. They have a really good Happy Hour Monday to Friday.
Super tasty and convenient, great lunch specials. It seemed that the owners or managers were in and they stopped by the table to see how the experience was going. Appreciate the personal service and attention...
It was cold every time the door opened. The waiter was not present very often. He never asked us how the food was after he served it. The food was excellent and the portion size was good.
Love the food at Francesca's. They are always adding something new. Dennis is amazing. Very attentive.
Andy was a great server
Food was good
Always consistently good service and good food and wine. We are regulars
This restaurant knows how to cultivate a quiet, civilized atmosphere in its whit-tablecloth seats. The food was delicious, featuring tasty pasta with scallops for me and a superbly roasted half-chicken for my wife. The regular bruschetta with goat cheese was delicious, too.
Food is always exceptional and service really done well!
It was nice
Always a pleasure, service was exceptional again !!
Great food and happy hour prices!
Every meal we have had there has been delicious! Also, tried the Happy Hour and was very pleased with the options and portion sizes.
Had a small private room for a group of ten.
Great evening. Despite a busy holiday night serve was excellent, we were seated on time and the food was excellent. there was a fight over the leftovers the next day!
Food was outstanding and the service was impeccable. A wonderful evening on New Years Eve which can very often be very hectic and crowded at restaurants. Our meal was very relaxed in a festive atmosphere.
New Year’s Eve. Great time.
