The service & the food are always excellent! We come here at least twice a month, never disappointed:)
Great service but not bothered.
Great food served quickly and hot.
Food is really good. Staff is not at highest level. Acceptable but nothing special. Prices are way too high. $17 for a glass of house wine and $12 for a shot of booze. We all got pastas and still spent too much for a quick family of four dinner.
Great management that is the reflected in the servers.
The wine list has great values in it
The food I really believe is better than the other Francescas . We have eaten at over half a dozen of the franchises starting with Lincoln Park over 12 yrs ago
Francesca's Food and service are consistently great. This is my go-to restaurant when arranging dinners with coworkers or business partners. There is something on their menu for everyone.
Liked being able to make a dinner reservation within one hour of arriving. Food was very fresh and tasted like home cooking.
My fiance and I went here on a whim with another couple after having both tried it before and thinking it was just alright. To our surprise everything was fantastic. We both ordered a shrimp pasta dish and the risotto. The service was good, the food was great, and so were the cappuccinos. We did not find it too loud but it does get very crowded on Friday and Saturday nights.
We went for a dinner date on a Friday night. We had a reservation and had to wait a few minutes before we were seated, which worked fine so we could get a glass of wine at the bar. Our sever and the rest of the staff was excellent. We shared a couple of dishes, none of which I would necessarily get again (I can't even remember what we had), but I would come back and try other dishes.
The most disappointing thing is the menu is so boring. The good news is they will prepare items not on the menu if possible . The other night every pasta came with tomato sauce of some kind. I find it too salty The bread is delicious. The restaurant week 3 course dinner was a great value.
Never a bad meal, the fish preparations are my favorite. Entire staff always very friendly.
We really enjoyed our dinner on Tuesday, great pork chop and pasta dinners. Nice of the kitchen to allow up to split our dinner salad. Terrific wines by the glass, and service was perfect. I think Dennis was our server, but the bus help was great also!
We love Francesca's - it's a gem in the Western Suburbs. We have been there many times and have never had a bad meal or bad service. Super friendly staff. Try it - you'll love it, too!
Fun place to come anytime. Wish the bar stayed open a little later on Friday and Saturday
night... 10:30-11:00. Its nice to stay at the restaurant to have an after dinner drink.
Great menu & service
The chef created a special version of entree for me due to my extremely low sodium diet. Entree was delicious. Nice to know I have someplace nice to dine and still stick to my restrictions. Waiter was attentive.
The menu is hand written it changes every day.. food is outstanding with Big portions!!! We come here all the time.. definitely a neighborhood GEM!!!
We went to Francesca's to celebrate a birthday dinner. The service and food was good. The room we were in was very loud and it was difficult to have conversations.
Our children got us a gift certificate for this restaurant to celebrate our anniversary. What a great place. Delicious food,great service and cozy ambience. It turned out to be a special evening
I made a reservation for 6 three days in advance. We were given the best table in the main dining area. This was at least my 6th visit to Francesca's Amici over recent years and the food quality has never disappointed. In my view, this restaurant gives very good value
Excellent food and servers as usual. Love, love the barramundi fish!
Great food in a very comfortable upscale environment.
Friday night dinner with a table at the window..great for people watching. Food is always delicious, good portion sizes, great variety. Menu changes daily. A great neighborhood restaurant.
I love the Francescas chain! But the one in elmhurst is my least favorite of them all. I have eaten at several locatons
Great service, consistent, delicious food and great ambiance. They are always willing to customize our order - with two picky eaters they are so accommodating. I love that they offer two sizes for wine by the glass. Love this place!
Requested window bar seat @ it was spot on in the window
Bruschetta was a great starting point. Roasted chicken. We mixed & matched pastas & sauces without a problem. That on a Saturday nite & our waiter rolled with us. Go & Enjoy
I love this restaurant. I have been several times and it never disappoints. The food is always fresh and very good quality. The service is attentive without being intrusive. This particular evening we were in a room away from the main dining room and the noise volume was considerably lower and quite pleasant.
As noted, I made a reservation at this restaurant through your service for an annual family get together. I was very surprised when I got there to be told there were no tables, since all their rooms were booked with parties. We were directed that we could sit at the bar. I was told that, although I had a confirmed reservation, they had no control over Open Table noting there were "open tables." I was very disappointed - with your service and the communication with the restaurant. Obviously, one can't trust a confirmed reservation through your service. The restaurant was very accommodating, though, to comp us for some of the meal.
Really great food, terffic service staff (Dennis @ Elmhurst location).
Comfortable bar area, great wine options.
Love that they have a GF menu! Food is always great at Francesca's. Definitely coming back.
Went to the Spaghetti Day on Thursday January 4, 2018. Terrible portions for three people. Food was not good at all. We were crammed into a room with large parties talking loudly from one end of the table to the other. We couldn't hear each other. Terrible, we have gone to this restaurant for many things to celebrate. We have attended many of these specials. They are getting worse each time. Husband said we are never will go back. Bad quality of food for the price.
We used to be regulars at Francesca's. We always thought the food was great. But our last 3 dining experiences there, the service has been horrible. It has become clear to us that we are always being rushed, so that they can turnover the table. The final insult came on our most recent dinner there, the staff removed my wife's salad plate before she was done. There are many choices in town. We are done with this place.
Can’t beat the service by the wait staff. Happy hour menu is excellent for value.
Love this place! Cocktails are great! I’m very picky & they accommodate every time! Food is sooooo good! Why go elsewhere? Every meal I’ve had there is delicious! Employees are friendly! They remember you so you feel special!
New Years Eve
Probably the best lobster bisque I've ever had - excellent lobster linguine.
Chino and Robert took great care of me. The home made soup, crab cake and side of pasta made for a perfect lunch. Complimented by a martini, which was the best I’ve ever had. The holiday decorations are lovely and have just the right amout of dazzle.
Great place for celebrating a special occasion. The staff was very accommodating, the atmosphere was cozy, and we felt comfortable lingering at the table visiting.
The food was as good as usual, but our server was the best ever!
