We started with the delicious asparagus salad with lemon and some wonderfully flavorful blue cheese. The wine was reasonable and delightful. We both had the linguini with seafood which was just terrific!
The waitress was helpful and lovely. What a good experience in that modest neighborhood.
Great dining staple.
WE were celebrating a 13th birthday and the staff fawned over her appropriately. The food, as always, we cooked perfectly, served hot and delicious. The desserts were to die for. Brought the birthday girl a special dessert and she loved it.
Never disappointed. As a former Chicagoan I have to visit at least once for a great meal. The service is always outstanding.
We were going to an event at Loyola, had an early dinner. As always, Francesca's was perfect. I had their signature roasted chicken, spouse had rigatoni with sausage, split a salad. Real bonus: 1/2 price wine on Thursdays, any bottle under $75. This is our first time at this location, but have eaten at the others. Love the food.
I was not happy with my last visit at Mia Francesca. I have eaten there before and had a pleasant experience but my dinner with my fiancé fir Dinner on Monday April 9 was very disappointing.
Had trouble finding my reservation.
Candle on our table was the only one not lit. I asked the waiter so we could see the dessert menu and then it went out.
Service was slow. Had to ask for dessert menus.
Had to ask for bill. Took a long time to get.
When it came it was for 107 dollars instead of 64 which was the cost of the Monday night special. Had to take it up to host. The waiter said that he computer figured it wrong. Took a long time to get to he correct bill back. I told the waiter to take 60 out of my credit card and gave him a 20 to take out the remaking four dollars.
He came back later to ask me if I wanted to take 60 out of a credit card and the remaining out of the 20.00.
I checked a coat and gave checkout to waiter and a tip. It took a while before Ingit my quote. My fiancé left early Ky so he could put more money in the parking meter because he veryrhing was taking a lot by time.
We were very frustrated with our poor service.
I mentioned this to the manager and he said they only had two reservations (even though the waiter had trouble finding it) and wan’t exoecting a large crowd which they ended up having. But he didn’t offer anything.
The waiter we had waited on me when I had lunch with a friend and did a great job.
But his service on Monday was exceedingly poor.
I am not sure I will go back even though I gave eaten there many times.
Start to finish: just excellent!
Food was great. Very consistent good place.
Great place to get a quality meal. Thursday is 1/2 price bottles of wine!
Excellent food and very excellent service. Nice quiet restaurant!
Always have a good experience at Francsca's Bryn Mawr. Waiter was very tolerant of our little boy.
Francesca's is our local; we often go for happy hour and a nibble during the week. It is delightful to have a place of such quality and friendliness in the neighborhood because it impresses friends when they come to join us for a meal and we can walk home after! The staff is great, and there are so many regulars it is sort of like Cheers. Perhaps more like Cheers meets fine dining. The pastas are yummy, polpette divine, lentils & spinach mouthwatering. A good wine list, nice beer selection, generous cocktails.
We have a cousin's lunch several times a year and we came here for the fist time. We got first class service and even free dessert because one of the dishes was late coming out and also the bread was a bit delayed. This is the kind of service that deserves recognition. We plan to have our next lunch here.
Really great food and service!
We shared three delightful starters (carpaccio, arrugla salad, & calamari), and our entrees (2 chicken dishes, cod, & a seafood pasta) were all up to Francesca's usual high standard. But our server was not at all attentive to our table, which, fortunately, has not been the case on our many previous visits.
Great brunch menu and $5.00 mimosas and bloody’s
Always good and exceptional service.
Consistently good food all the time. Friendly, attentive service, a neighborhood gem.
Delicious! Great service.
Went to dinner with another couple. Very nice ambience, quiet enough to hear each other clearly. Solid food.
Lovely dining experience! We were there for my daughters 30th birthday celebration.
Experience, service and food was amazing!!!
Great Sunday Brunch options - great location and perfect for family brunch
Host, servers, and bus-staff all go out of their way to make their guests feel welcome and pampered! Delicious food, excellent service, cozy atmosphere—what’s not to like?
Pasta was not "al dente." Bolognese sauce was bland. Server was uninterested.
Linguine Mare e Monte was the better of the dishes served to our table.
Excellent service, accommodating to our special requests and made sure we were taken care of. Excellent meals, familiar but with a subtle twist to make it fresh. Great for a get-together, or a casual date.
Excellent! Love it ! Glad they are in our neighborhood.
Francesca's is such a consistent and yummy place to dine, quiet enough for great conversation and equally lovely food. Recommend :)
Loved the ambience have been to several other Francesca's this is my favorite had a great meal and a greatvwaitress!
Beautiful restaurant. Love the ambiance.
Very unique and special place. This place feels like a special celebration is always going on, fun vibe yet warm and cozy at the same time. Perfect atmosphere for a great dining experience.
Another delicious meal. Outstanding calamari. Super service. We'll be back-again and again.
Valentines dinner. The place was packed but we were seated right on time for our reservation. The server was great.
Valentine's Day meal. Francesca's is simply the best.
The food is okay, drinks were pretty bad, and the service was extremely slow. Their extra “Valentine’s touches” were pretty lame - balloons and overripe chocolate covered strawberries filled with strawberry goo. We won’t be going back.
Valentine’s Day seated at our favorite booth and had a delicious meal. Glad we got an early reservation, as it got super crowded . Popular spot, well deserved!
Excellent food. Always an absolute treat to eat there.
We did not know they served Brunch and were pleasantly surprised by their delicious menu. We will be back soon!
I would absolutely recommend the FRG groupm. Not this location. I have been a regular of this restaurants numerous locations for 17 years. I have never had such horrible service, rude, crude patrons sat next to us, and sub par food. Usually I thoroughly enjoy my experience because the intimate, attentive, thorough service. I will still go to Francesca's but not this one.
We love Francesca's! The welcoming atmosphere, excellent food, and outstanding service make it a standout!
One of the best brunch options in Edgewater.
