One of our all-time favorite restaurants but was called earlier today by someone affiliated with the restaurant's team and they told me the restaurant has now been permanently closed, so sad!
Closed with absolutely no forewarning - only a phone call the very day we were supposed to dine. The other Francesca’s in Barrington is just to noisy to have a comfortable dining experience so it looks like we’re out of luck visiting any in the Francesca’s chain....very disappointed.
Very disappointed that this location closed on December 26, 2017 without a warning to their employees. Our favorite restaurant in the area. A loss to our community as well.
I am so sad that this restaurant has closed. (Especially after purchasing a few hundred dollars worth of gift cards!) Dumping the news on the staff at the end of a shift is just lousy.
The food is amazing, the staff is great too. Dan, I'll miss your skills! I have never had a bad experience here. I wish the staff best wishes in their new adventures. We loved the neighborhood location. We always saw someone we knew when we visited - probably 3 times/month. I realize there are locations in Barrington and St Charles but those are a hike.
i'm very disappointed.
Great food and service as always. The hospitality is always there. The wait staff is very knowledgeable. Just a very good dining experience.
Not enough waiters. Took over an hour for order to be taken and meal served.
The great food is only surpassed by the great service.
The hostess didn't believe we had a reservation because he couldn't find it. Portion sizes were not very big. Nothing included like a salad on the side. Gnocchi literally came out of a bag, was boiled and has sauce put on top...for $17.00. Ravioli meal has about 7 average sized raviolis with sauce. Also too expensive. Bus boy did more work than the waitress and was very nice.
The food was excellent. We had a pasta with shrimp, scallops and clams . Portions were large. We also had a lobster bisque, which was excellent. Cute place. Would recommend.
Place is a bit tight in seating , but the food never disappoints me. Always make a point to stop here when in Chicago. Service was good as the pour on the drinks were poured fairly for a good level restaurant
