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
Good service, good food. They only had one of the specials left - lasagna...and it was only 7pm. Not sure what that was about but there were plenty of other options. All the food was good. The wine and drinks were great too.
Franchesca's is always busy, very popular restaurant for a good reason. The food is delicious. Menu has great variety.
We’ve eaten here many many times and have never had a bad meal. However, as usual the service is hit or miss. The bar is notoriously slow getting drinks to the table and our server never checked on us once. Great food sub par service. If you’re in a hurry you’re rolling the dice here.
Menu offerings are excellent. Many to choose from and have never been disappointed in any of the great selections. Good location in the neighborhood and highly recommended
Here to celebrate a romantic birthday date with my husband. ...As always, food was fabulous, and extremely flavorful- and service was very speedy. The staff are super friendly. Walked out with yummy leftovers! Looking forward to our next visit.
I took my wife for an anniversary dinner here and the service, quality of food, and ambiance was all top notch. I highly recommend.
Professional demeanor. Elegantly satisfying food and presentation. Thank you.
We especially love that the noise level was very low and we could have great conversation. The food is always delicious and the menu has great choices. The price is a great value for such a nice place.
This was our second visit to Francesca's Campagna in West Dundee, IL. My husband and I took his sister out to dinner, and none of us was disappointed. The calamari fritti is a delightful appetizer. We split 2 Caesar salads among us. Our entrees were all very good (Linguine Diavola con Pollo, Rigatoni alla Norcina, and Fettuccine alla Bolognese), and the portions are ample, so we each had plenty to take home for the next day. The staff treated my sister-in-law to a tiramisu for her birthday, which was a pleasant surprise. We will certainly return to this restaurant for special occasions, or when we're in the mood for an Italian meal.
Great food,Great service.Come hungry.
