Staff was superb!
We were surprised about how the restaurant has declined.
We have been there many times before without issues. This visit was horrible.
The food was undercooked, the wait staff refused to serve bread after requesting it twice.
The waiter commented on how much food we left on our plates and was rude.
The noise level was so bad that conversation was difficult.
We will not return.
Good as usual! We always enjoy our dinners there!
Went there on Mother's Day and had late/brunch/dinner. Have been there many times before but this was our first time for a buffet style dinner. It was much better than I expected!! Food selection was great and servers were prompt!! Would recommend this to anyone.
Mother’s Day Buffet. At 4 pm. Some dishes were empty. Salad dressings in bowls not chilled. Cold shrimp was warm. Had to ask for utensils and napkin. Seemed like there was no wait staff only bus boys. Tables crowded together. Always loud. Not as clean as it used to be. Used to frequent all the time including a 40 person private party. Doubt I’ll be back
Usually a good place but appeared overwhelmed for the crowd. Still I will be back.
I will preface this review by stating that I met my wife at this restaurant and we had our wedding dinner there also
When deciding where to take my wife who is a new mother, my mother and my mother in law I figured Francesca’s would be ideal as we have such history there.
We had a table of 4 adults and our one year old son. We were seated at the very opening of the dining room the actual middle of the entrance! Within five minutes of sitting down, my chair was bumped into five times and I had to duck waiters and other staff whipping around.
I could not handle it anymore so did something I never do and complained. I asked the waitress if we could move tables. The waitress was actually excellent and went to get the hostess and then the manager I am guessing came over and told us that basically it was Mother’s Day ( as if I did not know ) and it will be the same everywhere. So basically we could not change tables and so it was the worst Mother’s Day celebration that I can ever recall and I was looking to make it a very special one.
The food was really good and the waitress was nice and cordial, but the attitude of the restaurant towards my request and their preparation for such a big day was awful! I will not be going back !
Despite having reservations, we had a bit of a wait (greater than 30 minutes), and the waiting area was very crowded. Inexplicably, the restaurant's staff chose to cut through the waiting area, which made it even more unpleasant. Nevertheless, once seated, service and the food were great.
Food was great as always. Service was excellent.
The noise level was off the chart. We could not hear each other. This is after asking to be moved once as we were between two extraordinary loud groups. The back room really needs some sound absorbing work. I realize it’s an energy of happiness but everyone we know talks about not eating in the backroom it’s to noisy. Come on ... other Franchesca s do not have that issue.
We had a 6:30 reservation for 2 and walked in about 6:35. We gave our name and were told "ok.". While we were waiting, another party of 2 came in and were asked if they had a reservation. They said no, and were told it would be about a 15 minute wait. After that, another party of 2 came in and were seated right away outside... we were not even given that option. Next a party of 5 was seated, and then the party of 2 with NO RESERVATION! When the hostess came back to seat us I inquired about why they were seated before us and she told me "it wasn't a big deal, we were basically getting seated at the same time." It actually was a big deal to me since the table we were seated at was open the entire time and we were seated 15 min after our reservation time and AFTER people without reservations!
Excellent. My husband was given a cream puff with a candle for his bday.
Great food. Had the French trimmed pork chops. Absolutely delicious.
I would say this location is not up to the standards of other locations. Service good, but salads were soaked in dressing, pasta was tough and short ribs lacked flavor.
It seems like we always have to wait even though we have a reservation. But we didn’t wait too long this time and say in the main dining area. Awesome food and service!!
We each enjoyed our meals this evening. We had the Australian sea bass and the pasta, shrimp,scallops combination. Everything from the bread to the salads to the main meal are good. Our service was a little slow. Although our waiter checked back with us frequently, our dinner was almost two hours. We’ll be back!
One of my favorite places! It was beautiful the year I went on Christmas Eve and it was snowing.
Wine was way over priced!
Our visit was a birthday celebration. The food was very good. The salads were great, and we had the salmon and the cod. Our dessert was also very tasty. The service was average, nothing particularly bad, but not outstanding. Definitely looking forward to going back when the weather is nice to sit out on the patio.
It was a Saturday night so I understand they were busy, but that’s why we had made reservations. We have two little kids so it difficult to wait with them especially since they don’t have a food waiting area other than just in front of the door, and we’re not taking them to the bar. We arrived promptly and weren’t seated until 20 minutes the past our reservation time. We had to ask for a high chair twice even though we requested one at check in. Someone bumped into our table and spilled our water as soon as we were seated and we needed all new menus, but had to ask for them 3 times and than our waitress came a minute after we got our menus not giving us any time to look at them.
One of our favorite places, food is always great and the service exceptional as well.
I wasn't overly impressed as everyone raves about this place. Food was good not great
Ambiance was nice...Restaurant served its purpose but there are better Italian restaurants in the area.
Late seating; had to ask for bread; dining room could of had at least 3 fewer tables. Waiter was ok but had too many tables
Great menu and decor makes for city-like dining. However, the service is not as welcoming to a dining experience, rather solely having dinner.
Food and Sergio, our server were very good, however, the noise level was a bit high, making it difficult for conversation.
Excellent as always, favorite restaurant by far!!
Our service was wonderful... The food was perfect - from a superb medium rare steak to the house made pappardelle... Outstanding
Our chicken was way too salty and the caesar salad was a bit too creamy...overall a nice place and good wait staff very friendly but a bit rushed (it was a busy night), will not be our go to spot for Italian dinners.
Monday, mid morning lunch with friend. The Wait staff was attentive, courteous, efficient and friendly. All of the lunch items on the menu sounded delicious but I asked if they would make two of my favorite "comfort" dishes and was accommodated. The chicken was perfectly cooked in both dishes. One of my favorite local places.
The food is delicious and the service is great. The only problem with this restaurant is that when it is full of people it is extremely loud. We moved our seat three times because we couldn't hear each other unless we were yelling.
The service is always great. The food is always outstanding. The noise level is a little intense, but otherwise this restaurant is perfect.
We love Francescas and this is our go to restaurant in Frankfurt. The wait staff was excellent and food is always delicious! Our one issue was with the young hostess cool when we ask for a different table gave us a bit of an attitude and lead us to another table in a different room put the menus down on the table and walked off when we were still several tables away. I noticed one or two of the other hostesses doing the same which I consider quite rude. We informed the manager so hopefully this improves in the future.
Service was fantastic, a little noisy as more patrons came in. Food was big quality and quick.
Easter Buffett wasn’t worth the $40/person
Great beffet for Easter with ham and prime rib, spinach ravioli salmon, great desserts. I loved the rare prime rib but needed a steak kife not a butter knife to cut, I am sure they will include dthat next ime. Sals was great was well
They didn’t have any menu for Easter but the buffet was very good! Service was a bit slow because they were really busy! Besides the crowded space, it was enjoyable! I can see why they were so busy- the food was great! Stand outs were the cheese and spinach ravioli with cream sauce and powdered sugar cookies with cinnamon!
Great Brunch selection of fresh food, cold and hot dishes, salads , meats, and desserts.
Very crowded, tables too close
Easter Sunday family/friends happy mood
Food was very tasty. Easy to eat too much. The price of the buffet is high. The restaurant was very crowded and loud. My ears were ringing when I left. I will Go Back, But Not For The Buffet.
We had heard great things about Francesca’s Fortunato for years. We finally made it for their Easter Brunch, and we’re so glad we did! With a wonderful assortment of brunch items and with Karen as our server, we had a phenomenal dining experience! Plans have already been made to come back soon!
As usual the food and service were fantastic. I’ve been VERY disappointed lately though, in the ambiance. The music is very loud, to the point of annoyance and it’s not the Sinatra type music they played before. It’s like techno club music that has loud beats to it. It’s incredibly annoying and the main reason why when I’m done with my gift cards I’m not sure how much I’ll be frequenting. This is a shame because Francesca’s was always a favorite of mine. I’ve heard many other diners complain of the same thing.
