We have been a few times and always leave with the same response. The menu is boring and the food is ok. We had the calamari and it was better than average. I had the linguine special with Maine lobster. It was ok. My husband had the filet and he was not wowed. The service was great though.

My husband and I go to Francesca's at 95th St. at least once a month . We just love going there. Everything is always so good and I don't think there's another restaurant that knows how to make fish like francesca's always so tasty and never fishy, yum sooo good.😃

Love Francesca's but the past two times I have been there, it just hasn't lived up to my expectations.
This time, the waiter was rarely around, we were never given specials, never given a choice of soup or salad, two brownish, ice cold salads just arrived at our table.
$14 for a very small portion of calamari. Seemed much more commercial than unique.
I love Francesca's, so Ill give them another try, but they have changed. I did notice it is now referred to as FRG, so I wonder if there has been a change in ownership.

The only issue we had was that our entire section would get cold whenever someone would come through the revolving door. I felt sorry for the table right next to the door as they were elderly and had to be twice as cold as we were.

We had a Christmas family get together--we experienced car problems, getting the gifts in the car issues and traffic nightmares. We were horribly late, but Francesca's staff TOTALLY took care of us, despite the changes! I can't thank you guys enough! And the dinner was absolutely DELISH--veal with polenta! Perfect Christmas!!

Needed a place half way between my house and relative in Indiana. I’d been to Francesca’s in elmhurst and thought this would be good. Restaurant had a few Christmas lunches going on but the place wasn’t crowded. The food was good but the service was a little slow. Not sure what happened to our waiter when we were ready to pay so had to leave cash versus credit card.

Server was great, attentive and personable. Busser needs more training. He took food plates without asking if we were done and did not replace the used knife from appetizer with a clean knife for dinner course. Little thing matter otherwise we have never had a bad experience at this Francsecsa. Thank you for your excellent options on the Southside. Not many choices left.

As mentioned in previous reviews, I wish the word "Outstanding" could be replaced with "Excellent" and then I would mark it. There is rarely anything in this world that I would name as outstanding but would view as excellent. Outstanding is too much of a superlative to feel comfortable for a rating. We did have an excellent time, the food was excellent, as well as the wait service. All were above very good; all were excellent.

Our family of four was there for a 40th Birthday, it was Monday after Thanksgiving so it was pretty empty, thats why I can figure out why they would put another party of 5 guys right next to us. It went from this is perfect to "sorry what you say ". The food was great, our server Justin was great, they gave us a desert with a candle for our Birthday person.

Late afternoon Thanksgiving meal. Classic entree, 5 thick slices, roasted turkey, nicely seasoned. Savory sage and celery dressing. Steamed green beans, french cut with almonds.
Cranberry relish with tiny, whole berries, tart and not too sweet. Rough mashed potatoes, lightly seasoned with a hint of garlic. Accompanied by a 2015 Sicilian light red (Sedara Nero d'Avola) which paired well with the roasted turkey and dressing. Handmade, couple-sized pumpkin pie topped it off. A very satisfying, traditional style, thanksgiving dinner of ample proportions.

Our lunch table for seven was ready for us when we arrived. The service was attentive and the food delicious. We ordered the calimari appetizer and several entrees that ran the gamut of the menu, including the halibut, burger and lunchtime pizza. The portions were just right, if not large, but one of my parents found their Chicken alla Limon lacking in flavor.

I wish we had been able to enjoy the desserts, but we had birthday cake waiting for us at home. I would certainly go back again, but I wish I could have seen risotto on the lunchtime menu

The dining room was cold during our visit. Most of our party wore our coats drapped over us because we were seated below a vent. There was a odd smell when I first walked in. It seemed to get better after awhile. Besides these things, the food and service was good overall. Maybe an off night. I've had good visits in the past here.
