I haven’t been to this restaurant since high school(about 13 years) and things have definitely changed for the better! Food was delicious for both myself and my girlfriend. She’s vegan and the server helped her pick just the right meal. The service was great, price wasn’t too bad for that type of food and it smelled soo good in the whole restaurant! Definitely coming back!

They were running 1/2hr behind the reservation schedule. Got the table at 8:00. The service was extremely poor. Had to ask items multiple times and still didn’t get it. Was charged for drinks that were ordered but never came. They corrected the bill after we pointed out. Have been to this location multiple times without experiencing such poor service. I will think twice before making a reservation on a busy day like Valentine’s. I guess they did not have trained staff on a busy day.

I normally like this restaurant. I’ve been dining there with friends and family for ten years. But our Valentine’s Day dinner was disappointing. The main issue was that we had to wait 30 minutes for our table despite having a reservation and the hostess wasn’t the least bit apologetic about it. When we were finally seated, it was at the worst table in the house, right next to the door to the kitchen. Items were missing our table, including olive oil and napkin/utensils for one of our party, our bread was not replenished, and our daughter’s beverage wasn’t delivered until we reminded our waiter. Our waiter was trying his best, but he was clearly stretched too thin. My husband enjoyed his steak but my striped bass was bland and fishy in parts. Even my daughter’s plain cheese pizza wasn’t very good. I probably would’ve been more likely to overlook the lackluster food and table service if the hostess’s attitude hadn’t already soured the evening for me. I did not feel like a long time valued customer and I don’t know if I will return.

The Valentines Day menu was great! The staff responded well to the volume and didn’t miss a beat! Great job!

It was extremely disappointing, and I would not return. I cannot believe it is a Francesca's restaurant. I have frequented many of such, and all have all been very good. Not this one!
