So glad we made the last night.
A colleague was in the city and had previously gone to the restaurant. I felt the food was ok but overpriced. The server was good, we sat outside and was noisy as to be expected on W Georgia street. Should have stayed in Yaletown as we first planned. Not worth it.
YUM YUM YUM MY HUSBAND CLAIMS THIS IS THE BEST VEAL HE HAS HAD SINCE FLORENCE ITALY. MY DUCK DISH WAS GREAT. NICE AMBIANCE . WE WERE PRETTY CASUAL BUT FELT VERY COMFORTABLE. WAITER WAS NOT INTRUSIVE BUT THERE WHEN WE NEEDED SOMETHING. GOOD SIZED PORTIONS, FOOD CAME HOT TO TABLE IN FAIRLY SHORT TIME. HAVING PUBLIC PARKING RIGHT NEXT DOOR MADE THIS VERY CONVENIENT TO THOSE WHO HAVE SOME MOBILITY CONCERNS. THIS WAS OUR FIRST TIME EATING HERE AND SINCE WE LIVE IN CALIFORNIA WE CAN"T RETURN SOON BUT WE WOULD RECOMMEND TO ANY VANCOUVER RESIDENT. ONE CAUTION IS THAT TRAFFIC WAS HEAVY SUNDAY EVENING WHEN WE WENT TO DINNER AND STREETS OF VANCOUVER HAVE MANY ONE WAYS AND PEDESTRIANS ONLY SO MAKE SURE YOU GIVE YOURSELF ENOUGH TRAVEL TIME AND KNOW EXACTLY WHERE YOU ARE GOING.
Very good experience. 3rd time visiting this restaurant. The outside heating lamp was out of gas and they were able to accommodate us and move us inside once it got cold.
No complaints.....all very good.
The food was very good, Patio is ok. One problem, We informed our weiter that we were using our Sunday, "five and after" half price reduction. However, we were told after we ordered, that one of the Items on the Pasta List was not eligible for the, "five and after" half price reduction. We think that lacks class and speaks poorly for the Restaurant.
My group has been coming to Francesco's for almost 20 years. We love the location, food, the wine, the location, the people who run the place, and of course the city.
Service was good really go the extra mile
Always great food and service! A must try in Vancouver for Italian food!!!
The food and service was outstanding!
Great dinning experience. Excellent food. Excellent service.
Excellent experience as always. We've been to Francesco's many times and it never disappoints. It's old school Italian service with a fantastic menu, good wines and always a pleasant time. We've never had anything but a good experience here.
The first time my wife and I visited this restaurant was ten years ago and found the food to be ok and the service subpar. We thought it was time to give it another chance. Our experience was almost exactly the same, not great food and ok service. On the positive side the linguine was cooked perfectly and our waiters wine recommendation spot on. There were however a few missteps. The veal in the veal masala I ordered was tender but bland and seasonless. I had to add salt to wake it up. We ordered a bottle of sparkling water for the table but instead of asking if we wanted a second bottle when it was done our waiter dumped tap water into my half finished glass of sparkling. As my wife succinctly put it, cute but not too bright.
Overall the place didn't impress us. As there are lots of better restaurants around downtown Vancouver, we won't be back. Maybe we'll try again in another ten years
All around great food and restaurant. With the Groupon, it's very good value.
The appy and desserts were good but the main were more than underwhelming., plus the place was very noisy.
Great service, there were 4 of us, 4 different meals but all the food taste great! Good Italian food, good portions, not too big, not too small.
