We usually love Francks, always an exciting menu. The food was fantastic, but our service was very disappointing for the first time. We were approached timely and towards the beginning were checked on regularly but after our appetizer, we weren't checked on once until our soups were brought out, about 20 minutes. Between our soups and main course, another 15 with no service. After being served our main course, it took 45 MINUTES to get our check...she came by once and left a dessert menu and walked away, even though we had mentioned we didn't have room for dessert. It was very upsetting to say the least. She was engaging with all of the other tables around us but we seemed to be pushed in the corner and forgotten about. Again, absolutely love the food and have never had service issues prior but it wasn't the best birthday dinner I have had due to bad service. I felt like we were treated better by our valet than our waitress.

We've been fans of Franck's Tuesday Tasting Menu for over four years and have been there over eighty times during that time span. Franck's tasting menu is always different; I have no idea how Chef Robert Perkins pulls that off but I'm here to tell you he does. This Tuesday's Tempura Shrimp starter was exceptional. Week after week the starter is a conversation topic on our way home.

Having said that, I want to put in a plug for 'regular' menu items we have found memorable. If you like tomatoes and great pastry, you must try Robert's 'Tomato Pie' Applause for the meatloaf and fried chicken as well. The fish of the day has always superb and a 'group' favorite is cheese fondue. Something for everyone.

Great experience. It's a tad spendy but it's worth every penny. The menu changes often so there is always something new to try, you can't go wrong with anything you order. Good wine list, good service including valet parking. It's a smaller restaurant so it's very cozy and you can easily communicate with whomever you're eating with. My wife and I come here on special occasions and will continue to do so. The dishes are creative and delicious, the waiters/waitresses know what they are talking about. 10/10, would recommend.

Amazing French/American fusion restaurant with a daily variable menu along with a few staple entrées. The food is plated with care and portions are very well sized. It's a casual atmosphere with a lively level of sound, but slightly upscale--perfect for a family celebration or dinner date. Service was wonderful and well-paced.

Everything we had was delicious! The Holladay Mule (with bourbon) was tasty and really gingery. Our favorite dish was probably the deep fried Brussels sprouts. So good! Both our entrees were great. We had the Salmon and the Lamb. Too full for dessert! Definitely recommend for special occasions!

Just finished another 'Tasting Tuesday' at Franck's. I was not familiar with the term Kurobuta pork.....but you can find anything on Google!


Heritage breeds are specially raised and heralded for their intensely flavorful meat and fat. In the realm of haute Japanese proteins (all apologies to tofu), wagyu beef, jidori chickens and kurobuta pork reign supreme. But you don’t have to travel to the Far East to experience some of the best pork on menus today. Kurobuta or “black hog” pork comes from the famed Berkshire pig.
Yup, Berkshire and kurobuta are the same thing. And this is one meat where it makes a real difference. Ever had a leathery, dry pork chop or tenderloin you simply didn’t have enough saliva to swallow? Conventional farm-raised pigs tend to lack the incredibly tasty fat that heritage breeds have maintained, and which keeps their meat juicy, tender and, yes, expensive. But if you’re a true fan of pork, heritage is worth every succulent bite.
*
Bottom line is that this pork main course was just outstanding and yes, I've had that tough pork often enough to know the difference. The only thing I'd question in the above 'review' is the comment about being 'expensive'. Our 'Tasting Menu' this evening was four courses for $35. We've been here on Tuesdays over seventy five times in the last four years....it's simply the best deal in the valley.

Food was 'meh' - so close to good but missed the mark. We had:
-Brussels Sprouts: Ok but lots too dry with a burnt taste
-Biscuits: Best part of meal
-App Salad (Romaine with a salsa of fruit and a couple of blue cheese crumbles) & App Soup (Butternut Squash Mole) -Pass on both for sure
-BBQ Lamb Shank (Odd flavor and very stringy)
-Olive Oil Poached Branzino - Fish good, problem was Buttenut squash risotto was half cooked and topped with oil... ewww

Waiter (Mikel) offered no input on menu as "only 3 items stay on menu, the others change daily so I can't give you a description."

Maybe staff should taste the dish nightly.

I am in no rush to return.

We love Franck's. The appetizers are phenomenal, the soups and salads fit the bill, and the entrees are always varied and interesting. The only thing we'd like to see is one or two more desserts with traditional ingredients (not necessarily dull). Desserts consistently appear to be their weakness.

We do come to Franck's for special occasions but our favorite venue is Tuesday's Tasting Menu. This is the best taste and value in the city: four courses, including a superb unadvertised soup.
This week's 'main' was Roasted Utah Trout, Confit Beets, and Celery Root Tempura.

Chef Robert Perkins is the genius that makes the wheels turn but he has plenty of help. A fine kitchen, wait, and managerial staff will have you talking about this place all the way home.

Have yet to be disappointed with each visit to Francks. My wife always orders the soup as they have a new recipe each visit...she's always elated with the taste of them..... I concur.
The ambiance is cozy and well tailored for a classy dining experience that I look forward to each time. I recommend the meatloaf if you haven't tried it, you're in for a treat!
Cheers!

We were visiting family in salt lake and wanted to treat them to a special meal at what was once a great restaurant. Sevice was great but food suffers from an identity crisis. Everything was drenched with honey, balsamic glaze, miso or a combo of the three. It was too much sweet. Its hard to be disappointed by fried chicken but the deconstructed mas saman curry dish with
fried chicken was a too sweet disappointment. If i wanted thai food (which i love) i'd go to a thai restaurant. If you have a sweet tooth and want everything from soup, brussel sprouts, main courses, and dessert to be sweet - this is the place for you. Otherwise, hold off until the chef realizes too much off a good thing is just bad and changes menu back to what francks was known for - rich, delicious french/european classics with a slightly modern twist.

Chef Robert put together an amazing tasting for my husband and I last week when we went for dinner, and every course was mouth-watering. The pork belly was a surprising combination of flavors that went together very well. I'm generally not a fan of pork belly, but I definitely am a fan of Chef Robert's pork belly! Every course was delicious and original. We will be back soon!

As a side note, some of the other reviews mention that there aren't vegetarian options on the menu, and that is true, but you can request a vegetarian entree when you make your reservation.

My husband and I went to celebrate Halloween and they had some special additions, including a Blood Orange - yes, orange, sangria for $7, which was pretty and very good. Our waiter was very informed and helpful and Mike, the host, came to check on our meal and chat. My husband had the fried chicken, which is always delicious. I had salmon, which was good, but I think could have done without the horseradish -maple froth, which was a think was a Halloween addition, reminiscent of a witch's caldron. They asked how I would like it cooked, which I appreciate with fish. Franck's is a beautiful, cozy place, where we always love to eat.
