Franco's Metro Restaurant & Bar
My husband and I came in for dinner with out of state family on 5/17/19. Reservations were made via OpenTable.
The hostess was very friendly greeting us as soon as we entered. Our waiter was Alex and he was excellent. He took our drink order and went through the dinner specials . He spoke clearly and slowly which we appreciated.
Every one was very attentive to us, even bringing steaming water so we could warm the baby’s bottle.
The food was excellent. The duck appetizer was great. I would not normally order it but my brother did and I am glad he did.
We all enjoyed our entrees. The veal and shrimp with cognac sauce dinner special was outstanding. It should be a regular on the menu.
From appetizers to coffee and desert the food was outstanding.
We will return
Great Italian cuisine, the best in North Jersey! Staff is very friendly and accommodating.
We had dinner at Franco's Metro Restaurant on Friday night. The food was wonderful. Great service. We got our table quickly and our waiter was very good. We are definitely returning for another fantastic meal!!
Vodka sauce is so delicious! They have many gluten free options which is extremely helpful for my new dietary restrictions!
Food is always excellent . Good portions size and great tasty specials beside the menu. Always gives you bread and garlic knots. They always come to the table with water in a bottle. My husband and I had clams with linguine plenty of tender clams and enough of the sauce with clams. My nephew had a great steak said it was as good as the steak he has in Texas.
Franco's always makes you feel like your home. The food is fantastic and the team is always welcoming! This is a must try resturant in Fort Lee!
Always enjoyable. Friendly service always looking to please. Great walnut apple salad. .excellent margarita.. enjoyed immensely.
Food and service are both excellent
we had such an enjoyable time! we highly recommend sitting at the bar for some great conversation and very friendly bar tenders!
The service was incredible. Out waiter never wrote anything down and had suggestions for us. The food was outstanding. I loved it and will definately go back.
Great dining for a casual Italian meal.. great salad with apples, cheese, nuts, cranberries, greens. Love the Margarita pizza!! To top it off, the affagato was delicious.
If you’re looking for a casual restaurant that serves fine-dining quality dinners, has a friendly and professional wait staff, and a welcoming owner, then please go to Franco’s Metro in Fort Lee. I work in Brooklyn 4-6 times a month so I stay at a hotel in Ft. Lee for convenience. My husband and I were looking for a restaurant outside of the hotel and found this little gem tucked away in a strip mall on Bergen Blvd. We dine at Franco’s at least once, sometimes twice a week and have never been disappointed. Growing up in Italian households, we can vouch for the freshness of their ingredients and the quality of their cooking. We highly recommend this restaurant for its value, friendly atmosphere, and wonderful food.
Excellent and consistent food and service. It's always a pleasure!!
Excellent!!! Strongly recommended
Great time, as always at Franco’s
francos is an excellent local Italian restaurant -food is very good and all else is excellent
The food was good, standard Italian affair. The ambience is not what the picture shows. No table cloths and no frills. One half is a pizzeria and the other half is a reasonable restaurant you can take the kids out to.
Franco's is a gem and should not be missed for a great dining experience. The staff is welcoming and friendly. The food is always consistent and a great variety to choose from.
I love the friendly feel of this place and the Red Sangria is excellent!
The food is excellent at Franco's Metro. It is very tasty and fresh. The service is also outstanding.
Dinner on New Year’s Eve. Waiter seemed rushed waited for drinks for about 10 min. Food was ok
This cozy restaurant is perfect for a great Italian dinner. We love the pasta and mushroom entree...excellent. Delicious garlic rolls...nice family owned dining.
We were a group of nine for two birthday celebrants; the appetizers for all on the table were great (calamari especially good); the main courses were served all at one time; desserts great and even two cupcakes with candles for the birthday people (and a pretty good rendition of "Happy Birthday" by the waiters!) All in all a very nice evening.
Good evening with good basic food.
This is not a fancy restaurant but all nine of us in our party thought that the food was excellent.
I went with my two friends and the service was good although at one point we felt we were rushed. The food isn't worth it. I ordered the flounder topped with crab meat. The crab meet is from a can and the flounder was dry and tasteless.
Franco’s is always easy to access and the food is consistently good. Great place for dining casually with friends and family!
Excellent food and service as usual
Special seafood entree was exceptional!
Great food and service. A neighborhood gem!
Always great-been going for years and the food and wait staff are consistently tops.
Solid and reliable neighborhood spot. Food is always delicious.
i like Francos for its good food at reasonable prices.The service is always attentive. But the noise level at times is disturbing and although I requested table in the back it was facing the kitchen which was unpleasant.
Used to be one of our favorite local Italian restaurants in the neighbor & have been dining there for many times! Food quality have been steadily drowning since changing their menus about a year or so & last weekend just validated when my wife & I had dined there and most likely will not go back again! Had their spaghetti & meatballs which I ordered the pasta cooked al dente but was well over cooked. The meatballs which were supposed to be homemade were actually the commercial frozen meatballs that you find in the supermarket's freezer. Veal parmesan were tough as rubber as if they were already cooked and just re-heated in the microwave with marinara sauce and cheese on top! Very sad to have experienced these unappetizing food quality at one of our favorites past restaurant as they used to be so much better...
Best Food in New Jersey and outstanding staff
Food is always fantastic. Service is top notch. Love coming back to Franco's.
Always enjoyable. We sat for a long time to talk with friends and no one bothered us.
Very good food. Everything was delicious. Wonderful and friendly service.
I found this place on TripAdvisor and I agree with the high ratings it received! The service started out a little slow (our waiter was also the bartender) - BUT service was professional and nice. No points lost there. And oh my - the FOOD was AWESOME. Our dishes came out piping hot, well-seasoned, delicious and the portions were huge! My 7-yr-old loved the kids pizza, which was also bigger than I expected. I will definitely be back the next time I am in NJ.
Franco’s Metro is our go to place for a guaranteed excellent meal. The menu is diverse, classic Italian with an array of choices from various salads, hot and cold appetizers, pasta, and veal, seafood, chicken etc. just when you think you have made your meal choices, your waiter describes several specials for the evening that are always unique and delicious! Your experience is enhanced by their friendly and professional staff. It’s also nice to have bar service. Excellent wine choices are available as well as several craft beer selections. A great place to share with family and friends as well as being intimate enough for a quiet night alone or as a couple. A neighborhood gem!
