Acclaimed restaurateur, Laurent Halasz, behind FIG & OLIVE, brings his most personal project to date to Scottsdale at the Luxury wing of Fashion Square: FRANCINE
Halasz, who was raised in the South of France amidst the bounty of simple and soulful cuisine draws inspiration from his birthplace. FRANCINE is a spirited and loving homage to days spent in the sun and amongst gatherings around beautiful meals hosted by his mother Francine Halasz. Everything on my mother’s table was fresh, seasonal, and full of flavor, and that is exactly what FRANCINE will offer our guests.

    Excellent preview of the cuisine by the server. Was advised that apps and entrees are ordered together. So we did that. Got two apps in and the entree arrives. Then our third appetizer arrives after that. This is a shared dinner between 3 people.Lastly we ordered potatoes au gratin as a side with Icelandic cod. The table is fully cleared of utensils and plates and then the potatoes arrived almost like a dessert. Very strange. Kinks need to be worked out. Chef is good, staff seems to be attentive, timing totally off. My wife is a local Chef and she agrees. Not hurrying back there anytime soon.

    The noise level is awful - can’t hear the people sitting across from you. Tables are crowded together, service is just ok and food is nothing special (actually no more than good enough). Wine list is disappointing. This restaurant has a very high opinion of itself as reflected in the prices, an opinion we don’t share. We will not be back. If you want to spend big money, go somewhere else! (In this price range, there are way better choices in Scottsdale).

    Food, service surroundings are five star but only a 4 star for me. The ONLY reason being was the music, after 6:00, switched to a loud, thumping (not energetic) bass boom on REPEAT. Francine is too fine of a restaurant with a beautiful bar and lovely seating area for bar “pick up” music. Please keep the vibe of harmony and Europe with your daytime playlist. The energy comes from the full restaurant of happy, lively dinner conversation that was definitely already present.

    First, this team is white linen NYC trained. Disciplined in Fine dining, a rarity. Food was spectacular with an impressive wine list. Colin, Floor Sup has a repository for knowledge and pairings. Apps: Steak tartar, tomato crostini, octopus and cauliflower (ok) Midcourse: Bone marrow pasta- excellent, a touch under cooked Entre: tomahawk and cod - flawless The garlic they squeeze with a chimchurri like pesto Dessert: just order all 4

    Loved the dinner. Service was so great as was the food. Only feedback is that the vehicles that come through the valet line blast lights directly onto the poor souls on the patio (in this case us).

    We tried for my birthday. It was okay. I don’t feel like it lines up to the hype. If you want a trendy Scottsdale spot it may be for you but if you’re interested in really good food there are other options out there. We won’t go back.

    We have dined at Francine several times in the past and have had good service. Unfortunately this time, our waiter was not friendly, made us feel rushed and immediately brought us the check as soon as we took the last bite of our lunch. It was my friend's birthday and we planned on having something sweet after our meal. Our waiter never asked if we wanted dessert or told us about the desserts or presented a dessert menu. He brought the check to the table when I left for the ladies room so I wasn't there to say anything. He made us feel like he couldn't wait for us to leave. We had 11:00am reservations so the restaurant was not very busy. We love Francine and the food is outstanding. The service was very disappointing. We hope the next time we will feel more welcome and will experience better service.

    As returning guests we appreciated their system, their service and their menu. Was a little disappointed that a few dessert menu items were not available (although the changes were NOT INDICATED IN THE ON-LINE MENUS. Jason was our server and we enjoyed our conversations with him. We look forward to our next visit. R. Meyer, Scottsdale, AZ

    Our probably 6-8th time eating here. Good consistently good. Only service was SUUUPER SLOW today. Took them 10 min to even get us water, another 20 min for a bottle of wine. Food didn’t come out at same time (took like 10 min for 8 meals to come out). But then at least qualify of food was as good as usual. Will wrote it off to an off night on service and will come back. But disappointed a bit today. Other than that still one of my favorites.

    Our first visit, the service was slow but very friendly. Some of the dishes were really good. That’s why we returned This time the service was also friendly but so painfully slow. Waiting that long for a meal that was slightly above average is not worth a return visit.

    It was our Sons birthday. Food was good. Service was also fine. Not sure what servers name was though, and he did not ask how the food was. I got the feeling it was a “ regulars place”, they seemed to get all the attention. We did not get it! Kind of disappointing. We may be just standard costumers, But ..we paid $250:00 for a diner out,I would expect more. I might also add that my Mussels came with 4 unopened. Really not acceptable. I , as a home cook would ever serve unopened mussels to a guest.

    Having been to over 90 different restaurants in Scottdale, this would be my top pick. They obsess over each dish that is plated. If you are a real "foody"; you will appreciate every detail. Besides the food, the vibe is great. People dressed like adults, music right, light low (just how it should be). Owners, managers and servers are knowledgeable and passionate about delivering an incredible experience- which they always do. Can't wait to be back.

    The food was very good, with portions that were just right. Meant for adventurous palates, rather than traditional American tastes and large portions. The food was fresh, so expect to wait for it, which is in line with French food philosophy. The only quibble would be that the restaurant was very busy, with a much higher noise level and wait staff that were overwhelmed. This may need to be fixed over time.
