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.

Wonderful menu. Delicious food. Angelo was so great to us! Highly recommend.
Still my favorite place in town
beautiful restaurant and great food. best calamari ever!
The only french restaurant with no french dishes but the “french fries”
It more an international cuisine than french.
Not the best choice for dinner in Scottsdale
Although we prefer to dine outdoors where it is quieter, we chose to eat indoors with old friends due to the heat. Unfortunately, our banquette was between the bar and the window tables, and we could not hear each other or engage in comfortable conversation.
We had a similar problem at the company's Fig & Olive West Hollywood property.
My order was mixed up and I did not get my food until my friends were half finished with theirs. And the meal was poorly presented and essentially inedible.
I did demand that the bill for me be cancelled, and the manager did comply.
I would never go to Francines again nor would I recommend it. I am a regular contributor to Trip Advisor and have written over 150 reviews. This was the most negative review I have ever written. And in reading what others wrote, I am not the only dissatisfied customer.
This restaurant has so much potential has a beautiful Bar and Kitchen The biggest problem is the service we sat for at least 20 minutes with no water or even a waiter to show up and greet us. The menu it’s really good and the food was is above average!! Scottsdale is a great foodie town not many French options in town though in this one could be a good one if they got their service lined out!!
Authentic upscale french bistro ....
Great upscale location. Good service, polite staff. As a personal note and preference, the steak tartare was too finely cut, giving it a ground beef texture. I prefer a slightly rougher cut to the meat. Overall an excellent experience and we will be returning soon.
The evening was wonderful!! The food and service were amazing . We had the lamb and scallops . It’s a beautiful place to celebrate a birthday 🎂
Absolutely love eating here. It’s beyond superb.
Lovely Saturday brunch with my bestie. Our server, Ryan, was the perfect level of attentive. Bestie had the Boursin omelet and I enjoyed the egg white frittata. Have a few food sensitivities all of which were handled seamlessly. Beautiful restaurant. French bistro at its finest.
So delicious! We went with a group of 11 for a bachelorette and we were truly impressed by the good and service. Thank you!
We had a wonderful dining experience on the patio Friday night. Our server was excellent, very attentive, and made great recommendations on the wine (a rhone region red) and our food orders. We started with the beef carpaccio then had the bone marrow pasta, halibut, and crab ravioli, all were great. We ordered the apple tart and chocolate pots de creme for dessert. We loved it all! Thank you for a great night.
Great energy spot. Food was good but our dessert was made wrong. Someone put salt into our ganache instead of sugar. No compensation for that. So sad.
The halibut was outstanding. Cannot say the same for the crab raviolis. The beef Carpaccio was so good that I wish I had two. Our waiter was wonderful and informative.
All I can say is listen to the wait staff when ordering. Trust them and not the menu.
The restaurant was beautiful & the service was good. However, I was not very impressed with the food. It was my 1st time there and don’t think I’ll be going back.
Incredible food, good portions, warm and friendly service all in a stunning, modern atmosphere with all the ambiance.
From service to the food, our dinner was outstanding in every way. Kudos to Francine for an A+ experience all around. My wife and I will be back soon. Thanks so much.
Exquisite, well-prepared food, served by an attentive and knowledgeable server. We enjoyed tuna tartare, mussels with frites, the branzino with lovely sides. Nice white wine. No room left to try dessert, but will next time.
First time there..met/exceeded expectations; and will come back!
From the cocktail & wine, the foccacio, the mezza, our main dish (tableside Branzino under salt dome for 2) with the ratatouile and olive oil mashed potatoes to the pot de creme to end with dessert, all was outstanding!
Always a great experience. Food and service are excellent!
Great food and fun atmosphere. Happy hour was really good with the drink and food choices.
Francine is my favorite Scottsdale restaurant. It has been since the day they opened.
I love everything about it:
3) cocktail menu
Try it, you’ll love it❣️
PS) hoping they bring back the grilled lemon 🍋 pizza as it was THE BEST PIZZA I’ve ever tasted.
Good service and good food.
Nice beautiful place, service was great and the food amazing!
On Mondays they have my favorite bottle of rose 50% off...
Food was delicious!!!
Loved the interiors of this restaurant. It's bright and elegant. The food was fabulous. The duck is not to be missed!
Wonderful spot with bright, relaxing ambiance and polite, attentive staff. Service was not slow and yet we were not rushed either. Try the seafood dishes!
We were very disappointed, give the reviews that we had read. They must have been paid to write them.
Food was good but small portion for the price
3 scallops $42
Waiter was uptight -
It was my friends bday, I asked if they did anything,
he said nope we aren’t that kind of restaurant-
Brought dessert with no candle nothing and then 2 mins later the table next to us gets two desserts with a candle on each.. hmmm🤔
Have had the same waiter a couple of times and just get an arrogant, not patient vibe from him. We felt more relaxed when we moved to the bar after our lunch
We "discovered" Francine and now can't stay away. Everything is so tasty. Love the omelet om the brunch menu. The lobster and shrimp salad is superb. The room is so refreshing and light and it is a joy to be in.
We were in the sun so we couldn’t stay and relax. We rushed to leave ASAP. Even stood up and moved and drank my mimosa in the shade a shame because love the restaurant and they had so many empty tables
Sunday Brunch, was not too busy. We had great potatoes and eggs. The french toast was delicious.
Great meal, great ambiance, great staff, can not recommend it enough!
I really did want to love this place, my friend and I had a reservation which they did get us in on time. However our server was not attentive whatsoever and when we asked questions about the menu he was extremely short with us. Both of the plates we tried ordering, the server said they had ran out of for the evening which was disappointing. We ordered a mushroom pasta which was very underwhelming and the fish my friend ordered made her sick once we got home. Drinks were good however! Unfortunately I don’t think we will be returning here, for the price I was expecting the service as well as food to be better.
Excellent food. Great variety. Service was wonderful too. When we inquired about the wines, waiter brought over a more knowledgeable person to help with selection. Great team work and we will definitely be back.
