Wonderful day at this waterfront bistro!
Excellent service & delicious food.
Thank you so much for the wonderful review Scott! :)
Nice outdoor patio with plenty of tables, my Poke bowl was quite good.
Thank you so much! We agree, the Poke Bowl is pretty great!
Hostess was very accommodating regarding seating us. Food, grouper and red snapper, was outstanding. Service was remarkable. A very pleasant experience. Will return next year for sure.
Thank you so much for the fantastic review Fritz! We cannot wait to have you back!!
Fried calamari there is the best among all the restaurants we have tried, the grouper bites also loveable. We love the views and sometimes you will be scared by the birds, but it's fine. Outdoor seating is another reason we love it there.
Thank you so much for the review and compliments Jane! Hope to see you again soon!
I really enjoyed this spot. The sangria is very good and that was my highlight outside of the waterfront view under the stars.
Hello! Thank you for the compliments and we agree, the sangria is pretty amazing! Hope to see you soon :)
Overall the food was good, but the wait staff seemed to be over busy. Too many things going on at once.
Hi there- Thank you for the review as we always appreciate customer feedback. We hope you decide to give us another try in the future.
I booked this reservation for my wife and I for Valentines day. We had an excellent time. The food was amazing. We ordered the Seafood platter to share. The menu says its for two people, but it could easily feed three. The blackened octopus was our favorite. Our waitress Keisha was great. We will be going back in the near future.
Hi James! Thank you for the great feedback and 5 star review! We will absolutely be sure to pass this along for Keisha and management to see :)
Great brunch menu, excellent service from Georgia.
Thank you for the 5 star review! We will definitely be sure to pass this along for Georgia and management to see :)
We love sitting outside and dining at Frescos. They have the best staff and food is fabulous. Always a pleasure ❤️
Wow, thank you Paula! We are always happy to have you :)
We enjoyed Valentine's Day brunch at Fresco's. The food was absolutely fantastic, fresh seafood and creative brunch options. Cocktails were delicious and service was fine even as busy as it was. But nothing beat the ambience. Being on the deck by the water among the sailboats with a spectacular view was absolutely perfect.
Thank you for the great review Monty and we are so happy you decided to spend your Valentine's Day with us at Fresco's! Hope to see you again soon!
Can’t say enough about the food and service here!! Made for a delicious Valentines Day Brunch.
Thank you for spending your Valentine's Day with us and are so happy to hear you had a wonderful experience :) Stop in and see us again soon!

Hi there- If you could please leave us more detailed feedback, we would appreciate it so we can try to correct the situation. Thank you.
Thank you! Come on in and see us again soon!
Great outdoor dining option right at the entrance to the new St Pete Pier. Don’t overlook this restaurant just because it’s not one of the new ones - excellent service and food! Steak was cooked perfectly and had some nice specials for Valentine’s Day breakfast/brunch.
Thank you so much for the wonderful review! We are thrilled you spent your Valentine's Day with us :) Hope to see you in again soon!
was on vacation when i visited and it was a great last stop before coming home!
This was my first visit to Frescos and enjoyed the views as well as my food. I’ll go back again.
We are happy to have had you! Can't wait to see you again soon. Thank you!
Food was really good and came out in less than 5 minutes. Great service as well.
Thank you for the review! :)
Always a great lunch at Fresco's on the water! Whether you are with a group or alone, there is something so nice about sitting looking out at the marina and the vast sky. The food and service here are good, and the prices are reasonable. I have never been for dinner, but for lunch I love their grouper items and the poke bowls.
Hi there! Thank you for the compliments :) Come on in and try out our dinner menu, you won't be disappointed!
Great lobster roll and fries, grouper sandwich, drinks, water views, and service. Always a go to spot for lunch.
Thank you very much! Hope to see you again soon!
Food and service was good. I was concerned that the tables were closer together than the CDC guidelines recommends. All of the restaurant staff did wear masks.
Hi there! Thank you for the review and feedback. We take the CDC guidelines seriously and our restaurant is completely within the guidelines. We appreciate the compliments on food and service and hope you stop in and see us again soon!
This was my first visit to Freco’s . My server Chris was great and he was very familiar with the menu. The food was excellent, prepared very well. I will definitely be returning to Freco’s.
Wow, thank you SO much for the wonderful review Jack! We agree, Chris is AWESOME! We will absolutely make sure this gets passed along for management and Chris to see :)
SERVER WAS ATTENTIVE AND SHE WAS PLEASANT. BEAUTIFUL VIEWS AND THE FOOD WAS VERY TASTY.
Thank you Keith! We love to hear this :)
Love the location and view. Perfect place for lunch before visiting the Pier.
Thanks Warren! We are so happy to hear you enjoyed your visit with us!!
Food was great, service was really good - but the table over by the corner of the deck was not ideal - a better table placement would have garnered a better rating
Hello! Thank you for the review as we always appreciate customer feedback as well as your business!
We love Frescos. The food is reliably good. We had a cheeseburger and three salads. All were fresh and delicious. We started with calamari which was a little chewy. The service was prompt and courteous. But the star of Frescos is the location, outside,on the water, next to a marina. It is so beautiful there! We will be back.
Thank you so much for the 5 star review and feedback! Hope to see you again soon!
Thank you so much!
It was a great place. Food was amazing and service was perfect. Will definitely be back.
Thank you for the wonderful compliments! :)
Awesome food! Amazing service. Very attentive server. We ordered the Fresco mule for cocktails. We also ordered the calamari, wings, egg rolls, and ahi tuna. Definitely a hit for our party of three.
Awesome! We love to hear this :) Thank you!
Plenty of seafood options and cocktails. The side quinoa and veggie noodles salad was better than expected and my shrimp tacos were great. Excellent, friendly server. Nice view of the marina
Thank you so much for the great review! Come on in and see us again soon!
Great service and amazing food!!
Thank you Timothy! Hope to have you in again soon :)
Beautiful water view in downtown St. Petersburg.
Thank you so much! :)
Surprisingly excellent vegan option with the quinoa bowl! French fries were also perfectly crispy and my meat eating friends enjoyed their meals too. We will definitely be back!
Thank you so much for the great review! We love to hear this :)
Started out a little rough but ended on an absolute high note! I had called about 10hrs before our reservation time to add an additional person to our reservation to be a total of 5 and the man Scott told me it would be impossible to add another person to our table & that the most they were seating was 4 people. We showed up as 5 anyways and when we walked in, much to my surprise there were tables of 5-7 all around. Once we were seated, our fabulous server (can’t remember her/their name but started with a K) was AMAZING. The absolute nicest person. We were seated inside with almost no chance of sitting outdoors, BUT SHE MADE IT HAPPEN. Once we got out there it was a little chilly, and she was able to get the heat lamps on for us. Never had an empty glass, we were toasty with the lamps on, and she had great food recommendations. Food overall wasn’t as amazing as I was expecting (3.5/5) but would definitely recommend at least for the view & service we had!
Hi there- Thank you for the 5 star review! We apologize, but on busy holidays such as New Year's Eve, it is policy to not reserve tables for more than 4 people however we are very pleased to hear you were able to be accommodated when you arrived!! We appreciate the wonderful compliments and love to hear it :) Thank you again!
Our dinner at Fresco’s was amazing! Our table overlooked the water and the drinks were delicious. We split the seafood platter and had the perfect amount of food. Definitely will be back!
Thank you Taylor! We appreciate the awesome review!!
Great waterfront restaurant with excellent service and good food.
Thank you so much! Hope to see you again soon!
The food is excellent, the outside dining is very nice. The tables are tight but the staff wear masks. If you’re concerned about dining at restaurants, stay home. Otherwise, put this place on your list.
Hi Greg! Thank you for the 5 star review and compliments! We appreciate you dining with us and hope to see you again soon!
Even with reservations we waited to be seated for 30 minutes. We kept hearing the hostess telling everyone that they were next to be seated. When we asked her about it she blamed it on Open Table and said they can’t control the ap reservations. I left and ate elsewhere. The rest of the family stayed and said the food was good but the service was slow.
Hello- We are sorry to hear about this experience with us as that is not the service we expect from our staff. Although it is no excuse, we have recently hired many new staff members as this is the busiest time of year for us. We appreciate customer feedback as it lets us know what we need to train more on and correct the issues for the future.
Food was mediocre for the price. Location was awesome. Service was so-so
Thank you for the review as we always appreciate customer feedback. Hope you decide to give us another try in the future!
The food was outstanding and our waitress was very friendly! We sat right next to the water and watched th boats come and go!
Thank you Belinda! We appreciate the review and your business :)
