Good service, great food and great value.
This was our first visit to Fresco’s but definitely will not be our last! The service was friendly and prompt, not just for us but as we noticed, for all other tables around us. Even when they were moderately busy, everything flowed smoothly. We had a reservation through Open Table and our special seating request was granted without issue.
About the food-
We both had the sea bass, blackened. I with the chimichurri and sautéed spinach (easy Keto). Mom with the mango salsa and pineapple coleslaw. Portions were ample & flavors on point- well balanced on all sides. Just enough sweet-salty-acidic. Nothing bland- it all worked!
Only the Caesar salad was “ok”- ingredient quality and flavor was good, but a bit light on the dressing for our taste. However that was easily handled by our super server Katie, who quickly brought some extra.
Prices are fair and you can’t beat the setting- the view of the marina is pleasant no matter what the weather :) Like we said, we’ll be back, and likely often. Thx for being part of a great memory :)
Their brunch is fantastic
Beautiful place, food is good but they are not organized!
from the time of my reservation it took at least 30 minutes for me to sit at the table
I also noticed that other guests were furious at the delay of their table and left the restaurant
we received the menu and it took at least 15 minutes for a waiter to come and ask if we had already been served
We found Frescos on Travelocity when we decided to spend in evening off the beach, in St. Petersburg. What a great find! Right on the water, the atmosphere is fun and romantic at the same time and the food was delicious. While my husband preferred the grouper sandwich at a little shack on the beach, my mahi sandwich was literally to die for! I could see the other meals being served and I wished I had ordered the tater tots, because they looked really good as well! If we visit St. Petersburg again, and I think we will, we will return to Frescos.
Went with a friend and our dogs and had a fabulous time, gorgeous view of the water and the food was pretty great. Definitely recommend it.
Was hoping for a good experience at a restaurant with a nice view of the marina in downtown st. pete. instead, got a disinterested waitress, entrees that took over 40 minutes to arrive, food that was mediocre and a seat overlooking the water that was constantly visited by flies and birds swinging through for a bite. When i complained to the manager about the wait - after a family next to us just told the staff to put their food in to go containers because they got tired of waiting - the manager refused to admit there was a problem. Such a disappointment from a restaurant with a prime spot in downtown st. petersburg.
Excellent service, good food - quality & Quantity, right on the water
Great family time!
The food was excellent. The service was awful. The waiter spilled a full glass of red wine on our guest. His dinner was copmed but we had to request that his beer be included. We then called the manager over to ask about how the stains on his clothes would be taken care of. She said the waiter spilled the wine on accident (no question about that) and that is part of the risk you taking eating in a restaurant. Enough said. Too bad because the food was really good.
Fresco's is one of our favorites. Ambiance, food, service and location make for a very positive experience
This restaurant is next to a Marina. We enjoyed our late lunch on the way to the airport. Excellent food and service.
Fabulous food and service. Katie our server was wonderful!
Overall a very good experience would recommend this restaurant.
The combination of flavors are fantastic. Complements to the chef. Amazing experience, wonderful food. Great service
Great restaurant for outdoor dining! We had our dog Charlie with us and they are very pet friendly! We were able to order a chicken breast for him and it was served in a paw print dog bowl! Our waiter was super! We will definitely visit again! And recommend to our family and friends!
Food was great, view was very nice on the water, just not as classy as I thought it would be. We were the only people dressed up there. All in all, it was very nice with good food.
Nice atmosphere, good food, good service and most importantly dog friendly. I made a reservation for lunch and asked for an outside table away from too much traffic since I was coming with my two dogs, and they had reserved a very nice table for me just as I had requested which I appreciated very much. And my dogs seemed to enjoy the bowl of water with ice and the awesome view as well.
Food was great!!! Will definitely be returning. The waiter could use a little more training.
Great location in downtown St Pete, right on the water. Food was outstanding. Service was awesome. Our server was on top of her game the whole time we were there. Great restaurant to relax and enjoy the waterfront!
Love the Grouper nuggets and Crab cakes! Our Server Chris was great!
Food and service were excellent; as good as any fish (snapper) we have had in St. Pete. Definitely will be returning.
Have been to this restaurant many times and overall food and service is quite good.
However, this time my husband's fish was cold (cooked but cold) as if it had been sitting out for awhile before it was brought to the table. My fish tacos were good and the sangria was quite tasty. Waiter was attentive. View wonderful
Everything about our experience was great! We had an awesome vegetarian, gf “pasta” and seafood options. Server was very good too.
Had the black grouper dinner and it was amazing. Highly recommend it. It’s as good here as any place in St. Pete. Wonderful outside dining just wish they did not have smoking at the bar.
Fresco’s outdoor dining is a favorite destination. Good food, good service all in a marina setting. We have never been disappointed.
Had a wonderful date and food was delicious!
A must dine at when we visit St. Pete. Outstanding in every way.
Great fish tacos at a reasonable price. Beautiful setting on the water.
Food was fantastic and the server was very attentive without being annoying. View of course was awesome. We really enjoyed it all.
Fresco's is one of our favorite "go to" spots in DTSP. The fish is always great, their drinks are large, and the service is exceptional with their tableside tablets for immediate ordering. Scott in particular always makes us feel like we're at home. If you haven't eaten at Fresco's, you should!
We really enjoyed the table for 2 right on the water. The service was really good and quick even with it being pretty crowded on a Saturday night. I tried the chimichurri preparation for the red snapper for the first time and it was great, and my girlfriend had the picatta for the sea bass and really enjoyed it as well. The grilling on the red snapper was just a perfect amount of crunchy golden brown. We've gone to a couple Beach Dr. restaurants at 6pm'ish for dinner before 8pm Mahaffey shows and more than once we've barely made it on time, so we were really happy the service was so prompt.
Outside table booked - advised unable to give table with umbrella although ones available. Waitress haphazard - forgot several items. Noisy. Food v good, generous portions.
Service is good and it is a nice casual atmosphere overlooking the yachts. Food is good! We have come back here often when we visit the area.
We had a great time, i've lived here for many years and never knew it existed till this past weekend-- Pet Friendly on the water and Great food.. Stoop in and check it out.
There were 10 staff members walking around doing nothing, while my drink sat empty for 20 min. Atmosphere was ok service was a joke.
Nice casual dinner. Not rushed at all. Food was very good, especially the wedge. Would return if we’re in the area.
Great atmosphere! Food was also great. Tommy was our server and was also great! We sat on the deck.
