A celebration of sustenance may best describe Chef Aaron Chamberlin’s restaurant, St. Francis. Located in a historic building on Camelback Road, just east of Central in uptown Phoenix, the family-owned, family-built and family-run restaurant welcomes patrons to a neighborhood gathering place. The repurposed space was transformed with a comfortably modern and rustic sensibility that echoes the honest, spontaneous “wood-fired cuisine. St. Francis is for everyday nourishment for families, couples and even for special occasions.
It’s for connecting with the community and sharing the pleasure of simple, honest and good food. The name, “St. Francis,” was derived from the
neighborhood land deed that dates back to 1936. It was originally owned by the Brophy family. In addition, the name, “St Francis,” is Spanish for San
Francisco, a city that figured largely in Chef Chamberlin’s background.

The food was delicious. However, this was a special birthday meal, which was indicated when the reservation was made, and no mention was made of said birthday. There are many restaurants to celebrate special occasions at, and unfortunately this is not one of them. If you don't intend to do anything special, then do not ask the question when making the reservation.

The Happy Hour options were great! From the drinks to the food, everything was delicious. My favorite was the goat cheese spread, yum!

Just home from four days in California. The wife wanted to go to flower child. I suggested St. Francis since we had been there for customer appreciation day last month and the food was wonderful. And our fur kids could dine with us on the patio. So that is what we did. Cathy’s commented about her salid all the way home. Hope to go back again soon.

My girlfriend and I thought we’d try something new as we were on our way to a concert. Neat little place and our service was great and the food was delish!

The overall dining experience was positive. The food was good and creative. Interesting combinations. On open table we requested seating on the patio, but our request was not honored. Music was somewhat loud for our group, but we could take part in table conversation.

We went for brunch because Dennis Rowland was the featured Jazz singer, a well known and beloved entertainer in Phoenix. The food was as expected, great!

The food and service every time my wife and I have been there for lunch and brunch, has been great! "Big shout out" to Raul and Alysha for great service and making us feel welcomed and special.

Delicious and surprised to see that they had a little toy box at the entrance which kept our toddler amused.

4 friends finally got together & enjoyed the time catching up over a nice breakfast! I do wish the portion of quiche had been a bit more generous, or perhaps add another side such as fruit. The cinnamon roll was good. Very nice server.

Very high noise level. Hard to have a conversation. We went during Restaurant Week. Ran out of 2 of their notable dishes by 8:15. Will not go back.

We have been to St. Francis in the past, mostly for Sunday Brunch. While we enjoy the food and service, going to brunch was mainly to hear Dennis Roland at the request of our out of town guests. The food and service were perfect, the wait staff was attentive without being intrusive. Our table request was honored. A small substitution was made without hesitation. We were disappointed to learn on arrival, however, that Mr. Roland was only performing one Sunday/month. I didn't see any mention of that in the information that Mr. Roland performs at brunch. Had I known that, I could have let my guests know so that they could decide if they still wanted to go to brunch there. They may have decided to go anyway, but it would have been nice to let them know.

Exceptional in every way. I had been looking forward to coming back to Phoenix since I saw St Francis on a food TV show last year. It did not disappoint - in fact , it far exceeded my expectations. Food- service- drinks- decor - everything was 5 star. I asked for a stack of business cards. I'm promoting you guys on FB and other social media. Leaving cards at my friend's guest house in Phoenix , and with my other friends in Phoenix.
