    Incredible meal with family! Oysters were delicious and we had fun with the yummy oyster shooters! The lobster rolls were huge and fresh and as good as our favorite restaurants in New England when we lived in Rhode Island! Service by Allyana was excellent-she was sweet and attentive! We will be back for sure! Thank you for a great night!! ♥️

    I was meeting my sister and niece to celebrate my niece's graduation from high-school. We had 5 or 6 different rolls. All were very very good. My niece loves sushi, but this was her first time at a "real" sushi restaurant. We sat in the back corner, so she watched them make the food. We had wonderful service as well! This will continue to be my favorite restaurant. Thank you!

    Restaurant is beautiful and well laid out. Shrimp and grits were awesome. Service was good but not 5-star level in comparison to other restaurants. I would go back...

    We were celebrating our anniversary and wanted a great steak to go with a special bottle of wine. We were not disappointed. The food and service were excellent! Our server, Katie, took such good care of us and made our night so special. We can't wait to go back.

    We had such a wonderful time this evening at Cafe Frank. The hosts and servers went out of their way to make David's birthday celebration special. From the complimentary birthday toast of Rubus blanc de blanc brut (think sparkling chardonnay) to the salmon rillettes, the perfectly prepared wagyu steak with potato puree, to the melt in your mouth lamb shank over polenta, everything was perfect. We love the cool Parisian vibe...and the cocktails were pretty amazing too.
