Wonderful Dinner and Julio was a fantastic server!!!!
The food and service at Francesca's at the Promenade is outstanding. We go as frequently as we can
We were seated at a nice table for 2. However the sun was beaming through so brightly on my boyfriend's eyes he could not even read the menu. I understand you cannot control the sun, but maybe invest in some blinds to place on the huge glass door? We asked to be moved, and that fixed everything! The service was some what slow, but it was a busy night. The waiter was friendly and accommodating. The food was okay, but nothing amazing. I would think twice before I choose this restaurant again.
We went to celebrate our Anniversary. The staff was really friendly and everyone chipped in to make our dining experience a nice one. The bread was yummy. Crispy edges. The soup special was mushroom and we loved it. I ordered off-menu because I was in the mood for spaghetti and meatballs and it was devine. My husband’s meal was mild, but still good. We would definitely return.
Wonderful place to enjoy lunch. They have a great 3-course luncheon meal for a very reasonable price. The food was absolutely delicious. Most of us had the Salmon entrée which was prepared perfectly. Our waiter, Wes, was great. We were not rushed and the noise level was not loud and were able to visit without yelling across the table. I can't wait to go there again.
Eat at this Francesca’s often. Always excellent food and great service.
Waiting to be able to see Chris again soon!!
Everything was very good.
What a great place for taking friends to celebrate birthdays and anniversaries.
We decided to try their lunch specials, they are a great price and taste delicious.
My favorite restaurant in a quiet area of a mall with plenty of parking. A pleasant and relaxed atmosphere. The staff is welcoming and attentive. Food is always consistent. The portions are generous and tasty. Our server, Laron, was excellent in explaining the specials and the menu.
Not as good as I remember from previous visits. From an unwelcome greeting at check in to the food just being ‘fine’ not great. Disappointed in this visit.
Wonderful place! Great food! Great Service! We love dining here!
Went with my girlfriend for a late dinner and everything was good. Would come back again.
Great restaurant. Good food which is always consistent. Friendly staff that are attentive to your dining needs.
Wes, our server, explained the specials for the day and made a few suggestions. As always, they were delicious.
Great food and wine at a great value!
The food and service is fantastic, great bar and dining room ambiance. Beef Carpaccio is the best i've had, outside of Italy. Everything we ordered came fresh and delicious. Our servers, Randy and Kelly made our dining experience even more sweeter. Alex/Chicago
Our waitress was amazing
Lunch combo pasta was a very small portion and pasta was too al dente any had no flavor. The minestrone was mostly broth and tasteless as well.
Best restaurant at the promenade
Food is always Great
Service is good
Lots of value for your money
Love coming here. Service this time wasn't what we're used to. Very slow, waiter standing and talking while we tried to keep three small kids from going insane bc we hadn't even ordered yet. With an almost empty restaurant, we would have expected more attention. Food came out fast and was very good, as usual!
We always enjoy this restaurant. On our last 2 visits we’ve found the service to be somewhat lacking. Otherwise great place
My wife and I went for our 1 year anniversary and let me say, this place did an amazing job at making our night memorable. The staff was outstanding, the food was delicious. We will definitely be going back.
We have eaten here several times and food is ok. Never nothing to rave about.
The food isn’t that great for the price we paid. Kind of disappointed 😔
Overall great restaurant service and food was amazing! Will definitely be back soon!
We stumbled upon this restaurant 3 yrs ago when we were in the area, and have been trying to remember where is was ever since. This weekend we found it and had an amazing lunch. Glad to see that they still are serving great food.
The food was excellent and great value. Our wait person was very attentive and very helpful when ordering. We look forward to returning.
Wesley was our server and he and his sidekick were awesome!!
Went to dinner with friends. We have eaten here on numerous occasions and continue to come back because of the food and service.
However last night the food was good as usual but the service was way off. Some of the drinks were left on a tray in back for over 20 minutes while other’s had theirs. Wrong appetizer’s
delivered and eaten as no one at the table were sure what was ordered. Server was gone for extended periods of time without
checking back. Second round of drinks took way to long to be delivered. Not a total bust as we enjoyed ourselves, just not
the experience we have come to know and expect from here.
As always I have been visiting this restaurant it’s a great place especially during the Happy Hour
Glutenfree penne pasta was overcooked and falling apart
Our meals were delicious. Had a nice time with friends and we will definitely be back.
Food and service is always excellent. It is relatively easy to get a table without a reservation.
We brought friends with us and thoroughly enjoyed cocktails with happy hour specials...we had a great time and would definitely come back. Miss the happy hour drink specials.
Excellent salmon and walleye dishes. The bread is always the best. Francesca's also offered a back to school special for teachers which was a big plus!
Stash & John took care of us on our 35th anniversary. Thank you.
As usual, Francesca's did not disappoint.
A warm greeting, quick seating and an attentive wait staff is always a plus.
The ever-changing menu, which they accommodate without a second thought, is a joy to experience.
The salmon with avocado relish (my description) is out of this world.
The Francesca salad was delicious, we always have a wonderful meal here
The lasagna on National Lasagna day, for $10.00, was perfect. Our service was great too.
great food. Lasagna day $10.00 such a value. But they brought out the wrong type but rectified it quickly by getting us the correct one asap.
