We were there to celebrate a special anniversary and had mentioned it in our reservation. Apparently no-one bothered to read it. The dinning room was very noisy and it was difficult to hear my wife. Our waitress service was excellent and helped make the evening memorable to us. My wife ordered lobster tails and it was obvious that they were not fresh. I ordered New York Cut steak and, although it was prepared as I asked was a bit tough. I would recommend the restaurant for a casual meal not a special occasion.

I live out of the area and come here once a year approximately, for a pre holiday work dinner and they NEVER disappoint. We each had a Sirloin special and agreed that the meat, seasoning and temperature far exceeded any overpriced Steakhouse in NYC.

we have been "regulars" at this restaurant for a long time and generally treated well. this night the owner clearly let us know that she has no need, much less any obligation, to honor any particular request patrons might have when making a reservation even though the request has been always honored before she became "actively " involved at managing the restaurant and for the past year or so that she has been there. . Her attitude was arrogant and condescending.

Food and service was up to par. My little issue was a friggen fly that constantly hovered around our table which was not a problem with the food and service of the restaurant.

Waiter was rude and acted like he could care less if we were there or not. Raced through the specials and then walked away. We overheard another waiter telling their table about the specials and we didn’t hear half of them from our waiter. Food is always delicious but it depends on what kind of service that you get or don’t get that irked both my husband and I.

We were seated as soon as we arrived. Our waiter, Vincent, was the perfect waiter - efficient, knowledgeable and had a magnetic personality. The food was cooked to perfection. Will definitely be returning, although until the spring it will most likely be for lunch. It’s a 50 minute drive and we don’t like to drive at night.

The food was so delicious > I had the filet the rest of my party had the eggplant, crab cakes(they were better than the ones we had in Maryland) and the salmon. We all enjoyed it and will be going back very soon. It is BYOB just a reminder however the wine store next door has a very nice selection.

Food was pretty good. We both had the salmon prepared two different ways as on the menu. it was cooked as I asked. Started with the mango calamari, was slightly chewy. The restaurant should improve on its acoustics. It is way too loud. Have to shout to be heard. The person sitting behind me was so loud that I needed to move to the opposite side of the table so we could hear each other talk. She was most likely yelling so her friends could here her!

I am a fairly frequent diner at Fresco's. The last few times I have eaten there, I am finding there is more
emphasis on quantity rather than quality. I ordered the soft shell crabs which were a special that evening.
I was surprised they were on the menu since I don't think they are in season now. They must have been frozen Soft shell crabs should be crispy and firm when done well. There were soggy and stringy. Quite a disappointment and this is the second time
I have ordered them in the past few months with similar results. I will not have them again. There were 3 of us
at our table and each entrée came with roasted potatoes. The were almost black from either sitting in
a warmer or reheated several times.
It will take me some time before I go back after several disappointing meals. I ate here frequently because of the consistency of the quality but that has changed!

Once again a totally wonderful dining experience. I had one of evening specials, which was fresh scallops over risotto and it had to be the best dish of scallops I’ve eaten in over 20 years.

What a great find in this local restaurant. I took my mother here for her birthday and we were pleased from the beginning to the end. Our server was wonderful and attentive. We all ordered the specials (so many to choose from!) and they were delicious. I had the Chilean sea bass with leeks, shiitake mushrooms, asparagus, tomato in a garlic sauce. Absolute perfection. The portions were enormous, the bread in the basket was semolina bread served warm and the dessert tray was impressive. I will be returning.

We really enjoy dining here..byob ..great bread ..an extensive menu with interesting specials. We shared a shrimp cocktail to start. The crustaceans were large and fresh. You get a house salad if you order a special. Salads are very generous with excellent greens. Entrees were sea bass with baby shrimp in a garlic sauce and pan seared scallops over risotto with crispy leaks. Both delicious.

Service was wonderful, our waitress was lovely and attentive. Main dishes were delicious but salads were disappointing. Beet salad had no greens and I think the beets were canned and sliced up! Asked and was told that Caesar salad had no anchovies but it tasted fishy none the less. We took desserts because we were too full and they were very good. Will definitely go back, but try something different to start our meal.

The food is always excellent... Negative is the tables are a little too close together. The server was disappointing today. Never had a problem with the service in the past, but for some reason today, it wasn't good. Otherwise food was delicious... Would definitely recommend.

Love the food at Frescos’s. I’ve never been disappointed. This experience was better than some of my other trips because I had the best service from Erica!! She’s the best server! Friendly, knows her menu and goes out of her way to please the customer! What an asset!!
