Nice experience w business friend celebration. Challenge w bill but they resolved quickly; always good to check the bill!
Service. Was very slow tonight
Need to redecorate -we sat in a booth with tape on seat -very tacky
Was very noisy due to a private party with open doors and high traffic in and out. Couldn’t hear each other.
Always a solid meal with great service. Nice gluten free options.
The service was terrible... we hadn’t finished our salads when our dinners were literally thrown at us. I ordered branzino which was not fresh...It looked like leftovers. We have been customers since you opened many years ago. The last few times we have eaten at Francesca’s has been very bad. Sorry to say we won’t be coming back.
Always good love it the server Jamie made the night great she’s awesome
Foods are always delicious! I want to come again. The price is reasonable. Happy hour is recommended!
I had not been here before, but the service was prompt and courteous and the food was remarkable. It's a shame I had not known about this gem of a restaurant earlier.
Sat in the back room and there was a huge party group, screaming across the tables. We could barely hear our conversation. Trout was Fair, salad good, roast chicken good, but not worth the money.
Service was impeccable & friendly. Food was outstanding. A bit on the noisy side but only because of happy diners engaged in conversation. Music was not a factor
Hostess and server were terrific!
Always great.. especially with Jaime as your server!
Consistantly terrific. The best Italian food in the North Shore.
Manager Ed was very accommodating.
Great gluten free choices
We regularly come to Franscescas and enjoy the food and atmosphere. However, on this last visit, the service was very poor. Very slow. We probably sat for at least 10 minutes before we were given water or asked for a drink order. We were sat in the back room and the ambience was poor. Waitress was nice but service was slow, not one of the enjoyable dinners we usually have there.
Valentine's Day is not the ideal restaurant night. Had to sit in the back of the banquet room facing the wall at the end. Missed on one of the appitizers, waiter was prompt and friendly, but just not the usual Francesca's quality.
Great service and food
Your choice of music does not fit the venue. I would think it would be more background with a more traditional flavor. Not coldplay and am repeats. We have also noticed this at your Disotto location. Very out of character for the setting.
As always, the food and ambiance at Francesca was wonderful. We celebrated a birthday and it was a nice evening!
Service & food were very good. The 80's & 90's rock music was too loud & distracting though.
Had a great meal with great service. My only complaint was that at about 10pm I felt as though we needed to leave. The room we were in was being totally cleared so I felt uncomfortable to stay
Food was fantastic. Ambiance was very casual/ insignificant. Highly recommend the lobster pasta
Yummy always good the skate fish was outstanding we all had it and loved it
Great place service good
We love this place. The food is excellent and the service is always good. Very convenient for us.
Wonderful cheerful waitress, good meal, a pleasure
We had a nice quiet dinner. Food, wine, and service were excellent. I highly recommend this restaurant!
The food was fantastic. Service top notch....Recommend.
Server Jamie was awesome she was great
Great play for a local italian meal and a great place to celebrate an occasion
Wonderful food and service. This place was packed by 7pm on a Thursday evening. Give yourself a few minutes extra to find parking which can be tight at this mall location. Would love to go to Francescas North in the future.
The food, as always, was delicious. There was a nice variety, And the service was excellent.
Birthday, kindly offered a complimentary birthday dessert
Started off with their new cauliflower and Brussels sprouts appetizer. My wife had the sea bass and shrimp and I had the rigatoni with sausage. Everything was excellent.
Btw, the make a very good martini as well.
Mary is a great waitress.
We asked at the beginning of the meal for separate
Checks, he brought one we reminded him he brought two checks, but put the salad on only one check, since we split the salad I had hoped he would he would split the price of the salad.
Been here about half a dozen times. Always great food and service.
Lousy service! Your server Gregorio has no customer service skills! Abrupt & more concerned about pushing the alcohol. No greeting, no reference to menu & specials. Seemed very frazzled. If I wasn’t familiar w/Francesca’s I would never come back! Do something!!!!!
A great Italian go-to for just about any night and any occasion. One of our favorites for many years.
Very disappointed in our meal, usually they area very good. This time it was tasteless - so bad I will not be going back to this location again. On top of the bad meal - the music was so loud that you could not have a conversation at the table without speaking up. Really a shock to us, Francesca's other locations have always been good. We have had issues with loud music at this location before but the food quality really was upsetting.
We always enjoy Francesca's. Food and service very good and staff is more than accommodating. Excellent!
