My wife and I had date night at Francesca's last week. I only ordered a salad and soup because I wasn't hungry. I also was disappointed because none of the specials caught my eye. Then I noticed hearts of palm and avocado salad and roasted red pepper soup, so I ordered them both from the specials menu. What a treat.... More

We have been to Francescas many times and it never disappoints. We had a table for 12 after a communion and the service and food was top notch. A great place to visit as a couple or with a large group.

We love to go to this restaurant. The food is outstanding, and they are always willing to prepare something you request even if it is not on the menu. Make a reservation to avoid having to wait on busy evenings.

Ambiance is great, friendly service. Casual to dressy, anything goes. It's about the fabulous food. Separate rooms to rent for parties.

I have been there a few times, a couple of date nights without the kids; but we were also there the night my daughter made her confirmation for a special occasion. It is a very nice place, the service is great. My daughter went there for homecoming one year and really loved it too.

Neighborhood Gem. Best wine selection and had great pasta dinner. Lived in area for 21 years but never checked this place out since I'm not a pasta fan . After eating here fir the first time I can now say I love pasta now. Especially from this place. New favorite restaurant.

I lived in Chicago's Lakeview neighborhood when the first Francesca's opened there in the 80s, and that restaurant helped launch a culinary renaissance in Chi-town. It wasn't long before it was the "in" spot with hours-long waits to see and be seen. The food was always basic but super fresh and authentic. When this outlet opened in the burbs, it... More

Took my girlfriend here for Valentine's Day. We've been coming here for a while and normally love it. However, I don't know who made the decision to turn the banquet room into a sardine can (manager, owner etc.), but the place was packed. If I can high five the people at the table next to me without either of us... More

I ordered the Shrimp,scallops and calamari pasta. It was a combination of flavors which were absolutely delicious. There table bread was right out of the oven. The service was also very good.
