Perfect place for a light (or not so light) lunch - it was exactly what we were searching for My guests and I spent the morning walking around the French Quarter and then drove through the Garden District. We were looking for lunch and wanted sandwiches; found this place while driving down Maple Street. Menu offers Greek and Mediterranean fare,... More

Should have known when it took forever to get menus. Finally cajoled an apathetic waiter to get us water and menus after a 10 min wait. Forget silverware. We never got any farther. Finally left after another 20 min wait. Completely ignored us!

After five and half years of having Fresco for lunch about 2-3 a month), it doesn't seem possible that I am just now writing about them. Fresco's is the office team's favorite place to order lunch in, especially on pay-day Fridays. Between the turkey sandwich, Greek Salad, Ham & Cheese sandwich, Gyro Lavash, and Portable Mushroom sandwich and pizza -... More

maple street has always been known for great lunch places and new places keep opening up so we decided to try Fresco. Overall, it was a good meal that was very good and gave you huge portions. The ambiance of the restaurant is very casual but they do have a wait staff (one waitress) who was good despite being the... More

Place my order online. At 6:43pm I received an email stating that my order was out for delivery. I live 15 minutes away. At 7:15 I called, and the person that answer the phone got aggravated with me and handed it to the manager, (weird name), he just blew me off saying that the order was on the way. I... More

Had a late lunch here on Saturday. Our service was fast and the portions were generous. $35 for three of us. Best part - sitting on the deck along picturesque Maple St.

Had to wait an hour with two hungry kids while all take-away-customers came and went and obviously was given priority to sit-in guests. This really should be a take-away place only. The food was mediocre to poor, child pizza extremely salt (almost uneatable for dad), child "puffys" were uncooked inside (raw dough). Gyro roll with more cheese than tzaziki. Staff... More

I was surprised to see so many "average" reviews. We stay nearby every year and always plan a walk over there for dinner one night.

Fresco's has been on a slow decline in both volume and quality for quite some time. Our most recent visit found the restaurant interior entirely empty and the patio with one other customer, early in the Tulane semester. A Groupon brought us there, but it won't be enough again. Service was warm enough, if quite slow. Chicken wings were delicious.... More

Staying in Uptown / Carrollton

Neighbourhood Profile
Uptown / Carrollton
Very much their own self sufficient unit within the greater metro area, Uptown and Carrollton tone down the urban edge with a friendly attitude and collegiate feel. Home to Tulane and Loyola Universities, all the students living in the area ensure that Uptown and Carrollton stay youthful, cosmopolitan and vibrantly fun. Two of the liveliest thoroughfares for nightlife and socializing (and yes of course more of the city’s outstandingly good food and live music) are Oak Street and Maple Street. For a truly wild time, the expansive acreage of Audubon Park, with its zoo, golf course, and actual patches of swampy wetlands, means peace and quiet are never too far away.
