Food and service were amazing! Due to the current restrictions, table was on the sidewalk/ in the parking lot, so the the Ambiance and noise level were were largely out of the restaurant control. They worked about as well as could be expected in that environment. The food and staff more then made up for it though, and we will be going back
We thought there would be music but we had the wrong day😒. Everything else was awesome!!
Franco's seafood and fish is the best in the area. Always so fresh and exceptionally prepared. His seasoning and condiments with all his dishes is just right . His side dishes are tasty and fun. If you don't want to eat there which is currently outdoor dining only, stop in for some fish to prepare at home or take out is for meals is also available.
They have done a nice job w/ the outdoor seating. Loved the live music.
Outside seating with live music on Thursdays. Freshist fish ever. Groupon sandwhich and 1/2 lb. halibut was the best in NW suburbs.
They did their best considering COVID, outdoor seating in the parking slots.
Franco’s is always a good choice for Italian seafood. The food was great but the menu is more limited than it used to be for those who haven’t been there in a while.
The wait staff recommendations are always spot on. For additional input, ask to speak to Franco directly, he is always willing to help with menu selection.
Franco is hardworking owner who makes sure everything is right.
The service was slow.
The salmon was undercooked.
Love this place and love Lily !!! One of the best waitresses ever
Noisy, confusing, expensive for the quality of food. Crab cakes no good, fried calamari way over cooked and everything is ala cart!
We normally bought fish and cooked it at home from Franco’s , but dined there about 4 weeks ago and have been twice since then. The food , service and atmosphere is really great. This is now our go to restaurant for seafood. Try it out
Food was amazing in all ways possible. We did feel the price was a bit too high for “ fish fry”. To spend $40.00 per meal makes it a place we would probably not go back for.
Again food was excellent as was the service.
Very casual with upscale menu options. Service was great and food exceptional.
Great food, great price and great service. Definitely recommend
The food was excellent. The owner spent sometime helping us with suggestions for dinner and everyone’s fish was prepared to perfection. We will be a regular customer from now on
Absolutely delightful fresh fish and unbelievable entertainment with The Corner Boys! We had to really look for the restaurant as it is in a huge strip mall, but just look for the ‘Fresh Seafood’ sign!! Also-GPS was quite accurate in the directions within the strip mall. Happy hour specials were great-$5 glasses of house wine, and multiple oyster specials. If you want fresh fish-choose your fish, the size serving you would like, AND the preparation!! Cannot miss this fantastic and unassuming restaurant!!
Great place - wonderful food, nice ambience. Love it!
Great place for fish
My wife and I wanted a date, so driving toward Lake Zurich and she said how about the fish place. That is our quant name for it for the deli case of fish. Using Open table we were able to make a reservation and we were sitting at a table. The service was great and food was excellent. Not fond of high top tables, but seriously that was my only complaint of the evening.
Great food. Servers have a tablet to put in all food and drink orders. Really improved the service by adding in this technology.
Excellent food and the wait staff was very good. Would definitely go back again.
The food at Franco's is outstanding; it is a small restaurant so seating is not the most comfortable. Often, diners are very close to each other. My friend and I felt like we were in the walkway with people bumping past us, which wasn't ideal. When we asked to move, we were met with the owner who was visibly grumpy.
The service was attentive and courteous, but I dislike the servers billing the diners right at the table with no time to confer about the check. My friend and I had quite a difference in what we ordered and wanted to compensate in the tip, but the server was hanging over us and we felt unable to talk openly about the amount we wanted to split. I feel like talking tip in front of the server is tacky and I didn't like this aspect one bit.
The food is great, but maybe next time I would carry out.
Welcomed in like family. Each of our meals was custom made to perfection. Live music and great service. Will return!
Fabulous food and service!! Opakapaka was outstanding and black cod scrumptious. Best fish outside of Hawaii!!
Truly an enjoyable evening. The food was fantastic - we tried several different dishes and appetizers, and none were disappointing. Franco even stopped at the table and checked on us a few times. Could not recommend higher, we will definitely be back!
Sorry to say that this trip was disappointing. I’ve been here several times before and was pretty satisfied with food & service. Really loved their grouper sandwich. This time most was good except that the black cod I ordered came out very under cooked. The owner came by right after I took one bite to see how our meals were, which I appreciated. However when I told him what my situation was, and of which he fully acknowledged by looking at my plate, he offered to bring out a properly cooked piece of fish. At that point I was really no longer in the mood to try anything else. I said “thank you but I’m good”. He then apologized again and said he would comp the “ prep” fee and would bring over an aperitif. Hmmmm....what?. So he brought over a couple of liqueur shots (my husband doesn’t drink by the way) and then the waitress brought the bill. I was so surprised to see we were charged for my piece of fish that was way undercooked and also “un-eaten” , of course we were given an $8 credit for “prep fee”. This was surprising to me. How do you charge a customer for a meal that was sent out un-eatable and charge them for it? I will say the mussels, the burrata salad and my husband’s fish were all good. The wine was also good, however smallest pours I’ve ever seen.
I really want to like this place but am left feeling like it’s just not worth what they are serving up. But mostly they just really lost me by charging us $21 for a 6 oz piece of half raw black cod. Unfortunately not going back.
The wait staff was excellent and food outstanding. My only negative is the noise level. I was there earlier in the week on a Wednesday night when it was minimally busy and the music was great and I could have a wonderful conversation. Friday night it was packed and it was hard to hear our friends conversation as well as the waitress. Maybe some baffles or fabric on the ceiling would help.
Excellent and fresh seafood
Always delicious food and outstanding service!! Black cod just melted in your mouth!
Our first issue was that the menu didn't show the several types of fish being served. Kind of a important thing to know. They say that because they have new, fresh offerings daily, they don't provide one. The waitress did allow us to review the handwritten list of 7-10 fish available. Unfortunately, that list didn't have the prices - which turned out to be a price per pound and not a price per serving. You have to guess or know from experience or desire how much you want to have. You can choose how you want it prepared (e.g., grilled, blackened, etc.) and what type of seasoning you want. All, good, if you are that experienced, but if you were expecting to come in an have a set menu offering at set prices as we did, we found it to be a lot of work and guessing. The waitress was patient and nice, given the situation and who we were. The staff delivering the food did so with zero style of presentation - that is why the service score dropped from what the good job (3-stars) the waitress had done. The food was good. My intent here was not to be negative, but to say that overall it wasn't what we expected. We were looking for a traditional restaurant, while this was a place where fresh fish could be purchased, prepared and served to you with a reasonable set of sides and wine choices. Tried to be fair and helpful in this review.
Franco’s always delivers! The seafood is fresh and prepared to perfection. The sides are wonderful (the lobster Mac is to die for!). Service was great! Live music was phenomenal. I have never been disappointed at this establishment. I highly recommend!
Both chicken Parmesan and veal Parmesan were very dry and hard in parts. The shrimp with risotto and seafood lasagne were good
Great dining experience...food and staff was very good.
Good food in an unexpected place. Reasonably quiet; service was prompt. Seating is varied -- tables for two or larger groups. The lighting was dimmed a bit -- a nice touch. Food portions were 'just enough'. Veal parmigiana was very good as was the Sauvignon Blanc accompaniment. The Beets and Burrata was also good as was the Shrimp Bisque. As this establishment also has fresh fish for purchase, diners can order fish prepared as they wish from a very wide variety of possibilities. We'll come back.
Delicious food, creative pre-set menu for New Year's Eve, delightful service. Great for couples, less so for young kids on nights with the set menu.
Service and food was excellent. We will be back
Beautiful & delicious New Years Eve menu!
I continually recommend Franco's. It is excellent. Best seafood in the area.
First off: Lunch food was very good, fresh, with ample proportions. For dine-in you order at the register. We did that and I graciously added a 25% tip at the on-screen prompt. Then we took a seat at a table of our choice as there was nobody in the restaurant. Our drinks were brought out followed shortly by our food. After that, there was ZERO contact by the staff. No "how is everything". No "can I get you some more water or a refill on your soda". No "can I remove these empty plates sitting ugly in front of you". No "thank you, have a good evening". So when I provided a generous tip BEFORE receiving any service, I assumed there would be some service to back it up. I can order at a McDonald's kiosk and have them bring food to the table and never see them again. That's not what I expected from Franco's. The service I received was non-existent, and not even worthy of a 10% tip. If I ever go again, it will probably just be for take-out.
