Francesca's Bryn Mawr
crispy fried rhode island calamari served with marinara
Matt was awesome! Made great recommendations.
Another great meal. Love this place. Doing a great job with outdoor and social distance seating. Food was top notch. Waiter was amazing. Nice experience.
My new favorite neighborhood place. Reliable, good, clean, great service. Love the outdoor dining
Walked by this place many times and finally tried it only to be disappointed. We made a reservation and the table wasn’t ready-keep in mind, no one was waiting. Our entire experience took almost 2 hours, which this was due to waiting for our waiter to show back up to the table. Now, I completely understand the situation of covid and waiting on other people, but there were only 6 other couples dining and a large wait staff. Not once were we offered refills or had a pitcher of water left at the table. Bread wasn’t brought until we mentioned it once the meal arrived. The dinner was excellent. We asked to see desert menus and it was 30 minutes before anyone checked to see if we were ready to order and had almost hit our two hour mark, so at this point we were frustrated and passed. Wish I would’ve had a better experience
It was nice overall, food was good, garden is ok except that building in which the restaurant is have construction scaffolds around for years and that affects the ambient.
The food was pricey for the quality offered. I’ve been to other Italian restaurants that offered delicious food at a lower price.
Food and service were great. We sat inside, and it’s a very nice dining room, but there was a rather strong musty/old building smell which was not too appetizing. I’ll sit outside next time. Not sure if it’s caused by dampness or just in the structure.
Always a good time at Francesca's. Our server Matt was fabulous and was attentive and efficient. My partner was not feeling well so we got the spinach pizza to take home to him and he loved it. It lasted to the second day and was still great. The only problem with the evening was I ordered the Lobster ravioli and it was undercooked. The noodles were tough and you had to work to cut a square in half. My friends fish was great as he darn near licked his plate. Overall a great time and worth coming again and again.
I ordered my filet medium and it came to me extra well done. The server was extremely busy so he didn't come to check on our food - by the time he came - my children were already ready to go and I didn't want to wait for a new one - so they comped the steak which was nice. The food was really expensive for what you got.
The menu has changed since the pandemic, but I think they’re doing the best they can with circumstances as they are.
Francesca’s always has delicious food and great service. And now, during a pandemic, they have proven that they can continue to offer that in addition to making sure guests feel comfortable dining with them by taking every precaution possible. Tables are wiped down between visits, menus are one-time use only. Staff are wearing masks and gloves. Tables are far enough apart. If you have been cautious about where you go during quarantine like I have, rest assured that you will enjoy Francesca’s.
It was great.
Wonderful experience from start to finish - as usual! Attentive, friendly service and excellent food that’s reasonably priced. Best martinis in Edgewater.
We celebrated a birthday! :)
Dinner was great for Father’s Day on the patio. Hope things get better for restaurants soon. Thanks for a nice dinner!
Wonderful, as always. So good to be back there enjoying the patio dining, wonderful service and delicious food.
It was cozy at the outdoor table, even though there was a cool breeze. My companion and I shared an an asparagus appetizer, then he had risotto and I had spaghetti and meatballs. Along with some glasses of Proseco, it was a wonderful meal.
I will be back!
Evening turned blustery and cold - will be glad to hear that outdoor heaters have arrived! My fault for not anticipating change in weather.
Delicious food and friendly wait staff. Go there often.
Wonderful experience and very safe.
Always have excellent service at Francesca’s and the food is fresh, authentic, and of great quality.
The service here is outstanding and the food is consistently good. I had the Napoletano pizza. I would have liked it crisper but it still tasted good. The arugula salad was also very good.
Francesca's has always been consistent with its food, and, the staff is usually pretty attentive. The food is delicious and the menu changes frequently with the exception of the main staples, which are always on the menu.
We went there on a Friday night. It was during the Covid 19 period before the decision for Chicago restaurants to close. There was enough social distance between diners. I had a perfect martini before dinner. The bruschetta was one of the best I’ve had. The Salmon with mushrooms and leek cream sauce was very good and the portion was the perfect size. My husband had the roast chicken with zucchini and goat cheese and liked that very much. We had tiramisu for dessert, which I don’t always like, but this one was great. We used to come here fairly often for birthday dinners, etc., but hadn’t been for several years. We will definitely return once the virus restrictions are lifted.
Always a great time. The food and service are the best. This is my favorite Italian spot in Chicago.
All 3 of our meals were excellent; two of us shared a Caesar salad and they split it for us; yummy profiteroles (our favorite) and excellent tiramisu. We will be back. Thank you, Francesca's.
Great staff and delicious food the neighbors and I always enjoy. A bit loud for an intimate dinner, but the ambient sounds are of people having fun.
We had an excellent experience at Francesca's on Bryn Mawr, as usual. The food and service are reliably good, and the ambience is pleasant.
Food was delicious and service was great.
I had pasta a oglio, sausage and peppers, chocolate chip mint ice cream. Servers were friendly and efficient. Food was good
One of the favorite places in the neighborhood. Friends from the burbs love going here whenever we all go to dinner. Will always come back.
We go to Francesca's Bryn Mawr for every special occasion. Great food, atmosphere, service!
The meals at Francesca's were excellent and the dessert was great.
Food was amazing. Service was good and food came out fast even though the restaurant was super busy. Loved our waiter.
Very busy, but with reservations I was able to get seated pretty quickly. Very good food, very good service, we will be back again.
Francesca’s is consistently a good choice: very good food, a mostly warmly casual atmosphere (a bit loud), and usually steady service. I’m there often. On my last visit, the bar was as behind in making drinks, and the service was a bit less attentive than usual. But still this is a favorite place.
Food was delicious, service was right on and the dining room atmosphere was lovely.
Great food Very good service also
This is by far one of the beat Italian restaurants in Chicago. The seafood options change regularly and are always perfectly cooked. I know there are other Francesca's in other locations in Chicago, but Bryn Mawr has the best atmosphere and the wait staff couldn't be nicer.
