Try one of our creative cocktails, or choose a wine, from our wine list. Franny"s being Family owned, we have created a warm cozy atmosphere to visit with you friends and family, or have a quiet date night.
Four of us had a wonderful meal with wonderful service. The food is fresh and delicious. The service is friendly and timely. The place is adorable. The owner is friendly and appreciative. What more could one ask for?!
Always a pleasure to dine at Franny's Bistro...always delicious!
Nice environment, but seating is not very comfortable. For unknown to us reason, the waitress ignored my mother and my daughter completely. Food was good, but we waited about 45 min for it. We ran out of water, but it was not refilled. Dessert was excellent, though. The owner of the restaurant responded to my daughter's google review in a very defensive way.
Always Fresh and Always Delicious!
Food was exceptionally prepared - classic yet unique flavors. To start the cocktails were awesome, wine selection broad but could be more diverse. Salad could have been a meal with ample portions and great contrasts. Service was exceptional despite server noting she was new it did not show in the service. Ambiance was OK but we were near the door and it was chilly at times. Would definitely return and try something else on the wide assortments offered on the menu.
Great ambiance and food; pleasant server. Excellent food... just a little more pricey than we expected
Absolutely loved the food choices and the ability to get a local bottle of wine! Service was lovely and very friendly. A friend is visiting Camden next month and she’s already made a reservation on our recommendation!
I love the new owners and the new food. The only thing I would ask is for those of us that are old and have bad backs please either add more cushions or get new chairs. As you can see that didn't get in my way from having a delicious dinner the lady at the bar was lovely as was our waiter
average experience, met but did not exceed expectations.
We had a very good meal, the food was interesting and very well prepared. The menu was very varied and there are a lot of things I'd like to try. The seating is very close, and on our night, overly crowded, we had to sit on our coats. We were also both very cold as it was a frigid night and the table was next to a large uninsulated window. I think we will wait for summer before trying this one again.
Everything was perfect. We were especially happy that the acoustics. The area rugs on the floor created a nicer vibe AND helped soften the noise. Very much appreciated!
I love Frannys Bistro! Love the food...love the friendly staff. Love the grits!
Great food but they didn't do anything special for a Birthday that they were told about earlier.
Everything was top notch and service was exceptional. We hope to return again soon!
Thank you very much see you again soon!
Thank you very much!
As soon as I walked in, the atmosphere was warm and cozy. Beautiful setting. I brought my friend for her birthday and it was very special. There were so many great choices that it was a challenge to decide what to order. The Arctic Char special was amazing. They served dessert with a candle and sang happy birthday. The hosts took the time to visit and ask about our meal. I'm looking forward to returning soon!
Thank you Nancy, we look forward to seeing you again!
This was our second visit in as many weeks and we were not disappointed. The food offerings are from creative recipes that have been given much thought and are masterfully prepared. They are beautifully plated and presented to you on artisan pottery. The service is attentive to just the right level. It's a relaxing evening in a very comfortable atmosphere. Do yourself a favor and plan a visit.
My go to place when I come up from NY. Ambiance, great food and genuine hospitality make it a restaurant not to miss. Just recommended it to some people staying at 16 Bayview.
Enjoyed the special occasion very much. Food was superb.
We are very happy you enjoyed your special occasion with us! Thank you for the review.
This is not your everyday restaurant chef. He is extremely knowledgeable and skilled. The offerings we enjoyed each had multiple layers of flavor enhanced with creative recipes. This was the most memorable meal we've enjoyed in a long time. We enjoyed the former restaurant which now with new ownership and a new name has taken it to a new level. Dinner was outstanding, the atmosphere upscale with linen tablecloths and decorative touches offering much charm. We're most eager to return.
Thank-you very much for your review!!
We are very happy you enjoyed your meal, thank you for reviewing us!
Service was excellent, portions were filling, food was unique and delicious, great selection of craft beer and wine.
We went to Frannys twice in two weeks while on a visit with my mom who lives locally, and had wonderful experiences both times. The second time we were there, we were amazed at how quiet it was, as nearly every table was full. We found the portions to be generous and the food cooked beautifully. Between the two visits we had spring rolls, a lovely salad, scallops prepared two different ways, and roast chicken; all were absolutely delicious. The staff was very welcoming, friendly and professional. We would highly recommend Frannys and I know we’ll definitely return!
Thank you very much for your review! Happy New Year to you and your Mom.
A truly quaint place tucked in the center of Camden. Food was excellent and the server was extremely pleasant and efficient. Definitely a place we will come back to the area to visit again.
Thank you very much for your review!
We were looking for a cosy place to eat and rest after a long drive. The restaurant is warm and inviting. The staff were all very nice. Our waitress might have been new because she didn’t offer bread due to appetizers coming so quickly she said; we had to ask for it. She didn’t offer to clear plates off small table but another waitress saw it needed it. She didn’t frequent the table to ask about condiments... so she might have been new. We did like the shrimp dumplings and the creative cucumber salad. I had the chicken and the mashed potatoes and root veggies. Veggies not done enough for me but had a very good flavor. My husband had the beet salad and it was good. Overall the menu wasn’t appealing to us but the desserts sounded anazing.
Very good food, maybe a small menu tho. Good wines, excellent service, surprisingly quiet at 7 on a Friday night in December. Always a couple of interesting specials, always linked to local farm fresh.
We had a really nice dining experience this past Saturday evening. Our wait staff person (Shonie??) was very attentive and had a delightful personality. We had chicken and haddock as our main courses. Both were outstanding along with a very good bottle of French wine. We hadn't been to Frannys for a while but will make it a point to be back sooner.

Thank-you very much for your review. Shiyan was your waitperson, and I will be sure to send her your review :)
Great place! Good food, lots of choices. Good drinks too.
Thank-you very much for our review!
It was my second visit to Franny's and was great both times. It is warm and cozy and the staff very attentive. I love the menu and drinks. Two friends came who had not been in before and they thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Looking forward to going again.
Great food. The staff was great. The service excellent. Would go back again.
Service was a bit slow due to few waitstaff but as our waitress was friendly and professional and the food excellent we'll happily return!
Excellent food, service, and ambience. Would recommend highly!
There were four people in our party and each of us chose a different dish. Every one of them was excellent. The service was prompt and friendly. We're all coming back soon.
Fabulous dinner, food delicious, warm, relaxing welcoming ambience and excellent service. Would definitely return.
Wonderful. Food was fabulous
Excellent food! Attentive service. Cozy setting away from the tourists in downtown Camden
Wonderful meal. One of my favorite places in Camden. The chicken dish is amazing!!
Fantastic meal. Food was creative and delicious. Hard to decide as so many great options. Service was excellent and great ambiance too!
Great atmosphere. Great presentation. Meats were expertly prepared. Loved the Calamari, unique preparation but would have been great with a warm simple marinara.
Everything about Franny's was amazing. This was our first visit to Camden and our innkeeper recommended Franny's when she learned that we're foodies. We had the duck confit salad, the chicken and the halibut special and each was spot on. We could honestly eat the duck salad every day; each element compliments the others perfectly. We can't wait to return to Camden or to Franny's.
