Franck's Ratings and Reviews

We went here for my husbands birthday. We received a gift card and a recommendation to try the Brussels sprouts and meatloaf. We ordered both. The brussel sprouts were amazing! One of those life changing foods! The meatloaf was very flavorful and very rich. It did however lack in texture, but it was a very good entree. We saved room for dessert and we were slightly disappointed. We ordered the chocolate peanut butter dessert and it was okay. The flavors were all subtle and nothing stood out or really played off each other. It's a romantic environment with very attentive staff. Our overall experience was very positive. I would highly recommend this restaurant. Everyone needs to try these brussel sprouts!

Disappointed. Haven't been to Frank's for many years due to previous experience. Service by Mikael was superb. I had the Pork Shank which was excellent. The salad was terrible. The chef seems to try to complicate his flavors too much. The others in our party had the same feeling that the food was too complex with flavors that clashed.

Everything was just outstanding. The food is absolutely unique, delicious and beautiful. True artistry with food and tastes even better than it looks, if you can believe that! The only thing I would change is larger portion sizes, as even with a 5 course dinner was still on the verge of still being hungry, but perhaps that is just my "grew up poor" side showing, as I'm used to larger portion sizes. I will definitely be back though and hopefully soon! This place has me excited for more!

My husband and I ate at Franck's for Valentine's Day, and we were very impressed with the whole evening. They did a 4 course set menu for $80, and it was worth every penny. Both of us commented how nice it was not to have to think about ordering and knowing that we would be getting a phenomenal meal. We even asked the chef after dinner if we could request a set menu on other occasions because it was such a nice touch for an evening. The food was all outstanding, courses came out at the perfect temperature, and the soup was mouth-wateringly delicious and creative, as always. Thank you for a wonderful evening to Chef Robert, Mike, and our server, David. You guys knocked it out of the park again, and we will be back!

Food was wonderful, drinks were not strong at all. I ordered a moscow mule and I could not taste the vodka whatsoever, didn't appreciate that it was $12 afterwards. I left a note on the reservation asked to be seated in a romantic spot and they stuck us by the hall where the cold draft went through. There was more seating available as well. So that part was probably the most irritating.

Our waiter (I believe his name was Mikel?) was outstanding, knowledgeable and kept the pace of dinner just perfect. The crispy brussels sprouts were genuinely the best I've ever had. Temperature and texture was perfect, flavor was tart, and just the right balance of sweet and salty. We did a soup course of a banana curry soup and they live up to their awards for delicious and unusual soup. Wagyu sirloin and scallops tataki for the main course. Simply delicious! Watching the kitchen staff prepare our meal was a fun touch. The wine suggestion was delicious. Dining room was small, & itimate but enough open space that we didn't feel on top of the other tables. Loved it here and we will be back!

This was our second visit to Franck's....in 2017....we've actually been here dozens and dozens of times over the last four plus years and we have no intention of tinkering with that record. We're here every Tuesday that our schedule permits. Why Tuesday? Tuesday's Tasting Menu. Chef Robert Perkins does this amazing thing once a week. Four course tasting menu (Foodies will know what that is) including an unadvertised soup course. There are other 'tasting menus' in the valley. I've seen them as low as sixty dollars a person. Franck's is $35. In addition to this 'best deal in the valley', Franck's has a warm welcoming ambiance, a sensational wait and kitchen staff, and a parking lot thirty feet from the front door. Okay, I'm done!

The valet to start off was a really nice touch. Inside the restaurant it is really cozy with a fireplace and being able to watch your meal being prepped on a large tv inside the dining area. The food plated was really beautiful and ingredient combinations were really exciting. They do a limited number of burgers with a beer that you must mention in your reservation notes. I look forward to going back there just for that! Service was amazing!

Tasting menu this week was exceptional from the 1st course to the last (dessert) - creative, unique blend of ingredients, different flavors and textures, and ultimately very, very satisfying. After all these years, this place still delivers great cuisine!

Every meal we have at Franck's is fantastic. I swear the menu changes weekly, there is always something new to try but with plenty of classics on the menu as well. The braised golden beets with goat cheese panna cotta were excellent, along with the soup (a must have with every Franck's meal). The lamb belly was a new dish we tried tonight and was cooked perfectly. The wagu is always good and tonight wasn't any different. Chinese mustard and pomegranate really went well with the outstandingly tender beef. Brown butter tart and miso pot de creme complimented out our perfect meal. Thanks as always for the excellent time Franck's, I'm sure we will see you in a couple of weeks!

My wife and I decided to try Francis after reading all the great reviews. I have to say we weren't disappointed. It was great. My only caution is while they do have a few gluten free items, they are very limited, there were only 2 entrees to choose from.

When we first walked in you could tell that it was warm and inviting!! Took my spouse on a date night and it was 100% worth it!! They have a real fireplace and very nice table set up. The waiter actually spent time with us and explained dishes to us and helped us find the perfect bottle of wine! He didn't try and just rush and get through it, it was very very classy. We will for sure be going back.
The food: I can't say OMG enough!! She had the Cod and I have the Pork Shank! PHENOMENAL!!! The meat melted off the bone and was so rich and tasty. Her Cod was a nice size piece too and she ranked it #1 food she's ever eaten at (#1 is in London, can't really beat that, I'm sorry)
But if you're going for a friends dinner, date night, special occasion, etc. This is 10000% the place to go!
The cost: prices weren't that bad compared to other places that give you a hamsters portion. The size of the food is worth the money you pay for it. Drinks are inexpensive as well, my suggestion if you like wine, ask the waiter what they recommend and order the bottle. It seems like a lot of money but when it $12 per glass getting a bottle and getting 3-4 glasses out of it makes that a great deal!!

Franck's is our favorite restaurant and so long as Robert Perkins is the head chef, always will be. This unpretentious culinary wizard produces a weekly 'Tuesday Tasting Menu' that is four courses (including an unadvertised soup) that will have foodies coming back again and again. No, you don't get to 'choose' your meal - that's the job of the rest of the restaurant's full menu, but you DO get to enjoy one of the more memorable dining experiences most of us will ever have. Great presentation and amazing taste variety will have you talking about this place for a week.....so there has to be a 'catch', right?!! Tasting menus at other fine restaurants are pricey to say the least. Franck's will cost you $35. This IS the best deal in the valley...it's also the best food...and it 'happens' every Tuesday.

Easily the best in Utah!! We've been here a number of times and always fails to disappoint!! Everything is an exploration into how to use spices in a new, different and delicious way. We'll be continuing to come back often.

We had an out-of-town guest (who has traveled worldwide and eaten some of the finest restaurants in the world) and a mixed group of older adults and college-age adults. EVERYONE loved the food! We were seated near the screen where we could watch the kitchen and see our meals prepared. The service was fabulous and they were very kind when some of guests were 20 minutes late after our reservation. It's low key so people in jeans or people dressed up would feel welcome. The food is so fun because it is an adventure in dining with familiar items with new flavors. You won't break the bank for great food.

We went to Franck's for our anniversary, it was New Year's Eve so the menu was fixed and probably not what we would normally order. That being said we were aware of the menu and both interested in broadening our horizons - the food, service, and ambience were exceptional! We will definitely go back when we are in Salt Lake City. The chef is in fact a magician!

We had been told numerous times to try Franck's and were excited to do so. We signed on for the New Year's Eve 5 course meal, and were sorely disappointed. While a couple dishes had great flavor and their ingredients were very fresh, the recipes were weird and the flavor combinations just trying way too hard to be something that didn't need to be. We'll go back and try again, but beware the expensive special occasion menu like this.

New Year's eve at Franck's: This was our first time here for this particular event since our previous four New Year's Eves were spent at The Forage. THAT superb restaurant has closed. Having said that Pam and I are certainly no strangers to Franck's. We've been 'regulars' at Tuesday's Tasting Menu for over four years and Franck's continues to be our favorite restaurant. The head chef, Robert Perkins, is a big reason for that but he's backed up by a superb kitchen crew (loved that dessert, Angie!) and a talented wait staff (Wendy and David just to name two). Add a 'homey' interior with fireplace, great seasonal exterior and interior decorations, an attended parking lot fifty feet from the front door, a manager, Mike, that's always available to greet you, address special needs or answer questions...and you have a welcoming atmosphere that we consider to be the best in the valley. We'll be here next New Year's Eve as well. Before that, of course, we'll be her for twenty or so Tasting Tuesdays!!
