Franck's Ratings and Reviews
Excellent as usual.

Still the overall best in the valley
You all have your favorite restaurants....and this is mine (ours). Tuesday's Tasting Menu is a revelation: best 'value', best variety, and best presentation. The wait staff is professional and attentive; Brian and Wendy are 'our' personal wait staff. Just kidding.....but only just. We have a chance to observe other staff during dinner but these two are our long-time favorites. The kitchen staff, led by head chef Robert Perkins, is exceptional. Mike, the maitre d keeps everything humming AND he's responsible for the gorgeous flowers in front of the restaurant entrance. This is a charming place that we can't recommend highly enough. BUT WE KEEP TRYING! LOL
My lady and I went there on a whim right before she took me to a show. I had been dying to try it, and it was the perfect time. We were the first ones there and had the patio all to ourselves. The waiter was a riot, and the food was definitely worth the cost. We will go back again and again.
Best meal here yet
I have dined here before and enjoyed it however this meal was exceptional. Our server, Wendy, remembered me and was top notch as before. A creative romaine "Cesar" salad was a good start but the fried chicken was one of the best entrees I have had in a very long time. They were able to provide two breast pieces. The coating was light and crisp with no grease and the meat was flavorful, juicy and tender. I enjoyed every bite. Will go back for more next time I am in Salt Lake area.
Went for Mother's Day Dinner. Menu was a price fixe deal, which I was not aware of, so you had no choices for any of the foods. Food was good (although not excellent as I was anticipating), and the proportions were quite small. While finer restaurants do typically serve smaller portions, this seemed even less than that standard. I heard very nice things about the establishment, and this was my first time there, having recently moved to Utah from the Midwest. I may give them another try, hoping that their full menu and service on a normal day will be much better than I experienced this past weekend.
This was my first time going to Franck's. I absolutely loved it. The atmosphere was very nice and elegant! The food was absolutely to die for! I would recommend anyone who is thinking about trying this place to just do it, you will not regret it!

An amazing restaurant! This was my first visit and I was extremely pleased! Delicious food, wonderful service... The only regret I have is that I didn't order more!
Delicious as always!
My friends took me here for my birthday dinner and it was delicious. I loved the brussel sprouts appetizer. We also had the beets as an appetizer and they were delightful. I had the weekly burger special and it was so incredible good. Yum. Never disappointed.
The food is always good. We especially love trying their soups - very creative.
The presentation, selection, creativity, service, flavor and ambiance was outstanding. I have already recommended to a friend.
BF loved the food, I thought it was horrible.
My boyfriend loved the good, I thought it was horrible. The bread was good anyway!
Frequent diner always a pleasure.

Ok experience, too small and too noisy
This was our first time at the restaurant. The ambience was good, though we thought the restaurant was very small with tables closely positioned. Unfortunately we had a very inconsiderate roudy people next to ours which made our experience less enjoyable. Our waiter was great but I didn't see what the whole fuss was about related to their "meat loaf". The food was ok. It wasn't fantastic. I much prefer Kimi's Chop and Oyster restaurant though. The thing that ruined it for us was the person who was clearing our table. All of us noticed his poor attitude whereby we had to point this out to our main waiter who was great. Our dessert took way to long. We waited and waited and it was not worth the wait. The custard cake was not moist and horrible. I'd not order any desserts from Franks for sure. My cocktail, which was some sort of a martini was way too sweet. It was then watered right down to correct its sweetness. There were hardly any alcohol in it. I felt that it was a waste of my money for sure.
We love coming to Franks.
My wife and I have been coming to Franks for 7 years or so. It's our favorite place to go for special occasions. I don't think you can find another restaurant with food that enlightens your taste buds the way the food at Franks does. They do a fantastic job of making you feel appreciated. The manager comes over and say Hello every time we come. All the staff there are extremely nice. Like I said, we love coming to Franks.
"I loved the relaxed feel of your establishment.
Service, food presentation and our waitress were excellent. The meatloaf was to die for and the Sea Bass was fantastic. My wife enjoyed the Salmon which was outstanding... Hats off the Franck's and Staff.
Incredible food and service
I loved everything about Francks except the noise level. Delicious food, great service, wonderful location and dining room. Best food I have ever tasted! I just couldn't hear what my companion was saying.
First timers...but not last timers!
We feel lucky to have been able to make last-minute reservations and Francks last Saturday evening. Everything tasted great and we will definitely return!
Where does the 'excellence' end??
Tuesday, April 12th. Ho hum....another boringly exceptional Tasting Menu - Starter: Diver Scallop, Aerated Chorizo, Clam chowder, Lemon Puree. Main: Surf and Turf on Toast - Grey Goose Battered White Shrimp, Fromage Blanc, Shaved Wagyu Sirloin. Dessert: Parmesan Creme Brulee, Tomato Jam, Vanilla Bean-Tomato Ice Cream. Oh......and lest we forget, there's always an unadvertised 'soup' course that was an ward-winner in a 2016 Utah competition and the most incredible combination of sweet and savory you'll ever taste in a soup. This is a 'Tuesday' only tasting menu, fellow diners. Different every week and always memorable. Franck's also offers a full traditional menu but we're stuck on this particular offering. Those of you familiar with Tuscany will know EXACTLY where Franck's is located: immediately to the south. Both restaurants share a patio and parking lot. Next time you're thinking of going to Tuscany, 'treat' yourself to Franck's instead.
At first a little uncertain, I came away a big fan of Burger Thursday. An excellent Wagyu sirloin patty, creatively dressed and seasoned. Paired with a nice Epic MidMountain ale. If you want cheap, there is the Cottonbottom across the road. But if you want experience what a talented kitchen staff can do with the hamburger, this is a great place to visit on Thursdays. Warning...they DO sellout.
Best 'deal' in the valley.......
I'm referring to Tuesday's Tasting Menu: three superb courses plus an 'unadvertised' soup course. This week? a Corvina Sea Bass starter, a delicious sweet lemon soup, a Pork Belly Flauta main, and a Dulce de Leche Cheese Cake dessert. $30: as I said, the best deal in the valley and everything is prepared to perfection and presented in a way that will make you think that $30 must be a misquote. Oh, they have a full menu and everything we've tried at Franck's has been delicious but we're stuck on that Tasting Tuesday gig. BTW, we're also hooked on an excellent Pinot Noir by Meiomi in case that wine vintage appeals to you. For those of you who actually read these reviews you'll recognize the frequency of our visits to Franck's. That's no accident. There are many fine restaurants in the valley but this is our favorite.
Always a great experience
If you have never been to Francks you are missing out! Some of the best food in Utah hands down, not your normal fare.

Food and service were great. Everyone out of four loved their dinner - all different entrees.
We have been to Franck's several times. The food, service, wine list, and location are all wonderful.
Nice Easter brunch.
Nice Easter brunch.
Their Easter four course brunch was a wonderful dining experience. Inventive and well executed...featuring some great locally-sourced items, and lovely use of salmon and brisket in featured elements. Capped with a marvelous dessert that reinvents old thoughts of tapioca. Too cool for outside dining...but soon. Suggestion to dining families: when there is a set, fixed menu...think about how your children will respond to what is offered, rather than asking the kitchen to go "off script"...

Our waiter took special care of our birthday party of 6. He explained each entree and keep our wine glasses topped off. Consider buying your wine at the restaurant, they have a huge list....and they charge $20 for each corkage. Good was Devine, service impeccable, we will all. Be back, again!
Franck's burger Thursday is a great opportunity to dine lavishly and spend moderately. My wife and I order the burger sans bun, and don't miss the buns a bit. More broadly, Franck's is, in my view, among the world's best restaurants (and I've traveled extensively worldwide). If I have a criticism, it isn't about the quality of fare as much as about the escalating prices of special events. To be clear, Franck's wine maker dinners are a thing of rare beauty and epicurean delight. Recently, though, the per person cost (before tax and tip) have climbed north of $100. We like the occasional indulgence, but have experienced magnificent dining at Franck's for somewhat less than that. I'm disappointed that I've felt it appropriate to pass on such opportunities, and hope that diners less inclined to balk at those affairs will keep them taking place. The food and wine are brilliant, but at some point, which in my case Franck's has begun to cross, I have to decide good sense ought to prevail over hedonism. All of that said, Franck's restaurant is much more than special events. Items on the menu, as well as the wine list, will remind no one of even high end chain options (in terms of price, but more importantly in terms of quality). It is truly a culinary gem.
Love this amazing restaurant
Franck's is a hidden treasure of a restaurant. You need to find it! This place is special, like you stepped back in time a few decades to when people dressed up and dined. The garden entry is simple and quiet. Once inside, you realize you just walked into one of those places all your friends wish they knew about. The servers are friendly with great interest in finding the food you will enjoy the most. The food is designer comfort food, created by a Chef that knows how to feed all of your senses. It's gorgeous on the plate and delicious to taste. Love.

Food was amazing. We shared three appetizers and then split a main course and a dessert. I love the fondue appetizer and the meatloaf is incredible. I've never had a bad meal at Franck's
Franck's is the noisiest restaurant I've ever eaten at. It was loud and just flatly obnoxious. It was extremely hard to understand the waiter, although he was very pleasant and could sense the difficulty we had. The food was ok. We passed on the appetizers. All but one of them had a bunch of cheese and the other had candied nuts. That says something but I'm not quite sure what. Three of us had the Escolar and one had the pork shank. Nothing particularly special, but not bad dishes. We also passed on desert. Nothing was appealing to any of us. Great but very expensive wine list. We had glasses of the pairings offered on the menu, and perhaps that was the best part of the meal. I won't be returning. Too many other great places in this valley.
Happy 44th Birthday
My husband and I don't eat out much, because I cook a lot. We are very particular where we eat out as well. We have had some negative experiences with fine dining places and feel we don't get our "bang for our buck". Franck's has restored our faith in dining. From now on, we consider ourselves regular customers and recommend Franck's to all of our friends and family. The food is amazing and "Biscuit" presents his dishes well. The wait staff is extremely friendly, attentive, and knowledgable about the menu. I am grateful that my husband met me at the door all dressed up and suggested that we finally try Franck's, because we had been wanting to try it.
Still the best......
See my other two hundred fifty thousand reviews of this restaurant to get an idea of how Pam and I feel about Franck's. Okay...it's not two hundred and fifty thousand....but it's a lot! This continues to be our favorite restaurant in the valley and Tuesday's Tasting Menu continues to be our choice once there. Chef Robert Perkins is indeed gifted and he's backed up by an excellent kitchen staff. The servers are outstanding with Brian and Wendy getting special mention. Mike, the excellent Maitre D, tops it all off. This is a private residence that has been turned into a dining delight. Can't recommend it highly enough.....but we keep trying!
Tuesday Tasting at Franck's...Superb
Tried our first Tuesday Tasting on March 8th to celebrate a birthday. It will not be our last! The food was delicious, creative, wonderful. The wine pairings were perfect. Our servers could not have been better, professional, friendly, attentive (without hovering). An overall delightful experience. Highly recommended.
Since Franck left the restaurant severa ...
Since Franck left the restaurant several years ago, the food has not been as good. We ordered 2 appetizers and 2 entrees. Two of them were over salted and the Brussels sprouts had too much balsamic vinegar on them. A little goes a long way! $20 for wine corkage is a bit much. This isn't Park City!
They just want to make you very happy
We eat at this neighborhood gem pretty often. Why? They just want to do everything possible to ensure you have a good time. The food is consistently excellent, wait staff is great and the manager really cares about delivering a really good experience. We are so fortunate to have this restaurant close to our home.
Anybody who actually 'reads' Open Table reviews know three things: we have a 'lot' of reviews for this restaurant, every one is positive, and we're big fans of Tuesday's Tasting menu. We've recommended Franck's to a dozen couples over the years and there's one common theme in their replies: we had no idea where this restaurant 'IS' - SO... almost everyone in the valley knows where Mark Eaton's 'Tuscany' restaurant is and Franck's is immediately south of Tuscany; in fact they share the same parking lot! Fans of Tuscany whom occasionally may like something 'other than' Italian should try this fine restaurant....now that you all know where Franck's IS! LOL

The soup was AMAZING!!! Mushroom white chocolate truffle?!? Sounds not great but was sensational. Love this place.
Franck's was once again the best eating experience I have ever had in Salt Lake. The flavors, the inventiveness of what they are creating, seriously unprecedented in the city. A must experience.
Really nice experience
My husband and I dined at Franck's last weekend. It was only my second visit to this restaurant and my husband's first. The first visit, we experienced a couple mishaps, (service oriented) nothing very bad, but was a little disappointing given what I had heard about the place. This visit was excellent in every way, so now I know they pay attention to detail and that our first visit was not the norm. It made me very happy to know that now we have a wonderful new choice for fabulous dining and will not hesitate to go back or recommend to friends.
