Franck's Ratings and Reviews
First time is the last time.
Food was ok. Nothing all that special. Service slow and messed up our order. We were there to celebrate but left frustrated and not impressed. I would like to believe it was an isolated incident but it was so bad I wouldn't risk another attempt
Over priced over hyped ruined a special night. We won't be back...ever!
Delicious and unique fine dining! Great for foodies or a romantic date (or foodies on a romantic date) or a special occasion. Locally sourced food, creatively prepared with a beautiful presentation. The fried chicken is a menu staple. The chicken is coated with an excellent crust which is fried to a deep, golden perfection, revealing the most juicy chicken you've ever tasted! Try the whole menu (it's all good!) but if you can't decide, go with the fried chicken. You won't regret it!
We live two blocks from East High; downtown restaurants are all within five to ten minutes drive time and we do visit many of them a couple of times a year.
We've just finished our fifth 'Tasting Tuesday' at Franck's; this coming week will be the sixth - in a row. While our personal schedule doesn't permit us to go every week we do get there an average of twice a month; we've now been there over sixty times for this incomparable dining treat - at $35 it's also the best 'deal' in the valley.
Fort those of you keeping score, we have just completed four weeks in a row at Frank's 'Tasting Tuesday'. The coming week will make five.
So why this intense loyalty? Best chef and kitchen staff. Best wait staff. Best management. Co-best internal ambiance (along with Log Haven). Best external ambiance (okay, so La Caille has the best external ambiance but Franck's is the best of 'small' properties). Best 'tasting menu': content and price. Best overall menu variety. Great wine list. Great table presentation. Best parking convenience. Oh, and best food in the valley!!
The food was phenomonal. The chefs are amazing, if I could afford it I would go to try the tasting menu every week. Our server was very helpful with the menu, and the overall service was wonderful. The ambiance is cozy and delightful. One of my favorite restaurants.
Another awesome meal at Franck's. Mother's Day menu was exceptional. Great food and as usual very attentive service. The presentation and mixture of ingredients that you would not expect is always amazing. This is the best place for a nice special occasion meal in SLC. Would also recommend for the weeknight burgers or the other specials they do during the week where it is less expensive but you get a really great meal and experience.
We were with a party of 4 and 2 meals came out and we waited and waited maybe 10 min. they were horrified when they realized their error and brought the other meals out and offered us free dessert - which we took them up on and they were amazing! Great customer service - thats the way its done!
We were celebrating both a birthday and an anniversary. Mike was so awesome- he went outside and put a table cloth up over the existing shade to help with the sun that was shining in one of the persons eyes that was with us. He then took care of two appetizers we had ordered...much to our surprise! The food was great and also the service! I highly recommend this restaurant!
Everything about the dinner was fabulous. We had the fondue which was amazing, crispy brussell sprouts to die for. Our group had the swordfish, fried chicken and the burger. All were above and beyond what we expected. Everyone was tasting everything and loving it. The occasion was for my son's 22nd birthday. We took a pic at the end of the dinner and my son posted it on face book with the caption "Fabulous Birthday, Franck's is a must" The service was the best I have ever had. Already planning for our nest time. Thank you Franck's!!!!!
This was my third visit to Franck's and it was outstanding as usual. The menu always sparks a conversation and new comers quickly realize they're in for something different. I would say my only complaint is that the menu tends to be on the sweet side of things as opposed to savory but that's typical of Utah fine dining across the board. But this is truly a minor point. Overall I love coming to this place and look forward to going again.
So what was on Franck's 'Tuesday Tasting' menu this week? Oh - pretty much what all of you were planning for dinner at home.
Starter: a new mushroom based salad featuring tempura morels and sweet & sour shiitakes. The underlying pesto sauce is really really good.
Soup: Watermelon & chili with goat cheese; Robert Perkins, Franck's head chef, has won awards for his sweet-savory soups.
Main: Pig cheek: Grilled and glazed. Preparing this is a long process but for those foodies who have never tried it - and do so - I predict you will 'look' for it in the future. The tenderness of this dish is amazing.
Dessert: Applause to Angie for her goat cheese & thyme creme brulee. Truly inspired.
Pam and I are here every Tuesday our schedule permits. We love this place.
Franck's never disappoints. Mike, the host, is such a nice and fun guy. Service is impeccable, attentive, but not overbearing. Mike suggested that I try a glass of cabernet franc; when I didn't like it, he switched out my glass for something else - complimentary! I highly recommend the brussel sprouts, meatloaf, and carrot cake. This is my go-to place for special occasions.
Franck's is a superb neighborhood restaurant in the Cottonwood area, just south of Tuscany Restaurant. They share the same parking lot - but there the similarity ends. Franck's has a more varied menu - including a 'Tuesday Tasting Menu' that is out of this world. That Tasting Menu is also the best deal in the valley at thirty five dollars.
Food variety and taste, excellent wait-staff, lovely table presentation, attentive management, warm ambiance and Chef Robert Perkins are all compelling reasons we love this restaurant. We've been to Tuscany several times in the last four years; we've been to Franck's over fifty times in that same time period.
We went to Tastng Tuesday and it was a definite culinary experience! The food was not only delicious but inspired, full of different flavors and textures. Our favorites were the fried chicken breast with a crunchy crust and a spicy coconut sauce and the chocolate panacotta with blueberry sorbet. I also enjoyed the hot cherry, cracked pepper soup with goat cheese. And the apetiser...white shrimp with yogurt foam and chive blossom! Yummmm!
My second visit to Franck's and another excellent experience. It has long been on my list of favorite restaurants in the Salt Lake area, but I think I will now advance it to most favorite. A bit of wait tonight for the entrée, but well worth it. Quality does take some time. Attentive server checked in with us at just the right interval. Wagyu beef entrée was very good and priced better than most. But the entrée was exceeded by the excellent tomato pie appetizer, peppercorn soap, and dessert. I'll head back there soon and try the tasting menu next time.
'Tasting Tuesday' at Franck's: best value (and food) in the valley.
Best Chef: Robert Perkins.
Best serving, kitchen, and management staffs.
Best (along with Log Haven) ambiance.
Best exterior appearance.
Best access to restaurant from parking area.
This just might be our favorite restaurant. LOL LOL
My husband and I had a lovely evening at Franck's on Tuesday. I chose to do the tasting menu, and my husband had a 3 course meal plus dessert from the regular menu. We each tasted a bit of everything, and we ate and loved every bite, aside from a small bit of carrot cake that we were too full to finish. The food was beautiful, delicious, and creative. The dining room was cozy; the staff friendly, knowledgeable, and attentive. We were there for 2 hours, but it was very relaxing, and neither of us realized how much time had passed until we were finished and bothered to look at the time. We will go back again when time and finances allow. Worth every penny!
We always love going to Franck's, and this visit was no exception. We tried the new smashed beet appetizer, and it was delicious. We have a hard time choosing between all our favorites on the menu, but went with the fondue and tomato pie for appetizers. The brussels sprouts are another favorite appetizer. Chef Robert's soups are constantly changing and so so good. I really don't look at what the soup on the menu is anymore, I just order it because I know I won't be disappointed. We had meatloaf and fried chicken for entrees, and my mouth is watering now just thinking about it. Save room for dessert too, even if you just share one at the table. Can't wait for our next visit!
Practically everything about our experience was fantastic at Franck's The location was in a beautiful, private setting. It made me feel like I was getting away from it all.
Our server, Tristan, was warm and friendly. He gave us a brief explanation of what was available and made it easy for me to figure out what I wanted to order. We were able to watch the chefs as they prepared the food. There was a screen that was available for anyone to watch The presentation of the food was pure artwork.
