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!!

This was a great dining experience. The food was a good portion and very tasty. The menu was updated. The wait staff was attentive and intuitive. Drinks and tableware was replenished quickly. Furthermore the waiter recommended a wine similar to one we had earlier that was everything promised and the price point was similar. No gouging. All in all a fantastic culinary experience.

Best Chef: Robert Perkins. Best tasting menu: Tuesdays. Best 'value' for tasting menu: $35. Excellent wait staff and ambiance. This is our favorite restaurant on so many levels. They serve comfort food as well as eye popping variations. We're here as often as our schedule permits.

I've only had a few dining experiences in SLC that can compete (Valter's Osteria comes to mind, as does the now closed Cafe Fresca). Easily the best main course I've had in years, if not ever, and we eat out a ton and really, really love food. I ordered the fried chicken with the AMAZING sauce (regularly on the menu we were told), my spouse ordered the calamari steak with ham risotto and ham foam (not a regular on the menu), and both were just beyond words delicious. I will say the beets appetizer was only good, with the yogurt panna cotta and beet combo seeming a bit unbalanced, maybe missing some sweetness (I think a touch of honey and it would have been amazing, but as is it was simply good). But the entrees...I just can't wait to go back.

Excellent choice by my business associates... they had been there before and were very impressed. It met all expectations.
Great food, excellent wine list, and a terrific young man that was our waiter. We will come back.

We've been here dozens of times for Tuesday's Tasting menu but THIS week's visit to our favorite restaurant happened to be on a Saturday....so fried chicken and meat loaf it was!
Before I forget it, Franck's introduced a 'tomato pie' to their 'starter' menu within the last year and it's just impossible to do justice to that creation in my description here. Let's just say it's one of our favorite appetizers of all time.
Franck's is a little piece of dining heaven. Joined at the ownership hip with Tuscany - they even share a parking lot - Pam and I clearly prefer the more intimate setting at Franck's. Oh, and we also prefer the food. We both 'like' Tuscany but it doesn't have the 'flair' of a meal at Franck's. Robert Perkins is the head chef here and he is a treasure. He's supported by a talented kitchen and wait staff but it's Robert that makes Franck's unique. If he ever leaves I'm going to have to slit my wrists.

I have been fortunate to have eaten at some of the finest restaurants around. I would rank this in the top 3 - it was outstanding. The atmosphere is comfortable and intimidate but not overly fancy. The food and flavor and creativity are off the charts. Get the Francks speciality steak it is unbelievable!!! Would highly recommend you won't be disappointed.

The fried Brussels sprouts were fantastic - as usual, and the unique soup was bowl-licklingly good. The fried chicken was tasty, with a perfect fried coating.
We were very disappointed with the Wagyu short ribs. Either the sauce or the meat itself had a flavor that seemed to be spoiled. It could have been an odd flavor profile, but it definitely smelled and tasted "off".
We have NEVER had one single item that we didn't love at Franck's - until now. We will be back because the service is always perfect - and the food usually is as well, but it may take awhile to forget that unfortunate taste.

Delicious food with a unique flare in almost every dish. The salad wasn't that great - just a baby romaine chopped in thirds with a fun dressing and sprinkled additions, but the brussel sprouts were amazing. And I don't even usually like brussel sprouts. The wagyu steak was also superb with a very subtle asian flare.
The atmosphere was quiet, at least when they first open. It was too cold to dine outside, but from what I saw it would be a very nice outdoor dining experience. The restaurant even has their own herb garden.
Expect to pay close to $100 for a couple, and that's without any wine. We will definitely be back some day to try their tasting menu and for future, special occasions.

Good food, friendly staff, great experience overall. Only thing that was slightly irritating is how long we waited to have our orders taken. The people before us got their orders taken before ours, and our waiter took quite some time to deliver just a Coke to our table. But hey, it happens and sometimes you forget things. Overall, I love Francks.

Every time we visit Franck's, we have a great experience. The food is creative and the presentation is beautiful. Always a huge fan of the meatloaf and Brussels sprouts which are things I would NEVER typically order OR eat!

A little disappointed. Not the best tasting menu I have had at Francks. The tasting menu has increased in price from $30 to $35. Portions seemed smaller (entree was two small street tacos) $15 corkage fee is too high. Service was excellent as always.

We hadn't been to Franck's in awhile and thought we'd go back. We were pretty disappointed, especially given previous experiences. Our waitress ("Jessica") was lackluster at best; this was made even more apparent by the clearly excellent service being provided by one of her colleagues ("Mikael") taking care of the tables around us. Our "Romaine" salad was not romaine but head lettuce. The special appetizer, an ahi poke, was chunks of clearly frozen, tasteless ahi in a watery sauce. The scallop entree with risotto was very good, but the salmon entree was about a 2 oz piece of fish, overcooked (not hard to understand, given how small/thin it was) in a unremarkable sauce.
We've had good meals at Franck's before (maybe we should have stuck with the staples: meatloaf and friend chicken), but for an "imaginative" restaurant, this was pretty lame.
