Franck's Ratings and Reviews

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 fantasti ...
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.

Franck's is our favorite restaurant. I've written so many reviews for this place I'm running out of ideas....except for stating how exceptional Tuesday's Tasting Menu is.....week after week, oh, and the excellent wait staff, and then there's Robert Perkins, the head chef....where did they get this guy?!! I told Mike, the maitre d, that if Robert ever leaves Franck's - we're out of here!!! In the meantime we encourage you to join us on Tuesdays...we're there at least a couple of times a month. This week's 'main' was smoked boneless pork ribs. You should have been there!

The brussel sprouts appetizer is out of this world. I would go there just for that. For the main course I had the meatloaf, which was melt in your mouth delicious. The service was excellent from the valet to the wait staff.

Francks has become the anniversary restaurant of choice for my wife and I. The service is superb and your drinks never go empty. The waiters are extremely knowledgeable and are able to answer all questions regarding the menu, let alone food. When you reserve a table at Francks, it is literally your table for the entire evening. There is ZERO rush. The waiter gives you time to converse with your party, order your appetizers, and enjoy your evening at the restaurant. Again, this place is all about timing, and Francks wants you to enjoy every minute of it. After you order your main course, the waiters time the situation. They want you to enjoy your evening, and once again, they aren't rushing you just to fill the table once you leave. It is your table to enjoy for the entire night if you wish.
Francks is top notch and easily a top 5 restaurant in Utah any given year. On our most recent visit, my wife ordered their salmon dish and said it was the best she's ever had, and she has seafood everywhere we go. I had the buffalo tenderloin and it was awesome!
If you are a picky eater, this isn't the place for you. But, for those that enjoy food and want a more one-on-one night with that special someone, you can't get much better than Francks in Utah.
Expect to pay anywhere from $90-130 (a steal for this caliber of meal in my opinion) for two people if you don't order wine. If you do order wine, pricing can escalate quickly.

We did not like Franck's and will probably not go back nor will our friends. Most of the dishes we all tried were too managed, too prepared, and too sweet. 4 out of 6 entrees came to the table cold. The meatloaf was not good!! This is one of their touted specialties. The server was however very good.
We're at Franck's two to three times a m ...
We're at Franck's two to three times a month, for 'Tasting Tuesday'. Robert Perkins, the head chef, supervises a group of talented surrogates to provide a dining experience that cannot be matched for taste, presentation, and value anywhere else in the valley. $30 for a four course dining 'experience' that will have you talking about it for days. Franck's HAS a full-fledged regular menu and, early on in our four-year experience here, we tried other menu items and were always impressed. Still....Tuesday's Tasting Menu is now our constant companion and we're here every Tuesday that our schedule permits.
Directly to the south of Tuscany (and sharing the same parking lot) is this little goldmine of fabulous food, excellent table service, and friendly ambiance. This is our favorite restaurant.

We had dinner at Franck's for our anniversary, due to a friend's recommendation. We started with the unbelieveable three chess fondue - out of this world! I had the chicken and my husband had the meatloaf. We loved the meal and the service was fabulous! We will be back!
Thank you very much!

Beautiful location. Love the small restaurant feel. But the food was too heavy. Sauces were too much. Veggies were drowned out. Meat was smothered. A shame. Would do great with a lighter, fresher, healthier menu.

Franck's 'Tasting Tuesday' is still the best value in the valley at $30. We've found nothing else that comes close; always a series of taste surprises served with elegance and flair. We're there a couple of times a month at the minimum and that's not going to change.

The food we ordered (salmon and the short ribs) was amazing and presented in a beautiful way. The service was great and they were wonderful about explaining the menu and making recommendations. The only critique we would have would be with the dessert. My wife and I both ordered something that sounded wonderful, but was not worth the expense and neither item we ordered was very exciting or necessarily flavorful.

Franck's is one of those places where everything stands out. Everything from an impeccable menu to first rate service. Our server, David, did an excellent job of putting together a fantastic meal. I typically let the server or chef pick for me, and Franck's never disappoints.
