Franck's Ratings and Reviews
We have been to Franck's twice now and can't wait to go back. Always delicious and creative dishes. We are never disappointed. It's not cheap, but I feel the value for the experience is very good. The service is excellent with very attentive wait staff. The ambiance is casually elegant and small. The sound level allows you to have an intimate conversation with your dining companions. Very extensive wine list. Go! You will not be disappointed.
The vibe is casual but classy, the dining room is quiet enough to converse without straining ones voice. The menu is not extensive but uses fresh local ingredients. The roasted beet appetizer with honey goat cheese was beautiful and delicious. Our server was extremely knowledgeable about the menu but was also efficient and unobtrusive. Parking is convenient (all valet on the Saturday evening we were there). Our reserved table was ready when we arrived.
Once again, another perfectly lovely anniversary dinner, this time for our 22nd. Every aspect of our meal was beautifully prepared and a feast for the eyes and the mouth. Our server, Marla, was very attentive, but without hovering. We started with the Tomato Pie, which I highly recommend - I never knew tomatoes could taste like that! My husband followed that up with one of Chef Perkins' famous soups, an emulsion of cabbage-mustard and brie - simply divine! I ordered the House Salad with pickled zucchini and a delicious lime-cilantro dressing. Our entrees consisted of the Pork Belly for myself and the Beer Batter Salmon for my husband - perfectly cooked salmon and deliciously decadent pork belly! Although we had stuffed ourselves, we tried to save just enough room for dessert - the Carrot Cake for myself, unlike any Carrot Cake I've ever had, wrapped in a chocolate shell and layered with goat cheese frosting - while my husband stuck to his chocolate obsession and went for the Chocolate Tart, another five star dessert.
My husband and I had the good fortune to travel to France recently and dine at a Michelin Star restaurant, L'Axel, in Fontainebleau, and while our 9-course meal there was magical in every way, I would put Franck's just a bit higher in terms of flavor profiles, creativity, presentation, overall atmosphere and service.
Truly, this is the best of Utah - worth every single penny and an experience not to be missed!
This was our fifty-fourth time for 'Tasting Tuesday' at Franck's. Okay, so that's only an estimate but I'll bet it's close. We've been doing it for three years, as often as our schedule permits. Robert Perkins is the head chef at Franck's and his culinary inventions are the primary reason for our loyalty.....but there are plenty of others. An attentive and knowledgeable wait staff (special mention for Wendy, David & Marla) compliments an attractive exterior, a cozy dining area, 'next to the door' parking and one more: Mike, the manager, will make sure you depart with a smile on your face that will last all the way home. This has been our favorite restaurant for over three years. Our recommendation is unequivocal.
I have talked about Franck's to my close friends and finally got them there for my birthday dinner. The food was spectacular just as I had promised them. Our reservation was for 6:00 p.m. and the restaurant filled up quickly. This caused the service to slow way down. In fact, I didn't think we were going to get our dessert. One of my friends commented that the manager visited every table, but our table. I am not sure why. Because of this, I recommend going to Franck's during non busy times (if there is such a thing).
We wanted to try a new place, so went to Franck's with another couple. The noise level was a bit too much for having a relaxing conversation. The food was presented beautifully, and the flavor combinations were very creative. We enjoyed the food, and the atmosphere was nice, so we'll go back, but we'll just expect our conversation to be more invigorated and loud.
Best restaurant in the valley; best tasting menu (Tuesday); best wait staff. For those of you who like Loghaven, you'll like Franck's intimacy, warm interior, and convenient parking. As 'foodies' Franck's is our favorite restaurant and has been for almost four years. Can't recommend this place highly enough.
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!
The food was beautiful and unique, yet WAY overpriced for what we received. I was shocked to be sitting on a bench-seat with other guests, in a boring dining room. There was no live music, no romantic atmosphere, and no choice of food received. For $250, we should have had privacy and entrees larger than finger food.
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!
