I have been to this place three times now, and I am sorry, was not impressed.
First time in I ordered the pasta with cream sauce, mushrooms chicken and asparagus. Little to no chicken or asparagus, and as far as I could tell (I have been a professional cook for over ten years) was nothing more than a can of cream of mushroom soup out of a can.
Second visit, I asked for an alfredo sauce on pasta, it came out with red sauce. Sent it back to be corrected. It came back out with NO sauce. Finally it was brought back out with plain reduced cream, no flavors whatsoever.
Decent atmosphere for people that know nothing about culinary talent and need a night out from watching reality tv shows. Nothing more.
I have been coming to Frescos for many many years, with family and friends. The staff is very friendly and I look forward to the same quality of food and service every visit. I love the Asiago Quesadilla...it is a meal by itself. The crab dumplings are very good, and if it was real crab, they would be at least twice the price, so I am not quite sure why there are people complaining. This is a simple appetizer, not a gourmet seafood dish. The mushroom ravioli is fantastic, and be sure to leave room for dessert!! Enjoyable experience every time!!
Great restuarant... Prices are fair, portions just right. The service was quick and the food was very tasty. Did not feel like I was being rushed through my meal, had time to sit back and enjoy our wine and chat.
Would highly recommend Fresco's for a night out with or without the family.
This is one of the few places that has sun on the patio in the evenings. One of the reasons why we visited on this particular day. Calamari was not edible. Overcooked, chewy and tasteless. Even the accompanying sauces were flavourless. Pizza was good although the chicken was very dry. Steak Sandwich with fries was ok. Overall they serve average food but they have a nice patio area.

The parking lot is not good, they should remove the automatic teller drive through for starters and improve the entry from Fourth Avenue. The restaurant decor is uniquely Mediterranean. The music is upbeat, and the statuary and "paintings" bring to mind Europe. I am not certain how the taxidermy fish fit in. The restaurant could do with a little more general lighting however and also some housekeeping. Service was prompt and drinks were brought out quickly. The special of the day should be more prominently displayed at the entry. Upon questioning, our server discussed the specials and the myraid of options included quickly with no prices until asked. I quite enjoyed the house salad here. It is very tasty. When the food arrived we were a little surprised at how large the portions are. They really do not need to be as we all had leftovers. I enjoyed my dish, but I don't think I would re-order it on another visit. It's a bit too cheesy for me, thick and not very spicy - just personal taste. There used to be a spicy peanut dish that is perhaps served at noon? It should be included at supper also. Coffee was slightly strong. The various servers who attended the table did keep the table service overall at a very acceptable level.
Drinks came quite quickly, salads as well. The salad was one of the best I might have ever had, it was HUGE! When my crab cakes came they were severely burnt on the outside and quite cold on the inside. When i inquired, the waitress immediately took them back and brought a new dish out in under two minutes. When they came back and i cut them open, I realized it was imitation crab (not listed on the menu). Disappointing. Pasta was great, little to no oil used with a decent number of scallops and small pieces of bacon.

Been regulars since Fresco's opened. Busy lunch but food arrived quickly. Pizza was very, very good but not very hot, lettuce in the salad has not been very good for awhile now, not sure why, it's pale, yellow, brown edges not very fresh looking. It used to be my favorite salad. Chicken was lost in oversized dry roll, very tiny dry piece of chicken, totally tasteless. Fries were hot and good. We'll be back, just maybe not for lunch, dinner seems to be of better quality.
The waitress was absolutely horrible. When I questioned why the menu does not state that the "crab" in the dumplings is in fact imitation crab, she became angry with me. She even went so far to say "for that price, you should know it's not real." Our actual entrees were fine, however, the dessert coffees that we ordered were not. I am quite certain that I know what a monte cristo coffee should taste like, and what I was served was not even close. When I mentioned this to the waitress she said, "well i watched her make it- it's fine." The food here was just okay, but the service was HORRIBLE!!!

I have been to Frescoâ€™s over 10 times and have never been dissatisfied. The food was delicious and we had a ton of leftovers to bring home. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a perfect dinner out.
This venue has GREAT food and a very good selection of food. The service is friendly for the most part, but on this particular day, the server made 2 mistakes, but made up for it by not including the dessert on our bill, but we were celebrating a birthday! Overall, GREAT place. I would completely reccomend it to anyone who is thinking about going!

This is one of those places you will go back to over and over. The food is very good and always well served. You can rely on a quality meal at a fair price and the menu has something for everyone if you have a large group. Personally, I usually end up only ordering 2 or 3 appetizers. They are so darn good I can't get past them to the rest of the menu! Try the grilled octopus!
