The Lobster bisque was good.... but the mussels were bland and the wings were basic and overpriced definitely had bad service. I could have went to omaddys and had way better food, better service and a cheaper bill.
Response from the owner - a week ago
This is very disappointing to hear, Dino. While I'm glad you enjoyed the lobster bisque, everything else you ordered should have been just as excellent. And to top it all off, I know our team can do a much better job in giving you the service each of our guests deserve. I hope you'll come back and let us give you a better impression. Take care! - Allie L.

very nice views (but not facing sunset), and good service. girlfriend's corvina was great as was the lobster bisque. my flatbread pizza was really terrible - i've made much better in toaster oven. patrons standing near outdoor bar can get damn noisy when you're sitting at a table nearby.
Response from the owner - 2 months ago
I'm so bummed to hear that your flat-bread pizza wasn't perfect, David. A few weeks have passed since you left this, but I know we can make you a delicious pizza if you come back by. With that being said, I'm thrilled that your girlfriend enjoyed her meal! There's nothing quite like lobster bisque and views of the water. huh? I hope we'll see you both again soon! - Allie L.

Food was tasty, but size of menu could have been larger for the high price. Great view and nice staff. Especially the front desk guy on Feb. 8th for lunch was amazing. Will come back for sure.

Food is overpriced for what you get and tastes so so. Waiter brought us checks while my husband was still eating. Location is nice

This is the only waterfront restaurant in the area. It's always been a fun place but when we were there yesterday the service was awful. We were there an 1 1/2 hrs just to have a couple cocktails and two appetizers. Had to chase down a server to get our check. Not once during the entire 90 min did our server ever come back to check on us once she served our appetizers!! Additionally we were passed of top two other servers from the time we say down til we left.i know Sundays are busy but if Frescos mgmt can't hire and train better staff, I fear they will lose a lot of business. I for one will not go back.

My wife, daughter, and I waited thirty minutes for a waiter/waitress. We asked a waitress passing by of she cold get someone to help us and she ignored us. We asked another waiter where was the restroom and was ignored. The food was decent although they messed up my wife's order. Our waiter was apologetic and gave us a free desert. Overall not a great experience.

I apologize that this was your experience with us, Andre. I'll be sure to have a word with the team about your visit -- our guests should always be well taken care of when they dine with us. I hope you'll give us another chance to give you a better impression. - Allie L.
