While the restaurant no longer serves sushi nor ceviche and was out of most fish (we were limited to 2), after initially hearing those limitations, I was somewhat skeptical of how our lunch would play out. HOWEVER, if ended up being terrific! Definitely give it...More

Went to Francis for a business lunch...food was outstanding. Everyone raved about their lunch...I had the Shrimp and spinach rotolo which was amazing; one of my colleagues raved about the gnocchi. Highly recommend this quaint restaurant with nice atmosphere and great food.

The atmosphere of the restaurant could be better, however the food was very good and the service was a highlight of our dinner. They do have a very good wine list and the sommelier was very helpful.

It was busy but not cramped and had excellent attentive service. We had the best cerviche ever and the catch of the day was well priced and delicious. A treat of a restaurant.
