Carlos made us a table side Cesar salad right at the bar where we were seated. It was fabulous. Thank you Carlos! The margaritas were also fabulous and we are grateful to our bartender, though we don't recall his name.

A very nice bar and place to sit. We also ordered the calamari but did not like it. Dried out. We'd return for the salad and margaritas though!

I came here for a late dinner before a night at Foxwoods (excellent proximity) and was both greeted with a smile and pleasantly surprised at the beauty of this establishment. The sophisticated / rustic theme is very welcoming and beautiful on the eyes. Gio, the bartender, was attentive and possessed a very warm demeanor. My drink was made perfect and they have an amazing bar selection to satisfy anyone. My server, Liza, was so energetic and happy and provided the utmost excellent service. Liza gave great recommendations and is very knowledgeable; she seems to do a little of everything at the restaurant. She is a hard worker who takes so much pride in her work and always stays late to ensure that the restaurant stands up to its high expectations. I was pleasantly surprised to see the vast selection of organic and gluten free meals; it's refreshing to see a place value such quality and cater to those who lead a healthy life. I ordered the caprese salad, which was crisp and fresh and delectable. I also had a custom gluten-free, veggie pizza with mozzarella and words cannot describe how delectable it truly was. I loved being able too see the man making my pizza from my table and even witness the dough being flung into the air so authentically. This was a truly enjoyable experience and I am eager to come back with warmer weather so that I may experience the beautiful patio they have out back. Additionally, my mother is a fine dining server of over 20 years experience and this is her FAVORITE Italian restaurant, which says wonders about this place. Don't miss out.

Girls weekend away We like to try out local places. This place was amazing! We had a hard time deciding, we wanted everything! Breakfast sandwiches were on buttery, flakey croissants with the freshest ingredients. Almond croissant was better than words can describe. We got cookies to take with us, peanut butter cookie was recommended and it didn't disappoint. Everyone who worked there was so helpful and friendly, especially Alana who was so patient with us having a hard time making choices and steered us to that peanut butter cookie.

We dined at Franks as we like the owner the atmosphere but more important the Food. The pistachio fried Goat cheese is to die for and the Scallop dishes were outstanding. We own a Lodging place in the Mystic area and try as many restaurants in order to feel comfortable in our recommendations to our guests and I must say to you the reader as well as any guests who stay with us, Franks is a sure and must try and will not disappoint the most savvy diner. The menu has it all and if your lucky and the Boss is there you’ll be greeted and asked how’d you enjoyed your meal. A proud owner and a culinary leader in our area. Thanks again for another delectable meal.

Reviewed By dillee141 - Charlestown, Rhode Island

Was here for lunch, tried a special that was a salad with pumpkin and goat cheese near Halloween, it was so good I returned alone the following week for another equally good salad. Had a cupcake from bakery as well on one visit, and it too was delicious. I have dinned here in their old location and had some of their wonderful grilled cheese sandwiches, new location is much larger, hence more comfortable place to dine, but seems like it is open shorter hours.
