Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Simply what a resteraunt should be from start to finish. The staff were excellent and very personable, helpful and full of enthusiasm for their job. The food was the best I've had in a very long time. I chose the fish stew which I would...recommend to any fish lover. Upon arrival we were offered a wine and dine deal for £23 this was super value for the quality and quantity of food. The resteraunt, toilets and bars were all exceptionally clean. My only complaint is that this is not closer to me because this would certainly be a regular of ours.More

Regular visitors to Liverpool but our first trip to Bistro Franc but definitely not our last. Excellent value and superb service by Tasha. The food was another level - absolutely brilliant. We had scallops, tuna Nicoise, lemon mushrooms and chicken skewers on the prix fixe...menu and everything was incredible. We’ll be back!More

Lunched here with my wife today. Lovely welcome which developed into very good service during our meal. The food is the equivalent of rustic French bistro fare, with French dishes featuring more predominantly on the menu than 'European'. All our petits plats were simple, but...suitably presented, with good flavours. Boeuf bourguignon was wholesome and rustic; the sea bass filet dish and the whipped goats cheese with chicory salad were both excellent. Hand-cut chips too soggy for my liking; seasonal vegetables were as they come - uninspired, but tasty. Circumstances dictated that we didn't try one of the wines, but there were some to tempt us on the list. We would definitely recommend and hope to return when next in this great city.More
