“A bit out of the way but comfortable and nice”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

We both had the mussels...not the best we've ever had, but good. The decor was nice and we enjoyed a quiet early dinner. We walked about 2 miles from the Embassy Suites on N. 7th Street to the restaurant and passed by the baseball stadium on the way.

“Best in Soulard”
Reviewed 1 April 2014

Franco is that hidden gem in Soulard downtown St. Louis. Wonderful drinks and food.
Our group enjoyed all the salads (Caesar salad, scallop salad and trotters salad).
Cassoulet is their most popular dinner option and is great. Two had the special seafood entree and one steak dinner was ordered. A casual fun place where food is really good. They always have a wonderful trout option and always have a foi gras of the night. The drinks here are very good and some are unual.

“Better restaurants to try”
Reviewed 9 February 2014 via mobile

We were not impressed. I have had better pork belly at lesser restaurants. My friend sent his salad with crab back as the crab was tasteless and ordered French onion soup instead. I ordered a side of brussell sprouts that were described as caramelized, they were not. They were good none the less. My friend had the special - flounder which he said was good. The flourless chocolate cake with pistachio ice cream was wonderful.

“Go here!”
Reviewed 3 December 2013

We read about this restaurant while planning our trip to St. Louis so my fiance made a reservation ahead of time. It was a Thursday night and it was far from busy. We had an amazing meal. I had steak and my fiance had one of the nightly specials. Our server was great and the interior was beautiful. This was one of our best meals we had in St. Louis and I would highly recommend. I would drive or take a taxi there as it is a bit of an isolated area.
