Don Francesco Restaurant in Vancouver

 

Don Francesco Restaurant

Don Francesco Restaurant in VancouverThe finest in Italian cuisine prepared with a Mediterranean flair and served in a warm and inviting atmosphere.
A walk away from the busiest streets of Vancouver and across from Sutton Place Hotel, Don Francesco Ristorante, with its floor to ceiling windows reveals a dining pleasure.

The restaurant is divided into several areas, welcomed by a full bar at the entrance, and a romantically lit grouping of tables to the left looking over a large heated patio background by Burrard Street.

A small opened kitchen-like bar where chefs prepare cold starters and salads are visually appealing with a confidence in the freshest ingredients. The soothing sight of fresh flowers and greens invite ones' eyes to a slightly more formal dining area to the back of the restaurant.

Don Francesco Restaurant Review

This is my first five star rating ever and I believe it's justified! Had a goodbye dinner with some colleagues at this restaurant and the entire experience was magnificent.

The service was excellent. We had the private guest room near the back of the restaurant and our two servers were extremely attentive, personable, knowledgeable on both food, wine, and various cultures, and generally a great pleasure to deal with. Francesco made it a point to not only drop by to say hello to us, but to all the other tables in the restaurant as well.

The food... delicious. I had the grilled calamari salad, halibut cheek fillets, and pear sorbet, while the others tried the various pastas and seafood dishes on the menu. Everything we had was stellar!

The ambiance is more towards the romantic side, as the house lights are quite dim and there are ample candles throughout the restaurant.

The musicians were not in on this night, so we didn't get a chance to hear Francesco sing - which I hear is great, as he is an opera singer.

The pricing is on the high-side, but putting it in context (fine dining establishment) - the quality, service, and ambiance we received - the value is there. I definitely recommend this restaurant when you feel like treating yourself and your partner to a special evening on a special occasion!
