We've walked past Franco's many times over the years and always liked the look of it. We booked a table for 2 for lunch. I hadn't realised it had a downstairs and we were taken to a table there, but I declined due to my difficulty with stairs. I hadn't warned them about this when booking, but they managed to find us a street level table on a very busy day. Much appreciated. Nice food, well served (lobster linguine and pan fried monkfish both excellent). Bit pricey for what it is would be my main negative comment. £140 for two people, two course lunch plus coffee with just a single glass of indifferent Gavi and water.

Food is a good taste of Italy
but unfortunately for us the restaurant was empty so all the waiter were looking at us all the dinner and 1 seconde after we finish our plate they quickly make the table empty..
Weird atmosphere for a restaurant like this
Experience bill at the end

Late booking and Xmas so main restaurant was full, so can’t really complain about being seated in the outer restaurant opposite the bar. Young an inexperienced waiter who managed so mess up our drinks order twice, no big deal, hopefully the extended team will bring him on. Overall, Francos remains one of our favourite restaurant in Mayfair, fabulous location on Jermyn St.

We encouraged friends to join us for a pre -Christmas lunch at Franco`s ( my favourite for more than 40 years) and we had an excellent meal with great service. Outside Jermyn Street looked very festive. For me Franco`s is an institution in London. Other restaurants come and go but Franco`s has that staying power. Frank Sinatra loved it so it must be good.

Great spot for a business lunch. Had the starter Burrata and pumpkin dish and will be back just for that alone. Understated elegance with the food and service to match.

I arrived and the restaurant was very busy. I didn’t like our table and so asked to be moved. It wasn’t easy for the staff but they bent over backwards to accommodate our request. The new table was perfect and the evening went really well for us and our two kids. The food was simple but excellent. Thanks to Franco’s For making it a great night.

I was treating my son for achieving his DofE gold and we sat downstairs where it was quieter. Service was efficient and friendly. The food really was outstanding. I had a crab starter and my son had scallops. For main I had monkfish and my son tried venison for the first time. We both loved our food and the portions were so generous that we had no room for dessert. Will be going again just for dessert.

If you're looking for genuine Italian food in a relaxed and yet busy restuarant in the West End look no further. Franco's is as good as it gets. Jason the Maitre D' is a star.

I have visited and dined at Franco's on many occasions it has to be one of my favorite restaurants in London and certainly the one I use the most. From the moment that you arrive at reception you know that the occasion will be good from start to finish. Franco's is uniquely suitable for all occasions.

Everything was of a high standard apart from the seating arrangements.Our table was originally destined for downstairs which was quiet and a bit lacking in atmosphere.When I asked for a change we wer re seated close to the entrance and the reception desk and made to sheer two tables.In future I would only book with the restaurant direct so that I could select a table in the main salon
