I would absolutely recommend this facility for any type of party or get together (from weddings to reunions, proms, etc...). Francesca and her staff are curteous, professional, and extremely accommodating. Francesca went above and beyond. The food was fantastic and we received many compliments from everyone (even the pickiest eaters of the guests). The presentation was flawless and beautiful! Francesca was also very approachable and organized. She did an amazing job and I will always be thankful! Having her was as good as having a wedding planner. The price was also extremely reasonable for the venue and food. Everything was absolutely perfect! Thank you again to all of the staff at Francesca's banquets and catering. :-)

This venue was awesome. All of the guests loved the room and the food. We encountered a few issues the last couple days before the wedding and I was able to call Francesca at night and discuss it with her and she took it with a grain of salt and told me everything would be perfect - and she was right! The staff was very friendly and extrememly accomodating. My daughter's wedding was perfect and Francesca's helped make it so.

While the staff were clearing tables they put the guests' favors on a table in the lobby so they could grab them on the way out of the reception. Some people didn't know what happened to them and things got a little confusing. My suggestion would be to leave them on the table so that people could know where to find them and take their favor from their seat when they leave. Other than that I everything was AMAZING and FANTASTIC!!!

Francesca's is the ideal location for a wedding reception. It is local and extremely accommodating. I have heard nothing but wonderful things from my guests about the food and waitstaff. I would recommend Francesca's to any bride in the valley.

Francesas was a great place to have our wedding reception. Everyone that attended had very possitive feedback. The food was a buffet but tasted like home cooking, not the normal nasty banquest food. We highly suggest the place for any occasion.

Words cannot explain how perfect our wedding was at Francescas. She was the easiest and most understanding person to work with while planning a wedding. The menu was flexible and my guests are still raving at how delicious the food was, how beautiful the place is, and how friendly her staff were. Everything went as planned and we couldn't be happier about how perfect our day turned out to be. I would and already have recommended Francesca's to our friends and family for future events/weddings. Some of our friends have already booked their wedding there after attending ours in May. There is no competition around that can even compare to here.

Francesca's catered my wedding in 2007, catered my baby shower in 2008 and catered my son's christening in 2009. People still talk about how fabulous the food was at my wedding! They are always so helpful and take care of everything for me. I love calling them and have them make a really cool custom menu. For the Christening they came to our home to cater and brought everything to us. It was amazing.
