I have no idea what the two previous reviewers are talking about, but the Frescos we went to last night was fabulous! Food SERVICE (Adrianna) was top notch first class and the host was great giving us a run down of The Masters that went into sudden death while we were seated. Overall, great experience, good food and view to die for! Highly recommend!
My wife and I decided to have a nice dinner out. We chose Frescos because their website looked classy and upscale. We also liked the menu selections. We called to make reservations and were told that they didn't have anything available between 6pm and 8pm. In light of this, we decided to make a reservation for 5:30pm even though we really didn't want to go that early. Upon arriving we noticed there were very few cars in the parking lot and a smattering of patrons inside. As we were shown to our table, we noticed shorts and t-shirts rather than the business casual we expected. We also noticed around 6pm, that there were very few occupied tables. We suspect that they don't take reservations between 6pm and 8pm to ensure they have tables for walk-ins. It would have been nice for someone to mention that when we called. The waitress was very nice and quickly greeted us and took our drink orders. My wife ordered a bowl of cream of crab soup and it was very good. For our entrees, I ordered the rockfish special and my wife ordered the chicken sorrentino (chicken breast covered with marinara sauce and asiago cheese). Upon receiving our dinner entrees, we noticed neither entree was hot and both were lukewarm at best. We decided to go ahead and try them anyway...big mistake. After two bites, my wife pushed her plate away because she couldn't stomach eating another bite. The chicken tasted as though it had just been rewarmed in the microwave not to mention the fact that rather than asiago cheese (which is a very sharp cheese that my wife loves) there was two large slices of provolone cheese slapped on top. Mine was almost cold, but the flavor was ok, so I ate what I could. We decided we were not willing to pay for my wife's entree and talked to the waitress about the problems with it. The waitress was very apologetic and said she would remove my wife's meal from the bill without us having to ask. Overall, the food was pretty gross especially considering that they advertise their establishment as an upscale restaurant. I am giving it one star only because the waitress was nice and the crab bisque was good.
Do not waste your time eating at Frescos. I have never in my life walked out of a restaurant, but within 30 minutes of arrival at this awful, poor excuse for fine dining, I got up and left. From the moment I stepped in the door, the experience was nothing short of atrocious. My friends and I had reservations for 8:15 on a Saturday night. We chose the restaurant because I am celiac (cannot eat gluten) and Frescos advertised on their marquee that they served gluten free pasta. I called 2 hours before it opened to inquire about menu options and discern what I could eat. I spoke to a very nice girl who assured me that most pasta dishes could be made gluten free and that if I had questions my server would be more than happy to help. This girl obviously did not meet Bob. I have never met a worse waiter than Bob. Not only did it take 15 minutes to get water and another 5 minutes to get his attention and place a drink order, Bob was straight-up rude. I attempted to politely inform him of my dietary restrictions, but Bob never, NEVER took his lecherous eyes off my friend’s chest; Bob must have taken his clues for the maitre ’d who made spectacle of staring down my friends dress while seating us. As Bob ogled my friend’s breasts, he told me the restaurant was too busy to accommodate me, that all he could offer was pasta in a Bolognese sauce or plain fish. I noted Bob’s distain and offensive “distraction,” so I asked to speak with the chef and his manager. Bob refused let me speak to the chef, said the restaurant was too busy to “go out of the box” to make me a meal then walked away! When 10 minutes later we still did not have drinks and I could not find a manager we left. If you are vacationing in Ocean City, do not be fooled by the marquee, this restaurant has no clue how to prepare gluten free food. And unless you want to be undressed by your waiter eyes, I’d recommend going down the street to one of any number of classier establishments.
Fresco's has been one of my favorites from the time I was introduced to it by a friend a few years ago for its ambiance, service and menu selections. We most recently celebrated our granddaughters 20th birthday and were not disappointed.
