Service was superior, food was delectable-seasoned just right, interesting combinations-califlower puree was the smoothest and most delicious I ever had.

Try the cassoulet. Mussels and the lamb shank both a bit bland. Don't miss the apple tarte.

Great food and presentation, beautiful restaurant. Nice selection of wines by the glass. Roasted chicken and the steak entree both excellent. Parking free at spaces 1-15 in lot across street. Definitely return.

From Our Editors

The Soulard building has come a long way since its days as a turn-of-the-century shoe factory. Its newest tenants, however, still pay homage to their space’s industrial origins, keeping the original concrete pillars and exposed brick walls in Franco's dining room. That isn't to say the owners scoff at modernity—they've updated the charmingly rustic environs with sleek, undulating light fixtures. This balance between past and future extends to the cuisine, which has been lauded by St. Louis Magazine as a “minor masterpiece.” Chefs spotlight classic French meats and cheeses and infuse them with Midwestern flourishes such as molasses-bourbon gastrique sauce. Additionally, servers happily recommend wine pairings or the best wine bottles for trapping genies, a feat that earned Franco’s staff the Best Service in a Restaurant award from Riverfront Times.
