Reviews for Cafe Fresco Center City

We always forget that this restaurant has, perhaps, the best food in Harrisburg! Every meal (chicken red curry, scallops, steak, sea bass) at our table of four was perfectly prepared. Service was good, too. Pricing is on the high end for the area, which may limit frequent dining, but this is a superb restaurant for special occasions.

We were torn with what to order because there were so many good options! We started with the wontons, which were fantastic in addition to the brussel sprouts which were also very good. I highly recommend the scallops with butternut squash risotto and the red curry! Our server, Mercedes was excellent as was Tyler the bartender! Atmosphere was sophisticated and lively.

What happened?? Wow, what difference since changing chefs. An overpriced, barely mediocre experience. Used to love this place, but was actually embarrassed after taking our friends from out of town there this last time. I think our days of enjoying Cafe Fresco are over, bummer. Only two stars because the service was at least decent.
