Great place. One of our two "small" plates was excellent, drinks were great. Ceviche plate had very little food on it, mostly spicy sprouts and not much taste to the dish. But this was the only concern of the night. Service, atmosphere, drinks, the interior - all deserve an "A" :)

Unfortunately the waitress although pleasant and attentive had no idea on the menu when asked questions . Several meals were cold also . Such a shame as was the first meal out since covid lockdown levels dropped .

My meal was disappointing I had the duck fettuccine the flavour was okay but not much depth but the fettuccine was cut into approx 3 cm pieces! The caprese salad was terrible it was more like a tomato salad with 4 tiny triangles if pizza mozzarella- I have never had a caprese salad before with alf alfa on it before and radish slices!! It should be buffalo or cow mozzarella ball or boccincini. For all the reasons above we won’t be back to dine here for sometime however on a positive note my fellow diners were reasonably happy with their meals. The service from our waitress was good.

The food was remarkable. The steak was cooked perfectly with the sauce from the pan & the perfect amount of bernaise sauce. The ribs were also tender & the slaw & corn bread complimented it perfectly. & as always the grazing board was amazing i love the selections the chef has every time & everything on it is always cooked to perfection. I love how the service is super fast & the food always comes out quickly. Many thanks to the chef & staff. Always amazing every time we come.

The grazing platters were delicious as expected. Thats exactly why I came back to the franklin. Waiter staff were so lovely in helping us, even setting up our birthday cake, bringing it out & singing for us. Awesome staff, sorry if we were annoying in anyway. Definitely coming back for more so happy with everything.
