Good Food and Fair Prices – Wife and I were married 38 years ago in Portland and on many occasions we find our selves back in Portland on our anniversary in April. One of the first places we go to eat is at FX. Over the years we have enjoyed breakfasts and dinners and never had a bad meal. I guess that's why we keep coming back. Prices are in line and the service has been great. We often recommend this place to our friends who may be visiting Portland. We'll be there this April and looking forward to the Steak and Lobster again.
Consistantly great food! – FX is one of our favorite neighborhood restaurants.
East county has a few consistant spots & this is one. Their chicken tortilla soup is the best!
A big hot German pancake is always wonderful for breakfast. They have very good coffee, too.
Any meal is a good choice. We've tried just almost everything at least once & rarely are unhappy.
Give this place try.
Everyones goal is to be 5 pounds lighter right? – Well, I would not suggest going to Francis Xaviers then. Not only are the hostesses rude and unsightly, but the food is cooked in massive amounts of grease and lard. For the price, the food should be more tender and supple, and quite possibly not so COLD. I have to pay 15 dollars for a 5 oz steak that wastes at least 500 pcs of my caloric intake for the day, and thats just ONE meal, I am disgusted. Then if you get desert that is another 500 calories, and that is 75% of a persons daily caloric intake. I went to the ladies room and I heard the noise of someone relieving their last food intake in the stall next to me. That was the last straw, it turned out to be one of the hostesses, AND she didn't even wash her hands. Lastly, this restaurant is in a weirdly placed area...It seems nice but all the characters surronding it are not of appropiate means. How does a restaurant propose to make any profit if no one around it can afford the price? All in all, I had a terrible experience and I would not suggest that anyone go here if they are looking for a. good food b. healthy food c. do not want to be come obese food d. be surronded by hoodlums who snort lines of coek and who up chuck in bathrooms. Ew.
Great Service, Best kept secret – I love Francis Xaviers!
The service is fast, no waiting for a seat longer than a couple minutes. Beverages brought quickly, and food is delivered just as fact.
The best part is the portions for the price you pay. Everything is reasonably price in a seemingly fancy environment. Almost all meals can be split with another person, as the dinners come with soup or salad and potato.
Since it's LOCALLY owned, it has a cozy feel, the food is fresh prepared (not corporate style frozen foods), everything seems to have a lot of care put into it.
Since its connected by a hotel it's hard to spot, but it's hidden on San Raphael. It's definitely a best kept secret.
A little spendy. – Food is great except for the link sausage, it tasted like a sausage- hot dog combination of some sort. We were a party of 5 and 3 of the plates our meals were served on were chipped .... not just small chips but a chunk out of the edge of the plate and one of the others was cracked and chipped. I believe that this is a breeding ground for bacteria. They need to pitch the damaged dinnerware and replace it. I can't believe an otherwise clean and well decorated establishment serves there meals on such tacky plates.
Great Food...Great Experience! :) – Better than we expected. It's a restaurant that is connected to a hotel, but it was awesome. We went for dinner...and had some of the mom and pop meals...potroast and pan fried chicken. The house salads were awesome - topped with shredded carrots, sliced radishes, cherry tomatoes, and red onions... Yum! The dressings were a great addition. And the rolls were the best I've ever eaten...better than mom's home cooking. :)
AWESOME! – I am sooooo glad I found FX, it's awesome! Had their cheap steak and lobster and it was WAYYYYY better than Red Lobster and Joe's all for 17.95. Their Breakfasts are good too and the place is super high-endis and clean!
We have even walked right in during Sunday brunch and got right in, it's a huge place!
FX Rocks! – We came here for the first time Valentines Day of last year, WOW were we IMPRESSED! The food, service and atmosphere is so above average. We have been for breakfast, lunch and dinner...all amazing. I would definitely say they have my vote as the best servcie of any other restaurant. I also like how the management is involved. It never fails, they are helping clear and set tables, bringing coffee...anything, and doing it with a smile. And when they ask how everthing is, they really want to know! We will continue to be a regular loyal customers and pass the word every chance we get. Everyone at FX should give your self a BIG pat on the back for a job well done! Thank You!
The Best Restaurant in my neighborhood – The atmosphere at the above restaurant is great. Everyone there is so friendly and the manager/owner comes to each table to make sure the food is excellent and the service above reproach. You can have a romantic dinner there but it does not exclude casual dress. I have been there for breakfast, lunch and dinner and take all my friends there and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a reasonable breakfast lunch or dinner and the deserts are out of this world. Their specialty is a peanut-chocolate that melts in your mouth. Not to forget their excellent fresh brewed coffee or wine if one so desires. They also have a bar for those who would like a cocktail
Great Breakfast, good value. – Yes, this is not a fancy or romantic restaurant. However, the restaurant provides great value, food, and service. I recommend trying the scrambled eggs and pancakes. How can they make scrambled eggs this good? I have no idea. But definitely don't leave until you try the pancakes!
