Online I reserved a table. This was confirmed by email

When we arrived at restaurant it was closed?!

One hour later I became a mail;
We understand that plans can change unexpectedly. We learned from Frankie's Italian Kitchen & Bar that you weren't seated for your reservation on Monday for 2.

We checked out their menu online before going, once we got there the server had no idea what we wanted because their menu changed and they didn’t update their website. Pricing was also different. Server was new so I can’t blame her but management should update their site. Bartender didn’t know how to make basic cocktails that were in their online drink menu.

The pizza was good. Service was great. Didn’t care for the Chicken Linguini, the sauce tasted like marinara with a dash of cream added. Didn’t taste the pesto.

We did go to Frankies 3 times. The first two was excellent on 21 and 22 september but third time was like they wanted us out in some aspects. No bread delivered prior to meal so asked for it. Took long time to get drinks. So we got drinks food and bread all together. 2 october. Food was ok but not as good as the first two. We did recommend you to other tourists prior to third time. I wouldnt recommend again.

If you want a loud pretentious unauthentic Tuscan eatery with poor service, then this is the place for you. Stay away from the Bolognese > awful.

Food was tasty though they got order wrong.
Service was very slow and you could evidently tell they were understaffed.
Ambiance was nice and loved the vibe yet was a little too noisy.

Service was incredibly slow. Our server said she had “tables on the patio” and that’s why she was ignoring us. Hostess ignored us. We had to initiate our conversation. Told her we had reservations but she apparently didn’t check us off because we got e mail from Open Table saying we didn’t show up. Food was good but I would never go again.

Fantastic night! There was 7 of us and we were given a nice round table which I love, we all had plenty of room. The food came out hot and delicious and everyone really enjoyed their meals. The best part of our night was our server Tim. He was an amazing person, made us laugh was very attentive, such a professional. Would recommend to anyone and will definitely be going back next time we are in Vancouver.

Made reservations through OpenTable and was seated shortly after we arrived.
But it was over 15 minutes before someone asked if we had been to give menus or ask for drink order.
Sees they were understaffed and our table was not assigned a server.
Our meals were very tasty but service needs addressing.

Service was slow. The server pretty was sweet but felt she ignored us a few times. Other table that got after us got served with the bread first and when we asked, she said the new batch was in the oven. The bread came and it was cold, which obviously didn't seem it just came out of the oven. Beer took longer than usual and she said the keg was being changed. It might be true but a couple of excuses in a row when we tried to follow up just seems a bit odd. Food was okay. We would be back if there are no other options.

Great restaurant, fabulous food once again. We had friends coming into Vancouver to go to Rogers Arena. This restaurant offers very tasty food and good location to attend events at BC Place or Rogers Arena... also very centrally located to just wander Vancouver. Our friends enjoyed it, and found that they were quite happy with the prices for a downtown restaurant.

One of our favourite restaurants but unfortunately the Caesar salad we ordered with cheese on the side arrived at the same time as the entrees. One person can’t have cheese but the waitress did make amends by producing a second salad w/o cheese after the entrees hence the 4 stars

Tim was an excellent waiter. He was knowledgeable regarding menu choices and attentive to our needs. The selections on the menu were varied enough that there was something for everyone. Our meals were excellent. The tira misu was sinful and supremely delicious. If we ever get to Vancouver again a return visit will be on our list.

We ordered fried calamari. It was tough to eat. Probably, it was reheated product not freshly made. Next we ordered "catch of the day" fish dish. It was supposed to be fresh tuna. Smelled very fishy. Obviously it was not catch of the day. It was caught few days ago but served as fresh. All in all it was extremely disappointing dinner. Do not recommend this place even to my enemies.
