Frankie's Italian Kitchen & Bar
We really enjoyed our night at Frankie's. The service was exceptional! Our waiter (a young man from Ireland) paid close attention to us all evening, even wiping up our table after our appetizers. This doesn't happen often in restaurants anymore. And while the food was good, I was expecting (based on all other reviews) for it to be excellent. That being said, overall we had a good experience and would definitely go back.
Went for a second date here and I couldn’t be more happier. The server was very knowledgable and helpful. The environment was very sweet and tasteful. Can definitely see ourselves coming back again. The drinks and food were on point as well . 4/5 overall.
Amazing service! We had dinner in the restaurant (yummy) and then went into the jazz club at the intermission for the second part of the show. Loved it! On Open Table is not clear that you have to have two separate reservations, so better call to make sure. We wanted to go to the jazz club, but our reservation was for the restaurant. The staff was great in helping us have a very nice experience, and enjoy dinner in the restaurant, and then moved us in the club. Highly recommended! Thank you all who made our evening really nice!
We enjoyed a wonderful meal and great service. Highly recommend.
Wonderful service and amazing food. Love Frankie’s!
Very friendly and attentive front of house and our server Jason.
Jason was very knowledgeable and had great recommendations for food and wine.
We opted to sit in the bar area at a comfortable booth. Sadly re; COVID not that busy so ambience was unremarkable but easy to chat. :)
We celebrated a birthday which I mentioned in our reservation and Jason brought a dessert and a lit candle —- quite lovely!
The only reason why there are not 5 stars is due to the feel of the place—-seemed like it could have a spruce up or current makeover but that is being very picky as it was clean and comfortable.
I would go again and would be able to recommend to others easily!! Excellent pricing for what we received!
Great waiter and great food. I’ll definitely go back. So good.
Love the food here. Service was great. It was a Thursday night during Covid so the restaurant was very quiet. We missed the hustle of a normal evening out.
The servers were fantastic. The food delish, as always.
Food were delicious. Service was excellent! Like the Jazz music next door too.
Stayed overnight at the Georgian Court Hotel. Restaurant is on site. Very nice decor. Good food, good service and prices are in line with downtown Vancouver prices.
This was our first visit, definitely not our last. The food and drinks were exactly what we were looking for.
Coming back for sure, and to visit the Jazz club next door
We loved our meal and had great service.
Our experience was FABULOUS from start to finish. Brett was our server; he was attentive and paid close attention to our needs. I have been in the Restaurant industry for 20+ years and I can confidently say that this business deserves a standing ovation. The service was top notch, food was absolutely delicious and our overall experience was delightful! This was our first visit to this establishment and we will be recommending it to all our friends! Hats off to Frankie’s Italian kitchen! Thank you for the excellent dining experience. We will be back!
Thank you for your visit and for your kind review of your experience with us. We appreciate it. See you again soon!
We were celebrating our son’s graduation
Thank you for your visit and for your review! We appreciate it.
Great food - excellent waiter!! Thoughtful and friendly!
Excellent service. Half price wine bottles on Wednesday! Great food. Jazz band was nearby
The veal parm was amazing. The server was really nice.
My pasta was delicious but we were seated right beside the bar and it was soooo loud and there were very drunk people standing right beside our table!
Chicken fettuccine was great seafood pasta was average. Waiter was superb. Portion sizes were ok. Felt rushed. Not by Waiter but by meal. We sat down, ordered drinks then dinner. I was brought my drink and honestly had one sip before my dinner arrived. If your in a hurry this is the place.
Excellent, attentive service; food served quickly and was very tasty. Good wine selections. Recommend highly for pre-theatre dining. Noise level was quite manageable (even with Canuck fans enjoying their evening!). Tables well-separated. Thank=you!
Great food. Romantic ambience.
Would definitely recommend checking it out.
Great location if you’re attending an event at BC Place or Queen Elizabeth. Service was excellent and portions were generous. Food was good but could be pizza and risotto balls could have been more flavoursome.
Great food as always. Veal Parmesan and Gnocchi were delicious. Unfortunately our server was quite disinterested so had to reduce the stars I would usually give.
The place is close to Queen E theatre so we booked dinner before the show. Received a phone call the day before confirming we were going to be there as they were “all booked up”. Arrived and took 5 minutes to be seated. Our waiter seemed frazzled stating they were very busy tonight (they knew they were going to be the day before). Our waiter I think was the manager and was not attentive to the point that another waiter came by to offer ground pepper and fresh Parmesan cheese and then our waiter came by 10 minutes later asking if we want cheese or pepper. Even tho we had told our waiter we had to make a 8 pm show and asked for our bill at 7:25 we were still waiting for the payment machine at 7:50 not cool. But the food was great. Management needs to learn to have the proper amount if staff working on busy nights
Great food and service. Only downside was the noise level
Veal Parma never disappoints! Tastiest Caesar salad with 5 star presentation! Best cheesecake ever!
Very convenient location across from BC Place, make sure you go to the washroom (Georgian Court Hotel next door) to check out the 80/90's photos of celebs!
It was lovely, my date and I had a wonderful evening, the waitress was very friendly as well; she checked up on us frequently and was more than happy to answer any of our questions. Otherwise, everything else was incredible. I would definitely come back again when I have the chance
After a few visits to Frankie's, I've had two very good experiences with service and one average experience. However the food was very good on each of our visits.
It's a hotel restaurant/dining room and so maybe lacked the ambiance but the food and service was ecxcellent was excellent
Our first time here, it was pretty quiet there at 2 pm on a saturday, which was fine with us. Off the top, I would say there was very little ambiance to the place, it was just there. Our server was attentive, but gave us our space as well. The food was really the attraction, everything was good. The portions could have been a bit bigger, but it was almost the right amount of food. The only kinda negative thing was the pricing--there were some dishes i looked at, then the price & it changed my mind for that meal . All in all, we would go there again.
We had a gorgeous valentines dinner with great service.
Service was great. Request to move to a bigger table was accommodated. Food had good flavour but we prefer pasta well done.
Very nice. I enjoyed myself.
The location was good for us as we were coming after the Boat Show at BC Place. However, parking in the nearest public parking was a little unnerving as the ticket machine did not work, but we managed to avoid getting a parking violation. The staff food and jazz music from next door, made for a pleasant visit.
Nice portion for the money. Pizza made in order. Server told me this is a 3 generation recipe. Deco a bit dated but quiet and clean. Family friendly. Jazz bar next door 2 nights a week. Parking is a bit hard.
Great service, our server was clearly busy but still took the time to chat about Vancouver. Food was just wonderful.
Service was excellent. Seating was comfortable and the ambience was nice. Close to BC place for event attendance. I will recommend to others.
All good. Big group of 18
Good food, friendly prompt service, good wine selection, close to Rogers and BC Place. Suggested a dish they could make for us vegetarians that was excellent. Will return.
