I came in with my boyfriend for his birthday. We had a wonderful server who was able to customize my meal based on my dietary needs. He also provided a complimentary chocolate torte with a birthday candle to sweeten the moment. :)

Lovely interior, great service and delicious food! 10/10

Great service and great taste for a reasonable price.

We started with arancini and an antipasto platter, and foccacia bread. They were really good. Then we had fresh pastas (shrimp scampi tagliatelle and casarecce boscaiola). The flavours were great and the pasta cooked al dente. The tiramisu and complimentary cake for my hubby (birthday) were pretty and delicious!

Our server, Daryl, was attentive, funny, and generous with his knowledge of the Kitchen's menu.

The chicken breast was not tender.
Watch out when making the reservation if you want it for the Jazz club or the Restaurant

Our waiter Jason was amazing so professional but personal. The music wasn’t Italian flare very annoying. The food is not authentic Italian but ok. The ambiance is not romantic and intimate which we thought it would be from the photo on line.

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.

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!

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!

Thank you,
Cate

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!

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 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.

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

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!

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.
