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 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

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.

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.

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.

It started real strong and the server had great recommendations. My wife had the dine out menu while I ordered from the regular menu. Service was fast and consistent until our server got a big table. We waited so long for dishes to get taken away and I had to go to the front to ask for our bill since we hadn’t seen our server for over 20 minutes... we just wished that our first time there would have been a better over all experience. Food was delicious and really enjoyed their meatball and tiramisu.

They were slammed with a pre game crowd. WE were a table of 8, and the service was very slow. Maybe not too experienced. We had been there for more than 1/2 hour before the wine was served, and it was not what was ordered. 55 minutes until bread was at the table. As the restaurant cleared, service was better, and the food was excellent. I would go again.

Great dinner. Some of our group of 8 tried the Dine Out menu. Excellent quality and value. Those that ordered off the regular were also very happy with their meals. Service was friendly and just right for a group that mostly wanted to talk.

I recommend Frankie's to everyone going to Vanc. I have never had a bad experience. The waiters and waitresses are so well versed in how dishes are put together, you'd think they were the chefs! If you are wondering what to order, just ask for the house recommendation.
Well done Frankie's!

I had never heard of this restaurant but it was close to the QE Theatre. Lasagna was fantastic as was the foccacia bread. We could actually hear each other talking which was a welcome bonus. I definitely recommend this restaurant.
