Went to experience Vancouver Dine Out and it was very good. Not over-the-top 5 star amazing, but enjoyable.

The menu is typical Italian-American, not traditional Italian. Food is very tasty and quite heavy, with gigantic portions. Everything was pretty good, the tiramisu was really outstanding. Very nice atmosphere, the place was not too crowded even if it was a Saturday night. Excellent service.

Went here for breakfast and we both got the mushroom eggs Benedict. It was absolutely amazing and the hash browns were to die for. Was surprised to see how empty it was on a weekend for brunch , especially after tasting how good the food was. Would come again

They were playing music that definitely wasn’t jazz or good haha, so don’t go if you like jazz an it’s not a performance night.

Food was decent! Small portions but I’ve had much worse.

Excellent, as usual our dinner was outstanding. Service was very personal and top notch. Good knowledge of their wines and recommend a very nice bottle of Pinot. Restaurant was very quiet just us and two other small groups. Very safe and responsible assuring compliance to Covid guidelines.

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.

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
