Cheerful, prompt service at our table . The server even remembered I liked butter with my focaccia bread! Nice touch!
Always a calm oasis for pleasant, tasty dining. We arrived about 10minutes before happy hour ended & managed to get our food & drink orders in.

Food was good, after a little mishap with a server and having to move tables we felt very rushed. Everything came so fast, didn't quite finish our appies and then mains were in. Food was hot and fresh, just wished we had more time to digest and have a more relaxed dining experience. They did compensate us with our dessert so that was nice.

A great place with good value food. We enjoyed the veal and the lamb shank. Both were large portions that we could hardly finish. We would definitely return to this restaurant when we are in the area agiain.

Before I get into the food a word about service. The manager David managed to squeeze me in for my birthday dinner despite a big concert. The table server (apologies for not having the name) was exceptional. He really understands service that is responsive and not intrusive. He knew exactly when to appear, serve, clear and take requests. He made an excellent wine recommendation. Delightful to see such superb service standards.

The Food. I eat at a lot of restaurants. Strangely this was my first time at Frankie's and now I regret the omission. I ordered a side caesar salad to start with bread. The caesar salad is the best I have had - from the freshly made croutons, soft on the inside and lightly crunchy, served with fresh beautifully textured focacci. The on to my shrimp scampi tagliatelle. My dinner guest had the chicken linguine and he polished it off despite his typically small appetite. He also polished off his caesar salad and the rest of the bread. My shrimp were plentiful, fresh and cooked to perfection and the cream sauce delicate yet flavourful. Then the chocolate torte was brought to our table as my birthday surprise. And what a surprise, light yet rich, full chocolate flavor yet not too dense and served with both vanilla ice cream and whipped cream. We struggled given how well we have enjoyed our starters and mains yet managed to eat most of the dessert as well. The ambience was for a time a bit noisy from another group and then quieter and relaxing.

We all enjoyed our meals very much. We started with the meatball appetizer, and that determined the entree for one of us: spaghetti and meatballs; I had the steak/beet salad, and the other member of our party had the special. We all ate everything on our plate!!! It was delicious. The service was attentive.

Frankie's is a solid choice for in-house made Italian food. The service was outstanding. The wine list is mostly solid. The fresh bread to start is warm, soft and salty - excellent. The food is good to very good. The ambiance is, well, ok. It's time to refresh the interior and make it a bit cozier. I'd come back (this was my 2nd time).

My sisters and I visited Vancouver for a girls weekend. After a bit of searching for a nearby restaurant we came upon Frankie’s and were so glad we did. The food was amazing! Peter our server was friendly and very knowledgeable about the menu and wine list. Would definitely recommend for anyone who loves great Italian food!

Restaurant was busy. Crowd noise echos in Restaurant.
Service staff is attentive and usually quick.
All food ordered was tasty and enjoyable.
When the band in Frankies jazz club next door is playing and the canned music is on, the "noise" created is unpleasant.

You must eat at Frankie's - the pastas are very good and the meatballs are very tasty.
The calamari is very tender and seasoned well. I have eaten at Frankie's for 10 years now a couple of times a year and always very good food and service. Eat there you will not be disappointed.

We had great service from the start with the hostesses (being patient with us sorting out getting vaccine passports ready) to an attentive server, and a quick delivery of our meals. It was our first time at Frankie’s and we went with a group of teen girls and everyone left happy with the experience.

The Friend Calamari was really really good.
The Entre got a 6.5 / 10 - Casarecce Boscaiola

I ususally rate the food higher and my colleague had the same entre dish and gave it a 7.5

I thought it was a little rich and the presentation in a bowl was "kinda" slopped in and when the food expo carried it to the table the bowl's pasta contents kinds look like it was up the sides -- and it needed some green heb garnish -- but now I am getting picky.

Pleasantly surprised.
We tend to frequent our top favourites, including another high end for Italian but the food and service stood up very well, and for easier budget.

Definitely going back and hoping to include in our regular rotation:)

My husband and I were staying at the Georgian Court Hotel where Frankie's Italian Kitchen & Bar was located. We decided to have dinner there on our last night in Vancouver as we had a long day planned and didn't want travel too far for dinner. It was perfect. I was seated first, waiting on my husband to return from dropping off our rental. The host was wonderful, didn't make me feel like it was a problem that my husband was late. Our waiter was so nice. He made conversation with me until my husband arrived. I wish I remembered his name. He really made me feel comfortable and continued to keep conversation with us after my husband arrived. The food was delicious. I had the Chicken Linguini but substituted the chicken for Shrimp and my husband had the Lasagna. The food was excellent. Well made and so satisfying. I would definitely recommend eating at Frankie's. I would go there again.
