Had an excellent dinner prior to attending the Dylan Cramer Trio concert at the Jazz club.
Our entrees--marsala chicken and the boscaroil pasta--were perfect choices and paired well with the Gehringer Pinot Gris. A very professional server made for a perfect pre-concert dinner.

Very good food and service. Limited mixed drinks. I ordered 4 they didn’t have before settling on a margarita that I could have done without. We enjoyed hearing the jazz from next door while dining. We hope to be back!

We enjoyed our visit so much the first time we organized a second visit immediately! The staff were efficient and friendly. Our waitress was helpful with questions about the menu and when it came time to fumble our way through the payment process she was ever patient! The atmosphere is nice; candle lit and warm. The bread at the start of the meal set the standards high and the meal continued to meet those expectations.

They didn’t have my reservation and the hostess were rude. We were celebrating our anniversary and they stuck us around a small corner table. The food was good and our waiter Stephen was exceptional.

Staff was very good and made sure we got our food in time to get to our show at Rogers Arena , everyone enjoyed their meal. Our table was ready when we arrived and we were happy with our service and meal.

We were very grateful they were still able to seat us as we were travelling in traffic. After finding parking we were 45 minutes late. The service was quick and efficient. The waiter was a bit sharp when I told him we were going to Bryan Adams. But the food was good and better value than going inside the arena.

We went before a concert and the restaurant was pretty busy. I was excited that they had gluten free pizza available. I had their featured sausage pizza (gf). It came very small, ultra thin and the sausage was flavourless. The toppings were ridiculously sparse. Another diner at our table had the regular version of the sausage pizza and remarked that it was forgettable. My hubby ordered lasagna and he too, was quite disappointed. For an Italian restaurant we expected more of these types of dishes.

Great food, fair prices. A bit loud and the lighting too bright for a relaxing dinner. Server seemed nervous or distracted, taking away from the experience.

Service was very fast, as we had to go to an event. Polenta fries were very bland, lacked seasoning. Server took them away without hesitation. Risotto and gnocchi very tasty. Fresh bread with balsamic and oil was excellent. Will go back to spend longer and enjoy more complex food.

I booked a table through "Open Table" and requested a patio table. Our table on the patio was ready for us when we arrived. It was a cool evening so the staff brought us blankets. There was 4 of us and we were all very satisfied with our meals and the service. I had the lasagna and my husband had the rigatoni and they were delicious. I would definitely recommend this restaurant and will go again.

After calling to advise we'd be a half hour late for reservation (traffic issues coming north from USA) the staff couldn't have been nicer! When I mentioned we were now running a bit late for a concert our meals were expedited without any fuss! Good foodn friendly attentive staff! We'll be back!

We have dined here before. We have not had a bad experience here. And its ideal location for our evening out with Paul Simon made it an overwhelmingly easy decision this time. Highly recommended. And do not miss out on their excellent wine list.

We chose Frankie's for two reasons:
- We'd eaten here before and know the quality of the food - consistently good
- A great location for concerts, hockey and whatever may be happening at BC Place

Always great food and service. The bar next door gets quite noisy when the live music starts - only annoying part of the experience. Not sure why restaurants want to make it hard to have a dinner conversation.

Food is always good but the bar side for dinner is simply not laid out at these costs compared to the better laid out restaurant side. Staff are well hired but seem less well trained.

We had reserved a spot for the wrong day, but the hostess was very nice and tried her best to get us a seat anyways, we were seated in less than 15 mins. Our server was knowledgeable and accommodating, all in all a good experience.

Had reservations prior to a concert we attended at Rogers Arena, great location as only a 5 minute walk. Very very busy as it was an event night so we knew the service would take some time. Ordered some appies and drinks while waiting for the main courses and the time just went by. From start to finish about 1-1/2 hours overall. Would definitely go again
