Frankies has great sound and insures that the audience is respectful in a way that consistently provides a wonderful jazz experience. And when it happens to be Monte Alexander and two other fantastic musicians, it is outstanding.

We were there for New Year’s Eve. Thought for sure the price included a glass of champagne at midnight.
Found it to be expensive ( I live downtown so I get pricing). The chicken was dry. My favourite dish was the creme Brûlée and I don’t have a sweet tooth.

Service was great. A vibrant blonde French girl served us and was a pleasure to be around.

We went to Frankies Jazz Club for New Years Eve 2017/18, whilst visiting Vancouver from the UK. The evening was thoroughly enjoyable - the 3 course menu very tasty and good value at $89 a head and the live music from Mazacote was excellent.

The food, service and ambience were terrific. Erica, our server was really on top of her game. Very courteous and professional. The band, "Lesismore" were fantastic. We were a party of 10, so good friends, great food and service and wonderful entertainment made the evening very pleasant. We will definitely return.

My friends and I were in Vancouver for the week, and Frankie's Jazz Club was certainly a delightful highlight. The ambiance was warm, classic, and romantic. Sipping on handcrafted cocktails while listening to the live jazz music was truly an unforgettable experience. It inspired us to pursue more exploration.

As usual we are at Frankie’s for the great jazz and as usual we were not disappointed. The Jill Townsend Big Band is one of our favourite groups and we try not to miss the opportunity to be in the audience. Tonight we shared a house side salad which was pretty big and the dressing used is lovely. Next we shared the sirloin burger and fries. Filling and good.

I love the jazz here although this particular night I wasn't wild about the singer. Yes he was good & GR8 to hear seasonal jazz songs, but the whole scenario didn't quite cut it for me. The food was FAB & love the atmosphere. The music was too loud, so we asked to have it turned down & it was, so then it was perfect. All in all, a very enjoyable evening!

Parm and I went to see the Siobhan Walsh group. Great show, lots of energy. Service was a bit slow, but to be expected as it was a busy night. Server was excellent and was able to work around the noise level to take our order. A great night all around and we will definitely be back!

My friends and I attended in order to hear the band, Saul Berson Quartet. The fact that the food and drinks were amazing was a bonus. But what we really were impressed with was the servers, ours in particular, Tim. He never stopped moving, and had our water filled constantly. He was remarkable and made the evening perfect.

I was very impressed to receive a phone call to confirm reservation and what type of seating I preferred. Bonus to hear Champian Fulton and outstanding musicians! Thanks for making our first visit so special. Marianne Farmer

PS Late Dec. I'm getting a knee replacement, so I wanted to check out Frankie's before Jan. when we're coming to see/hear Monty Alexander Jan. 13. Frankie's is very accessible to those with physical challenges.

Great Jazz place. Great setting. When reserving you get admission, not a pick of your place. Come early to buy food, drinks and spend money does not get a better seat than someone who shows up at the last moment and sip one drink. Its not right for the paying customer nor Frankies brand. If Frankies gave better seats to those that come early they would make more money and tips....and have a happy customer.

We don't go out often but when we do, it's so nice to know that there is a venue like Frankie's. We feel relaxed and comfortable there. Food is good and the staff are efficient and friendly. We look forward to visiting again on Dec. 22nd for the 3 Queens. We've seen them many times and they always make the Christmas holidays feel complete. They're wonderful! Thank you.

Frankie's is great, but the availability for parking is not good. Is there somewhere cheaper than $20 across the street? Or, could you negotiate a better deal with the company who owns the parking lot. We, as your customers are being exploited.
