Great place if you love jazz music. One of the few places where you can actually enjoy the New York style jazz club atmosphere. Great service! Great music!

I particularly enjoyed my experience there this past Sunday. The intimate setting made me feel like I was transported to a jazz club in another city for some reason.
The food was good, though the server did make a mistake on one of the appetizers which was not good, as I’m vegetarian and it was a seafood item that came.
Other than that, I would definitely return for more lovely music with a great ambiance!

A wonderfully sophisticated venue for dining and listening to jazz.
We had an excellent meal with terrific service from an old-school server. We also appreciated that talking is discouraged while the musicians are playing. It was like going back to a bygone era - in a good way!

Terrific band, good food efficient service. A lovely evening. Being plant based and having issues with dairy, it would have been nice to have more choices on the menu. However our server was helpful and made it work!

Nice place, good service, good band on the night we were there. Food I thought was priced on the high side but only average quality. I'd still go again for the right band.

The venue is alright, but nothing special. A small corner of the dual restaurant/bar has been gussied up with some stage lights and a curtain. The vibe didn't quite hit home for me — the club felt pretentious instead of formal, dingy instead of cozy. The food is, of course, on the expensive side. Service was great, but I think the servers struggle to be heard when the performers are playing. Different strokes for different folks, but I don't think I'll be going back.

Lovely place for some good food and great jazz. It is a relatively small venue so don't expect to have quiet conversation while live music is featured but it's one of Vancouver's few places to be able to enjoy good food in a great atmosphere while listening to some great jazz.

Wasn’t a fan of having to be so quiet during the performance- it. It creates tension around us when someone talked at another table. Also the lead performer was crude in his speech- it didn’t compliment the dignity of the restaurant

As always, the ambience was inviting, the service was great, the food and wine were good and the jazz was fantastic. We've been coming to Frankie's Jazz Club since Cory Weeds closed the Jazz Cellar years ago and we have yet to be disappointed with the venue or the music. Looking forward to our next night out at Frankies.

The music at the back of the room was a bit too loud due to a high level coming from the speaker right by our heads. Music was great but we expected it to be a bit quieter since we were at the back of the room, far from the stage.

Great service from our server! (I didn’t catch her name but we were on the raised platform first table on the right) She was very polite and cheerful and helped us with offering lots of diary-free options.
The dairy-free risotto and Lamb Shank were very well made and tasty!
And of course Z’Appostrophe was amazing as usual. Good vibes and a wonderful evening.

It’s great to hear good music,Vancouver is not known for this. I lived in the United States and music was everything there. Yes there is junk also, but overall you can hear everything. Come on Vancouverites let’s bring in the music....love ya Frankie’s.

It was such a privilege to hear the band Zappostrophe...fabulous musicians working with complex sounds and an extraordinary range of experiences, improv and brilliance both from Zappa and from each one of the musicians.

I think Steve Kozak blues band was great but too big a sound for the venue as we had to sit @ the back as found it too loud @ the front. Also, think as they're a danceable band, you want to move & there's no dancing, which there was. :(

Fantastic Jazz! We were visiting Vancouver from the UK and booked a table for dinner and Jazz at Frankie's for my birthday. The food was excellent, as was the service...and the music was incredible. We saw the David Blake Quartet and they were so very, very good - David, together with Brad Turner on piano, Conrad Good on double bass and Joe Poole on drums - absolutely phenomenal!!!
