    We had dinner on a very busy Saturday night, quite noisy but we could still easily converse at our table. This is a rare gem in a part of the world that lacks good fine dining options: linens on the tables, soundproofing on the ceiling, good service. The northern Italian cooking was excellent and the wine list adequate. Pricey, but worth it.

    The food is excellent. The chopped salad is wonderful. Our table was divided. Everyone had a different entrée and everyone was very pleased. Gene was our waiter and he was very attentive. The chef came out of the kitchen to visit with the diners. It was a nice personal gesture that was a nice touch.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2007VIP

    The food was good. We had a reservation for 4. The restaurant has 2 sides. One with nice dining ambiance, the other more like a pizzeria. The restaurant was not crowded. We were seated on the pizzeria side. It was more like a sports restaurant. When I inquired about sitting in a booth on the other side, I was told it was reserved. It was never filled. There were also plenty of tables empty on the nice side. We weren't offered those. I'd say, pricey to sit in a pizzeria. We were two couples in our 50's, not a family with young children. Not a good scenario for fine dining.

    We often eat here. Tonight we were four with one newbie and all loved it. One pasta, one veal special, one fish and one veal chop parm and all were excellent. Server very attentive. Hostess staff always top notch. Manager Jerry always there to make sure all is perfect. A must try if in the area.

    We Ioved the ambiance of the restaurant. Mainly because we love Frank & Dean. We definitely will return. The entertainment is a definite plus. Entre's were very good with the exception of the escarole side dish. No one at our table liked it. While waiting at the bar for our friends, I did feel bar staff paid more attention to "regulars" than us. Our table service was well-timed and friendly & our waiter checked on us to see if everything was ok.

    Food here is exceptional. Located in an off shopping center but don't let that fool you. From the time you walk in the front door it is top notch. Veal Parm is the best in the world. Wife loves the Yellowtail Oregenato. Starts are also very enjoyable. Very friendly and attentive service. Manager is always there to make sure this place runs perfeclty.

    We started off at the bar for a drink before dinner. The bartender was very courteous, professional and fast. We ordered the calamari and baked clams for an appetizer, and it is fair to say both appetizers were some of the best we ever tried. We then split a lump crab meat and scallop linguine which was out of this world. The crusty garlic bread served with the dinner is amazing.

    The atmosphere at Frank and Dino's is fabulous. The entertainment is so enjoyable, probably the main reason I go there. The food is good , I would like to see the staff a little more attentive and to be versed in the entire dining experience. The bar area tends to cater to the people who are regulars and sometimes I have brought friends in there only to feel that some people got more attention then others. It should always be a great experience for all the guests.

    This was not my first time there. We were 4 people. 3/4 were served promptly while there was a snafu in the kitchen. They never made my dish. Finally it arrived and i was the last to eat. It was good but nevertheless. The maitre d didnt care nd didnt want to "do" anything for us to compensate our experience. There Re way too many italian restaurants locally. Needless to say we wont be going back and u can be sure we will let our firiends know about our experience

    I have been meaning to go to this restaurant for a while. Wish i didn't last night. The food was ok - nothing to write home about. We started off with baked clams, they were very "oily" and flavorless. Then i ordered snapper oreganata and my husband had the veal chop. Again, my dish was covered in oil and again flavorless. My husband's dish was ok. The wait staff was very unfriendly as well as the host. As we left i tried to say goodbye to the host, he barely looked up at us and pretty much ignored us. I will never go back.

    Everything was fine, but not great.. Could have had the same meal at half the price somewhere else. Service was okay, but not all that friendly. The best part of the meal was the calamari appetizer, it was excellent! Entrees were just average and don't come with a salad so we split a caesar which was very good.

A member of our party has gluten intolerance . That was not an issue for the chef at all. A wonderful, warm, friendly restaurant . Beautiful decor. Fabulous wine list and manager that made our evening an exceptional one. Portions are huge so look forward to taking home or having fun sharing a few fabulous dishes.

    I'm an older guy (widower) who is try to find my Love for the rest of my life. Now I need all the help I can get and Frank & Dino's gives that helping hand. Great Food; both of our dishes were suburb; a small Intimate Atmosphere, Excellent Friendly Service. What more could you ask for? Maybe a few less $? The saying "You get what you pay for." comes to mind. For a couple looking for a Romantic place to dine; to celebrate any occasion, you certainly could not do better then Frank & Dino's.
