    Our night out was for an 11 year old birthday party. This restaurant is kid friendly and very good for fussy eaters. We had a great time and would book again. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012

    Everything was absolutely perfect about the restaurant from the food to the service & even the price was incredible. Our server Reginald was also extremely friendly and courteous... I would definitely go over there again not only with my family but, I'd also take as many friends as I possibly could.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 10/19/2012
    So many choices for pasta! It was great. However, this time I went they didn't have any real gelato, or as many choices as last time. It also tended to get really noisy later, but that's only because more people arrived and let their kids scream and run around. Other than that, it was a great place!!

    The buffet is a great value as there is s lot of variety for dinner. However some food items are really average but there are a few gems (pizza, calamari, beef ribs, ravioli, meatballs, apple crumble).

    All the food was good but not great...I couldnt tell you one dish where I was like 'oh i need go back for more!' I would've assumed you'd have a lot more dishes too. There wasnt any cooked shrimp, that surprised me, that seems like a must for a seafood section. Also you're meat was pretty fatty. But most was good and obviously it's worth it for the price.

    I had not been to Frankie's in a few yeears and was very disappointed. I had seafood soup that only had fish in it, no seafood. Also it had some unusual tasting spice it. Awful. Every thing I tasted was not very good and overcooked. Chicken cacciatore was in a rose sauce- yuck. Every pasta I tasted was very so so. The chicken parmesan and eggplant tasted like rubber. Desserts at an Italian restaurant should be canoli's and gelato not cupcakes and rubbery Napolean's and soggy mini eclairs. The only thing I enjoyed was the Caesar salad. And the waitress was pleasant. Never again. I think u need some Italin cooks preparing the food.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 10/15/2012
    Food was ok, usual Italian buffet fare. However our waitress (Megan) was terribly slow to serve us (water took over 10 minutes, clearing dishes/plates over 20 minutes - no exaggeration). At one point we asked the neighbouring server if he could get us some water and he told us "this is not my section, you will have to wait for your waitress". Why can't he bring us water?? While I know it was Kids eat for $2 on Mondays, we specifically asked for a quieter table. But it was not meant to be as we were seated right next to a table of 6 (4 kids) followed by another table of 6 (4 younger kids - noisy and standing up in a high chair!). Don't go on Monday nights unless you're going with young kids.

    We had a party of 8, food and service very good. We were late being seated and we found it very akward that we had to walk through the front entrance which was very crowded with people waiting for tables to get to the food stations . Other then that we would come again. Thank you.

    I liked the feel of the ambiance. It's cozy, quiet and romantic. The waiter promptly refilled our drinks and tidy up soiled plates. I love the chocolate-coated strawberries. The lasagna was tasty. The roasted beef, chicken and corn cob were great. Those huge pork barbeque ribs were good. Most of the different kinds of pasta sauces were poor in taste. The salad vegetables were fresh. The iced tea was bland.

    The only negative of our trip was the loudness of children crying, perhaps a division for family rooms and regular dining rooms would be an idea. Given, noise levels are bound to be higher with families present, it was loud enough to actually be a problem

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 9/30/2012
    We've been to Frankie Tomatto's a few times. We were looking for a place to host a 2nd birthday party for our twin daughters where people can choose what they wanted to eat. There were 21 of us and this fits the bill-a variety of freshly prepared food & desserts, lively atmosphere and great service from our server. The only thing that could have been better was how our table was set up. We were seated at one very long table in a narrow enclave. There was another long table set up besides us with 14 people. There wasn't enough space between our 2 tables for people to walk through so when someone needed to get out, those sitting on the aisle would get bumped or had to stand up. I think they could have set up tables for large groups better.

    We had reservations for a party of 5, we were stuck with a table meant for 4 and they added a table at the end. We were not impressed with the speed of clearing the tables and the filling of water in our glasses. My husband and I have not been to this restaurant in years because of the quality of food in the past and thought of trying the restaurant again with our kids. Overall, the food quality has improved and we will go again in the near future.

    I asked if I could change the table because my guests were new to the venue and I wished to be placed in the dining room instead of the private room which seems a bit cold. The manager or supervisor looked into it right the way and placed us in an area 5 steps away from the food centre. The corner was very nice and perfect. My guests were very impressed with the decor.

    The food is very fresh, delicious and of high quality. Many choices are available as a full service buffet. The service is well-timed and friendly. I have nothing to complain about the food and service. The price is very reasonable. It will be better if they can renovate the rooms to look more fresh and new, and expand the space. I will recommend it to others definitely.

    Usually the food is very good but this time the pizza had less toppings and the Caesar salad (which is usually excellent) seemed to be covered in only clear garlic juice (no parmesan or dressing). Good overall. Waited a long time for service for drink refills and coffee after the meal. Had to ask for the bill and take the payment up to the cash.

    We came to Frankies to celebrate a birthday and we were very disappointed. Having gone to Frankies years ago I was surprised to see the quality of the food had gone down so much. The food was oily and the service stations were a mess. We booked a reservation but we were still required to wait 15min before being seated. Overall a bad experience and we won't be coming back.

    I have been to Frankie Tomatto's several times in the past. However, this time I was not impressed with the food selection. The restaurant was over crowded and way too busy, so maybe the chef(s) couldn't keep up with the demand? Not sure what it was but everytime I went to find some food they were all out... The service was great, although she did forget one or two drinks that were ordered but there was a table of 13 of us and we weren't the only table she was serving. I would give Frankie Tomatto's the benefit of the doubt for having been so busy and would go back again to try it out once more.
