Frankie's Italian Kitchen & Bar
Great location. Great space. Personlized service. Go on a Wednesday. All bottled wine is 50% off!
The waitress was very slow and it was not busy . The food was very bland and not worth the prices
Had the spaghetti and meatballs, which is one of their signature dishes, the spaghetti was perfect, had the firmness I wanted and the sauce was not excessive. The meatballs was not as warm as the pasta but I decided it would do instead of sending them back.
Noise level was a bit louder than I wanted, but it was a Friday eve and the restaurant is across from B.C. Place and Robson St.
Didn’t see anyone try the lasagna which is another signature dish but if I’m in the area again I may possibly order it myself.
Leckeres Essen, aufmerksamer Service. Auch mit Kindern gut machbar.
Great pizza, service, etc, ……………………………………………………………………………….
We went to Frankies for dinner prior to a recent BC Lions game............. This visit turned out to be the best part of the night. Food was good, so was the service. We will be back again!
Absolutely would recommend Frankie’s. The price point and food was great. Waiter was very efficient and we loved the location.
It was amazing! Great food and service! Low light and private. Would definitely recommend.
Service staff seemed to be a distracted with setting up the adjoining room and so for seemingly long periods of time we had no staff or only one person in the dining room. Not sure what was going on there.
I had a coffee, but had to ask for sugar to be put on the table. I had a brunch item with toast but had to ask for some jam to be put on the table. Those are minor service faults but it wouldn't hurt to polish up those smaller details of service, eh?
I ordered an Italian omelet and found the first bite to be full of mushrooms and thought - nice enough. But I was looking forward to getting a tasting of the sausage and the other ingredients. About three bites in I realized that I had a mushroom omelet and not what I had ordered. It tasted just fine although I was tiring of the never ending mushrooms and at this point in time it was just not worth noting the error and then waiting for my entree to be corrected.
So, the experience was OK and maybe even good. I came to get something to eat and I left full. That was my need, so all is good. But if I came to savour my food and be supported with skilled tabled side service, I would have been disappointed.
I took my wife and my mom for dinner before the Paul McCartney concert. Though it was extremely busy due to the concert, the service was very attentive and treated us well. The food and appies were great. Highly recommended for any pre-event dining at BC Place.
Service was slow and it is a very noisy venue. Could not chat and be heard. Had to shout.
Excellent service, well-paced presentation of food and drinks - fabulous Manhattans!! - our waiter was outstanding and our meal delicious. We'll be back!
Very friendly staff made a good meal even better. Highly recommend visiting this establishment. Try the arancini and the caprese buratta. Looking forward to my next visit to Vancouver so I can go again.
We were a little early and were graciously seated at a window table. I was meeting with people who I had not seen for many years and our server was great, giving us lots of space to talk but still looking after us very well. I had the halibut special, it was delicious, my guests each had a pasta dish and they really enjoyed their choices. Good wine, good food, good service, doesn’t get any better than that. Thank you !
We dined at Frankie's for the very first time. We came over from Victoria to see the ELO concert. Both my husband and myself thought it was the best pasta dinner we have ever had - just wonderful!! And the Wednesday half off reserve wine was a bonus! We'll be back!
I love Frankie's! It's my go to for events at BC Place or Rogers Arena. The menu has something for everyone and is reasonable. I've not been disappointed yet. They have always been consistent. I reserve thru opentable.ca the easiest way to make sure you get a table on busy nights.
We went see Oprah
We were pleasantly surprised that they held our reservation when we were 20 min late due to traffic & parking. It was the night of the Oprah Winfrey Show so very busy. A little over the top wine prices but other than that we were very impressed overall.
It was great.
It was wonderful. We could only get a 430 seating and weren’t asked to leave for a 2nd seating. Stayed until 7.
Wow, pan seared halibut was the feature and it was superb. Great waiter, good ambiance, excellent food. You cant go wrong here.
Superb food quality, perfectly prepared, and excellent service.
We were seated right on time and our server was very friendly and helpful - she understood we had a timeline (we were watching a soccer game at the stadium across the street following dinner) and made sure we had our food with plenty of time.
The food as always was excellent and the service superb!
Wasn’t very impressed this time around, after two great experiences several years ago. Service was sporadic, despite a few tables being seated. When occasional person did come by, they were unhelpful (‘you’ll have to ask your server’).... Two of three appies were fine. But main course protein was a fail (old meat??). Pasta was cooked perfectly. Cocktails were meh. Won’t be trying it again, would rather venture into other options in the area...
Food was outstanding. I had the lasagna I was dreaming of. My husband had the Shrimp Scampi w/ Lobster cream sauce which was the best I've ever tasted. Wine selection was very nice. We noticed it was especially easy to carry on a conversation even though the restaurant was fairly full.
We dined at Frankies the first evening of our stay in Vancouver. Our hotel was the neighboring Georgian Court Hotel. Not even counting the convenience of the location, the food was first rate. We loved the lamb shanks and the lasagna. There are not a lot of moderately priced restaurants in this area of the city (within walking distance) so the next night we ended up returning to Frankies and having a second enjoyable experience. Lamb shanks again and pesto gnocchi. I give Frankies high marks for value.
Generally eat here before football games. Almost didn’t this season because last year the service was so poor every time we were there. Could not get over the change this time, excellent greeting, server came over as soon as we were seated and offered beverages more than once during our visit. We will be reserving for the next game. Huge difference from last year.
My boyfriend and I came to Frankie's for our 5 year anniversary which we had made note of when making the reservation nothing extra was done. We felt very rushed while we were there. My boyfriend finished his meal first and as the waiter was clearing his plate he looked over at me and asked if I wanted my food wrapped up to go mid-bite. Overall the food was good but we didn't enjoy the service.
The food is authentic Italian and delicious with every bite. The best food hands down my family and I had in Vancouver. The only downside is we weren't able to get into the other side of the restaurant for the live jazz.
We had a lovely dinner before the Andrea Boccelli concert and it was the perfect place! The lasagna was excellent!! I recommend it!!
From out of town to attend Andrea Bocelli Concert and wanted a restaurant close to Rogers Arena..nice menu, reasonably priced and good service. Would go back
Date night in Canada before a concert
service charge on the weekend and then yr supposed to tip. food was good. been better lastime we were there.
Enjoy some appies and a beverage before the football game. Very Nice
Our party ordered 3 tenderloins . 1 was cooked as requested. The other 2 were completely over cooked. The server never came back to ask how our meals were. We should have sent them back but we had a event we needed to attend and didn't want to risk being late. Service todsy wasn't very good. Perhaps they were having a bad day, I have been there once before and the food and service was excellent.
A plus in every way.
Ore concert dinner with friends.
Great service& fabulous food.
The service was excellent. The food was very good and the portions were a good size.
