Such a great experience with some classic Italian meals that reminds me a lot of my Nonna’s cooking. Definitely will come back! Keep up the great food and experience.

I've eaten here on numerous occasions and have enjoyed what I've ordered, however my meal last night was terrible - chicken linguini from the happy hour menu... I asked to have it without the sun-dried tomatoes but they also removed the cherry tomatoes which I love. the chicken was bland and tasteless, the sauce was too thick and therefore clumpy - I could not finish it. I should have returned it, but I was hungry and tried to make the best of it.

Overall a good Italian restaurant. Good appetizers, though a bit small. The focaccia they gave was great. Food was a bit salty. A bit strange playing hip hop and having jazz next door but can appreciate that it’s tough to balance that.

Ordered chicken, served lamb, chicken served 15 minutes later, everyone else had finished. Bill included both chicken and lamb. cleared dishes while still eating

Responded on June 26, 2021

Hello and thank you for your feedback. We apologize for your experience from serving lamb instead of Chicken Marsala. We offer no excuse here. We served the chicken as quickly as we could, but there is a 12 minute cook time on that dish. The second error was presenting the bill with the lamb entree, which was not intended. We would be happy to discuss this further with you and provide a remedy to your experience. Feel free to reach out directly to Jake K. Dir Ops. info-van@frankies.ca.

I'd like to start saying: Wow! What an amazing experience I had.

I went to Frankie's for the first time to celebrate my 10th year anniversary with my wife.

You can find everything you are looking for from delicious food to great staff. I can't also forget to mention the people we had contact with, Nicole and Jason, they were just amazing with us.

For sure won't be our last time at Frankie's.

Food and service were good. Great Caesar salad and pasta. Would have scored higher but we were there 15 mins before happy hour was over but weren’t told we could order from the happy hour menu. Otherwise, the meal and service were good and they even brought a dessert for my husbands birthday and we hadn’t even requested it. It was a lovely surprise.

Went for our anniversary dinner. Arancini was good. However main courses were subpar. We ordered a shrimp Pasta ?fettucini, which was bitter. The Lamb shank was also quite tasteless other than the risotto. Tiramisu was good. With drinks, the Frankie Caesar was decent but we ordered a tequila based cocktail which tasted like tequila+seltzer water and quite unpalatable. Won’t be returning again.

Stayed at the hotel for one night and did dessert in the evening and brunch the next day. The chocolate torte was absolutely delicious, and a very generous portion to share between 2 people. Got a nice, quiet table by the window and enjoyed the ambience and privacy. Brunch was quite good the next day, although they didn't have breakfast sausages available which was disappointing. The fried potatoes were yummy, the salad was a nice touch, and the hotel discount was a bonus. Definitely recommend eating here.
