Frank's Oyster House & Champagne Parlor
This is our favorite "go to" for oysters with friends. We like that we can make a reservation and that there is a happy hour with reduced prices. This time our visit was the best yet because of our waiter. I wish I had caught his name. He was excellent! Charming, attentive but not intrusive. Just the best!
Best brunch around
The service was great. The presentation and food choices unique and flavorful. The wine selection was varied as well. The portions however were very, very small. We ordered a tasty mushroom gnoochi dish to share for $25 and the full portion was about 3/4- 1 cup of food.
The same was true for our other items. Oysters, of course, were lovely - but a dozen cost us $35.
Glad we enjoyed it - as we can't afford it again.
Loved it! First time and plan on returning again soon!
Affectless wait staff. “Large“ plate gnocchi had about 7 gnocchi for 25$. Husband’s fried chicken was excellent and he shared a biscuit so I didn’t go hungry. Noisy for a small place.
Very accommodating and very friendly wait service!
Fun and different kind of restaurant. Like the oyster and champagne focus.
Great place to have a nice meal and drinks. It’s one of our favorite places.
Fun neighborhood gem! Great happy hour, fantastic food and service. We’ll be back!
Casual, fun place to have Sunday brunch. We enjoyed our oyster po'boy sandwich, fries and chicken/waffles. Also nice to have bottomless mimosas (3 was my max!). Parking is a little bit of a challenge, but otherwise it was fine. I'd definitely recommend reservations since it's on the small side.
The evening started out headed for 2 stars, but they made a miraculous recovery! We had a “counter” reservation for two at 6pm. They sat us instead at a table in the main dining room, and the ambiance in there is markedly less cozy and intimate than the counter in the “parlor” side (which is apparently first come first serve despite asking on Open Table if you want table or counter). Was a bit disappointed since this was our first fun night out after a long Dry January! Decided to just stay at the dining room table instead of moving to the counter (after being too slow to nab a couple stools at the cozy counter). We then waited for about 40 minutes before we could order and had more than water to drink on the table. :-( Despite that disappointing start, the server was very nice and the food was great (especially the chocolate cake!) Will go back and try again, being sure to grab a spot on the parlor side!
Pretty small portions for what you pay, but delicious!
We had a lovely dinner at Frank’s. The service was great and they didn’t rush us through dinner so we had plenty of time for great conversation and wonderful food.
Great service! Nice selection of menu items. I loved the soup shots on the happy hour menu!
Excellent and creative Pacific Northwest cuisine in a small plates format with great service. A neighborhood gem.
The food wasn’t all that great—bland flavors and not much to write home about past the first course. It’s unfortunate that this was our first time trying this place out, with a prix fixe menu at that. We did not get our money’s worth and the prices surrounding the menu were a bit facetious. The service also took forever, with us waiting 15 minutes or so between 4 courses.
Servers were nice and did well. Food was good, but not great - it just didnt quite seem to deliver on the description.
The food is normally amazing. I felt like it was just ok this visit. Portions weren’t had flavorful. The ambiance is perfect though and our server was very good.
Went to Frank's for brunch. The menu had a great selection, service was excellent, and the food was tasty. The best part was, unlike some other popular brunch places, you aren't crammed into a loud noisy room. Excellent ambiance!!
Truly another wonderful meal/drinks here.
Waited a really long time for our food and dinners were ok.
Delicious cocktails and oysters on the half shell served on a clever ice cube display tray. Other mains were great. Cool vibe and not too loud!
Very fun neighborhood place that has good food and wine and service.
I really really wanted to like this place. We had 5 people and tried many dishes. Only the oysters ranked as good quality. Their so called famous fried chicken was dry and predominantly batter and the ravioli was very undercooked and doughy. The lobster rolls tasted like thick pieces of bread wrapping flavorless lobster meat. My mother in law to this day keeps apologizing for taking us there. I don’t write reviews and definitely try to look for the good in things, but we spent a fortune and it was just a total let down.
Love love the small plate selections, consistently good. For an oyster house there aren't very many oyster offerings (usually three), but what they do offer on that front is high quality. Great spot.
I don't fault them for trying but, the food at Frank's is not good. The menu is a bit scattered too. I mean if you can't execute on small plate offerings then don't offer them. I'm quite certain you need a small army of well trained staff, spacious kitchen, to do small plates well and Frank's seems to have neither. Focus on core competancy and refrain from trying to reivent the wheel. My dad ordered a Crab Louie Salad and what he got was lettuce tacos!
Went for restaurant week. Nice evening, great service and good was really good. Especially the ravioli and chicken and waffles!
I was thrilled to find this place. I wanted a romantic date night with my husband. I loved that it was locals(not full of tourist) and not too busy/noisy.
The food was very good..prices were good and our server was great. Next time I think Id like to sit in the bar- it looked really cozy.
Get the fried chicken dinner. The biscuits and mashed potatoes are the perfect complement to the amazing crispy boneless chicken. YUM
Charming staff, amazing food. Great spot for our low-key anniversary dinner. We will be back!
Delicious brunch with friends. Reasonable prices and reasonable portions.
Love this place. Great service every time.
Best eggs Benedict! Great place to catch up with friends. Breakfast menu has something for everyone. Can’t wait to go back.
Terrific unique setting with delicious food. Almost a speakeasy vibe. The cocktail menu was superb.
Great experience all around, from being greeted at the door to cocktails and oysters to our main courses. I recommend the buttermilk fried chicken as one of the best comfort food meals I've had in a long time. It was recommended to me by our very pleasant and witty server, so I suppose he gets all the credit for my recommendation to you. I was part of a group of four and everyone loved everything that was brought to the table. Casual, tasteful atmosphere. The bar looked like a cozy spot too. We'll be back!
Note: One person in our group was restricted by food allergies and the server and kitchen were very understanding and accommodating!
the amount of food was not worth the price and the service was horrible.
We went for fish. Clearly oysters are the reason to go. Summer evening. We sat outside. Inside was A.C. frigid. It's clean...first thing you smell walking in is bleach. Our dishes were over-sauced and under-portioned. Service was very good and accommodating. Service A-; Food B.
Nice place. I'd say the quality of the cooking didn't quite keep up with the menu which reads beautifully.
