Brittany was amazing as our waitress. She had a lot of fun with us as we were on a mum's night out and it had been awhile since we had gone out kids free! The cocktails were great, although a bit confusing with the size of the glasses. The food was scrumptious, I loved the spicy and sweet pork bao, however the desserts were a bit underwhelming.

The best part of the night was Brittany. It's hard to find great customer service in Geelong, but Brittany was amazing. Joked with us, had great suggestions for cocktails and food and just made our night out that little bit more special. So thank you :)

Food took over 50 minutes to come out and the venue wasn’t booked to maximum capacity. Service was good. Waitress was friendly and tried to ensure high service. Food however was not overly special; ie the chicken larb was really bland and there was no dressing option so it was just like eating lettuce with unseasoned chicken mince. Presentation of meals were ‘pretty’ enough unfortunately for the price tag doesnt match value for money or culinary experience.

Great food with pretty good service. Booth neat the food register and lack of outlook was the only drawback.

The menu looked so promising but the food was disappointing and quite expensive. The coleslaw on one of the starter dishes looked like it came out of a supermarket packet. We were seated near the front door and this was awkward when people were arriving. Waiters aprons looked in need of a good wash too.

The restaurant was perfect for our get together - booths were perfect for us to chat and not feel like we were too close to others. Food was excellent - very tasty although I found the Bao a bit spicy (not a chilli fan). Tapas-style fun way to eat. Cocktails delicious and attractively presented.

Poor service. They only had 2 waiters last Sunday so people are waiting for food, waiting to be seated, and tables are not being cleaned.

Food Generally amazing but this time it was a bit cold. Felt like it had been waiting for 5 minutes before being brought to Table. Staff super friendly, Table was near the door and near thoroughfare so was a bit noisy. This is my favourite place in Geelong but was a bit disappointed this time.

I have eaten at Frankie's numerous times as the food and service is normally great. Unfortunately the service on Friday night was terrible and not what I have come to expect from this restaurant. We had to ask for service on all four occassions to request drinks and food- not once did someone come by our table to provide service without us having to request it.

I've dined at Frankie twice in the past month, and each time it has been exceptional. The food is delicious, the drinks are amazing, but it's hard to go past the superb service. They were welcoming friendly, and full of knowledge about the menu. I'll definitely be back!!

It is a great setting really great feel to it but the service was poor!! Tried to be more than what it actually is.. waiter spilling water all over our table every time he filled our glasses.. food was ok but over did it with the chillies 🌶 they where everywhere!! Even know I love them to many on the dishes.. I’m a huge fan of Asian food and it was the second time I had been there and to be honest I won’t be going back.. sorry guys 3/10

Food was quality. Good taste and reflection of the menu you read.
Service was fantastic. Very engaging and team read the scene well, didn't over intrude.
Ambiance was unexpected. Less soothing restaurant and more pre club bar
