Host was so attentive! He was very aware of our needs. Even though we had to wait for a bit, we sat comfortable in the front with cocktails. Due to the wait, drinks were on the house! Overall, an amazing experience and will 100% go back.

We always love Frankie and the food is always wonderful. Last night we were placed near the door on a cold night. We asked if the front door could be closed and they did finally close it the second time. We spent half the dinner eating with our coats on while sitting outside. I would love if they could find a solution with a heavy curtain to better control the temperature. All else was great but the temperature did impact our dinner.

Very cute atmosphere and a nice spot for brunch. The menu is a little bit limited and the portions are on the smallish side but we were all pleased with our meals and will be back.

The apps were pretty good, but the entrees were a let down. The fish (fish and chips) was bland and so was the half chicken. Half chicken was also pretty dry and the chips (fish and chips) weren’t crispy at all. App portions overall are very small. The hummus is $12 and no more than 2 oz worth on the plate, as well as three very small pieces of flatbread. Not a value for the price at all.

We were able to get a seat outside, under the awning. I appreciate that the restaurant has had to change its layout to accommodate more outdoor diners because of COVID. However, the tables were very close to one another and we had a few awkward interactions with the group sitting at the table next to us because of it.

Logistics aside, the food and drinks were delicious. Portions are spot on. The restaurant itself is beautifully decorated and it's a really place to spend a few hours catching up with friends!

Remarkably poor service (I had "Joe" according to my receipt).
I took my mother here tonight, and despite signs in front of the restaurant stating that people must have masks to enter, none of the servers were wearing masks (both when serving tables inside and outside).
Also, our server kept forgetting when I asked for more water and for extra napkins (he originally spilled water on us, in part due to there being no light at all for the outdoor tables/it was dark). He was rudely aggressive and pushy in asking us to place our orders (even though I was on the phone with a friend). But after we ordered, he practically vanished (except once, very late, to bring us our food and to spill our water on us). When we pointed out at the end that there was way too little light for the outdoor seating to operate at night, he didn't realize that we were alluding to his spillage faux pas and just replied "Yeah! No light!" with an awkward smile.
Extremely poor service. It's sad because I had been to this place at least twice before, both times were a couple of years ago, and the quality has gone so far downhill, it's unbelievable.

Frankie does some things very well: their own flatbread is very good, as was a very fresh tomato/peach salad with ricotta . The spicy lamb sausage was very tasty also. They fall off a bit in the timing of the entrees, bringing 2 of 4 first, a 3rd a bit later and a 4th very late. The Frankie burger was overcooked and the dumplings while tasty, were not tender. I love that they offer natural wines but a mixed cocktail was average. I think they could really tighten things up and be very good.

Such a cute spot and have been wanting to go here so long! Food is excellent BUT the service was not at all what I expected. When we entered the staff was extremely rude and gave us an attitude as soon as we walked in. We had reservation for outside but noticed there was no one inside. We simply just asked if it was okay to move inside if possible since no one was inside. But the manager or whoever he was interrupted the waitress and said we’ll it does matter with an attitude and said they had reservations at 6:30 pm. Note it was 5:00 pm. Not trying to cause a disruption in the flow we said we would just stay outside. After that they kept pushing us to order. Even took away our menus after we ordered apps and were planning on ordering more! This guy was a piece of work. I would love to go back and take friends there but now I just don’t want to deal with the service issue if there’s a ton of other great food spots with 100% better service!

It was a good brunch. The Irish Coffee was a definate stand out of the whole meal. The food was alright! The space is very pretty. We sat inside as the humidity was out of control but htey do have a huge outdoor patio in fron that would be nicer for more fresh days.

Fantastic!! We picked this place randomly because we hadn’t been there before & we enjoy trying new places. What an experience! The host & servers were super nice & very knowledgeable about the cuisine. The atmosphere was adorable and tropical like. The food, exquisite! Never had anything like everything on the menu and loved every single bite! It’s a must go!

Come for the happy hour, stay for the vibes! The wine and cocktail lists are both perfect for a modest end of the week celebration. Enjoy them with one of the happy hour priced flatbreads as the hummus is spectacular. We also enjoyed the Branzino which was topped with fresh aromatics and cooked perfectly. I love what they've done with their outdoor seating and would certainly return... perhaps for brunch!

Everything was great, the food is really good, and the service as well, I will come back soon. The only issue I had was with my dessert, it took time to have it, like 20 minutes waiting.
