The food was wonderful, even the leftovers the next day. Everything was very fresh.
My husband has had chicken piccata on 2 different occasions. Both times the vegetables
were different...fresh. Yum

My friend and I had dinner at Frankie's B-town bistro this week. The food was great but the service was excellent! Be sure to save room for the cream brule' - It is to die for!

We went for the live music, and when I made the reservation, I asked to sit near the band; this request was graciously granted. The food was delicious, but seemed overpriced ($25 for a pasta special). The atmosphere was fun, and we met some nice fellow diners, but the owners seemed oblivious to us as they chatted a few times with the parties on either side of us.

We felt like we walked into an extension of our family while dining here. The staff were so warm and inviting and were trying their hardest to make sure our evening out with my parents from out of town and my 10 month old was spectacular. The food was fresh and local and the pasta was authentic. We'll be back.

Very disappointing dinner, the servers and owners are friendly, but almost too friendly. We waited for a long time to get water and drinks, but at the same time the owners were introducing themselves and loitering around our table which was very uncomfortable. The food was ok but nothing I would rush to return for. Have been a restaurant owner for 10 years I know how hard this business can be, but customers are not coming in to be chatted up by staff and owners.

I can't believe I'm just discovering this place. This is EXCELLENT Italian food for a neighborhood restaurant. The roasted brussels sprouts were the best I've ever had...and I've had a lot. The staff were very sweet to my kids, offering to let them build their own pizzas next time. I will definitely be back!

Frankie's is a jewel in Burien's crown. The food there is superb, and the chef is amazing. The wait staff are outstanding, you won't have to wonder where they went ever. The owners wander through and make you feel like you're a guest in their home. The night we were there a band (PB&J) was playing, which was excellent. You need to go!

We brought our friends from Burien Actors Theatre with us. Frankie's has a 'Dinner and a Show' deal with BAT that provides you with dinner at Frankies and tickets to a performance at BAT for $35. That's a steal of a deal! Burien has it all!

Our group went to Frankie's B-Town Bistro after attending the current play at Burien Actors Theatre (BAT). Frankie's and BAT are partnering for the program 'Dinner And A Show'. For a $35 meal you get tickets to the theater, included. It's a great deal for patrons! It just shows how terrific it is when companies partner together to benefit their community.

The food was spectacular! The ambiance is unbeatable! You're treated like family at Frankie's.

The play at BAT was outstanding, too! We had a great night!

There seemed to be some confusion with the wait staff. Although our reservation was for 5:15 pm, when we got there the card on our table said 6:15 pm, and there didn't seem to be a waiter assigned to our table. It took quite a while to get our drinks and our meals, but fortunately none of us were in a hurry! Everyone who did wait on us was very cordial, and polite.

It was a busy night and although I left message I was handicapped they didn't expect m me in a power wheelchair. It was a very busy night because it was was "dinner and theater" night. BUT immediate room was made for me by moving a couple from the one table to another! There was only one table available for handicapped seating,which is the only bad thing I can say. We were in that "no hurry" mode for food and the wait staff was superb in complying with every request we had made! The food,oh the food was extraordinary! The menu was overwhelming only because I couldn't decide what to have. I never have desert but because the food amount was just right I was able to have some! I can not say anything bad even with the beginnings of a bad date(no seat for me)it turned out t be one of our best dinning experiences!

Frankie’s B-Town Bistro served a wonderful Valentine’s dinner. Everyone is treated like they are long lost friends, even when they are very busy. They provided a “special” menu but we could also pick from the regular menu. Food there is always cooked perfectly and we love the use of very fresh vegetables. Best shrimp ever came with the lobster ravioli. Look forward to going there any night, and now open for lunch too.

Frankie's is a quintessential neighborhood Italian restaurant. Food that is well prepared and traditional. The service is excellent, clearly the owner cares about his clientele. The traditional Italian dishes at Frankie's are up to the standards that you would expect if you are eating grandma's Italian food. The eggplant Parmesan and the baked seafood gnocchi are exceptional, and the pasta dishes are all cooked to perfection. My only real complaint with the food is that they put garlic in their Fettuccine Alfredo. Please Frankie's leave the garlic out of delicate issues like Alfredo's. The bottom line is, if you're looking for a casual Italian meal with exceptional food, Frankie's is a great place to go for lunch or dinner.

Wonderful evening with great food and fun to enjoy an evening with wine tastings...a special event they have once a month. The ambience was perfect to catch up with a dear friend and feel at home, very cozy setting. The service was attentive and kept us trying a new wine or enjoying our appetizers, dinner and salad. Every time I come I like to try a new dish, I've never been disappointed. The produce is amazingly fresh coming straight from Frank's Quality Produce at the Pike Place Market. I highly recommend this up and coming restaurant for any occasion.

We love the fresh vegetables and meats, not to mention their complimentary focaccia bread! Frankie’s family owns a produce booth at the Pike Place Market. The roasted brussel sprouts and antipasto platter were delicious appetizers. We had steak with preserved lemon and vegetables, chicken piccata (Best in the World), ciopino, and chicken parmesan. Our friends hadn’t dined here before, and will definitely return again and again!
