I have watched music shows and eaten dinner at Frankie's Jazz Club many times. It is a treat - the service is great - and I am so happy we have venues like this one in Vancouver!

It was so good to be back; the service was top notch as always, the quality of food was better than ever (no question), the sound quality as good as ever, oh and the music; what a joy to be there and experience it.
One regret is that there are no longer the signs reminding people to not talk - I get it, we all want to be free again, but...

Thank you Frankies for being there for us. Looking forward to the next one!

LOVED the Valentines day concert at Frankies. My partner and I felt well taken care of despite how busy the server was, we felt relaxed, and very happy with the food and overall ambiance. Would definitely suggest this experience to friends and will be a customer again!

The waiter was the highlight of the night. He made sure we were taken care of and always cracked jokes!

The antipasto platter was not my favorite. They only give u two small cheese slices with sub par bread. It could be better but overall the drinks and the food were great!

Such a treat! Never been here before but would go again and again... It's so cool to be able to see live music again in the wake of Covid 19. The food was incredible, as well as the service. Would 100% recommend.

Good food, great music and lots of effort put into COVID protocols for distancing of tables, sanitizing, etc. Completely loved the experience, felt completely safe as far as social distancing, and will not hesitate to come back again!
One downside: They need to bring back and enforce the "No talking during performances" rule that used to exist here. With the reduced seating the constant chatter from a couple tables towards the back really carried, and it ruined the mood when listening to the performers on stage. There are plenty of other places without live music to go to if you want to talk with your friends in person or on the phone all evening - this shouldn't be the place you choose. Enjoy the great music along with your meal and a drink or two but as a courtesy to all the other patrons: keep the conversations confined to the breaks between sets or take it outside, please!

We spent NYE with our family of 4 at Frankie’s. We had a great dinner & fabulous service but the live music is truly the stand out. It was our daughters’ first time experiencing live jazz music & we all had a great time. We will definitely be back with friends when we are allowed to gather again!

Great little Jazz bar and restaurant. Our servicer was a French girl that was super professional and fun. She provided excellent wine service. Really like when a 3 piece piano, bass and drums perform. Better than horns in this small place.

Excellent food/service/music! I would prefer that Frankie's had the hanging plexiglass partitions between the tables though, which would be my only caveat.

Great club. food is excellent and staff professional. unfortunately the night we were there a couple of tables of drunken women who really detracted from the evening. also the drums tend to be a little loud as really wanted to hear the excellent pianist.

The service was really good, she took the orders on time and was helpful and friendly. Even though they forgot to remove the ham from my pizza as I ordered, I was happy with the service. During the break, a woman left a noise policy on our table which was surprising for me as I believe we were not loud. But the disturbing part for me was the way she put it on our table, it was so rude, without explaining anything she just put it sharply and left.
Anyway, I liked the music and the atmosphere so I will go there again for sure. Overall I enjoyed my night, and I will recommend the place to my friends.
