I think the no talking rule is a bit much. As a musician patron, I like discussing aspects of the performance with my musician friends during the song occasionally

Good experience. Unfortunately the club is not easily attainable for students and lower income people.

Perhaps 6 of the entry bar stools could be set aside as lower priced seats.

Nice place for taking in music although the place was half empty. Maybe try promoting to all the hotels nearby.
Food needs some work however - wouldn’t get the lamb entree again.
Server was quirky to the point of odd - we felt sorry for him.
Overall a bit pricey considering markup on alcohol, cover charge for band and tip.
Not sure we’ll be back for some time.

Every evening we spend a Frankie's is special. Starting with a great server who was warm but professional (with a little sass thrown in for good measure), to a lovely cocktail, great supper and stellar
entertainment our night was a success. We brought along friends who had never been there but are now
planning to return :)

Frankie’s is that rare combination of great jazz, delicious food, and excellent service. Erica is a knowledgeable and
gracious server. I have dined here several times, and will certainly return.

Went to see drummer Steve Smith and his band. As it was a Jazz Festival show, there was a $35 charge per person. What they didn't tell us was that you couldn't see Steve Smith from our table. As I expressly went to see him play, this was a huge negative. I asked to be moved but was told there were no tables to move us to. When I suggested that selling seats to a show that you can't see was misleading, I was told that we should have booked earlier to get a better table. Needless to say we won't be going back.

It was our first experience at Frankies. The vibe was great, food was good, and Jazz performer fantastic. My only complaint would be our server...she left something (or should I say, a lot) to be desired, which was unfortunate.

Booked early so we had a fine table at the front, perfect for concentrating on the performance we came to hear. Very happy about that! The food pleasantly surprised us; it came to the table hot and proved to be very tasty, both my lasagna and my partner's Chicken Marsala. The wine list provided a lovely California Cabernet. Our server was excellent with the just the right attentiveness and personality. We also appreciated our fellow diners who gave the musicians due respect by putting the dampers on chattering tongues and clattering dishes. All in all a most enjoyable evening!

Hi,

I had a terrible time on Tuesday night.

Custoners were frequently taking photos and dancing an an inch away from me.

I spent $42.00 dollars plus $7.00 dollars on parking. I am requesting a full refund of $42.00 dollars

I am always very happy at Frankie's......love the outstanding service and the VERY wonderful music that we hear. Most enjoyable. I recommend Frankie's to my pals, most of whom are music fans. Thank Cory Weeds for his excellent programming.

One thing: please change up the menu from time to time. I would love to see pork chops and some more vegetarian dishes.

My compliments to all!! Betty Perverzov

We came primarily to hear the Dylan Cramer trio. Usually have snack and drinks, but this time we both enjoyed excellent dinners and a fine bottle of wine.
And the music did not disappoint--in fact even better than when it's just Dylan and Bob Johnson on piano.
This trio is absolutely outstanding. Looking forward to the next gig at Frankie's on August 25th.

Food was not good. I had to send back one of my dish. Too salty.
Also, found a whole piece of bay leave inside a polenta fry, not sure how that is possible. This indicates the kitchen is not very careful at food prep. scary.

Fabulous evening at Frankie's recently with the amazing Misha Piatigorsky Trio. The food was also great that night. We had Seafood Linguini which included a half lobster tail, clams, mussels, fresh fish, jumbo prawn, tomato sauce, lobster bisque. The sauce was full of umami, incorporating the freshness of the seafood with a bisque. We also had the daily special of Rainbow Trout with vegetables, beautifully presented and just as delicious.
