Went to see the Wild Blue Herons which did not disappoint. The sight lines were good and the layout functioned well as a cabaret restaurant and jazz venue. Food was quite good but not exceptional. The pizza was tasty but a bit salty. Would go again depending more on the artists playing than the food.

Frankies was great as usual. I really enjoy having the opportunity to listen to great music. Food is an add on really although it is fairly competent basic Italian.

Our uncle loves jazz so we took him to frankies since I have heard its great for jazz and diner. Unfortunately, while the jazz was enjoyable the performer played for almost an hour and a half straight, and no one was allowed to talk at all during this time. After the initial performance there was 15 minute break and the it resumed for another hour where no one was allowed to speak. What a terrible idea, everyone would have been much more comfortable with being able to have conversations and enjoy the food and wine while listning to music in the background. I understand the no talking rule but for such long extended amounts of time? Totally kills the vibe and mood having to sit there unable to talk to the company you are with. Maybe 20-30 minutes of jazz and then breaks in between would have been wayyyy more enjoyable. Even our uncle who used to play in a jazz band couldnt stand it! What a shame, the place is nice and food is good but the ambiance was like a cemetary after a while. Let people talk and enjoy the night with the people they came with!

I mentioned it was my partner’s 25th birthday when booking the reservation and again to our server at the restaurant. She came back with a birthday dessert- then charged me for it on my bill without mentioning there would be a cost. The staff were so pretty relaxed about reminding people not to talk during the performance and at times I heard more of the conversation from the next table over than the music. The music and food were amazing but the service needs improvement.

We wish they would change up their menu. We love it for the music, but are tired of eating there, even though the service is excellent.

Another delightful evening out at the fabulous Frankie’s Jazz Club.
Fantastic ambience, great music with Laura Crema & Sharon Minemoto, and first class service with elegance and wit by Tim, the tall & cooool server.
We will be back for more !

Absolutely perfect evening. The service, food, ambiance were fantastic. But it was the live jazz that truly made it for an unforgettable night. Thank you so much Frankie's! We will most definitely be back.

Nice little place - lively, friendly atmosphere, good music, and tasty food served by attentive waiters. Not a huge crowd, and mostly pretty well behaved, so you could actually enjoy the music!

Considering how early we booked, I thought we could get a table closer to the band than where we were placed, but all in all it was OK.

Had a great evening here. We were near the front where the trio was playing so it was a little loud to have a conversation. We all raved about our meals although the veal scallopini with spaghetti was a huge portion for one person. Our server was very good. The music as great.

Great show on Friday Dec 6. Loved it. Unfortunately there was a little too much background noise for
the first half. Second half was wonderful. No background noise and the singer and back-up band seemed more inspired.
Food and service were great, as usual.

I particularly enjoyed my experience there this past Sunday. The intimate setting made me feel like I was transported to a jazz club in another city for some reason.
The food was good, though the server did make a mistake on one of the appetizers which was not good, as I’m vegetarian and it was a seafood item that came.
Other than that, I would definitely return for more lovely music with a great ambiance!

A wonderfully sophisticated venue for dining and listening to jazz.
We had an excellent meal with terrific service from an old-school server. We also appreciated that talking is discouraged while the musicians are playing. It was like going back to a bygone era - in a good way!

Terrific band, good food efficient service. A lovely evening. Being plant based and having issues with dairy, it would have been nice to have more choices on the menu. However our server was helpful and made it work!

Nice place, good service, good band on the night we were there. Food I thought was priced on the high side but only average quality. I'd still go again for the right band.
