It was lovely to get a chance to dine out again now that BC is in Phase 2. Our table was well over 2 metres away from other diners and we felt very safe. The food was as delish as ever and we got to enjoy their yummy brussel sprouts again. The service was great, as usual! Frankie's is one of our favourite restaurants in down town Victoria. We go at least once a month!

Food is good. Meal deal easily feeds a normal adult, and it is reduced portions.
Stromboli could feed two - portions are large.

We came in for New Year’s Day brunch and were not disappointed! The service and food were excellent, and we loved our pineapple mimosas. Everything was scrumptious. The steak was cooked perfectly; the potatoes were beautifully crispy; the pancakes were delicious! I’d definitely come here again!

I think this was our best meal yet. Everything was delicious and wonderful. Our server was amazing and very helpful. It was the night of the parade downtown and you wouldn't have guessed because the service was still great despite how busy things were.

Frankie's is our favourite place to go for family meals. Please keep up the great work. We appreciate you!

There were 10 of us and they seated us in the back room (which was a really cool space). Everyone trickled in over the course of the first hour and the staff were very accommodating. The food was delicious and great value and they let us linger a little bit after they had closed!

Thank you!!

Frankie's Diner is an outstanding locally owned diner. The stromboli is highly recommended as is their homemade tomato soup. This is a regular "go-to" restaurant for our family of young and old.

I always come to Frankie's with out-of-town guests because there is something for everyone to like on the menu. Also have introduced local friends to Frankies. Good food, good service. Never disappointed.

This place is amazing. We stumbled upon it the first morning of our vacation in Victoria and went back every morning after. The atmosphere is very old fashioned diner but at the same time the furniture is new and super clean. Staff is very friendly and efficient. And the food is absolutely amazing. You need to eat here if you are in Victoria.

Frankie’s has great food. I recommend reservations and it’s loud so harder in a larger group. The three course meal is a great option to try more than one item. No waiting area and hostess station staff was irritable but overall worth going.

We love Frankie's and have been going there since they opened. We always take friends and family there when they come to visit. No matter what time of day we go the service is always outstanding and the food is consistently great. Our favorite item is the deep fried cheese sticks.

Atmosphere was great, food was ok a little bland for a lot of the main dishes. Service was excellent! As well drinks were tasty. Everything was fairly timely. The biggest issue was the bland flavours for a lot of the meals. The mozzarella sticks, bruschetta, Brussels were great. The tomato soup had no flavour, the sandwiches were the same lacking flavour. Overall fairly good experience. Thank you
