    My stuffed artichoke was cold in the middle and obviously not a good artichoke. No meat on the leaves and very little if any heart. Way too much stuffing for an artichoke. Mussels were fair. Marinara sauce was dull. But our server was great. We ate on the balcony and it leans so much our plates might have slid off the table. Scary to me.

    There were many open tables and they sat us at the kitchen door. The shrimp in the po’boy was from frozen and had NO flavor. The table top was vinyl and did not feel clean to the touch. We were the only people in the place for the whole time it took us to eat. The help wanted sign on the website should have been a clue. The proprietor did not even greet us when we came in or while we were there or when we left. Not a pleasant experience in any way.

    This has to be the worst restaurant. I could not even eat it.. I am Italian and took one bite of the meatballs disgusting. They use cheap quality food. Parmesese is the worst. Bread horrible. After we left we went across the street to one of Our favorites Italian Barrel. Had not been to Frank’s For years. Will never go too many other Fabulous restaurants in New Orleans

    We had a muffuletta sandwich and salad with white wine. The sandwich far exceeded expectations and it was huge!! Yum would recommend everyone try this sandwich here! We were upstairs it was not busy during a rain storm on April 15. Our server lacked personality and walked extra slow when taking our order or bringing our food. We would have had dessert and another drink had he offered rather than just bringing us the bill. The tables around us seemed well attended by waitress upstairs so that is good.

    We had an absolutely wonderful meal. We started with meatballs. They are so yummy. And wonderful cocktails. Then had caprese salad - very generous portion. My main entry was veal piccata- delicious. We finished with creme brulee! All wonderfully. But the service we got from Kathy was fantastic. She made our night special.

    I made a reservation on OpenTable for red like chicken, I got a couple of reminders prior to my reservation date and time to confirm. Arrived a few minutes early and our table was waiting. The staff was friendly. The service was good. The atmosphere was very fun, and the food was excellent.

    The restaurant is simple, but nice. One of the owners was very nice and attentive while the other woman was naughty and grumpy. We had the drinks and appetizers, that were quickly served, but the main course never arrived. We waited more than 1 hour after the ppetizers, other tables that arrive after us were served and we never had our food. After all this time we decide to leave, and spend our new year eve without dinner. It was very bad.

    The worst dining experience we have had in many years. The service was rude, incompetent and extremely slow. When the food eventually arrived, it was cold. Not recommended.

    We arrived and the staff had seemingly no way Kroeger know if we had a reservation or not. We were seat and the staff was seriously overwhelmed. They ran out of cups, they didn’t bring silverware to an adjacent table and we decided just to leave. The food smelled great but Nee Years Eve was not the time to go.

    Frank’s is the “ go to” place for the true Muffaletta! Every time we travel to New Orleans it’s the 1st stop we make. They also have an array of other options of delicious pastas and shanks and Italian delicacies! You won’t be disappointed. Reservations are recommended.

    Went for an early lunch in October 2022, group of 4. We all ordered something different and the overall quality and taste of all 4 dishes was great! I got the Muffuletta and it was fantastic - would definitely get it again! The restaurant has a comfortable family feel, the service was very personal and attentive, couldn't have been more helpful. Will definitely go again next time we are in New Orleans!

    Excellent service. Our waitress was super! Very funny too. Took a group of out of town friends. The food checked all the boxes. We wanted all the famous NOLA staples. Muffuletta, their famous and delicious New Orleans BBQ shrimp, fresh caught. The Oyster Po boy. Their bread was delicious. Gumbo was dark and rich, really good flavor. Ambiance is old school New Orleans. Loved it.
