Decent, reliable and friendly place

A decent choice of New York style Italian classics. The staff always seem a little rushed off their feet, but still manage to be attentive. Probably not the best food you'll ever eat, but a good stand-by for lunch. MLS

Ordered two starters loaded bacon skins and garlic mushrooms, arrived reasonably quick and was not to bad. I order spaghetti carbonara and my partner ordered pizza and salad and side of spicy onion rings. Again arrived reasonably quick however my spaghetti carbonara was a penne pasta dish with no sauce few bits of sad looking mushrooms and bacon completely tasteless.... More

Went for breakfast here around 9am. Friendly and welcoming staff. Great choices of breakfast from budget to luxury plus free coffee or tea refills. Fast service, tasty food and no quibbles about the refills. Very good would recommend.

Went late one afternoon. Restaurant was quite empty yet our food took forever to arrive. Without even complaining a member of staff come over noticing our delay. We were given nearly the whole amount off our bill. Very friendly people.

My husband and I decided to go out on a busy Saturday night, we hadn't booked a table so had to wait about 20 mins which was fair enough as we hasn't booked, but we had a drink at the bar so that was ok. When we did get our table, the waiter guy was very attentive and looked after... More

Well I chose from the many restaurants along the waterfront Norwich Frankie and bennies as I've eaten at Frankie and bennies before in other areas. I was met in the usual way at the entrance once some one noticed me standing there. I have seen other Frankie & bennies full to the brim and had to wait in the bar.... More

Visited yesterday with my 4 year old daughter a friend and her three teenagers; we went for the lunch menu which appeared to be good value at £9.45 for 2 courses. The service was slow, they weren't busy so no excuse! The starters were ok nothing special not particularly hot when delivered. I had the Philly burger, it was tasteless... More

I went to Frankie and Bennies for the first time yesterday, we had actually gone to riverside for the all you can eat Chinese opposite but as it was bank holiday they saw fit to put the price up by £6 per head (alot when it is normally £6.99!), but I saw F&B had a lunch time menu for £6.95...
