I hosted clients here for lunch. It is a lovely room and we were all impressed with both the food and the service. The menu had a great selection. I will be back!

“Great location, slow service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2012

Dined at Frankie's while staying at the Georgian. Service was very slow, food was not bad and prices were reasonable.

We arrived after a long day on the Rocky M train and did not need the stress of waiting, and waiting. It would have been more pleasant to enjoy the lovely hotel room that we paid for.

“Perfect Location - and the food's great too!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2012

We were attending one of the final nights of Jersey Boys at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre in Vancouver and wanted to complete the Jersey experience with Italian cooking. Couldn't have picked a better spot. Frankie's is in the next block, booked our family dinner for 8, complimented the play and then made the meal memorable. Great service, nice wine selection and my fish risotto was superb.

“Vancouver location, not North Van!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2012

This restaurant is right across from B. C. Place and some of the reviews mean this location. My husband and I went after the B.C. Lions game. We both had pasta and it was very authentic and tasty. The bowl it comes in is enormous and the meal looks small in it but it was of adequate size. The waiter was polite and the meals came pretty quick. The noise level was high...even the waiter said it was loud! Prices were average. Mine was $14.00 and husband's was $15.00 Would go again to try pizza and appetizers.
