We found the service and the food very enjoyable. We had breakfast and lunch, and seating was always available.

Great staff and good food to go with the Thurs to Sun jazz features. Food is better than average for this type of venue but the wine list is pricey. Large portions so share a salad or appie and a main. Pasta definitely al dente. Reserve unless you want to arrive late - ten or after - when the main... More

Two of us visited Frankie's on a Friday, late afternoon. We were asked for reservations even though the restaurant was mostly empty and remained so during our entire stay. Having none, we were seated anyway. The starter bread and olive oil / vinegar was great. The service was prompt and courteous. Ambiance was perfect for talking and relaxing. The different... More

This was one of the best mushroom risotto dishes I have ever had. The place is very classy and the wait staff was very good. We ate in the club part and listened to jazz music.

My friends and I went here for lunch. We were served by the bartender, who was excellent, attentive, and had a great sense of humor. All of us are experienced travelers, and all ordered pasta dishes. The portions were very large and all four dishes were excellent and cooked perfectly. (Do not be dissuaded by reviews that say otherwise.) A... More

An enjoyable evening of great jazz and great food. We visited on a Saturday evening...the musicians started their gig at 8pm so would recommend arriving about 7:45...with a reservation. Check out the Coastal Jazz website for a listing of upcoming performers. There's a cover charge and a minimum food/drink order of $15/ person. The service was friendly and the audience... More

My wife and I enjoyed an excellent and reasonably priced breakfast while staying at the adjacent Georgian Court Hotel. The servers, especially Ashleigh, were very attentive and friendly.

I really enjoyed my dinner here. The strange thing was, the place was pretty dead on a Saturday night, but we were too tired to go elsewhere. Even though the waitress didn't have a clue what we were talking about when we asked her about the menu, we still really enjoyed it. The food was great!

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown
Vancouver's business district, the Downtown area is bustling with smartly-dressed folks balancing their lattes and briefcases to and from work. The area's plethora of contemporary commercial, residential, and corporate spaces has bred a landscape of nouveau restaurants, chain cafes, and upmarket shopping options. However, located right on the waterfront of Vancouver's energetic Harbour, Downtown is a also popular public meeting spot, with a massive public library and convention center attracting a bevy of visitors both local and not, as well as a hotspot for the arts, being home to some of Vancouver's most cutting-edge galleries. With behemoth architecture and a professional air, Downtown means business.
