We booked in for 8:30 as there was no earlier times. It stated that if you book then you can stay late. We chose the feed me option but were told that finishes at 8:00pm. Ordered some dishes to share. I chose this restaurant also because of the GF options. It seems that some of the dishes are cooked in the same oil as dishes containing gluten so some were unsuitable. We realized that what we ordered wasn’t enough and asked to order more only to be told the kitchen was closed at 9:00pm. The staff were pleasant but we were not advised that the kitchen would be closing at 9:00pm. I have eaten lunch here before and it was very good so I was disappointed to have organized a catch up with friends and have an ordinary experience.
We left and had to go to a cake bar as everyone was still hungry and nothing else was opened.
I was a little disappointed. We had a 6.30 booking. Last time I went it was lunch - the menu was the same and I would’ve given it 5 stars. Hence my return. Unfortunately the duck breast looked hacked at, instead of beautifully sliced into 6pcs, the coriander was well past it’s due date and when we ASKED to see the menu for dessert we were informed the kitchen was closed. We had 2 drinks each but would’ve had more had they offered. Not rating it...
Great food, delicious cocktails and fantastic service. Will definitely be going back in the future.
Wonderful food and great service. Venue is perfectly located for pre theatre meals.
Lovely staff great tasting food generously served will come back for sure.
Unfortunately a really disappointing experience! We were seated directly into the sunlight with nothing to ease the sunlight shining straight into our eyes. The food was average also. So much better last visit so unsure if we just visited on a bad night.
Always our BFF venue !! Great vibe , friendly and informative staff . Fun cocktails and tasty food ... birthday wishes were appreciated and we will always come back
Food fabulous. Service perfect and informative however not pushy. Spacious where tables not right next to each other which we love. Will be back!
Food was great, we booked a table and although the place was quiet we were placed right next to the bar counter and old cake display. Lots of staff talking right next to us as they come in/out of shifts and we were hot from the machines. Food was good and service good but we felt like our special night wasn't special because we felt like we were sitting on the sidelines of the fun
Food was delicious. Service was fantastic. I would highly recommend to everyone who enjoys Asian fusion style food.
Beautifully presented and delicious sharing plates of food and attentive service. Really enjoyed our experience at Frankie.
Amazing and delicious food and such a friendly waiter. Definitely try the bao.
Great dinner. We were the only 3 in the restaurant but the food was stunning, drinks were lovely, staff were friendly and observant. We will be back absolutely. Keep up the good work!
Hands down the best calamari I've had!
All the meals were so fresh, light and full of flavor!
The staff were welcoming, informative and helpful.
Definitely will be coming back!
Absolutely love Frankie’s, love the decor, the atmosphere , staff friendliness and the food is just delicious
The interior inside Frankie is very nice, the updated menu is delicious however it’s quite expensive. We found the bao buns very average, the pork belly was really tough and dry and thin. Really yummy cocktails
I went to frankies with four other friends and we all left satisfied and full we also had fantastic service which helped guide us in our ordering
Trendy restaurant, close to Geelong CBD. Friendly and helpful staff, willing to make the dining experience the best it can be.
Amazing food, perfect for sharing and was a great night celebrating. Would recommend the crab and the bao buns! Slow service, only one bartender on but was manageable as we weren’t drinking. That might have been why! Everything was fantastic, love Frankie always!!
We were really excited to come here. Some of what we ordered was lovely but the service was terrible. We ordered a crab dish but the crab came out while with no way to break it up, when we asked for something we were given rusty pliers ....
We waited half an hour for 1 drink. Sadly disappointed in the experience, especially when we brought guests from out of town.
It was very disappointing to be told their plates are share food then to order a dish to share between 3 and they proceed to bring out 3 of the same dish........no apologies and then we were expected to pay for them !!
Also ordered drinks that took 20 mins to arrive at the table .
Booked for 5.45 - not told the table would be needed at 8.00pm . We were told at 7.55 that we had to leave in the next few minutes even thou they had just bought us drinks !!!!!
Definitely would not go back in a hurry - too many other good restaurants offering great service
Good quality food at reasonable prices. Excellent gluten free choices. Reasonably priced wine options. Service poor, very poor. One waiter only working - food service very slow.
We visited Frankie for my daughters 21st birthday lunch with her Nana. The service staff were friendly, knowledgeable and very efficient. The food was amazing, clean, fresh and delicious. We will definitely be back!
We were a table of four. We chose the “feed me” option, it started out with a great selection of entrees that were delicious. Then we had the bao which were quite nice, I am not a huge fan of these but the others on our table liked them. The main was the disappointing part though. Between four of us we got two dishes, and they were both pork. After the amazing selection of entrees we were left wondering if they’d forgotten to bring out the rest of the food... we waited for awhile and thought “nope, this must be it”
I’m not sure if I would go back, still undecided, the entrees saved it for me.
Dinner was delicious, well priced and the staff were lovely. Will definitely visit again
Lovely set up and pleasant staff
Good value, Tasty food and good drink choices.
Couldn’t fault the service.
The food however is saturated in and too much flavour. Everything was so overpowering.
Really enjoyed the meal. Great place to take a group and enjoy sharing the meals. Good value and service was great. Would definitely go back here again.
The main I had was very sweet without much flavour and had chilli through it which wasnt mentioned on the menu. It also took over 20 mins to have a drink order filled. The sides were very tastey though.
Booked into Frankie for a quick celebration, 5 family members looking for good food and a chance to catch up. The staff were great with our waiter (can’t remember his name sorry) looking after us and making some recommendations that were spot on! 5 old fashioned whiskies in the lovely private booth and we left feeling very content! Great asset to gtown and we will be back.
Kitchen closed a bit early (9pm)for a Friday which was disappointing as it is the type of menu that is fun to just keep ordering from. They also packed up around us which was unexpected as it is usually a busy little cocktail bar as well but it was near to empty.
Can not fault the food though. Delicious
The menu and drinks were quite expensive but the food was amazing, absolutely loved the new menu
The food at Frankie’s was absolutely delicious, we will definitely be back soon
Amazing Asian fusion with dishes full of flavour & well portioned! Great atmosphere, spacious dining with large bar
Service was friendly and helpful.
Food tasted amazingly yummy.
Great choice of drinks.
I didn't know Frankie existed until saw some reviews when looking for somewhere to go for lunch. The interior looks nice and music not too loud. Peking duck pancakes were tasty, though I prefer duck little less cooked and served with a bit more greens. Spicy sweet&sour pork belly bao was nice but to my liking the chutney was little overpowering. I simply could have just removed some. Chicken Laab was gorgeous. Loved sharing these dishes with girlfriend. Nice wine and wine glasses. Staff very friendly and mostly attentive. We were after coffees to finish but were forgotten for a while so didn't bother. Overall very enjoyable and will be back. Would be ideal for a group to share many dishes.
All our food choices were delicious, not huge servings but not too small either. Staff were helpful and provided the perfect amount of attention. Slightly on the expensive side: one main (which we shared) and three sharing plates with no drinks cost $74. Great for a special occasional meal!
Frankie as a venue is very lovely and inviting, we went on a Thursday and there weren't too many other groups in.
I was a little disappointed with the level of service because of this. Staff were nice however I didn't find them to be very attentive to our table, despite it seeming like a quiet night.
The food was nice, the only thing that I didn't overly rate was the hard shell crab, merely because we weren't aware of the correct way to eat it, we did ask staff how, however, didn't find their explanation of doing so to be helpful at all, so ended up just leaving it be as it was too difficult. Had we have known it was hard shell, we actually wouldn't have ordered it at all.
Overall we would return and recommend it to others but wouldn't order the crab and would hope that staff were just having an off night and will be more attentive next time we dine.
Fabulous food and cocktails . Great restaurant. Will definitely be back 😍
Great food and service. Recommend Frankie’s to others.
