I have been numerous times to Frankies and have always found it to be excellent. The food is excellent and there are numerous options for both veggies and meat eaters. They also cater very well for me as a coeliac and will happily prepare alternatives or offer suggestions of what I can eat.
The rack of lamb is amazing and the creme brulee was wonderful, but this is now off the dinner menu although it is available on the lunch menu and it has changed and wasnt that great. The wine guy is very knowledgeable and has always offered affordable options for great wine.
The bar area is great although they could do with losing the TV screens that went up for the world cup and are still there as they detract from the ambience of the bar. The piano player can be a bit hit and miss but he is good fun.
The staff are great : from the waiting staff to the door hosts to the manager. Special mention to Lesley who is a real asset to the restaurant. They are all helpful and enthusiastic and the training that they have received is fantastic. Very consistent.
My only gripe is that there isnt pork on the menu so no delicious hams to enjoy although the manager is trying to change this. I have yet to try them for their Friday brunch which is a new introduction.
This isnt the cheapest restaurant, but the setting is lovely, the private room if you want it is nice, the staff are great and the food is always wonderful.
