Frank's Oyster House & Champagne Parlor
We really enjoyed our first visit here. The waiter was personable and knowledgeable. The atmosphere had a relaxed elegance and they have several comfy booths, which I love. The oysters were AMAZING!!!
It was wonderful! The waitstaff is attentive enough to fulfill our needs without hovering.
Okay, the oyster are why you should come here. Gorgeous presentation. Perfect oysters. Nice accompaniments (want the lemon ice!). I had clams as an entree. They were good. Fried chicken dinners were huge. Crab wraps had a nice mound of crab, but mainly body meat. Desserts were a bit dull and the six of us did not finish the two we ordered. Oh, yes, the cocktails do not disappoint.
Wonderful restaurant with friendly and professional wait staff. Food quality outstanding with very fresh and fine oysters on the half shell and a top notch variety of other fish and non-fish dishes. Only sour note was a seemingly indifferent and detached host at the front desk, who also seemed unwilling to even make eye contact. Perhaps it was just an off night for him.
My guy and I went to dinner and had 36 (yes 36) oysters that night, plus some apps. Every single one was delicious. We also had the po' boy sliders, prawns on plantains, Bibb lettuce salad, and cheddar biscuits (small plates) and they were also fabulous. We sat in the bar area on one of their couches and enjoyed our meal and the very unique decor (our favorite were the white leather bar stools). Really great place for a date or a dinner with friends.
Small plate? How about extra small plate of Fried oysters (3)?
?170 for 1 small appetizers, 1 doz amazing oysters on the half shell, 2 small plates, 4 drinks 170? Good but small portions and overpriced. We had to order a plate of fries so we wouldn’t leave hungry
We love Frank's Sunday brunch. On Easter each of us (6) had outstanding meals. My eggs Benedict with tomato and avocado was the best I've ever had. The service as great - as usual.
Unfortunately, service was slow, I think because the kitchen was slow. Food was ok but unremarkable. My cod had a gigantic dollop of aioli which was just wrong on white fish, almost felt like they were trying to hide something. The SRW menu didn’t match their regular menu exactly, prob to save money. Just felt tacky. Here’s your chance to win new diners, you should put your best foot forward. All in all lacked finesse, and that is what I was expecting for the price and marketing. I wanted to love this place but was disappointed. Might try brunch to see if that is their forte.
We had a great experience celebrating a 40th bday! All 6 of us enjoyed the service and food! We look forward to returning soon.
3rd visit for Brunch, easy to make a reservation or get a table at walk in. Food plentiful and Delicious
Very good food and very good service in a restaurant where one doesn't have to shout to be heard. I'll look forward to going again.
We went for a late lunch and it was awesome! We all decided on the Oyster Po'Boy and it was excellent. Just the right amount of spicyness and very nice oysters. It came with a nice lightly dressed salad, and we ordered some fries to share. A perfect lunch.
We enjoyed the baked oysters that paired perfectly with the rosè champagne. My only suggestion would be to add a gluten free bun for the hamburger.
My husband and I love Frank's, it's a little on the pricey end but so worth it. The food is absolutely delicious neither of us have ever had anything we didn't love.
the only thing was that the music played was too jazzy and loud - made me want to eat faster but otherwise everything was perfect and we will definitely be back
Exceeded expectations across the board. Doubled down on chicken and waffles after round 1.
good food, good value
Four yummy breakfasts plus leftovers. A casual comfortable restaurant.
Great feel to this little but mighty neighborhood place. I'm looking forward to my next visit!
Had a great brunch at Franks. We have eaten at Franks many times and always have had a great experience. Featured by us before all UW Football and many UW Basketball games.
I love this place. Food is yummy, cocktails are great, and atmosphere is unique for a neighborhood location. I’ve been many times, and it never fails to make me happy!
The service was great, and the restaurant was super cute. We went there for Sunday Brunch and were a little disappointed. I ordered the huevos rancheros and my boyfriend ordered the Chilaquiles Verdes. Both were just okay. They were a little bland and left a lot to be desired. We heard such good reviews about the place we will try again to make sure it wasn't a one off but we were a little disappointed.
Love this little neighborhood spot, always does a great business and they offer a nice mix of things on their menu. We're big fans of the small plates, which is an even better deal during happy hour.
Delicious neighborhood treasure! The oysters are fantastic as are the rest of the small bites. The three of us shared many small plates and had a wonderful evening!
New Years Eve
I am a vegetarian and went with my son who had recommended the restaurant. The chef was able to make my meal entirely veggie. Cooked up some assorted vegetables with potatoes and avocado. I was really happy with my meal and grateful that they were able to accommodate me. I would like to see one or two vegetarian options on the menu so that there would be less of a fuss in ordering but the food was really good and worth the price.
Great food, not-so-great service. We arrived on time for our reservation and were seated right away, but then waited 28 minutes for our drinks--two beers and a cocktail. We had to wait long periods of time between seeing our server, and even had to flag down other servers to get someone's attention. Our oysters were dumped on the table with little description, and mine were gritty. But the rest of the food was excellent--mine was one of the best burgers I've had in a long time. So a bit disappointing but hopefully we'll try again.
I had a great experience. Great food and fun atmosphere! I highly recommend!
Always delicious and served with a down to earth style. The brunch menu is terrific. Lots of meat but a few veggie items and adaptations are available. Try the zeppoli (fried donuts) to share.
We started with oysters and they were the most delicious I can remember having. Really loved them. All our meals were delicious and our whole party was happy with what they ordered.
The oysters are great. Service could have been better - for instance, I received my cocktail - ordered when first seated, during my second course. However, we were there on a Saturday so perhaps this should be expected. We loved the oysters and ordered a few small plates. Warning: small plate - means really small - not enough to two people to each have a bite. In the end, we spent $180 for a two person dinner but don't feel we had the quality of experience I'd expect for this amount.
This is a monthly staple in our dining rotation. The food is always great and it’s quiet enough to have a conversation without yelling. I recommend chicken and waffles or the market Mac and cheese. Always a nice dinner.
Came here for Seattle Restaurant week and had a better-than-expected meal. The highlights were the chicken 'n waffles and the cocktails. I had one called Franks Party Punch (or something like that). The chicken was perfectly fried and tasty....and the cocktail was totally delightful.
Looking forward to coming for another fantastic meal.
This is a very special place. The oyster's are always fresh and served on ice blocks.
We try to go often!
I went to Frank’s tonight for their wonderful fried chicken.
I also love their oysters on the half shell and love the presentation on blocks of ice.
I am from the South and don’t get this brown gravy thing in Seattle! So asked for it to not be on the plate , came out under the chicks so sent it back.
This has been my 4 th visit since April.
Food consistently good , different server tonight and I’m sure if that was the problem or kitchen .
So my recommendation is get no gravy or on the side it’s a large portion and nothing worse than messing up your next snack cause the chicken is not crisp from gravy!!!
Went for dinner, specifically for the oysters. Got there a little before hh ended and tried a few things off each menu. The mini tacos and sliders are cute, the poutine has good flavor although lacks sizable curds. Oysters were good and fresh, they also have a good selection of other preparations besides raw. The red curry clams are good though would pair better if there was like a bowl of jasmine rice. The lobster rolls were a bit too expensive for the size. The banana split and cracker jack sundae are both fantastic desserts and a nice ending to an enjoyable experience.
We love Frank's. Just wish they had the oyster sliders past happy hour. We never can get there soon enough and they are my favorite! 😊
It was my first visit - I loved it! Great brunch menu. I can't wait to go back for dinner.
Food was exceptional. Oysters from multiple different sources enabling a wide tasting platter. Small-sized portions with excellent flavor and the wine list was extensive . Great dinner topped off with a fine dessert. Definitely recommend.
Our server was extremely rude and dismissive regarding a severe allergy that one of our friends had. Best part of this restaurant is the oysters otherwise we wouldn't be coming back anymore.
