Service and cocktails were great. Food was not. Slow cooked pork Bao buns were so dry and hard it was like eating week old pork jerky. Disappointed that the chef had such little respect to actually plate and serve such a dish. The Peking duck wasn’t actually Peking duck, more stewed pulled duck. The steak dumplings were gummy as if straight out of a freezer packet and the fried calamari was so blonde, gummy, and under fried.

We had such a great lunch at Frankie on Saturday. We were greeted with a smile by a friendly staff member on arrival and they continued to go above and beyond to meet our needs throughout our visit. It’s always so nice to see staff who genuinely care about providing a great dining experience.

The food was impeccable, the share menu allows you to try different dishes. Everything we ordered just melted in our mouths. If only we could fit everything in!

The venue itself is stunning. Lovely light filled rooms and lots of space, meaning you’re not squashed up next to the table beside (ideal in our current environment)

Highly recommend - particularly the South East Side cocktail - yummo!

Thanks team, we will definitely be back soon

Frankie deserves more than 5 stars! The food is delicious, plentiful and presented perfectly, the venue is stunning, the cocktails are the best I’ve ever had in Geelong and made with so much care and thought and to top it off the service is so, so good! They went above and beyond and we felt very special and well looked after. Thank you!

The food and the service was amazing. My partner and I ordered 4 plates to share and could barely finish it all. It was delicious and awesome value for money.
The staff were very friendly and responsive and ready to help in any way.
We had an enjoyable evening and will definitely be coming back to Frankie.

We entertained our Melbourne friends on a Sunday night.

Their first time , not ours.

The whole process of booking and meal was seamless.

The food and service was as usual excellent. I am a coeliac, so my choices are limited, having said that the gluten free option are excellent.

My wife and friends enjoyed the sharing menu.

A very enjoyable night out.

Food was great - loved the pork belly Bao and the prawn dumplings! Unfortunately from the moment we were seated we were ignored and had to ask for everything (drinks, food, water) even though we were right next to the bar where all of the staff were (for some reason we were invisible!). To be fair to the staff they were very nice once we got their attention

Pretty good food and terrific service only tarnished by overly noisy ambience. Hard floors, walls & high ceilings in the (architecturally striking) restaurant means too much backgroun$ noise. Disregarding this small whinge it was very good.

Wait staff were friendly, nice and mostly quite attentive but whatever kind of system they had in place was not working very well. A fair few orders were mixed up with another table or wrong and we often had to ask multiple times for something after waiting long periods. I assume they may have been new staff with not much experience post covid etc. so we didn't mind too much. Food and drinks were yum, it would be nice if the menu more clearly stated different dietary requirements (e.g. vegan etc). And it would be preferable if the vego/vegan options were not cooked in the same oil as the meat. Overall a good experience though.

I was really looking forward to dinner at Frankie with friends, however I was so disappointed when I was told that the only coeliac friendly dishes was the tofu share dish or the curries. Meaning there really want a great deal of selection for me. I would love to try Frankie again if they we’re able to cater better for my dietary requirements.

Busy bar/restaurant that appears to a attract a young crowd. Staff, albeit friendly, are not well trained in hospo service, and food was average. Nice cocktails. Hoping this place can improve as its Has potential to be a nice addition to geelong’s up and coming food scene.

Amazing! Beautiful venue and delicious food. Service was amazing. Highly recommend!
Wasn't too loud at all and was spacious.
Ordered the Peking duck pancakes,
Korean fried chicken, pork belly bao buns and prawn and garlic dumplings. Shared between 2 people. Were very very full after finishing (almost) everything.

It was a very pleasant experience, I really enjoyed the decor. It was light and Sophisticated yet comfy! The food was amazing, the 5 spiced duck bao are a must, also had the flash fried calamari and massaman beef cheek which we couldn’t finish but took home, therefore the servings were perfectly matched to the price we paid per dish. Whilst I wasn’t able to drink, the waiter made me a delicious mocktail. The service was friendly, we were met with a smile and had great vibes from being there. Looking forward to going back and trying more on the menu!

Table service was good , friendly. Food was a little disappointing , crispy skin chicken " wasn't crispy ". Couldn't find the prawns in the chicken and prawn spring rolls and the bao buns were very dry. Th 3 items we ordered all came out at once instead of a staggered service , so we only had 1 x drink instead of 3 !!
