Our group of six ate at Frank's with mixed reviews. My husband really enjoyed his meal of Chicken Marsala with fresh mushrooms over angel hair pasta. My seafood gumbo was well named. I fished out two small crab leg shells and several small crushed shells from the gumbo. The gumbo was tasty, just look out for stray shells. Three of... More

Small little place with some decent food to chose from. Limited selection of beers but suitable. The food was good and the service was also. The atmosphere was old New Orleans and you are on a very active street. Good for people watching and just haveing a bite to eat. Nothing special but still enjoyable. The bathroom is very limited...

We waited over an hour for our food even after repeatedly questioning the server. Chicken picatta tasted like a box of salt was poured into the sauce and was not hot. I got their special - fish with shrimp creole - cold and fish was still raw. Not sure how long it takes to cook chicken and shrimp but definitely... More

WOW!!! Happy, Happy, Happy!!! Delicious Italian dinner. Muffuletta as big as the plate, and thick, loaded with delicious meats and olive salad. Raviolis with real ricotta cheese and meatballs like nobody else's business! Service is the best! Kathy took great care us. This has just made my personal favorites list next time I visit New Orleans, and I come here... More

As we ate our lunch, the manager had a table in the dining room where he was working on payroll for his employees. He would loudly call for an employee to come to this table and he would be rude and insulting to them. Question their time card and proceed to tell them what he was going to pay them,... More

We, basically, stumbled on this restaurant while walking around looking for a moderately priced place to eat with some decent food. We stopped in on a Wednesday night and the minute we walked in, we were greeted by our waitress like we had been coming there for years which made us feel at home instantly. We were seated at a...

We went to Frank's and had the special, which included snapper, crawfish and pasta. It was delicious! Kathy, our server, was so much fun! My husband nicknamed her, "The Wizard," as in "The Wizard of Oz." We finished our meal with the 3 desserts she recommended, (for 6 of us), and I have never tasted anything so good!! Homemade cannoli,... More

We stopped in at Frank's after wandering the streets for a couple of hours looking for a quick meal. The sprucer out the front said all the right things so in we went. A quaint small restaurant with great friendly service. We ordered a couple of share plates, shrimp, calamari and a seafood pasta. All meals were fresh and tasty,... More

Staying in French Quarter

Neighbourhood Profile
French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port of call for folks in search of a good time and a great story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
