Frank and Dino's
Chicken breast sautéed with capers in a light white wine and lemon butter sauce.
Penne alla Vodka
Penne pasta with prosciutto, sautéed onions, fresh plum tomatoes, hint of vodka and a light touch of cream.
Excellent service,delicious food served very timely. Fun atmosphere and nice bar. John,Matt and Austin are super knowledgeable about entree and cocktails. Great way to celebrate a birthday. Will be going back
We had a wonderful time! The food was amazing, the servers were friendly and knowledgeable, and the drinks were perfect! We can’t wait to go again!!
We were seated immediately; the waiter took our drink orders quickly - ordered soup and salad - both were out quickly. Ordered our entree - they were excellent. Meal and service were excellent. We have visited this restaurant half a dozen time over the last 3 months.
The food was amazing! Best Italian I’ve had! I loved the atmosphere! Cheesecake was lacking.
It was a wonderful evening with the live music and of course delicious food. The one thing that was off to me was how low the lighting was, which isn’t even a huge issue. I felt like I struggled to see my menu. Other than that, amazing!
I absolutely love this restaurant, the food and service is spectacular!
Ordered veal chop medium rare. Came out well done. After finally getting waiters attention he suggested I try something else. I just wanted the veal chop properly cooked. After a long wait, my four guests had finished their meals, the veal chop came back rare, cold red center. Flagged down waiter again and pointed out chefs second bad attempt at proper cooking and he suggested I should cut the center as it might be cooked more. Anyone should know in food service if it is rare on the outside edge, the center near bone will definitely be less cooked. I told him I would just eat the side items and take with me so I could cook it properly at home, especially as my guests had been finished a long time. There were only two fish choices, both salmon.
The salmon dish was only pan seared with too much salt and no other seasoning with a small side plate of Arugula with too little dressing. My daughters' pasta dishes were not even on par with Olive Garden for twice the price.
My final disappointment came when the waiter brought the check and said he had the manager take my meal off the tab. I told him the manager should have come to the table and check on the satisfaction of the second attempt. We had dessert, the tiramisu thankfully was the best dish of the meal. Management never approached our table to discuss the problem. If the management is not concerned about quality and customer satisfaction then it is easy to understand the staff would not either.
The quality of the flavors and preparation is not as it should be for the price of the meals.
Appetizer was over cooked. Entrees we’re just ok and very pricey. Music was great
Amazing dinner and the service was amazing as well.
Great, but I wish we had known it was brunch only through the afternoon.
The food was decent, but not worth the price. We ordered the penne alla vodka and a special they had at the time (linguine with shrimp and scallops in a garlic butter sauce). After waiting for over an hour for the food to come out, the special was served with spaghetti noodles rather than the linguine that the server stated. The ambiance was nice with a jazz player and romantic lighting. However, overall the experience wasn’t worth the time or money.
Food and service were both great. We enjoyed the live music on an Friday night. Would definitely go back
Our meals tasted really good when we finally got them. Service and the length it took to get our meals was not acceptable. Took a very long time. Then when we got our meals we had to wait another few minutes to get fresh Parmesan, which should be offered at any nice Italian restaurant.
At one point, we were all out of drinks including water!! Had to wait to even get water. At this point we will not return. And I was looking so forward to going to this restaurant
great food, great service, cool atmosphere and huge food portions
Authentic food, great atmosphere, great food. Priced too high, decent wine options. But overall great experience
The pasta was not fully cooked, it was hard and it was supposed to come with eggplant but barely had any, it was mostly pasta with marinara sauce, flavor was bland, not worth the price if that's how it actually comes. My fiancé's dish wasn't very good according to him, he stated it was very bland as well. Customer service was amazing, I had a very good server, Ryan was his name. He made me 2 different cocktails because I didn't like the first one, very much appreciated. Now when it was time to pay he gave us $34 over with the change, we tried to explain that he had given us more money than what we were supposed to get back, he said that's what the computer told him that was our change. We tried to explain the math on it but he just apologized. I wonder if the drawer came back short yesterday (1-11-2022)
I had a birthday brunch today at Frankie and Dino’s. What a disappointment. The omelets were overcooked (brown) and the potatoes and toast were cold to the touch when served. In addition, one of our meals came 10 minutes after the rest of the party was served. Today, F & D’s lost 4 customers who enjoy fine dining and, in the future, will enjoy it somewhere else.
Very poor service! Pasta was under cooked and sauce that came with clams was bland! Veal dish was a notch above average!
Very nice bar. No cocktail menu? It may be because the cocktails are all $18 each. And oh, if you get your martini “up”, it’s and extra $2. Same with a neat bourbon, an extra $2. This may be a NY thing. It’s not a KY thing. Just tell me what you charge, tell me it’s $20/drink and let me decide. Don’t slip it onto the ticket at the end. When the waiter asked if it was a special occasion, we disclosed that one of our guests had a birthday. We didn’t request a desert. We had a cake waiting at home. To our surprise, the waiter brought a tiramisu desert. The birthday girl doesn’t like tiramisu, so we boxed it up and took it home. When I got the bill, there you go a line item charging us for the tiramisu we didn’t ask for and didn’t want. What? The food was very mediocre and we left feeling fleeced. Oh, and $20 valet parking after tip. One of these negatives wouldn’t have been cause for this review, but the it was one thing after another that will make us one and done’s for this place.
Such an amazing experience!! Will definitely be back.
It took a while to get our food.
Everything was excellent. The food was excellent. The music was excellent. The drinks were excellent. The service? Excellent. I couldn’t have been more pleased with this as a first date location.
It was wonderful! Food was delicious, we tried multiple dishes and everything was fresh and yummy. The martini was perfection and the ambiance was welcome and fresh.
Food was mediocre at best. We were there on NYE. They had a musician that was awful. The food was bland. The menu is a complete overreach. Frank & Dinos should represent Italian American food and we’ll the music that goes with Frank & Dino. It was none of these things. Just ban underwhelming and disappointing experience.
Live music was ex Ellen!
Food and surroundings very nice. Good experience
Our first visit and on New Years Eve.
Michael, our server, was very attentive a his menu recommendations did not disappoint. Great wine list, wonderful ambiance and the pasta was delicious!
Will definitely be back.
Had a great first time here on NYE! Our server was very knowledgeable about the menu and helped us with our selections. Honestly the best pasta dish I’ve ever had. Will definitely be coming back!
We had an excellent cocktail and dinning experience on New Years Eve. Great music, service and ambience.
New Year’s Eve 2021
Excellent food! Everything from appetizers to dessert was amazing
Great New Year's dinner for the entire family, including the kids.
Pasta was closer to room temperature than warm. Definitely overpriced. Good wait staff. Unskilled hostess and welcome staff. Pretty sure they’ve never worked in the restaurant industry before.
Spectacular service, food incredible!!!
The cocktails, food, service and ambience made for a memorable New Years Eve dinner.
Excellent experience! The food and jazz music were outstanding!
Excellent restaurant for the Lexington market. Enjoyed the nightly special (lobster linguine). Delicious! Service was attentive but not solicitous.
I had some Christmas money and had never had veal. It was delicious. Brought my wife and son and best family friend. Great time.
Ravioli was delicious, penne alla was good but not anything special. We had banana cream pie and cheesecake-neither one was very good. The pie was covered with whipped cream on top of what was actually the Martine pie (maybe to cover up what looked to be not a good slice) and the cheesecake was gritty.
This was our third time at Frank and Dino's, this time for lunch instead of dinner. We had John as our server and he was outstanding. The food was great, as usual, and we enjoyed every minute we were there. Being an Italian New Yorker, I am so happy to have a delicious Italian restaurant in central Kentucky. We will be back again soon!
