I'm a big fan of Frankie & Benny's, I like the style of the restaurant and I like the menu. I popped in here after bowling with my 2 lads on Sunday and whilst the service was great and reasonably quick the quality of the food was really disappointing. My eldest son had pizza and whilst he said it was... More

I've always loved visiting Frankies and Bennys in Didsbury, but this particular time was outstanding and it's all down to our lovely waitress! Always offering to get us more drinks and checking that everything was up to scratch! I think her name was Victoria! So thank you for making myself and my family feel welcome and looked after! :)

Dessert was expensive for the size of portion, we shared a banoffee basket which was beautifully presented and tasted delicious but we expected more for £5.95! Drinks are refillable but it wasn't immediately obvious, our server told us it was. Coffee was nice and hot, I enjoyed the Latte but I am no connoisseur. Server was friendly but with too... More

After the starters they cleared the table and didn't replace the cutlery. They brought the mains and didn't even check. I was waiting around waving at waiters for a while trying to get a fork for my steak. By the time I got the fork the steak was already getting cold. But the taste didn't make up for it. It... More

Weirdly I have never liked eating at F&B's until last November 24th when we visited the Printworks restaurant. This meal was excellent with fabulous service and I changed my mind. Today we visited East Didsbury and had another great experience. The restaurant was heaving with family's just out the adjacent cinema so there was noise of excited children but it... More

Ordered Mozzarella Garlic Bread, which was nice, but at nearly a fiver should have been. Italian Meats pizza, (why such a poor range of pizza? most of them come with... More

The food is not the same as it used to be a few years ago. Tasted like processed or frozen food. Great service anyway.
