  • Good Food, Not So Good Service

    I went to Frankie & Johnnies's Steakhouse on 37th Street for NYC Restaurant Week. The food was very tasty and our server was attentive. My dissatisfaction was with the bus boys: the young man that brought back our food after it was wrapped up to go, just abruptly dropped our bag on our table, without saying a word and kept walking. When we got home and took out our to go containers, my husband realized that the three strips of steak that i put on his plate were not there.

    Dined on 2/24/2014
    The menu had more options then the other places during restaurant week was why I chose this place. My group tried everything on this menu and all was DELICIOUS. A bit salty for me since I'm used to no salt but none the less the food was FABULOUSLY cooked. The bread basket also had several options and this too was delicious. I wanted to ask for take-out just for the bread it was that good. I had a lovely time with friends and will definitely go again.

    We went to dinner for Restaurant Week. We had heard good things about Frankie and Johnny's other location in NJ so we wanted to try this one. We were not disappointed. We arrived early and were promptly seated. The wait staff was very attentive. The food arrived within a reasonable amount of time. Everything we ate was very good. There wasn't one thing that we didn't like. We would definitely go back again.

  • Lunch Restaurant Week Review
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 2/21/2014
    My brother and I went for lunch because it was restaurant week, it was very good! For a starter we both had the salad, somewhat boring, nothing too special. For the main course we both had the filet, it was very good with the sauce that was on it! The dessert might have been the best! It was a coffee gelato with chunks of chocolate pieces mixed in. VERY GOOD!!!

    This was a great dinner. I reserve my 5 stars for restaurants that are the top of the line. This was a great please to have dinner and hope to be back. The staff was particularly great. Always had water, bread, and they let us take our time ordering and didn't rush or delay. The food was great and the fluffer gelato was amazing. I would go back just for that!

    My wife and I ate here on Valentine's Day after looking for some great steak options in NYC; and absolutely made the right choice. From the moment we walked in, the service was excellent. Great demeanors by the entire staff from start to finish made the experience and price tag well worthwhile. Food wise everything was prepared perfectly and the menu options were broad enough for any taste. My wife got the surf and turf and I had the veal chop. We also shared a cold seafood plate as an appetizer that included clams, oysters, lump crab, shrimp, and lobster. I believe it was a Valentine's Day special only but it was one of the best and freshest seafood plates I've had anywhere. We will surely return next time we're in the city.

  • Overrated
    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 2/10/2014
    Husband and I went for dinner on our first night in NYC. We've visited the city many times and had some fabulous meals but sadly this wasn't one of them. The food was distinctly average. The steaks were just about ok, the fries were stale and burnt as were the mushrooms and onions. The service so understated it was brusque. We chose just a main meal each, no appetisers or dessert and just one glass of wine and beer. The bill came to over $165. What's more, they include service at 20%, then have the cheek to add tax on the total. Service should be optional and definitely not taxed. Very disappointing.

    The food was excellent but the restaurant could be stunning with a makeover of the interior and some new staff. Old jaded waiters. Also three hours after we dined open table reservation was cancelled, like a scam to not award points. One call the the restaurant quickly got that resolved, but shady.

    The food was excellent. We had pork chops which were prepared perfectly and filet chopped steak which was delicious. The classic salad was chopped and had a very good dressing. Did not care for the potato pancakes. They were ok but much different than expected. The fried zuchini was outstanding, bread very good and steak sauce worth purchasing to take home. We did not have desert but enjoyed specialty coffee. Very enjoyable experience.

    Found Frankie and Johnnies by accident one night. They fit us in without a reservation and treated us like we were their best customer. Our clients absolutely loved the ambiance. Food was very good with a varied selection of beef and fish. The wine list was reasonable with a varied selection. I would recommend Frankie and Johnnies to anyone who wants to have a great meal in a relaxed atmosphere.

    We had the pleasure of dining on a Friday night before the theatre. From the minute we were greeted and seated the service and ambiance was great. I would recommend the tomato and mozzarella salad to start. The freshest tomatoes we very had. The steaks were cooked to perfection. Our waiter Lazlo, the Captain and wit staff were terrific, they made us feel like regular customers and were so informative too. I would go back again and recommend to all our friends. This is a great Steak House in mid town.

    I found Frankie and Johnny's on the internet by luck, I was in town for a trade show and brought two business associates with me. All where pleased and full. We had porterhouse for three and there was nothing left but the bone. We had the vanilla and chocolate moose cake with some vanilla ice cream, it was one of the best pieces of cake I have ever had. BTW, I eat a lot of steak hoses and this is on par with the best of them.

    Four people had steaks - two filets and the rib eye for two - steaks were cooked perfectly, very tender and exceptionally tasty. Can't say the same for the mashed potatoes...a little mealy and thin. Salad was Ok - 90% ice berg lettuce with some cukes. Ambience was great though - nice small, local feel - saw a local celeb (Hubie Brown) eating next to us. A fun time, but for the price, would have expected better side dishes.

    We arrived early for our reservation and was seated promptly. Our waiter must have been wired for the pre-theatre crowd because he was eager to take our order and move us out. After a brusk exchange that we wanted a long and quiet evening, he settled down and was very accommodating. Cocktails arrived and were delicious - I ordered an Amarone from the wine list which I happy to see. Our meals were fine - even though the preparation of our steaks were reversed from our order. My wife's filet arrived medium and my filet arrived medium rare - the opposite of what we wanted. We didn't say anything - they were still delicious. Prices are what you would expect at a New York steakhouse.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2013

    Our College roommates and husbands were meeting in NYC for a reunion for 2 days. We made reservations at Frankie and Johnnie's but didn't know that there were two locations. When we got to the one location that we thought we were going to, they didn't have our reservation. It was 12 degrees in that night and blustery cold. We had to walk about another 15 blocks to get to the correct restaurant. But the hostess did call ahead to the other location to let them know that we were going to be late. The food was amazing. The place was extremely noisy and we had a difficult time having a conversation. The service was not really great, but they tried . All in all, I would recommend for the food, but ask to be put in a quieter corner!
