    Pork Chop was tender. The NY Strip and the Fillet medallion were both perfectly prepared. Nothing fancy, just good solid preparation for a satisfying meal. We went for restaurant week so the portions are smaller than standard which was actually perfect. We may have to share the entree if we order a regular sized steak.

    A Friday night during restaurant week, maybe that's was the reason everything was off. Host was walking us to our table,saw friends at the bar and stopped to have a conversation,not a hello but a conversation.Hostess had to get him from the bar to seat us and it continued downhill from that point on.The drink order wrong.The food order wrong.I'll try again but not on a Friday night during restaurant week.

    My mother has bad knees. Even though this ResturAnt does have stairs with the main dinning room upstairs they were kind and disgreet. They quickly made a nice table downstairs for mom, girlfriend and myself. Our waitor and his assistant were beyond funny, kind and went out of their way to make my Gf a hot chocolate. Doesn't sound like a tall order but it made her night. We will come back again!

    Appetizer: Bacon was simple; just two slabs of bacon Entree: Filet medallions were Ok. I would expect better from filet. Definitely over-cooked. They should let you choose how you want it cooked. Also, they serve the filet with mashed potatoes and the strip steak with fries and don't allow substitutions. When you order a steak, restaurant week menu or not, you should be able to pick a side that you want. Dessert: Ice cream was just two scoops of ice cream in a bowl. Good wine list

    My husband and I had never been here, so thought we'd give it a try for Restaurant Week on a Wednesday night. We both had same thing: their Frankie & Johnnie's chopped salad (nothing to write home about), a delicious 10 oz NY strip which was perfectly cooked. (it came with VERY overly salted fries), and a nice rice pudding. From the moment we sat down, the waitress was all over us. As soon as she brought us drinks, she wanted to take our order....told her we wanted to wait a little bit, she was not happy. 5 mins. later she was back. As soon as we were done with one course, the plates were taken away and the next course was presented. I know it's Restaurant Week, but how rushed do we have to be. We were out in UNDER one hour.

    The special restaurant week lunch menu was terrible. My friend and I ordered from the regular menu and the meal was expensive and just okay! NEVER AGAIN!!! We had been there for a restaurant week dinner previously and recalled that it had been very good. The restaurant was empty and I certainly understand why!!! Worst restaurant week lunch I have ever had!!

    We have dined at different times of the day and have always been pleased with the menu selection, even during restaurant week. The selections are indicative of their quality of food and presentation. The selections of wines have a varied price range for the different budgets. The ambiance is open and spacious, yet casual dressy. The large windows and stained glass are beautiful. Waitstaff is very friendly and attentive. You can't go wrong here for any occasion.

    Had pleasant time on 11/02. Returned on 11/09 and had disappointing experience: waiter not savvy about menu; slow food delivery; salad needed more dressing (one portion dry); glass of wine spilled on one guest so they did not charge for 3 coffees and a dessert....nothing about dry cleaning costs. Not likely to return.

    Don't expect a first class steak at the Rye iteration of Frankie & Johnnie's. The ribeye was cooked to order but was thin, chewy and actually hard and inedible in spots. The service was disinterested and brought one member of my party the wrong main course. The server's English was weak and at times, indecipherable. At the price, I deserved better and so do you. To be fair, others in my party seemed content with their meals and I did enjoy the crabmeat cocktail, the creamed spinach and the pommes frites.

    Having lunch at Frankie & Johnnie's was so pleasant. Not only was it nice and bright inside due to the big view window in front, but the beautiful stain glass window in the back was so beautifully colorful that we never noticed it at night dining there. The lunch menu offered a nice variety and a prix fixe which my husband loved. The food was prepared to perfection as requested. The wait staff was very attentive and very accommodating as we wanted a taste of a couple of wines before ordering glasses of.

    Really wonderful restaurant that seems to do everything right. Beautiful interior with tables far enough from each other you can talk and hear. Service excellent. The dry aged filet was grilled to perfection and the baked potato was just like I would do it myself. Staff were not intrusive. Highly recommended and excellent value.

    Stopped in for a late night dinner after a long road trip. We sat at the bar and the service was excellent (hostess, bartender, server). Food was perfectly cooked and excellent. Only negative was a fairly-drunk man at the bar who was ranting (bragging) to 2 Chinese "clients" and he must have loudly dropped the "F-bomb" 50 times. Manager definitely could hear him and said nothing. Not impressed.

    Food was very good but way too expensive. I had the veal chop and my husband had the filet mignon. Both were a bit overcooked but tasty nonetheless. The service was fine although we were the only patrons, as we were there early on a Sunday evening.

    This is my daughters favorite local restaurant. We generally come for special occasions. The food was very good (not great) the service was decent but overall our family was very disappointed . We felt rushed. The food was served much too quickly. We were in an out in about an hour. We went elsewhere for dessert.

    As far as steak houses go this wouldn't rank among the top I've gone to - for reference, the top ones in my opinion are STK, BLT, and Strip House. The appetizers were delicious - my table had French onion soup, crab meat, and lobster bisque - and the creamed spinach, au gratin potatoes, and truffle fries were also tasty. The main courses were just bad. My filet mignon was rather bland and my husband's Dover sole, something we both get rather frequently from many different restaurants, was down right terrible. It was fishy and slimy, and unfortunately cost us a whopping $60, which we didn't know in advance as it was listed as a special with no price - by far the most expensive piece of sole we've ever gotten and also the worst.

    I wouldn't be in a rush back here. I had heard good things about the place so I brought my wife here to celebrate her recent promotion. The interior could've used some updating with worn carpeting and just an underwhelming feeling knowing that it was fairly expensive steakhouse. The server brought over a basket of bread with 3-4 different selections of breads and every one of them was stale. My wife's wine had cork in the glass and when the waiter replaced it with another glass, we found more cork. I ordered the 12 oz Filet Mignon medium rare and it came out medium well. Her 8 oz Filet Mignon was ordered medium and came out rare. I must say though, although neither came out as requested, they were still very good steaks.

    My girlfriend and I have now made Frankie's our weekday date night go-to place. There steak is dead on excellent. The quality never varies. My girlfriend who is a big fish person is a convert. She loves their filet and I the rib eye. Service is always excellent. I have tried all the other steakhouses in Westchester numerous times and as a friend of mine said if it is steak in Westchester, Frankie's is the best.

    We have eaten at all of the big steal houses in the city, long island, and a few in westchester county but this one is a find. The steak was excellent, great looking restaurant, attractive crowd, very good service. Friendly hostess'. A little pricey but you get what you pay for. The steak was tasty, tender and perfectly cooked. The only recommendation I would make to the restaurant is the desert menu is a little weak. If you enjoy a good steak this restaurant is a must.

    I love steak. I have been going back and forth between Frankie and Johnnie's and BLT (I have tried every other steakhouse in Westchester and all the top ones in the city). While BLT can be amazing and the ambiance wonderful it can be hit or miss; great or not good. F & J's is consistently excellent. The service is always wonderful, the staff accommodating and the old bank vibe is cool. I had one of the best rib eye's I have ever had there on my last visit. Their fish, salads, sides, deserts are all great too.

    Not my first time to F&J b/c the food is always good. Basically a NYC steakhouse out in the burbs, but it has more of a town feel, not a stuffy feel, so good for a date, the guys, or the whole family. This time, though, my table was wobbly and couldn't be fixed with a sugar packet b/c it wasn't the footing that was bad--it as the pole. Unacceptable for a steakhouse of this calibre to have wobbly tables! But putting that aside, we were very happy with our meal and the service. I'll go back...but I'll refuse to sit at that table.
