    Dined on 7/5/2014

    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "Wonderful experience. Highly recommended by my daughter and her husband (and 2 boys). We had a very nice first time experience."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "We had a very good lunch consisting of several entree salads."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "Frankie's is well known in the neighborhood and should not be missed by anyone shopping nearby, either lunch or dinner. Considering the menu their wine list might be on the expensive side but the food choices make up for that."
    Dined on 6/25/2014
  • "Every time I come here i go away happy. Excellent place."
    Dined on 6/24/2014
  • "We eat here often so we will probably go back but this time wasn't so good. Our waiter was indifferent. After I ordered the whitefish, he came back to say they were out of it. I ordered a pasta with lobster ($25) and there were 4 small pieces of lobster in it. I should have sent it back but didn't. When I mentioned it to the waiter, he said that's what it is. When we left, I talked to Alan, who is wonderful, the host and he said he would talk to the manager about it. So this time our meal wasn't as good as usual."
    Dined on 6/23/2014
  • "We had an excellent pizza and salad for lunch. The restaurant was not crowded so it was quiet and the service was excellent."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "We had dinner on a Monday evening. Noise level was fine. I had a caprese salad appetizer and salmon entree; he had the anti-pasta plate & spaghetti w/meatballs. The caprese salad was weird-no balsamic vinegar or basil. Tomatoes were very good, though. Salmon was well-prepared, but nothing special. My date found his entree acceptable, not great. Wine list not good. I was not much interested in the desserts. So skipped that, too. Waiter was good, attentive,not predatory. Not one of the better Lettuce installments. I'll return to try the pizza. Overall, not impressed, though. Osteria Via Stato is a far better choice. I still miss Scoozi."

  • "Frankie's is always a good, reliable place for good food and pleasant service. And they validate parking tickets for a $5 charge in the building garage if you arrive after five p.m."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "As usual the food was reliable and good. Service was fine albeit not as good as usual. We would return as we know days are as different as nights are long"
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "Ordered red wine got white, food was just passable, servers seem to be in a hurry to get it over with, Pizza was not cooked enuf, a bottle of cheese was broken and just barely cleaned up"
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "I called ahead because I saw reviews noting an outdoor eating area - whoever answered the phone confirmed that they had outdoor seating. In reality the outdoor area is simply tables in the common area of a shopping mall. Deceitful."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "Enjoyed our dining experience very much. Frankie's is a hidden gem"
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "Usually we have very good meals at Frankie's but they were off this time. We brought friends--so there were 6 of us. Very long wait for drinks and food and the food was not up to their usual standards. Short staffed? Too many tables still dining when we arrived? We will go again, but probably not for a larger group dinner. Any restaurant can have an off night--hope this is just such a rare event."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "Good food reasonably priced. The portions are large enough so that you can bring something home for the next day."
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "Frankie's is hidden on Michigan Avenue in the sleepy Bloomingdales building. It is my go to for last minute dinner plans. The food is solid and I haven't had to wait forever for a table. The deep dish cookie used to be phenomenal, but was a bit dry this past time, which was disappointing. They also got rid of my dumplings, but the gnocchi was a good replacement. The pizza was smaller and the crust was dry. Service was a bit slow/inattentive this time, but has been good in the past. Maybe it was an off night, so I'll give it another chance. Overall, it's a good spot for a shopping break."
    Dined on 6/3/2014
  • "Even though its in a vertical mall. The food is very good, reasonably priced and very good service. A great find."
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "Great, great great! Fabulous food and service. Wonderful experience."
    Dined on 6/1/2014
  • "My wine took about 15 min. to come. Son's pizza arrived 10 minutes before the rest of our food. He was almost done eating when we finally got our food. My husband discretely told the host & the waiter that it was my birthday. When we finished eating, the waiter asked if we wanted desert. We ordered one. The waiter dropped it off quickly without a candle. When my husband finally got the waiters attention, he acknowledged knowingly, disappeared, and then brought the check. He was told again it was my birthday. Instead of saying he had forgotten, and asking if we would want another complimentary dessert with a candle, or just comp the dessert we already had, he left quickly & brought tiramisu with a candle. we were already full. "
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "Don't know what's going on but had another bad experience here. 1. Reservation wasn't ready at 7. 2. My pasta entree did not come until my son already finished his meal so I ended up not eating my meal and had it packed to go. What's going on Frankie?"
    Dined on 5/30/2014
  • "We so much enjoyed our dinner. Two of us Chicken Limone which was so very good, the other had salmon which he said was delicious. We so enjoy dining at Frankie's and hope to dine there again in the near future."
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "We shared the pecan pancake and an omelet, with lots of good hot coffee. No problem with requests to have accompaniments on the side. Lovely Brunch, quiet enough for us to have a decent conversation."
    Dined on 5/25/2014
  • "Not as fulfilling a dinner as previous visits. Obviously the chef cares a great deal about the food. I saw him personally delivering dishes to other tables. Ours was less than stellar, not what I expected. I ordered the "lemon brick chicken" and my friend ordered the "chicken limone." Mine was barely completely done. Meaning I had to check the pieces I cut repeatedly to make sure they was completely cooked. Not much seasoning and not that different from my friend's entree, except his came with spinach and mushrooms on top, and mine with asparagus on the side. I didn't complain because what was I going to complain about--that it wasn't at all what I was expecting? "
    Dined on 5/22/2014
  • "Had a reservation and still had to wait 30 minutes for a table. Had to ask for the check 3 times as we gad somewhere to be at 9. Gnocchi was delicious. Pizza good too. "
    Dined on 5/20/2014
  • "The service was poor, the food was cold and overall not a good expereince. Very surprising because Letusentertain is an awesome group and I have never been dissapointed until now. Sorry but this one is one that I will not go back to. "
    Dined on 5/18/2014
  • "We've had brunch here twice now, and have been pleasantly surprised both times. The food is much better than we'd expected - much nicer than a run-of-the-mill usual brunch."
    Dined on 5/18/2014
  • "Abandoned by our waiter after the main course was cleared. Wanted coffee and dessert. Only explanation, "I'm busy". Spoke to the manager on our way out and got nothing but lip service. We have been to this restaurant 15-20 times. We expected better!!!!"
    Dined on 5/16/2014
  • "I have eaten at Frankies before and the food has always been great....as well as the service"
    Dined on 5/15/2014
  • "Frankie's is a great after shopping or, in this case, pre-theater early dinner."
    Dined on 5/14/2014
  • "We have been for lunch and dinner before but not brunch. We enjoyed the menu offerings and will be back again."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "Sunday evening dinner for two. Formulaic Italian menu resulting in mediocre Italian food with Michigan Avenue prices. Unless there are no alternatives, select a different Italian restaurant. Piccolo Sogno Due comes to mind."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "Noise level was acceptable this time because there was no music being piped under all the umbrellas on the mall patio. The music is not only not necessary, it's hard to take."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "My partner and I split a seafood salad to add to our entrees and was disappointed to find that the kitchen decided to cut the shrimp in half to make it appear that there were more on the plate. Kind of a cheap trick considering the price of the salad was more than half of the entrees. I had veal with prociutto and olives which was excellent. The waitress was wonderful, considering she was a working mother working on Mother's Day. There was an older couple seated at table next to us and the woman was "a handful" (to put it kindly). The waitress was accommodating and gracious even though she was being treated kind of rudely. Very much to her credit. I very much like Frankie's and will return when I'm in the neighborhood."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "We went to Frankie's for Mother's Day dinner and had a great experience! Food was great, service was great, and we would definitely return. As a very nice touch, they gave the moms at our table flowers and chocolate truffles."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "We have been to Frankie's a couple of times and the food is always good. I used a $25 off certificate and it seemed to have a negative effect on our server which would be my only gripe."
    Dined on 5/9/2014
  • "Took our five year old who is a restaurant pro and he was treated with respect as well as our whole table.. The service was great as well as the food. Would recommend and return"
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "A friend and I returned to Frankie's. They have good food, and it's conveniently located, plus the ambiance is very nice. I had my favorite - pizza with arugula and potatoes, and my friend had spaghetti and meatballs, which she enjoyed very much. For dessert we had the warm chocolate chip cookie with ice cream - and it was just as good as when we had it before! I highly recommend Frankie's."
