Diner Reviews
  • "The food and service are wonderful. A wonderful menu for anyone with varied tastes. They will adjust your order to fit your special diet needs."
    Dined on 8/31/2014
  • "It was a very busy holiday weekend the restaurant was full, which made the service was slow. On the plus side the food was very good. Our table had several pasta dishes all were very good, with the brick chicken being outstanding. For a downtown restaurant prices are very reasonable."
    Dined on 8/30/2014
  • "Tried the baked spaghetti this time, in lieu of my usual salad, which I love as an entree. It was fabulous so, nowt I"ll have to make a serious choice! My husband is stuck on the Chicken with arugla salad on top. Everything we've tried is wonderful. Love eating in the "outdoor" area...restful, quiet and expansive."

  • "not up to LEYE standards. very disappointing. wasn't busy enuf for how distracted the service was."
    Dined on 8/26/2014
  • "I picked this restaurant solely because of proximity to my hotel. I had fairly low expectations as it is located in a "mall" in the Blomingdale's building. However, I was very pleasantly surprised. The food and service were excellent and a good value for the Gold Coast area. I enjoyed it so much that I made a return visit later in my trip. Highly recommended."

  • "Great place after a long day of shopping. Wait Staff was responsive and professional, food was very good and everyone enjoyed their selection, from Pasta to Pizza to Seafood. Seating was comfortable and tables appropriately spaced. The decor was OK, not sure about the white plates with black writing on the walls. Better than just a mall restaurant."

  • "We received an email advertising promotion. Upon arrival at the restaurant, it applied to only a few items on the menu."
    Dined on 8/23/2014
  • "The brick oven lemon pancake and crisp bacon were just enough tart, sweet, and smokey to delight my palate. Frankie's is a great brunch alternative on weekends."
    Dined on 8/17/2014
  • "Service was lousy. Standing water on floor. Waiters made a lot of noise bussing tables."
    Dined on 8/16/2014
  • "I was in town and looking for an Italian restaurant on a Friday night. I reviewed Yelp for some options and because it was so last minute, not many of the options had vacancy. Frankie's was highly rated, like many others and seemed to be in a good spot right on N. Michigan; a short walk from where I was staying downtown. It turned out to be a mall, with Frankie's on the 5th floor; not exactly the ambiance I was looking for on nice summer night in downtown Chicago. It's mostly my fault for not reading more into it and figuring this out before making reservations. My group liked the food pretty well but the waiter didn't speak very good English. Made it difficult to understand some of the menu questions. In all a good place if you're shopping"

  • "Frankie's is a favorite and by the looks of it, it is becoming many people's favorite. I have taken to making a reservation just to make sure we get a table. Had the eggplant my last visit and it was fabulous!"
    Dined on 8/13/2014
  • "Always dependable. $10 bottle of wine on Tuesdays. Wait staff very friendly and knowledgeable."
    Dined on 8/5/2014
  • "Frankies is seldon crowded and the food/service is consistently good. A typical Lettuce Entertain You restaurant."
    Dined on 8/1/2014
  • "Took a young couple for dinner that had never been there-truly enjoyed!!!"
    Dined on 7/29/2014
  • "Great food and service every time. Convenient for neighbors and tourists. Wonderful place to relax."
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "Great place for a good low key Italian meal. It is also wonderful for weekend breakfast"
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "A great go-to spot that is great because you can eat "outside" in the 5th floor lobby area set up with awnings and table or inside in a more intimate atmosphere. It you like a quiet spot to get away from a hectic day or bustling shopping trip, this is a great hideaway, quite where you can listen to friends talk and share a great meal. Enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner here! This is our neighborhood gem with reasonable prices and good Italian food (generous portions, too!) but tourists will enjoy this get away to have a moment of down time. This restaurant is part of the Lettuce Entertain You group, so bring your card with you and accumulate points while you enjoy your meal!!"

  • "The food was great and the portions were more than adequate. Our server could have been a little bit more attentive."

  • "We love coming to Frankies. They have a nice varied menu and the food is always good. I highly recommend it."

  • "This is a nice little restaurant in the mall off the north end of the Magnificent Mile."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "The food was delicious. I ordered the Tri-colore Gnocchi and it was fabulous"
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "We had a very good lunch consisting of several entree salads."

  • "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
  • "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."
    Dined on 6/16/2014
  • "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
  • "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
  • "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
  • "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
  • "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. "

  • "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
  • "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?"
