Great Neighborhood Italian Spot
I love going to Frankie's - it's conveniently located, has excellent food for the price, a good wine selection (also excellent for the price), and is a great place to catch up with friends and family. Looking forward to my next visit!

Great salad, pasta, pizza
This was my second time at Frankie's and I was not disappointed. My daughter and I took my niece to Chicago for her birthday. We chose Frankie's for her birthday dinner and all ate way too much, but it was sooo good. The service was also wonderful. We told the waiter it was my niece's birthday, and he bought her dessert. What a perfect evening!

Frankie's is always a must when we visit the city. Never disappointing!

Probably because it's "too close," and high (Floor 5) in the Bloomie's mall, neighbors tend to forget about Frankie's. But we had a coupon and were so pleased to be back. Our waiter, Ash, was the best--I usually don't appreciate the list of specials, but he waited until we read the menu, then came by with the specials and his enthusiastic descriptions hit the spot! During the meal, he stopped by but I always had the feeling he was waiting for the opportunity to "interrupt." These days, most waiters we experience just arrive at the table, don't realize there's a conversation going. The food was delicious: we shared a seafood salad and the special pasta ("sold" by Ash) and even ordered his recommended dessert. A wonderful experience!

Frankies Great Mag Mile eatery
I eat here at least once a month and love the management, staff and the great food and ambiance. Highly recommend if your shopping on Michigan Avenue or in the Gold Coast.

Great Service and Yummy Food
We told our waitress we had theatre tickets and she went into action. The appetizer of mozzarella and beets made a great start. Our main courses, Veal Piccata and delicious halibut with a simple lemon butter sauce, were satisfying and well prepared. The caramel gelato was just so-so. The highlight for us was that the service was so good we could take a leisurely walk to the theatre. We'll return...this was a nice experience.

Great Casual Eatery
I hosted my college aged children and their friends here for dinner and it was perfect. Monday and Tuesdays they have a special on their own wine for $10 a bottle-unbeatable! And it was a very good wine. Several of us had their entree salads and were all pleased; lemon chicken was a huge portion and cooked in oil for a dairy intolerance. Service was just right, ambiance is that of a Italian family restaurant. Dependably good Lettuce Entertain You eatery. Good food, great price,

Secret Michigan ave night time gem
This indoor patio in 900 Michigan ave mall was great on a busy Friday night with our teens. Food was great and server friendly. Quiet mall as stores had closed. Quick service and special requests not an issue.

One of my spots-- consistently good food, reasonable prices and a varied menu. Half priced wine specials every Monday & Tuesday!

Great Pizza on Michigan Ave
Though unassuming inside the mall, Frankie's is a great place to go for Pizza and more. I recommend the Spinach Pizza and the Seafood Salad. The cookies and desserts are not too shabby as well. If you go, ask to sit in Nate's section, great spirit and know's whats best for your taste buds.
7/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
We thoroughly enjoyed our meal. The chicken limon was delicious, melted in the mouth. The spaghetti and meat balls was really good, al dente and great texture to the meatballs. Some interesting choices on the menu, such as the seafood salad. We liked the basic
recipes we had, served up perfectly. And the waiter was the best! And the special cookie with gelato was a great topper off!
7/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Service was excellent and attentive. Many great choices of fresh menu items and specials. Found Frankie's to be the best meal we had during the weekend get away. A great value onside ring the price of other places we dined over the weekend. Frankie's will always be a top choice for consideration when back in the area.

My favorite Italian restaurant!!!
Frankie's is my go to restaurant. I am there frequently as I love the food. There are so many choices, from their specials and the menu. Some of my favorites are the salmon piccata, the chicken milianase, the spagetti carbonara which is excellent. I also love the pizza's. Frankie's has my 12 yr. old grandson eating the adult food since he has been 8. He loves the salmon and chicken mainly. The service is also great. The staff are so friendly. They make one feel so comfortable. For me it has become home.
8/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Not hip but reliable. Good menu reasonably priced. Able to have a conversation. We go often

Great food, great host
There was a private party in the main rest. Ken, the host, made sure we were seated at our reservation time. Ken was very friendly & professional, even though he was busy. As usual, the food was great.

Our first time at this restaurant. The food was enjoyable and our server terrific. We asked for a quiet table and that's what we had.

A real find
We went on the reviews in Open Table and were not disappointed. The Seafood Salad was fantastic and the Mushroom Pizza was perfect. The bread was even great. It puts you off when you find that it is on the 5th floor of the mall but it was clear the locals knew it was there and enjoyed it tremendously . We would gladly go back.

Great food (all 6 dinners were very good) and great mixed drinks, excellent service. Reservations were prompt. No wait time our table was ready when we arrived, plus restaurant was busy when we arrived.

We really loved Frankies. The food was outstanding, our waitress was totally cute and European, had excellent suggestions and was overall pleasant to spend the evening with. It has a fun location in 900N, and the restaurant is so cute with plates signed by past diners all over the walls. Highly recommended!
9/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
My husband & I thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at Frankie's. . Regarding the ambience, the restaurant is in a mall, but it was very pleasant. We were seated "outside," which was really indoors, but just outside the windows of the restaurant. There they have tables with large potted plants between us and the crowds, which was nice. It was attractive, quite pleasant, and surprisingly not noisy for a mall. The service was attentive, and the food was excellent. We were very pleased with our meal, and we are sure to go back.
10/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Have always had great food and service at a good price at Frankie's. Love their pizza, pastas and salads. Nice casual environment.

carb loading before the marathon
In town for the Chicago Marathon and did not know where to eat. Started searching the web and you can find anything. Narrowed the search to Trip Advisor and Frankie's got great reviews. We got on Open Table and were lucky enough to get a reservation for Saturday night. Do not be put off that it is on level 5 in a shopping mall. The restaurant is tucked away in a corner and you forget where you are. The menu is great, the food is wonderful and they have amzing cookies for dessert.

Tastey Pizza on Michigan Avenue
We had an easy, casual meal here. The Rita d Pizza - ricotta, asparagus, housemade mozzarella, parmesan, egg and truffle oil - was delicious with a thin chewy crust. Broccolini side was also good, crunchy and a large servicing. Others in my party enjoyed the Don Pizza and a chicken scaloppini dish. Service was quick and friendly.

Yummy food, weird service order
The food was delicious and the staff super friendly but the food was served piecemeal. We had four diners and two of us got our entrees when the third person got his salad and the fourth person got her side but no entree. Then the salad guy got his entree and the fourth person still had only her side. The first two people were half done with their entrees by the time the fourth person was served her entree. I must say this is NOT typical of this restaurant. I eat there at least once a week and have never had this happen before. We all ate from each others' plates so no one went hungry and we still had fun, but it was not an optimal night. On the plus side, we sat and talked long past closing time and no one chased us out.
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food is reliable and lots of choices, well priced.

Frankie's in Chicago
Found this in Google Maps looking for some place informal, not too expensive, but good food--- it was all of that and more. Excellent food and the house wine was on such a bottle special price that I couldn't refuse! What helped make the experience so much fun was that when I left, I had the waitress offer the half-bottle left to what looked like an office group and their response make this feel like a small neighborhood "family" kind of Italian restaurant. I would visit again if/when I get back to Chicago.

Breakfast is great!
If you are going to do some shopping on the weekends on Michigan Avenue, you might want to start the morning with a great breakfast that is now being offered at Frankie's. The menu items include a nice variety and the service was great!
10/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Wonderful food, service and great value for the price. Convenient in Gold Coast Bloomingdale's building. A fun place! Great food.
11/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Had a few small plates and some wine saturday night. Veal meatballs were outstanding we also had the antipasto for two which was also very good. We shared a small pizza which was also good. the waitress was a little ditsy but nice she forgot a salad we ordered but we were ok without it. Kind of a weird setting in a 6 story mall which is totally closed at 8pm but you can still procede up to restaurant. I liked the place it was good and not really crowded like all other places in area on a saturday night.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
$10.00 bottles of wine on Monday
Can't beat it! Wonderful and reasonably priced entrees. The Lettuce Entertain You Restaurants are the best!

Highly recommend Frankie's for breakfast. The oven baked pancake was delish - light and flavorful. My husband had the Eggs Diavola - a nice spicey way to start the day. The garlic toast that came with this was out of this world. Great service, our coffee cups were rarely empty. Can't wait to go back!
