    This was the first time for me at F&J. We went at the end of lunch, so there were very few people in the restaurant. Skipped the appetizer and went straight to the main course. Steak was cooked to perfection. Best garlic mash that I've had in a very long time. We ordered sauteed spinach, even though it wasn't on the menu. That was delicious as well. Even my gin martini was perfect. I will be back!

    1st of all, awesome limo service. Food was so good and in generous amount. We had tuna tartare & crab cakes for apps, so good i could eat it all myself. For mains i had the filet mignon with lobster combo, not on menu but just a bit more than the mignon + shrimp scampi. Lobster was so tender and decent sized. Filet mignon was not bad. Plus delicious au gratin potatoes. Very filling. My fiancé had the 16oz sirloin + mashed potatoes i think, basically it's massive and he said was cooked perfectly. Had the creme brûlée for dessert with coffee, it was good. We were in a food coma after, so we walked home. Great restaurant. The service was excellent every time.

    Frankie and Johnie are my new dining friends if I'm looking for great steak and lamb dishes. Conveniently located and the staff was very attentive. We had dinner on a Monday night and the restaurant wasn't crowed at 6:30 pm so I don't know how the servjce would be if the restaurant was crowed. However, our service was great.

    HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! Their Limousine picked us up from our hotel and brought us to the 37th Street location, which is in what used to be John Barrymore's townhouse- the dining room is in his old study and includes a beautiful working fireplace. The waiters were very attentive and friendly. The food was sensational- particularly the smoked salmon appetizer- but it was all very good. Prices were what you'd expect at any nice restaurant. As we were leaving, the Limo driver pointed out that, if you cross the street & look back at the building, you have a perfect view of the Empire State Building! The driver whisked us back to our hotel; we had a wonderful conversation with him on the way. A perfect end to our trip to the Big Apple!

    This was one of the best restaurants I have been to in a long time. The service was excellent. The waiter was hilarious and very engaging. The owner came down to talk to us and was very personable. The Chicken parmesean was excellent. They gave you a lot of food and i even had leftovers. I will definitely go back there again.

  • Went for NYC Restaurant week
    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 3/6/2014
    Went for NYC Restaurant week -- definitely was a good choice! We got the crab cakes and clam oreganata for appetizers, surf and turf with side orders of creamed spinach and garlic mashed potato, and key lime pie and bread pudding. Crab cakes were better than the clams (which were a little too salty), and the key lime pie was better than the bread pudding but overall all were good. The best was the steak which was absolutely delicious and the sides were as well. Overall food was very satisfying. The waitstaff seemed a little rushed and disorganized because it wasn't like 1 person was waiting on our table. We had multiple people come and ask us what we're ordering (literally like 4 people) so that took away from the experience a bit.

    The restaurant was very nice. The service was outstanding. We both had a crab cake for an appatizer, she had pork chops for dinner and I had a steak. We both had key lime pie for desert. We're from the Chesapeake Bay area, so you really have to do something special to make a good crab cake. They were OK, but nothing special. They did have a nice sauce for it. My wife's pork chops were delicious. My filet mignon was not so good. Filet should be butter, cut it with a fork. Mine was tough. Additionally, nothing was hot. Everything was warm, just not hot. So, overall it was a very nice dinner. The food was good, just not great and not hot. The service was outstanding everyone was top shelf and truly cared about their customers. J & D,

    Zagat's review does not do Frankie and Johnnie's justice. It is classic, not out of vogue. We went for a Restaurant Week dinner, which was superb--Surf and Turf, Crabcake and Key Lime pie for me and Surf and Turf , a wonderful spinach salad, and bread pudding for my husband. All were cooked perfectly, and portions size was normal, not small for RW. We loved sitting in John Barrymore's library near a fireplace. We loved the wood and cozy feel and individual rooms. The waiters were mature, professional and efficient and were friendly but not too familiar. Diners were lingering and making an evening of it. We did not feel the establishment was merely interested in turning tables rapidly. Everything was first-rate. They do not skimp. Go.

    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.

    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.

    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!!!
