Very convenient as it was located directly across the street from my hotel. With reservation we were seated immediately. There were several specials and ordering was very easy. Octopus appetizer was fabulous. I ordered the Veal Porterhouse, which was absolutely delicious. My wife went with the aged Ribeye, which was also outstanding. Wonderful evening spent for dinner with Frankie and Johnnie's.

The dinner was very good a super steak for us and the burgers for the children. The check was not so good but we are in US it is quite a normal way, around 75$ each for one main course.

Overall a great dining experience! Food was top notch and staff were nothing short of professional. A bit pricey but locally comparable, however, well worth the money. Would have liked to see a stricter dress code policy enforced at 7:00 on a Saturday night. I understand formal dress is a thing of the past but a restaurant of this caliber should require at least business casual.

We dine here about once a year. This visit my date had clams casino to start and sea bass. She enjoyed both thoroughly. I had Caesar salad and a strip steak. Quite frankly, there is nothing special (or wrong) with the caesar salad here; however, the steak was perfectly prepared as was our asparagus side with hollandaise. The wine program here is really good . . . not overwhelming, just plenty of great options including both large format and half bottles. Dessert and after dinner drinks were a highlight.

To start..this place is awesome! My wife and I were in town to see Elton John and stayed across the street from Frankie & Johnnie's. The service by Spiro and a gentleman who filled in for him for a bit (Didn't get his name but he told us he was originally form Mexico) was superb. They were charming and conversational without interfering. Truly added to our enjoyment.
The drinks were delicious. Then, the food started to come. Wow! Oysters Rockefeller were the best I have ever had and I live by the ocean and order them often. Crab cake was uniquely prepared and off the charts delicious.
Steak sandwich and homemade fries were perfect. Lobster ravioli could not have been better. The ambiance was so nice. We were going to try to get there for a night cap, but the concert was a bit longer than we had thought it would. A++++

I have been here a few times before and enjoyed it. This time? Utterly unremarkable food. And terrible value. I wish I had gone to the Benjamin...which does this way better. Nice old school place...but clearly a lot of fierce competition

Stopped at the bar on Monday February 18th. Spiero (spelling ?) was bartending.

Well suffice it to say my friend and I had a wonderful time and lunch. Spiero was awesome.

We had such a good time, we decided to make dinner reservations and brought the rest of our group with us on Friday the 22nd. Again, we had an amazing time and meal! Spiero was outstanding.

Our group of 4 gals, meet every year, the same week, (President’s Week) for our “Annual Broadway Week”.

We will be back next year for sure
Thanks for a wonderful experience
Thanks again to Spiero!!

This was the first time we ate at this steak house as we typically do not go to steak houses because I am not a steak eater but my wife is. We found the atmosphere very cozy and comfortable, the service excellent and the food outstanding. We started with an seafood appetizer for two consisting of shrimp scampi, crab cakes and clams casino. It was very flavorful and delicious. I had the Chilean Sea Bass which was also delicious prepared simply and in a wonderful sauce. My wife had her favorite, a rib eye steak which she said was amazing and cooked to perfection. Overall an excellent e perience.

Went for Winter Restaurant Week with my girlfriend for dinner. We had the crabcakes as a starter and it was ok at best. We both ordered the Surf and Turf and the steak came out perfect. The shrimp was amazing, as well as the side of broccoli we ordered. For dessert, I had the Key Lime Pie and my girlfriend had the Gelato. Both were really good. I was pleased overall with my experience. We plan on coming back soon.

Fantastic Friday night in NYC!
We started with a fabulous bottle of King Estate Willamette Valley pinot noir.
My crab cake appetizer w/ potato crust was amazing! My wife’s salad was fresh and crisp.
The porterhouse steak for 2 was cooked to perfection and flavorful. Sides of lyonnaise potatoes and mushrooms were delicious.
Awesome service from the very personable Spiro!
Can’t wait for our next visit
