My husband and I were in NYC for a show and decided to go to dinner beforehand and the restaurant was across the street from our hotel. The staff was attentive and the food was amazing. The atmosphere was was perfect for a quiet and romantic dinner. We will definitely go back next time we are in the area.

The food at Frankie & Johnnie‘s Steakhouse was amazing. There were enough joices for everyone, even if you wouldn’t want meat. We took a plate for two (Porterhouse) and three side dishes, which was a lot! We couldn‘t eat it all, but only because it was too much. It was really delicious. Just prepare yourself for a „bigger“ receipt. But it was worth it!

Overall good dining experience. Lobster ravioli was good. Filet medium was over cooked to well done. Cosmos were delicious. The serving staff could be more friendly. We would give them another try.

Our waiter, Dan, was inattentive and unpleasant. No salt on the table, no pepper for the entree, ordered a second drink which never came, we were unable to order dessert because he never came back to the table and we had a show to catch. Another server brought us our check.

The food was delicious but very expensive for what we got and how it was served. Big disappointment.

Food was excellent. Otherwise the steak menu was limited compared to other steakhouse restaurants.
Also I noticed there was no special was given which was very odd.

We were seated immediately. Server was efficient and the food was wonderful! A little strange that we were not offered dessert. Just coffee. When asked, the server rattled off a few items that made it seem that they were not appetizing. We then asked for another item we found on the online menu and was told that he wasn’t sure it was available. He found that it was and we then enjoyed it immensely. The cynic in me feels that the server wanted to turn over our table for the next client and didn’t want us to linger over dessert. Although we absolutely did not feel rushed through the meal. The prices are high. But the food was perfect. Exactly as we had hoped.

They need more staff. Honestly service was horrible. I had to force them to take my order. Portion size was small and i would not go back. I go to many ny steak house. Food was good just not worth the price.

We were in NY for the first time since COVID. We had a drink in the bar the evening before our dinner and loved the ambiance and friendly bartender. We returned the
Following evening for dinner. The food was delicious. The service was horrible. We were seated and bread and butter was brought immediately. Then we waited for our server. He finally took our drink order and they finally showed up after another 15 mins. Our order was delivered by a runner. We had ordered a baked potato with lots of butter. It came with a very small cup of sour cream. We couldn’t find our server so flagged another. He immediately brought us butter and salt pepper. Again we waited for the check. My husband is an excellent tipper but not for this meal. We had dessert at the bar and the service was quick and the drinks served promptly.

We had very spacious and comfortable seating for the 3 of us. We ordered littleneck clams and shrimp cocktail for our appetizers, both of which were delicious. We all ordered steak for our entree, along with garlic mashed and mushrooms on the side. Everything was very good and perfectly cooked. Our theater reservation was for 8pm, and the reservation was at 5:45pm, which unfortunately did not leave us time for dessert, so keep that in mind, I guess.

Very basic, pricey steakhouse in accessible midtown location. If you don't eat steak, options are few, but tasty alternatives to steak are available. An appetizer and vegetable side could easily comprise a dinner-sized portion for a light-ish eater.
Atmosphere is very pleasant: quiet and clubby in feeling. Downstairs booths across from the bar look particularly appealing, although we sat upstairs and had complete privacy. It's definitely suited best to a business dinner or special occasion for the non-adventurous eater seeking a reliably satisfying and relaxed evening out.

The food was very good. The filet mignon and shrimp scampi was wonderful as was the encrusted tuna. The only negative was the waiter. He was not attentive and even a little rude. He never even came back to ask how the food was or if we wanted another drink. The restaurant was not crowded so there was no reason. I would go again but ask for a different waiter.
