What Insiders Are Saying

The Infatuation
7.8

While this isn’t a must visit, Frankies 570 is a reliable option that will be consistently packed with carb seeking humanity who might just appreciate the fact that Grateful Dead’s American Beauty is playing in full.

Ratings 7.5-8.0:These are restaurants that are reliable, tasty, and particularly good for whatever we have deemed them “Perfect For.” Hit up a 7.7 for Date Night with confidence, as long as you don’t need the restaurant to be the most interesting thing that happens that night.

FOR BRUNCH ONLY:
It was Easter Sunday so I was surprised that the restaurant was more quiet than crowded at 1pm when our party of 6 walked in. I made the reservation early enough before Easter and requested outside seating so we can bring our dog along (this was a very common place to see dogs hanging with their families during weekend brunch before, which is why I selected it!)

We had originally requested with OpenTable for outside seating so our dog could just hang under or around the table. The morning the day before our reservation, I was called and told that neither of my requests were possible., NO way- we aren’t doing dogs on the patio anymore plus NO parties of 6 fit outside on the patio, That’s not even possible!” (Though upon arrival, there were many ways to accommodate the request.).
So that was the biggest disappointment-they waited until the day before Easter Sunday to tell me this news- making it impossible to get a different outdoor seating table elsewhere that allows a dog or could even take a new table at all in that matter!

Oh well- we stayed, dog-in-car, us indoors,anyway. Service was ok, took awhile for all 6 drinks to show up on time or ever in sync. Beer was so warm the first one was sent back when it was ordered at the bar.. Good food, just so deathly basic- nothing I couldn’t have done at home on my own. No instagram pics or stories were taken. The gnocchi needs way more sauce and less cheese. The best thing on the menu is the Kale Salad, don’t miss it. Otherwise this place is better for dinner.

Ambiance is good but not as romantic as the Carroll Gardens location (but how can you blame them for that) the food was excellent and the wine list - both glass and bottle - is perfect.

This is the third or fourth time we've been here. Incredible dinner, incredible ambiance. Every time we go, the menu is slightly different based on the season, but there has always been amazing options. We always get a starter, two entrees and a side to share so we can fully experience the menu. Nothing short of great on all fronts. Definitely, recommend.

Love this place! Menu changes regularly, wine list is good and moderately priced but the service is the best part of this restaurant. The hostess helped accommodate our reservation when it changed from 2 people to 4 and couldn't have been nicer about it. And the waitress was so knowledgeable about the menu. Definitely recommend eating here!

We go to Frankie's 570 about once a year for its authentic food, relaxed and cozy atmosphere, and professional, friendly service. The entire experience is always a happy one, and the menu is well worth exploring for its seasonal dishes and old favorites like the meatballs.

We were a party of six to celebrate my husband's birthday. Everything was wonderful food was great service was great. The only disappointing part was that his birthday was not acknowledged even though on OpenTable reservation there is an option for special details. Upon entering the restaurant the lovely hostess did great my husband with a "Happy Birthday " and our waiter acknowledged to me that he was aware of the special occasion but that was the end of it.No tiny slice of cake, no candle. Very disappointing.

MENU CHANGES WERE DISAPPOINTING; USED TO COME HERE FOR SOME PRETTY SPECIAL ITALIAN SNACKS AND POLENTA, WHICH ARE NO LONGER ON THE MENU. FOOD WAS GOOD BUT NOTHING SPECIAL EXCEPT PERHAPS THE MEATBALLS WHICH WERE ABOUT THE ONLY ITEMS LEFT FROM PREVIOUS MENU (THAT I REMEMBER) AND WERE TASTY AND AUTHENTIC. OTHERWISE, NOTHING SPECIAL, SORRY TO SAY BECAUSE IT IS IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD.

Great food served in a cozy friendly place. The wait staff was attentive without hovering. The meal was wonderful! I only wish that I could steal some of the chef’s recipes!!!! The butternut squash soup was flavorful and rich. The turkey cooked perfectly- the white meat was so juicy. All in all a delightful Thanksgiving dinner!

The food that came out of the kitchen was no better than my grade-school cafeteria. Absolutely no craft evident in the food. It was completely uninspired. Their famous cavatelli with sausage floated in grease and was overcooked. My wife was urged to order off the menu -- chicken milanese -- which was D.O.A. No succulence, devoid of seasoning. Paying $129 for such amateurish food was the final insult.

Everything about this place is terrific. The hostess greeted us immediately and with a smile. Wait staff was incredibly attentive and the menu, although small, offered a great variety of staples and non-traditional items (like the grilled octopus with chic peas that my husband and I shared). Prices are reasonable for the premium quality received. Will def go back and highly reco.
