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.

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!

It look 45 minutes to get our table but the staff definitely made it up to us since it was three of our bdays. They did a great job of taking care of us and allowing us to have a fun time. Thank you for that. They made waiting all that time disappear... that’s a rarity!

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.

The staff was wonderful, the food was completely amazing, but holy cow: way too loud! We were screaming to carry on a conversation, and, “WHAT?” was yelled often. Would absolutely come back, but at a less busy time.

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 and service was excellent. The noise level is quite high, but we went early so it was not as bad as the last time there, when the restaurant was full. I requested an outdoor seat but nothing was available and we did have a nice seat inside that accommodated my hearing impairment issue.

All went well until we ordered dessert
we waited at least an hour and i asked twice for serviceto no avail
it seemed like everyone forgot us also if gratuity is included then we should be informed i might not have waned to give such a large tip
actually maybe the service would have been better if there wasnt a already an expected 20% tip

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.

We had the most attentive and articulate waiter that truly made our dinner a wonderful experience! The entire staff was incredibly hospitable and on top of everything. My cavatalli and sausage dish along with my friend's gnocchi with oxtail and eggplant parmigiana were off the charts as well. Well done team Frankies 570!!

It is impossible to put to words how amazing the food is at Frankie’s. We visit from Pittsburgh, I’m originally from NY, and we visit Frankie’s whenever we can. The food is absolutely amazing. What appears to be simple food is unparalleled in taste and technique. I wish their venture in Pittsburgh would have panned out. Thank you Frankie’s!!

We’ve been to Frankie’s before, but were surprised by how unhappy we were with all of our meals. All three dishes were heavily salted. We had to return one dish. Octopus was over-grilled and dry. Chickpeas were surprisingly undercooked. Unfortunately we will likely not return to a restaurant we usually really enjoy.

I love Frankies and frequent the Brooklyn location. The food is consistently delicious and it's a wonderful space. That said I was disappointed to be a bit rushed at their Manhattan location. Our group of six had an 8pm reservation. I've ordered multiple courses at their other restaurant but it seemed they wanted to turn the table over and insisted we order everything at once. It's definitely understandable - but maybe this spot isn't best for catching up with friends from out of town.

Frankies 570 was a surprisingly exceptional experience. The Manhattans were perfect, the appetizers - the Kale Salad and Asparagus Salad - were the best we ever had. The pasta and veal were perfectly prepared and entirely devoured. The service was great and this nosey happening place has a great vibe!
