Sad to see Frankie’s close for good today! It has been our family’s go to restaurant for many happy years.
Not sure what is planned for Bloomies, but Frankie’s will be missed by many.
Good luck to Frankie

Frankie’s was surprisingly good. We had doubts when we saw its location is in a mall (900 N Michigan). Everything about it turned out to be above our expectations. The food including the delicious bread, the salad and entrees was amazing! Our waiter was very attentive and cheerful.

For the second time at the Chicago Marathon, we came here for carb-loading. The food was absolutely fabulous - the sauce incredible. Our runners left pleasantly filled and the atmosphere was upbeat and a joyous pre-race ritual. We felt that the meals were moderately priced for the Boul Mich area, and we were thrilled with that. The wines were a little pricey, but we noticed that if we come back on a different day, wine specials were available. Frankie's is a little hidden gem!

I was in town for the Chicago Marathon and had made reservations here not knowing how good it was. Our food was excellent! I later learned this restaurant will close in a few weeks. I’m so sad! I would they would reconsider closing this site.

Not sure what's changed, but was disappointed this visit. Heard the same from a freind a few weeks ago. Service was really lacking. Pizza is now cut into squares??? Italians don't cut pizza into squares, pie shape is the perfect proportion of crust to yummy topping. Took three requests to get one guest's drink and get it right. The trout special was prepared perfectly and was delicious! Come on, Frankie's has always been a great meal and destination, get back to what you were! I won't give up!

Still good, but not what it used to be. The service is good, but not great. Baked spaghetti is still very good. But the back rooms decor creates a feeling of being in a low-grade restaurant. The place was better before it changed to Frankie's Scallopini.

We had our usual order of baked spaghetti with marinara sauce (a specialty of the house) with veal meatballs and a cup of tomato bisque as appetizers. These are consistently excellent. (There are other good things on the menu, but these are our favorites.) Service was very fast, partly because it was not yet the busiest time.

This was my first time at this restaurant. It's on the 5th floor of the 900 n Michigan building. A pretty quiet building. There is construction in the building so I assume that's why there wasn't much foot traffic. Our server was excellent. She was there every time we needed her.

We ordered two of the daily specials. One was noodles with fresh corn and shrimp. The 2nd was salmon with spinach. We split both entrees and cleaned our plates. Very yummy!

I usually don't get dessert but we could not resist the warm cookie with vanilla gelato. Also delicious.

I'll definitely return.

A friend and I met again after 20 yrs, and I was enormously pleased with my choice of restaurant. The Wait Staff could not have been more efficient in service while graciously allowing our conversation to flow without interruption, we had so much to catch up on. Our selection was a healthy choice of fresh and tasty also. When I come to Chicago again, I will definitely visit your fine restaurant. 5stars!

Restaurant is part of Lettuce Entertain You chain so it is no surprise that the food and service are excellent. What is surprising is that this high quality restaurant is situated in a mall. Chopped salad and chicken parmigiana are top notch and food portions are generous on all menu items.

The food was so good! Yum! We shared meatball appetizer and large salad with chicken and pasta. Their baked spaghetti is unique and was delicious along with pork and risotto special, maghuerita pizza and seafood pasta dish. Unfortunately the building's scaffolding for ongoing work prevented any view we may have had of Michigan Avenue. Since that is temporary, we definitely will return soon. Also they validate parking in the garage which is convenient.

This is a gem with one of get best chicken parms around. We've been going here for several years, tried just about everything on the menu and always leave full and happy. Managers and wait staff are welcoming and ready to make you feel right at home. Next time we'll try lunch and taste a slice of pizza which looks too good to pass up.
