Frank's, since I was a kid in the 80s, has always been top notch service and quality. I have been going for years and introduce someone to Frank's as often as I can. They have always come away blown away. My buddies and I grew up in the neighborhood so even though we all moved to different parts of the greater Boston area, we meet at Franks as a group at least a couple times a year.

My wife had the prime rib and I got the tomahawk ribeye. Both cooked and seasoned perfectly and very well priced. The side salads were good and brought out before the meal which was nice. The service was excellent, our server told us he has worked at Franks for 30 years! Parking was a nightmare but there’s not much the restaurant can do about that. We will definitely be back!

I brought a group of residents from a local Assisted Living for early dinner, the group enjoyed the food, we were seated immediately and had wonderful service. We will be back again for a dinner. Your restaurant was easy to park and close to our location in Cambridge.

I've been going to Franks since I was a kid.....so (ouch) nearly 50 years! When I go now with my cousins, we reminisce about being there with our folks. I don't live nearby anymore, but it is worth the trip! And it has always been reliable. Great food (steaks terrific) and always a well-made cocktail! A true gem that I'm so glad still exists.

We come to Frank's a few times a year for a steak or burger and aren't disappointed. It remains a good North Cambridge neighborhood anchor for classic dishes.

Shortly after we arrived a group of ‘carolers’ from Paddy’s arrived and took over the bar area with Christmas carols. They got the whole restaurant involved - SO much fun! Excellent food, great ambiance, excellent service!

I don’t enjoy giving negative reviews but this dinner was an exception. Our waitress spilled my martini, another guest’s martini and then knocked over someone’s soda, getting it all over the woman’s clothes. The food was nothing special. Salads were ok but my sizzler steak was like shoe leather to chew. Another guest had petite filet and said it was terrible, not moist at all. They advertise they are so much cheaper than Boston restaurants for steaks. Well the quality was just not there. I think we had thirteen people and no one was pleased. The restaurant certainly had customers but they must be regulars. I would not suggest this restaurant to anyone. Maybe it was an off night. I was embarrassed that I chose Frank’s but no other restaurant could take a reservation for so many people.

Frank’s is consistently good, in fact I’d say they have gotten better over the years. We had rib eyes and they were cooked perfectly medium. Onion loaf never disappoints.

We dined at Franks Steak House in Cambridge, MA on Thanksgiving because my son had to work late and there were few other local options. We were seated by the host in an area I had requested on Open Table. The waitress was very attentive, even though it had been a long day for her. We opted not to order the special turkey dinner, but I got a perfectly cooked petite filet with delicious butter/herb sauce...so tender . My son got a special pasta dish which he loved. I enjoyed a dinner martini which was really well made. Dinner this year was a quiet, cosy, affordable experience. We were in a booth, so we could enjoy our conversation. The restaurant seemed filled with other people also having a nice holiday.
