First time there to celebrate a birthday and engagement. Had a fantastic meal at a very reasonable price. But the best part was the phenomenal service. Our waitress, Michelle, was extremely kind and just the right amount of attentive. Definitely our new favorite steak house.

The steak was very good. My Ribeye was not seasoned so salt and pepper was needed. Overall the party was very satisfied.

Quiet enough so you could hear each other, nice neighborhood spot.
Tomahawk pork chop, seared scallops and chicken picatta, all very good value for the price.
Cream puff with ice cream and whipped cream, very large and delicious.
$107. for salads, entrees, potato and vegetables, dessert and cocktails for 3.
Good deal according to all of us.
Friendly staff on a Sunday night and very busy. No wait.

Steaks were relatively inexpensive, but were grainy and not particularly flavorful. Disappointing.

Frank's is always good. The food is very good and the service is excellent. They do not rush you at all to turn over the table. Good value. We have recommended this restaurant to many people

The steak and prime rib are first rate, and equal to the Back Bay/corporate houses. Better than some.
Seating is quite comfortable, not crowded in the least, and the vibe is a bit neighborhood.
Prices are moderate, notably for before-6 pm early bird dinners.
Some off-street parking, and nearby Mass Ave meters.
Wine list is short, without expensive labels. Very well selected, though, and priced agreeably.
Ambiance is less than formal, and service is not Michelin-strict.
Three-pound "tomahawk" ribsteak a notable menu item. Quite something when it arrives at the table.
Altogether most worthwhile.

Came here in July and it was very good , this time not at all. Had a 7:30 reservation , walked in the place was in chaos, were not seated till 8:20. Server was great and quick as we were hangry. 2 out of 3 steaks were dry and chewy and the crab cakes were bread and filler. The ribeye was a good choice as was the salad and a very good wine list.

Have been here many times before, but this time Service was rushed and waitress very unfriendly . We were at the table for maybe 3 minutes and waiting for another guest when we were asked if we would like an appetizer. Our final guest arrived snd waitress asked if we wanted a drink before the guest even sat down.. We felt like it was end of her shift snd she wanted to leave. Good food, but disappointed in the service.

I have always enjoyed eating at Frank's. The food and the value is great, but tonight was the first time the service was horrible. It took forever to get anything and when we did at least have one or more things missing. I'm hoping this was just a bad night night and not a preview of what's to come.

I've been to Frank's twice now and BOTH times, everything was absolutely delicious. First time I had their BBQ Ribs special and the second time I had the NY Strip. Both were fantastic. Both times I've been with someone who has gotten the prime rib, and I definitely need to order it myself on my third visit. My only critique is that the calamari appetizer is more fried breading than I was expecting. But Frank's is now my go-to when I'm craving red meat!

I thinking franks used to be really good. Not sure on the story but seems like one of those places that was at one time really good because it was simple but done very well. But not so much now.

Service was not very good. It was rushed and didn’t seem to know much about there own menu.
The app looked delicious but ended up being cold in the middle. Cold fried mozzarella not to good.

For a steak house the steak was not cook the way we asked for it. The steamed broccoli still had a snap to it like it want cooked long enough either.

It wasn't awful , but was disappointed.

Went to franks for my husbands 30th birthday and had a fantastic time. Prime rib and surf and turf was perfect. My husband had the tomahawk steak and finished the whole thing. He said it was one of the best steaks he’s ever had.

This has become our spot for "special" family dinners, and as our young son grows up, I hope to keep that up. the service is always great and friendly, and I love that my kid especially feels at home there. Keep up the great food and service! I know Frank's has been around for a long time, and I hope it continues to do so.

I took my wife and son out on an early Saturday night after watching the Phantom Gourmet show describing Franks as a great steak at a bargain price. We ordered several appetizers which were VERY good so things started well. We also had cocktails which also were good and delivered promptly. The problem was the steaks. It too 45 minutes after appetizers were delivered to get our steaks. My wife ordered the regular cut of Prime Rib medium and it was very large. But it came out grey, and from the looks of it had been sitting under the warmer for too long. My son got the Sizzler, and it was a good size steak, but he also ordered medium and it was grey throughout. I got the Rib Eye, and while mine was cooked the best, it was not a good piece of Rib Eye. Fatty and tough? The sides that came with the meal were very good also. We frequent Cap Grille, Grille 23, and Ruth Chris and though this was much less expensive the steaks were not nearly up to par. We are hoping this is an anomaly and we are going to give it one more shot before son heads to college. After watching Phantom, we were mildly disappointed. Our waiter was very good.
