They would not seat us. Told us they closed online seating after I was already confirmed. Didn’t even care to try to make it work for two of us

It's always a pleasure to dine at Frankie's. Nancy is our favorite server.
Don't expect a relaxed, quiet dinner on Tues., because hat's half-priced pizza night !

Pizza was excellent as usual
Veal Tosca was not as good as previous times the veal was a little tough and the bottom was burned rather disappointed in the dish this time around
The bread was not heated enough to make it crusty on the outside with a warm center also disappointing since the bread is usually delicious
Server was attentive and pleasant

Great pastas, I had the sausage, peppers and pasta dish very generous portion although the sausage was over cooked and dry. There were six of us and all enjoyed their dinners.

We finally tried Frankie's after years of talking about it, and were pleased. The food is very good and the service helpful and friendly. Everything is pretty basic and simple, but it's stood the test of time and has a lot of loyal customers.

We were greeted immediately when we walked through the door with a smile and sat at our table. Our Waitress Kara was excellent. She was very well mannered and very efficient. She tended to our needs perfectly. The food is amazing!!! We will be back for sure. Excellent Experience.

This is an “old fashioned” place, and clearly a local icon. I’m
a red sauce freak and their’s is good— well cooked. I dislike undercooked sauce. This place is nothing fancy, but everyone was friendly and the food hit the spot.

Food is outstanding! Server was average. Server had salad dressing dripping from plate when serving us. :(
Server didn’t ask how meals were - but server did grab payment/ tip really quick as to clear our party out.

We had a reservation, still had to wait 15 minutes for our booth. Shrimp Mediterranean I and another family member ordered had maybe 4 small, over cooked shrimp. We had a bottle of wine, wine glasses were cloudy. No salad fork; we were asked to save our fork for the entree. However server was excellent. We sadly won't go back.

Calamari was a little tough and sauce ‘ uninspired ‘.
The veal Marsalis was pretty good but the pasta was served luke warm and again , sauce was not too good.
I didn’t taste it but the presentation of the Veal Parmigiana was dreadful !
Barely browned breaded veal with a slice of cheese barely melted on top ??
Really ? Not at all the way I served Parmigiana Dishes in my Italian Pizzerias Restaurants’s nor the way ANY decent restaurant I’ve eaten at served it.
Served hot with bubbly melted mozzarella and Parmesan cheese and GOOD marinara sauce is the right way.
Server was great but I don’t think I’d return.

Ever since I was a child I have come to Frankies. I am now 57 years old. I just love that you have never changed how you make the house dressing and all that cheese.

Experience excellent.

Open Table app troublesome. Would not permit me to change party size, so I accepted the “default” party of 2.

Received email confirmation. Then attempted unsuccessfully to modify. Although app did not show change from party of 2 to party of 4 , and no change confirmation was received, the restaurant was notified of the modification

So all was well, except for time wasted withstood and calling the restaurant

Thanks

Food was good, but rather expensive for what you get . Don't see the value.
