Frankie & Johnnie's

If you’re interested in a fabulous filet at an inflated price, this place may suit your taste. We'll certainly admit we've never had a more tender, succulent piece of meat, and we've had our share. But for the load we dropped, we expected quite a bit more. The atmosphere drips dull with an air of pretention. The service is fair, but certainly not to the standard of a fine dining establishment. Did we mention, you can cut the filet with a fork, but the rest of the food paled in comparison. For example, the Frankie and Johnnie's salad was literally pale, sad lettuce, unbedazzled with token pieces of tomato and pepper tossed in an unrevealing dress. Among the NYC stanchions of fab slabs of meat, this one’s showing some wear.

my husband and i like this restaurant because unlike other steakhouse it is quite a romantic setting. you are not sitting so close to the person next to you as a matter of fact on the times we have eaten there we are lucky enough to have had a nice big booth. we got there early this time wonderful service and beautiful surroundings wait staff very attentive but not annoying nice karma and relaxing vibe. we never felt rushed and it is well worth the price. my husband's favourite steakhouse in manhattan wish we were there now! but bring your appetite very large portions.

thanks for providing such a great time for our family of 13. We had a birthday dinner for my mom on 12/23/09 and everyone went out of their way to make it great. The complimentary limo ride was icing on the cake! The food was great, portions generous and service was helpful, since we had little ones and seniors to accomodate. I would highly recommend this restaurant to NYC visitors.

We went for winter restaurant week 2009 and what a nice experience. We ordered from the retaurant week menu and the la carte. Just know that just like every other good steak house in NYC the menu is la carte. so you order the steak and sides are extra....expect it but it is worth it. I had the braised beef ribs in a port wine reduction with onion straws...she had the petit filet with a baked potato. All the food was beyond expectations and the staff was very attentive. I reccomend this place to everyone looking for a classy steak dinner. just expect to spend some money but it is worthe very penny. highly reccomeneded.

We went for restaurant week dinner and were very impressed. The filets were delicious, and we ordered sides a la carte. We had a scheduled their complimentary limo service for our show after dinner and the staff made every effort to give us a great meal and also get us out on time. Great value overall. We will come again.

We had never eaten at this steakhouse before and decided to try it out over Restaurant week. We I have to say for the total of a $100 that we spent, I am hugely disappointed. The ambience really wasn't what you would expenct when you go to such an acclaimed steakhouse. The patrons were loud and you could barely see your food because the lighting was so dim. They should have at least provided a candle at the table so that we could see what their chefs worked so hard for! We had to first request bread because it wasn't served to go along with our appetizers. Who eats Filet Mignon Tartare without at least a cracker? Our main course arrives without as much as a side to accompany it. My husband had a petit filet which he said was an alright cut but it arrived on a bare plate with a mushroom cap. I received the braised short ribs in a very mild wine sauce. That was all there was on my plate. The same when with desert. Overall the food wasn't horrible but I will say I definitely won't be returning either. If you are planning on visiting this restaurant for Restaurant Week, please note that you will be spending money to get a kid's size portion and not the same amount of taste and service you would receive at another establishment.

The $30 price tag on lunch was a bit steep for me....but it was well worth it! The salad to start was great and the second course of filet mignon, mashed potatoes and veggies was exceptional! The steak melted in my mouth! I would go back again anytime! **Great for a business lunch if you are trying to impress someone!
