I normally don't eat in the Times Square area when I head into the city. Can't expect much in a tourist area. But I had treated a guest to an exhibit and it made sense to eat nearby. Even with my lowered expectations, I was still

We loving coming for the Steak and love the family feel of the Restaurant. As far as a steak house goes they have very good prices. My husband and I are adding it to our favorite list.

One of the worst dining experiences of my life.

6 of us went here for my parents' 40th anniversary and they kept serving my brother after we had finished each course.

He got his oysters very late and then his t-bone came out 15 min after the rest of us got our food - he ordered medium and it was very, very rare. After 2 more tries he switched to a sirloin and it too was way too underdone. By this time the rest of us had finished our meal

To make things worse, Peter, the manager was uncaring and disrespectful.

The waiter was gracious enough to offer to take the uneaten steak off the bill (like I would have paid for it anyway) and offered us a glass of wine and a piece of cheesecake for the anniversary. Big deal.

This place should be avoided, there are a ton of other really good steakhouses in the city (Quality Meats, Del Frisco's, Keens). It's a dinosaur that should be extinct.

Pros: none

Cons: manager is a boor - couldn't get all 6 dishes out at the same time - one they couldn't get right at all

Went to the 45th street location before a show. This was my first time there at Frankie and Johnnies and it will be my last. Im a New Yorker not a tourist and i like a place with character but this was DIRTY. The seats were filthy, there was no AC on and the wall unti was 100 years old and the place wascovered in dust everywhere. For the kind of money they charge for a steak with no veggie, salad or potato they can afford to have someone clean the dirt that is everywhere.
I had a Filet Mignon and lobster tail and the scalloped potatoes. The Lobster tail was small and tough. The steak was good but they undercooked it and it had to be sent back, by a long shot. The potatoes were part raw. They were awful. Everything seemed very plain with no spices and no sauces to be found anywhere. Also, its very expensive considering the food isnt very good. It was busy but i suppose that is due to the fact that people want to eat close to the theatre district.
The service was good but the waiters are older then the dirt on the lamps, and they seem unhappy to be there at all.
Again it was stiffling hot with little AC to be had, and cramped so close to other tables that you could not have a private conversation if you wanted to.

200$ inlcuded 2 drinks, 2 dinners, 1 salad, 1 potato dish and oh yes, the cheesecake that they opened from a box of sara lee. Half frozen and tasteless.
Im not that picky either !
Wont be going back there anytime soon.

Pros: Good steaks

Cons: Just about everything else but the location

.

We made reservations at 8pm and arrived a few minutes early, which was good as the place filled up within 20 minutes. Interior is small, warm, cozy and romantic. The filet mignon was tender, juicy, tasty and required no steak sauce. Absolutely the best we have ever had.
The wait-staff was nice but slow on the drink re-fills. However, that seemed to be the norm at numerous other restaurants as well.

Oh my gosh - By far the best steak and salmon my husband and I have enjoyed in a long time. The food was great. The setting feels kind of like a scene out of GoodFellas. Experienced waiters in tuxes and stellar, consistent, traditional wait service. Our most unique and talked about dining experience on our first trip to NY. My husbands steak was cooked perfectly and I honestly can't describe how perfect my piece of salmon was. I'm craving it again right now and it's 9 AM.

The steaks at Frankie & Johnnie's are among the best I've ever had in the city. They select just the right cut and put the best sear on them. Everything on their menu is delicious - you won't be disappointed no matter what you get.

This second floor restaurant had good reviews on this site. What were you thinking, people? The $82 porterhouse steak stunk - LITERALLY! When they brought it, I immediately started looking around and stiffing the air like a dog, since there aroma resembled nothing less than stale gym socks left in the gym bag for weeks. The asparagus and the mushroom caps had no taste of any kind. The waiter was rude to us at the door when we walked in, but warmed up when I ordered the porterhouse - what a ****! If you end up going there (big mistake), stay away from the waiter with the big mole on his face.
Worst steak in New York - by far. Try Old Homstead or Peter Lugars, Sparks... DO NOT GO HERE!

We wanted steak and we wanted it right away. Despite our spontaneous craving, we were looking for a romantic setting. The lighting was good and the tables are not too close together. However; our experience was a bit rough at first due to extremely loud and crude obnoxious bankers and tourists, but a cocktail helped us ignore them. The service was extremely courteous, and even generous. Our seafood apps were fresh and tasty and my ribeye was rich and fulfilling. Steak craving -- satsified. This restaurant is expensive, but you are certainly getting what you pay for.

We've been there a few times and everytime it just seems to get better. Their surf and turf is very yummy. Succulent lobster and mouth watering filet mignon! My husband's rib-eye was to die for, buttery, tender and awesome flavor! The decor was very interesting. Seems like someone's cool loft or a dressing room at some point. Hence the theater district! Had a wonderful time! Can't wait to go back!

I took my girlfriend to see Chicago and after we went into Frankie and Johnnies for something to eat. Was not expecting to have the amazing dinner that we did! I ordered the surf and turf and mashed potatoes and my girlfriend ordered the lobster tails. We both left with our stomachs full and big smiles on our faces. We are going to go back to try some of the other items on the menu tonight.

I went there for restaurant week w/my friends. service was ok, I asked for a glass of water w/no ice 5 times from 4 different ppl and each and every time I got water w/ice. Other then that the service was fine. Food was ok. Felt they were overpriced for what they offered. Ive had better elsewhere. I didnt get the steak but if I do go again I wil try the steak. My friends got it and said it was alright. Would only go back to try the steak (but I know there plently of other good steak houses in the city). Other then that would not go back.

I recent went to Frankie and Johnnies Steakhouse and I was definitely impressed. The sirloin steak was amazing and the proportions huge! I really enjoyed the history of the place, with all the pictures of old celebs on the walls. And our server was great, he was very attentative. I will definitely be back for more.

After several visits I have had nothing but wonderful experiences at Frankie and Johnnies. I look forward to return trips with eager anticipation. No other steakhouse in Manhattan can beat Frankie and Johnnies. The service is warm and professional while the food is out of this world. I went with my family and we all ordered different things from the menu: porterhouse for two, sirloin, pork chops and even shrimp scampi. The sides and the bread were just as mouth watering as the dinners! Everyone was beyond happy with their dinner. Two thumbs up!

I brought my girl into the city for a night of good eats and the theatre. Frankie & Johnnie's made my night! Not only did we get limo service to and from the restaurant - but the dinner was amazing. If it was up to me, I would have rathered to stay there all night then go to the play!

I must start off by saying that my boyfriend THINKS he works for Zagat. We go out and he critiques. No matter what, he always has something to say - something could have been better. Frankie & Johnnie's silenced the critique. He did not have a single complaint! THANK YOU! The food was phenominal, service on-point and the limo service put this place off the charts. This is my new favorite place! I am so glad I decided to check it out.

let met tell you this: I LOVE this place. The steak is just soooo good, and the winelist is extensive. Might I suggest the Porterhouse, with a side of mashed potatoes. I'm a steak and potatoes kind of gal, so this just hit the spot! Just when I thought I would have to unbottom my pants from fullness, out came the dessert menu. Apple Cobbler is the way to go, people! Warm, crisp apples, and an outer shell covered in crumbs is unbelievable.

yes, the lights flicker on and off, yes there are old people and tourists on their way to see broadway shows, and the seating is a bit cramped, but the second the food arrived all of that stops mattering. we ordered the lamb chops and the sirloin and both were broiled to perfection. i especially liked how the waiter cut the meat from the bone. my boyfriend and i eat a lot of meat and have been to most of the best places around town and for steak, this one is definitely tops. my mouth is still watering.

I dined at Frankie and Johnnie's on Saturday night with a few friends. The service was wonderful, and our waiter was and server were very friendly. The food was delicious-- if you want a good piece of steak, this is the place to go. I had my Porterhouse well-done, and it could not have been any better. It was tender, and just right. For any of you non-steak eaters out there (such as my dining partner), there's plenty else to choose from. The salmon was great, and the mashed potatoes are to die for!!

My husband and I dined here on a recent Friday evening. We were seated promptly. The waitstaff were very polished and you could tell they had all been doing this for a long time. Everything we had was great including lobster and crabmeat cocktail,
caesar salad and an excellent surf and turf. The steak had a marvelous seasoning on it and the lobster melted in your mouth. We were amazed that the prices were better that in our favorite steakhouse in Columbus Ohio.

I really looked forward to going here after reading mostly positive reviews. The hostess was very nice and helpful. The atmosphere was kind of dingy and they must not have paid there electric bill because the lights kept dimming every 60 seconds, but the reason I went there was for the steak, and it was excellent, the creamed spinach was OK.

My parents and I visited Frankie & Johnnie's over the weekend and the food was incredible! I am not a big steak lover, but my father promised I would love the steak here and he was right. I had the sirloin and it was delicious and tender. I lso had the potatoes au gratin which were really good too. My parents loved their food, and of course there was enough leftover for everybody to walk away with a doggie bag. I can't wait to go back the Frankie & johnnie's with my boyfriend.

WE HAVE BEEN TO MANY HIGH CLASS RESTERAUNTS AND THIS IS NOT ONE OF THEM.
IF YOU WANT A RESTERAUNT WITH A NAME GO HERE. IF YOU WANT A GREAT STEAK AND ATMOSPHERE GO TO THE RIVER PALM IN NJ.
EXPERIENCED THE WORST SERVICE (WAITRESS)
FORGOT OUR SIDES.. BROUGHT OUR STEAKS 1/2 WAY THRU OUR APPETIZERS... THEN BROUGHT THEM BACK WHEN WE WERE READY... IMMEDIATLEY OFFERED --- FREE AFTER DINNER DRINKS AND FREE SIDE... LIKE THIS HAPPENS ALOT...
GAVE THE EXCUSE THAT THERE WAS A NEW
EXPEDITER...WE WILL NEVER GO BACK..
DIDN'T EVEN GIVE US TIME TO DRINK OUR $100-
BOTTLE OF WINE... WHICH WE HAD TO POUR OURSELVES.

Great steak, efficient service, appreciated recommendations from waiter which all resulted in positive experience. Everyone in our party of six was impressed and happy with the experience. A bit pricey, as all is ala carte, but overall a great time. Had 6:00 p.m reservation, we seated immediately, and finished with plenty of time to arrive at show without hurrying. The creamed spinach was wonderful! No room for dessert!

It is worth climbing a flight of black and white checkered stairs to get to the restaurant because once inside you are in for a treat. You feel like you have just stepped into the glamour of a 1950s movie. Old celebrity photos are everywhere, red chandeliers hang from the wall, and wood blinds cover the windows that overlook New Yorks Theatre District. Frankie and Johnnies is definitely the place to go if you are in the mood for a good meal at a classic restaurant.

Old celebrity photos are everywhere, red chandeliers hang from the wall, and wood blinds cover the windows that overlook New Yorks Theatre District. Frankie and Johnnies is definitely the place to go if you are in the mood for a good meal at a classic restaurant.

Pros: Classic Decor, Quality Food, Great Service

.

This is definitely the place to go if you are sick of the ultra-modern and ultra-chic restaurants that are taking over New York. The décor is classic and old fashioned. And my waiter made me feel like I was one of the old celebrities whose autographed picture hung on the wall. And the food was good too! What more could you ask for?

Pros: Service, Atmosphere, Food

We were abandoned. Sat for 1/2 hour before a waitress working another section noticed us and took our order. Never offered dessert. Had to order drinks from the kitchen runner and get the check from the ice water runner. Adjoining diners (who were receiving SOME service) were nonetheless also dissatisfied. A true shame, because the steaks are excellent. All in all, an amazing display of contempt for their patrons.

Pros: excellent steak

Cons: , expensive

Definitely a good steak, and the waiters know how to steer (no pun intended) in the right direction. Not for the health conscious, but a great choice for a no - nonsense cut of meat. I wouldn't say that it's my favorite New York Steakhouse, but it's up there. The steak is a bit salty, but definitely as tender as can be. Definitely a place for men... but it's a steakhouse, so who cares?

My wife and I dined at Frankie and Johnnies on a Friday evening. We were a few minutes early for our reservations, but they had no problem seating us. The atmosphere was extremely pleasing-- a small and intimate setting, not loud and crowded like some of the better known steakhouses in Manhattan. It seemed like a place where those in the know would go for a quiet dinner with good service and great food. A very 1920's feeling. The service was supurb-very professional without being stuffy, and the steaks were prepared to perfection. The appetizers and side dishes were very good. We enjoyed the lump crab cocktail, shrimp cocktail,filet mignon, creamed spinach and garlic mashed potatoes-all were excellent. The prices were what you would expect at a good steakhouse in any large city. Overall a very enjoyable experience. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Now I know. I could not believe the fabulous flavor of steak. I dont' know if it was the steaksauce or the "dry aged" but I know I will always visit my NEW FRIENDS whenever I am in NEW YORK CITY.

Pros: Location, Theater, Great Steaks

.

This is the classic "what you see isn't what you get" kind of place. The rooms look like a throw-back to the 50s and 60s. Kind of darkand a little on the dingy side. Given the look of the place, you might get the impression that the food isn't going to be anything special. But, get over that and, you'll get some of the best steaks anywhere! They're done just the way you want them and the quality of the meat is outstanding! Order up some cottage fries and creamed spinach and you're well on the way to achieving cholesterol heights you never imagined. But, what a trip!!
