Frankie & Johnnie's Steakhouse
Steak & seafood in a converted townhouse
Steakhouse · West 30s · $$$
The Zagat Review
To experience “days long past” , fans dig these long-running “throwbacks” (the 37th Street outpost is set in John Barrymore's former townhouse) known for “delectable” steaks, “career” waiters and “rough-around-the-edges” decor; just note the prices are decidedly up to date.

Zagat Mentions of Frankie & Johnnie's Steakhouse

Excellent service with a rare ability to deliver a totally fabulous dining experience. The food and cocktails were excellent both nights we dined there but the service was phenomenal. We dined there the first night because it was convenient. We returned because it was excellent. We enjoyed cocktails in the bar and interacting with the congenial and interesting bartenders. Dinner both nights was superb- beef and seafood. The key lime pie is of South Florida standard or better! Of particular mention was the above and beyond service from Daniel and others who made Frankie and Johnny’s a wonderful place we will definitely return to again and again. 5 stars and then some.

Love this place. Why? They are doing their part in keeping the semi-formal, dark wood, low-light, traditional steakhouse concept alive. And they do it very well. Our group of four had reservations, showed up right on time, and our table was ready. Nice. On our way to our table we encountered an immediate problem. There was a large table, maybe of 14 people that were being extremely loud and obnoxious, obviously had been there a while, and had much to drink. I told the staff that we were headed for the door unless they took care of this. Someone got the manager right away, who then went to the table and had some words with them. Not a peep came from that table after his visit. Don't know what he said but it worked. Such a pleasure to have a competent person minding the store. The meal was almost perfect. We got the special bone-in ribeye for two. Strongly suggest having that, if it is offered when you are there. Also, make sure you get the chocolate molten dessert. Will go back as soon as I can.

This is a nice old fashioned, old school steak house right in midtown. When my friend and I went during the week, we got a table right away which is nice. It's very dark in there so it was kind of difficult to go through the menu. We had to use the flashlight on our phones in order to see. We ordered the porterhouse for two, Frankie & Johnnie's salad and a bottle of wine. I think the bill was a little over 200 which isn't too horrible. I feel like for old school steakhouses, that's kind of ok price. The Frankie & Johnnie salad was so basic. I don't see what's different from this and some other basic salad. You can also tell that the lettuce wasn't really washed. I really hate that when you can taste the earthiness of the lettuce. The porterhouse was good. It was slightly burnt on the outside but inside was so soft. It also had a really nice flavor because it was seasoned well.
