Good food, not pretentious, not overpriced

So many of the restaurants in Lenox are pretentious and overpriced. You know the drill: small portions, big plates, big bill. Not Frankie's. They serve good food, nice portions, well prepared, but without the frills that boost the price. We had an excellent dinner for much less than the posh... read more

This restaurant even if it was recommended by the hotel personnel did not come close to our expectations. The food was average at best and on the expensive side. Great outdoor deck tiny tables and uncomfortable chairs. Lock of pasta choices, blah arabiata sauce and limited wine menu by the glass. Excellent wine menu by the bottle. Exceptional service and...

Our food was very good. Our fried mozzarella and arugula salad appetizers were excellent. Our pasta entrees were good but not particularly special. Although we had reserved an outside table, they hadn't recorded it that way. While a disappointing way to start, they added a table outside on the side and accommodated us. The side is not as scenic as... More

This restaurant has been around for a long time, but they sure have kept their cuisine up to date. We had a delicious meal, with obvious care given in the preparation. I really liked their tomato sauce (over pasta). Will definitely return.

We tried Frankie's at the request of our hotel clerk. It has a great setting and I would recommend to others. Unfortunately, during our visit, they ran out of Frankie's Famosa Lasagna, which by many accounts is exceptional. As a result I had the ribeye and I would say it was good, but not special. Our waitress could have been... More

We called ahead for outdoor dining and had our choice of two lovely tables. Our server brought us two samples of wine because we couldn't decide. The food was more than delicious!!! Veal Marsala, and rib eye were great choices!! Then for dessert we tried the salted Carmel gelato, DECADENT...beyond words. We loved this restaurant and can't wait to go... More

Stopped there with friends for dinner on a Tuesday night. All of us had a wonderful dinner. The veal Piccata is delicious. Another had the ribeye which was wonderful. I have never had a bad meal here. Service is always good. I would definitely recommend them.

We were visiting friends in the Berkshires and decided to have an early dinner on Sunday evening. They insisted we go to Frankie's in Lenox. Being the height of the tourism season, I was concerned we wouldn't get a table, but they called ahead and reserved an outdoor table for 4. We arrived on time, and were seated quickly, but... More

We came in after a brutally hot day working outdoors at the Stockbridge Arts and Crafts Fair. Hot, perspired, exhausted. We had a reservation but didn't like the table proposed. The young lady at the front of the house quickly made a change (yeah, ok, we were a wee bit irritable) and we had a booth. Our waiter introduced himself... More

We had a wonderful meal and the weather was perfect for a table outside. The food was excellent and service was perfect.
