Jezebel/Frankie and Johnnie's/Joe Allen/Ollie's

  • k

Has anyone been to any of these places? I was unable to get reservations for Lattanzi's or Becco's on the night needed, as I had hoped and have confirmed that these restaurants have availability.

I am looking for a dress/casual atmosphere with good food. It doesn't have to be fancy but, if it is, that's okay. The mentioned restaurants are in the area that we are trying to stay in.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

  1. Hello,Stay away from Joe Allen.It's the biggest ripoff going. I paid $15.00 for a piece of meatloaf and a scoop of mashed potatoes. I wouldn't have minded if it was good but I could make it better at home and I have had better meatloaf elsewhere. Good luck,Richie

    1. Ollie's is terrible. Cheap, but really awful if you are used to Chinatown chinese as I am.

      Had reservations for Jezebel once and cancelled because I read a terrible review on their food. The critic didn't like anything from the appetizer to the dessert.

      Haven't been to the others. Good luck.
