Brunch @ Frank @ AGO: Disaster

shekamoo Jun 19, 2010 10:54 AM

Omelette of the day (Roma Tomatoes and Basil)was flavorless and overcooked. The pancakes were actually disgusting, smelling strongly of somewhat-stale egg and very stuffy. The scones and the bread were also stale and very dry. The bacon reminded me of McDonalds. what happened there? I thought they were supposed to be a top brunch spot. so disappointing, and at almost $100 for two people (including two 'specialty' coffees) , horrendously overpriced. almost ruined my saturday morning. yuck

    I went to a lunch at Frank at AGO a few weeks ago. While the food was ok the service was SLOW. I couldn't believe how slow it was.

    How was the service itself, shekamoo?

      Agree, way way overpriced. I had brunch at Frank one time and never return, the frank steak is almost inedible.

        Frank really is overpriced for brunch! While the food and service was very good... my 5 year old wanted the grilled cheese sandwich but at 16$ i was a little put off. Luckily they offered to go to the cafeteria and get a regular grilled cheese for 4$. three people (2 adults, 1 child) dined for 80$ plus tax and tip! Certainly not a regular weekend brunch spot.
