  • Looking for a romantic location
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 9/16/2014
    I was looking for a new restaurant that I could take my wife to for a nice and relaxing evening. 2Johns hit the mark. Menu offered a very nice selection, food seemed fresh and very nicely prepared. The dining rooms are well lit so the mood lighting and background noise left it a little void ofm the truly romantic feel I was hoping for. Overall we had a very nice evening, enjoyed our dining experience and would definitely return for a nice evening out together.

    we chose this restaurant for our anniversary. Several people recommended this restaurant and described the food "outstanding". We ordered shrimp and crawfish fettuccine and grilled chicken breast. We added a side of the augratin potatoes, stewed Spinach and rtsauteed mushrooms. We did not find the food to taste "outstanding" The food was good but it was extremely over priced. One is definitely paying for presentation! I would recommend this restaurant for special occasions for the dim lit dining was romantic. I would not recommend that the food be classified as outstanding.

    This place has the best steak I have had in the shreveport area. We had salad appetizers that were above average. The spinach risotto was not salty but still very good. As said above, steaks were some of the best I ever had

    This was my 2nd dinner at 2Johns. It did not disappoint. My fried green tomato salad was amazing. For dinner I highly suggest ordering the roasted corn. Perfection! Bread pudding was also great. Our waiter was good and knew the menu well. I suggest using the valet as parking can be difficult to find. I will be back.

    This was our second visit to 2John's. It was another great dining experience, and I will be looking for another reason to cross the river to Bossier! "This is how food should taste" my husband and I agreed. We celebrated my husband's birthday with friends. The steaks are the best you can get in the Bossier/Shreveport area. I had the trout and it too was prepared perfectly, moist and flaky. The blackberry cobbler dessert was decadent. Thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere to eat and visit with friends. A great night out.

    Dined on 8/23/2014
    This was the first time we had experienced dining at 2 Johns. We had heard a lot about the restaurant and the food. Everything we heard about the great food and service was correct. We were offered a place close to where the music was to be played and refused that offer. We received very good service up to the point where we wanted to pay our check. Getting the check was a little slow but we didn't mind. We were visited by a Manager and he was pleasant to talk to and recommended other menu items for us if we chose to return. We really enjoyed our dining experience at 2 Johns.

    Microscopic goat cheese on salad overwhelmed by dressing. Special Chilean sea bass poorly presented, very thin cut and not flakey as described by waiter. Crab meat tasteless. Dish was cold. One guest sent his fishy salmon back. Cocktails were divine as was the crab au gratin.

    We had a very enjoyable dinner. The service was excellent and the food was very good. We both had steaks and they were cooked perfectly. The sides we delicious (mac & cheese & scalloped potatoes). The portions were ample so we skipped dessert. They were very busy that night and we had to wait at the bar for 40 minutes, but the bartenders were very friendly and checked on our table status for us every ten minutes or so. They also gave me a mini wine lesson on a bottle of GREAT wine they suggested that was not on the wine list. That was an added treat and I discovered a new amazing wine! Overall, it was a lovely anniversary dinner! (P.S. they had a piano player in the bar and he was great!)

    went there for my 10 year anniversary. the service was nice. the house wine i ordered was ok. food was good, except: i ordered Steak AU Poivre, one of my favorite dishes, however, when they served it, it was not sliced. i guess i need to request that next time, but at all restaurants i have ordered that before, it is always sever slice, and then in the kitchen, they drizzle the cognac/peppercorn/cream sauce. anyways, i will ask that next time. only real and legitimate complaint i can make about the restaurant was my wife;s dish. she ordered a chicken dish, and the spinach that came with it (WOW), seems they must have pored a pound of salt into the spinach while they were preparing it. i mean, it was saltier than sticking sea w

    My Husband and I went there for a date night. We arrived a little early and had a martinis and wine at the bar waiting for our table. The bartender was very courteous and answered all our questions on the drink specials. We especially liked listening to the live piano player. That is a very nice touch. Once seated our waiter Ron was fantastic! We started out with the calamari and for the main course both of us had steaks. It was so delicious! If you like wine they have an excellent selection to suit any pallet. We will definitely be returning!

    Had a girls night out and we decided to try 2 Johns. I must say the food and service was good. I definitely recommend the spinach risotto. My favorite dish of the night. It is a bit pricey. I got the special and it was $63.00 and that threw me for a loop. Expect to spend about $85.00 per person if you order alcohol.

We really enjoyed visiting with the two bartenders ( sorry we didn't get their names). The owner was sitting at the bar enjoying a glass of wine with a friend also. From there we were seated and the evening only got better. Our server was an adorable lady that was very knowledgable. The food was fabulous and the restaurant is beautiful! We had a wonderful evening and look forward to our next visit.
