Diner Reviews
  • "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!)"

Our water glasses stayed filled and our table stayed neat and clutter free the entire time. The steaks were to die for! We were so please with the experience."

  • "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 wife and I went here for our anniversary and enjoyed our time but left not completely satisfied. Our appetizer was wonderful and our entrée was good, but could have been better if our steaks would have been prepared as ordered. We did not send the steaks back because we were somewhat in a hurry."

The food is consistently excellent. John, the owner, routinely stops to say high and will give interesting info on the food and food sources and availability as well as other info. It's a great personal touch that is rare. We look forward to our next visit !!!"

  • "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 arrived early for dinner with friends. We sat at the bar to relax and enjoy a drink. That's exactly what we did, unwind from the day. 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."

My wife and I go there about once a year for special occasions and always look forward to it. Ask for Greg, he is a top notch server. My wife and I just went this week and we will be back next year"

  • "My wife and I celebrated our 42nd Wedding Anniversary on Tues. June 17th, 2014. We started off with dinner at Two Johns and as we arrived we noticed that there was only one valet guy and he had just hopped in the car ahead of us and we assumed we would have to wait but instead he pulled up to allow us to park in the door way and came back to open the door for my wife. Nice touch! We were led to our table to find a dozen red roses and a bottle of champagne as requested. The crab cakes were fresh and hot. The ribeye and the fillet were awesome! The blackberry cobbler a la mode was very good as well. As we walked out to give our stub to the ballet guy he was driving up in my truck! Nice!"

The salmon was prepared and cooked perfect - not overcooked and not undercooked! We ended our meals with crème brulee and bread pudding. I didn't taste the bread pudding because I was enjoying the crème brulee so much! Josh our waiter was exceptional!!! Will definitely go back and bring family and friends!"
