  • Try the cedar plank salmon!
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 11/20/2014
    Melissa was our waitress and made certain my wife and I had a wonderful time in our second visit to Johnnie's while traveling from Texas. We returned specifically for the North Atlantic cedar plank grilled salmon with broiled parmesan cheese and the chef did not disappoint. Melissa let us know the chef is originally from Jamaica and trained at Cordon Bleu. At the conclusion of dinner, we learned that Johnnie's showed their support of the military in our bill, for which we were grateful. We would be delighted to treat ourselves to another dinner at Johnnie's.

    As an out of towner, when we visit O-Town we look for where the locals eat. Johhny's Hideaway is one of those finds. The interior is a marriage between a McCormick & Schmick and Spago. Waiters in black & white tuxedo like clothes makes the whole experience amazing. The menu is an eclectic mix of the best aged prime beef to fresh seafood to Veal Parm with bone-in. And the wine list was excellent. A definite recommendation for any occasion.

    My steak was cool and my fries were cold. Our waiter must not have been paying attention to when the good was ready because this should not have happened. Or they should have good runners to bring the food out hot and fresh.

    Every year we stay at the Grand Cypress And every year we come back to Johnnies Hideaway. Good food, good service, and only a quick trip from the hotel. The center its located in is always packed, but Johnnies separates itself with a better atmosphere and quality of food and service.

    We got what we expected. I had read reviews and ask some folks around our Hotel and, we heard only good things. We where a little disappointed with our server, but it was corrected immediately to perfection. If you know what good food is, this is the place to go to! I will mention it to all my friends and family and hopefully come back and bring a family group for a wonderful dinner experience

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014

    Some of the best wine we ever had. Great food! Service was excellent! The waitress was very knowledgeable on the entire menu. She recommended the grouper over the sea bass and she was right. A little pricey, but it was mouth watering fantastic. We will definitely go there again when we visit the Orlando area in the future. I give it 5 stars and 2 thumbs up.

    Dined on 11/7/2014
    We celebrated our 50th wedding anniversity that day. When we arrived at the restaurant we were seated at a table, and two minutes later the young lady that seated us came up to us and said that we were at the wrong table and would we follow her. She took us down to a table for two that was set up for us with orchids on the table. That was the start of the best evening. The food and staff were just out of this World. Melissa our waitress just could not do enough for us. We would recommend Johnnie's Hideaway to everyone. Thank you for nite that we will not forget. J&N

  • Disappointing & Unimpressive

    I was looking for a nice steak and seafood restaurant in Orlando to treat my wife and entertain a European friend for our last night in town. After an OT search I selected Johnie's Hideaway. To my surprise my friend had dined their with other business clients earlier in the week and advised me that she thought the service was "confused". However, she said the food was "adequate" and she'd be willing to give it a second chance. (anyone can have a bad night once, right?) Unfortunately for us; there was not much improvement this visit. Service was terribly slow and inattentive; the steaks lacked flavor, and the crowd noise (it's a big place) was too loud to enjoy the experience. Next time I'll opt to stay hidden from Johnnie's.

    Ordered my ribeye medium. It was initally served blue. A significant miss. Sent it back and it came back rare. A significant miss considering it was second attempt. Sent it back again and it finally was a medium. I would have thought the chef would have got it much closer for the initial order. To their credit, the manager did openly acknowledge they got it wrong and offered complimentary dessert. Notwithstanding the miss, the steak was very good and quite substantial. Couldn't finish it so took it back to the condo and had it for breakfast the next morning. It was still very good.

    In Orlando for business. Wife and I looked for somewhere other than the normal. The waitress was wonderful and very helpful. She placed a small bowl of pickles on our table. I was a bit confused why they have these pickles...until I ate one. They are great! We ordered a few different appetizers... all were good. Salads were very big. I ordered a 12oz filet. It was cooked a little under the requested medium but not enough to send back. We ended up with way more food than we could eat. Would certainly go back again if for nothing other than to get more pickles.

    One of Orlando's best restaurants to be sure. The food and service are outstanding. While it's not the best place for children, that's one of the things we like best about it. Most restaurants in Orlando cater to families. Johnnies is an upscale restaurant catering to adults from the decor to the menu. It's on our list of "have to go" places when we're in the area.

    Great service. Food has slipped. Salad not much flavor, dressing was almost non existent and we don't like a lot of dressing but it was bland. Steak not the usual outside crisp char-almost as if grill was not heated enough and steaks were a bit too spiced for our flavor. Would give it another try as past experiences were worth it.

    We arrived in Orlando just as stone crab season opened, and Johnnie's was the only place that had them...so off we went. We weren't disappointed. The crabs were some of the best we've ever had, and the service provided by Justin was terrific. We will definitely return whenever we are in the area!

    The food was excellent fine dining with an naval, wood and comfortable seating inside. However, when we arrived we were given the choice to be outside. This was a seat yourself area with plastic folding tables and rusted outdoor furniture not worthy of this type of restaurant. We should have been told that before wandering around looking for a nice table, which we never found, then having to return inside to be reseated. The difference in the two locations is out of balance. The meal was excellent and we will return, for inside seating!

    The trio of butter-roasted, diner-plate-long Madagascar shrimp are divine. The trigger fish, somewhat like Grouper - is superb. The stone crab claws could have used a bit more seasoning; they're rather pricey this season. The drinks and draft beer selection are nice. All-in-all, a great spot for wonderful, fresh seafood. We went 2 days in a row during our last visit to Orlando. It's very worth the traffic nightmare leaving the restaurant parking lot.

    My wife and I went for a night out. We started at the outside bar for drinks and went inside for dinner. The waitstaff was very attentive and pleasant. The food was brought out timely - not too fast or slow between courses. My wife and I both had steaks and a salad. The food was excellent. Well presented and a joy for the taste buds. We were too full for dessert.

    I asked the waitress if there was any issue getting tuna well done as I can not eat undercooked/raw food. She assured me there was no issue. My tuna was delivered rare. The manager asked if it could be reordered and I declined as my dinner companion already started eating his meal and I didn't want to have him have to wait for me. I ate my baked potato and called it a night. Some chef's don't like to or refuse to cook tuna well, that is why I asked. The server was nice as well as the manager but at this upscale place I would have though getting this right the first time, or letting me know they could not honor my request shouldn't have been an issues. They were not busy at all.

Great food, especially the seafood, impeccable service and an amazing bar. I will be back!!!!!!!!!!!! Johnnies is one of the Talk of the Town group but I think it separates itself very well and is the best of them.
