20th birthday dinnerFirst time time visit for special occasion,beautiful restaurant with great food. Restaurant had special menu insert with Happy birthday to my daughter. Best of Talk of the Town restaurants!6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food and serviceArrived with our 8 year old daughter. Mom and dad needed wine after a day at the theme parks. Phil S. our waiter was
Phenomenal giving us a few good options and making sure out daughter wasn't left out either. The mussels
We're spot on, the filet was perfectly cooked, the grouper was a tad dry, but still very good. And the sides with the meal
Were good. The presentation of the jalapeño cake was ameateur, although the taste was good. Definitely be back to the
Hideaway6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMWOW!I opted for the oyster dinner and was blown away by the size and taste of the oysters. Johnnie's is a gem of a restaurant.6/10/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyable EveningGood food and cocktails. Varied menu. Our server, Russ, was very attentive, as was the manager, in an effort to make our dining experience enjoyable. It is a happy place. Everyone was enjoying themselves.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMService a plus; steak lacked flavorNice place off the beaten path. Service was excellent. My only negative comment is that the steaks lacked any real flavor, which was disappointing.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMBest meal in OrlandoFrom the food to the service this restaurant was outstanding. I wish I had saved room for dessert!
The steak was seasoned and prepared perfectly excellent flavor. The stone crabs were a meal by themselves we had them as an add on-great value!
Will definitely be back on the next trip.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food & Excellent ServiceI highly recommend the scallops. They were perfectly cooked and just melted in my mouth. Happy hour was also awesome with $1 Rockefeller oysters and giant shrimp cocktails. After all that food I still couldn't resist the way their desserts look so I took one of their ginormous coconut pineapple cakes to go and enjoyed it as a midnight and morning snack.
I can't say enough good things about the food and service at this place. Johnnie's hideaway is truly a hidden gem in Orlando.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMJohnie's is a very nice restaurant.Johnie's is a very nice restaurant. Someone took me a few months ago when I was in town on a business trip.
Since then I have take my wife who usually never strays from her favorites but this time agreed to try something new. She loved and and so did I.
I would highly recommend Johnie's to anyone!5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMNew Favorite PlaceI Went For The Raw Bar But Everything Was Wonderful. The Service Was Awesome. The Food Was Delicious. The King Crab Was Seasoned Perfectly. I Wanted A Coconut Martini AndThey Don't Make Them But They Came As Close As They Could And It Was Wonderful. I Loved The Effort. I Live In Tampa But Will Be Back To Dine Again Very Soon. The Entire Dining Experience Was Wonderful!5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ServiceOur server was very knowledgable of the menu and was able to help us choose what we wanted. The food was excellent.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMWe go to Johnnies and MoonfishWe go to Johnnies and Moonfish on special occasions. A little pricey but the food is good.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWe loved this restaurant andWe loved this restaurant and cannot wait to go again. Great service - fabulous food.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMExceeded high expectationsOutstanding in all areas. The fish dishes were great, service was impeccable and the environment was just right. We plan to return to Johnnie's every time we're in the Orlando area.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGraze Your Way Through the EveningWe enjoyed the place so much the first night in Orlando, that we ate there again two days later. We started with the Beef Carpaccio, some Frog Legs, and some raw oysters. The Washington State oysters were small, for $2.50 each. The carpaccio is loaded with shaved Parmesan, capers, and a horseradish sauce. It's very large, enough for 2-3 to share for an appetizer. They also make their own pickles (Fire and Ice), which are sweet, with a bit of kick to them.
My wife and I split a 14 oz tenderloin (only $33), and they were nice enough to cook it rare for her, then take my portion and cook it to medium rare.
We had a flaming desert, made with 151 Rum that was great, and the chocolate cake, that had 1 pound of chocolate chips in the frosting.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMA Very Good Alternative To I DriveWhen on business in this area I enjoy Johnnies Hideaway. Location, price and quality of food are all very pleasing. For a Orlando establishment near attractions one can feel certain that the dinning room and bar areas are very casual yet not over filled with families on vacation with children crying from a long day at the parks. For a special evening or a business diner with that special client, Johnnies fits the bill.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMThe way things should be done!This was like stepping back in time to an era where professionalism and quality were the standard in dining establishments. ALL of the staff were extremely friendly and courteous. I was addressed by name and each team member I encountered introduced themselves as well, including the manager who brought me an appetizer to try.
The bartender Marty was knowledgable, attentive and welcoming.
I promised to return on my next trip in July with my friends!5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMWent two times in same weekWe were visiting from New Jersey for 5 days and ate here twice for dinner. The food is great. Comparable to Capital Grille in atmosphere, price and quality. In a land of chain restaurants and tourist traps this stands out for those that love great quality food.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMYummmmHad the Fisherman's Feast and it was fantastic!! The salad and cheese bread was also very very good!! Linda was a great server and took care of our every need.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent for special occasionsWe met our friends from Iceland here and had a great meal and a great evening.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat spot. We always haveGreat spot. We always have to take our business group to Johnnie's when everyone is in town! Everyone loves it.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome food... Great staff...Awesome food... Great staff... Super friendly ...great menu4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMGood, but has been betterWe have been on Johnnie´s 2 times before, so we had hugh expectations. I must admit that the food was not so good this time, as last time. But it's still good food and service. What we don't like as European is a fixed 17% service charge !! A strange thing to do ! I think we will try other places next time, so sorry.. Noise from the road !4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMUNBELIEVABLE SERVICEChris our server was unbelievable had super food and wine knowledge and a fantastic personality. He was quick and professional. I will always request him as my first choice of server whether I go myself or refer guests . Thank you again Chris my sister and her husband were so impressed with you. Food was super!4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMWould Reccomend to eveyoneWe have been to Johnnie's a few times now. Every time we go we have be seated promptly and the service has been great.
The food is amazing and has always been cooked to the proper temp. This past trip the manager stopped by our table to offer us a free sample of a new appetizer just to get our thoughts. Very nice people and a very nice setting. Average meal with drink and dessert will be around $50 give or take.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMA really great dinner withA really great dinner with excellent food and service. Will definitely be back4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWe went to Johnny's HidewayWe went to Johnny's Hideway as a reccomendation from a friend. It was our 28th wedding

We never wanted for anything.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMNot really kid friendly.Not really kid friendly. they do have a kids menu and we did take our 2 year old but we could tell the receptionist was not fond of us having a child with. the food and the servers were awesome!4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Establishment.Excellent establishment, class act. Great food and atmosphere. We had a lovely time, even with a 3.5 year old though the scene wasn't conducive to young children, they obliged well while we engaged in a nice dinner on our vacation. Had just of great of time with my family as I did a year ago in a larger work related dinner.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday celebrationThe entire experience was outstanding.

Was my wifes birthday and she felt like a queen with the treatment4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMOur food was delicious andOur food was delicious and the server was very attentive.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was great but dessertsThe food was great but desserts need to improve a lot or remove from menu.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic PlaceI don't understand the negative local reviews. As a local looking for something different that we had not tried before, this place was fantastic. The food was all excellently prepared, the selections were extensive and, contrary to one post, our server was more than capable of answering all of our questions, was fully knowledgeable of the menu and suggested an excellent wine that was not on the wine list. Johnnie's Hideaway will definitely be a restaurant we look forward to revisiting again in the not too distant future. Laura was a professional who knew how to please guests and the management was interactive, making the visit even more enjoyable. The whole staff made us feel welcomed from arrival to departure.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent steak and seafood.Excellent steak and seafood. Pickles are amazing! Service and professionalism were top notch. Will go back next time we are in Orlando.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMWe visit every year on vacation,We visit every year on vacation, It was great! Hostess didn't seem to be able to find the reservation though but she sat us anyway!3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding dining experience.Outstanding dining experience. The Mixed Grill with shrimp & scallop scampi is truly outstanding. The Dayboat Jumbo Scallops are a wonder.
Members of our party requested the scallops blackened, which is (slightly) off-menu.
They came blackened, then pan roasted, as on the menu. Magnificent!3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMHighly recommend!Food and service were excellent! We will definitely dine here again!3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMA Hidden GemThe restaurant, which is located deep in a shopping center, is a gem. The decor is outstanding with lots of interesting spaces for parties and various gatherings. Stone crab is what brought us here and we had lots of it despite a poor season. Oysters in the half shell were also delicious. Apps all looked divine. My husband had a large pork chop which was perfectly grilled but seasoned with too much garlic so that was all you could taste. Dessert - a Florida baked Alaska - was flamed at the table with much fanfare and was delicious. I would love to have this restaurant in our neighborhood at home.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMHuge steaks - very upscale feelingFabulous steaks and Laura our waitress was top notch . Took my three kids (well behaved kids) and they were welcome. Huge steaks and crab claws were a highlight . Would definitely go back . Much more upscale than I was expecting .This is no Lone Star.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food and service (Kimberly)The food and service (Kimberly) was outstanding! I'll keep going back...3/8/2013 12:00:00 AMDon't miss Happy Hour!We went to Johnnie's twice, once for dinner and once for their Happy Hour. We took the kids for dinner and it was a big mistake! The kids' menu is limited and overpriced in my opinion. As for their Happy Hour, I would highly recommend eating outside and arriving with at least an hour left to enjoy it. Our waiter was awesome and the seafood appetizers are incredible. I would highly recommend it!3/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
