Lamb Chops and SalmonWe had a great meal. Our celebration was for Father's Day. The wait staff was courteous and knowledgeable. They were also very accepting of my daughter, who has some learning disabilities ( age 42 ). I thank them for that, especially.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMHovering waiterEverything was great, except for the hovering waiter, who tried to explain everything on the menu to us. He wouldn't shut up long enough so we could think and make a decision about the food. All we really wanted was a romantic table and to be basically be left alone for the hour or two.
The place is beautiful since the redo, but there are so many places of this same genre down here that are cheaper and offer the same quality food. We found it to be a bit expensive.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a wonderful dinner.We had a wonderful dinner. Food was excellent, service was very attentive. Only big problem was the noise level; had to really speak loudly to be heard and that just contributed to the overall noise level.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food, but very loud!The food was excellent and the service was spot on. I had the crab stuffed lobster tail and my wife had the chicken parm. We were very pleased with both of our dishes. We would recommend it on the food and service without questions.
Sitting just across the table from each other it was very difficult to carry a conversation. The bar was packed and the noise level in general in the restaurant was very loud. We might try some other places or maybe stay away on the weekends. I'm not sure if it's the low ceiling or glass front, but the noise level should be addressed.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMVery fun evening at Johnnie's,Very fun evening at Johnnie's, and the food was very good. Loved the decor and ambiance.5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMYou gotta go here....Great food, great service...great night. As first timers to Johnny's we had a fantastic night and for sure will be back! Our meal was delicious and the atmosphere was terrific....if you happen to get Chris to wait your table all the better. Perfect place!5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGood dinner again, althoughGood dinner again, although felt like waiter was a bit distracted while waiting on us.
My son had a seafood salad and said it tasted like they salted the lettuce.
Otherwise everyone elses's food was good.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMThe noise level was too loud.The noise level was too loud. Could not have a conversation with the people at our table with out raising our voices.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was superb and theThe food was superb and the waiter was so friendly and attentive. The only drawback was the noise.5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMunexpected surpriseWhen I heard cafe in the name, I thought it would be a small little neighborhood place but was pleasantly surprised to find a very elegant, modern layout. It had a New York upscale restaurnt feel to it. I had the chicken parmigiano and was shocked at how large the serving portion was. It was excellent. The only drawback was the exceedingly high noise level. We were seated closer to the bar and couldn't hear each other talking. We didn't mind too much though because we were busy enjoying our delicious meal.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMEarly bird gets the wormI took my friend, an 87 year old gentleman with quite a few dietary restrictions, to dinner. Although he is an exceptionally finicky eater, (he could only find a few things on the menu that met his needs, and those had to be tweaked), the staff and owner of the restaurant made him feel like a king. No request was a problem for this staff. My friend special ordered a simply grilled chicken breast atop garlic mash potatoes, that was beautifully presented, and his request for an extra side of marinara sauce, came in a bowl of its own, that was over-the-top delicious! I had the grilled seafood salad, also delicious, light and fresh.The whole experience was absolutely delightful--from the service to the decor- a perfect 10.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMHey good neighborhood restaurantI enjoy eating at this neighborhood restaurant. The staff is very friendly and efficient. The food is always well prepared and presented.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMDeliciousThe food here is delicious! It's not often when you go out with a group that everyone LOVES their meal. Seriously can not go wrong ordering anything off the menu. We went on a Friday, it is a vibrant atmosphere so if your looking for quiet, this isn't it. They have a DJ, bar and a mature crowd. Perfect for dinner then a few drinks. Service was excellent. I would recommend this place over and over again. It is a bit pricy though... But worth it.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was our second timeThis was our second time and we brought friends to experience with us. As indicated above, we loved it. The cuisine is fantastic. I had the veal saltimbocca and it was perfect- a lot of food, but it was delicious!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat menu and specials. FoodGreat menu and specials. Food and service are very good and fairly priced for portions and being at shore.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was ok. We eat outThe food was ok. We eat out often and love finding a new good find, but we were a little disappointed. I ordered the ribeye, which was mediocre at best. My husband had the veal chop which he said was good but not the best he has had. There are other restaurants around that are better. Our sever went outside to converse with another patron. Then, came to our table because he forgot what we ordered. For the price, we will eat at Chef Volas next time.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMLove to go to Johnny's. foodLove to go to Johnny's. food is always good, very nice staff, always attentive.

The service there is always excellent.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a wonderful dinner. StaffHad a wonderful dinner. Staff was friendly and very efficient.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMHighly recommend this restaurantHighly recommend this restaurant - Best Italian food in the Margate/Ventnor Area!3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat EntreesOverall, a good experience. The service was good; the wait staff not very professional, singing stupid songs and paying special, time-intensive attention to a certain (I presume frequent) customer. Entree and cocktails were exceptional but we wish we had skipped dessert. Creme Brulee tasted like a box mix in which they added milk and beat it, not the light, yet rich vanilla custard I'm used to. Key lime pie was average, nothing special. So, stick with the entrees and find another spot for dessert afterwards.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
