Diner Reviews
  • "We took our teenage daughters to Johnny's for a family dinner and we had a great time! Staff was very friendly and attentive. Enough variety on the menu, not only the standard burger. Will definitely be back for more; loved it!"

  • ".....one wished could be found in every hood! What a find, where one can unwind and fine dine or just alight and grab a bite! To date, haven't had a plate that was not delish! A few items not to miss..... Grilled Romaine Cesear, Yummy fried chicken--Johnny's way, any fish dish will not be amiss. Oh and the service, right on!"
    Dined on 7/22/2014
  • "The food was really below what it should have been. A trip to the Cheesecake Factory or CPK would have been much better. My wife's salad was pathetic and my salmon had no flavor. The tables around me were concerned that their food wasn't prepared properly, etc.... just seemed not to be so good. Probably would not go back again."

  • "Having dined there 3 times, I am afraid that the place will not fit the bill as a neighborhood gem. We are fine paying higher prices for good food, esp if the portions are decent, & service is attentive. But paying higher prices & then being served very little food as well as not feeling a welcomed connection with the waitstaff is not so fun. Farm Cobb was 15.50, hardly filled up the plate & was slathered in dressing. Kids' menu needs tweaking, it's really not that much food for the price. Also, they do not list mac-n-cheese on the kids' menu but have it on the main menu. Wonder why? We are holding out that Johnny's can iron out some wrinkles as it settles into the hood. For the money we've spent so far, we'd rather go upstairs to P Louis."

  • "This was the first time that we were able to get a parking space on Saturday PM. Service was a little confusing since several servers were working together. After our issues were settled, the salmon and swordfish were outstanding. They rewarded us with a slice of cake to take home to make up for the confusion. In my past visits, I have always been pleased with the food choices. I plan to return to try the 55 cent cocktail. Stay tuned!!"

  • "Try the fish taco appetizer was amazing and the selection of wines is spot on."

  • "Good reliable spot for lunch. Not an exciting or creative menu but well prepared in a pleasant, if noisy, setting."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "We needed a place to have dinner with two old high school friends and decided on Johnny's. Food and service were perfect. It was a quiet Monday night and it felt like we had the place to ourselves. Perfect for reminiscing over old times. When we finally left Johnny's we realized we were the last customers in the place, but we were never rushed to leave and the wait staff greeted us with smiles and kind comments as we made our way out. The manager even took extra time to make sure we got a good photo of the reunion group before we left."

  • "We ate on the late side & were surprised that the service was slow. But otherwise, had a fine meal & would return, maybe on the earlier side next time."

  • "Great, food and service. Staff helped find quiet table near bar TV, so elders and FIFA fans with us were both happy. Foodie friends from Chicago happy, especially with cherry pie. Quiet for the holiday 4th."

  • "You need a better sign out front. Food was good but the down stairs stone wall place is better. A nice place for a work lunch."
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "Knowledgeable and attentive wait staff here is unbelievably consistent. They all know and care about the content and cooking of each disk as if they were chefs in training. We always feel welcomed and sincerely attended to. Food is innovative and never ordinary which can be a problem for some who get something quite different from what they imagined. For me, this is the perfect dining experience."

  • "Great Food And Service. Even Though Delivery Was Slow, It Was Worth The Wait."
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "For a restaurant that focuses on seasonal offerings I was shocked in the lack of vegetarian/vegan friendly options. Even the waffles had bacon tucked in to them, leaving two egg options for vegetarians and nothing outside of oatmeal for vegans. The server also seemed to be half-asleep as he was thrown when questions regarding ingredients were asked and was unable to offer suggestions for those of with allergies."

  • "Great spot for brunch! We loved the BLTA and cheeseburger. Bacon waffle was ok--not bad; just ok. We also loved the chai latte and cappuccino!"
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "Johnny's keeps getting better and better on each successive visit. The kitchen really has hit its stride in its menu and the service is spot on. It's already my favorite spot for breakfast & breakfast meetings, but the dinners are winning me over as well."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "This was our first time at Johnny's. We stopped in for lunch on a Saturday afternoon. I had the curried shrimp on a bed of greens and the slaw. Excellent! My husband had the burger and fat fries which were very good as well. We look forward to having dinner in the future."

  • "Was pleasantly surprised. From start to finish, one of the best dining experiences I had ever had."

  • "I have been to Johnny's once before for a business meeting. I love the beautiful modern ambiance and the service is always friendly! The kitchen is open so you can smell the deliciousness before you even get your meal! Quiet enough for intimate dinner but not stuffy that you can't enjoy your group outing. The food is always fresh and delicious (tried vegetable spring rolls, guacamole, handmade chips as appetizers). Tried the salmon the first time and that why I came back the second time! The pitcher of house made sangria was perfect for the girl's night as well! So much to enjoy. I will be back :)"

  • "We had out of town visitors from NYC and they really loved the ambiance AND the food!"
    Dined on 6/16/2014
  • "The food has gone steadily downhill on the basics since Johnny's opened. Some of the tastier offerings seem to have disappeared and over reaching combos without regard to the end product seem to have taken their place. One thing is for sure: they are incapable of serving good, hot coffee. The coffee comes luke-warm in a huge thick cup, and since (they say proudly) no microwave is on the premises, you just have to put up with that. Moreover, the coffee tastes awful and is so dark that no amount of cream will smooth it out. This is an easy thing to fix. I noticed this last time that the breakfast crowd is WAY down. This coffee situation has got to be a contributing factor. Also: no waffles for breakfast, Just for lunch? c'mon!"

  • "The menu is interesting at best and the service so so. Have eaten there several times and each time I have an issue (service, food or all around experience). Sorry to say its just not worth it."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "The place was a lot bigger than I'd imagined. And the food was really good, if not a bit on the expensive side for a neighborhood spot. But we liked it and will return. Tortilla soup was hot and spicy with the right amount of tortillas and chicken. Turkey burger was fine. The kids liked their food too - but could have eaten a bit more than was given."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "A week ago, we visited Johnny's during the summer months and were very please with the salmon dish. Delighted to sit where we requested, delighted with the service and the dinner was scrumptious. This week, we decided to revisit Johnny's to try another meal. We sat at the same table which we requested and were greeted by a smiling waiter. I ordered the stir fry beef which was described as short ribs meat. My husband decided on the turkey burger. We were both similarly disappointed with our meals. Left this message because I thought the chef might be interested in knowing our experience. Hope the meat is falling off the short rib bone next time. What can you say about turkey burgers?"
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "We were delighted to find that they had a lot of gluten-free options that were clearly marked on their regular dining menu. We had two kids under 4 and they managed well at the restaurant. They even had free lollipops at the end that helped my kids hang on a few extra minutes at the end of a father's day dinner with granddad."

  • "We enjoyed delicious fish of the day- drum with Snap peas and a light citrus sauce. Service attentive without being intrusive. Booths are comfortable."
    Dined on 6/10/2014
  • "My chicken salad was fabulous. My husband had the porkchop. Dry and the potatoes were dry. Would not order that again. Waitress forgot our appetizer and didn't even notice. We asked another staff member who got it and apologized. Well go back. I think it was just a busy night. "

  • "Johnny's is a great place to meet up with friends for dinner. The front room, however, is NOT good for that. I thought that by booking early for a table for six, we would be placed in the nicer dining rooms. Not so! I suppose I will have to request that if we go back. The food is delicious, and the wait staff quite good, even though we had a newbie. I just felt like I was in a fast food/family place rather than a nice restaurant for adult friends. Might go back if I can request the back rooms. The overall three stars is for the front room. It's much nicer in the back!"

  • "We cannot say enough good things about our dinner at Johnny's with another couple. We were graciously greeted and offered seating options. We chose a booth in the back to allow for better conversation. Drinks were served promptly and were just right. The food was perfect for all. Our waitress was a gem."
