Good 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.

You 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!

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.

Excellent 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.

Everything 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.

Lamb Chops and Salmon
We 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.

The food was very good and our waitress was excellent. If you want quiet, request to not be seated in the bar area.( which I will do for next time) It was very, very noisy and hard to talk with our friends.
6/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
We always have a great meal here and it just keeps getting better! They've added a back bar and later on there is a DJ and dancing. Don't you love a place that has something to do after dinner? It's a one stop shop! :)

Great night at Johnny's
Went to Johnny's this past Saturday night.....Staff gave us the choice of a table right by the front door to shorten our wait or a brief wait for a corner table by the window (which we selected)....Our waiter Perry was awesome. We told him we weren't in a rush and he let us manage when we wanted our courses presented. Started with 1 1/2 lb chilled lobster topped with lump crabmeat, which was terrific. Had several entrees to choose from...we chose signature salad with seared tuna and Bowtie Rosemarie, with crabmeat. Great merlot added to meal along with seven layer chocolate cake. Johnny's has become a staple for us when we visit the shore!

Great all-round experience
We were thinking Italian and had been to Johnny's one time before. We were with another couple and their two teenage children. We were all impressed. The waiter was a cool guy who took nonchalance to an art form. He never took a note but remembered everything. All our drinks and dishes were very good to exclent. The portions were large enough so that some finished and some took some home. The decor was chic and noticeably non-shore. Free parking. Easy to get to. What more can we say. F

I was with my husband and
I was with my husband and another couple. We've been there many times before. The restaurant has been redone since Superstorm Sandy. The ambiance is beautiful. We sat in the room that converts to a night club.
We all loved our dinner. The one negative about the restaurant is it is extremely loud. It has always been that way. I know people that have walked out because they couldn't have a conversation at the table. I would have thought that when they redid the place, they would have put in some "sound deafening" walls.
Although the service was good, we were sitting in a table that they take away when you are finished eating to make more room for the
Bar crowd. We felt rushed at the end of our meal.
We would ask for a different location.

Very Nice Experience, Great Waiter
I booked on Open Table and also checked Johnny's website. I took my bf for his 70th birthday, his name is Johnny so I thought it would be appropriate. Rating on line proved this would be an excellent choice. We had a great waiter, great seating and food presentation was nice. Just a little disappointed that Open Table showed a prefix menu (which ended Mem. Day) and happy hour ending at 7P when it ends at 6P.
7/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
We have come to Johnny's several times when we come to NJ. We love the atmosphere, the food and the service. No matter how crowded it is, the service remains excellent. (you can count on a nice crowd, so make a reservation) I always manage to pick one of the specials, and there is such a variety it's hard to decide. Johnny himself comes out and tries to interact with the customers, now that is something you don't see any more. Love that. So in my opinion I would recommend Johnny's to anyone when visiting NJ. Thanks for a great time, always

Style & good food!
The decor is chic NY casual! The menu is so varied & different! The stuffed figs were awesome! Gorgonzola & wrapped in ham. My lobster tail w/ crab & sundried tomatoes was outstanding! So was the veal saltibocca. Wine list great. A little pricy but so worth it!!
Free valet parking too! Oh & a live singer doing Frank Sinatra songs.

Miami vice with great food!
Food and service were awesome. My party of 4 were pleased overall. The veal saltmbucca was the only dish that was less than perfect. Toooooo much thick brown gravy overpowered the dish. Decor is very slick, Miami Vice. Not my style.

This was our first visit to
This was our first visit to Johnny's. The décor, lighting, music, and ambiance was very nice. Food was good and large portions(pasta dishes). It would have been nice to include a salad with the meal. It was great to have parking across the street. One concern was the acoustics in the eating area. The bar was busy which made it difficult to hear during our meal.
7/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Wonderful restaurant. Food was fabulous. Drinks were great. Service was spectacular. Owner was walking around, which is great to see.
7/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was delicious and worth the unusually long wait. The place was crowded but hand more than enough servers. I think the problem was the kitchen could not keep up. Once the food arrived it was hot and perfectly prepared. The noise level was grossly loud. We could not have any kind of conversation from the roar. Definitely a distraction.
7/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always, always outstanding...
If you want an excellent Italian meal, this place outshines them all at the Jersey shore. Get your reservations early because the whole town knows how good it is.

Very good food. Very reasonable
Very good food. Very reasonable prices. Well schooled wait staff. Parking. Consistent. Not much else you can ask for. Have been there numerous times and will continue to dine there. Also good for breakfast and lunch.

Great food, service, ambience. you can't go wrong. it promises to be a great evening.

Best of south Jersey
We enjoyed a family spur of the moment dinner. Reservations were easy to get ....which is surprising in a seashore area. The menu was extensive and the "specials " recited by wait staff a mile long. Every course from appetizers thru dessert was over the top delicious and portions were generous. Can't wait to go back again....altho a tad pricey.

Johnnie's Cafe - always good food
As usual, the food was very good. This was actually our first time for dinner since they expanded. We usually go for brunch. My only complaint is the noise level. We were a party of 4 and literally could not hear each other across a small table.
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Truly excellent meal, but too loud
I can't remember a better meal! Our waiter was a true professional, I wish all servers were like him. Knowledgable about the menu, friendly, patient, committed to our enjoyment. Great menu with great specials, too.
ALL of the food was perfectly prepared (delicious!!!) as well as perfectly served. We never waited long for a course but we never felt rushed either. It all just seemed to flow so perfectly.
My only complaint was that the dance music in our room was way too loud. It was at "club" volume rather than "dinner" volume. I had trouble hearing the waiter, as well as the person across from me at our small table for four. In the future, I'd opt to sit in a different room.
I'll definitely be back, and I highly recommend Johnny's.

Great Food, Great Service.
One of the best restaurants on entire AC/Ventor/Margate coast.
Since remodel, back dining room/bar can be very loud.
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
If you haven't been to Johnny's Café in a while you are missing a great bar scene. They have remodeled and expanded. The food is still fabulous and I can always count on a great time!

Great dinner with our family for my mom's birthday. Our server, Chris, was excellent. Right on point, no nonsense, concise, brief and friendly.

Good food but too loud
The title says it all. The food was good but the ambiance wasn't. The waiter also forgot to bring a salad but overall the service was very good.
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Awesome but noisy.
Thought the food was great with more than adequate portions. Very loud though.
Get one of the booths up front. Very roomy and a little easier to have a conversation
with your group. Service was great and prices were below my expectations for the
area I was in and the size of the entree. Free parking was a plus.
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
great food, service, ambiance and consistency. The best area restaurant outside of the casinos in the area
10/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always a favorite
My family loves Johnny's. Brought a friend there for the first time for her birthday and she loved everything from drinks to meatballs to dinner to dessert. Will absolutely continue to celebrate special occasions and weekend nights at Johnny's.
10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had a very enjoyable evening. My Grouper with mussels and scallops was delicious and the broth was savory and great for bread dipping. One of our guests had veal and the other two had a trout and crab special which were also reported to be delicious although one guest did not like the skin being left on the trout. The service was a bit slow and disjointed and some of the menu items were unavailable but it didn't really bother as as we were not in a hurry. The DJ started at 9:00 PM but by that time the place was pretty much empty. Perhaps if he started a little earlier more diners would have lingered and ordered drinks.
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Johnny's Is A Gem
This is a classy and classic Italian restaurant in Margate. You'll find very good service and very good food, with moderate prices.
