    The service here was some of the best I've ever had which is good becuase the steak was one of the worse. I really expected a much more tasty piece of meat for such a high end restaurant. I honestly would not have been able to eat it if they did not have steak sauce to give it more flavor. Stay away from the 12oz filet medium.

    Johnnie's use to be one my favorite places to go for a special occaision, but that is no longer the case. My last two visits have been very average, and that is not acceptable for the high end dining experience that Johnnie's is aiming for. My last two steaks were not even as good as what I would expect from Outback, the salads at Johnnie's are perfectly skippable, and this last time the service was very poor (couldn't easily get a refill on the water, and our waitress all but ignored us). The one saving grace is their Stone Crab Bisque, which continues to be one of the best soups money can buy. If and when I do go back to Johnnie's, it will only be to have some more of that delicious bisque, and I'll skip the rest.

    Went to dinner with my boyfriend and my mother..... we made reservations and still had to wait to be seated, while waiting we were seated outside where we were drowning in cigar smoke because of the other guest right next to us, ugh.... then the food was made with no effort, there were little bugs on the tables around the silverware... half way through dinner, the lights in the restuarant flicker and shut off completely, then come back on.... this place is falling apart!!! .... I would NOT recommend this place to anyone!

    My friend spotted Johnnie's as we were headed back from a day out. We booked an online reservations. Once there we found the staff to be friendly. We started on the outdoor patio which was perfect for 4 women who were tired of the Midwestern winters. Our server was outgoing and very knowledgeable of the menu and made excellent recommendations (we had a variety of different type of oysters - delicious happy hour specials). We had dinner inside - steak and pork chops cooked to perfection! I would recommend Johnnie's Hideaway to anyone visiting Orlando or living in Orlando. Although it said casual attire we got a little dressy (it was our last night on the town) we didn't stand out, nor did we feel overdressed. Thank you Johnnie's.

    . I was entertaining clients and made a reservation for 6.30. We arrived on time and was shown to our table. Our server was Missy we decided on the following. 1 Oyster array, 1 Crispy Calamari, 1 Fried oysters and 1 Macadamia Shrimp all starters and with the exception of the fried oysters, passable. The fried oysters were swamped by fries you may as well had an oyster and a bag of fries! The server was like a headless chicken. we had 2 x Stuffed lobster tails 1 sea Bass and 1 filet minion. The lobster tails were supposedly stuffed with scallops. They were over cooked to the point of being almost rubbery and the stuffing resembled breadcrumbs. Seemed like they were cooked and left standing under the warming lamps for too long.

    We 'discovered' Johnnie's Hideaway while doing a trade show in Orlando in 2013. We went there five nights in a row! We were so taken by the design, the service, the food and Dory the Manager. Together, they create a dining experience you just don't find elsewhere. We live two hours away, and look for any excuse to get back to Johnnie's.

    We've been going to Johnnie's for a couple of years (maybe 6 or 7 times) and this was the first time we were disappointed by the food quality. I'll spare you the details, but the server and manager (they were on top of the issue and very professional) wanted to make it up and did discount the meal. But we were there for a special occasion and I could have prepared a better and much less expensive meal at home. We will give them another chance in the future. I hope this was an isolated experience.

  • In Orlando for a convention
    OpenTable Diner Since 2005VIP
    Dined on 4/7/2014
    Had eaten at Johnnie's Hideaway on previous ocassions to the Orlando area and my wife and I decided to visit again. Unfortunately on this visit we were very disappointed in the overall experience and food. While our waitress was quick to come over and introduce herself and take our drink order, delivery of those drinks and our dinners took exceptionally long periods of time. As a result, our dinners came out late and very lukewarm. Presentation of the meals was below average visually. Several tables close to us had had their complete meals and had left the restaurant prior to us receiving our entrees. Given the plethora of available dining options in the area, my wife and I will be trying out some alternatives in the future.

    My co-workers and I made a reservation online, and requested outside/patio dining.The host was rude, no eye contact, and said, "We never know if you Open Table people are going to show up." Our party stood in the entry for 20 mins. and when I told her we requested patio seating. She said, "That's a different hostess, and your wait will start over again." She dropped the menus on the inside table and walked away.Our waitress was poor at best (New?).The two appetizers we ordered arrived at different times.Calamari was ok, lobster fritters were excellent.Entres were horrid in consideration of the enormous price tag.Scallops and shrimp were rubbery.Salad was lacking.We couldn't wait to pay and leave, which wasn't a very quick experience either.
