Great job on the outdoor space! It is beautiful and inviting. Barry is the best :) We will support you through carryout during the lockdown. Keep smiling and thank you for all the hard work.

Fabulous. We enjoyed a ‘last supper’ before the lockdown of December in a very chic outdoor patio built specifically for elegant outdoor dining. Food was amazing, proper, fresh. We are total fans of new Austrian fine food so I can say without reservation that the Wienerschitzel was perfect. Only a real Austrian can make it perfectly!! Apfelstrudel was one of the best we have ever had, even in Tyrol and Vienna we have not had such a perfect dessert. One can taste that there is no compromise here. Order the Gruener Veltliner white for a mineral/nutty perfect Austrian white wine from the house of Laurenz. I hope that they can open up soon for more outdoor dining!!!

It would be great if Johannes could continue with their patio setting/outdoor dining. The atmosphere was amazing and the food delicious. They were extremely accommodating and friendly at check in.

We were expecting sidewalk or makeshift outdoor dining space but was a pleasant surprise when we were led to our table. It was a beautifully decorated and lighted area, fenced, used to be part of the street but you really can’t tell (with rug, candlelight and everything). They did a great job on distancing and health protocol I think. Service and food selection were both delightful. It was a great experience.

Although we live elsewhere currently (we’re in escrow for a house in Palm Springs) we've been to this fine dining establishment time and time again for 20 years with every visit to the desert. The food is always superb, the service is friendly, yet professional, and their outdoor seating is comfortable and COVID safe. You must try this wonderful Palm Springs restaurant which has become a local institution! 10 stars! ( I’d give 20 stars if that were possible!)

Only rated ambience mid range because dining was street side due to COVID. We've eaten in their dining room in the past and it was very nice albeit a bit on the dark side.

This was our first time back since the shut down. It was as amazing as usual. So happy to see Berry (probably not spelling that correctly). She provided over the top service as always.

Went on the first night of the bar closures and restaurant reductions and was anxious on how it would be. They've taken all of the precautions necessary (more space between tables, accepting fewer reservations, etc). The food and service were outstanding. We're going through some rough times so I will continue to try and support them as much as I can.

We dined with guests from out of town. Table of five--everyone loved their meals.
Food arrives hot, and we all appreciate the use of noise baffling on the ceiling.

Much to my disappointment as a returning guest we were seated in the back dining room which has no ambiance. It was a 6:00 p.m. reservation which meant that a table in the main dining room could easily be turned over. I did not wish to make an issue of it before my partner but it is difficult to understand why we walked by a nearly empty main dining room to be seated in the back.

The server seemed rushed every time we interacted with her. The attention to the patron has gone down in the past year. Johannes used to have a European like atmosphere where the table was yours for the night if you wanted it. Server recited the special items in a rote manner and showed little or no enthusiasm for the Chef’s special offerings that night.

The noise level also has gotten deafening. Not a good place to have a conversation with your partner or your guests.

Wonderful place to dine. Service is excellent and everyone is friendly. The food is awesome and they have a great selection of wines, if you are not a wine expert, they will pair you with a nice wine. Prices are reasonable.

This was a lovely experience. I had the raw Brussels Sprouts salad and the Lemon Caper Chicken Schnitzel ... heaven! I am craving it now. One of the best meals I have had in the desert. I can’t wait to go back. For those that don’t drink - they also have a signature mocktail to help you feel special. I loved my meal here - and reservations were a breeze. The front desk was also very accommodating. Nice servers too. My only complaint was the bread and spread. Not a fan. Would have preferred a nice French bread with butter.

Service fair. Twice had to request items that were overlooked. Biggest issue was restaurant policy to not split the check. Found this out of the norm where most restaurants have no problem dividing up the check as a courtesy to their patrons.

This is one of our favorite restaurants anywhere in the U.S. We love Palm Springs and very happy to have a home there. Regardless of the season, we dine at Johannes at least once per month whenever in Palm Springs for a stay. Understated setting. Dressy or casual works. First rate food & beverage options. Wonderful stable staff . The Wiener schnitzel with lemon caper sauce is our favorite but many other great dinner menu options plus inventive nightly specials from which to choose.

This has for many years been our favorite restaurant in Palm Springs. Food is always consistently good, service is impeccable, and we like the intimacy of a smaller place. Not very noisy, we could converse across the table without problems.
