Very excellent food and service. I wish I had known on previous visits that the schnitzel can be prepared UNbreaded.

Food was superb, as usual. The endive salad was especially good. I tend to go for the schnitzel with lemon and capers--really excellent. Finished off with beautiful berries served with a raspberry sorbet. Service was attentive as well. The only negative was an adjoining party of eight, who got very loud as the evening progressed, and really detracted from the pleasure of the evening for the other diners. Oh well....

Favorite local PS festaurant, from classic genuine greeting by George, the best cocktails by Stephanie accompanied with delightful conversation, the fabulous sntzel and other epicurean dishes, salads and deserts, Johanne has put together a team that dazzles locals and visitors alike. You can't go wrong at Johannes!

This restaurant has excellent food prepared with a German accent. The schnitzel is their signature dish and is as good or better than any I have had in Germany. The menu is diverse with something to please every one. It is upscale dining although it can be very noisy when full.

As always, loved the food and the server was great.

We did get put in the "back" room, which has no windows and no real ambiance, and I expressed we would prefer to sit in the main dining area, but the man that seated us said we would have had to make a reservation at least 2 weeks ahead to do that, which I know is not the case.

I also specified in my reservation that it was to celebrate an anniversary and a birthday, and they must not have read that as nothing special was done or mentioned.

Lastly, the seating is very uncomfortable, especially for long periods of time.

I'm normally thrilled to eat here as the food is really amazing, but the attitude was a bit odd, and not appreciated.

We found the menu items varied and interesting. The entre portions were generous. Both starters were good (smoked Trout and Bavarian meatballs). The desert sampler was not good. Runny Creame Brule with 1/8 brittle crust, Chocolate Mouse with Cinnamon not sweet and a Tiramisu that was jelly like. Prices are higher than other Palm Spring restaurants for similar food. The service was about twice as slow as any other restaurant I have been to in Palm Springs. Don't be in a hurry as you will have plenty of time to let your food settle before the next course arrives. The staff were friendly. The wine list had a large selection.

Don't let its location in what looks like a little strip mall dissuade you! Johannes provides some of the best dining in the desert. Nothing is better and very few places are anywhere near as good. We love the main menu, but it's also broken up with a terrific selection of specials and a whole list of classic Weiner Schnitzels (the chef is Austrian). The wine list isn't expensive, and an emphasis has been placed on what drinks well with dinner. We have eaten here at least a hundred times in the last ten years and Johannes and have never had anything less than a terrific meal and tremendously good service.

The spetzel appy is amazing. The schnitzel (had the Jager) is so good but it’s a huge portion so be prepared to come with an appetite. The other person with me had the scallops and it was really good! A little pricey for 3 large sea scallops though, should have been 4 for the price. The service was excellent! Will definitely go back to try other items on the menu.

I've been eating at Johannes for many years, and consider it one of my favorite restaurants, not just in Palm Springs, but anywhere! From ambience, to service, to food, I have nothing but praise. While tourism is often key to success in a locale like PS, Johanne's appears to thrive by catering to the locals. Not so say tourists are not welcome, but just a sign of how good they are that the local population seems so supportive. You can't go wrong here.

Johannes is dependable: always good food, always good service, always a nice welcome from George. Ordinarily I would check that it's "good for quiet conversation, but not this last time: they were busy, we were seated at the back close to the kitchen, and apparently the kitchen staff were signalling either their energy or their unhappiness by making the loudest din I have ever heard in a white-tablecloth restaurant.

We have been numerous times and are big fans. The other night seemed a bit "off". Firstly we sat in the back room which has zero atmosphere and is especially noisy. I had requested quiet and was told the back room was quieter-Not So.
The service which we usually find very good was a step down from usual. I cant blame the waitress she took care of the entire room by herself. drinks came after the Appetizer and everything was generally much slower than usual. Maybe johannes should be there in the evening and leave the Lunch to others.
