It was there last night so not surprised they were off.
We had to make sure we dined here one last time prior to their shut down due to COVID - we are hopeful (restaurant as well) that they will be able to reopen. Everything from the drinks - Delmonico Old Fashioned, Bourbon Sour (made with egg whites) and the Filthy Martini were amazing, the appetizers delicious, the steak tender, the scallops melted in your mouth and the creme brulee trio marvelous. Cannot say enough about this Madison staple - please re-open when this insanity is over. Downtown Madison needs you!
The food, beverage, and service were excellent,
although it was a little pricey.
Both of our steaks we wonderful cuts of meat that were perfectly prepared and served. It was a 5 star experience!!!
Donovan was extremely knowledgeable, super friendly and an all out top notch wonderful server!!! We really enjoyed our evening and the food (as always) was delish!!! We'll see you on the other side!!
This was my first visit and I was impressed. I had the Bleu encrusted mignon and Brussels sprouts in gruyere and bacon. Even the bread was delicious. Of extra mention was the adherence to COVID guidelines by both the business and the other patrons, which I did not see in other places in Wisconsin.
The food was delicious and fresh. The service was great. A lot of construction around the area though.
We had a wonderful experience! The food was delicious and the service was excellent. We felt very safe dining here during the pandemic. Well spaced tables.
Good food in relaxing warm atmosphere and excellent service
Johnny's is ALWAYS a great dining experience. If you want to be treated like royalty, this is your place.
My friend and I went here for the first time and had a great time. Our waiter was extremely knowledgeable about the menu and helped us pick some great drinks/appetizers. In addition to that, he was personable, funny and just an all around good time (wish I could remember his name now). Food was reallyyy good, I would definitely recommend getting an app, entree and dessert and a couple different drinks just to try everything for your first time AND you get a choice of potato with your meal, but definitely add on the mac n cheese and split it with everyone. You will not regret it!
This is a goto special occasion place for us, and we came here for our anniversary. It wasn't as extra special as usual, but a lot of that had to do with the covid situation. We appreciated being able to eat outside. Food was good as always, and we had attentive service.
We had an amazing visit as we enjoyed our dinner outdoors. Server Donovan was fantastic! Food was decadent!
Had my first customer meal here since COVID started. What a great experience! We shared a Caesar salad, both enjoyed perfectly prepared steaks and washed it all down with some perfect martini’s. I highly recommend this place if you just want to get out of the house for a great meal or a business meal - great staff and great food!
Waiter was very attentive and professional. He made sure my wife was happy with her drink and even had the bartender come to the table. He was very good too. Food and drinks were great.
Great food and excellent service!
Despite the distance between tables, a more rambunctious pair were sat next to our table. My enjoyment of the ambiance was less than desired, but that did not overshadow the wonderful service and food that evening. Get out and enjoy a delicious steak at Jonny Delmonico’s!
Our server Kerry was great, the steaks and sides were delicious and it’s a lovely place.
Everything was great. Burrata and Tomato was just awesome!
Server i think his name was domonic? Was amazing so GIVE HIM A RAISE he made our night better than it was heading. Thanks allot
This was one of the best ever dinners we've had!! The cosmo was perfect - not too sweet and flavored just right. The bread was scrumptious - and I don't normally even eat bread! We split the wedge salad with blue cheese and I was practically licking the plate to get every last drop. My husband, who is very fussy about his steaks, found his to be cooked to exactly his specifications. My tenderloins with mushrooms was delicious. The sides were incredible - probably the best hash browns ever (again something I almost never eat) - they were crispy and like mini French fries in the best possible way. And possibly best of all was the Brussel sprouts with bacon and cheese - melt in your mouth good. And not only did this food get us one fabulous dinner, but we both had leftovers for lunch the next day! We sat outside and felt very safe. Our waiter Terry was outstanding!
Johnny Delmonico’s is our “go to” restaurant for steaks. We’ve dined here many times over the years and have never had anything less than an outstanding experience! The steaks are always top notch—juicy, tender, and done perfectly—and all of the side dishes are delicious as well (even the brussel sprouts, which I normally detest). I had the lobster bisque this time, which was exquisite. The garlic mashed potatoes and the hash browns are always excellent as well. The service is always second-to-none; the wait staff are always exceptional and pace the meal perfectly. It’s always a treat to dine at Johnny Delmonico’s!
Everything was fantastic! We would highly recommend this restaurant!
Johnny’s never disappoints. Food and service were impeccable.
The food was amazing, had lots of wine options, thank you for social distancing, we will definitely be back.
Our waiter was Ben. Absolutely the best server I have ever encountered. Very knowledgeable about every drink and food item on the menu.
I highly recommend having Ben as your server when you make reservations!
We had the best experience at Johnny Delmonicos. Our service was exceptional and the food was outstanding.
Wonderful food, cocktails, wine, and service, and great safety standards! We felt very safe dining at a socially distanced table indoors. It was a very enjoyable way to return to indoor dining. Thank you!
Service was great but food left a lot to be desired. Steak was tough and had some fat in the middle as well. For $115 I don’t think I’ll be back
We loved the option to dine outside on a lovely evening. Food was fantastic and we always appreciate your wine list, but would love to see the addition of a Wisconsin wine, specifically from Botham Vineyards.
Julio was fantastic; warm, friendly, knowledgeable and most accommodating.
Look forward to many more opportunities to return to a long-time favorite.
Food was fabulous atmosphere was great and Julio was the best
Outside eating was safe while still having a great atmosphere. Kerry, our waiter, was great. He anticipated our needs and exceeded our expectations. Can't wait to go back!
Sat outside due to COVID. They did an excellent job. Food was fantastic. Both had the wedge, entrees were filet and aged strip, and then chocolate bombe for dessert.
Loved the casual menu and outdoor seating this past summer. How they bring both back next year.
Very awesome environment and great food. Would highly recommend.
Nice anniversary dinner
We were looking for a nice, romantic restaurant to celebrate our anniversary. We found it! It was very easy to book a reservation online. We were seated immediately, with a small view of the lake. The ambiance fit our "dressed up" attire just right. The service was AWESOME. Our waitress was very attentive and kind. The drinks and food were delicious. It was kind of pricey, but we expected that. Overall, I would recommend this restaurant, but perhaps save the expense for a special occasion.
I should add all of downtown was basically empty due to COVID and it being a Wednesday night. The experience might be very different under pre-COVID conditions.
This was our first visit to this restaurant and we dined al fresco on the sidewalk thanks to Covid. The cocktails were excellent and we shared an appetizer of mushroom caps stuffed with steak and blue cheese that was to die for! But that was the highlight. My wife had rainbow trout stuffed with crab. She loved the saffron sauce, but the fish was meh. My 6 oz. filet with bone marrow butter was very good, but certainly not the best I've had. And the two mountains of garlic mashed potatoes we received were kind of silly. We succumbed to the dessert menu and shared a "chocolate bomb". While certainly rich and chocolatey, it wasn't extraordinary. Our server Ben was very attentive without being overbearing, and definitely enhanced the experience, but while we enjoyed ourselves, we doubt a return visit is in the cards.
We had an enjoyable dining experience and appreciated the social distancing and masks.
Both my wife and I ordered Tenderloin Filets both asked them to be cooked Medium Rare. My 8oz was cooked medium and tasted old. It was topped with the Oscar topping. My wife ordered a 6oz and it also was closer to medium well. She had mushrooms as a topping. Both steaks were not even close to the normal quality we have received in the past from Johnny's. Would be hard to suggest this place to a friend in the future. You were not busy enough to have anything come out of the kitchen this poor. Calamari was outstanding. Crab Legs were very good. Sides and Brussell Sprouts were outstanding as was the service. Server was a pro!
