Loved our dinner tonight!!
Simply the best in town!
Great food, but door draft at the table they seated us at was uncomfortable yet other tables were open.
As usual Johnny’s on Fulton was amazing. Service was top notch but also friendly. Our only issue was one entree was ordered medium and it was pretty rare requiring it to go back to the kitchen leaving our guest plate less for several minutes. Long bone veal chop with mushrooms and sun dried tomatoes is my go to item and did not disappoint! We went at prime time on a Saturday evening so the restaurant was packed and a bit loud.
No complaints. Service was A+. Food was outstanding. Only complaint is that it was much too loud.
Johnny’s is a treat...we need to go more often! Old school service and authentic dishes. Martini, Veal chop,
Dinner with friends. Johnny’s has been there for a long time. It’s an old school fine restaurant. Always enjoy my meals there
Great homemade Italian food. Large selection of appetizers and entrees.
Great sauces and solid pastas.
Homemade desserts are amazing.
Fantastic food, service and ambiance!
We have been there before, and it never disappoints. This time was a birthday celebration for my wife and friends who had never been. Her steak was great, mine was, in my opinion, better. Our friends loved it. A good night for all.
Great spot, one of favorites in Cleveland. I try and frequent each time through town.
Great service and food overall:) We were by the heater in the side room though and it was cranking! No much anyone can do but to move tables and we didn’t mention it to cause any issues.
One of our favorite places to eat! Food and service is always top notch. Noise level varies but sitting in back room is best!
Wonderful as always. Favorite restaurant in Cleveland.
The service and food were fantastic, however my husband and I were seated next to a very loud party of 8 who were yelling while conversing for our entire meal....it totally washed away the experience that we were hoping for to celebrate Valentine’s Day.
As always, the service and food were wonderful. However, the noise level far exceeded the norm.
A classic restaurant.. Great food and service. Cant wait until my next visit.
What a great birthday dinner! The staff was warm and welcoming and even acknowledged my birthday. Large portions and attentive service. Definitely recommend.
As Always, The Best in Cleveland! Ranks top 5 Nationwide. Shhhhh keep it a secret!!
Update the restroom / plumbing. The smell of sewer gas is very off putting for a diner.
Classic old school Italian with a touch of flair and a really nice wine list. Service was spot on. Intimate dining in an out of the way location. Worth the trip.
The food and staff was just fantastic! Wish I would have ordered some wine. I highly recommend the gnocchi and cold-smoked filet.
Johnny's Bar offers the best food, drink and sevice on the West Side of CLE!!!
Great dining experience!! We will definitely be back!
We chose Johnnys as our son in laws 30th birthday. They ran out of both the appetizer and main dish that two of our party ordered. The waitress reassured us that the replacement dishes would be prepared the same and they were not. Both Lamb dishes were superb, however, the steaks were sub-par at best. They weren’t cooked to order. Both were ordered medium- one was extremely undercooked, I would say raw, and the other was well done, and similar to a leather baseball mit. Overall, the experience was mediocre at one of Cleveland’s “top restaurants”.
Classic old school Restaurant, long history and never disappoints
We went out to dinner with my wife, her sister, her sisters boyfriendon a Saturday night. We had 8 PM reservations. The restaurant has such a old school charm. The food was excellent and the wine selection was amazing. We started out with a round of cocktails. For appetizers, I had the stuffed calamari which was absolutely tasty. It was different from most Calamari and that it was served whole and stuffed. It was not deep-fried. My sister in law and her boyfriend had the buratta and that was quite good too. For my main entrée, I ordered the long bone veal chop which was absolutely tender. My wife had the Cornbread dusted Wallete which wasalso tasty. My sister-in-law had the veal Parmesan which was some the best that I tried. Overall the food was delicious and I would definitely recommend this for special night,
Excellent restaurant! The food was great from beginning to end. If is a small place with an intimate atmosphere. I've been hearing about Johnny's for about a decade. I would definitely recommend it and will be returning.
Service and food was excellent as always! We will definitely be back
A very pleasant surprise. It has a "neighborhood" feel with outstanding food and a lively environment.
Excellent as always! Cozy, fun and full of life. Perfect
Always a fabulous time at johnny’s!
Great atmosphere, love the people and the food ! Planning on going back many times.
Always a good time, good food drinks people.
