My wife and I celebrated Valentines Day at Johnny's. We both had veal Oscar. It was delicious. The veal was perfectly cooked. It was loaded with giant lumps of crab meat and just the right amount of hollandaise sauce. The wine was a generous pour and a great quality for the price. The server William was very professional great service Finally the desert was a 6 layer dark chocolate cake huge portion. We ate half and took home the other half. I think it might have been the best tasting chocolate cake I have ever eaten.

Food was great but the service was not. We have been to Johnny's and this is the first time our service was not good. It seemed our waiter was "in the weeds" throughout the evening- not able to get second drinks, water not refilled; he wasn't able to check on us throughout our meal. Rushed at the end of the night- no coffee or dessert.

This was my second time at Johnny's Café, the first being with a couple of girlfriends during the Christmas holidays in 2016. The first time, their Frank Sinatra entertainer was playing, and he was wonderful. The food was also amazing. This time, another girlfriend joined me for a post-holiday get-together. Although it was Sunday night, Mr. Frank Sinatra was not playing, but that was OK, as my friend and I were catching up with chit-chat. Again, our meals were excellent. The only reason I rated the food "very good" was that my ricotta pie dessert seemed a bit over-baked. Everything else was delicious! Our server, William, was top-notch! Very friendly, good recommendations, and attentive. It was a slow night, only one or two other parties, which made for a quiet, extremely enjoyable evening. The decor and ambiance are lovely, somewhat art deco. I would definitely recommend Johnny's, at least for the off-season, and get a comfy booth, if possible....adds to the charm. I have not been there during the summer, but I expect it is hopping!

THe service was especially attentive and charming but in a nice, uninterfering way. Dinner was very good- not creative but well prepared standards with a little twist and reasonably priced- An attractive high end place with style. GOod for a date or a group .

Are experience was slightly annoying. We had a waiter who was waiting for his first. I have him a break on many issues. For instance he brought me the wrong dish. When straightened out the food was great. When it was time to pay the bill he was nowhere to be seen. After 20 plus minutes I have the check to a different waiter. I know it was his first day working so I give him a break. The food was great and I will be back.

Enjoyed a great meal Friday night. Generally we avoid the restaurant during summer season as it’s way too noisy and crowded . Shout out to William our awesome waiter. They have fantastic meatballs. Always some nice specials. I had veal parm on the bone. Was very good but a little too heavily breaded. Husband had seafood pasta special. He liked it a lot. Their red sauce is wonderful. It’s not a byo and we enjoy being able to order a cocktail.
