Nice place, good food, and good service. We will be back!
Delicious food. Prime rib and 5 cheese ravioli were phenomenal. Happy hour prices could have been a little cheaper but weren’t outrageous. Bartender and waitress were very prompt, helpful and friendly. One of the better meals we’ve had in Madison. We will definitely be back!!
All around excellent. The food was hot, fresh, and pleasing to the taste buds. My server was very pleasant and attentive. I usually can't make it to the desert but tried the Lemoncello cake. It was delicious. I will come here again.
Great Sunday brunch! Wide variety of food and the dessert table was amazing. Our server was attentive and we didn't feel rushed to leave. Very enjoyable.
Sue thank you for the wonderful review and recommendation. I am so happy to hear you enjoyed everything. I will be sure to share with the team. We hope to dine with you again!
All the food was very good, other than the steak. The steak was not seared (as it would have been in a high quality steakhouse), and cut was not of particularly high quality. Johnny's is a good Italian restaurant, just not a good steakhouse.
Steve thank you for the feedback. I am disappointed to hear your steak did not meet expectations. I have shared with the culinary team. I appreciate you bringing to our attention. I do hope you will consider dining with us again.
Outstanding Service and Food! Will certainly be back again.
Kels thank you for the 5-stars review. SO happy to hear you enjoyed everything. We hope to dine with you again soon!
This was my first time dining here and it was a great experience!
Thank you for the review. I am so happy to hear you enjoyed your experience. We hope to dine with you again!
My complaint about the service is that they couldn't find our reservation, even though we had made one through OpenTable and had a confirmation number. I was pulling out my phone to show them the emails when (fortunately) they found a table for us. This was supposed to be a special Valentine's Day dinner (the day after Valentine's Day), but it got off to a bad start. When we left, they muttered something about their computer system being messed up and had lost several reservations. Well, why didn't they say that the first time? Johnny's needs to get their thing together if they're going to bait customers with electronic reservations, and then screw them up. (The food and wait service were very good as always.) But the reservation fiasco marred the evening.
Peter thank you for taking the time to write your review. I am disappointed to hear about the reservation fiasco. I do apologize for the poor start to your experience. I will be working with the property and Open Table to ensure situations such as you have described can be avoided. I am happy to hear you still enjoyed your meals and received good service. I do hope you will still dine with us again. Thank you.
We had went for celebrating our anniversary and our experience was amazing. The service was fantastic, very polite. The food was so yummy, I got their filet Mignon with an added lobster tail and it was cooked perfect.. We cannot wait to go back!
Thank you for taking the time to write your review. I am so happy to hear you enjoyed everything. Great choice on the filet and lobster :) We can't wait for you to come back!!
Everything was very good. It was a very cold night and it was a little chilly at our table despite wearing a heavy sweater. My rib eye steak was very good, done exactly as I like it ("a little on the rare side of medium rare") and perfectly seasoned. However, it arrived at the table not really warm enough (and plate was cool). Salad was excellent. Wine was excellent and at exactly the right temperature for a robust red (slightly below room temp). Service was efficient and friendly.
Thomas thank you for the review. I greatly appreciate the detail and have shared with management and the culinary team. Feedback is always welcomed and helps to make us better. I am happy to hear overall you experience was good but definitely some improvements we can make. I do hope you will dine with us again.
Had my birthday dinner at Johnny’s. It was our first time dining there. The food and service were both very good. They had a nice wine selection that complimented our entrees nicely. Desert was good. We were both glad we went and plan 9n returning.
Tony thank you for the review and happy birthday! I am so happy to hear you enjoyed everything. I will be sure to share your compliments with the team and we hope to dine with you again soon!
Our menu choices were better than average. We all enjoyed good food. We scheduled a late lunch, but we still waited longer than normal to be served.
Barbara thank you for the review. I am happy to hear you all enjoyed your meals, but apologies for the long waits. I have shared with management. I appreciate you bringing to our attention and I do hope you will dine with us again soon!
Great drinks, service dinner
So happy to hear you enjoyed everything! We hope to dine with you again soon!
Reasonable prices for a steakhouse. Great wine selection...we will be back!
Brook thank you for the kind words and 5-star review. So happy to hear you enjoyed everything and we look forward to dining with you again!
We needed a steakhouse that was open a bit early on a Sunday to celebrate our daughter’s Birthday. It was wonderful!
So happy to hear you enjoyed your meals and thank you for spending the special occasion with us! We hope to dine with you all again soon!
Interesting menu. The toasted ravioli rivals anything I've had in St Louis. The drunken steak was to-die-for. Generous drinks. Been a few years since I've been there. I won't make that mistake again.
Hi Jon! So glad you enjoyed your experience and we are glad that we will be seeing you again soon!
Fabulous lunch with 3 co-workers. Not rushed or too slow. All of the food was exactly what we ordered and service was perfectly paced. We will be returning!
Christine thank you for taking the time to write your review. I am so happy to hear you enjoyed everything. I will be sure to share your review with the team. We hope to dine with you again soon!
Our server was absolutely incredible! Would come back just because of them. The food was also incredible. I will be back!
Thank you for the kind words. I am so happy to hear you enjoyed everything. We look forward to dining with you again!
We eat here about once a month or so and the food is always good. Great service too!
Vickie thank you for the 5-star review and constant support! So happy to hear you always enjoy your meals. We look forward to dining with you again next month! :)
This is our go-to gathering place with friends. We’ve never been disappointed in the service, food or ambiance. All are consistently excellent.
The menu is geared toward steak and pasta. Do yourself a favor and order our favorite, the steak. They are all expertly prepared, flavorful and tender. My favorite is the charred ribeye. Rare of course. Never disappoints. Garlic mashed potatoes, with skins in the mix, are fluffy and delightful. Dinners come with soup or salad. The soups are excellent, especially the bisque, but very filling so I usually go with a salad. You can’t go wrong ordering Caesar, spinach or house salads.
Come hungry, leave full and don’t be ashamed of the doggie bag because portions are large. Sadly I’ve never had room for dessert but they look good.
Old fashions are craft made with muddled fruit and excellent.
Thank you for the kind words and continued support. I am so happy to hear we are one of your go-to gathering spots. Makes us very happy :) Sounds like you have the menu down and know exactly what to order! We are so appreciative of your support and hope to dine with you again soon!
I ordered steak medium well and it came overcooked. But hey, I got a discount on it. Everything else is wonderful experience.
Definitely going back.
Thank you for taking the time to write a review. Apologies on your steak not being cooked properly. I am happy to hear they gave a discount. We hope to dine with you again soon!
Food and service was great overall. Only complaint is the bar staff, they ignored me for 15 and it then took 5 more to make two whiskey and pepsi's.
Michael thank you for the 5-star rating and recommendation. I am so sorry to hear about the bar staff. I have addressed with management. I appreciate you bringing to our attention. I am happy to hear you enjoyed your meal and hope to dine with you again soon.
They gave me the wrong type of steak but everything else was wonderful.
Rebecca thank you for the review. My apologies in regards to the steak. I do hope you will join us again soon!
One of the best establishments around. Welcoming hosts, lovely wait staff, great food!

I have been to johnnys many times with my family, and decided to go with my boyfriend. He has never been to a steakhouse and he was so very excited. The service was amazing, our seating was perfect, the dishes were delicious and the overall atmosphere was incredible, as always.

Very good steaks!
Victor I am so happy to hear you enjoyed your steaks! We hope to dine with you again soon!
We enjoyed our meal. The service was good but not great. My filet was supposed to be cooked medium and butterflying was an option but the cooked it to medium rare but not a lot of blood. There was a group of us and the server ask to bring the check and we all said yeas for the four of us and we got one check, so we had to wait until for her to break up the bill. The dessert was really good.
Thank you for taking the time to write your review. I appreciate the feedback and have shared with management and the culinary team. Apologies for the issues on our end. By bringing to our attention we can hopefully make the necessary adjustments. I am happy to hear you enjoyed your meal and hope you are willing to give us another try with hope you receive better service. Thank you!
Very good food, nice atmosphere, friendly wait staff, room was a little chilly temperature wise. Will be back as we enjoy the restaurant.
Dave thank you for the feedback. I am happy to hear you enjoyed everything. I have shared the feedback in regards to the restaurant temperature. We hope to dine with you again soon!
Great food. Convenient location. Excellent service.
Delighted to hear you enjoyed everything! We hope to dine with you again soon!
A busy Friday night, we had reservations a we seated on time. Service was friendly and efficient. 3 in our party ordered lobster bisque and raved it was the best they ever had. Two of us ordered the spinach salad. I thought it was excellent but the other in,our party lamented it wasn’t classic. Caesar wasn’t an option do to romaine recall. I ordered the lasagna. The serving is large and comes with tomato sauce on top. It was average and I wouldn’t order again as they have a lot of others great choices on the menu. Everyone else ordered steak. All were perfectly prepared and came with yummy garlic mashed potatoes. Lots of food and leftovers for all. The deserts looked so good my friend got one to go. A favorite restaurant of ours and I highly recommend it. Drinks are also top notch.
Thank you for the 5-stars. We greatly appreciate the support and recommendation. I have shared your review with management and the culinary team as you have provided a lot of great information. We hope to dine with you all again soon!
We enjoyed the atmosphere and the food. Service was Very Good.
Ted thank you for the kind words and 5-stars. I am so happy to see you enjoyed your meal and experience. We hope to dine with you again soon!
Service just so-so. Server should not pass plates between diners at this price point in restaurants. Food was good, but I've had better at this restaurant. Seating in front room off bar not great.
Randy thank you for the feedback. I have shared with management to use as a training opportunity. Apologies that your experience did not meet expectations. I do hope you will be willing to give us another try. Thank you again.
Food was OK but not WOW good. Portions a bit small. Prices were on the high side
Daniel thank you for the feedback. I have shared with management and the culinary team. We do hope you will be willing to give us another try. Thanks!
First time here, food was reasonably price for such a nice restaurant... Food was delicious and the atmosphere and waiter were great as well
Thank you for the 5-star review and recommendation. I am happy to hear you enjoyed your visit. We hope to dine with you much more :)
Early business dinner. We shared a crab cake appetizer (1 cake to an order). Very tasty. Bread arrived with the salads which is sad because if it had arrived with our drinks we might have eaten some. The waitress plopped it on the table and neglected to make the olive oil cheese mix. Maybe they don’t do that anymore. Steaks arrived as we were finishing our salads. We had to rearrange our dirty plates to make room for the entrees. As they cleared salad plates I suggested to my dinner companion that they rescue the silverware as they don’t bring a new fork with the entree.
Steaks were perfectly prepared and very flavorful. The mashed potatoes were fluffy and good. The food was 5 stars. I felt rushed with how fast the food courses were served. Not a leisurely dinner. This is unusual. As we were leaving the bar started to fill up.
Thank you for taking the time to write your review. I am happy to hear you enjoyed your meals. However, I am disappointed to hear about the service and feeling rushed. I have addressed with management. Definitely a training opportunity for us. I appreciate you bringing to our attention so we can make the necessary changes. I do hope you will dine with us again soon as we greatly appreciate your support!
Decent price and portions for what you get. I asked for my steak to be medium well and I got medium rare. Good service. Altogether a good dining experience.
Thank you for the review. My sincerest apologies your steak was not cooked to your preference. In the future please do not hesitate to send it back so we can make it right. I appreciate you letting us know. I have shared with management and the culinary team. I do hope you will dine with us again soon!
This restaurant is good if you want to get steak without paying a lot for it.
Thank you for taking the time to write your review. I am happy to hear you enjoyed your steak. We hope to dine with you again soon!
Great ambiance and very quiet which is what we were looking for. The food was excellent but you need to add steak knives. When I asked for one the waiter said the one on my table serving was for that. But it did not serve well as a steak knife. The waiter was a little over-attentive perhaps because there were few other diners when we were there. All we wanted was some uninterrupted time to talk.
Thank you for taking the time to write your review. I have shared your review with management. I appreciate the feedback so we can provide a better experience. I am happy to hear the food was excellent. We hope to dine with you again soon!
