Reservations for Easter and Mother's Day brunch are open and we look forward to seeing you on these special days. Please note, on both Easter and Mother's Day, our brunch is served in our banquet space to better accommodate all of our guests and, consequently, we do not offer our regular lunch service on these days.

The moment you walk through the revolving door, you’ll catch the big city vibe from the sleek metropolitan ambiance of Johnny’s Italian Steakhouse — Olathe. Enjoy cocktails at our glowing neon Blue Bar with a custom granite bar top, or try relaxing in the lounge’s deep, white leather chairs. Johnny’s has the menu to match this atmosphere; you’ll choose from top-notch steaks, Italian cuisine, and seafood specialties. Our made-from-scratch desserts are as decadent as the surroundings.

We booked a table for Father’s Day dinner. Our teenage children wanted pasta and my husband wanted steak. We’d never heard of Johnny’s but the Italian Steakhouse sounded perfect. We were seated immediately, which I felt was amazing on a Sunday after church. Our waiter was attentive. The appetizer (calamari) had nice flavor. The kids ended up with shrimp fettuccine alfredo and my husband opted for the stuffed meatloaf. I think the meals were to have included a salad, but the food was out so fast we didn’t miss them and we had food left over so didn’t need them either. We’ve already talked about going back for steak!

We went to this restaurant for my daughters 19th Birthday luncheon which we reserved on Open Table and stated that it was her birthday as the special occasion. When we walked in, there was no one to greet us for several minutes until my wife stepped into the restaurant to get their attention. Were were then seated, however, the never asked for our name but we were seated at a reserved table. Since we were not checked in properly, we had to call to ensure the Open Table points were applied to our account by calling the next day.

We ordered two appetizers which were the calamari and zucchini fries. The calamari was greasy and the zucchini fries where not too crisp. For the main meals, my daughter ordered the four cheese ravioli which was just ok, the second was the drunken steak which my son enjoyed, my husband ordered the angus burger which was terrible as it was not cooked and falling part. Although they offered to redo or replace his meal with something else, he had lost his appetite and passed. I had the turkey avocado BLT which I found to be just OK which had too much butter on the toasted bread. As fo the service, they did not appear busy but yet our server was not attentive so the manager picked up the slack.

Except for my son, overall we were extremely disappointed based on the food and that my daughters birthday lunch was not a great success. Although we highlighted with the reservation that it was my daughters birthday, there was no mention of it by the restaurant.

We went as a date night the last night of our vacation in Kansas. The food was expensive, but tasted as if it was made at Applebee’s or something like that. The appetizer was good, but I got fettuccine Alfredo which was very expensive and tasted like jar sauce, and my boyfriend got steak with cheese crusts but it was so greasy and badly cooked, and so small for almost 40 dollars for his plate. The beer he got was advertised as draft and came in a bottle, also expensive. Our server was training, so that’s fine but the guy training her was absolutely useless and didn’t help her at all. Would not recommend, would never go back.

The food and the service was okay the calamari was excellent. Went there for our wedding anniversary dinner and was expecting something a little bit more upscale. We had a kid banging a plate with his utensils, kids talking loudly a few booths over, and and individual wearing a NASCAR T-shirt and flip-flops. Don’t get me wrong I love NASCAR just not what I expected to see for $100 dinner.

It was a glorified buffet and they had large tables in a banquet hall. Not great atmosphere. Plus, I had made a reservation and when I got there the hostess said I would have to wait awhile, like 20-30 minutes. So reservations at Johnny's on Mother's Day are sketchy. We did sit fairly soon but I believe it was because I expressed my dissatisfaction. The food was ok, some items were cold like the chicken strips and fries. It was pretty expensive and I could have paid the same amount and received better food, service, and atmosphere elsewhere.

There were only two parties, including ours, that were there for dinner so I expected we would get great service. I was incorrect. It felt like our waitress was upset or annoyed whenever she would come to the table. My two star rating is mainly based on the service as a whole. When it comes to food, everything was a little over cooked: calamari, rare filet came out as medium, and the chicken was cooked pretty well done. There are a lot of Italian style food locations I would visit before this one.

We often visit Johnny’s on holidays. This time we were visited with my husband’s parents the Saturday evening before Easter. Our service was uneven. My father-in-law asked for a glass for his beer. It took 2 requests before he received it. Also, his salmon was undercooked. We sent it back and that also took a while before he received it. The rest of us were nearly finished by the time he received it. I would say on this visit the food was good, but the service was less than great.

It's hard to recommend a place where the service is sub-par. We were not greeted at the host stand as she was getting tables ready and there were people ahead of us waiting past their reservation time for a table for two. While our waiter was very accommodating, waiting for food seemed to take long, and when our food arrived, our salad plates were not picked up. We waited awhile for the check. The food was good. We were placed into a banquet room with large round tables and bright lights. Not quite the ambiance I was expecting. Our waiter dimmed the lights upon our request.

Our host is the first impression someone has and with no one there that just is not a great start. Sounds like several misses on our end and major lack of attention to detail. I have shared your review with restaurant management to use as a training and learning opportunity. I do hope you will give us another try so we can provide you the proper experience.

The food flavor and quality was not good. My husband had minestrone soup, it tasted like vinegar. His salad dressing the house dressing was weird tasting. He had lasagna and it was pretty much sauce and cheese. The sauce was not that great. I had trio of filet. They were each supposed to be a different flavor but all tasted the same. They were each a size of a half dollar. I had a spinich salad. It was the best thing we ate. We went for my husband's birthday nothing was done for him we ordered the chocolate lava cake, it was dry and chocolate didn't even come out. It was paired with cinnamon icecream. Not good at all!! We will not be back. Sad because it is a beautiful place.

My wife and I decided to check out Johnny's Italian Steakhouse for our anniversary. She likes italian and i like steak. My steak was absolutely cooked perfect. Just the taste of the steak itself was unbelievable. I was very very impressed. Ive ate at all local steak restaurants in tge KC Metro area. This steak is by far way above any and everyone else's. My wifes plate was fantastic as well. A+++ all around! From the hostess to tue servers to the chef. It was all absolutely great. We will without a doubt be coming back on a refular basis.

Have been to Johnny’s Italian Steakhouse before and this was a Valentines treat for my wife. Service was excellent. The noise level from the music play was loud. Adjusted after about 45 mins. I had chicken prosciutto pasta and found the chicken to be on dry side. My wife had chicken perm that was excellent.
