Gabriella - thank you for the review. I am happy to hear you enjoyed your meal. We hope to dine with you again soon!
Went there for our 31st Anniversary and it was everything we were looking for wonderful ambiance, food and service. Price didnt make us take out a loan either. We will be back
Chris - Happy Anniversary! Thank you for spending the special occasion with us. I am so happy to hear you enjoyed everything. We hope to dine with you again soon!
This is an amazing place! The atmosphere was perfect for a quiet little dinner. Every dish was hand-made, even the desserts!
Thank you so much for the wonderful review. We will be sure and share with the team. We hope to dine with you again soon!
VERY Good steakhouse!!! I’ve paid so much more for mediocre steaks elsewhere.
Thank you for the 5-stars and recommendation. I am so happy to hear you enjoyed everything. We hope to dine with you again soon!
We were surprised, I mean surprised. The only down was the basic salad, not up to par with the rest of the meal.
My wife and I arrived early for our reservation but were seated immediately. The service throughout the meal was impeccable. The temperature and quality of the food was incredible. We are already making plans for our next visit.
Ron thank you for the wonderful review and recommendation. I am so happy to hear you enjoyed everything - we will be sure and share with the team. We look forward to dining with you again!
Excellent service and the food was very good
Thank you for the 5-star review. I am happy to hear you enjoyed everything and we hope to dine with you again soon!
We discovered this restaurant while we were staying at a Holiday Inn in West Des Moines. In our conversation with our server, we discovered there was a restaurant within 30 miles of our home, we love it! The food is delicious, the staff is very pleasant, definitely will go back...many times!
Colleen thank you for the wonderful review and recommendation! I am so happy to hear you discovered we had a location near you. We hope to dine with you again soon!
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!
Jan thank you for the review. I am so happy to hear you all enjoyed everything! I am so sorry the salads were not provided. I will be sure and share this with management. That was a miss on our end, but I am happy to hear everyone was satisfied nonetheless. We hope to dine with all soon!
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.
Thank you for the review. I am very disappointed to hear about your experience and how it did not meet expectations. I have shared your review with management and the culinary team. You have provided valuable feedback that we can take and improve upon. As for the service you received I am sorry it was not up to our standards. I have discussed with management. We are not taking your review lightly. Thank you again for letting us know and sincerest apologies.
Thank you for the 4-stars review. I am happy to hear you enjoyed everything. We hope to dine with you again soon!
Great place to entertain clients or have a business dinner meeting.
Matt thank you for the review. I am happy to hear you have enjoyed your experience. We hope to dine with you again soon!
Food was over salted
Thank you for the feedback. I have shared with our culinary team. I do hope you will give us another try. Thank you.
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.
Thank you for your review. I am disappointed to hear your experience did not meet expectations. I have shared your feedback in regards to the food and service with management and the culinary team. I do hope you will give us another try. Thank you.
Food was excellent and noise was reasonable. Short staffed so server worked very hard but very long stretches between visits to table.
Todd thank you for the review. I am happy to hear you enjoyed your meals but apologies for the short staff and long waits. That should not have been your issue. I appreciate you letting us know so we can address it. I do hope you will join us again. Thank you!
The only thing better than the quality and originality of our dinner was the service. Maddie was an exceptional server that made Mother’s Day dinner with my mom very special. Thank you!
Jenifer thank you for the wonderful review. I am so happy to hear you enjoyed everything! I will be sure and let Maddie know your kind compliments. We hope to dine with you again soon!
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.
Thank you for your review. I am disappointed to hear your experience did not meet expectations. I know Mother's Day is meant to special and I apologize for not delivering. I have shared your review with management as I think there are good learning opportunities. I do hope you will be willing to give us another try. Thank you.
We waited for almost 15 minutes after we were seated and no one ever came to wait on us. We left at that point.
I am very disappointed to hear about your experience. I am very sorry our staff was not more attentive. This is unacceptable. I have shared with management. I appreciate you letting us know and I do hope you will be willing to give us another try.
One person in our party had the monte Cristo sandwich, and it was extremely unique and very good… Everyone at the table tried it and loved it. I had the chefs pasta special, and it was very good as well. One of my favorite places to eat!
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.
This was an Easter brunch buffet. The quality and variety of food selections was very good. Food items on the buffet were refreshed in a timely manner. Service was good considering it was a buffet.
The Easter buffet was a wonderful experience. Our table was ready and decorated nicely. The food was delicious with a wonderful selection. The waiter was attentive and did a great job of being friendly but not overbearing.
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.
Great food + service. Definitely a $$ - $$$ restaurant (listed as a $)
I'm sorry, but I wasn't expecting much from a restaurant attached to a hotel. But was I surprised! The food flavor, plating, quantity, were all outstanding. We had 6 in our group and everyone was pleased with their dish. #highlyrecommend

Thank you for dining with us and posting your review. We are so happy to hear you enjoyed your experience and we look forward to dining with you again, soon!
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.
Amy - thank you for taking the time to post your review. I want to apologize for how your evening went. 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. Thank you again.
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.
Thank you for the review. I have shared your comments in regards to the music with restaurant management. I am happy to hear you did enjoy your meals and hope to dine with you again soon!
