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

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.

Steak and salmon were both very flavorful, but undercooked. Center of salmon was so raw it couldn't be cut with a fork. Service was very good and timely. Ambiance was marginal at best, but we had table closest to hotel lobby. Tables closer to entrance appeared to have better atmosphere.

Service was very slow. Fish was uninspiring, too much sauce on the snapper - more tomatoes than fish; out of prime rib - which 3 of us were going to order at 7p on a Saturday night. Chicken farm okay. Salad good. tables next to us out and kept taking photos all night with flash. Not excited about going back.

Love the food, but don't be in a hurry. No matter when we visit seems the service is slow. Last visit got served by three different people because I don't think they could figure out who we were assigned to and even then had to wait for drinks, water and food longer then any table in section.

To be honest, our entire experience was mediocre. We arrived promptly at 11am with 8 people. Our table was ready and our waitress got drinks and appetizer orders right away. We then felt like everything from then on was sub par. It took a long time to order, and what seemed like an eternity to receive our food. It must have been at least 1215 by the time we got it. We specifically came for steak and not a single one was cooked correctly. Most were significantly overcooked, such as light pink centers when medium rare was requested. It wasn't extremely busy but our server didn't clear plates well or check in often. Some appetizer plates remained on the table for the entire meal, even though we stacked them up. She did ok on drink refills. Luckily, the flavor was still great, even though it was overcooked. Once finished, again we waited a long time for the check, I had my card ready when she finally delivered it.
I will go back to give it another shot, but am hesitant to order steak, which should be the specialty. I'm hoping that due to being a larger party right at opening time that this was just a one off...

We thought we'd try the place on restaurant week so we made reservations. We got there on time and were told that we'd have to sit in open seating in the bar where the bar tender would wait on us. At first we went in there and then my wife thought she would push the fact that we had reservations. 15 minutes later they moved us to a table in the restaurant. The waitress was not dynamic and just adequate,. It probably affected our perception of her that we had a fantastic experience the day before at Maggiano's in OP. Everthing was just OK.

We opted to sit at the bar to watch the Chiefs game, and while the bartender was very good, overall the meal was disappointing. Two of us had their steak offering, and we both found it to be tough. One had the Marilyn No. 5 chicken entree and she said it was great. I think the noise level in the restaurant itself would be very quiet, as it seemed there was virtually no one dining there. This could be attributed to the game, or the 6 plus inches of snow that had people not getting out to eat.

The very young hostess spent way too much time visiting with friends who were dining at a table near us. We shared an entree. They didn’t split it for us. Just brought us an extra plate. At this level of dining they should split it in the kitchen.

We came to celebrate the anniversary for several friends that all got married during the same week. The service was painfully slow. It appeared that our waitress was very new. We had to ask for water refills. She never bused the tables after we had the appetizers or main course. Then one of the bills was charged to the wrong credit card. We love the atmosphere and the food was good, service was clearly lacking.

This was our first & last time trying Johnny's. For this price point, the food & service should have been far better. Our server didn't know menu items, was not professional, never asked us to cut into our steaks to see if they were prepared correctly. Also, steaks were way too salty and potatoes were cool. We ordered appetizers (combo & crab cakes). We were sent scallops instead of crab cakes. My sister's steak was too salty to eat, then under cooked, then over cooked. She didn't get her steak until we were done with the meal. No comp offered except a free dessert which we didn't want/need.
