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.

Great food! Because of the Valentine's weekend, service was somewhat slower than usual. The staff was outstanding but slower than usual (more staff needed for these special dates). Food was well prepared and arrived hot. All members of our party were very happy with their food, the courtesy of all staff, and the ambience of the surroundings.

Everything was great with the exception we sat at our table 10-15 minutes without a server stopping by. The hostess noticed and came over to take our drink order and even offered a free appetizer. I appreciated her kindness for the slow service. After that, our service was very good!

We were a little disappointed in our experience overall. The restaurant was incredibly understaffed for Valentine’s weekend. It took 20 minutes just to get our drinks. My husband’s salad had the wrong dressing. We had a noisy party room behind us which finally a staff member closed the doors to. Our food took another hour to arrive and my husband’s pasta was not warm. My shrimp was tasty but a pretty small portion for the price. The ambience is lovely. I think the place has potential but our experience could’ve been vastly improved with prompt service and warm food. We don’t plan to return.

Great Valentine night meal with my wife. This is the 3rd consecutive year we have gone to Johnny’s Italian Steakhouse. Very nice setting and we weren’t disappointed!! If you have not eaten at Johnny’s Italian Steakhouse I would encourage you to plan a night out. Located in the Hilton Garden Inn and the folks who greet and serve are very good. Bon Appetite

Average overall experience. Restaurant was not busy and no reason to not have main dining open for more reservations from 5-7PM. Ambience was like a hotel restaurant and food was just average. Good value for the appetizers and entrees.

We were seated and 20 minutes went by. I had to get up and talk to the hostess to let her know we had not been serviced yet. The waiter reassigned to us was fabulous. The food was mediocre at best--chicken Parmesan was flavorless; the steak tough and dry. The garlic mashed potatoes were quite yummy.
However, they didn't mind when we sat and talked for 3 hours, so kudos for that.

Restaurant could not find the reservation when we arrived. I showed it to them on my phone. Waited a long time for food. Once it arrived it was cold, not cooked to the temperatures we asked for. Mashed potatoes very salty. Not very good at all. Tables dirty walls dirty in the booth we were in. Dining tables not being cleaned right away.

We were sat in a back room looked like a conference room with bright lighting, large round table with 6 conference room chairs (for two) sound was loud, and it was cold. We did not get bread until we noticed everyone else had it, and we then asked for bread, our water was empty until we asked our wait to come to our table and asked for a refill. Dinner was good except my steak had a large white thick tendon or something thru it. We had never been but did notice the actual restaurant looked nice. We made reservations ahead of time and there were open tables so I’m not sure why were sat at a table for 6 in a bright/cold conference room. I’m sure it was just a bad night.

The place is very pricey but not worth it at all. The night before the reservation, I got a call asking if we were coming. I definitely had the right day...they had looked wrong. Arrived the next night and got sat at a table where I felt I was on display. Not a cozy spot for our 51st wedding anniversary which I had noted on the reservation. The service was poor. Brought the main course before I was done with my salad. Delivered it anyway on the side to get cold. Never picked up any dirty dishes. Uptick on every little thing. So ended up being pricey for tough veal parmigiana, etc. No mention of our special night...but that's OK if the food and service made for an enjoyable evening. Only two other tables filled and the side room for a little party on a Sat. night. Guess the non attendance speaks for itself.

The appetizers were amazing!! We had the scallops and house chips. Unfortunately the other main courses weren’t very good overall. I ordered the Parmesan crusted sirloin and crab stuffed shrimp. The shrimp was not cooked at all and the garlic mashed potatoes and shrimp were cold. The steak was okay... a little tough. My daughter ordered the crab stuffed shrimp and again the shrimp was undercooked and cold along with the mashed potatoes. My husbands steak was okay, with cold mashed potatoes.

Johnny’s is a hidden gem! I had the horseradish crusted filet medallions and my sister had the stuffed pork chop. Both were OUTSTANDING!!! Truly great food and extremely reasonable. We shared the almond joy dessert. It’s mainly vanilla ice cream. Not bad but we wouldn’t order it again. The only downside to this restaurant is the wine list. We would normally order a bottle but the selections were dismal. Instead we opted for the basic Ruffino Chianti which was fine considering it’s only $8 per glass. The food is the star at this restaurant and the ambiance was quite nice too. Odd location but well worth the trip to Olathe. We will dine here again and often.

I have a feeling this is a better place that what we experienced last Friday night. Upon recommendation of our server, I ordered the filet medallions. Ordered medium rare and they came back significantly more done than that. Our bread didn't arrive until when we were almost done with our entrees, and there were some loud (most likely inebriated) gentlemen dressed for a football game (at best) that were a bit of a disturbance. The martini, however, was fabulous. I'll probably try it again, and hope for slightly better results.
