Steakhouse
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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.
