Our experience was great, but started off terrible. A couple at a nearby table had decided to watch an action movie on their phone while they waited for their food. We asked to be moved to a different table, which they did quickly,for which we were grateful for. Why would anyone watch a movie in a nice restaurant loud enough for half the room to here? And why didn’t staff put a halt to the disturbance. We were glad they accommodated us, but felt sorry for the other six tables that still had to listen to the noise on Valentines Day.

My wife asked for a medium well steak and it came out almost medium rare. The noise was pretty echoy and had a hard time hearing my spouse talk to me. Waitress was really good on checking with us, but got the feeling like she was trying to hurry us a little with getting out of there. We were wanting a desert and were not offered one. Just brought us a check after we finished our meal. For 2 people for over $100.00 for a bill, was a little disappointing in what we ended up getting.

However, on the positive side, the wine was excellent and was fairly easy to get to the location.

Our service was excellent. Bartenders and servers were friendly, well trained, and helpful. The food, however, was a different story. My husband and I have been coming to Johnny’s ever since they first opened at Village Pointe in Omaha. It was always a treat we looked forward to and we knew that whatever we ordered, it would be amazing. Whenever out-of-town friends came to visit, Johnny’s was always our first choice of places to bring them.

Last Friday night, my husband and the couple we were with ordered the special...steak and lobster tail. I ordered a ribeye. Their steaks were good but the lobster tail was fairly small and very dry. My ribeye was so awful, I had to send it back. When the waiter first set my plate in front of me, I thought it looked like a hamburger patty. One end was approximately 1/2” thick, the other end approximately 1/4” thick, and it was gray in color. It was not overly tender and had very little flavor. Much as I hate to complain about food, I simply could not eat it. The waiter returned to our table to check on us and when I expressed my opinion, he promptly asked what he could bring for me instead. I appreciated that very much. I ordered the chubby cut sirloin, and it was absolutely excellent.

My other complaint was the mixed vegetables that came with the steak. When I go to a nice steakhouse like Johnny’s and order mixed veggies, I picture broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, etc. Colorful and of substance. With both steak orders, the mixed vegetables consisted of sautéed red and green bell pepper strips, onions, and 2-3 very small pieces of yellow squash. It was more onions than anything else and looked anemic and unappetizing. The appetizer, house salad and bread were all awesome, as was the dessert.

We will definitely give Johnny’s another try but if it happens again, well, there are many other great steakhouses in Omaha. Thank you for listening.

Sincerely,
Carol Hinshaw

I was in a date night with my wife. The atmosphere was great, the service was outstanding, my wife food was on point. The only small issue was that my steak was way overcooked the first time and way undercooked the second time, but the third time it was just right. However, as I mentioned above, the waitress and manager were great. One thing that I value a lot when going out to eat is the service I receive. I will definitely be back again.

It was New Year’s Eve, so it was crazy! We had 8pm reservation and didn’t get seated until 8:50pm. The standing room only was so crowded. They did give us champagne while we waited which was nice. The front staff were apologizing - but people were still quite frustrated.
Once we got seated, our waitress (Michelle) was very nice. They did run out of prime rib 😫. The food we ordered was very good and overall we enjoyed our evening. Probably won’t ever go on New Year’s Eve again though.

Our reservation request thru Open Table was for a booth. The hostess wanted to seat us at a 2 top. I declined and she was amiable about it and moved us to a larger booth. Much appreciated. Janine, our
waitress, was excellent-as was the food. My only negative comment is the price for your scotch--too
much in my opinion. I will seek a less expensive beverage .

I have been to Johnny's many times and the food and service have been excellent. Unfortunately, this was not one of those times. Two of the three steaks were overcooked and the Chicken piccata was tasteless. The server did not return in time to handle the steaks and when she did come back we were too far into the meal to fix. No effort was made at service recovery.

Excellent food, service, and ambiance. The only thing was the corkage fee. I went online ahead of time to see if they stocked my date's favorite wine. They did not so I emailed a request about the corkage fee and did not receive a response so I called to ask about their corkage fee. A very pleasant person answered the phone and said that customers bring their own wine all of the time and she did not think there was a corkage fee. I was billed $20 for a corkage fee, which is somewhat high considering another similar restaurant nearby charges $8. I would have likely chosen the other restaurant if I had known. I would still recommend Johnny's Italian to my friends.

We had a tasty meal here, each of our entrees was great. The wine selection was a bit slim, but we ended up with a good bottle. Our server was excellent. The reason I took a star off for service has to do with our pre-meal. Even then folks were gracious, but it was awkward. We arrived a few minutes before our reservation, so weren't surprised to wait a bit. The host stand was quite crowded with staff, which seemed a little odd. We were then seated at a table much too big for our three people, and in the bar area which was rather loud (difficult for hearing, especially for my mother). I went back to the host station and asked if there were any other tables available. One of the hostesses went to check and did find a table for us in the regular dining area. Then we had a lovely meal, but it was an uncomfortable start.

It's possible that these tables in the bar are actually reserved for restaurant dining, but with televisions, bright lights and noise, it would not have made for a good steakhouse dining experience.

We got the wrong order first. I think if the waiter would have said let me read your order back that would not have happened. The tables were pretty close together and the noise level from the bar area was there. They packed several people at a table behind us and pulled the curtain so the wait staff seemed to really be maneuvering around Food was good. Thanks
