Steakhouse
Johnny's Italian Steakhouse® West Chester is the first and only in Ohio. The restaurant concept began in Moline, IL with a few very important elements in mind, great steaks, hot music, hot Italian, and a cool place. And that is what you will find when you join us at Johnny’s Italian Steakhouse®. Johnny’s is a steakhouse complimented with a rich Italian background featuring traditional and innovative items and a superior wine list.

The classic interior is reminiscent of the supper clubs of yesteryear. The sophisticated design of the restaurant is welcoming and warm; the illuminated lighting creates an air of mystique and privacy. The classic sounds of Sinatra, Dean and Sammy Davis, Jr. as well as contemporary crooners like Michael Bublé and Harry Connick Jr. surround the restaurant and infuse an aura and rhythm all of it’s own.

This is a tremendous local gem. Attentive service, outstanding food and good value. Dont be misled that it happens to be in a moderate hotel. It is mainstream priced (not hotel priced) and could stand on it's own anywhere. Plenty of space next to an energetic lounge. Minor criticisms are wine list is not reflective of the great quality here and the music was too low to hear (even with minimal crowd).

Excellent food with excellent service made for an enjoyable anniversary dinner. Staff was very attentive without being in our face. Our meal was delicious from the French onion soup to the glorious desserts. Highly recommend their melt in your mouth steaks as well as their seafood selections.

One of the best bone-in steaks I have had! I hate to write such a good review because soon it will be so crowded I will have a hard time getting in!

Service was good, waitstaff friendly. Food was average! Salad & bread that came with our entries were outstanding. Husband had a pasta & sausage dish. It was good, flavourful & plentiful. I had a disappointing Lobster Mac ‘n Cheese. Lobster claws were small & watery (probably previously frozen). The sauce was runny! Not worth the price- I sure wouldn’t recommend that dish!

Well my food was awesome but, some of my friends was expecting something different with their meals. So that's why I gave the food a 4. This was my first visit and I was celebrating my birthday. I enjoyed the service and decor of the restaurant. The only thing was it was cold in the restaurant. I think the air was on and it was already cold and rainy.

A beautiful new restaurant with a large diverse menu and acceptable service. Our waitress worked hard but had a table of about twelve people who were seated shortly after we ordered and that made it tough for her to give us much attention. We both had veal meals and they were delicious. I would recommend this restaurant. We were celebrating our anniversary and both agreed it was a good choice.

Good experience overall. Four of us dined there on a Saturday night. Reservation is for 8:45 PM We had four steak dinners and two of them seemed a little overdone. We asked for a medium and they were a little bit past that. We ate them Anyway. Overall the experience was fine. We will go back I’m sure.

This was probably the best steaks my husband and I have ever eaten. Food was outstanding and server was very good. Very pleasant and courteous. Wish there were more Johnnys restaurants in Ohio. We live in Springfield OH so this location was an hour and a half from us. Thanks again for a great meal!

Service was a bit slow, and the food was not quite what you would expect.

For a $140+ meal, most likely will not be inclined to return. Nothing about the evening makes me in a hurry to return.

Short staffed on a Saturday night which was explained by the hostess. Still took over 20 minutes to get a drink order taken after telling hostess twice that no one had looked at us. Finally manager stepped in. Food was average when we finally go it.

Where do I begin
Ordered frozen drink got a non frozen drink
Waitress forgot what husband ordered as a cocktail
Wrong appetizer brought to table sea food and we do NO sea food
Husband received wrong dinner meal
Waitress did not even check if we needed anything
Manger came over to see if we would like s free dessert which we declined the comp but wanted dessert not even offer dessert menu just our check
Oh yeah when I checked on there was a couple who were walk up and I felt like they were an inconvenience to the hostess she made me well aware they had no reservations not like they were busy an I really could of cared less
Over all made our 32 anniversary an awful experience
Place came highly recommend

Made a reservation for a Saturday evening for a birthday. We were seated right away and our waitress came over immediately and took our drink order. She was attentive throughout the meal. We ordered steaks and they were cooked to our specifications. We ordered the mushroom appetizer. It was delicious. The bread arrived as she gave us our drinks and the food was all hot and served within a timely manner. My dining partner had a birthday and the restaurant gave us a complimentary dessert to take home. We will be dining there again.

First time that we have gone to Johnny's Italian Steakhouse. We got the Valentine's Day special for 2, which was an appetizer to share, salad, entrée, dessert to share and a bottle of champagne. Pretty good deal for $99. Food was very good, looking forward to going back to try another cut of steak.
