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.

Our food was fabulous. Our server was incredible. We tried some new wines which we liked so much that our server got the bartender to write down the names for us. A wide menu that you can't go wrong with. I highly recommend Johnny's!

Great little place, especially for a hotel. Friendly, attentive staff and competent, if not spectacular cuisine. Fairly extensive and pleasing menu. Good wine list and reasonable prices. We will be back.

My wife and I went to Johnny's Italian Steakhouse based upon favorable reviews seen on OpenTable but we were both disappointed. While the atmosphere and service were good, the food was mediocre at best. We don't plan on returning.

The service has improved greatly since the opening of Johnnys. It appears they have few changes in management staff. The staffs are very friendly and even the assistant management (Monica) checked on us which made it every nice and welcoming. As always the foods are great and plentiful.

We had a party of about 24. Food overall was very good - we pre-ordered. Some of the steaks were a bit underdone (mine was perfect), but they rectified immediately. The level of service and attention we received was OUTSTANDING. Thank you Nicki and staff.

Food was excellent - perfectly cooked, service great and I loved our semi private table in the corner with the drapes. Brunch sounds great too - will for sure try that too very soon

This is a hidden gem within our community. The steaks are great and we cant wait to go back. We hope the business can hire more staff as their business grows. That is the trick really for any restaurant but having the right service staff to handle the clientele will be critical for those who go for the first experience. Nothing but a upside for this establishment in my opinion.

A little difficult to find due to the only sign is on the side of the Holiday Inn hotel. Beautiful interior and appears to be fairly new. Very convenient to be able to make a reservation right on their web site. Arrived at 6:30 on a Friday night and found that there were only 3 other tables occupied. We were a little confused about who are server was due to being greeted by 3 different individuals within just a couple of minutes after being seated. Even the manager stopped by our table to introduce herself. They have a very good variety of items offered on the menu at reasonable prices. We had a difficult time deciding what to order due to number of great options.

I substituted the spinach salad for the house salad with my entree. The salad arrived at the table without any dressing. I had to ask the server for the missing salad dressing. He obviously did not know their menu or he could of told that the dressing was missing. I ordered the crab stuffed snapper and it looked great. Unfortunately instead of being served with a cream base sauce someone had put Italian dressing on the plate. The vinegar based sauce ruined the flavor of the snapper. The manager did offer to replace my entree but it was 30 minutes after the food arrived. The manager was very polite and insisted on removing the entree from our check. She also offered a complimentary dessert. Even the free dessert wasn't very good. It tasted stale and we only ate a couple of bites.

I am willing to give this location another chance, I just hope they are still in business in a few months. Johnny's would be better suited in a different location.

Great meal, as usual. We even brought the in-laws and the kids (aged 3 and 7). The in-laws plan on returning. And the kids loved the unadvertised (it's not on the website) kid's menu. Recommended wine was delicious, Blue Moon beer was cold, steaks were prepared to the correct temperature, and appetizers were delicious (toasted ravioli and zucchini fries). Thank you everyone at Johnny's for a great birthday celebration for the wife! PS - We missed seeing you there Joe!

As we drove up and found it was attached to the hotel, we were skeptical but went inside anyway. We’re greater well and the service was very pleasant. The food portions were all large and the food was very good. The appetizers, bread, salad, lobster bisque were all fantastic. The steaks we ordered were cooked perfectly and their flavor was average. We were pleasantly surprised and enjoyed our dinner. We would go back again!

We had lunch to celebrate our bdays and Christmas and each had a cocktail and a steak and the server left without saying bye after an hour of being there and the manager came over and rushed us out by asking if it was on one check?! No asking About another drink! Will not go back, steak was well done and crispy when I asked medium well! Bad experience for a first time! Not going back ever!

This was my fourth visit to the restaurant. It had been a few months and I was disappointed to see they no longer had the guitarist we enjoyed on earlier visits. The attendance at the bar area seemed to be down, possibly because of that. The food was still good, as was the service and value.
