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.

The sauce is loaded with green peppers. Not impressed with the food at all, and it was overpriced.

Dinner was great, however when we arrived it was almost as if the reservation we made online did not count, and they had to "find" us a table.

My wife and I went for a date night. We arrived early and were seated after the time of our reservation. The staff appeared disorganized, and or overwhelmed. The service was very good and our server was very knowledgeable. The food was good but had not reached the level of unforgettable. Our over all experience was ok but not much more.

Disappointed. Steak was charred on outside, rare inside instead of medium. Server kept disappearing stating they were slammed yet there were several empty tables and servers standing around. Salad and bread basket were great. Previous dinners were amazing with great service so not sure what happened.

We really enjoyed dining at Johnny's Italian Steakhouse. All the food was fantastic including the appetizers. Be sure to get the "Little Italy Combination" appetizer which was great. Most of our dinner party had steaks which were cooked perfectly. My son had their Chicken Parm and his girlfriend had their Linguine Basilico and they were both pleased. The service was great so we couldn't have asked for a better experience.

The food was great and our server Maggie was even better! My wife and I were celebrating our two year anniversary at a special spot of ours. However, upper management decided they wanted to impose a 75 minute limit on dining for whatever reasons. While the staff in house did not rush us, we definitely felt rushed when advised of the policy while having half a bottle of wine left.

Came from out of town, staying overnight in West Chester, wanted nice place for Valentine dinner date. Had dined there once before, maybe 5 years ago. Seems menu was not as broad as other time I was there, maybe this is a Covid thing. Social distancing was great with our table behind a privacy curtain. Server was very friendly and efficient and our steak dinner was very good. Nice experience. Would return when in West Chester area.

Food was excellent, except the steaks we received were overcooked. They were happy to remake it. That would be fine but we also overheard two more tables near us that had the same issue. Like I said, they were remade but a little inconvenience so i'm knocking off one star. We took the leftover steak home and it was great too :-)

Staff was excellent from start to finish as we were checked on and helped by several teammates...all with smiling faces and a warm personality.

It was on Valentine's day and they were pretty busy so we were sat in the 'blue bar' area so it was not as romantic as the regular seating with warm white lights.

The highlight was the value in cost and serving sizes. We walked out of there with a free starter, calamari, steak, and lasagna with 4 alcoholic drinks for under $100. And the drinks were HUGE.

Will go back again and recommend to friends.

Enjoyed the meal and the atmosphere was nice. Our waiter was also very attentive. It being such a busy night and the covid restrictions the kitchen seemed to get a bit overwhelmed. The manager did make a point to talk to us and compensated us for the extended wait. We did enjoy the evening.

We had a table reserved and when we got there they did not have a table back in the restaurant offered a table at the bar or booth by the bar.

Reservations were at 5 we did not get our dinner until 6:45. My stake was room temperature and over cooked.

This was are second time we have eaten here the first time was great, so we will probably go back again. Hopefully they were just having a bad night.

To be honest I never thought that a restaurant that is attached to a Holiday Inn would be this great. Everything from start to finish was top notch!
