Everything would’ve been 5 star except for the most obnoxious people were seated next to us. Very loud adults and unruly kid (probably 10-11 yr old). The kid watched cartoons on his phone the entire time. Completely ruined the experience I was hoping for.
Always delicious. Service was perfect! Thanks for a lovely time, as usual!!
Amazing food, experience, people at a reasonable price for high quality food.
The food and service is amazing at Johnny’s!
Service was excellent. Our server Bobby was very attentive.
Safe and relaxing dining.
Amazing as always.
Fantastic food and top notch service, would definitely go back!
Had a client in town. Johnnys is always the place to meet.
Start off spending an hour or so at the bar with Vallee....she's awesome...lots of laughs.
Then move to the dinning area for great eats. Debra Baldwin is a charm waitress. I always request her, because she stands out above the rest...!! Always right on...enjoy her great personality and looks..even with the mask on...! Just beautful.
We will be back !!!
We enjoy coming to Johnny's. Our meals and service was awesome.
Wonderful time as always. Celebrating 40 years of friendship. Waitress was awesome,food was great.
Great place to take a date, celebrate a special occasion, or just get the family together for a meal that is above the bar set by the nice chains. I'd highly recommend Johnny's.
We loved the service and the food and will definitely return.
I had the filet Madagascar, cooked to perfection. We had the fried mozzarella for appetizer and it was fantastic. Our waiter JoJo was fabulous. When my husband and I both asked for Josh Cabernet he suggested the bottle to save money. We were seated at a quiet table for 2 so that was also perfect.
JoJo is a great server. The food was outstanding as always.
Love the food, service and the experience!!!
We also love Amanda. - The best.
Birthday celebration was wonderful! Service food and atmosphere was awesome!

Always great food and service. Always love coming here
Excellent hot food. Service great, waiters very attentive
Excellent classic Italian food - simply delicious.
Went there on a Friday night and the service was still amazing because eof it being packed it was a little loud but I was still able to hear the other people at my table no problem and the food was absolutely amazing.
Excellent experience from start to finish. From offering to fix my error of picking a high top table to giving us a normal table. Justin our server was on point all night, making our anniversary celebration even better. Everyone was awesome.
Happy, a little expensive but good food and friendly service.
Food was excellent!!
We went out for our Anniversary. The service was a bit slow but we didn’t mind because it was just nice to be out.
The patio was lovely. When I went inside to use the ladies’ room I was shocked by so many people inside esp around the bar
open table gave us the wrong time for Johnny's reservation, which was 4:45 pm When we arrived, they said they didn't do that time, so we had to wait quite awhile. Our waiter took forever to bring everything, including the bill. We thought the food was mediocre, as opposed to when the restaurant first opened, and then it was great.
The food was excellent, as usual, as was the service. There were protocols in place for COVID-19, but they were reasonable and not excessive.
This had been the first time I had been back inside Johnny's since before the pandemic. We did order via delivery services a few times from Johnny's during the pandemic, but it was much better to actually be in the restaurant.
Our server Jamie R always makes sure we have a great experience!
Great food. Noisy in the front deck, but that's no fault of the restaurant
Absolutely delicious apps and dinner. Classy and attentive.
We ate outside, which was very nice, except we were bothered by several bees. The food was very good, the service was excellent, and the dessert was fantastic!
The bread, appetizer, entree and wine were all very good. Service was good considering the COVID 19 protocol. Our waitress went missing which meant a bit of a wait and another waitress stepped in for awhile. Other than that the service was good. The one big disappointment was that the coffee was really bad. Very disappointing. Otherwise and enjoyable meal.
Our server Jamie was excellent. She gave great recommendations for drinks and entrees. She made us feel very welcome. Two of our entrees had specific requests which were served as ordered. We all four enjoyed our experience from drinks, bread, salad, entrees to desserts. The food was excellent and we all took part of our dinners home to be sure we enjoyed desserts.
We dined on a Monday night and the restaurant was busy not fully packed. It seemed like the wait between drinks, entrees and desserts was longer than we have experienced in the past. We were not in a rush but waits were excessive.
Overall we had a great experience at Johnny's and were happy to be there with our granddaughter and new husband who truly loved a real authentic quality Italian dinner experience.
Lined it will go again
Great choice before Proctors Theater. Top notch food and service while keeping a comfortable atmosphere. Can not wait to visit again.
