Service was painfully slow. We were not able to get drinks when desired. Dishes were on the salty side. Prices have gone up it seems. I will return to give another chance. But not what it used to be in our opinion. Thank you.

We go out to eat at least twice a week and go to restaurants that offer fine dining. Johnny's was a unexpected surprise. The food was beyond good and rivaled the best I've ever experienced. The choices were many and we were encouraged to custom order anything we wanted if we didn't see it on the menu. The service was top notch and the wait staff were friendly and made one feel as if they were happy to have us there. We will be back as soon as our travels take us to the Schenectady area again

Johnny's has a nice atmosphere, and the tables were well-distanced from each other, in accordance with COVID rules. The food was very good, and the warm bread they brought out was a treat.
We will go back!

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.

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 !!!

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.

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.
