Janko's Little Zagreb Ratings and Reviews
Not at all what we were expecting. I'd have to rate it as overpriced for the quality level of the steaks that we received. If this is the best Bloomington has to offer for steaks...I feel sorry for Bloomington. It was nice to try but a little pricey for this category of steaks. The service was good and it appeared that all of the servers were quite intent on satisfying everyone that was seated. Decent wine selection. a loud variety of music. An interesting place for certain but a little pricey for the quality. Been there now and done that now.
Enjoyed everything except the physical comfort. Table distance between guest and yourself was narrow. Felt like I was on top of the other party across from me. Booths were very uncomfortable. That was the only negative. NOW the food and service was exquisite. I would compare the quality and favor to any 5 star steakhouse in Indpls. The cheese tray appetizer was a meal in itself. It is a must "try". The filet was cooked perfectly for medium rare. The salad and potato were equally as well prepared. Again the service was exceptional.
I have been to Janko's many times and always enjoy the atmosphere and the food. This time was no different. Even though we were there following an IU football game our server took her time and did not pressure or rush us to order, eat, and get out. I wish the same could be said for one of the girls that was busing tables. She came to our table at least four different times wanting to clear our appetizer plate as if to hurry us along. The same continued into our dinner.
It seemed like every time we laid down our fork she would stop and ask if we were finished and could she get our plates out of the way. This was very annoying and made the overall experience less than enjoyable. I'll be back again for sure. I just hope I'm not as "rushed" by the staff the next time.
Service was great... Only issue with the food was that the Ribeyes were overly charred, even though ordered medium... Daughter’s ribeye was mostly pieced together and with substantial gristle. She - 15 yo - was too timid/shy to ask for a replacement at the time and barely ate any of it. 1st not-the-best ribeye’s at Janko’s and have eaten there a couple of dozen times with clients.
It took 4 attempts to make my steak correctly. I ordered medium, and the first 3 attempts were rare. After the second time it was brought out rare, the waitress offered to have another steak made, and that one came out rare as well. At least it ended up being free and the waitress was pleasant and understanding.
This was my 2nd Visit. The food is very good for a basic steakhouse. The steaks are excellent. The meatball appetizer is tasty but very spicy! The salads and sides are nothing special. Not many steak choices for Bloomington therefore if you want an excellent steak, this is your place.
