We head to Johnny's for a great dinner with live music. The staff members are incredibly friendly and go out of their way to make you feel appreciated.

Food was good. Customers do appreciate transparency when asking about an item on the menu. Our server was detailed but forgot to mention the difference of price of 2 items which was a $12+ difference when we asked what is the difference of the two. We received the surprise when we saw the bill!

This was my first dinner and second experience at Johnny's. The food and the service were fine -- not extraordinary -- but very good. Worth the price.

What was off-putting about the experience cannot be fixed easily, but included a vast, uninhabited space (except for the bar -- at 7pm on a Saturday night), strange music, poor acoustics (one man who was dining across the room was not shouting, but his voice reverberated strangely around the room nonetheless), and strangely not oriented to a lovely view. When I last ate at Johnny's -- I took my office staff for lunch, and we ate on the patio -- the food was also very good, the service great, and the ambiance far more relaxing and evocative of a "seaside" resort setting.

The dining space seems to have been so oriented to large groups that to go there for a relaxing dinner for two -- especially inside the dining room -- was just unpleasant. This seems a basic design flaw, but for a $60 dinner for two -- with no alcohol or dessert -- a little atmosphere would have been nice.

Great restaurant inside the Hotel with plenty of seating at the bar and in the dining area. I visited during restaurant week and tried two different entrees. The baked stuffed lobster and the Bacon wrapped sirloin both entrees were delicious. We tried the chocolate mousse cake for dessert which melted in our mouths. I would return to this place in the future.

Ordered off the Newport Restaurant Week menu, backed stuffed lobster and bacon wrapped filet mignon for entree’s, which were excellent. Cooked perfectly and generous sized portion. Appetizers of lamb chops and shrimp cocktail were also very well done. Drink service was a bit slow but otherwise we had attentive service. Atmosphere was ok but would have appreciated that the glare from lights be dimmed.

We were 5 people dining for brunch yesterday. It took about an hour to get our food. The server did not communicate with us about any delays. The food was good but I won’t be going back to wait that long for food again. When our food was finally brought out, one of the omelette orders was wrong. I had higher hopes for this restaurant.

I was very disappointed with the fact that my family and I drove up to Newport from New Jersey to spend Thanksgiving dinner with cousins who recently lost their mother and we were told the Buffet was over and what was left was a leftover Thanksgiving meal. When I saw what was being offered, I chose a lobster salad instead. In addition, when we tried to make the best of it and were socializing with each other, lights were turned off indicating it was time for us to leave. Will not attend this restaurant again.

Their economical Thanksgiving buffet was quite good. The service given the day was amazingly attentive. My husband and I went there the Sunday before to check out their free afternoon jazz which was also quite good. Wine and appetizers were reasonably priced. We will go back when we return to Newport in May for their early bird dinner specials.

We came for lunch during resultant week and arrived before the restaurant got packed, however it did get packed within about a half an hour of us arriving. We had to ask for things from our not so attentive server (drinks mostly) multiple times and the food took forever to come out. When the clam chowder and lobster bisque came out, there was a film on top of them like they had been sitting out for a while. They were luke warm and average tasting at best. One of the other appetizers was a sampler, and while the clam cake was delicious and at least a good warm temperature, the stuffie was cold, so we really weren’t sure if it was good or not. Our meals were all average, not cold luckily, but not hot. The dessert was well presented and actually very tasty. Would not be back, except maybe for drinks at the bar.

This was our first visit to the"new" Johnny's having been to the original by the beach many times. This may have effected our visit ratings since it is a major departure. The environment was casual. Staff attention was very good but there were no more than 3 other diners present at any one time. This was mid afternoon, 3pm. The branzini was very nice but the Israeli couscous was slightly overcooked and was bland. The hummus appetizer was wonderful. The black bean hummus was adelight. The clam chowder was good.

The restaurant was large enough so there was plenty of room to pull out a chair without bumping into your neighboring table. The waitress was friendly and attentive. The food was delicious. We weren't rushed and stayed long after eating for lots of laughs and conversation. BUT, they did NOT have a record of my reservation. Fortunately, there were plenty of tables available to seat us.

Great waterfront bar. Food was good, but appetizer order was forgotten and served at same time as entrees.
Service was poor. They kept telling us they were short staffed, which was hard to believe at height of summer and on a busy Friday night.
I won't be returning anytime soon.
