Johnny’s Downtown, opened in 1993, is similar to the original Johnny’s Bar on Fulton Road, featuring pasta, veal and fish. The setting, a refurbished 1860’s Warehouse District building, formerly a general store, is the drinking and dining spot of locals and business people alike. Joseph Fall, the executive chef, oversees the food operations and is responsible for our crafting our signature dishes and creating daily specials. There are several wines by the glass to choose from and the wine list has nabbed an Award of Excellence from the Wine Spectator. There is piano music in the bar featuring Mike Petrone Monday-Friday, and Cliff Habian on Saturday evenings.

On top of this, it is outrageous how costly this restaurant has become. I know inflation is high but putting a plain pasta dish(Angel Hair with marinara and 1 sausage link) at $31+ is practically criminal. We will give Fulton location a try again but not until we check prices and they come down to a reasonable level. I have a feeling they will lose a lot of business due to their price increases, counterproductive to maintaining an ongoing concern. I'll recommend only if things get back to a reasonable level and the food is as good as it once was.

Fact: Marked on OpenTable that this was a birthday dinner and called restaurant three days in advance to request something simple, like a cupcake, or small desert with candle for Birthday dinner = None provided. Fact: Not a single person at this restaurant wished my wife "happy birthday" Fact: All of our leftovers were thrown (literally) into ONE (1) plastic container (mixed together). We had a salad that none of us ate, which we asked to have boxed, looked like someone dropped it on the floor and then scooped it into the box. The walnuts and blue cheese were not in the box. When we saw this, we threw it in the garbage, because it looked like someone may have done something very inappropriate to our food. Fact: I brought this to the attention of one of the staff as we were waiting for the valet. She did not return to address this in any way, before our car arrived and we departed the restaurant. We have dined at this establishment several times and have always been very satisfied, which is why we made the reservation. We are not sure what happened here, but something is wrong with the people at this restaurant, on this day. If they do not want us to share our terrible experience at this restaurant, on this day, then they should have thought about that, before they treated us so poorly. Management allowed this. To other restaurants who read this... The above comments are FACT. Do not think what we say about one restaurant and their staff has anything to do with what we may or may not say when we are dining at your establishment. We are honest, fair, and objective on a case-by-case basis. I would like to speak with the owner.

We’ve been here before and it has always been very good, but this experience was really lacking. The server brought us waters at the beginning of the meal but never refilled them even once. I did not want potatoes as a side item and asked if I could substitute something else and the waiter’s response was “we really don’t have anything else we can give you.” This was surprising as we do a lot of fine dining and I have never been told there was absolutely nothing else to have. Particularly when my friend’s meal arrived and she had asparagus- could I have had that? Nonetheless the second side was green beans so I just asked if I could have a double portion of green beans and he said yes, but my meal arrived with potatoes and regular green beans instead of what I ordered. My friend’s asparagus was as hard as raw asparagus anyway, so I guess not much of a loss. We also ordered dessert and the waiter described a chocolate chip cake to us. We asked if it was cheesecake and he said no. So I ordered that. What I got was a chocolate espresso cheesecake that had a strong coffee flavor - not at all what he said it was, and no chocolate chips to be seen. In fact there was no mention of coffee at all or I would not have chosen it bc I don’t care for coffee flavored desserts. All in all it was an expensive and disappointing meal.

Couldn’t get a drink (1/4 hour wait for glass of wine), waiter said kitchen is slow, we said could we at least get our salads since we were waiting a 1/2 for food. After more than hour wait, entrees all came over cooked, burnt, rubbery, almost like the chef was missing. Really disappointed when you want a special night out to treat friends and it was so less then we remembered.

The menu on the website was not the menu that was available on this day. I believe it’s Restaurant Week. I ordered the Pasta Puttanaise, a sweet red pepper pasta with shrimp. It was spicy but lacked flavor. The fettuccine noodles were either undercooked or not drained properly because they were stuck together in clumps. The dish was served lukewarm. As it was still in my bowl when the table was cleaned, it was comped. Others in my party were also disappointed also. The Italian Wedding Soup was served with chicken instead of meatballs (matzo balls?). The smoked trout appetizer was served cold on lettuce with chopped tomato, onions and capers. The menu did not state the fish would be served cold. The redeeming quality about that dish was a cold paste served with it. The side of the restaurant where we were seated seemed stuffy, as if the air quality was poor or the AC was off. The music couldn’t be heard continually. I have no wish to return.

We had to ask for bread and even that seemed lacking in taste. Caesar salad and dinner salads were ok, nothing special. My wife and M-I-L ordered the soft shell crab which they felt was good. My son ordered the panko crusted lamb chop which he thought was very good. I ordered pasta in a marinara sauce. The pasta was overcooked and the sauce was absolutely tasteless and watery. I had to ask for parmigiana cheese (which was not offered) which helped a bit. After asking for some red pepper flakes, even that did little to enhance the sauce. After all this (dessert was acceptable) the bill was very overpriced for the quality we received. Service was quite slow-we waited at least 10 minutes for dessert-how long does it take to cut a piece of cake?? Seems like the kitchen was very understaffed. This experience fell way short of what I remember was always a quality meal. I would NOT recommend it.

When I asked why we weren’t told about this when we made the Rez weeks ago the waiter said they didn’t know about it until they came in at 11am. Then he went on to tell me they weren’t even suppose to be open after 5pm. I was told by my daughter it was my fault Mother’s Day dinner was a bust.

The shrimp and pasta dish was like paste, the chicken dish had a weird taste, and the 2 eggs Benedict florentine with lobster were warm at best, and the poached eggs were soft boiled! So needless to say we were very disappointed with the food. The waitress was great, very personable and efficient. And the drinks were very good! But as a whole I would say disappointed!

I felt very ignored my whole visit. we waited over an hour for our food as well. the piano man was amazing and perfect, the only good part about my experience. so ridiculous this took so long. we watched 2 other tables get their food and desert and leave before we even got our food. such a horrible experience. I am a waitress and that makes me even more upset about my bad experience here. would not recommend and I will NOT ever be back. ALSO, the host "Joe" sat me at the WRONG table, then proceeded to call me and leave a very RUDE message. it was not appreciated. very rude when he is the one who messed up!

I would have rather cooked my own dinner at home and just gone out for the drinks instead of ordering the high priced meals with poor execution. Fine place but the prices do not reflect the quality of the menu.

We heard loud pounding which, I assumed, since near the kitchen, was tenderizing meat. However, I did not want to hear this and told the host who immediately helped quiet the kitchen down but did confirm it was for the veal! We enjoyed the surf n turf which out an outstandingly juicy and of course tender filet, a large lobster tail, and delicious creamy potatoes with crunchy green beans. We had the salad with blue cheese and house dressing & I got an old fashioned. It was a wonderful experience all around and I was grateful to have attentive service & a night away from loud kiddos!

Our server apologized and took it away to make a whole new one. Unfortunately, by the time my 2nd grouper was brought out, my husband had almost finished his amazing veal chop! A little frustrating with the timing. The second grouper was cooked perfectly however.

I remember this restaurant from years back when I worked downtown. Today it looks shabby and in need of a restoration. Front door was impossible to open and we thought the place was closed. Lunch menu was very limited. Food was slightly above average. I wouldn't recommend it. I remember when it used to be a cool place to go. Sadly, not anymore.
