Great night to dine outside and listen to the excellent piano player. Hot peppers stuffed with ground veal were outstanding. Salads need improvement in prep and quality of tomatoes. Entrees were very good. Happy they could accommodate a request for a simple desert of berries with fresh whipped cream. Will return and try different entrees!
Had a good meal,enjoyed the quiet time, good service, felt very safe. One of our favorite restaurants.
Excellent meal with family. Great service and atmosphere. Recommend highly.
The restaurant was great. We were seated right by the piano player so the ambiance was fantastic. The server was on point and the food was spectacular.
Fantastic food from the appetizers to the main course everything was beyond perfect.
Overall good experience. Slightly higher price wise than I expected. But love the food and atmosphere in the current environment. It was safe and relaxing. Will go back
Happy to see things have not really changed at Johnny's. Still high quality food and service. Keep up the good work.
A wonderful place. Mike Petrone playing the piano makes the dining experience even more special. The food is always superb and the staff courteous, and attentive. Perfect for a Saturday evening date night.
This place feels you you stepped into an old world high end Italian spot. The service is excellent. Drinks are generous. We got the shrimp cocktail at $4.50 per piece they were huge and excellent. We both got the veal bone steaks. My partner had the pounded and breaded one it was great! I had the one with mushrooms and enjoyed mine too. I usually get the duck appetizer with the cherry sauce one of my favorite recipes! They need your business right now! It wasn't crowded. Downtown is open again and there are no more riots in the streets come out and support this exceptional restaurant!
Seriously the best dinner out in forever! Will be going back!
Everyone was so nice and friendly, loved the live music
The food was good, the service could have been better.
Food was fantastic. Generous pours on the drinks. Perfect ambiance. Will be back soon for sure.
Best dining experience! The food was elegant and delicious. Loved the ambiance, table by the window and prompt attention by the server. The piano player was so entertaining and made our 2nd date memorable forever.
We will be back again!
Always the best!!!!
Great all around experience. Food was superb (I had the pounded veal chop). Service was on point and my server had great recommendations. Will absolutely be back.
Exquisite food and drinks with a fabulous pianist. Will be back soon!
Brittany was awesome server! We were warmly welcomed at checkin & coats taken. Live piano in bar was great touch.
Osso buco was tender perfect & banana pepper had a real kick. Wife had beef tournados since out of seafood combo. She had the calamari but odd saucy filling.
Wine was a bit pricy at $12/glass.
Great night out for restaurant week!
I was very disappointed in everything but the music. Our server was probably one of the reasons I gave a poor rating. It was clear that she was not happy to be working. Her demeanor was brash, there was little maintenance of our table and not the service I have come to expect at Johnny’s. Our table was so wobbly that we needed a few pieces of wood strategically placed to keep food and drinks from spilling on us. The food quality was not the usual. The scalloped potatoes were inedible. I hope this was a one time occurrence and not a new standard.
The restaurant was quiet and restful. Its decor reminded me of come of the clubs I have visited. Service was quick and attentive. Our orders were prepared to our satisfaction and in most cases, exceeded our expectations. The oso bucco was a standout and quite large. Drinks were cold when they should have been. All and all, an excellent experience. We shall return.
Service was not great to say the least- food wasn’t great either.
We love the piano bar
This is such an elegant place to dine, but our server was very gruff, good but gruff. Just did not go with the atmosphere very well.
First time visitors and came for Restaurant Week luncheon. Excellent lamb shank
Great service and piano bar and ambiance very nice. Food was average for the price
I was very disappointed with this restaurant. The waiter didn’t introduce himself to us and was standoffish from the beginning. My husband’s filet mignon and lobster had a very strange bitter taste and he couldn’t eat the meal. He didn’t want to send the food back and be rude but we were very disappointed with our waiter who did nothing about it and basically didn’t even believe us. I ordered gnocchi which was very good but our dinner was ruined. Never going back to this place.
First time at Johnnys downtown. Beautiful old bar, enjoyed our meal. Key Lime pie was excellent.
