Better than average hotel restaurant - wish it was a busier restaurant - like to see a little more action here. Food is good and menu is good selection of Italian favorites.
Small issues from my POV: both pasta’s that my wife and I had, contained too much sauce. And waiter should have been more familiar with wine list - especially house wines.
Food was excellent. Service was great. The ambiance was perfect. Amazing dining experience. I will be going back!
Could use a little more light at the tables. Understand the ambiance thing, but kind of hard to read the menus without pulling out the light on my phone.
Everything else was amazing.
Thank you for the birthday desserts. Service from
Jackie was outstanding. Pleasant atmosphere.
Service could be a little more tighter, more attentive.
Food was OK, for the price you can find better. Our waiter was great, and nice looking inside.
The decor was gorgeous. The food was wonderful. Had a lovely evening. Thank you.
The cook needs to review the menu. Although the food was tasty. My order was incorrect. They missed several items off my order.
Service was average, as was food. It took over 5 minutes before our server approached us, and it was not busy. Not familiar at all with the menu either. Manager came out to apologize for timeliness of food, and seemed really frazzled. I hate to see what it's like when it's busy.
Food was great, service was good, it was just unfortunate that there was an event going on during my dinner reservation and they were a little under staffed to handle both the event and regular customers simultaneously. But overall, enjoyed the experience. Will be returning, hopefully not during a large banquet event.
We waited 10 mins for a server to come over. We ordered drinks 15 mins later no drinks. We walked out. Worst experience ever. When we walked out no one was at hostess stand to even know we left
We were really looking forward to going to the restaurant. I can’t give a review of the food because the service was non existent. After sitting at our table for 40 minutes we still had not received any water, bread, hello or even a drink order. We left very disappointed. They better resolve this issue or they won’t last. There were only 3 waitstaff and one bartender on a Saturday night.
Disappointed. Food was mediocre. Staff seemed inexperienced.
I treated my parents here for their wedding anniversary. When they got home they said it wasn’t the best of anything from the food to the ambiance. My Mother stated that her shrimp was cooked a little too hard to be stuffed and my Father said he has had much better steak. They also stated that it seemed to be a lot of children present for a restaurant that was suppose to be so classy. Plus, they would’ve appreciated being seated closer to each other being that it was just the 2 of them. And they were seated in a gigantic booth that may have seated 6 or more people. So, needless to say I won't be suggesting this place to anyone anytime soon. And I should have listened to my friend when she told me “they are just ok”.
Went here for Valentine’s Day. Being that they had open availability, later found out why. Why 20 minutes for a server eventually the host came out and took our drink orders. Still no server, then the manager took over and we were like ok this should be good now. We were wrong yet again. Took forever to get our bread, we got our appetizer which was the best part. We sent our meals back twice due to them being cooked incorrectly. Asked for steak medium first time well done. Second time way under done. Staff and managers are running this place very poorly. We were here for 2.5 hours and actually never ate food. And the two tables around us when we sat down had the same issue. One table even gave us the remaining balance if there 100 dollar gift card to pay our bill. Which we didn’t get to use. We handed it to another couple dealing with the same situation. Unfortunately Valentines dinner was ruined and we will never be back!
Had a reservation and waited 20 minutes to be seated.
Didn’t take a drink or appetizer order for another 10 minutes.
The drink I ordered tasted awful so I took it it up to the bar and asked for something different because our waitress never came back.
Dinner took at least 30-40 minutes to come.
It was just over all disappointing.
Valentine's day was the first time we had ever been here. We reserved on open table for 8pm. We still had a 30 minute wait. The food was good when we got it. The server was really nice and in her defense, the restaurant was packed and, in my opinion, there were not enough servers, but our meal took about 90 minutes to get. The couple next to us were seated before us and we were done eating before they got their meals. I'm not sure we will go back.
I made a reservation for my wife and I for Valentines Day. We had never been here before so I thought we would try something new. The staff didn’t seem prepared for us or any other guests when we arrived for our 5:30 reservation. Although we only waited a short time, the food took quite some time to make it out to us and we rarely seen our waiter. Overall the food was good, reasonably priced, and it was not a bad experience, but we probably won’t be going back as there are too many other places that we felt were much better.
Our first time there. The place was modern, subdued walls, simple monochrome paintings, large windows, very soft music, and uncrowded, space. Extremely private feeling. Waitress, was genuinely friendly, informed, and kept checking on us (along with a hostess, busboy, and a manager). We felt. like both family and VIPs. I've become less into steak, but my N.Y. Strip, was so tasty, not salty, and chewable. The side pasta, was heavenly (white parm cheese sauce), my wife's petite filet, garlic mashed, and our asparagus, were all great. The bread was also, warm, soft, and had a homemade flavor. The deserts (small chocolate fudge cake with ice-cream and my wife's cream-brule') were quite good. We usually go, to regular restaurants, (with total dining times, under an hour). That hour, is our usual time-attention span limit. This meal, took about 2 1/2 hours, but was a forced relaxation break (which probably became a new experience). One thing (upon reflection); we intend to return and consider Johnny's, our deluxe 'gastronomical and emotional spa').
We had a party of six for a birthday celebration. The sampler platter app was good. Salads were good. The chicken parmigiana and veal parmigiana were not very good. The broccolini has a terrible after taste and was cold as were the mashed potatoes. We won’t be back.
Party of 7, we all enjoyed our food. Staff was very friendly. A good time and value.
Jenny/Jena, (sorry it's been a few days) She was the best! Our group thought she was very welcoming and attentive.
Very nice it was my husband 's birthday and he loved it
Our waiter Moe was very congenial and friendly, made great food recommendations , and spent quality time talking with us. We've already recommended the restaurant to several friends and we'll be back!
Johnny's Italian Steakhouse is a quiet gem in Farmington Hills. Not pretentious, but unassumingly quality and value. I have taken several clients there, and have not been disappointed.
Overall the experience was good. Food was okay, have had better steak elsewhere. Our server, Danielle, was fantastic!
Our server was nice but quite distracted.
The food was excellent!
The steak was not cooked to order. Well done. Had to be sent back. Everything else was very good.
Food absolutely amazing! Will recommend to everyone.
Will return very soon.
Wonderful Lunch, all parties enjoyed every aspect and will return.
Service has been impeccable each time we have been to Johnny’s. Food is delicious and atmosphere is appealing and classy.
The Mangent Staff seem to work as a team with their staff. I thought the service would just be average since I had a coupon. But the service was excellent. It was my fourth time there and my husbands first time.
My wife & I pick a new restaurant we’ve never been to for New Years Eve dinner & this year it was Johnny’s Italian Steak House. It was a very good choice & we will be returning for a meal in the future. Good food, quiet ambience, and casual.
We dined on. Christmas Eve . The service was top notch. We had the sampler appetizer and it was delicious. The bread and salads were great starters. Everyone enjoyed their entrees which varied from steak, pasta and red snapper. We will definitely go back. It is a perfect place of a date, family gathering or even business meeting.
Business luncheon, food was phenomenal and restaurant is beautiful and a hidden gem in Farmington Hills, MI. Service was ok, everything came out correctly and in a timely manner. We just didn't get any information about specials or recommendations being that it was all of our first time being there. Location is hidden its connected onto the Holiday Inn Express. But, the restaurant's decor and ambiance is amazing and the food was delicious. I will definitely go back again!
We had a party of 6. Only one person said their food was good. The other 5 said the food was "OK". My chicken carbonara was very salty and overpowered the taste of the rest of the ingredients. One of my co-workers got the steak and they said it was a little tough but had good flavor. For the price it was not a good value.
Well, I'm am glad I'm with great company, because the food wasn't. Calamari is salty. The Lobster Mac & Cheese would have been better if it were Kraft. My Tiramisu was frozen. My wife is still waiting for her lemon for her water. The best thing was the bread, however did not receive a bread knife. Everyone had to cut their bread with their own knife. Plus, we could not get more bread even though we asked.
Bad experience! for our annual Christmas dinner.
Enjoyed the experience overall
We waited 25 minutes for anyone to come to our table. The restaurant wasn't busy at all about 5 other tables had people at them. We flagged down a waitress and she helped us right away and let a manager know. When i received my drink Kahula and Cream the cream was bad it was all curled on top. When we received our food most of the food was cold. We had movie tickets so just ate it. We didn't have time to get dessert we knew by the time she brought it to us and the bill it would be to late. A manager never came over to see us either. We would never recommend this place.
Appetizer was wrong. Had to do over. Steak was cooked 2 levels more than ordered. Should have sent back but we were under a time crunch. Should NOT have had to pay $30 for a meal not ordered!
