Johnny’s Italian Steakhouse was ok, we ordered ranch dressing, but got blue cheese, and my husband ordered vegetables, and he got garlic mashed potatoes, the waitress did bring him out a bowl of the vegetables after he told her. I asked for a refill of my tea, and she refilled with no ice, and I had to ask for ice... the experience was not all that great, so I don’t think we will be going back. The waitress was nice and the place seemed clean.

We ordered the scallops with linguini and drunken steak. The scallops were good. The drunken steak was ok, but nothing I would recommend. The family style salad served beforehand was marginal. We would have preferred individual salads, as it was very light on the dressing, and barely enough for two. We had a piece of banana cheesecake for dessert, which was good, but had too much crust which made it a bit dry. This was a 33 year anniversary dinner, and left us thinking we should have tried something else for the price. Not sure we would return anytime soon based on the value for the price. The service was slow to start, but improved as the meal progressed.

They tend to undercook. Order accordingly. Great place for a special occasion. On the pricey side.

The service did not meet expectations. Water glasses were not refilled. The server did not pour any wine after pouring the initial glass. Salad had the wrong dressing on it. We had to track down the manager to find the server. Dinner arrived just after salad was served. Salad with new dressing did not arrive until after the main course arrived. Ribeye steak was ordered medium rare and was cooked almost medium well. Steak was also way over salted.

We found a person and when we asked her if she was the manager she replied, “I guess I am for tonight.” She seemed genuinely concerned about our issues and offered us a glass of wine on the house but told us she could not take anything off the bill as we had already paid.

We were seated in area that was surrounded by curtains and separated from the ready of the restaurant despite having reservations.

The dress of fellow patrons was not that of what I would expect. We try to go to Johnny's twice a year because my fiance loves the place. Having a baseboard to compare the food to I would say this was our worst trip. The salads where sub-par, and my cut of filet didn't leave me thinking it was a high quality piece of meat. While the food and other diners where less then expected our waitress was amazing, my drink was full the entire meal, we had plenty of bread and she let my fiance and i enjoy each others company instead of spending time at the table making small talk. Which i personally appreciate.

We were there on a Sunday early evening. My husband and I brought 2 older relatives and were particularly impressed by the waitress. She was friendly but not intrusive, and she seemed to make an effort to speak loudly for the hard of hearing. The food was excellent; scallops, chicken, steak, salad.

One of the worst meals I have ever had. The service was terrible, slow and negligible. Had to ask where our drinks were, asked for our waters to be refilled and our cocktails had flat soda water. I had the chicken parmesan which was over-cooked and my side of pasta was luke-warm. Side of Brussels sprouts were under cooked and we didn’t get entrees until after an hour and a half.

We sat outside and the weather was perfect. Our server was pleasant, and we both got soup and salad. I thought the salad was rather small, but of course was delicious. My tomato soup was average.
For the amount of food we got I thought it was a bit pricey for lunch. But overall, we both enjoyed our experience there.

Resturant was not crowded, party of 3, two steaks were sent back because they were well done when the request was medium rare. The 3rd was steak and shrimp. It was barely warm but I ate it anyway. Dealt with a few pesky flies the entire meal. Waitress was good. Manager offered one free dessert. We chose cheese cheese which seemed old and dry.

The food was excellent, as usual. The service left a lot to be desired this time around. We were seated right away, but the server didn't come to the table for almost 15 minutes. It took another 20 for the salads and then almost 45 minutes after we were finished with them did our dinners appear. I don't mind a longer wait, but then at least check on our drinks, make sure they are full and let us know that it might be a little bit. None of that happened. The food came out hot, but my husband had to send back his au jus 3 times, because it was French Onion soup the first 3 times. Once that was taken care of, dinner was great and the manager did take care of our inconvenience by discounting our bill.

The food was really good but when we arrived the host stand was empty so we waited about 5 minutes to be greeted. Where we were sitting was really lovely and the booths are super comfortable and intimate but we overheard a group next to us find a piece of glove in their chocolate cake.

The food was great! Some if what ordered I did not like but that is because I was trying it for the first time. The Filet Mignon melts like butter.

Disappointed overall. Steak was good. Not very hot and baked potato was undercooked. Ordered scallops that we didn’t get and was charged for the salad that came with our meal. Waitor did not come over until about10 minutes after our meal was served to check on us then did not return again until we were done.

Our server's first night on the job and she was great. You could tell she was well trained. Food was good. Place was nice and clean. Seating not over comfortable. I was glad we had the waitress we did, I heard a couple of the other ladies talking to each other and they certainly seems to have more of an attitude...
We were going to a concert and the location was perfect. We would have liked to have gotten a bit later reservation, but 4:15 seemed to be the latest time on line. When we got there there was a TON of seating open. So I think we could have easily had something 45 minutes later. But after we ate we went down the block to a local brewery and that worked great.

We have always had a wonderful experience there, until this visit. It was the night of the Paul McCartney show and I understand it was going to be crazy busy. BUT I had reservations since January and we checked in a half hour early. 5 minutes after our original reservation time we were offered a table outside. Worried about the time, we took it. From the start service was VERY SLOW. We got bread but no plates or silverware. We waited a long time for drinks and my wine was wrong (I just kept it, worried about time). We waited another long time for salad. After that our server came back and told us he had LOST our order and we had to reorder it. He offered us more bread but never brought it or asked if we wanted another drink. By the time we got our food it was after 7:00. The food was mediocre: my salmon was dry and pasta was lukewarm. By this time we had to gobble our food and I ended up leaving half of mine. We've been here to eat before several concerts and have always had great food and experience. I know it was an exceptionally busy night but for $100 and with early reservations I feel we deserved a better experience.
