Johnny's is our 'treat' restaurant. Do not go on a regular basis, but have never been disappointed when we do. Everyone at our table (5 of us) gave their food a thumbs up. Our server was timely with drinks and food. It is a bit pricey, but worth it for a special occasion.

It is certainly worth a second visit. It is a rare treat to find a good restaurant that is interested in providing a good meal experience for their customers. The only downside is your dessert line. For me the selection should cap off a wonderful evening that goes beyond expections--a wow factor. A bit more creativity and attention towards quality will help.

We we really disappointed in our maincourse. Lobster mac and cheese was rather tasteless and not very cheesy. My husband's seafood dish was just ok..lots of arugula!! We had the brushetta which would have been better with a little less whipped cream cheese but was tasty with the abundance of tomatoes.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
