Johnny's Italian Steakhouse - Peoria
My mom and I went to Johnny’s Italian Steakhouse as part of a play date/special weekend. We loved the food, service and ambience. Our service was excellent and the food - filets, salad, potatoes and bread tasted great. ( I think our server was Sarah.)
Before going, I wasn’t sure that I would like the restaurant as it’s part of the Holiday Inn. It has a very nice atmosphere, it’s really good and worth the visit. The restaurant is independent from the hotel.
I would recommend the restaurant to others.

Great food! Colton was a terrific server!
Terrific service. Great food and very clean. Enjoyed the quiet evening.
Johnny’s is great!
Absolutely delicious food as ALWAYS!! With dining outside ambience not quite the usual but loved the fire pit in the middle. One of my all time favorite date night restaurant!
So glad to have you back. It was so good to see Melissa and Tara back in action and reconnect with friends. The Patio is beautiful.
Good selection (steaks, pasta, seafood, chicken) and presentation; excellent taste, good portion size. Great desserts. Only thing lacking was espresso but the coffee was great. Wine selection good and reasonable.
Our waiter Ted was awesome! The service he provided was top notch. When asking questions about specific questions in regards to menu items he was very informative and knowledgeable. The lighting, table setting, and menu were very suitable for a Friday date night celebrating my wife’s birthday.
We took friends from out of town for dinner at Johnnie's Italian Steak House. The setting and decor reminded me of a speakeasy club. Very classy. The wait staff were attentive and made us feel they were taking care of us.
The meal was started with appetizers and drinks. The main course was delicious. I'm sorry that we were so comfortable with the meal we did not order dessert.
We will definitely be coming back to enjoy this jewel.
I took my wife out for he birthday. The vibe was right and the service was excellent. The calamari was fresh and the salads was amazing The waiter even brought out a huge pice of turtle cheesecake (highly recommend) for my wife to help her celebrate her special day.
I definitely will be back soon!
Jeff thank you for the wonderful review. I am so happy to hear you enjoyed the celebration! I will be sure to share your compliments with the team! We hope to dine with you again soon!
Fourth time visiting Johnny's Italian Steakhouse, was amazing as always. Food came out exactly as we wanted. Our groups can always be a bit picky, however, the server was on point and didn't miss a beat. Would highly recommend Johnny's, especially to people from out of town or staying at the hotel it is attached to.
Brittney thank you for the kind words and continued support. We greatly appreciate it! So happy you always enjoy and hope to dine with you again soon!
This place is amazing. Classy, yet relaxing. The waiters are professionals, yet friendly, timing every part of the meal, so you do not feel rushed. And the food is out of this world and very reasonably priced. Definitely will return!
Mary thank you for the kind words. I am so happy to hear you enjoyed everything! Makes us so happy! We look forward to dining with you again!
Staff were lovely but food was just horrible - why all the good reviews? Pastas were very, very bad - is there some kind of Open table ratings scam happening here?
Thank you for the review. I am disappointed to hear your meals did not meet expectations. I have shared with management. I appreciate you bringing to our attention. Thank you.
They built a room for V Day. It sucked and that is where they put us rather than the main part of the restaurant.
Never disappointed. Excellent service our waitress Amy has served us several times and always makes our dinner a special occasion. Amy is very attentive and great attitude. The food is always outstanding. Couldn't ask for a better experience.
Terrance thank you for the kind words and continued support. I am so happy to hear you always enjoy your experience and I will be sure to share your compliments with Amy. We hope to dine with you again soon!
We had a group of 10 so if the noise was awful it wasn't noticed by our group. Very pleasant atmosphere, the wait staff was very personable, pleasant and greeted us all with a warm welcome. The food was excellent. Thank you for your hospitality.
Kara thank you for the 5-stars and recommendation. I am so happy to hear you all enjoyed your evening! Thank you for the support. We hope to dine with you all again soon!

Great place to have lunch. Met with a group of 7 of us and we were able to eat in a comfortable atmosphere. Great food! We were also able to have a small business meeting afterwards. Highly recommend this place for a business lunch!

I wouldn’t get the prime rib again but the other steaks were good. Our appetizer sampler was very good.
The lava cake desert was a little dry.
Thank you for the feedback. I will be sure to share with our culinary team. We hope to dine with you again soon!
We had a great waiter! Made suggestions and gave us our space to chat when we wanted it!

Having been to Johnny's many times, this is the first time I'd been in about 5 years. I ordered the top sirloin, with the skillet potato and a malbec. Although the wine was good, I ordered the steak medium rare, and received a steak that was well done on one side to medium on the other. The blue cheese crust was basically a cm thick layer of breading with no blue cheese flavor, and the skillet potato tasted rubbery like it had been microwaved after sitting around for a few hours. Overall, I was not impressed and will most likely not be returning.
We have always enjoyed your establishment but this last visit was not great. My son's steak was difficult to chew, my pasta was over-cooked and the service was slow. We were there at 12:30 pm on a Sunday and there were only a few people in the restaurant, yet we waited a long time to get drinks, water refills, etc. I don't believe it was the waiter's fault - I believe he was the only person working. For what you pay, this was definitely not worth it.
The food was phenomenal, and our server had a wonderful sense of humor. The food came out in a timely manner.
Dave thank you for the 5-star review and recommendation. I am so happy to hear you enjoyed everything and hope to dine with you again soon!
We had dinner for New Year's Eve - 4 adults, 4 kids. The service and food was excellent. Portions are generous for sides, salads and bread.
Christie thank you for the 5-star review. I am so happy to hear you all enjoyed everything. Thank you for joining us on NYE. We hope to dine with you again soon!
Waiter was excellent and very prompt with food and refills. Great food as always!
David thank you for the review and recommendation. I am happy to hear you enjoyed everything. We hope to dine with you again soon!
Johnny's is a tried and true favorite - we go there whenever we have out of town guests or want to celebrate a special occasion - or just for date night. The food is consistently excellent and they have a wide variety to suit all tastes. This night, we dined with a table of 8 on a busy Friday before Christmas. The food was excellent as usual, but the service was very slow and not very attentive - not what we're used to experiencing at Johnny's. We all certainly enjoyed our meal despite the slower than normal service, but would suggest they increase staffing at such a busy time of the year.
Wendy thank you for the 4-star review and recommendation. I am happy to hear you all enjoyed your meals. I do apologize for the slow service and appreciate you letting us know. I have shared with management in hopes we can correct for the future. Thank you for all the support and we hope to dine with you again soon!
Made reservation for 6 people for 11:15 am lunch week before Christmas. Got there and could not find reservation but could get us a table. I had placed reservation on line and also called them to verify. I was put out with them for that - made me look foolish. Staffer did tell us they were short on help that day, very busy with holiday lunch parties. Food was good and wait staff did a good job, overall.
Louise thank you for taking the time to write your review. I am sorry for the inconvenience in regards to your reservation. Clearly an issue on our end. My sincere apologies. I appreciate you letting us know. I will be sure to address with management. I do hope you all enjoyed your meal and will give us another try. Thank you again.
I did not have as great of an experience as I was hoping for. Everyone talked about how great Johnny's Italian Steakhouse is in Peoria. The food was okay but not great. The salad was wilting and the entree was smaller than expected. The dessert, however, was larger than expected. I ordered a cocktail but had no idea of the price since prices were not listed on the menu. I would suggest adding the prices for both cocktails and martinis. Overall, the staff was great but it was not one of my most memorable meals.
Thank you for taking the time to write your review. I am very sorry to hear about your recent experience. We never want our customers walking away feeling very underwhelmed. We take a lot of pride in our food and service and I am sorry you did not get the Johnny's experience. I have shared your feedback with management and the culinary team. I appreciate bringing to our attention. I do hope you will consider dining with us again. Thank you.
Small portions. We did not care for the small family style salad. Was not enough for first serving even.
Thank you for taking the time to write your review. I have shared your review with management and the culinary team. We hope you will dine with us again!
Absolutely delicious! 1st time there and will for sure go back! Our wairtess, Amy, was fabulous!!!
Gwen thank you for the wonderful review and recommendation. I am so happy you enjoyed your first time dining with us and we look forward to dining with you again!
Food and service was excellent! The only complaint from our group was the cold temperature inside the restaurant...
Sandra thank you for the feedback in regards to the temperature in the restaurant. I have shared with management. I am happy to hear you all enjoyed your meals and received great service. We hope to dine with you again soon!
