Our server was very good. Not annoying yet not absent. The food was delicious. We sat outside which was very nice. The only downside was that it was a little loud. Other than that everything was great!

Our waiter was pretty good except in one area, keeping drinks filled. He may have had other tables to serve and they may not have had enough staff, however, it is up to management to fill in the gaps as much as possible. The food was pretty good. The waiter had good recommendations.

The flavors were what I expected from Johnny's and my whole family enjoyed their dinner.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
