Service was horrible. The wait for everything from dinner to dessert to the bill was overkill
We had steaks which were both done just as we requested (which is not always the case elsewhere). They were fine. The service was fine given we told the waiter we were looking to dine and not rush. The manager came by to ensure things were going well for us. There was only one issue for us, but it was common to both of us and we found it significant. We ordered one alcoholic drink each, a glass of wine and a martini. The amount of wine, served in the typical wine glass, was notably less than we get anywhere else (about half!). The same was true for the martini - served in the standard martini glass but only filled up to more than a half inch from the top (as opposed to the usual martini, filled right up to the top). The costs for these drinks were at least as expensive as any other steak house, and more than some ($11 and $10 respectively). This was seen by us as a significant shortcoming in what could have been a fully great experience.
We were very impressed! Wednesday's lunch special is definitely a keeper, and would be great as a permanent menu item. I'm not particularly fond of pasta dishes, but my wife and I both had this special, and would come back for it! Our waiter was super and very personable. The only thing we found not great was that it took a little long for our lunch to be served, but the wait was well worth it!
Best steak in Madison. The wait staff is amazing. Definitely worth a visit!
Our service Patricia was the BEST!!! She was very attentive and welcoming, felt like family.
Excellent food and service. Would highly recommend and will defiantly come back.
Food was excellent and the service was outstanding. Would highly recommend!
Candice thank you for the 5-stars and recommendation. I am happy to hear you enjoyed everything and we hope to dine with you again soon!
My second time there, both experiences were wonderful! I do think our server had too many tables, but still did a great job!
Diana thank you for the 5-star rating. I am happy to hear you have enjoyed both visits. We hope to dine with you again soon!
We had a lovely meal. Portions to price maybe off a bit for steaks but either way was good. They forgot my toppings for the crusted steak onions cheese and Portabella mushrooms. Very nice atmosphere.

We gathered to celebrate a relatives Bday & had a wonderful time. Our server was engaging and fun.
Hello, thank you for celebrating with us, we are so glad to hear you enjoyed your experience. We look forward to seeing you again, soon!
Great food. Slow service. Front desk knew it was my husbands birthday but didn’t relay it to the waitress. Didn’t get offered a free birthday dessert till we already had dessert and paid the bill. Disappointed.
Thank you for your review. My sincerest apologies for your experience. Couple things. The host should have relayed the message and the server should have asked if you were celebrating anything so major miss twice on us. I have shared your review with management to use as a learning opportunity. I do hope you will give us another try. Thank you!
We never got our appetizers, another waitress supposly took ours. At least that’s what our waitress said. I had stuffed shrimp, it was served cold and blah! Seriously no taste, couldn’t even eat my whole meal. My side was cold as well, I mean not even luke warm. It was like it was taken out of the refrigerator and put on my plate. My wife had a mussel soup, most of the mussels had no meat in them and they didn’t even have a small forks to open the mussels. Salad and bread was good, service was ok. The lady was very young and she was trying. Wasn’t even a busy night, many open tables and we were there at 7pm on a Saturday night.
We really enjoyed the atmosphere when so many other restaurants are so noisy. Very attentive staff and good food. Steak prices were very reasonable and liked the big salad bowl and bread. Overall a very nice experience!
Thank you for your 5-star rating and recommendation. I am so happy to hear you enjoyed your experience and meals. We hope to dine with you again soon!
Nice atmosphere and music. Excellent service. Delicious food. Would recommend and would go back.
Thank you for the wonderful review and recommendation. We hope to dine with you again soon!
Chose this as it was close by our hotel. All three of us had the medallion trio filet and they were fantastic. Started off with stuffed mushrooms. Also very good. Would definitely eat here again. Worth your time for an excellent meal.
Thank you for the great review. I am so happy to hear you all enjoyed your meals. The Trio was a great choice! We look forward to dining with you again soon!
Our experience at Johnny's was wonderful. We were pleasantly surprised to have such a great restaurant attached to the hotel in which we were guests!

Hi Renee, we are so glad to hear you enjoyed your experience. We look forward to seeing you again, soon!
Date night for me and my husband of 32 years. Spent time in the bar before dinner. Had nice conversation with the bartender, James. He was very attentive and made me a great martini. The dining room was quiet and clean. Our food was outstanding and look forward to returning to Johnny’s.
Hello, thank you for your amazing review. We are so thrilled to hear that your experience exceeded expectations. We hope to dine with you again, soon!
I believe this is just an automatic email I have sent an email about my experience and it’s been a few days and I am surprised I have not heard anything back a little disappointed I am looking forward to hearing back from somebody as soon as possible
Music was a little loud and hard to talk over but the restaurant itself was reasonably quiet. LOVED our Waitor, John. Very professional and polite :)

Both service and food were excellent. The meal was a bit pricey but you do get what you pay for.

Our reservation was at 7:45. We arrived early but were told our table would be ready at 7:45. Went to the bar. Took 10 minutes to get our drinks after we ordered them. The bartender asked me 3 times if I wanted my martini dirty. Three times I told him no. By 8:05 we weren’t called to our table. It was finally ready at 8:20 . No apology. The snarky host had big holes in his ears that looked bloody and it was hard to look at him ( gross). He never apologized for our table being 35 minutes late. Our waitress got my husband’s potato order wrong. Our food took about 30 minutes. Needless to say we ate after 9:00! Won’t go back and wouldn’t recommend.
Food and atmosphere was great. Having a reservation for 7:45 and not being sat until 9 was disappointing. Very limited response from the host table other than being told every 15 minutes that it would be another 15 minutes. Seemed to be understaffed greatly.
We were seated 20 minutes after our reservation, our server was OK, and the food was a little slow but the food was all AMAZING!
Thank you for the review, we are glad you enjoyed your meal. I hope you will give us another try so we can provide a 5-star experience!
Tripp made our first time amazing great service,food was great and drinks.
Hi Lana, we are so glad to hear you enjoyed your first experience with us. We do look forward to dining with you again, soon!
We had a great first experience. It was a busy Saturday night, but we were accommodated within a reasonable window of our reservation.
Hi Nicole, we are so glad to hear you were accommodated and enjoyed your first experience with us! We look forward to dining with you again, soon!
We made reservations but didn't realize we could've been seated in the bar. It was very loud, and our server, while extremely nice, was so busy we literally spoke to her twice. Once to place our food order and again to bring our check. I felt bad for her, and would definitely prefer not to have a deserved table in the bar unless requested. Food was great!
The food was excellent. Our server was very nice. It dis seem to take a bit long between courses. Overall very happy with the experience .
Hello, thank you for dining with us and providing your feedback. We are so happy to hear you enjoyed your overall experience. Hopefully we will see you again soon!
Great food. My only complaint is that after making an early reservation, the hostess tried to seat us right in front of the door on a winter night. I would expect to get a better table without having to ask.
We loved the restaurant, but we did have a hard time finding it. Google maps showed it down the road farther and when we looked up the location online it never mentioned that it was in the Hilton Hotel. That would have been extremely helpful. Once we got there everything was great. We will certainly go back.

This was our second visit to Johnny's Italian Steakhouse in Sun Prairie. Our first visit was shortly after it opened and we had a mixed experience. We like the one on the west side so much that we wanted to give SP another shot. I'm glad we did. This time we were seated behind the main dining room, and the setting was more intimate (but not small at all) and comfortable. We ordered a bottle of Cline Zinfandel, which is always a safe choice for an inexpensive wine ($35). We had the sausage stuffed mushrooms as an appetizer. They were very tasty, and 5 seemed like the right number for the two of us, maybe just a little pricey at $10. Sadly, we had requested water and our appetizer was about gone by the time it arrived. I ordered the Filet Medallion Trio, medium, and they were definitely more rare than that. The server offered to take them back, but knowing I wouldn't be able to finish the entire dinner, I elected to eat the outer edges of the steaks and took the rest home - which were then perfect when reheated the next day. The three toppings were all excellent - I honestly couldn't say which was my favorite. My husband had the large filet, medium rare, with horseradish topping, and it was prepared perfectly and he said it was an outstanding steak. The warm focaccia bread with oil and family-style salad were also very good (maybe a little too dressed), and my baked potato and my husband's garlic mashed potatoes didn't disappoint. We topped the meal off by sharing the Roasted Banana Cheesecake which seemed like a cross between a banana bread-cake-cheesecake with a light salted butterscotch topping and was quite delicious.

Valentines Day Dinner. They were completely booked but, found a way to fit us in. Everything was excellent!
I am so happy to hear they were able to get you in and you enjoyed everything. We hope to dine with you again soon!
The food was fantastic. Filet for me and stuffed shrimp for my guest. Our service was not so great. Four or five other tables were seated, served and done before we received our meal. Nearly two hours from start to finish. I would go back but have a new server.
Hi Joe - while I am happy to hear you enjoyed your meals and I am very sorry to hear you did not receive good service. I appreciate you letting us know about the service so we can use as a learning opportunity. I do hope you will give us another try and we can give you the full Johnny's experience!
This was our second dining at Jonny's both times my wife and I were greeted and seated by friendly staff. Our waiter was pleasant and checked on us frequently without announce. The steaks were cooked to perfection.
Will dine here again.

Thank you for taking the time to post your review. I apologize for your experience. I know it is not enjoyable to enjoy dinner while it is chilly from the draft. I have shared your review with management in regards to the server being pushy to use as a learning opportunity with all of our servers. I am happy to hear you enjoyed your meals. I do hope you will give us another try. Thank you!
