    Delicious food; steaks cooked to perfection. Salad was crisp and cold, and the French onion soup is the best anywhere in the Denver area. Service from Cynthia, our waitress, was outstanding. She was cordial, attentive and an absolute delight. She missed nothing, and had a charming sense of humor. Our hostess at the front desk was also extremely friendly and accommodating, and she even checked in on our table a couple of times to make sure all was well. This was not our first visit to Johnny’s Italian Steakhouse, and it certainly will not be our last.

    Wesley was awesome. He’s Super friendly, outgoing & personable. Extremely food & beverage knowledgeable. Food was very good & well crafted. Portion sizes are perfect. I will be back to try more entrees. Great ambiance & seating options. Only ask, please look into getting clear ice for whiskey pours & old fashioned. Overall, Johnny’s is the spot!!!

    I’ve been here multiple times in the past and always appreciated every aspect of my dining experience. This was disappointing to say the least. Service was the biggest issue, and being seated in the bar area when I requested the dining room made the noise level terrible to have conversations. The waiter had almost no personality and that was after waiting 10min just to get a drink order in. He also neglected to remove the large menus from the table and later left multiple appetizer plates which we had to ask that he remove them. Typical service in the past including great bread with herb infused oil for dipping. This time we had to ask for bread even though it’s listed as part of the entree, and it came with a tiny blob of butter in a plastic cup. Fortunately the food all tasted great! For $75/person, I expected better service. Very disappointed since my previous visits.

    Very disappointed in the Easter Brunch menu, very very limited. Was embarrassed after taking my older mom and 90 yr old father in law. Food was ok. We have had great dinners here, but Easter Brunch was disappointing. Service left a great deal to be desired, slow and not caring. I would recommend the dinner menu, definitely not brunch!

    Don’t be off put that this restaurant is inside a Hilton Garden Inn. We dine out at nice restaurants frequently so if you don’t relate it to the idea of it being in a mid hotel, It’s surprisingly good, good service and relatively quiet. I think some people may be deterred by the location but it’s definitely worth giving a try and you might be pleasantly surprised!

    They gave us food, took our plates before we could eat our appetizers. Bummer! Carbonara was absolutely amazing!! Pasta demonstration enjoyable. Pappardelle and spinach ravioli not as flavorful. Didn't care for beet soup or almond cheesecake with chunks of almonds. Loved the homemade whipped cream, raspberry coulis, and lemon curd served with the dessert!! Would go again. Good for the price.

    Staff was friendly and we were seated right away. Menu has a variety of items that warrant a return visit, but we both had steaks and they were superb. Our server Cicily, was attentive without being overwhelming and thoughtfully packed our desserts to go as requested. Price point was absolutely reasonable for the entire meal experience. We will definitely be back, and bring family.

    We made a spur of the moment reservation for Valentine’s evening and were accommodated no problem through OpenTable. Although it’s technically attached to a Hilton Garden Inn and across the lot from a Freddy’s Steakburger and a Burlington Coat Factory, this place is a legit steakhouse! It had a very nice atmosphere with classy modern booths and tables, with some Sinatra softly playing in the background. The entire staff was so attentive and pleasant. Alice was our wonderful server with a great attitude and fun, warm personality. She and the other support staff kept our water glasses full and our empty plates were removed quickly. We had excellent cocktails (a martini and a Manhattan), and when we were nearly finished, we were asked if they could get us another. Our food was delicious- from the Italian sausage-stuffed mushrooms (yum!), to the house salads, to the Veal Parmigiana and Parmesan-crusted NY strip. We skipped dessert this time, as we were both so full! Our food did take a touch longer to come out from the kitchen, but understandable on a busy holiday evening. Overall we had a very enjoyable experience and we both highly recommend Johnny’s Italian Steakhouse. We absolutely will be returning.

    Understand I am really picky about Steak Houses so a 4 stars is good. 5 is Elway’s or the Palm or Capital Grill. Jonny’s is not at that level but just a tad below and a great option for a nice evening and good food. Atmosphere is relaxed and service was amazing. We will definitely be back.

    We love Johnny's and it has become our regular spot for date night. The service is very inconsistent. This time our waiter was clueless - we asked for a few things and he kept forgetting. We had to grab another waiter to get our request. I finished my cocktail and he never asked if I wanted another, and never cleared the glass. This is in contrast to our first experience there. The bartender was our waiter and the service he provided was impeccable.

    We were at the restaurant two years ago for anniversary and it was so good. That’s why we decided to come back this year. The steak I ordered wasn’t good. I could’ve gotten a better steak at Texas Road House for more than half of your price . Our waitress didn’t refill our water glasses. Had to ask her ask her. We asked for more bread she never brought it. She never asked how our meal was. We were really disappointed that we decided to come to your restaurant to celebrate an anniversary and will not be coming back to your restaurant in the near future. Sorry if this offends but I believe in telling the truth about our experience.
