    French onion soup was excellent. Scallop appetizer was amazing. Waldorf salad was also very good. London mule was great for anyone that doesn’t like a super sweet drink.

    Reservation was at 7 seated at 740 first time we had anyone talk to us In the booth is when I flagged down Chris the manager after 8pm. He took our order. Our food came out at 830 we never got our salad or bread till after food came and we had no utensils to eat for 5 minutes after or food arrived. Worst service ever and on a Mother’s Day holiday was a disappointment. No compensation was asked or offered. We never had a waiter or dedicated wait person.

    Johnny's is typically a pretty good place to eat, however this experience was not very good. The hostess had us waiting 15-20 min past our reservation time, we were seated without menus and told they were being "wiped down". After two other tables were sat after us with menus, I had to return to the hostess and ask for menus where she insisted that they were still being "wiped down". We did not get service for quite some time, but once we got our food/appetizers going, the food does not disappoint. The food is what keeps me coming back here, the service has left something to be desired for sure.

    The reservation is not worth getting. Had to wait to be seated had to tell hostess 3 times I put a reservation in for outside dining. The outside heaters turned off. Just a terrible experience at this restaurant. You could tell the waiter hated his job and didn’t want to be there. I will never and recommend this restaurant to my friends or family.

    Restaurant is nice but sat us in a booth by the curtains. Was very noisy and busy. Seemed like we were sitting in a hallway. Food and service is average. Priced above other mid steakhouses. Steak was mis cooked and had to be sent back. Certainly not a special restaurant experience. Tried it once, probably won't go back

    We made reservations to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We were seated in the bar area, but had to ask to be moved to a table not next to the kitchen. Drink orders and appetizers were fine, until I had to hail a server, not ours, to ask for a second glass of wine for my wife. It took twenty minutes for that second glass of wine to arrive, but by then we were leaving. The entrees came out, and my wife’s was not prepared as requested. She asked to not have any asparagus, and the steak and crab cake came sitting on a bed of asparagus. Her steak was overcooked as well. The manager offered to make her another steak, but we had had enough. The manager comped our bill, as he should have, and we left. We have been there a number of times in the past, and have had wine spilled on one of our party, and poor service as well. It sure put a damper on what should have been a nice, celebratory evening. Oh well.

    I do enjoy this restaurant. I had a reservation and requested a quiet booth. We were seated in a semi booth in the bar area. If I knew this ahead of time, I would have cancelled my reservation. I was told that there were not enough servers to cover the main restaurant area ( where all the booths are) . When we left after our dinner, many of those booths were occupied by patrons. This left a bad taste in my mouth, no pun intended. This is the second time making reservations here that I felt like I had a bait and switch.

    Always enjoy Johnny's. Reservation tonight was to celebrate our anniversary. We were asked a bar hi-top was okay, we said no we prefer main dining away from the noise. Got seated in a booth in the bar near a loud group. Asked to move and were told they only had 2 servers, so not using the main dining area. Very disappointing.

    Food was just ok, nothing special. I had the prime rib and my wife had salmon. We got the stuffed mushrooms and they were greasy, also the chocolate cake for dessert and it tasted like a microwaved mug cake. Our waitress was really nice and helpful, the place was nice and clean but overall it was just an ok meal.

    Our food was very good and the variety of the menu is good. The wait staff was attentive and prompt. It was a little cool near the window, but it was snowing at the time. It is nice to have curtains to help separate the window tables from the rest of the room, helping privacy and noise.

    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.

    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!
