1) Great ambiance/vibe. Definitely nailed the underground/retro speakeasy theme. Tasteful and inviting - not over the top.
2) Excellent and creative cocktails combined with very good food
3) Service is exemplary

Our favorite place to get away and indulge.

It took over an hr to get our puff appetizers but they gave us the deviled eggs to try for free while we waited and they were much better than expected

Honestly my favorite place to go for some cocktails. They have the best drinks and hands down the best old fashion. Service is always amazing. Vibe is on point. I had a birthday last weekend there and they went above and beyond. Super cool place!!! Go!

Food and drinks were amazing. The service was disappointing, we rarely were seen by any staff but saw them tending to other tables. It seemed short staffed, just wish they were a bit more transparent upfront so we would’ve adjusted our expectations on service. Would love to try to come again and see if things change.

I will say three main items are the reason I will come back and visit in the future. The drinks, amuze, and food which were fantastic, the live jazz music, and of course the Owner of Johnny's, Chef. If were not for him ,especially, and the other two items I mentioned, this review would be drastically different. I look forward to trying again at some point in the future

Wonderful place for a date night or girls night out! Such a fun laid back environment, wish there was more than 1 or 2 servers but I think that was apart of the aesthetic. The drinks were very tasty and so much fun and although they run about $15 a piece it's definitely worth it!

My girlfriend and I have made Johnny's our top pick for celebrating special occasions. Their cocktails are second to none and the food is extraordinary. They're doing an excellent job with safe practices amidst the COVID-19 pandemic and everything feels very safe. I highly recommend Johnny's to anyone who loves a well made drink and some delicious, unique food offerings!

This restaurant is SO. COOL. We came here when family came into town for a fun experience, and we certainly got it! We hoped the food would be good but did not expect it to be so delicious and unique. We were very pleasantly surprised by everything! The service was excellent, and our drinks were all served in unique ways as well. I don’t want to spoil anything, but this place is definitely worth a visit. The food, ambiance, and drinks are all on point. We will be coming back!

My date and I had the most amazing time at this secret bar. From the moment we sat down to the moment we left we were so impressed by the service and the unique drink offerings! We did not end up ordering entrees, but we plan to come back and get dinner next time as well.

I had two first-timers in my group who were thrilled with the drink presentations and really didn't want to leave, but we had other plans. The dark, intimate atmosphere of Johnny's is always a draw and I expect to be back soon with a couple of these ladies.

This was by far the best date I have ever been on, johnnys was such a awesome experience overall. The food was great, the drinks were outstanding and service was amazing too. The only thing that was a little hard to adjust to the lighting because it was a little to dark inside. But everything was so cool, amazing experience and definitely 5 star treatment!!! I couldn’t stop telling my friends and family how awesome it was there :)

Went tonight for my boyfriends birthday and we have the absolute best time. We ordered half of the food menu and didn’t find a single thing we didn’t enjoy, particularly the rosemary lamb chops (absolutely PERFECT) and the beef spinach pasta (can’t remember exactly what it was called). Make sure you save room for the Creme Brûlée. TOP. TIER. We thought we were full but couldn’t bear to leave a single bite of it left in the dish. The drinks were AMAZING. The Smokey manhattan was one of the best we’ve had, and I particularly enjoyed the Aviation 75. I made a comment about enjoying espresso martinis so the bartender made me his version of it and I was NOT disappointed. If you go, sit at the bar and cross your fingers you get Jordan, he was phenomenal. Super cool atmosphere, very romantic and intimate speakeasy vibes. The whole process is so fun and absolutely worth a Friday (or any day ending in Y) night. Can’t wait to see what they do with Mr. B’s up top!!

We had an incredible date night at Johnny’s. Such a unique venue and authentic speakeasy experience. The food was delicious and the artistic cocktails were pricey, but out of this world! Highly recommend.

One of the coolest places I’ve ever been to drink and dine. The vibe is totally unique, background music funky throwback, cocktail list SUPER interesting, and yet food it totally inspired! I figured it would miss on at least ONE of those fronts, but was just PERFECT. Johnny even came out of the kitchen to complete a perfect evening. We’ll be back soon for sure!!!
