    This is our second time coming to Johnny's and we already can't wait to come back! A definite date night or night out hit! Drinks were fantastic and the whiskey/bourbon selection is pretty good! The food is also excellent!

    Easy to find, friendly staff to assist entry to the speakeasy and waitress. Ambiance was adorable and they have live music on Sundays. Drinks were delicious. Lobster bisque was creamy and delicious. Lamb was underwhelming due to lack of seasonings. Crème brûlée was sweet and creamy. Will come back but to try a different entree.

    Not the place it used to be… issues getting in, nobody would answer the phone, now that they are using a reservation site it doesn’t text you a code — at least it didn’t for us — drinks were watered down, steak came out cold (server scraped it off my plate rather than take the whole thing back), lobster was way over salted… the only thing that seems to still be good is the crème brûlée. Seems they have over complicated the menu and experience, when it was incredible when they first got going. For $225 plus 20% it’s not worth it.

    Check out this hidden gem in Royal Oak and you won’t be sorry. I have eaten here about 3 times… initially ordered off the regular menu, secondly for their Sunday seafood feast with live jazz and lastly for New Year’s Eve. The 5 course surf and turf feature (+ bacon wrapped dates, lobster bisque soup, duck confit salad, cherry crème brûlée) was amazing on all levels and portions were very generous. Sure the food is salty and buttery but you are treating yourself to something you otherwise wouldn’t eat at home or on a daily basis, so indulge and enjoy it!!!!!

    Fun idea but not crazy impressed with the full experience. It was fun trying to find the door outside. Once inside, the room was very nice with dark walls and candle lite tables. The food in my opinion was overpriced for what you received. Have Been to many nice restaurants and they could have turned the food up a notch for the price. The waitress was a bit cold and reserved but maybe that was part of it. She handed me a cocktail napkin and said this is for your drink… lol I don’t think that was part of the experience. So I then picked up my drink and put it on the napkin. Very good drink menu, though only had 1 cocktail. Would maybe go again for drinks only.

    The food was delicious, and the overall experience was unique and fun. However I believe it is a bit over priced, especially the drinks. $17-20 per drink. I was shocked by that.

    Date night. Server was friendly and attentive. My wife wasn’t drinking that night so she asked them to make her a mocktail. She said it was one of the best mocktails she has ever had. I had their version of an Old Fashioned. It was incredible. Food was absolutely delicious as well. Would highly recommend.

    Needed to eat early before a show. The restaurant is downstairs in the basement space and romantic, dimly lit and quiet Music was starting around 7 after we left. We got the Vietnamese ribs and the lamb pasta Ragu with homemade paparadelle noodles. The drinks (wine and cocktail) were generous pours. The ribs and ragu sauce featured meltingly tender meat. The only mild criticism, is the pasta could have been hotter. Service was attentive. Lovely spot.
