Had a great dinner here. I had ordered the salmon and it was outstanding. We were seated at the bar, at our own request and ended up staying as the very last customers and it was nice not to feel as if they were kicking us out.

During our recent trip to Palm Springs, we had the pleasure of visiting Johannes. We were intrigued by the German and Austrian cuisine with flavors pulled in from Italy and India. It was one of the best from our trip. I really enjoyed the laid back and casual dining room, the large portions, friendly service, & reasonably priced wine list.... More

Was graciously seated in the dining room - have eaten in the "kitchen" area previously. Service was quick starting with a great bottle of Malbec. However, it was downhill from there. Was disappointed in the escargot - chewy, and overwhelmed with the breadcrumbs and green herb butter. By far not the best. Next came the signature dish of schnitzel -... More

We really enjoyed our dinner! The Thai meatball appetizer is wonderful! The schnitzel (lemon and caper) dinner was also great. My husband enjoyed his tuna dish.

We tried Johannes for the first time and had dinner in the bar area. Their drinks were over-the-top excellent and had more alcohol than almost anything I've had recently. The food was good and the prices in the bar are reasonable.

This restaurant isn't really a German restaurant. Don't let that put you off - it's still great! The food is innovative and well prepared. I enjoyed the Jager Schnitzel recommended by others and was not disappointed. Husband thoroughly enjoyed the roast duck. We shared the Brussels Sprout salad, which was excellent: I'd never before had fresh sprouts that had not... More

Sent here by recommendation and it did not disappoint. The brussel sprout salad and roasted corn soup were special appetizers for the night. There were many interesting choices available on the menu, but we decided to try the veal schnitzel. Mine was the jager smothered in wild mushrooms and bacon sauce. Yummy.

Eclectic and top notch European food. Excellent wine list. Consistently good food, service and atmosphere. Special occasions and great for bringing out-of-town sophisticated diners to experience a bit of Europe in the desert.
