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.

Everything is good. I really like the schnitzel with Jager sauce! Nice wine and cocktail list and wonderful service. Stephanie in the bar area is friendly, efficient and does a great job.

We sat at the bar and had excellent service. The food was incredible and very affordable. Staff was top-notch, friendly, and accommodating. Celebrated a birthday there and it was exceptional.

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.

A popular place with locals, which is always a good sign. A creative and imaginative menu, and the schnitzels are great, and big! But there's much more. The shrimp cocktail to start was was terrific, So was the heart stopping cheese spaetzle. The service was friendly and they knew their menu..

Not used to white table cloths with my schnitzel but it works. Great service, interesting take on traditional dishes and cocktails. Large portions lend themselves to sharing for variety. Not sure the resto feels this way.

We went here with someone who insisted this was the best restaurant in Palm Springs. Maybe it was but no longer. Our waiter told the table next to us that the namesake owner only comes in in the morning to set up specials and go over orders with his chefs; then he goes home at 4 to "enjoy a glass... More

The service was good, not excellent as the waiter forgot the request for salad without tomatoes. The atmosphere very noisy. As for the food, we split a Classic Schnitzel and it came with cucumbers in a dill cream sauce, cranberries and roast fingerling potatoes. The schnitzel came literally floating in cooking oil. The potatoes were not completely done. The best... More
