We have been to Johannes several times over the last few years. The service has remained solid; in fact last night was the best - attentive but not overbearing. The Ecu (cucumber) Martini always refreshing. The food continues to shine. Whether it is the fish,...More

Boring bread (not warm) with pesto schmear offered (very poor quality). Schnitzel (House Specialty) was decent ... but accompanied by capful of cucumber salad and uninspired fingerling potatoes.

There were four of us for dinner and we had a wonderful time. Two of us had the Jager Schnitzel (wild mushroom, bacon, red wine sauce)-YUM! The other two had pork daily special and the ahi dinner. They both loved their dinners. Great martini list....More

Johannes gave me my first experience in restaurant bait and switch. Three of us ordered the schnitzel. With that, the waiter asks, "Would you like your sauce over the schnitzel or on the side?" We think nothing of it and reply, "over is fine." Menu...More

Went to Johannes while in Palm Springs to visit family. Being solo, I was able to be seated quickly even without a reservation. I had the Jager Schnitzel and have to say it was absolutely the best Schnitzel I’ve had since leaving Germany 25 years...More
