We visited on a Thursday night. The menu looked good and had a variety. We both ordered filet which turned out to be over cooked on a medium & medium rare temp. They offered to bring new steaks, but we declined as iwe were hungry. There were a few large parties and the waitstaff seemed stretched. We were not impressed... More

We had Chateaubriand which was cool but tender. Our waiter was hard to find. He presented us with a bill double our check. We won't go back but maybe to... More

This restaurant is upscale with a fantastic menu, cocktails and wine selections. Outdoor al fresco dining a big plus. Wonderful service. Lamb chops were enjoyed by my dining partners and I had a wonderful pasta dish.

My wife and I chose this iconic place for our 40th anniversary dinner. What a colossal disappointment! I called ahead and made a reservation for 7 pm on a Sunday night.I even asked if they had valet parking and was told they did. Unfortunately, they didn't say they do not have valet parking on Sundays. So I had to drop... More

We were introduced to Johnny's by a friend who took us there for a wonderful evening. We chose to sit in the bar area with an amazing piano player. We sang along while we enjoyed fantastic food and wine. If you are downtown so check this quaint place with great food out!!!
