We generally keep Johnny's for special evenings, this past visit was much less than special. Very disappointed with the salmon special served with risotto. Although I ordered the salmon at a medium rare temperature, it was served dry, well and fishy tasting. Not what we expect from Johnny's. We paid over $40 for the "special" .

This spot is old world renaissance with truly amazing food. Pasta Puttanesca is a must. Fresh fish specials & warm wood tones are very inviting.

Before Cleveland's restaurant scene took off, Johnny's was one of the best in town. I'm not sure if it's actually declined since then or it only appears to have fallen off because there are now so many great places to compare it to. My recent lunch at Johnny's was a huge disappointment. The entry smelled like dirty mop water. The... More

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 were directed to Johnnie's bar but it was overrun by football fans. We went to the restaurant which had few customers. Our waiter recommended a wine. It wasn't great. 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

Went on a weeknight when the restaurant had only a few tables filled in the main dining room. (Had asked if the outside was open but they said they did not think it was set up -it was). Were seated immediately then waited over 10 minutes before anyone realized we were there, (meanwhile a waiter went to the table near... 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.
