Johnny's Italian Steakhouse - Olathe Ratings and Reviews
We have really enjoyed Johnny's every time we've dined there. This time we spent some time at the bar while waiting for friends and discovered the beautiful bar area and a fun atmosphere. Joseph, the bartender, really engaged all the patrons and made it so much fun! When dining, we had wonderful service, the food was delicious and once again we had a great dining experience.
I would have had a better steak at the nearby Texas Roadhouse.
My expectations were high as Johnny's bills itself as a quality restaurant. But the disappointment began right after entering the front door.
I had reservations for 9. The restaurant was open until 10. Yet there was no one at the front desk to greet me and my party. I walked around, not seeing any staff, until I walked into the bar and mentioned I had reservations but there was no one to seat us. He looked around and, not finding whoever he was looking for, seated us and left to find our waitress.
Ok, no big deal, perhaps they were getting high in the back.
To accompany my meal I ordered a California Merlot and my wife had the only German white wine on the menu which was a Reisling from the Mosel region. My wine was served hot; hotter than room temperature as if the bottle was stored in the kitchen and much warmer than a red should be served. My wife's white wine was appropriately chilled and actually quite sweet as she likes and so I asked to see the bottle so I could remember the maker and vintage. I was unhappy to see the $8 small glass of wine she had came from a bottle that I knew sells for $7 retail ("Relax" brand)
I ordered a ribeye steak expecting to receive a nice thick, marbled steak. Instead the steak was about 3/4 inch thick and lean. It was accompanied by 2 cups of mashed potatoes (a ridiculous amount) and a plain Caesar salad with bottled dressing. My wife's filet was similarly thin and dry.
We skipped the dessert and left.
This restaurant was a true disappointment. It masquerades (and prices it's menu) as a quality restaurant when actually it is no better than Outback. The atmosphere and ambiance is nice but it doesn't make up for the poor quality.
We were excited to get Johnny's for restaurant week. The food and martinis were great. However, we had a 7:00 reservation and when we arrived at 6:55, we were told (rudely) it'd be a minimum of a 20 minute wait because "we just sat 15 tables!" I was surprised, because my understanding of a reservation is that it holds my spot... after our wait, we were seated at a high top table in the bar. Again, not what we were looking for. They had a great live musician that night, but it was SO loud that my husband and I basically screamed at each other the whole meal. This was definitely not the serene date night we were looking for. The food was good, but not good enough to return.
We visited Johnny's for the first time as part of KC's Restaurant Week and were impressed by the friendliness of the staff and the quality of the food. Our server, Willy, was attentive and helpful when he learned it was our first visit and helped us through the menu, making suggestions that proved to be good ones. We look forward to visiting again soon to try some of the other menu choices.
Not impressed and would not recommend to my friends. I want to give some allowances since it was restaurant week, but I only saw 2 large tables and about 3 other either 2 or 4 tops. Took along time to get our wine, in fact they were out of the bottle of wine we requested and instead of giving us another bottle of equal or better value for the same price, they gave us back to pick another so we just order a glass of wine. Took 45 min for appetizers and then 20 min later our meal which I felt was just okay food and not fantatic.
We went to Johnny's during Kansas City Restaurant week for the first time. We didn't realize it was part of the Hilton Garden Inn. The steak and pasta weren't bad. The stuffed mushrooms and crap coquettes, were less than expected. While we knew the lunch would be a fixed price of $15 each, we were very surprised when we go the bill to see the prosecco we ordered were $11 each.
The room was nicely arranged fro the office party we had. The convenient bar just outside the dining room was great as we all filtered in for the meal. Great bar host. Joe has the job down to an art. The food was wonderful, great selection and service, and all was clean and decorated tastefully. Some review may not have rated price friendly, but for the meals and service we got, I would say just about right in the ball park for a better place to eat.
We were celebrating our anniversary, and decided to stay close to home. Service was okay, however, i ordered filet medallions medium, and the other two steaks at our table were ordered medium rare, and theirs were done medum and mine was medium rare. I sent it back to have them correct, however when it came out the inside was still rare and the outside tasted like burnt meat. Extremely disappointing.
Food was good, wait staff were struggling and even with open table we had to wait at least 15 min at the bar. On the walk to the bar we passed at least 3 tables that we would have been happy to sit at. Bar service took 10 min. Or waiter was ok, food was pretty good but not a place to repeat, they need to work on their experience and timing.
My husband and I went for our anniversary dinner at 5:re were only 3 other tables and 1 couple at the bar. We were seated immediately by a nice hostess. Our waiter came over about 2 minutes later telling us he was training and bring us water. When he brought the water he suggested an appetizer and said he'd be back. He had yet to take our drink order or point out the drink menu. He was gone before we could say anything. When he returned he asked if he could get an appetizer put in. My husband responded that we'd like to order drinks. He said okay (no "Oh, I'm sorry about that.") The drinks from the bar were great.
The house salad states on the menu that it is served family style. When I inquired if we'd need to order the same salad dressing, they said yes. We also asked for no tomatoes if there were any. The trainee said no problem and the trainer said, "They're just grape tomatoes you can take off." Salads arrived separately plated, one with tomatoes and one without. the brought out mediocre bread. They tell you there is Parmesan cheese and olive oil for dipping but did not provide a plate in addition to each of our bread plates.
Our food was timed well following the salad anc bread. My ribeye and husband's prime rib were cooked to order and the garlic mashed potato side was good and a nice sized portion. They did comp a dessert for our anniversary. We choose a chocolate lava cake with cinnamon ice cream. Like our other food, it was good.
Service and details that warrant their price point: F
This isn't my first time at Johnny's, but it was a bit different. There were 3 people in my group and it was a business dinner. For some reason, it seemed as though we were being rushed out from the time we ordered the first appetizer. We ordered the Shrimp Brochetta which was very good. It just seemed that the salads were coming quickly after the appetizer followed immediately by the dinner and check. I wasn't feeling the love this time. I felt somehow the staff was trying to sabotage my business dinner. It wasn't really busy either. I ordered the crab stuffed snapper. They seem to use the Bumble Bee crabmeat in the can to make their stuffing. Didn't really taste like crab, but looked like it. Nothing to write home about.
I was in Olathe for a conference last week and this restaurant came highly recommended for their steaks. I ordered the not cheap rib eye and it was basically inedible. It was full of gristle. The waiter was attentive, the ambience was great, and the wine list was sufficient. The food was mediocre. The bread was stale, the mashed garlic potatoes were good, and the greens were soggy. Terribly disappointed. I will not be returning.
We were a party of 4. We were seated quickly but our waiter was a bit less than attentive.
We tried to order a bottle of wine only to be told "sorry, we're out of that". We waited for our drink order which was delivered when our appetizer was delivered. I ordered a smothered steak and asked for it to be Medium Rare. We waited a long time for our dinner to be served and I was asked if my steak was cooked OK? It was so overdone but we were so hungry I didn't want my dining guest to have to wait for another steak to be cooked. Our server was removing our plates as soon as we put our forks down. He tried to take my sons plate and he wasn't even finished with his dinner. This restaurant should retrain their servers. No plates are to be removed BEFORE all the guests are finished. I felt that we were being rushed out the door.
Food is great have been here several times before. Hostess seemed in a hurry to seat us and the server acted like she didn't want to be there. There was only 3 other tables in the restaurant but server would disappear for long periods of time, then acted annoyed when we asked for an appetizer or more bread.
We enjoyed a very good meal at Johnny's for Mother's Day. However, we didn't expect to be in a banquet room and a buffet at the hotel instead of the actual restaurant. Live music was nice, food was good (prime rib and desserts were outstanding) but the atmosphere was a disappointment.
This restaurant has a nice menu with many dishes that appeal. However, a number of elements of the experience do not fulfill the promise of the menu. To start, one of our orders differed between what we ordered and what was delivered. They made it right, but meanwhile I had to eat my dish (lest it be cold) while my companion waited for her replacement.
The food was well prepared, but had overtones of commercial kitchens that pre-cook items for later finishing. I suppose the downside of a large menu is that the preparations are not likely to be cooked entirely to order in all cases. The wine list had a number of bottles that looked good, and the wines by the glass were a well-rounded selection.
