$30 dollar corkage too high

Had dinner with a group last weekend, excellent meal pretty good service but don't agree with one of highest corkage charges in valley. The meal itself was quite good, the person who had the schnitzel thought it was overcooked but the fish was excellent with a good presentation.

Good traditional european style food. Products are fresh and well prepared. But cooking would benefit to be lighter, less cream, less sauce,... Service is fine but has strange practice: the charge 18% gratuity upfront. The reason for this unusual practice: visitors in Palm Springs often do not give tips !

We've visited here numerous time before, & have other reviews of this restaurant here in Trip-Advisor... But an UPDATE is due... They are always busy, they've made quite a name for themselves over the years.. ~>>> But they are no longer on the cutting edge of culinary creations! The food is fine, just fine...aside from a single entree special, it... More

We really enjoyed our food. The schnitzel was excellent. The chicken curry was well spiced. The trout appetizer was succulent as was the asparagus soup. We made a mistake when we got seated. They offered us a seat upfront which seemed a bit busy or something in the backroom. We took the backroom, not the main dining room, but that... More

The food and service at this restaurant is wonderful. We went on a Thursday evening which is usually the night of the downtown music festival; we did not have reservations but we got there just in time to get a table. It was a great meal and a great experience.

This restaurant was recommended to us by a friend in the industry as a 'must try'. We made the mistake of not thinking we'd need a reservation on the particular Saturday we went. It was very busy and instead of not waiting upwards of an hour we decided to sit at the bar. There was a series of unfortunate events.... More

I came to Johannes because I wanted a Schnitzel, and I saw that they had a variety of options. However, I wasn't totally certain what to expect based on its location. Being at the corner of a street which I was informed by my cab driver was "all gays", I was open to being in that crowd in order to... More

Johannes is the best Austrian restaurant in the Coachella Valley. The food is consistently good and Johannes is a marvelous chef. This small restaurant is worth a visit when in Palm Springs.
