With windows as two of its walls, diners get to see and be seen at a bustling corner of activity in Palm Springs (which made dinner here on Halloween night particularly eye-popping, in a good way). The staff knows every dish down to the last exacting detail and were very good about accommodating vegetarian or vegan requests (even if they... More

Saves me a trip to Vienna and the Jet Lag! When visiting Palm Springs it is a must to visit Johannes from Austria. When with Friend take nice seating in the Restaurants when alone going to the Bar and have my Wienerschnitzel In Business for a decade, Johannes made himself a great reputation with his refined eclectic European dishes and...

Top notch food and customer service. Very classy place without being pretentious. Expensive, but a lovely evening on the town.

I have never had a bad experience here, although I do thinkbthe prices tend to be a bit on the high side. The menu has a lot of Austrian dishes, but it beers off in some pretty eclectic directions. Excellent service and ambience!

Excellent restaurant. Always consistent. Great food. Superior service. I started with the sweet onion soup. It was delicious. Followed up by the curry chicken. It too was out of this world. Good size portions. Not too much but definitely more than I expected at a fine dining establishment. This is one of my top five restaurants in the desert. Full... More

I have eaten at Johannes on each of several annual visits over the last 4-5 years....consistently superb food and equally superb service. it is pricey but when you know that you will get a first rate meal, the cost is not so bothersome. Their mushroom soup first course is truly outstanding and not to be missed.

Johannes is a pleasant restaurant for a night out. The service is good, but there's nothing spectacular about the food. The prices are a bit high, even by Palm Springs standards. I was disappointed with the Schnitzel, and my friend thought the pork chops merely okay.

I have visited this establishment on a couple of previous occasions but I have had mixed feelings: it is certainly a professional restaurant but somehow I was never quite sure that I had enjoyed the experience. This time I left happier. We both had the mushroom soup, followed by, in my case by a pork chop, whilst my fellow diner... More

We enjoy going to Johannes Restaurant every trip to Palm Springs. We sit in the bar, and I order the wiener schnitzel from the bar menu. We also the enjoy the appetizers that are available along with our cocktails. The restaurant really is worthwhile to go to.

Here's the thing: you are treated like you are imposing when you make a reservation; you are greeted arrogantly; you are treated well by a waitress who treats the numerous regulars much better. Mushroom soup which is really herb soup with a few mushrooms us $12. The schnitzel was excellent! The food was very good but in Palm Springs you... More
