Very good, but not memorable.

We visited during Restaurant Week in Palm Springs and found the experience good, but not exceptional. There are other places, we think, with better fare, but Johannes is in a very convenient location.

We just found this restaurant in May when we were out to Palm Springs. It is much more than just schnitzel so don't want to mislead but that was what all four of us had. Their schnitzel's, depending on the sauce are $24 to $28 but if you can get a seat at the bar or the twosome tables along... More

This restaurant is one of the first to bring incredible flavors and service to Palm Springs, in small intimate venue. From the moment you walk in, to the end, is perfection. We had the rack of lamb, sweetbreads and wiener schnitzel. What can i say, just perfect. My only suggestion, would be to put candles on the tables in the... More

This is one of those hidden gems in Palm Springs. We never visit enough. The food was excellent. We had the Prosciutto & Duck Breast Wrapped Pork Tenderloin and the Ricotta. Our server has been there 10 of the 15 years the Restaurant has been open and is excellent. I am embarrassed to say that I did not remember her... More

This place has always been a favorite of my boss and his husband and they took my mom and I over Memorial Day weekend. Now I am a fan as well. The decor is fairly elegant and people were pretty casually dressed so it's not a stuffy place but I would still avoid shorts and tank tops at dinner personally.... More

Why we have not gone in before now I'll never know because this is a Great Place! Very contemporary decor, small bar area with two cafe tables and 5 outside tables. First impression of the offerings from Chef Johannes Bacher seem like those you find in a 3 or 4-diamond restaurant. And this the won the prestigious "Best Continental Restaurant... More

... but last night's experience wasn't as good as others. We've been to Johannes several times and really enjoy it, although it's a bit on the pricey side. Dinner last night met with mixed reviews. Our salads were excellent -- brussels sprouts and burrata with tomato. But the main courses were disappointing. Partner and friend tried the scallops and sea... More

Food was great, service was very good, prices a bit on a high side but I guess acceptable for Palm Springs. I gets a bit noisy since this is one of those open concept restaurants.

California is in a severe drought, we get it. Those of us who live here are working hard at conservation methods. This restaurant, once a favorite of locals and tourists alike, is taking advantage of the situation to attract what they thought would be good publicity. California already has a ban on serving customers water unless they ask but this... More
