We have dined here many times and have been disappointed. We make it s point to stop here whenever in town. Food has always been consistently good and service professional yet unpretentious. Sleek modern decor gives rooms the perfect ambiance.

Service is impeccable, the Snitzel to die for, the corn chowder with crab meat even better, staff always on their game, delightful and attentive.

Tis is an upscale restaurant and the food is very good. The chef is excellent. Be prepared to send a little more here than other restaurants. There are always specials of the day.

From reservation to "Goodnight" our experience at Johannes was fabulous! But the key here is great food, great wine selection (and sold 3oz or 6oz - plus bottles). Great cocktails and the White Sangria with peaches and raspberries was perfect combination. Our server enticed us to order a seafood cocktail of tender lobster, scallops and shrimp tossed in a rich... More

We keep searching, but there don't seem to be any exceptional fine dining restaurants in Palm Springs proper. Johannes had an enthusiastic staff and excellent service, but the food was straightforward and very bland. We were seated in a windowless back dining room. The waiter did ask if I'd like salt and pepper for my Schnitzel, but I incorrectly assumed... More

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
