Each time I send a client to Johannes, they tell me that they had the most wonderful experience they can hardly wait until the restaurant opens the next day to go back! The food is superb and the staff is wonderful.

Ok the Food was good,They know what they are doing in the kitchen. The service friendly, efficient and knowledgeable. They have a very nice wine room and thus selection. However if your going for ambiance it doesn't have any. It is somewhat stark not at all romantic. If your on a budget this isn't for you. The average entrée is... More

I actually ate BY MYSELF at one of the high top front bar tables, overlooking the hostess stand. And I can sincerely say (nobody is nudging me) this was a peak life experience. The service was superb, punctual and attentive without being the slightest bit obtrusive. The Chef's choices for Thanksgiving were off the charts imaginative and exceedingly well executed.... More

Had dinner there last night. The service is excellent. Had a marvelous special dish of black cod and shrimp, preceded by a ahi tuna carpaccio and avocado appetizer. The wine list is very good also.

A very popular restaurant in Palm Springs. Johannes is known for dishes that you not find in many restaurant such as venison, boar and other exotic meats. The restaurant is known for its Wienerschnitzel and other Austrian dishes. A little noisy but worth a visit

The food here is perfection, really everything is great...nice wine list and the staff knows what they are doing...if they make a recommendation..take it ! I go back every time I'm in the desert and you should too :)

Had a wonderful dinner here two weeks ago when we were in Palm Springs for the BNP Paribas tennis tournament. We've been here before and enjoyed a great meal. We were not disappointed this year. Had a nice drink at the cute bar after walking through the Palm Springs weekly arts festival. Then went to our table, which was just... More

Johannes is definitely not a fatty/starchy Wiener Schnitzel place - the food was nicely presented and very tasty. Our starters (shredded Brussels sprout salad with pancetta and roasted beet salad with chevre) were excellent. My partner was very happy with the beef tenderloin and I had the roast duck, which may not have been the most slimming choice but was... More

Johannes is a great place to go for great food. Our server brought us 4 small slices of baguette and flavored butter after we ordered. We shared a brussel sprout salad and I had the scallops and my husband had the wiener schnitzel. We finished our bottle of wine before our entrees came so our server brought complementary glasses of... More

Just came back from a wonderful meal at Johannes, thinking that it certainly is will rank in our top ten (five?) for a long time to come! We had high expectations based on the suggestion of a friend, but some concern based on some of the reviews here. Fear not, at least with an Austrian meal: mushroom soup, schnitzel with... More
