Great food

Went for a birthday party, the staff was very friendly and helpful. The food was delicious, I personally had the pork chop awesome! ! I sampled out of friends plates the filet mignon and sea bass which was great ;)

Celebrated my husbands 65th birthday. Excellent food (especially, the conch chowder) and best server. Thank you Gary. In the heart of Las Olas in Fort Lauderdale. It's an experience!

Johnny V is by far the best restaurant on Las Olas. It is the go to place for birthdays, anniversaries, holidays and just because. The variety of the menu is outstanding and the food is consistently excellent. The staff is friendly and welcoming.

We went here based on trip advisor reviews. It did not disappoint. We wanted to try some local flavours and the blue corn calamari and tuna poke were fresh and delicious. We chose salads for the main topped with grilled mahi mahi which was smokey and bbqued. The portions are very generous and therefore we couldn't fit in pudding which... More

This was a perfect dining experience. The wine list is boundless. We ordered a cheese course to start-it was delicious. Our drinks were ideal as were our entrees. Dessert was equally dazzling... Goat cheesecake with a baklava crust! The ambiance, music, and service combined with outstanding flavors made for a dream dinner. Yum! Go now. I might set you there... More

We travel to Ft. Lauderdale quite often and always try to eat at Johnny V at least once on every trip. Food and service is always excellent and well worth the money.

So glad we stopped! We were planning to eat elsewhere, but didn't feel like waiting an hour. Luckily, there was no long wait when we walked by John V's. Food was very well-prepared and served by friendly people who cared about your dining experience. Somewhat pricy, but also expected and worth it if you're interested in an evening of fine... More

Went here on a recommendation from another restaurant. The food is rather unexceptional, not bad but not up to the standard of some other restaurants in FL. A nice wine list and typical Italian menu offerings. Dessert was the high point of the meal.
