Great food on Las Olas Blvd

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... read 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.

We visited Johnny V after visiting the Stranahan house. The street was filled with places to decide on and were very packed. I just wanted a place that would provide some healthy choices. I ordered the turkey wrap and it was good. Everything was good, food, server. Overall a nice place to go while you are shopping on Las Olas.

Disappointing visit to Johnny V's. Chicken was tough and tasteless with next to no accompaniments. Expensive option so did expect more.

Awesome bar with great cocktails! Food presentation is what you would expect for an upscale restaurant right on Las Olas. If you sit outside, the people watching is excellent. With cocktails and appetizers, be prepared to spend $100 per person.

I have been coming to this restaurant for at least 12 years. It has been the host to many special events but I was sadly dismayed by the decline in food quality and service. Server was nice by never told us there were specials, we overheard them from the table next to us, after we ordered. They never brought us... More

We visit the area usually once a year. About 5 years ago we enjoyed a wonderful meal here. The last few years, we have visited other restaurants with mixed results, so I booked us back here and we were not disappointed. The food was excellent. My scallop and short rib dinner was a big wow. The service was great. It... More

This was our second visit to Johnny V - both times I was so impressed with everything. Food is excellent - I had the T-bone special which was cooked perfectly. Wine list is super - I asked our waiter to suggest a delicious red to go with my steak and her suggestion was superb. The menu is upscale, unfussy and... More
