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... read 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.

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.
