Johny V's offers great food, try several appetizers and savour all it has to offer, The tapas platter was excellent and filling accompanied with a glass of wine, sit outside and people watch. It's located on Las Olas, a great street with lots to offer. The service was great.

The food was very good! Location is excellent on Las Olas Blvd. Our experience was mixed: great food but slow service. We were practically the only guests at 1:30 pm. for lunch, but a salad with grilled chicken and a club sandwich took a long time. It was worth the wait-Wummy!

Had Sunday evening dinner at Johnny V's with friends. Great food and big portions. I always say I'm going to have a cheese course from their extensive cheese menu, but I fill up too fast on the other courses. The duck meatball appetizer is excellent!

Good happy hour, great staff, fun apps and they also do the right thing by giving staff off for holidays. I'll be back soon since they do this.

What a wonderful surprise to reserve at a "known" restaurant, in a "hot" area and actually find a warm greeting, great service, superb food and high quality. Don't know Ft Lauderdale so found this restaurant on tripadvisor with great reviews. Don't always believe reviews, but it seemed like a good bet. Reserved online and asked for a "window-side table" (indoors;... More

The food was fantastic along with the service. Very nice, quite restaurant. There were 11 in our party and they accommodated us very well. It is a little pricey. The location is great too for shopping or night life.

We went to Johnny V on the recommendation of the concierge at the Ritz Carlton, and thank goodness we listened to him! This place was fantastic. The restaurant was cool and had a good atmosphere, and the service was excellent, but the FOOD is truly the star at this restaurant. It doesn't need gimmicks; the food speaks for itself! Cheese...

Want something different? Try Johnny V's on Las Olas! You know you are about to experience something out of the ordinary when you are seated with a wine/cocktail/beer list, a dinner menu AND a cheese menu! And BY ALL MEANS, try some of the cheeses- it is a visual experience that matches the taste experience! (And read the cheese menu... More

My husband and I are pretty serious foodies and love to try new places. On a recent week-long trip to Lauderdale, we decided to try this place on our first night in town. It turned out to be the best meal of the trip. It was a Tuesday night, so the place was pretty quiet, with the exception of a... More

Had a very classy lunch here with friends. Food was delicious, great wine list and excellent service. Really like the location for people watching on the patio when the weather is cool enough to sit outside. We will be back whenever we are in town.
