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.

Our first visit to Johnny V was very impressive. We sat on the front patio watching people walking by. Excellent service, great food and a god wine list. Size of meals was also more in our taste, meaning god size meal but not too much as in some places. Thanks Johnny.

Great food but their Maytag Blue Cheese salad is incredible. You can eat outside on the street for people watching or inside wherer it is quieter. Very nice atmosphere & food

This restaurant is clearly a hot night spot but we enjoy going for lunch. It is not too busy and it is really good. They make a great tomato soup, an awesome lobster salad (you have to ask for it) and the restaurant has really good service.

This was our first visit to Johnny V's - we will be back. We sat on the front patio - lots of fun people-watching on hopping Las Olas Boulevard. There are lots of shops and galleries on Las Olas open late, so it's a nice area for an after-dinner stroll to let your food settle. Service was excellent. Wine list... More

First, I must mention that Las Olas is one of my favorite " go to" spots in Ft. Lauderdale. It is a combination of chic, artsy and cosmopolitan all wrapped up in one! It was Valentine"s Day and we did not have a dinner reservation. We took a chance and went into Johnny V's. The restaurant was bustling with couples... More

Dropped in for light lunch with an elderly lady with special needs. Staff were excellent, took everything in their stride and did everything to make us welcome including going off menu for her lunch. Had a great meal and a lovely time! Thank you Johnny V

We went for dinner and had an outside table. The service was top notch and the food... It's definitely a must-go restaurant, it should be on the Michelin guide. We had mussels (almost a main course) and lobster trio (wow) as starters and suggestions of the day (Curry marinated tuna seared) and Mahi as main courses. Both were truly excellent.... More

Johnny V's is one of the restaurants that we bring out-of-town visitors. It is on Las Olas Blvd. away from the beach, but great for people watching. Call ahead for reservations so you get an outside table. It is worth the price as the food is excellent.
