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.

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
