Service was excellent. For the average dish price of $33, the food was also average. Nothing really stood out that was unique. The menu had great options of seafood and meat, but the food I felt was overloaded with too much sauces and seasoning where there was flavor disparity Great bar and ambiance though.

This fabulous spot on Las Olas has a separate cheese menu that is a perfect way to start (or end) the meal. Selecting 3 or more is served with delicious crustini's, marinated grapes and olives and a spread that is absolutely delicious. Such a unique appetizer that everyone can enjoy. The wait staff is knowledgeable to help with the extensive... More

We made reservations to eat here and arrived a little early. Not an issue, we were seated right away. The drinks were yummy and the food was amazing, I loved the presentation! It was such a nice surprise to see this artfully displayed meal. Great location on Las Olas, walk up and down the street and work off your meal.

We reserved in advance although arriving early. Good seating, good welcome, good menu, great food preparation. Service started out excellent, but ended poorly. Too bad. Service so slow we skipped desert.

We are coming each year in this restaurant with the same equal pleasure BUT THIS TIME.... - Quality of food: starter perfect ( but not so difficult to cook I think) , the entree....fish: good in summary ( presentation, global flavour) but really too overcooked( here is normally the real talent of a chef). For my friend it was the... More

Amazing service and they know the menu, and even what wines to recommend without hesitation they were a perfect match! It was like dining at a fine New York eatery than sitting outside on a perfect Florida night! We had a selection of starters and what I especially like is that they are not huge portions yet substantial enough. Try... More

With a plethora of restaurants from which to choose, I am so glad that I decided to dine at Johnny V! Both my husband and I loved it, saying that's it's definitely one of the top five restaurant meals we've ever had. For our appetizer, we ordered the "Bacon, Eggs and Toast", which was crostini served with fried pork belly... More

We were a little worried about finding a good meal on such a busy night, but our fears were unfounded. The menu was a little bit limited but everyone found a delicious meal. The restaurant was bustling but we were not rushed and had plenty of time to enjoy. Good food, but a little expensive, a special occasion place.

I've been here twice and the food has been awesome both times. We usually just get a bunch of appetizers so I cant speak for the entrees but the mushroom pancakes are absolutely awesome. The duck meatballs are also a favorite of mine. Eating here outside with las olas boulevard in front of you is a great way to spend... More
