Depends on what you get

Duck meatball appetizers are average. Lamb rib appetizers are average- need more flavor. Scallops that my brother had were amazing. Sea bass is very good. BBQ shrimp was way too spicy that I couldn't enjoy the shrimp at all.

The scallop dinner was phenomenal. My sister had the BBQ and wasn't impressed and was definitely the worst dish out of the family. Highly recommend the scallops if you come here.

Sat at the bar for happy hour. I think M - F, 5-7 pm. Great cocktails and appetizers at around $7 per each. The mushroom pancake app was amazing! and this is coming from someone who normally despises mushrooms. Also, we were served by Coulton who made the experience pleasant and fun and brought out two tasting dishes on behalf... More

Food is amazing and innovating. Service is top notch! Plan on spending some time at the bar first and enjoy one of the hand crafted cocktails or delicious wine from the wine list. Be nice and ask for a table outdoors! :)

I went back to this restaurant due to a great experience I had in July of 2014. This time I took my husband and daughter who had not been before. I wanted them to enjoy great food and service. As I expected they were not disappointed. My husband said it was the best food he had in Ft. Lauderdale and... More

My husband and I made reservations for dinner for our anniversary. We were staying in the hotel across the street which made it very convenient. Were seated right away. They hand you a virtual library when you are seated at your table: a wine menu, cocktails menu, dinner menu and a cheese menu! If we had been more hungry we... More

We live nearby and this is one of our favorite restaurants. I always get the same thing-diver scallops over short ribs. That, along with a maytag blue salad, shared, is a great meal. My only complaint is that the service is too, too rushed! It's nice that the food arrives hot but let us eat it! One example is thar... More

All elements of a great dining experience were here on our visit - service (Michael was informative and friendly), decor (pleasant and inviting), atmosphere (outdoor-sidewalk-people-watching at it's finest), and lastly the quality of our meal. I will not reiterate what others have said about the meal - but it was superb.

We have been going to Johnny V's since it opened. I love the atmosphere here ....I have never had a bad meal either! I've always considered Johnny V's as one of my top 5 restaurants in Ft. Lauderdale and I get around quite a bit. The food is consistent, creative, flavorful and delicious. I love sitting at the bar and... More
