Met friends of my wife there (they recommended the place). We all had something different, and everybody loved what they had. Fresh fish was prepared perfectly. Ahi Tuna app was tasty, great selection of wine too.

Two friends and I went to Johnny V last week and had a wonderful evening. We started with martinis at the bar and we could not help but admire the decor. The design was modern, clean and comfortable. We then moved to a table and enjoyed a very fine meal. We each ordered different starters and main dishes and we... More

My husband and I were really excited to try this restaurant on our last visit to Ft. Lauderdale after reading reviews on several sites and checking out the menu on the restaurant's website. The restaurant is located in the heart of Las Olas and the decor is simple, but posh. To start, we shared the mozzarella and vegetable pie as... More

I have been there a few times and I have never been disappointed. It has a great atmosphere for dating or group of friends. Food has always been very good and meets/exceeds my expectations. Great place!

Ordered steak rare- at best it was medium. Truffle garlic potatoes flavorless and cold. Took 15 minutes to get $12 glass of wine-server said bar backed up. Nice atmosphere but mediocre food and very overpriced.

Johnny V is overlooking every step in this beautifult eatery located on Las Olas ave. in the heart of Ft. lauderdale. A must if you... More

Johnny V has a great tomato soup served with mini grilled cheese sandwiches. The Cesar salad is good and even better with optional fresh grilled salmon, chicken or shrimp. There are heartier offerings and delicious desserts. It's perfect for a special business lunch, birthday celebration or just upscale meeting! Tourists can linger and then shop all up and down Las...

Nice place, good food. We went yesterday 10 people for dinner, a big group. The service was good, and we like the food. We will come back when we have a chance.
