After quite a hunt for something 'open' for lunch on Christmas Day, we happened upon Johnny V's venue unexpectedly. The outdoor seating was jammed, but there was room inside.
Considering the crowds, we were greeted quite pleasantly and allowed to choose a table, also,
which is unusual in many place.
The tables are well spaced and the interior is inviting. It's possible that adequate staff wasn't planned for the crowds that filtered in, as service was delayed a while. The menu is varied, with sufficient choices to please most people.
Drinks from the bar were decent value, also.
The back part of this restaurant is more inviting; quieter, with good linens and lovely ambiance, though appears to be opened only for dinner . . .
The restroom was clean and spacious enough to accommodate seniors, if necessary, though parking is a challenge.
Was most surprised that the City of Ft. Lauderdale doesn't comp holidays, though; not even Christmas ~~!!
That said, however, we would definitely enjoy returning to try Johnny V's again for lunch,
and perhaps a dinner in that most inviting location at the back!
