This was a great place. Bavarian fusion on the menu. We shared apps and a few mains between the four of us. Schnitzel was delicious so was the surf and turf. Watermelon martinis we full of fresh melon and to die for. Will go back again. They do a $12 schnitzel dinner if you sit at the bar.

I ordered the pork chop with a pretzel crust and my husband had duck curry with rice. Both dishes were absolutely fantastic! The house cabernet was also excellent. We had a dessert sampler which we shared that had 3 chocolate items. Delicious. since we are early diners, we had the place to ourselves for a bit. I like the quiet.

warm, inviting and the staff is terrific. They are patient and explain anything that is not clear. The selections are terrific and the selections of wine (by the glass for us) was great. You have to try Johannes.

In early July Johannes announced their summer menu highlighted by their Bar Menu Specials beginning with our favorite, Weiner Schmitzle. The Bar Menu serves a smaller portion of one of their dining room entrées for only $12. It is a perfect size for Donna and I and is complimented with cucumber salad, berry compote and fresh lemon. Topped off with... More

It was Brussel sprout leaves with lemon, olive oil, shaved pecorino cheese... More

Wow, I would have never thought that I could have German food in Palm Springs. It's fabulous!. The prix set dinner option was what we chose and it was worth it. The escargot, schnitzel and dessert couldn't have been better. Busy place and I could absolutely see why.

When was the last time you ate schnitzel at a restaurant? It is like a flash from the past with continental cuisine meeting American restaurants you grew up with. This is very popular and on the edge of Arenas Street, so it is hard to park and there is always a raucous crowd outside on weekends. The hostess is gracious... More

We decided to try Johannes for restaurant week. My husband and I agree that this was one of the best meals we have ever had anywhere on this planet! From the amazing Sake to Me martini on every thing was exquisite, every bite was a layer of beautiful flavors. And the service was spectacular! If this restaurant were in L.A.... More
