I am not sure why I like this place. Sure the food is good and the ambiance is good, but there are so many places in Palm Springs to eat. But I still come back here to sit at one of the two "bar tables" in the front window, have a glass of wine (or two) with dinner and enjoy... More

The food is good but rather heavy. There are classic Austrian dishes and some local choices. I would stick with the specials or schnitzel in winter.

Rated one of the best restaurants in Palm Springs. It is very nice and has great food. Fantastic service and ambience. The apple strudel was yummy. I would have given this restaurant 5 stars but I am a coffee snob and feel that a restaurant of this caliber should serve a quality cup of coffee or French press if you... More

Was there last night. Service was terrible. Management is arrogant. Their policy is they will not provide menus until AFTER they serve your first round of drinks. So you must wait for server to show up to ask for drinks, then you have to wait for the drinks, and then finally they will give you menus. And if you get... More

In my opinion, this is the best restaurant in Palm Springs. They make a Brussels sprout salad that is never on the printed menu but always on the board of today's specials that is to die for! The sprouts are chopped and raw, mixed with cheese and walnuts in a lemony dressing -- absolutely delicious. The rest of the menu... More

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
