We've all been to those places where the food and service are good but they are forgettable. Not Johnny V's, every dish has always been as delicious as they are beautiful. The Duck, duck, duck was outstanding, I didn't even like Foie Gras before going to Johnny V's. The service was polite, funny, and attentive. He gave recommendations at every... More

I enjoyed one of my all time favourite steaks; done exactly the way I love it. We went for happy hour and stayed for dinner. They have a good happy hour (food and drinks). They also have a great cheese menu

The four us had a lazy lunch on a Sunday afternoon. We sat outside under the extended roof. Fans on the ceiling kept us cool on a hot June day. We talked and heard the Jazz sounds from across the street. The service was wonderful and the food better.

Our waiter starter out great, the apps and salads were amazing but 1/2 hour after salad plates cleared no checking back or explanation for delay of entrees. Complained to manager and waiter, very little concern or response.

Our first time in Ft Lauderdale and this was our first stop. By accident really just walking down the Boulevard and picked it randomly and It was delicious. Sunday brunch menu is different than the online menu. I'd go back anytime we are on Ft Lauderdale.

The reviews on Johnny V were very good but I was not all that impressed. The service was outstanding, that I can give them. The amount of food provided in the appetizers are enough for two people to share but not for a larger group. For the price, the appetizers should offer more food. The calamari with cornmeal crust were... More

My husband and I selected this restaurant for lunch mainly because the others along Las Olas were crowded and loud. The turkey wrap I had was fantastic. My husband asked to substitute the snapper (fish sandwich of the day) in his salad. The salad was good, but the snapper overcooked, and a bit "fishy" smelling. That being said, I would... More
