This restaurant is quite unassuming physically. It does not fit the mold of the typical hip Miami eatery. It has both an indoor and outdoor component typical of South Florida.

We had a wonderful lunch upon our arrival on Las Olas Blvd. I had fish taco wrap that was a hearty serving of snapper. My husband had the burger with fries. We had ordered the Truffle Fries for an app , no words to describe how good they were and how fast they went! Caprese chicken sandwich was a hit.... More

I was here with my family and everyone enjoyed the food and service very much. All our dishes were excellent. They even did a special dish for my grandkids and they loved it. Service was fast and very good. I believe the server's name was Samantha

My wife and I had a really bad experience last night at this restaurant. When we arrived, they did not have our reservation and seemed concerned as to whether they could seat us in the nearly empty restaurant. The service was very slow, and the food was mediocre at best. The caesar salad was somewhat tasty but not a caesar... More

Los Olas Blvd teems with smart shops and delicious restaurants. On a mild January evening a friend escaping the Mid-Atlantic blizzard spotted the perfect table - upfront overlooking the Boulevard - and treated my husband and me to dinner at Johny V's. From the start the evening was sublime. Our server, Greg, both intelligent and intuitive, seemed to know just... More

I had grilled mahi-mahi with lobster stuffing and veggies. The fish was perfectly grilled and moist. My cousin had the blackened snapper and commented that it was very good. The wine list included a good selection of cabernets (Yes, we had red with fish). The service was impeccable and the patio dining was delightful and classy with tables covered in... More

A bit on the pricey side, especially the wine list which has few moderately priced choices, but excellent food, excellent service. Each dish delightfully presented and tasty. We would go there again.

The food was innovative, fresh and outstanding. I had the mahi mahi and it the best I ever had. The service and atmosphere were also excellent. We had a wonderful white burgundy that was reasonable and perfect. The pre-appetizers were very interesting and an indication of the excellent food to come.

First... If it's nice... Sit outside. So perfect. Great place to hand out and enjoy Las Olas for lunch. We sat right on the outside edge of the sidewalk, perfect for people watching and enjoy the Florida style. Food was great. Everyone was happy and full. The Truffle Fries are a great starter. Plenty of 4 people. As for food:... More
