Went here with two friends. We did not have a reservation but were promptly seated in an adjoining dining room. While it was just us, everything was fine but the room filled quickly and became almost too loud to hear the others at the table. My friend, who had been there before, ordered peppered duck breast which wasn't even on... More

Was at Johnny's on a weeknight. Pretty empty. Server was good. Apps came out quickly. Dinner a little slow, and when it did come it was warm at best. Tasted good, but little disappointed. Had been years since I was last there. Was much better in the past.

We had an amazing dinner here with our family! We were celebrating a few things and had not been back to this location in a while and I forgot how good the food and service is. First, a bit off the beaten path, free valet parking and a huge lot in a church parking lot across the street. The owner... More

Growing up in Cleveland I had heard about Johnny's Bar, but the name... Finally now living in southwestern Ohio tried this legendary restaurant. Les Roberts has used in many of his mysteries. Great salad, terrific [pepper steak, my wifev loved her salmon, chocolate mousse was right on classic. Despite an early reservation, restaurant was packed at 6 PM. Priced appropriately... More

A group of my friends and I try to get to Johnny's Bar on Fulton once a week for lunch. Debbie the bartender and Tammy our waitress make the whole experience excellent. They serve the best veal piccata in town!

What a meal!! From the street it doesn't look like much, but the moment you arrive at the table it is something very special. A delightful man arrives to tell you the specials of the day and from there you make a choice. Food relish. Nice selection of wine. Enjoy!! A small restaurant, intimate dining.

This place is a gem. I have visited on several occasions over the past couple years and am always delighted with the service, ambiance and especially the food. They have a wonderful menu and the appetizers and dinners are delicious. I highly recommend the stuffed banana peppers and the veal chop.

Johnny's Bar is a place worthy of a visit for a special occasion. Prices are on the higher end for fine dining, however the food is delicious and the portions are huge, so you might just have leftovers for lunch the next day. Consider splitting the caesar salad with your date. Even when split, you will both have plenty, plus... More
