So ,it's time for a birthday dinner,where to go ?If you are looking for a place where you can carry on a conversation,this is not it.Hard surfaces,hard chairs and maybe not enough staff.The menu is adequate,and the meals good.But,there are many places in Madison that fit this description at a lesser coast.

Dear Redmen - So sorry Johnny's was a bit loud for you. We want to have the music just loud enough to create a vibe. We want to have a bit of energy in the restaurant. More

The only reason I won't say it's the best dinner spot in the area is because I haven't tried every restaurant. My wife and I went here for a date and it was perfection. The steaks, appetizers (crab cake, salad, bread), desert (tirimasu) and drinks. We couldn't have asked for a better server either (Jill). She was very attentive, provided... More

We had a large group in town for an overnight business trip. Johnny's is in a great location, and being near our lodging made it idael. We were there on a Wednesday night, so it wasn't particularly crowded, but the service was great. Bartender was spot on, and once seated our waitress kept up with our large crowd very well.... More

we have had good meals and then we have bad meals and experiences at Johnny's and there have been more bad experiences (food and wait staff) recently. Seems that a year ago it was much better all around.

Pork porterhouse was divine! Portions are large so a friend and I shared and there was plenty for two. Skillet potatoes and house salad were skillfully done. I look forward to eating here. Sometime I need to just get an appetizer so I can try the dessert.

I enjoyed a fabulous cosmopolitan before dinner. I ordered the cedar planked salmon which is prepared with an orange glaze and served with family style house salad and warm focaccia bread. The salad consisted of fresh greens and a delicious house dressing.
