Great seafood, a covered outdoor bar and dining area, all within spitting distance of the Capitol Dome and the Mall. Chef Ann Cashion does marvellous things wherever she goes; this is no exception.

Johnny's was near my hotel, and I chose it to meet some friends. Food was average, nice patio. Service was very good.

Dinner was $75 for 2, for 2 drinks, 2 salads and 2 appetizers. Food was OK, service was OK, very noisy ambiance, although if it were warm enough the outdoor patio could be very nice.

Ihad oysters on half shell which we're fresh and delicious but the rest of the meal was ok! Service was great! Good for a big group, not my first choice for a real nice meal.....

Due to the proximity to the Liaison I found myself there twice for dinner. Our waitresses Nicole and Michelle were great- even warmed up our bread. On the Saturday night there was live music playing. You can sit inside or outside (weather permitting). Food was great, Calamari - excellent.
