“Inconsistant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2013

I love 2Johns, but there have been times where it compared to Dickie Brennan's Steakhouse, and one time where its only marginally better than Outback. This was one of the high-end times. The softest, most flavorful steak I've had. The service is fantastic, the bar is exceptional, and the atmosphere is elegant but comfortable. Expect to easily pay $100 for 2 adults for dinner.

“Expect to pay top dollar excellent food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2013

Food was the best. It truly do get what you pay for. My buddy really freaked out when he saw the bill, I should have warned him that the prices reflect the quality. I think he really enjoyed the food but he didnt like paying the bill! (Which he expensed anyways)

“Don't Go for Brunch, Go For Dinner”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2013

We've always had great meals at 2 John's (and Leon's previously) and made reservations for Mothers' Day Brunch today, 1 pm seating, and walked out before dining due to the wait.

We've gone for Easter Brunch previously and loved it, when they allowed you to make reservations at any time. Today there were only two seatings, 11 and 1. We arrived at 12:55 for our 1 pm seating (most other folks were already waiting when we arrived). We were seated by 1:10 and waited in the buffet line until 1:30 and still weren't at the serving station. The food looked great, but for the price we weren't willing to wait in a 20 minute line every time we wanted to get a serving of food.

We'll go back for dinner, but not for brunch if they continue to have two mass seatings. I understand it is more efficient to get folks through the restaurant with two mass seatings, but it isn't as nice an experience. At this price point I'd like a nicer experience, if I want a long line we can go to a casino buffet.

“Great place with great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 9, 2013 via mobile

A real jewel. The food is outstanding, the waitstaff are excellent, and the facilities clean and nice. It is a perfect place for a business or romantic meal. The staff is very accommodating to your needs. The bar is lively with excellent live music. A nice twist is the owner makes the rounds to each table to ensure your satisfaction. The menu includes both seafood dishes and great steaks. Have never had a bad meal or bad service.
