Personable owner, great service, clean upscale atmosphere. By far the best food at its level in the State. Food is always consistent, pricy well worth every cent!

This is an exceelent choice for a busniness lunch or dinner. The service is friendly yet very professional; the food is consistently well prepared; and the atmosphere is very comfortable, sort of an old club feel. There are a lot, a lot, of local businessmen and women who are regulars here. Very important it is not a chain or corporately owned; the owners are right there int he restaurant. Caution - this level of service and food comes with a pretty high price tag. You will leave some money here, but you will get a good meal.

For elegant ambience and superb dining Johnny's Downtown has no equal. I have tried all of Cleveland's great restaurants-and we are blessed with so many from Tremont to the eastern & western suburbs but my favorite goto place for over ten years has been Johnnys. Have a drink at thr bar-the bartenders pour with a heavy hand. Be sure to try the veal stuffed pepper appetizer and consider the long-boned veal chop entree. Peruse the extensive wine list. Don't be in a hurry! The servers are real pros-the chefs prepare your food to order-give them time to do it right.

We were greeted warmly when we arrived, but it was quite some time before our server came to the table. He did not introduce himself and continued most of the evening to be rather cool. There was a long period of time between courses (almost an hour from when we arrived and when we received our appetizer), although we were happy to be visiting with friends. The food was wonderful, although we felt it was pricey. I loved the house salad and the raw bar selection of shrimp cocktail was very generous and delicious. We noticed that the white wine serving was much less than the reds, although the prices were comparable. We may give it another try (with another server) in the future.
