We decided to give John's a try as it was just down the street from our hotel and had been around for over a 100 years (they must be doing something right). We were seated upstairs, which had a more relaxed vibe than the busy downstairs. There was a live jazz player which added to the ambiance. This is a cool place steeped in history. There are pictures of various politicians and celebrities on the wall, which I was told all of whom have visited John's over the years. I had the seafood pasta. It was a generous portion and tasty, but didn't blow me away. The service was great.
