I absolutely enjoyed my Garden Burger!! It arrived open-faced and the grilled zucchini, roasted red pepper, goat cheese, basil pesto, and arugula with a vegetarian house made black bean patty on two fluffy buns. The burger arrived with one included side (from the choices of lemon roast potatoes, bistro rice, fresh cut fries, sweet potato fries, Bistro house salad, Caesar... More

We have been going to Johnny's for years and have never had a bad meal or waited too long for our food to arrive. The food is consistently good. The staff as well as Johnny are great people!

I believe they have increased their prices..chicken shawarma dinner was $20, however it was very good and a large portion. Best to reserve on weekends.

Food was okay. Nice patio. The milk for my coffee was rancid. It was the small single packs. I had to find the waitress to tell her. She brought me new coffee and she brought milk from a new bag of small milks. They were fine but the next milk she brought was rancid too. She couldn't understand it. On... More

My husband and I had not been to the Bistro in a while so last week decided to head into Markham. The Bistro was not so busy but as the young women serving us said the "dog days of summer" but this did not matter the food and service were terrific and we both said we should come down from... More

The food is excellent. Staff are local people, very friendly serving with a smile. Probably one of the best patios, private airy but no view. Lots of flowers and comfortable seating outside. An interesting menu that feels like "home cooking".

About two years ago my husband and I started to go to Johnny bistro almost every week. We took everyone we knew there. They loved it. So did we. Until we brought our 4 month old daughter and the chef started giving us dirty looks. As a mother it's a turn off to eat somewhere where they give you looks... More

We booked but on this particular night there was no need to. We enjoyed our food which was very tasty and the choice was good. Expected a little bit better on the service side which surprised us as I mentioned before it was not very busy. For a bistro we quite enjoyed our evening however we thought the pricing was... More

I have never written a review before; however, as this was such a terrible experience, I felt it had to be mentioned. I will start at the beginning. I have attended Johnny Bistro on one prior occasion with my daughter, as I had heard great things and always want to support a local business. The food and service was mediocre,... More

Been a loyal customer for many years. Went with my family and friends and their families for dinner on a Friday night and regretted it ever since. They gave us a warning that food may take an extra 15 min- no problem, he's worth it. But an hour and half passed by and only got bread and drinks?? Every time... More
