We spent Thanksgiving here and had a great meal. Everything tasted home-made, the bread, sauces, desserts etc. It isn't stuffy or too fancy, yet it's sofisiticated enough to have nice glassware, good wine selections and friendly service. We would definitely go back.

Two of us had an excellent dinner at Johannes. We both ordered one of their signature schnitzel dishes. Besides being delicious, there was enough for dinner at home the following evening as well. We chose a very nice unfamiliar wine from their extensive list, went...More

There were four of us for dinner and we had a wonderful time. Two of us had the Jager Schnitzel (wild mushroom, bacon, red wine sauce)-YUM! The other two had pork daily special and the ahi dinner. They both loved their dinners. Great martini list....More
