One of my favorite stops for dinner is Johnny's bar on Fulton. old school atmosphere with a cool vibe. Quaint small restaurant with very nice service and a staff that has been there for years. The specials are to die for as I always order the pepper and sausage appetizer. A bit of a bite but so so good. Veal... More

We had a pretty good meal at Johnnys. Stuffed pepper appetizer was inconsistently too hot for some and mild for others. Other than that the black bass and cod were superb and the veal was beyond good. The filet of beef was flavorful but tough. Darn it. Previous dinners were great. This one was great for some but should have... More

Found this place in a magazine in our hotel room. Friends from Cleveland picked us up and they had never heard of Johnny's and weren't familiar with the neighborhood. It doesn't look like much from the outside but I knew I was going to enjoy it when we walked in. I was somewhat familiar with the menu as it was... More

The sous chef was having a bad day and they had to call in reserves so our meal took 2 1/2 hours. They were very apologetic and gave us free wine which I thought was very nice. I do not think the food is as good as I remember. It was good but not outstanding. I had the stuffed peppers... More

This place is timeless. The servers have been there forever, the owner as well, and the food has ALL the veal, steak, pasta, and is ALWAYS amazing. There's daily specials, but there's the timeless classics that make you NEEDING to come back again and again. Save room for the Bananas Foster.
