    The steaks my husband and I had were a good value. They were tasty (I had the petite filet mignon and he had the sirloin) and were generous portions. You also get a side of your choice and a salad. I had a nice sauce on my filet, my husband thought his sirloin could use a sauce but it didn’t come with one. Other than that everything was very good. We will go back.

    Usually excellent, this go around steak and pasta was dry. Very unfortunate. Service was good not his fault the food wasn’t up to usual standard. We will still give another try hopefully it was just a bad night.

    Well, I am all about second and third chances, however the chief must be a 30 year smoker who can’t taste salt anymore. EVERYTHING is so salty. It has been that way for the last 4 or 5 times I’ve gone. I don’t like salt, but my wife does. If she says it’s salty, then I know it’s not just me. Loved the restaurant when it first opened. Can’t eat there anymore.

    Food was excellent. A little miffed at our waitress. She heard it was my birthday and said I could get a dessert with a candle. Turns out the dessert was $12.00 and the candle complimentary.

    Was so looking forward to dinner at Johnny's after reading the menu online. However, 3 out of 4 of us were disappointed with our meals. One steak was completely overcooked, one came with sauce (did not disclose that on the menu) that was so salty it ruined the beautiful filet mignon that I ordered. The "special" lobster pasta was inedible with the sauce being so sweet (why sweet???). Would love to try it again as maybe it was just an off night and would probably just stick to the regular menu (minus the sauce) and not any of the specials. The private rooms looked amazing and the drink menu was fabulous. Hope next time we have a better experience.

    This places prices make it seem like a fancier place. That is not the case. This is a standard steakhouse nothing special. Pasta was priced like it was homemade, but when eating it tasted like it was frozen at some point.

    Everything was great except the steaks were more medium rare than medium well. We chose not to send them back because everything else was wonderful. We were celebrating a special date and chose not to let this spoil our fun evening.

    I'm willing to give it a second chance, but it could have been better. The steaks weren't done properly and were under-seasoned. Normally I would have said something, but the place was understaffed, and they were working their tails off. It just didn't seem fair to do that to them. The restaurant atmosphere was great. It's a place where you can dress up, or come in everyday wear. Elegant without being pretentious. The appetizers were great, the salads were fantastic, bread was warm. I was expecting to be wowed with the steaks, which just didn't happen.

    Definitely a great spot for a bite to eat in Thornton. Prime Rib was good, filet mignon was good. Lobster mac was so-so. More affordable than other spots (Hideaway for example), but not quite as fancy.

    First time dining here for my husbands birthday with the family. My daughters steak (ordered medium) came rare, and when we asked to have it cooked properly it came back well done and took a long time to arrive. My husband ordered the “Diane” steak, and rated it unflavorful and a bad cut of meat. He did not eat it and helped me with mine instead. My steak came cooked properly (medium) and was flavorful. My ‘heart of italy’ combo had two pasta items that were covered in thick cheese and it was too much/greasy. The stuffed mushroom appetizer was also coated in about 1/2” of cheese, and very greasy. The service & ambiance were good. Given the cost of the food, and that there was issue with the steaks, we prolly won’t visit again.

    No ice bucket to keep our prosecco chilled. Waitress did not know how to open the bottle. I had to show her. Needed to ask many times for items like butter for bread, sour cream for baked potato. Waitress was not very experienced.
