    Repeat customer. Always enjoy Johnny's when we'd like a chill place to go with great drinks. We had other dinner plans prior, but appreciate that dessert runs until close.

    Concept is ultra cool. Loved getting a secret password texted to me day of for entrance. The unmarked alley entrance was perfect. (see pic) We rang the bell and a gentleman opened the door. After stating the password, he guided us down the delivery door steps to the bar/dining area. Alrhough we were about 20 mins early for our reservation, we were escorted immediatly to our 2-top along the edge which was set and waiting for us (nice!) For me, an important element that was missing to set the ambiance was live jazz! That would have made this place killer. The place was energetic and loud otherwise - I think there was music over the speakers - not sure what type bc it was muffled by conversations. We'd already had dinner and came for drinks and dessert. So food review will be limited. I am GF and luckily the peanut chocolate truffles were 💯 percent GF. Because of the special occasion they brought my husband the cherry 🍒 creme brule on the house (nice touch! tysm!) We ordered a couple diff drinks with smoke shows. ++The Holland Fog ginger kambucha mule was amazing. Cool smokey presentation and DELICIOUS. * Note: The Johnny Appleseed cocktail in a flower pot has been renamed the Final Rose. They were out of roses that night (NP) so subbed with a diff flower. But the oreo "dirt" was just broken into pieces and didn't look at all like dirt. (More like mulch lol) An easy fix. If we return, next time we will sit at the bar since I love to see the drinks being made.

    We attended the Pirates of the Caribbean themed Dinner party, it was a great time and we won 1st place for Best dressed Pirates. There was a good crowd and everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves. The service was great and the food was very delicious.

    We waited an hour for our reservation which they got us a table to sit at upstairs but then no one came around to us upstairs. we had to go to the bar and ask the host upstairs if we still had a reservation downstairs. once downstairs the server was very nice and the food was good but its very tight and pretty loud with how many people are in there.

    The table for two was teeny and the space between the tables was nonexistent, so it was no surprise the server knocked my entire water glass onto my lap. She was very apologetic but I was on a date and my outfit was soaked. Manager never came over to see about the matter or anything. But the food was EXCELLENT!

    I was looking for something out of the ordinary to celebrate my sisters birthday and decided on Johnnies. Loved the idea. You come in through the back door, down a sketchy stairway into a beautiful bar and dining room. You really do step back in time when dining was an experience and service was competitive. The menu is limited but all the dishes were outstanding and more then enough to satisfy even large appetites. The drinks are pricey but hand crafted and well worth the price. They made my sister feel special with creme brullee and a shooting firework candle. Definitely will return.

    The food was absolutely delicious. We ordered the smothered burnt ends, lamb ragu, salmon, and a couple drinks, and ended the night with a creme brulee. The meats were so tender that it melted in your mouth! The drinks were great as well and you just can’t go wrong with a creme brulee. The waitress came in to check on us often and was amazing to us. We went on a Thursday night so it was nice and quiet and perfect for a date night!

    We had a wonderful time at Johnny’s - the food was great, live entertainment was just right and great ambiance. It was a Sunday evening but was very busy - the waitstaff seemed a little overwhelmed but were very pleasant. Cocktails are pricey but the food menu is pretty reasonable. Will definitely visit again.

    Some of the food was really good, some of it was not great and seemed kind of throw together (like the charcuterie board). The idea of the speakeasy environment was really cool and it was nicely designed. The service was horrible though.

    Johnny's Speakeasy speaks for itself if you can find it. Loved the password it was a great touch and definitely hidden away from entrance making for a remarkable experience. The food and drinks were amazing and the team even brought out a firework desert for our anniversary which was a great and unexpected treat!

    My wife and I just moved from Detroit to Denver and Johnny's was our last night out beforehand. We couldn't think of a better place to close out our chapter in Detroit. The food is wonderful, the atmosphere is always vibrant, and the service is top notch. We will absolutely be returning to Johnny's during our next visit to Michigan.
