    Brought a bunch of first-timers in for a late dinner and Johnny's never disappoints! The portions we got were quite larger than everyone was expecting, but I do appreciate that about Johnny's, as it makes for good sharing of plates.

    Delightful surprise. Playing-up the “speakeasy” theme is new and fun. The staff was courteous and amazingly fast (went on Friday at 6:30). Delicious food, just wish I’d had more time to browse the bar (an excellent reason to return in itself). I will definitely be back.

    This place has real potential. The music from a live band was good, not too loud. The service was friendly, but given that the place wasn’t full by any stretch, not attentive. Food was the most disappointing. Rib appetizer, tasty but fatty. Large salad was uninspiring.

    Great service and cocktails…. Our lamb chops came out pretty inedible 😞 too thick, bad quality and rare. We sent them back, our waitress removed from bill and comped us dessert. Will go back, she made it worthwhile

    Experience was fantastic. Food was wonderful. Service excellent. A little on the loud side once the room was filled, but some sound deadening tucked into the ceiling would probably help with that, and not be too detrimental on the aesthetics. Was very pleased to see low and no alcohol choices available on the drink menu.

    I enjoyed the food and the ambience. It was extremely loud but that’s because it had a very exciting vibe. We were celebrating my birthday so they brought me a beautiful crème brûlée with a sparkler in the middle! Loved it.

    Johnny's continues to be one of our go-to spots in Metro Detroit for craft cocktails and great food. The mood of this speakeasy is one of its greatest attractions. The staff is always friendly and fun to interact with. I highly recommend Johnny's to anyone looking for a cool, unique night out with their significant other or a group of friends. You will not be disappointed.

    We were expecting more of a speakeasy experience with more questions “to determine entry,” and 1920’s decor. It was just another bar. It took 20 minutes to get each drink ordered. Our food was cold. They forgot to put salad dressing on the salad. We hoped that this was just an off night.

    Food was really good. Our appetizers came out quick but seemed to be a little cold as if they were sitting. But still very tasty. Drinks were yummy. Seating was a little too close for my liking. We were close enough to be able to hear the conversations of the people seated to the right and left of us. Great overall!

    Johnny’s never disappoints! My favorite is sitting at the bar, because their specialty cocktails are fun to drink and I also like watching the process of them being made. I have enjoyed everything I’ve ordered to eat, but I prefer to dine upstairs at Alchemi and then heading downstairs. The bartenders will keep your waters full, and the ambiance has a true speakeasy feel. I have been a repeat here many times for a reason!

    Anniversary celebrations. Loved the cloak and dagger - it is well done without being cheesy. Our food was amazing and it was delightful to have a dessert brought to the table with sparklers to make it special. Our waiter was odd. I told him I had a sugar probleM but he insisted on bringing me a cocktail that caused my blood sugar to spike! Then once we were done with dinner and wanted to get home he pretty much forgot about us! He meant well with the cocktail but a little training would go far!
