Our server Jamie was excellent. She gave great recommendations for drinks and entrees. She made us feel very welcome. Two of our entrees had specific requests which were served as ordered. We all four enjoyed our experience from drinks, bread, salad, entrees to desserts. The food was excellent and we all took part of our dinners home to be sure we enjoyed desserts.
We dined on a Monday night and the restaurant was busy not fully packed. It seemed like the wait between drinks, entrees and desserts was longer than we have experienced in the past. We were not in a rush but waits were excessive.
Overall we had a great experience at Johnny's and were happy to be there with our granddaughter and new husband who truly loved a real authentic quality Italian dinner experience.
Lined it will go again
Great choice before Proctors Theater. Top notch food and service while keeping a comfortable atmosphere. Can not wait to visit again.
Great meal with great service! Very nice restaurant with consistently good food.

Definitely will go back many more times and will be bringing and telling my friends about it. Food was amazing, service was amazing and everyone was friendly and made sure we had what we needed
We were celebrating Valentines Day. We ordered from the special menu for the holiday and it was very good. We had to take part of our dinner and the desserts home. We will definitely go back again.
It was fabulous. Everything was great.
The food was amazing!
Best Chicken piccata ever!Prortions are huge but worth it!
Excellent food and excellent service—what more could you ask for. Highly recommend.
We had our holiday dinner at Johnny’s and the food and service was amazing. Two of us ordered the seafood special, 10 ounce lobster with scallops, shrimp, and mussels over pasta. I highly recommend this dish, if available.
Supercalifragilistic expealidocious (sp?)...in other words, everything was wonderful!
Excellant service and meal . Our open table reservation put us at a high table in the bar . We were there on a birthday and before a show... i asked to be seated at a table , the hostess was not real receptive at first , then after pleading with her , she gave up a table that was reserved for a 4;45 reservation , it was now 5;30 !! Our waitress was nice , not overly helpful . Our meal was extremely fast ! It was very good and our water was kept filled at all times . Birthday cake was given as we were about to leave .
I've been to Johnny's a few times so I knew what to expect. This is why I chose to invite some business associates when they came to town. Everyone walked away impressed.
Fantastic food and ambiance. Always a wonderful meal with great service at Johnny’s!
As usual the food was delicious. I usually have dinner before attending proctors show. We love Dillon who is now the manager. Well deserved but miss his impeccable service. This was the 1st time ever that I was unhappy with our server. I will continue to patronize Johnnys as I have never been disappointed with the food.
Excellent service and food was excellent, well worth the price. Definitely on my go to list
The food was delicious and the service was excellent! We’ll definitely be back!
Good Italian fare went on a Friday night and bar area was very noisy. Fortunate our table was in the back which muffled the noise somewhat. Prices are reasonable and portions were enough to take some home.
Veal Parmegiana and lasagna was awesome, as was the shrimp oreganato as our appetizer. Pasta sides were homemade and delicious! Will be back again soon!
Excellent Italian food, great service & ambiance.
We got a recommendation from a friend to try Johnny's before a show right across the street at Proctor's. It was so convenient and a great dining experience. Service and food quality were excellent.
Excellent food and great location! On show nights, it can get a little hectic; but the convenience far outweighs the slight dip in service.
Relaxed, family style atmosphere with delicious food. Homemade pasta is wonderful. Service is excellent. The military discount was a welcome surprise when they found out that our son is a Marine and my husband is retired Air force.
Excellent restaurant, only complaint it’s so popular you must book your reservations weeks in advance for an early dinner before 7PM.
This is usually my favorite restaurant in the Schenectady area. First I made a reservation 2 weeks in advance and asked for a ground table for my mother and they gave up a high top table upon arriving. They moved us to the worse seat in the house across from the kitchen doors. We ordered drinks and appetizers. We didnt consider our app to have taken long but to them it did and we were informed it was free. We ordered our food and I asked for no mushrooms. We kept being told our food was coming right up. Folks who sat down after us but we ordered before were getting there food. There is a new manager there. I like the other one better but he said they were 2 tickets behind. Which was a lie. So I called him out and just said listen if something was messed up please bring out what is ready things happen. I then said people who sat down after us are getting their food. He then brought it out and my dish which I clearly ask for no mushrooms had mushrooms. At this point my niece filled up on bread and soda and non of us were hungry waiting over a hour for our food. Not sure whats going on at Johnny's but I have never had this experience.
we went to dinner with two little girls and our dinning experience was perfect staff was very friendly
and helpful I cant wait to go back.
We had a 4:45 reservation and the hostess was very accommodating to us. We specifically reserved a regular table not a high top but were given a high top anyway. They said something about open table reservations always get them. When we questioned it she didn’t argue and they set up a new table for us in a side room which was very pleasant. Service and food was wonderful! Great pre show dinner! If the hostess had not accommodated us so pleasantly we would not have been happy.
The girl at the front greeting and checking folks in was overworked. No way she should be answering 2 nonstop ringing phones and checking folks in. Overheard her tell another customer they open at 5pm but my reservation was for 4:45pm. Why do they take reservations prior to the time they open? Folks with the same reservation time were not seated in the order they checked in. I complained and was met with a curt “ok”. Check in was not an efficient process at all. When I was seated, I was seated at a high top in the bar where it was extremely noisy. When I made the reservation I specifically chose a table other than a high top so I’m wondering if it was pay back for my complaint. The high top was not large enough to accommodate the food ordered as the food delivery was poorly timed so there was no room on the small table for drinks, bread, salad and 2 entrees. I made this reservation well in advance but felt as though I was just shoved into a corner like a last minute add on. Too much commotion and noise at the bar. Also, lights turned down too low to see what you are eating. The food is good, except for the ziti that was so overcooked it was mush, but it’s not good enough to overcome all the other nonsense. Would not recommend.
It was my retired co-workers first time at Johnny’s. They loved it!
Food and service is excellent. Hard to find a restaurant with great service, they care about their customer
Food was delicious and our server was pleasant. Service seemed to slow after dinner while waiitng for our check. We may had been anxious because we had show tickets.
Food and service were great
I made a reservation for 7:45 pm. When we arrived, we had to wait a half an hour to be seated. Unacceptable. The waitress was fantastic, very friendly. The food was good. It was so loud in there, we could not hear each other. We will not be returning!
Positive experience. Good good. Convenient for Proctors!
