    Daniel, you are a gem! It was so nice chatting with you while I waited for my husband to park. You started my night off great and the perfection continued from there. So happy to get in on your closing night before summer vacation and Johannes and his staff did not disappoint. The shrimp cocktail and Schnitzel were outstanding as was Barrie, our server. Thanks for a perfect date night see you in August!

    As always, we had an AMAZING experience. From the greeting at the front with Stephanie.....to an amazing job of attending to us by Ray. The food was over the top. We brought a friend who's never been before, and she said it was everything we'd described. We absolutely love this place it's one of our favorites not just in Palm Springs but in general. We look forward to many more memorable nights at Johannes.

    We look forward to our dining at Johannes every time we visit Palm Springs. It was closed back in 2020 due to COVID so we were looking forward to this visit which did not disappoint! From the great service to the outstanding food, we totally enjoyed our meal. We enjoyed the striped bass and pork chop as our entries. Both were very good and hardly left room for dessert, but we manage to share one to end the evening. Pre and post dinner cocktails as well as the wine fit the meal perfectly. Can't wait until our next visit. Great place to relax and enjoy a wonderful meal.

    Due to covid it has been years since I have dined out. Johannes was an excellent reentry point. The for donkey was fabulous,the Walla Walla cab franc hit all the rightspots. Barrie (sp?) still reigns as top server in palm springs and has held that rank for years. Johannes hit all the right notes. Bravo.

    I was the first to be seated and although I was smiled at or otherwise acknowledged by the other waitress, servers and busboys, it was quite some time before the waiter assigned to our table made any presence. After having enjoyed Johannes for a number of years, both for Restaurant Week and otherwise, I was disappointed to be advised that the restaurant was not participating in Restaurant Week this year. As we began to order, we requested separate checks to which the waiter responded that, because they use hand-written checks, he could accept multiple payments but only for a single check that included meals and drinks for all of us. With all the restaurant software options available, it's disappointing that any restaurant, especially one of this caliber, would not be implementing technological efficiencies. The escargot had an abundant sauce but, should have been served with additional bread. The Yaeger schnitzel was wonderful and a good sized portion but, could have been more spicey.

    Another wonderful evening spent at Johannes. Food, service, cocktails & wine were all impeccable. Dinner was (as always) delicious. However what makes the evening outstanding is the attentive service…..professional in every sense of the word!! Numerous dining choices in Palm Springs….but you can never go wrong in selecting Johannes.

    Did not appreciate the maitre d’ at first not agreeing to change our tabl. He claimed nothing was available in that room for more than an hour. However, we saw 2 empty tables and when we addressed him on this he agreed to give us one of them. We’ve been a patron of johannes for many years and never had this disdainful experience The maitre d seemed to prefer gay men to to us 2 women I wonder if anyone else has had this experience At johannes
