“Unsurpassed Filet”
Reviewed 5 August 2013

We've been to 2 Johns a couple of times for dinner in the past and several times to sit at the bar and share wine. But...

The occasion was celebrating the end of an amazing summer so this seemed like an amazing place to go. Greeted and seated right away for our admittedly last minute reservations we still had a great table in the quieter part of the restaurant. Our waiter ~ Ron ~ was exceptionally attentive without interfering with the evening.

We shared the Ahi Tuna for an appetizer and it was exceptional. Seared lightly, sliced thinly, with a mild oriental dipping sauce. Then on to the entree. My companion ordered the 7 oz. filet and I ordered the 7 oz. house specialty steak. Both were cooked medium rare and cooked exactly as ordered. Mine was coated with a pepper crust which was amazing. The were presenting on a bed of red skin mashed potatoes which were also excellent.

Following the main course we chatted as we enjoyed the wine we'd selected from an ample list then ordered a dessert to split. We chose the no flour chocolate cake which is served with vanilla bean ice cream and we shared cups of fine coffee with the dessert.

Yum!

Fine dining, fine food, fine service, fine atmosphere!

“Inconsistant”
Reviewed 26 July 2013

I love 2Johns, but there have been times where it compared to Dickie Brennan's Steakhouse, and one time where its only marginally better than Outback. This was one of the high-end times. The softest, most flavorful steak I've had. The service is fantastic, the bar is exceptional, and the atmosphere is elegant but comfortable. Expect to easily pay $100 for 2 adults for dinner.

“Expect to pay top dollar excellent food”
Reviewed 26 May 2013

Food was the best. It truly do get what you pay for. My buddy really freaked out when he saw the bill, I should have warned him that the prices reflect the quality. I think he really enjoyed the food but he didnt like paying the bill! (Which he expensed anyways)

“Don't Go for Brunch, Go For Dinner”
Reviewed 12 May 2013

We've always had great meals at 2 John's (and Leon's previously) and made reservations for Mothers' Day Brunch today, 1 pm seating, and walked out before dining due to the wait.

We've gone for Easter Brunch previously and loved it, when they allowed you to make reservations at any time. Today there were only two seatings, 11 and 1. We arrived at 12:55 for our 1 pm seating (most other folks were already waiting when we arrived). We were seated by 1:10 and waited in the buffet line until 1:30 and still weren't at the serving station. The food looked great, but for the price we weren't willing to wait in a 20 minute line every time we wanted to get a serving of food.

We'll go back for dinner, but not for brunch if they continue to have two mass seatings. I understand it is more efficient to get folks through the restaurant with two mass seatings, but it isn't as nice an experience. At this price point I'd like a nicer experience, if I want a long line we can go to a casino buffet.
