We were in Hot Springs, VA last month celebrating my birthday with family. We went to John's for some German food since we read that while a steakhouse, their German cuisine was very good. We asked to speak to the chef twice, and he never came out. The chef and owner are one in the same, and his wife is the hostess and server. She was not very warm or friendly. We actually felt we were imposing by making reservations and dining in the restaurant. By the way, there was only one other group of four people who came in all evening.
