Everything from the time entered to the time we left was just perfect. The first thing we noticed was the comfortable seating. The service & food were top notch. A wonderful evening. – Nancy

I can honestly say that Johannes has the best seafood in Palm Springs. It is a treat to have the salmon dinner or one of his seafood appetizers. I take family and friends & they love it all. – Marilyn

Johannes has been a long time main stay in fine dining. The Schnitzel is sublime, the service attentive but not intrusive and the tables have respectable spacing – not crowded. – Dr. Know

Very distinctive menu with Austrian and Central European style dishes that are seldom seen, even in continental restaurants. Great presentation and wine pairing suggestions. – Richard H

The desserts that you can order at Johannes are amazing. I always look forward to the Dessert Trio. The perfect meal includes the Endive Salad, the Schnitzel and the Dessert Trio. – Erin

Johannes continues to be the best restaurant in Palm Springs. The food is always well prepared. Great specials! The service is the best. – Greg
