“My years of experience traveling the world have contributed to the vision for my restaurant. As my guest you will delight in my eclectic and delicious menu selections, fantastic wine list and impeccable service.”

We’ve always like Johannes. It is our special night place and we jumped on the opportunity to order Christmas Dinner. Aside from the food being off the hook without being over the top, I just have to compliment how good it was as take out. I’ve had some crappy take out from some great restaurants over this past year but Johannes and his staff know how to do it right!! Honestly, this is the best food we’ve had all year, no exaggeration. ” Johnny and Barry~ December 24, 2020

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
