Johnny V opened in December of 2003 and features the unique cuisine of Chef Johnny Vinczencz. The food is Regional American with Latin and Caribbean influences. Chef Vincencz combines the freshest ingredients of South Florida with a beautifully blended selection of spices from the Caribbean and South America. The result is a wide ranging menu of unique items, like blue corn crusted calamari and ancho cinnamon grilled pork tenderloin. Sporting bold compositions and beautiful presentations, the cuisine at Johnny V is like a trek through America's Heartland by way of the islands. The Chef and his staff have worked had to make dining in this restaurant an elegant adventure. The restaurant has received numerous accolades including 4 stars from the Miami Herald, 4 Stars from the Sun-Sentinel and Wine Spectator's Award of Excellence. In 2005, it was voted #1 of the top 100 restaurants in the Sun-Sentinel as well as Best New Restaurant in Conde Nast Traveler.
I have visited for 6 business dinners and personal dinners over the past 3 months. Fabulous cheese appetizer (50 choices from around the world). Entrees have all been very good. Very nice presentations and experienced servers. My business guests have never been disappointed. The desserts look great but are not a strong point.
We took prospective clients to dinner here and everyone loved it. Great atmosphere, excellent wine selection (but pricey), good service. The food and dessert presentation was fantastic, as was the food. The portions were more than ample. The only negative for us was the music - it was very different for us - had an edge to it, which some no doubt prefer. We all agreed that jazz would have been preferable, but after a bit we didn't notice it.
It was not inexpensive, but frankly I would have expected to pay more for what we got (other than the wine), considering the whole package. I highly recommend this place, but only for adults - it's not for kids.
