Jessica Ginnow

Everything was lovely, but the beet salad was out of this world.

Lena Chachaj

Had dinner last night 7/2 , had a young dark haired waitress as our server. I was catching up with a dear friend, so I didn’t draw attention to the service, but it was very neglectful. Over an hour passed by in between courses , and as she cleared the table , she left me my dirty bread plate and silverware. I was given a fork to eat my ice cream with. They stopped refilling our water at 8:30 pm. The restaurant only had about 4 tables , not sure why no one would attend to us. We were two well-dressed courteous women, who still left a 20% tip.

Six out of towners had the best meal ever after the Traveler's Tournament at John's Cafe. From appetizers to main courses and desserts a real treat was consumed by all. If in town, stop on Main Street. You won't be disappointed.

The food was excellent and in decent portions. The side dishes are unique and flavorful, especially the corn one. The prix fix menu is really a good deal and delicious (either the cavatelli or shrimp risotto) and the blueberry maple bread pudding outstanding. The waitress we got was clueless and apparently hasn't worked in this business before. The food was worth overlooking the inept server, and was an excellent value. Highly recommended.

9/21/2019 My husband and I went out to celebrate our wedding anniversary, but we had difficulties with two other restaurants in the area that we had reservations with.. Long story short...I called John's and asked if they could accommodate us? They graciously said yes...and we had a wonderful meal!!! Patty was our waitress who was so sweet when she found out what happened...and made some dinner suggestions..all of which we followed and enjoyed throughly. So glad we went there!!! Everything was fantastic!!!! The service and food were fantastic!! Thank you Patty for saving the day

Tasteless food Was finally able to come to this place after hearing mixed reviews and got to experience the worst Shrimp Fradiavolo over pasta I ever had. Shrimps were pan fried and placed over the pasta over a pool of insipid red sauce; seafood is suppose to be cooked with the sauce not added as a garnish; the tomatoes sauce seems to be a generic one they use on every dish that needs it. The sausage and tomato sauce over pasta my lunch companion had was badly lacking in flavor as well; sausages pieces were just a soft mass of some sort of meat by product.

Robert Hopf

Had lunch here last year after relocating to area. Been in restaurant business for 40 years so I guess I know when cooking oil has not been changed and has turned rancid. Paid and left as this is unacceptable and shows lack of supervision.

Yvonne Harris

Great food and we had Gretchen an excellent waitress.

Marco Santarelli

Hmm ... Overpriced... awful service...and my favorite...terrible food... save your money go to John's Best this place is terrible

Tom Ritucci

The New York style cappuccino cheesecake is to die for!

Kimberly Rissolo

Great food and service. Can't wait to go back

James Campbell

Food is really good. A little pricey, but not a "break the bank" location either. The "Sunday Gravy" dinner is amazing if you enjoy pasta dishes!

Patricia Laure

Kristin Jackson

Jim Fried

Paul DiGiovanni

Amazing food, great atmosphere and service, we go at least every other month

Sal DeFini

Upscale, trendy & small. Pricy but the food is very good. Small bar area. Good for a special dinner out but you will go broke if you are a regular.

Frank Peters

John's Cafe is truly phenomenal. Service is stellar, and the food(!) Where do I start? I've been many, many places... but the black sea bass I had there tonight is world class. Might be the best I've ever had... do yourself a favor, and go to this place!!!

Mario not Luigi

I find it hard to believe anyone has ever had a bad meal in this restaurant. I have been eating here every few months for at least 15 years as have my parents and many friends -- the food is consistently excellent and the wine list is noteworthy in terms of by the glass selections! Don't let the simple name or the unpretentious outside fool you -- you might bump into a celebrity here at lunch at any time as this in the heart of "antiquing" territory and there are several entertainment folks who live nearby in Litchfield county. The restaurant is very small and casual, but high end in terms of its food and wines. The dishes are creative and consistently well done -- this is the type of place where you are never afraid to try something new or eclectic from the specials as the chef is top notch. John's Cafe is a little known gem with a consistent reputation and regular customers from all over the area.

First time here—great menu, something for everyone! The service is very kind & efficient, we came on a busy Saturday night and were seated within minutes. We ordered the steamed mussels, long hot peppers, the steak frites & blue crab linguine. Everything was delicious, steak cooked to medium rare perfection & the crab Linguine was delightful. Definitely will return!

Enjoyed Ceasar salad and pasta. Service was fine and we enjoyed the meal.

Brian Cascone

Amazing food. Great atmosphere and service. One of our favorite places to eat. Bring your own bottle of wine with no corkage fee Sunday and Monday. Best pork chop I have ever had.

Stephen Young

Been here a few times now and have an incredible experience every time. It's an intimate little bistro with great food, friendly staff and a creative menu. Salmon/Crab cakes were incredible as were the salads and entrees. Would highly recommend this to anyone.

Kerry Ann

We have always loved John’s, & looked forward to our after-Christmas holiday dinner here. But it was disappointing. But we will definitely try again! It’s usually terrific and the owner truly cares that people have a great experience.
