      Be care of the blackboard specials
      I've walked past this place for years, it's right on the corner of "Gay and Gayer" in Palm Springs (Arenas & Indian Canyon). On a Sunday night they were pretty full and I was solo and the only table was a high top by the front window which was great. Friendly welcome, good service...interesting menu and they have a black board with specials, but no prices. Loooking at the menu I thought the place was competitively priced and just ordered off the blackboard...wrong thing to do, $10 for a tiny Brussel sprouts salad and $30 for Swordfish pushing those items up quite a bit from what normal menu prices were. The food was excellent, and service as well, but I was a bit blindsided when my bill came.

      What? You haven't been here yet?!?!
      We go to Johannes every time we are in PS and are never disappointed. The menu is a bit more on the upscale/creative side, focusing on seasonal local and/or sustainable meats and produce, but isn't outrageously over priced. They offer a great drinks menu and wine list. The staff is always super friendly. It's a great place for a quiet dinner for 2 or a small group. Go, you won't be disappointed.

      Outstanding
      Have dined here twice, and the food was amazing, creative, fairly priced. It's not inexpensive, but it IS one of the area's offerings that is actually worth the money. Try it!!!

      Little Gem of a Restaurant
      This little gem of a restaurant sits conveniently at the corner of Indian Canyon Drive and Arenas Road, right near many of Palm Springs' popular gay bars. You may have walked right by its unassuming exterior. If you go during the month of October 2009, the restaurant is celebrating its 10-year anniversary with some outstanding lunch and dinner specials. Johannes consists of two intimate-sized dining rooms. In addition, there is a bar area with a couple of high-top tables, and six seats providing a fascinating view into their busy galley kitchen. Our group of four chose the bar, where we were served from a menu of numerous delicious bargain-priced tapas. Then we chose from another small menu of chef Johannes Bacher's signature Austrian Wiener Schnitzel. The Schnitzels were offered with either veal or chicken, along with your choice of 6 or 8 sauces. The two small dining rooms offer fuller menus of interesting sounding European/Asian inspired entrees. Johannes is a very nice upscale dining experience. The dining room tends to the pricey side, whereas the bar is an unbelievable bargain.
