Carlo & Johnny
Great experience, as expectedRuby's and Carlo & Johnny never fails to exceed. The service is outstanding and the staff is constantly paying attention to every single detail. Just utterly outstanding. Other than my steak being a bit over cooked (still amazing), no complaints. There's a reason why I frequent Carlo & Johnny along with the other Ruby's locations - great food, outstanding service, and plentiful wine selections. The price maybe intimidating to some, but the quality and service is very difficult to beat.6/16/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderfulWe were actually there on Saturday 6/15/2013 and we were celebrating our 10 year wedding anniversary. The staff was a pleasure and made our wonderful night so enjoyable. We only get to come down to the resturant once a year but it is always worth every minute of it. The waiter that we had was upset with us that we didn't tell him at the beginning that we were celebrating our anniversary. He informed us that they like to show their congrautlations and we didn't inform him until we were getting ready to walk out of the resturant. He was very nice and said that next time it is a special occasion we need to make sure and tell the waiter at the beginning!6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, atmosphereHouse has a lot of character, each room is a different dining experience. Looking forward to the upgrades planned for the outdoor seating area. One unsavory woman throwing the f-bomb around while waiting for their limo - I guess being rich doesn't always equate to having class!6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMBest steak ever!No doubt about it, Jeff Ruby knows steak. I had the "Anthony Munoz" served with rock shrimp, mushrooms and a Bearnaise sauce and it was amazing. My wife had the Queens filet and it was excellent as well, but looked rather lonely on the plate. We had two sides to share, mushrooms and asparagus. The mushrooms were very good, but the asparagus was rather mundane.
Our server Lindsey Watzek was perfect, she was there when we needed her but not smothering or constantly hovering like some people do. This is not somewhere we would go on a regular basis due to the high cost, but for a special occasion, it is a great choice.6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMCustomer DiningI first read about Carlo & Johnny on Yelp prior to a customer visit. My customer agreed that Carlo & Johnny had a great reputation in the area. She booked on-line as we drove to our off-site meeting. From our greeting at the entrance, through a few drinks, appetizers to dinner, the service, food, ambiance and was really great. It tapped off a great visit with my customer.6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMOMG!!! The steak melts inOMG!!! The steak melts in your mouth. It's so delisious. The service is great. They are on top of the food game here at this place. I absolutely love this place. Went with my wife for our anniversary, and at the end of the best cooked steak ever, they brought us a piece of chocolate heaven. Just such great food and service!!! Thanks!!6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMCelebrating at Carlo and JohnnyFantastic experience from the hostess greeting to receiving the check. My wife and I celebrated our wedding anniversary at Carlo & Johnny and the food, ambiance, and service was impeccable. If you ever go, ask for Thomas as a waiter. He was incredible!6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMBest of the bestThis was a special celebration for our family. This was a great night we are still talking about days later. We will be back!6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent ExperienceTook my wife to Carlo & Johnny's for our anniversary. We've had "good" dining experiences before, but this Jeff Ruby's restaurant put them all to shame. Excellent wine selection, shrimp cocktail, steaks (of course) and dessert. The special touches that the staff did for our meal were outstanding. I highly recommend Carlo & Johnny's.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome experienceJeff Ruby continually provides excellence and this was no different. Our server, Thomas, was fabulous, the food was awesome and I certainly recommend Carlo and Johnny to everyone.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMSpectacular as alwaysWe go to Carlo and Johnnys several times a year to celebrate major family events. It was tremendous, as always!6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food and customer serviceMy husband and I drove 30 minutes to eat at Johnny and Carlos for our anniversary. We had a such wonderful experience - the food was amazing and the service was fantastic. They even gave us a wonderful table and free desert to celebrate our anniversary. It felt very special. We will definitely return to celebrate other special occasions!6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMalways greatTook my parents here for their anniversary because they love it, and we are never disappointed! They even brought out a little anniversary dessert plate for them. Very nice! Thanks again for a wonderful evening!6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMExpensive but goodThe food and service were excellent! I recommend a sweater if wearing summer dress. You will certainly get a great steak, and everyoneis attentive to your needs while allowing you to enjoy your dinner without feeling rushed or watched over.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything was fantasticWhat can I not say about Carlo and Johnny's that isn't glowing? Everything is perfect from the food to the decor to the ambiance to the service where everyone is not only nice and charismatic, but funny and sweet as well. Absolutely perfect for a special occasion dinner. Everything was delicious, everyone who I came in contact with inside of the restaurant was very helpful, kind, and wonderful, and the ambiance was absolutely perfect for a special night out.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazingFrom apps to salad steak and desert everything top notch5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent but $$$$$Great food and services within beautiful aviance. Valet parking helped due to rain. So costly that I would return for only occasions of true celebrations and we frequently eat out at nice places.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMDeliciousMy husband and I went to Carlo and Johnny for our first year anniversary. I am not much of a steak person, but I got the queen filet with bernaise sauce and my husband had the 12 oz steak with pepper sauce. It was phenomenal! The steak melted in my mouth. Best dinner we have ever had. We also got the asparagus and baked macaroni and cheese and they were also delicious. We will be making this restaurant one of our frequent spots.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMWith family in for a specialWith family in for a special occasion Carlo and Johnny's was the obvious choice. As expected the food was great and the wine selection excellent. The service was good but not at the level we have come to expect from a Ruby's restaurant. That said everyone wanted to know when we were going to bring them back for the best steaks in town.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday dinnerWe took our family to dinner for our son's 18th birthday. Though the meal is pricey, the food and service are absolutely out of this world. My children (18, 15, and 13) can't wait to go back!
We will definitely go again, but will likely wait for a special occasion. This isn't a restaurant we would go to for everyday dining.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMThrowbackThis place is a . throwback ti the formal high service restaurant of 40 years ago. Could be a set for Mad Men. Food was exquisite starting with the best steak tarter I have had in a long time
I will return for more5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMAnniversary celebratedGreat Ambiance, attentive staff, superb food and special extra touch of a photograph to remember the evening.5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMOverallThis is me and my wifes favorite place to eat. We come back every year for our anniversary and have never had bad food or service. They are very attentive and caring for your needs which is rare in the restaurant business now-a-days. Although a bit pricey its always well worth it. There was an issue with the bill the last time we went, the waiter did not argue and was very apologetic. We love this place!5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Experience Everytime!The food is great, the service is excellent, and restaurant is wonderful. It's worth every dime and I'll definitely be going back!5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMcelebrateWe were celebrating a special birthday. This was the perfect place. Food was delicious as always.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMYour Steakhouse Search Ends HereWow! Carlo and Johnny was about the best steakhouse experience I have ever had. We have been to Jags, Embers, Eddie Merlot's and St. Elmo's in Indy in the last year and while they were all good, Carlo & Johnny was definitely the best. The ambiance is very comfortable. The service was attentive and competent, never overbearing. The wine list is extensive and if money is no object, you can enjoy some rare bottles of wine. The steak was cooked PERFECTLY and the creamed spinach was a actually creamed spinach, not spinach-infused butter and cream. The flavor of everything was outstanding. Now, all of this excellence isn't inexpensive, but if you like steakhouses, this is one you have to try.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMThe steaks were the best ever.The steaks were the best ever. The service was delinquent at times and inattentive..5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful steakAs always the steak was wonderful. Perfect crust and cooked to perfection. Best in the US.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderfulOverall another wonderful Jeff Ruby meal. Great service, delicious food, and we love the charm of the Carlo and Johnny's decour!5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMRuby is a gemCarlo and Johnny's is a stand out restaurant in Cincinnati - perhaps the best. Food and service are consistently high quality year after year. Although it is characterized as a steak house (a lable off-putting to many) you can sample some of the best sea food in the midwest here. There is also a wide offering of beef alternatives. Sides and salads are fresh and bright and get as much attention form the cook staff as their finest entres. The wine list is extensive and ranges from moderate to very high end. I have never left Carlo and Johnny's feeling I'd had anyhthing less than a fine dining and service experience.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMBrunch Mothers DayAs always a great time at Rubys restaurants , never an issue5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Mother's Day BrunchWe had a great time! Our servers were very attentive! Brunch was amazing!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMBig SuppriseI love Carlo & Johnny restaurant. Ask what the Market Price of the Kobe steak is when you order it. It might shock you if you don't ask. I was supprised when the bill came.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGood Steak and Predictable menueThis is a Ruby restaurant. The service and the food are at the same high level as other locations. We find this one a bit more accessible then the others location-wise. Big raw bar and good drinks too.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding food and service.My wife and I went to Carlo and Johnny's for our anniversary. It was the first time we have gone to such a nice place. The service was outstanding and everyone was very helpful. Any questions were quickly answered. My steak was excellent as was my wifes Salmon. We have already recommended it to our friends. We can't wait to go there again.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMToo close quarters; hear tooToo close quarters; hear too many other conversations & feel cramped.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMBetter food than rubys downtownBeen to them all and the precinct and Carlo's have better tasting food than the downtown restaurant. The steaks are cooked perfectly. The 65 day dry aged was outstanding Great food and time as usual5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMC&JWas in awe of the prices, more than anything else. A steak for $44? Maybe I'm out of touch, but how many people can afford this type of meal, who are not an expense account?5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMAnniversary night outVisited Carlo & Johnny for our 17th anniversary and was definitely treated like we were kings. Wait staff was excellent & very attentive. Ordered the bone-in Filet for the first time and was blown away by the taste! It was by far the best tasting steak i have ever eaten! Excellent wine choice by our waiter. Definitely one of the best dinners we have had in our 17 years of marriage! Will definitely be going back BEFORE our 18th!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellentI own a number of bars annd restaurants in the northeast. So, you might say I have some knowledge. Excellent property! I was staying in the city, and had my staff meet there for dinner as it was highly rated. I have tired "the companies" other stores, and they were good as well. Hence, it was not a huge gamble. Food, service, and wine were excellent! Decor, very well done. Onnly complaint, but nothing major...charging $3 to park my car? I am spendning hundreds in your restaurant...do you need to hit me for $3?
FYI..spend the money! The bone in filet rocks!5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMWe took my parents their forWe took my parents their for their 50th wedding anniversary, I mentioned it on my open table registration.

Outstanding steaks and service, the best we've ever had in Cincinnati.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMAs with all Jeff Ruby restaurants,As with all Jeff Ruby restaurants, the food was impeccable for what it is -- top of the line Americn fare and the staff was attentive without being pushy. Unfortunately, the noise level was over the top and made conversation difficult, even at our small table for four.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food is amazing! Overall,The food is amazing! Overall, it was a great experience, but it was quite noisy with a cover band and two large parties that were seated right next to us. We were celebrating a graduation and had requested a dessert be presented to a member of our party, and although they came to the table on several occasions mentioning the graduation they failed to bring the dessert.
We have also been to the Precinct and would probably go back there on our next outing, simply for a different atmosphere. The food really is the best of the best, so I could definitely recommend it to anyone!4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMOverall excellent diningOverall excellent dining expierence.
