Loved the homey feeling of the restaurant. Asked our waiter about the “ghost” and our waiter went to get me a history of the restaurant.

Always superb! We sat in the bar area tonight instead of the dining room. Preferably it much more! Same exceptional food but with a laid back atmosphere.

We went because they were offering that special of steak and shrimp. This is nice because it enables us to dine at C&J more frequently than only at birthdays and anniversaries. As always, the food was excellent and the service great. Not many places have more ambiance than Jeff Ruby’s restaurants.

We love Carlo & Johnny for special occasions. The only downside to this visit is we were seated by the opening next to the bar and the live music was loud. This probably only affected a few tables and was not overbearing but not the quiet intimate experience we have had there in the past.

Rude hostess, bad seating and clueless service. Nothing went right from the minute we walked in. Maybe a fluke but won’t be going back anytime soon.

This place was amazing! My wife and I were in the area from Tampa, Florida and decided to have our anniversary dinner there. The staff was outstanding, the food superb, and the environment was perfect! I WILL return to this location whenever we are in town visiting family for sure.

Excellent restaurant with outstanding service and food. Exactly what we expected from a Ruby's restaurant as we normally go the Louisville location. Loved the atmosphere and the bar area which was cool and fun! Would recommend to anyone who lives or is visiting the Cincinnati area.

My daughter likes to go to Carlo & Johnny each year for her birthday. That was the purpose of our evening. She likes to sit outside in the courtyard. They always make it happen and she always has a great time.

My wife and I felt like our steaks were not as good as usual. We ordered the special Surf an Turf and the Filet just wasn't like we have had before. Everything else was great as expected. Will return again.

As always, Charlie was an excellent host. Loved the wine recommendation for Roberts & Roberts Cabernet. Sara was a wonderful waitress as well. We sat at the last table by the sushi bar. It was a great spot for people watching.

Shrimp were way over done. Steaks were mediocre, not a lot of flavor even with the Collinsworth topping. The salads were way too salty. Service was excellent! Sadly just the food was poor quality. Desserts were wonderful!

Celebrated our daughter’s 22nd Birthday at Carlo and Johnny’s. The staff went out of their way to welcome her on her first visit and make her birthday extra special.

Food and service were impeccable.

We began a yearly tradition with this dinner and look forward to our next visit.

Service was excellant as was the food. The only draw back was the noise level. It was difficult hearing each other after the room started to fill up
