Outstanding service and food! The restaurant is both relaxed and elegant. Our booth provided an intimate space, but we still felt a part of the larger dining room. The raw bar selections were excellent, the steaks were superb and the Mac 'n cheese was as good as promised. Most of all, the dining room staff made us feel pampered and engaged. Perfect for that special occasion.

We love Carlo & Johnny's! It is our go to place for all celebrations and just to enjoy great food. Service is excellent from valet, hostess and servers. I always get the filet. The filet plus lobster tail was awesome and a good value. I will be counting down to next visit.

It's been over a year since we experienced the joy of dining at Carlo & Johnny. Our group of 6 was ecstatic. Perfection from start to finish. Valet, outstanding. A warm welcome from the front of the house, wait staff from various stations all welcomed us warmly. Charlie Bledsoe and Kevin Lehman are managers that go above and beyond and take care of every detail to make sure our guest experience is exceptional and they check on us frequently throughout the evening. The joy of savoring our filet & lobster entrees cooked to perfect along with an array of almost every side dish allowed us to sate our appetites with leftovers for the day after. Of course we saved room for the delicious butter pie that melts in your mouth especially topped with a massive scoop of vanilla ice cream. Adrian rocked our service and what was better than the icing on the carrot cake? A fond farewell from the one and only Kate (best bartender ever). We will be back often! Thank you for a perfect evening.

The food was delicious as always and the service was very good. However, I think the ambiance has suffered some from the pandemic restrictions. Still, it was a very pleasant experience and we will return again. On the whole, I think the Ruby family has done an excellent job of providing a safe and enjoyable atmosphere to have a small celebration.

Beast steak in the city. All of Jeff Ruby's restaurants are excellent, but this is the best. Not only is the steak tremendous, the atmosphere is just right as well.

Food was good as usual and the service was the typical top notch you expect from a Jeff Ruby venue. You are made to feel as though your satisfaction is their top concern. Ambiance and setting were outstanding. High top tables are quite small for 2 quests, but acceptable. We enjoy our visits to all of Mr. Ruby's restuarants and plan to visit a different one next time.

The Ruby experience is unlike any other. I've never enjoyed a better steak and the preparation is amazingly consistent each visit regardless of location. The ambience at Carlo and Johnny's is fantastic and the service is first rate. DO NOT SLEEP on the Butter Pie. If you don't save room you are cheating yourself!

We frequent Carlos & Johnny fairly often. Our experience Valentine’s evening was exceptional even for them. Our server, Ben, was outstanding. Attentive but not overbearing, kind, friendly and knowledgeable. Steaks were even better than usual. Wonderful dinner.
