Overall we had a very good experience at Carlo and Johnny's. Our server was excellent and definitely went above and beyond. The only negative was that I ordered my steak medium and it came out medium well.

One or two vegan items could be added. It is a very pricey experience even though we had several gift cards. This will limit how often we come but love the dinner experience every time.

Went there to celebrate our anniversary and were seated in the Hollywood room. Decor was nice and lighting was low but not so low you couldn't see around. Food was excellent and the service was even better. Our waiter Chris T. Did everything he could to make sure our night was special.

Another great dinner here. Love the food and the staff. Zak as always took care of our needs, he pays attention to every detail. Kate behind the bar served us great drinks and we always enjoy her witty sense of humor. Charlie stopped by a few time to make sure we were being taken care of. Great food, great atmosphere,and great staff is why we come here almost every month

I went here with my Family before I leave overseas for a few years for work. From the second you pull into the valet you get 5 Star services. Adam was our server and he was outstanding! I would like to thank the entire staff at Carlo & Johnny for taking care of my family and giving them an experience they will never forget!!!
I am fortunate to get to travel all over the world for work and live outside the US for a while. I tell people in my travels, if you find yourself in Cincinnati, Ohio…….. you need to go to Jeff Ruby’s. It is the best steak I have ever had and service! My last stop before I leave for my assignment overseas is in Louisville this weekend and I already have a reservation for the Jeff Ruby’s on Friday. It will be an excellent sendoff for me!

The restaurant ambience is very nice. But having a table so close to the door that goes outside seating, is not ideal for the people sitting at the table. Overall the place is very nice to have a good meal.

This was our second trip to Carlo & Johnny's this year, and once again we couldn't have been more pleased with our dinner. The special -- lobster and filet $99 for 2 -- was conveniently split for just one of us so my husband had seafood instead of the special. There is nothing like a Jeff Ruby steak. My friend calls me a "Jeff Ruby snob" because when I want a fabulous dinner, I'll go nowhere else than Carlo & Johnny's. Adam, our waiter, was excellent and made our evening even more special.

This was my first time to dine at Carlo & Johnny. I really enjoyed the atmosphere, the waitress was great and very helpful and informative. The food was to-die-for! It was delicious! I ordered the blackened scallops and they were prepared to perfection! I believe it was a parmesan risotto served with the blackened scallops. My first time to ever try risotto, I fell in love! Thank you to the chef and all that prepared our meals. We will be dining here again, hopefully soon! Loved it!

A Ruby restaurant is where we go for special occasions and it was Carlo & Johnny this time. It's all about the steak for me when we go there but my wife (we were there for her 70th birthday) not so much. She had a scallop entree and loved it. Our best friends joined us and we had a great evening.
