Food and service are excellent. Ambiance is very cool with an old Chicago theme & feel. It is expensive.
We reserve Carlo & Johnny for Special MUST BE Perfect occasions. I wish we didn’t cause we would dine there more often, but then where would we go for SPECIAL. TheIR menu variety is outstanding as is their service...but how can you go there and not get steak. The best meat and preparation anywhere. It is always PERFECT.
Carlo & Johnny's is an outanding restaurant like all Jeff Ruby Steakhouses. The steaks are amazing as well as all of the side dishes. I would highly recommend any Jeff Ruby Steakhouse Restaurants if you want a quality meal with superb service.
Every element of the evening was lovely! Except the table of 7 in the middle of the room was distastefully loud, disruptive and down right rude and distracting! Not much the wait staff could do, they did comp a dessert for us. Nice gesture!
Celebrated our anniversary. Clay our server could not have been more fun or accommodating. He was vey personable, helpful and fun. Would recommend Carlo and Johnny to anyone and ask for Clay. You will not be disappointed.
I’m sure the patio is nice on a nice evening but we were there when it had just gotten hot... and a little buggy, some tiny red thing that bites. I’d also suggest they swap the corner seating arrangement for the larger table so those sitting at that table don’t have to look at the corner of the building were the back side is white and mildewed vs the side that’s painted yellow and faces the courtyard. The strung clear lights were nice but the purple and hot pink wrapped on the trees were an interesting choice. Food was excellent as always.
Another wonderful Jeff Ruby dining experience! Excellent service by Dan and food was cooked to perfection. We love this place and are already planning our next trip to Ohio.
As always this was an exceptional experience. Highly skilled, attentive and friendly wait staff, outstanding food and great atmosphere.
Excellent food and service!! The staff was absolutely wonderful! The steaks were cooked perfectly and so tender. Best place to dine in Cincy! Definitely a favorite!
Celebrated wife's birthday with a special dinner at Carlo & Johnny. Everything about the experience was terrific from the moment the valet parked our car. We were welcomed immediately by the hostess and were seated quickly. The ambiance was nice -- a talented guitarist was playing background music loud enough to be heard and appreciated but quiet enough to not interfere with conversation. Our primary server was very helpful with picking a wine and answering questions about the menu. He also gave a nice history of the building. Our party had a Steak Collingsworth, 2 Steak Anthony Munoz, and 1 Filet Mignon. All were prepared perfectly and were a delight to eat. Our side dishes and desserts were outstanding as well.
Great atmosphere, great food, and great friends = great time. I wish I could afford to eat here more often.
We chose Carlo and Johnny for dinner to celebrate our 7 year wedding anniversary. The food is always delicious and tonight didn't disappoint either. Freddie salad was on point. I ordered the Steak Collinsworth and it was cooked perfectly! My husband ordered the barrel cut filet, also great! Asparagus was fresh and crisp. Cheesecake for dessert was a nice surprise! We will be back!
We ate here for an anniversary dinner. The service and food were top notch. The beer selection was limited and there was nothing on draft. The strawberry mojito was refreshing and there was a nice selection of wines. The Munoz and Collingsworth steaks were delicious. Each had different toppings and sauces. The baked potato and green beans as side dishes were prepared in the usual manner and not as hot as I like my food but the portions were large enough to be shared. We mentioned it was our anniversary and we had a complimentary slice of cheesecake to celebrate but we also got a slice of six layer chocolate mousse cake to go. It was white chocolate over white, medium and dark chocolate cake and mousse. It was delicious and enough to be shared. Our waiter and his helpers were very personable. The manager stopped by our table to make sure everything was going well and I was even escorted to the ladies room by one of the handsome waiters. Great place for a special occasion but we want to go back and sit in the bar area to enjoy the live music.
Food was great, very much enjoyed the evening with my wife
The food, especially if you like a good steak, is all wonderful and well prepared and presented. The staff is friendly, make you feel comfortable and service is impeccable. We did notice that there were several business people eating and so it doesn't matter if it's business or a special occasion, this is the place for great food, service and atmosphere. We had a wonderful anniversary and have had them there before and will do it again.
We had the most amazing time. The food was amazing and our waiter was the best. Thank you Chris for all your assistance.
Overpriced. Charging 3$ for Valet was absurd. Everything ala cattle with entrees very high priced. Service and food was superb.
Amazing food and service.
Carlo & Johnny is a Cincinnati gem from local celebrity restaurateur Jeff Ruby. Known for the best steaks in Cincinnati, Ruby also offers great seafood and an extensive array of adult beverages. Carlo & Johnny is tucked away in Montgomery, a suburb about 15 miles north of downtown Cincinnati. Housed in an historic mansion, the restaurant has a very cool atmosphere. The service is absolutely first-class--from the valet, to the hostess, to the wait staff. PRO TIP: save room for the Original Butter Pie as dessert!
The food was delicious. We ordered salmon, and it was excellent. We appreciated the fact that we were asked how well done we wanted our portions. The watermelon salad was unique. The desserts were out of this world. The waiters were very solicitous, and gave us an extra portion of dessert because it was our anniversary. We very much enjoyed the experience.
Service excellent,food over priced . I have been dining here for about 10 years. This visit and my previous visit have been disappointing. The food seems to be declining in taste and preparation. This is most probably sadly my last visit. We frequent this location and The Precinct. We like the ambiance of Carlos and did love the food as well,but not so much for the food anymore. The bar location at the Precinct is great .
Delicious food and impeccable service. I highly recommend the macaroni and cheese. My husband and I will be back again for our Anniversary or even another occasion.
As always, excellent food and service. It doesn't matter if you are a millionaire or you are an average Joe, they treat everyone like you are celebrity. A very classy place with superior service and food.
Best steak I've had in a long time! Our waiter, Michael, went above and beyond to make sure our anniversary was great!
I TRIED TO LIST A FEW OF THE ABOVE, BUT IT WOULDN'T LET ME! WE HAD BEEN TO "THE PRECINCT PREVIOUSLY, BUT IT WAS TIGHT(PACKED IN) AND A FRIEND RECOMMENDED "CARLO & JOHNNY'S AND WE LOVED IT! THE SAME GREAT STEAK AND FOOD, BUT QUIETER AND NOT AS TIGHTLY PACKED, LIKE SARDINES!
Anniversary with friends who also celebrated their anniversary
Over the top great! Kate took special care of us which is appreciated. It why we keep coming back.
Although a bit "pricey" Carlo and Johnny's is 5 star Everything and you get what you pay for. From the moment the valet attendant opens your vehicle door to the conclusion of the meal and you return to the porte'-cachere to find your vehicle waiting, the entire experience is wonderful.
My wife and I recently celebrated our anniversary at Carlo and Johnny and it was a fantastic experience! Every item we ordered was of the highest quality and delicious. The service from our server TJ, the manager Brian S, and the rest of the staff was phenomenal. I highly recommend it to anyone looking to make an event out of a meal.
Always a great place to celebrate.
Our 32nd Wedding Anniversary .... We were engaged 33 years ago at The Waterfront and we go back every year to a Jeff Ruby restaurant and celebrate. We also go at other times during the year. Food is superb and the service is the BEST!
Excellent service! The food was exceptional. I highly recommend Carlo and Johnny for any special occasion.
One of my favorite special occasion dining experiences . Great atmosphere and the service is always outstanding. Great variety on the menu
First time was amazing! Our waiter Chris was so helpful describing the different dishes and making recommendations. We all tried something different and we're not disappointed. The side dishes are large more than enough to share with three. Can't miss with desserts. We will be going back!
Exceptional food and service!!
Steaks were tough. Not worth the $220 we spent. Service good, over priced for side items.
Went for a birthday celebration. Service was impeccable as always. Good was outstanding.
My husband and I each had the delicious tomato basil soup and shared the Freddie Salad and a filet that was perfectly cooked. They split the salad and filet perfectly. The asparagus and baked potato were cooked just right and along with the bread, we had more than enough to eat. Our server was very welcoming and accomadating. We never felt rushed. The manager stopped by to check on us. It was a very nice evening and I’m sure we’ll be back.
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our time at Carlo & Johnny. We had drinks, appetizer, entrees and desert. Since it was our anniversary they gave us desert although we ordered creme brule as well.
The crab cake was amazing. We decided to split meals and ordered the cowboy rib eye and scallops with risotto. The car they get on the steak is delicious even on a medium steak. The cream sauce on the scallops were excellent as well.
Overall, the experience was definitely worth the price of admission. We will definitely return to Carlo & Johnny.
