Absolutely loved our date night, birthday dinners. Wife and I have birthdays only a few days apart so this was our night. The staff was fantasti. Along with the food and ambiance. Another shining example of Jeff Ruby establishments.
Our visit was amazing! We went for my Birthday, and our server Dan was outstanding. He even brought out a Birthday cake for me, which was sooo good! We loved it!
This is the second year we have celebrated our anniversary at Carlo and Johnny’s. We absolutely love it and can’t wait to celebrate there again next year.
Another fantastic experience at Jeff Ruby's service was some of the best I've ever received, extremely knowledgeable waiter recommended some fantastic wines and wonderful pairings with our food, Jeff Ruby's continues to impress visit after visit
Good food but steak was closer to rare than medium. Steak was a lil underseasoned but had a great char on the outside. Sides were very good. Service was excellent. Will definitely go again when in town.
Food was outstanding. Felt a little rushed to eat and the bill was messed up, but they fixed it. Server forgot to include some items we wanted to take home.
Sat at a high top in the bar area. Super if you want to be part of the festivities of the band and dancing scene. We found it awesome! If you want something more quiet/formal one of the regular dining tables would be good.
Another great meal at Carlo and Johnny. Came with friends for my wife's birthday. Seated right on time and service was on point as always. Waiter was great as well as assistant. Steaks as always perfect and delicious. The Freddie salad, so simple yet a must eat. Will be back again soon.
Dan was one of the best servers I’ve had at any establishment.
Food and service and atmosphere were excellent! I would recommend to anyone who wants to celebrate a special occasion with family or friends.
Location is convenient.
Amazing anniversary dinner.
Great food. Nice staff. Expensive. It wasn't a surprise, though. The steak was perfect.
I would rate Carlo and Johnny as the best restaurant in the Montgomery area. This was our second visit in the last two years. The 5 of usl loved the steaks, the french fries, the pork bellies, and the desserts. The service was impeccable as was the ambiance.
We were seated near a bar, a water station, and a corridor to the kitchen, so my wife and I felt a cold draft on our legs throughout the meal. If we were seated there in a subsequent visit I would ask for a different table.

Dan and Charlie treated us like royalty! We were there to celebrate the one year anniversary of my husbands kidney transplant. We were celebrating with his donor and her husband. When they found out why we were there, we were treated even more special! What a wonderful evening and we may make it our “kidneyversary” place for years to come!
Five stars for everything. Went for my mom’s 75th birthday and she loved it. You don’t get service like this in many restaurants anymore.
Always great food and service unfortunately I'm short on the 50 word minimum
Great food and service. What we expect form Jeff Ruby' restaurants. Filet was moist an d cooked to perfection.
We had a wonderful dinner experience to celebrate our anniversary. The service was attentive and friendly, and the food was delicious. It truly was a special evening.
Carlo and Johnny never disappoints. We tried the sea Scallops this time along with the Filet Mignon and it was amazing as always.
Exceptional dining experience. Staff was attentive and kind.
We had a fantastic experience as usual! Our waiter Dan recommended we try a few different oysters instead of our typical choices. He even took time to educate us on the differences between the selections. He was attentive, knowledgeable, and friendly. We were well cared for, the food and drinks were timely, and the entire staff was wonderful. This is the best restaurant in Cincinnati!
Excellent steak and service is par for the course for a Jeff Ruby restaurant. Carlo & Johnny does not disappoint if you're looking for a great—albeit expensive—steak and top-notch service for a date night or special occasion. It was more than enough for two to split a Porterhouse and add the Collinsworth topping. Expect to pay extra for sides, but they, too, are delicious. Broad wine list and creative seasonal cocktails. Building layout has many additions which make it more difficult than usual to find your way around, but does make it feel like you have your own cozy little "wing" of the restaurant.
Always love our visits to Carlo & Johnny!! Food and service is excellent. Pricey but we plan for that and it’s our go to place for special occasions.
Steak was good. Baked potato was overcooked. Service was really good. Prices are high. EVERYTHING is a la carte. Same food as The Precinct, but The Precinct is not a la carte. Next time I will wait for a seat at The Precinct!
Great. As usual.
Service and quality are the cornerstones to a Jeff Ruby restaurant. Consistently one of the best steakhouses in the country. Our waiter Steven was top notch and directed the meal service like a fine tuned machine. A must try for any occasion. Also a great bar scene too.
Carlo and Johnny's is a great place to celebrate a special occasion. My wife and I recently had our 50th anniversary dinner there. The food was great and our waiter, Zack, took good care of us. It is expensive though, so not a place where you want to go for a regular evening out. Save it for special occasion.
Food and ambiance were excellent; as always. Jim was outstanding. The Valet guys are top notch, too.
Not impressed. Extremely expensive and the food was cold. Good flavor but cold. Beer was old and tasted skunky. Salad dressing was nearly non existent. Waiter was okay, but not friendly. Probably won’t spend my money here again. Can find great food that is hot in other locations. Have eaten here before and always enjoyed the experience, but not this time.
Annual Anniversary dinner at Ruby’s restaurant as we met at The Waterfront. It never disappoints. Thanks Dan, the service and down right friendliness was so appreciated! See y’all next time!!
Mr. Jeff Ruby continues to offer Cincinnati diners an exceptional experience in his establishments. Chris our waiter was outstanding and made sure everything was wonderful. We were happy to celebrate our 25th anniversary dinner with them.
Took our son for his birthday/college acceptance. It was a special night and they did not disappoint. Food was excellent and outstanding service. Friendly staff that was very helpful. A little pricey but worth it. Will definitely go back for special occasions in the future.
My first time at one of Jeff Ruby restaurants. I plan on going back.
Went for a birthday dinner. They are crazy busy so you will have to book a reservation a few weeks in advance. The food is expensive but generally it is REALLY good. The portions are generous and half portions are available. I have been a few times and have always been pleased.
Wasn't impressed with this steakhouse.
My husband, and I chose this restaurant to celebrate our anniversary.
To start off we were served complimentary bread with truffle butter. The bread had a tough crust, and watching my husband struggle taking a bite was rather unsightly. I passed on the bread.
We both decided to share an appetizer which was the Jumbo Lump Crab Cake with red pepper vinaigrette and tartar sauce. So delicious, and beautifully executed!
For the entree, I ordered the New York strip cooked between medium and medium rare.
My husband ordered the Chris Collinsworth with the Steakhouse Gratin Potatoes for the side dish to share.
My steak didn't "wow" me like I thought it would given the diners reviews here on Yelp!
Sadly, I have had better steaks elsewhere that were just as comparable in quality, and grade.
I did try my husbands steak, loved the flavor and how tender it was. The steak melted in my mouth. The bordelaise and béarnaise sauce that lathered, and bathed the steak had such an off taste that didn't compliment it in the least.
My husband didn't care for the sauces either.
He loved the steak, it's tenderness, along with the crab, and the asparagus.
A great tasting steak should never drown in sauce. Of course that's my opinion.
We both enjoyed the shared side dish.
Because we were celebrating our anniversary our waiter brought out a complimentary on the house cheesecake. Apparently it's Jeff Ruby's mothers family recipe. That was very kind!
Went there for our anniversary celebration. We felt welcome from the moment we stepped in the door. Had never been there before and Dan was outstanding in making our evening a wonderful event. Our steaks were the best we ever had.
I requested a table in the main dining room which we got. Chris, our server, was very good; food was outstanding Ruby's quality comes out in his steaks no matter where you go.
Steaks are always amazing! Raw bar and wine selection also great!
Lobster below average...would not order it again.
Entertained some new hires as well as out of town guests. They were amazed, and quite impressed with their meals and wines.
Our server, Jim Belmont, was excellent as usual. He is very attentive and detailed, which is why we ask for him each time.
