My husband and I used to live in Kansas City, MO, and we honestly didn’t think the steak in Cincinnati could compare. I am pleased to say that we were wrong! This was the BEST meal that we have EVER eaten anywhere! Our server, Dan, was so attentive and personable. He made us feel welcome and made sure we were satisfied. The ambiance here is romantic, and we loved learning about the history of this building! This is absolutely our new favorite restaurant. Try the house made ice cream after dinner...to fill in the cracks. ;)

Sometimes when you go to a restaurant and they have an advertised special or reduced price menu you might expect that what you get is not as high-quality as the regular menu items. At Carlo and Jonny’s, the filet mignon and lobster tail special was outstanding. Lobster tender, cooked perfectly and the meat was flavorful and grilled to order. Our waiter Stephen, was attentive and not obtrusive, and made our evening. Our favorite restaurant to splurge and celebrate a special occasion.

We went to Carlo & Johnny for a Birthday celebration. We were disappointed. The waiter forgot my glass of wine, but the manager did compensate us by giving us a free dessert. We ordered the parmesan truffle fries as one of our sides. They weren't as hot as we would have liked. Our waiter was pleasant, but seems very distracted. For the amount of money we spent for a family of four, I felt it wasn't a great value. Would probably try a different steak place before coming back to this restaurant.

Always enjoy CJs. Great service, great food, and Sunday's are nice because they are quieter. Thank you for making our "off menu" habenero tomato bisque (always a favorite), the valet guys are spectacular at this location, and we really enjoyed everything. Nothing to complain about, except it wasn't free. :)

My husband and I enjoyed yet another perfect C&J meal for a romantic night out. We always (ALWAYS) have nothing less than perfection when we dine at C&J. It’s always a very special meal, as we got married there last year. Every single person who works there (from valet to hostess to bartender to server to busser and manager) ensures everything is perfect and that you feel special. We love it here and always book far in advance to make sure we can get in!

From the moment we entered we felt like special guests. Adrian and the other wait staff attended to every possible want or need we could possibly have. It was my wife's 40th birthday and they were totally prepared. Everyone knew it was her birthday and made her feel special. They sat us near the fire in a corner table in a private and romantic setting. The food and wine were excellent. Couldn't have been a better experience.

Great property and great food. My only complaint is that we were seated in the bar area and there was live music playing. Fantastic everything and the group was awesome but a little difficult talking to and hearing your dining partner because of the music.
Slight inconvenience on a wonderful night out at a wonderful place.

We frequent Carlo& Johnny but this time was very disappointing. Our service miss careful and I think I sought for a good 16 minutes without a glass of wine for bread after we had asked for it. The mashed potatoes were cold and the bearnaise sauce tasted sour after O sent back a couple times. We were seated by the Easter bar and that was kind of disappointing as that on beyonce is kind of strange. We still love Carlo and Johnny it was just a disappointing evening

We frequent all of the Ruby's restaraunts often, and support all that Jeff does for the community. The food and service were both beyond impeccable, yet all of which were literally ruined by an EXTREMELY loud table of 4 who I can only assume were regulars based on the interactions with the staff and management. There were 5 couples around us all celebrating some sort of event and all were upset and offended by the boisterous and abnoxious behavior of the table in the center of the small room. This over the top behavior was not tempered and only encouraged by the staff. It's our last time here unfortunately.

Date night for my wife’s Birthday. 1st time visitors. Typically go to Precinct but they were booked. We were very impressed and had the same overall excellent experience.

Only negative was the parking lot... condition was poor considering the venue. The logistics were odd. Noticed valet parking cars on the fence line (non-valet) and there were spots in the valet area open.

Always love an evening at Carlo wonderful cocktails; broad - and reasonable - wine list; knowledgeable wait professionals. We celebrated my wife’s birthday (and it was on our “date nite”, too). More than 10 years ago our whole family (4 of our 5 kids; 7 of our then 9 grandkids) celebrated our being united in Ohio after 33 years in the USAF! And I’ve had a solo dinner or two at the restaurant and was treated the same as when our mob was present. Just one of those places you HAVE TO go anytime you’re in Cincinnati! Thanks, Jeff!
