It was really nice to be able to still celebrate and feel safe during this crazy time that we are all experiencing. They did a great job with helping everyone feel comfortable & relaxed. Working in the restaurant business myself I know the next couple weeks is uncertain for all of us & I just wanted to say thank you for always being so fabulous!

As usual. the service was impeccable and the food was truly excellent. Back in the Stone Age, we used to go to the Maissonette for special occasions, and Carlo & Johnny is now the replacement for that. Anyone who dined at the Maissonette knows what a high standard that was, so when I say the Carlo & Johnny reminds us of that time, it's high praise indeed.

The surf and turf special is our absolute favorite. Paired with their scalloped potatoes and an incredible butter pie ala mode, it doesn't get any better

My husband and I spent a wonderful evening at our favorite restaurant even though we live 50 minutes away. We had noticed your special of Filet Mignon and Lobster for $99 for 2 and just couldn’t pass it up. Boy, we were not disappointed! Fantastic meal!! Thank you again for a perfect meal and experience!

Came for birthday and extra nice happening was the lobster and filet special. Our server, Aaron was AWESOME! And Eva at reception was very accommodating, helping us to get in a little earlier. Seating was perfect and the extra special birthday dessert was beautiful as well as delicious!! Thank you for a wonderful evening! Oh, and the lavender towels!! Over the top luxurious!! ☺️

The service was good overall, however, sometimes felt that we were being rushed along. The quality of the food was better than average but expected more based on the prices.

The experience, service, food were all wonderful, as always. The prices however are on the higher end and we can only afford to visit maybe once per year. We ordered the 2 for $99 special, added a salad, the collinsworth topping on one + a side of mushrooms for the steak, each had 2 glasses of wine and dessert and we spent close to $300 (tip included).

Great ambiance, great food and over the top service by Adam. So much more enjoyable than Ruby’s Precinct location where dinners are crammed in like sardines and the place seems dark and dirty and loud. At C & J we were seated in comfortable leather chairs by the fireplace and the window look it out on the garden. Dinner was the usual Ruby excellent expectation in an I rushed manner. This is our new favorite Ruby location!

We thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience at Carlo & Johnny. While we, and particularly our son and daughter in law, do not often dine in such fine establishments, we did feel comfortable and the staff was very accommodating and not at all condescending as we have often experienced in such situations.

This place is dtop-dead gorgeous. The service is good and the food is good. I wasn't blown away from the NY strip I had, but it still tasted great. You're paying for the experience.more than anything else , in my humble opinion. I would definitely go back and try another item on the menu

Great service and atmosphere. Ordered The Hatchet, medium rare & the outside of the steak was way too burnt. The bark over took the flavor of the steak unfortunately. 8th visit and first issue with the food.

Always enjoy our time at CJs. Valet guys are great, food and service nice, many of the staff know me by face. Too busy for a Thursday - kitchen and staff weren't prepared for it. They did what they could to keep up. Thanks for a nice birthday dinner!

We had the best time at dinner on Saturday! Dan was our server and he was outstanding! He was so nice and friendly, we had our children with us and he made the dinning experience fun for them. He also was very knowledgeable and helpful with the wine list. 5 stars for Dan and his service crew! We will return sooner than later!
