Our food was delicious and our waiter DON was excellent. We had a really good experience and enjoyed celebrating my son's birthday with you. The service was a
little slow but I realized with everything else the restuarants are experienceing that was a minor infraction. In overall, out experience was outstanding and we will be dining with you again in the future. My complements to you and your staff on our dining experience.

Everything was fantastic and a great value. The crab cake very well may have been the single greatest appetizer I've ever enjoyed.

Thank you!

Our meal was excellent with the filets cooked to perfection. Oysters were plump and ice cold. We all took Carrot cake with caramel sauce home for a treat the next day. Tables are spaced out now giving it a more private feel. A great evening!

Wife’s 50th birthday. Private room was great, service was great, food was great except my wife’s steak was almost well done, ordered medium. She never said anything to server because she wanted to eat with our kids & not wait for another to be cooked. Besides her steak it was great.

We were a party of 6 celebrating my wife and my 60th wedding anniversaries. The 2 hour experience was terrific from our greeting to our last bite. All aspects of our dinner was first class. The food, service, friendliness of staff, environment, and valet service was spot on. Thanks very much for a great dinner out, and we’ll be back soon.

A little pricey, but great food and fantastic service. Shortly after being seated we asked to be moved because of an a/c draft. Our waiter was super accommodating and the table we left, after sitting there less than 10 minutes, was immediately stripped, disinfected and reset. They are taking cleanliness very seriously.

The food and the service is always top notch. The steak was amazing as was the salad. We missed the summer special, but understand due to the circumstances things are a little different this year.

My fiancée and I were extremely pleased with Carlo and Johnny and were happy we decided to celebrate our anniversary. (and former date of our wedding that got moved due to COVID)

The service and food was exactly what I expect when I visit a Jeff Ruby restaurant, top notch and among the elite in Cincinnati. Thank you for making this night a special one.

First time with 'bar seating' when visiting Carlo & Johnny's. It was a high-top table near the raw bar prep area, so not as enjoyable as usual.
Food and service were excellent as always!

Great food and it didn’t feel weird with all the staff wearing masks. Didn’t feel like we had to compromise anything for social distancing. We had an amazing porterhouse steak and the mac n cheese was outstanding. Weird thing was that I got a rash when I got home! Not sure why, maybe allergic to something they added to the food????? Super weird
