Lovely atmosphere! It was my girlfriend’s and I’s 1 year anniversary and the meal was fabulous. I’ve had the pleasure of doing some fine dining in my days, and one of the things I love about it is the personal communication that is established between the server and ourselves. We had the training manager as our server and it was a busy night, so we didn’t get as much of that as we would have liked. Still a great guy. We will be back!

C&J is simply one of the very best restaurants in the entire tri-state area. Whether you talk about service (thank you Kyle, Shannon and Aria), Seafood raw bar (fresh, huge pieces or choose from the menu), salads (imagine 2 on the list served w/ bacon!), apps (from fried green tomatoes to raw bar selections and much in between, always great taste and large enough to share), sides (potatoes, greens, mushrooms, onions, just simply really good tasting compliments), and finally the entrees (see the menu - anything you choose will be served exactly as you request and the taste, serving size and cuts will be the very best you can find). Excellent service, taste and experience (which is why you go and enjoy). Finally, on V Day, C&J knows that ambiance is vital and so on the 14th they were not taking any group reservations but mainly 2 seat reservations and a very few 4 seat so the noise / atmosphere was perfect. Select an open slot and go! Thank you JR and C&J.

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!
