The mushrooms were so overpowering that we couldn’t taste anything else after one bite. We were a tad disappointed.

This is our favorite place to celebrate. New jobs, anniversaries, or holidays. The staff will make your occasion feel extra special. The service is always excellent and the food is delicious. Will always recommend and come back.

I was very disappointed with this trip to Carlo & Johnny. Normally it was excellent, but his trip not so well. The service was good but not excellent as normal. My steak was cool, I normally get the bone in Filet cooked medium rare. It was rare and cool in the center and over all pretty cool. The restroom also needed servicing as the garbage was over flowing.

Great dinner. We bought a 16-month-old child with us and they did everything to make us comfortable and everybody else by giving us our room private dining room. The Spinalis steak was spectacular and our waiter, Cameron was right there whenever we needed him. A wonderful setting, a wonderful dining experience and a memorable evening.

My brother and his wife and son were in town from South Carolina and had never been to Carlo and Johnny's. They were very impressed and said it was the best steak they had ever eaten. The service, as usual, was excellent. Thanks for an enjoyable evening.

Dan, our server, was absolutely wonderful. He was extremely friendly. I felt like I was talking to someone I've known for years! He was very knowledgeable and quick to reccomend dishes based on what we told him we were looking for. The over all service from start to finish was 5 out of 5 stars. The atmosphere was very lovely. It was clean and cozy.

Chris was our server and did an outstanding job. Perfect attentiveness without being intrusive. The filets were perfect, we had a side of mushrooms that was great and the grilled shrimp was good. The grilled shrimp wasn't the best I've had but overall the food was outstanding. Also a nice bottle of Lemelson wine. Really a nice evening out. Highly recommended.

Service was as always impeccable. Gabriel was attentive without being cloying. Food was perfectly cooked. We were in dining room and the bar/music was hopping but our noise level was still great for conversation. Very impressed with the number of staff and their collaboration in checking in on us. Always love a Ruby meal!

It appears that Carlo and Johnny have been resting on the reputation of the Jeff Ruby brand. We had high expectations which sadly, the restaurant did not meet. The decor was very charming and we found the staff to be very accommodating, courteous and efficient. The food was very ordinary. Bone-in ribeye, 22 oz was flavorless, sea bass was over cooked and smelled a bit fishy,, mushrooms were excessively salty and were returned. Manager replaced them, but they were way over seasoned with Thyme. The manager was kind enough to take the mushrooms off the check. Overall a disappointing meal. We are accustomed to and don’t mind paying a hefty price for a good meal but this meal was not worth the price.
