We were celebrating a birthday and our server, Adam, did a great job making our evening special. We did go on a Sunday evening so they weren't too busy. The food was a little cool, but not enough to complain about. Overall we were satisfied and would recommend.

Carlos and Johnnys has always been a special place to dine. My husband and i went for out Anniversary and we were well taken care of by Chris. He has been in the restaurant industry for many years and knows how to treat people. I only have one regret and that is that i did not send my steak back as it was rare and not medium rare. My husband finished what I couldn’t. Every thing else we ordered was excellent. We are not ones to make a fuss about food, but i wish i would have asked.

My wife and I were celebrating out 30th wedding anniversary and visited with another couple. We've celebrated each anniversary at C&J for the past 10 years. As always, the food was outstanding. Our server, Jim Belmont, is the best. The entire staff is welcoming and very professional. Far and away our favorite restaurant!

This is my all time favorite dining experience. From the staff to the food to the building itself, there is something so unique about your dinner. I got the Cowboy ribeye for the first time and the flavor was unreal. I also highly recommend getting the cream corn while it is in season, and somehow try to save room for dessert because the butter pie is to die for. Shout out to Kirk, Leo, Brian, and one of the best GM's of all time Charlie B and all the others who always make us feel like family.

As always, the food and attentive service at C&J's was outstanding! Our server Chris recommended a great red wine value and took great care of us including a special birthday desert. All in all, a very enjoyable and memorable birthday celebration with the C&J staff.

It was absolutely deliciously! The only thing was they asked if it was a special occasion and I answered Anniversary when making reservation. When we arrived the hostess greeted us with Happy Anniversary, but after that it was never mentioned. It was our 52 which I understand is not a milestone but an acknowledgement would have been nice. Just an observation! Other than that it was wonderful!!

Love the atmosphere and food. We had a booth, which is a little quieter and more comfortable for me. Steak was perfection! Sides were good as always, and the desserts were lovely. They currently have a brown butter pie and a brownie and ice cream dish on the menu. If you like dark chocolate, pecans, and ice cream, then get the brownie dessert! Probably best to share it with someone unless that's all you get.

Charlie Bledsoe, General Manager is the reason we continue to come back for every special occasion. This past Saturday my sweetheart and I just wanted to celebrate each other, life in general and were very happy to do so dining at Carlo & Johnny's. The service was impeccable as always, raw bar always amazes- the tiger shrimp are the largest I've ever seen- coast to coast! The Collinsworth signature filet mignon can't be beat and the selection of wine pairings and bourbon continues to grow. Charlie even sent out a piece of the signature butter pie for dessert and I continue to promise myself I'm going to learn that recipe one of these days! We'll certainly continue to support our very favorite local Cincinnati restaurant. Thank you and your entire staff for always being so warm and welcoming, we feel like family every visit.

Everything was superb, the only complaint that I have was that the steak that I ordered was $70 and cooked at the wrong temperature. Rather than fire up a new one, they re-grilled the one that they had asked me to cut in half to determine if the temperature was correct. Wouldn’t have minded except for that it was $70. My husband was very upset as we only go out to dinner a few times a year and technically couldn’t even eat our meals at the same time. I kept telling him that I was pretty sure they’d try to make it up to us somehow but they didn’t.
