Usually a very good experience. This is my favorite restaurant. My friend’s steak was overcooked and her husband’s chicken Parmesan wasn’t it’s usual best. They do not send food back ever. They don’t complain either. Mine and my husband’s steak was perfect.

Carlo & Johnny never disappoints. Other restaurants lessen the quality after a couple of years, but not this one ! The food and the service were outstanding. Everyone always goes the extra mile to be sure everything is just right!

The food was fantastic but i left feeling disappointed. The only reservation time available on open table was for 8:15. I called the restaurant to see if we could come earlier, even 30 minutes would have been wonderful. I was told that they were completely booked. Upon arrival, I was shocked and very disappointed to see that the main dining room was empty except for one table.

Service was outstanding. But don't get the Collingsworth. Which they say is their most popular dish. There was about 1 tablespoon of crab meat that came with the dish at $56. I would recommend just doing a petite filet by itself for $44. Really? $16 for a tablespoon of crab meat? The bread also was really hard. Mac and cheese was so-so. Brussel sprouts were great and so was the wedge salad.

Four of us celebrating my daughters wedding. The sides, mac-n-cheese, gratin, creamed spinach and brussel sprouts just seemed bland this time around. My porterhouse, while cooked perfectly, didn't seem well aged or particularly tender. It wasn't the best meal we have enjoyed at Jeff Ruby's. Service was spot on, drinks were well prepared, oysters were tasty.

This is a special occasion restaurant for us. The food and service are exceptional but a cost comes with that:) Well worth it every once in awhile. Our Server was fantastic although he did not ask us about celebrating any special occasions as I heard others do. I was celebrating my retirement:)

We go out every year to a different upscale steakhouse to try. For out last birthday outing we tried the precinct. It was so great we made it a point to try another Jeff Ruby’s house. It was an amazing experience and we will keep you in mind for any other special events we may have.

Carlo and Johnny’s exceeds my expectations every single time! The service is always incredible. The “guest first” pins on the server’s jackets does not go unnoticed. They are committed to making sure the guest has the best possible experience by delivering unmatched service. The food is always prepared exactly to my liking and tastes better and better each bite. I highly recommend dining at Carlo and Johnny because you will not find a better restaurant with the same great food and service you will receive here. I will definitely be dining again.

The steaks were a little tough and didn't have a lot seasoning on them. The shareable sides was a little smaller than expected. The service was wonderful. I was hoping for a better experience. We don't get to go out for dinner often because we have a chronically ill son and needs to have a nurse to care for him when we go anywhere. I read a lot of reviews of how wonderful the steaks are so I chose Carlo and Johnny's for our special night. Perhaps it was just an off night for us.

This is the second time we go there. I really was hoping to like it better than the first time. I did not. Maybe it’s just me, but I don’t think the steaks are work what they charge for them.

A friend gave us a gift card, we went knowing that the card wouldn't cover the meal and wine, but also knowing that it would be a more than worthwhile experience. It was. An experience. The ambiance is elegant, the food fabulous, and the wine list extensive. The service was on point. Even the car park valet was exceptional. We look forward to our next visit.

Went for our annual New Years Eve dinner. Service was super disappointing- the manager was more attentive than the actual server. We love it there, but this was two consecutive times where service wasn’t up to par. We will rethink our plans for next year.
