The food was awesome. We were placed at a hightop table. I’m not sure if that meant we don’t get an actual waiter as opposed to a couple of bartenders who are serving us?
But, for the situation they did their best. I would have ordered more drinks if the servers came around more often. So if you get a “high top” table, you might not get actual waiters.

The salmon was a nice change from the steak. Shrimp and cocktail sauce was incredible. Always the perfect experience for taking a business associate or family. The service was top notch. Will definitely be back.
Not sure I can recommend that they do anything better.

We splurged at Carlo & Johnny for a graduation celebration. We picked there because we had such a great experience several years prior. This is not a place we go to regularly because of the prices. We arrived on time and were promptly seated in a private section of the restaurant. The service was outstanding and the food was very good. However, everybody's steak was undercooked by one level. "Medium", which is supposed to have a hot pink center, came out Medium Rare. "Medium Well", which is supposed to have a mostly brown center, came out Medium. It wasn't awful, but not what I would have preferred to eat for a $65 steak. Otherwise, everything else was fantastic.

Food and service were outstanding. We were seated in the front of the restaurant closer to the bar so it was a bit louder than usual. Food was cooked perfectly and tasted great. Only gripe would be that we had 3 different girls waiting on us and they all came by and asked us the same questions about refills, and how everything was. Not a big deal though. Staff was all friendly and there was plenty of parking.

Any Jeff Ruby's establishment is a must for celebrations. My wife and I included our two young sons for my birthday dinner and they were treated like gentlemen. Our server Greg was also able to accommodate a special request or two in order to make the boys' experience top notch. Best steaks ever!

Carlo and Johnny provides very professional and conscientious service. The servers are kind, accommodating, and welcoming. The food was good but the quality was not comparable to the price. My husband’s Cowboy Steak was quite burnt when he asked for it to be medium rare. But all and all, I would return. The ambiance and exceptional service outweighs the one time disappointment in the food.

Dan was our server, they held our table of 6 in a private room and it was absolutely perfect. Dan was very personable, he offered great information on liquor/wine and cocktail selections. He was also very great with a young child and made them present in the conversations when asking what they would like. Overall this was one of my favorite experiences at Carlo & Johnny’s, and I will to this day suggest coming back for the best service in Cincinnati!!
