    Our table was not ready when we got there so we had to wait about 15mins, which was ok, but we did drive from Dayton and were surprised to wait after having reservations. We had a fantastic waiter and the food was excellent as always. The noise level was extremely loud this visit and we hadn’t experienced the noise being that bad before. It was difficult to hear each other at times.

She was very knowledgeable, helpful and went the extra mile to help us celebrate the wonderful news of our new baby girl. Looking forward to our next visit and once again receiving the Carlo & Johnny's experience.

    We had a wonderful evening at Carlo and Johnny in Montgomery on Saturday. What an amazing staff and menu they have! Our server Joe and assistant server Hogan were wonderful and so attentive and we enjoyed spending time learning about each other. We also had a great time meeting and getting to know the assistant general manager, Kevin, who is lovely and so engaging. The pre-dinner cocktails were to die for! The menu is extensive and we ordered the petite filet and the roasted branzino, both were fantastic. What a wonderful place to have a date night. This was one of the best experiences and meals we have had in Cincinnati! Thank you, Hogan, Joe, and Kevin!!

    The Jeff Ruby experience is something that everyone should experience and every business should strive to duplicate. Even though we could see and hear other customers my wife and I felt like were the only ones there and the most important people in the restaurant.

    The food was wonderful as always. They accommodated my gluten allergy and the server knew exactly what to do. They do not have a dedicated gluten free fryer so our server, Chris made sure anything like bacon and such was done in a separate pan. I so appreciate this. Also, I usually get cheesecake or crème brûlée for dessert but this time I got the sorbet and sherbet. I can’t believe I have never done this before. It was incredible. Great meal which is to be expected at a Ruby restaurant.

    Our experience was everything you expect from dining at Jeff Ruby's. The service was impeccable and the food was as good as it gets. Caro and Johnny recently updated the second floor, and we were able to dine there. They actually have some new cocktails that are only offered there. Highly recommend.
