    We booked our reservation to take advantage of the Steak and Lobster dinner special that is going on through the end of February. It is such a pleasant way to start an evening when the Hostesses at the door are smiling and friendly and a manager, Brian, greets you as you walk in. All the staff seem to work hard to make you feel welcome. Our table was located near the bar, but we were far away enough that the bar noise level was not a problem. Our server, Sarah B. And her assistant Evan were very attentive. Our water was poured immediately and our drink order came out quickly and the bartender, Joe S. made our drinks exactly the way we asked. Bread was brought out with our cocktails and we were given plenty of time to enjoy before ordering. We were very impressed with the steak and Lobster special. Our 6 oz filet was perfectly seasoned and cooked and the 6 oz lobster tail was grilled, served with clarified butter and so tender! The plate was a composed plate and included some asparagus and mashed potatoes and a small Freddie salad. We thought that for $65, 12 oz of meat and seafood with salad and sides was a great value, especially at a high end steak house. Most of the high end restaurants only give you a small filet for that price without any side dishes. Overall, we thought the service was excellent, the food was delicious and we had a very enjoyable evening. We hope they will run that special again!

    We went for my bf’s 60th birthday. He had never been to Carlo and Johnny so I wanted to treat him to a nice dinner out. When I reserved a seating it said there were only high tops available so I went ahead and booked it. I left a side note that asked if a table were to become available we would like to be moved. To my surprise we were seated at a booth instead of a high top which made it much more of a nice experience. So thank you for that. Our server and the wait staff were super nice! Of course the appetizer (shrimp cocktail) was great as was the dinner itself. You can’t beat a Jeff Ruby steak. The lobster tail was done to perfection as well. Our server asked if we wanted a picture and was kind enough to do it. All in all it was a wonderful experience. My bf got a birthday dessert as well which was a nice touch. I have been coming to Jeff Ruby’s restaurants for many years and expect to continue to do so for many more years to come. Thank you again for such a awesome dining experience!

    We did have to wait quite a while for our bottle of wine/drinks and to order our food. All staff was nice and accommodating. Just busy I think. After we ordered, there were no delays. But we were also seated next to a very large party so the noise level was elevated and hard to hear our own conversation at times. Food was delicious. Service time and ambiance below their normal standard

    We took another couple with us. We took 3 hrs to really enjoy everything Rubys has to offer. Boy did We! We tried meatball, lobster bisque and crab cake. We also had their mega huge shrimp cocktail. To help celebrate the Bengals success we had everything that was Bengal theme from steaks to cakes we enjoyed our little tastebud celebration and just like the Bengals, Rubys did not disappoint. I must add I love their mushroom butter!!! Bengal theme desserts topped of the end of an incredible taste bud/football journey!

    We had a wonderful experience dining at Carlo and Johnny. We were there to celebrate my birthday and as Mr Ruby says, life. The food was amazing as was the staff beginning with our bartender, the manager (with his history of the home), our server Sarah (who was very efficient and attentive) and everyone else in between that attended us that evening. It was not just a dinner, but a complete dining experience. Completely amazing and I will be back. I only wish everyone had the chance and the means to experience it just once. Beautiful evening. Thank you! Cynthia Gertner
