The food was excellent as always, however the service was not up to par with my past Jeff Ruby’s experiences. It was disappointing

Overall another great experience at a Jeff ruby restaurant.

The prices however are WAY up, seemed almost double what we typically pay. Service was outstanding and great food but tough to justify the final cost.

Update:

Really appreciate Casey reaching out after my review. While the prices are up the service and customer care are still incredible. Thanks Casey appreciate you contacting me.

First time here and attended for our 32nd Anniversary. Our server, Chrisopher, was just outstanding. Very at tentative but yet wasn't overbearing. Food was out of this world with both my wife's and I steak cooked to perfection. The history of the building that was told to us by Chrisopher was quite interesting. Especially when you find out where the name Carlo & Johnny came from.

Can't say enough about our Server, Christopher. His jovial and pleasant attitude made our evening! Anybody can take orders and deliver food, but it takes a special kind of person to be a true Server. Christopher deserves the Kudos! Ask for him!

We only go here for special occasions about twice a year. Our last few visits were just okay. This visit was exceptional. Our waiter Dave made our night. Next time we come we will asked to be seated in his section. Dave was by far the best waiter we have ever had.

Love the entire meal. Not sure how come you don’t have a coat check? When you pay $70 for a main dish you want to walk in without caring your coat!

Amazing ambiance and the famous Jeff Ruby Steak, which is delicious. This was the first time I've experienced slow service at this or any Ruby restaurant, but it was Monday night and while it took 15+ min for our wine and bread course, after that it picked up and was excellent as usual. Only other negative feedback, the cacio e pepe was so peppery it was almost inedible. I love pepper--I got the bourbon peppercorn sauce for my steak even--but the cacio e pepe was unpleasant and completely blew my pallette.

I was looking forward to seeing the place and did a quick tour with the hostess. Love the whole atmosphere. Would like to eat in one of the other rooms next time.
As far as the food, it doesn't always live up to or match the ambience of a place's history, etc. However, the food was amazing. One of the best meals i have ever had, me and my son.
We live in Pittsburgh and were there for hockey, but next time we are ever in town, we will be coming back.
5 stars finally warranted in today's society!

Carlo and Johnny’s was incredible! Conrad was a fantastic server!! He was so personal and made sure our dining experience was perfect. The food was unmatched. Best steak I have ever had! Also, highly recommend the creamed spinach and creme brûlée. The atmosphere was incredibly classy and from start to finish we felt like royalty. Can’t wait to return!!
