We were surprised…very average food in a higher end restaurant. Soup was too salty. Salmon lacked flavor. Filet was ok but had better

Consistently excellent food and service. Ambient noise level can occasionally become annoying as a few oblivious patrons become loud.

There simply is nothing like a Jeff Ruby steak, especially with the Collinsworth topping!!

It was a great place, the entrance area could be a little lighter and the bathrooms need a renovation but other than that everything else was fantastic. I’d also like to say that for the prices on the menu I’d expect a food to come with at least one free side. We had a blast, highly recommend this place for your special occasions.

We love this place and the staff is always tremendous. About once every 2-3 months, we have dinner at Carlo & Johnny's, to celebrate a special occasion. It never fails to deliver and we absolutely love it... Thanks for another wonderful experience!

Reserved a special table in March for June and was told when we got to the restaurant that it was not available. We were seated in another room that was terribly noisey. My husband checked and noted that tables were available in the room we wanted. We asked if we could get a table near the one we asked for and they were able to accommdated us.

It was amazing as always!
I typically get the petite filet, but went with the sea bass. It was phenomenal and I found my new favorite dish!

Wonderful dining experience and the food was second to none. All food was presented well and was fantastic. I had the Cowboy ribeye and my wife had the Collinsworth filet. The best steak I have ever had. The staff went above and beyond to make us feel welcome and enjoy our dining experience. Well done Carlo and Johnny’s staff!

Not the same as previous visits. Wasn’t offered raw bar we had to ask if they still had it., but crab legs were water logged not firm. Sat us at the smallest table they had across from the bar so hard to eat and people were hovering over us. Seemed like they catered to regulars and who they seemed important. Very expensive for the experience.

Outstanding evening for our anniversary celebration. The food was excellent....but it was overshadowed by the excellent service of our waiter, Don. It's one of the few fine restaurants left... They do it ALL right.

I had my daughters 20th birthday dinner (party of 8) and could not have gone better. Our server Chris did an excellent job with food allergies and made sure the night was successful. My 85 year old mother was worried about covid and she felt fine once we were there. My daughter said it was the best steak and creme brûlée she has ever had!

There were three couples celebrating three anniversaries. The six of us were squeezed into a table for four, making our dinner somewhat uncomfortable.
The lighting was so poor that we all had to use our cell phone flashlights to read the menu.
All of the food was excellent and we were surprised to have a complementary anniversary dessert.

Wine selection is amazing, steak and salad always good and side selection, which there were a couple more healthy options. Maybe creamed spinach, could be not creamed?
