    Came here for my birthday and, as always, never disappointed. Food was incredible. Evan and Mike gave us excellent service. Very attentive and quick. Only areas of critique were the hostess and valet. They didn't do anything wrong, but its just not the same as it use to be. Valet was quick but didn't open door for the lady. Again, not a big deal. Overall still one of my favorite restaurants.

    Our server Sarah was great as well as all support staff. My mom has dietary restrictions and they made her food without compromise and she loved it. My husband and I visit a few times a year and this dinner we also took my aunt and uncle for a bigger family meal. Food is always amazing!!!

    We had two servers that spent more time talking to one another and socializing with their managers that we couldn't leave until later than what we expected. We were never given a drink menu and had to look online to order them. We couldn't order them until after our food was brought because the servers rarely stopped to check on us.

    One of the best dining experiences I have ever had. Only thing was not above my standards was the fries we ordered came out cold but nothing is perfect and that’s LITERALLY the only thing was not exceptional. Everyone who came to our table was so polite, and helpful in making our meal and experience great. 5/5 by far

    Server was new and inexperienced with nobody helping them. Not acceptable at this caliber of dinning. Drink service slow, $80 filet was ordered rare plus but served practically raw, manager took steak and re-heated then comped us most our oysters which was a nice gesture. I’ve dinned at Ruby’s establishments for years and this was one of the most underwhelming experiences. Not that it was horrible but when spending $500 for two people to dine , excellence is the bar.

    We had an absolutely wonderful time celebrating my Dad's 75th birthday. Our service provided by James and Jake was excellent. They truly went out of their way to make this a memorable dinner for my family. Everyone was always making sure every need was met and our drinks never went empty! Management even stopped by and wished my Dad not only a happy birthday but thanked him for his military service. The room we sat in "Celebrity" I believe, was quiet which we greatly appreciated given my Dad's poor hearing. This will certainly NOT be our our last time at Carlo and Johnny! Thanks again and we can't wait till next time!!

    Having lived in San Francisco and London, I’m not averse to paying a lot for great food. The problem is, this isn’t great food. I’ve had much better steak for much less money. In fact, I’ve cooked better steak at home from my local butcher (when I lived somewhere that had one). Service is great and the room we were in is nice.

    Jeff Ruby's Carlo and Johnny is truly an outstanding restaurant. I love the ambiance; the outstanding, well-groomed staff; the outstanding quality of food. As an appetizer, I had the Wagyu Meatball; outstanding. For dinner, I had Steak Diane; outstanding, from the quality of meat, the preparation and the sauce. I have given a lot of recommendations this year for Cincinnati and West Chester restaurants. But Carlo and Johnny restaurant is now on top of my list. There should be an outstanding+ rating. I also thank my server Greg for his recommendations, his service, the kindness he showed me, and his overall style.

    This was a horrible experience. Wait staff was admittedly making things up about the item on the menu, I had a rancid oyster, the raw bar was awful, the band was way too loud and off key. It was an all-around bad experience, not what we would expect from a Jeff Ruby restaurant

    Food was terrific- shrimp cocktail, salads, ribeyes, creamed spinach, mac’n cheese, wines - all excellent. Bread was so-so. But the only real downer was no baked potato on the menu. The service from Alex and Robbie was outstanding. And the ambience and decor here are wonderful. We love live music and were looking forward to it, but the band that night was just not good, so we left earlier than planned. But overall, a lovely experience. Will definitely be back when baked potatoes and good music are on the menu!

    Prices way too high. Crab bisque hardly any crab in. I had steak and lobster. The lobster was so salty could not eat it except for couple bites. Told waiter easy in steak spices. Still too much. I told waiter I could not eat the lobster because of the salt. Didn’t say anything. So 3/4 of a 12 oz lobster tail got thrown away. $119.00. We were there with $300.00 gift card given to us by the Precinct because of a really bad experience down there. We felt that the food has taken a nose dive. For the prices food should be better.
