    Our experience was very underwhelming. The food is good but not worthy of the price and upcharges for everything (garlic butter on your steak for 5$?).

    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.

    Our dining experience was incredible, from the walk in the door, till we left. Our server, Kirk, could not have been more helpful or more fun. He gave suggestions for dinner and dessert, and helped us celebrate our first anniversary. He clued us in to the history of the building and the origins of the name Carlo and Johnny. We loved every minute and will definitely be back!

    Service and overall experience is top notch! We were a little bummed with the quality of our steaks last night BUT that is highly unusual for the restaurant. We didn’t want to complain and make our other guest wait, but 2/6 steaks weren’t great. We probably should have said something because I’m sure they would have fixed it, but again; we didn’t want the others to wait on us to eat. Will definitely be back, just think we caught on bad night. Kids steaks were amazing!

    Carlo and Jonny is our new favorite restaurant. We got tired of jags, embers, and Tony’s….. The waiters at Carlo and Jonny are professional and polished while still being personable. Paul was our waiter during our last visit and he was fabulous!!! All of our food was hot, fresh, and correct. The ambience was great. The service was impeccable. We will request Paul next time, but, all the waiters there have been wonderful. Carlo and Jonny serves the best filet around. It’s delicious. Thank you Carlo and Jonny for the wonderful experience once again!!

Paul was our waiter and he was knowledgeable about the food and very friendly with our children allowing them to also enjoy the experience of the restaurant. Definitely our favorite place to celebrate big moments in the future.

    Jak and the other two staff members were excellent! (The young lady had a beautiful laugh.) They were all knowledgeable, courteous, personable, and efficient! The food was excellent. We were there for my daughter’s 18th birthday and I alerted the staff to my daughter having anxiety and not wanting a lot of attention so they celebrated her birthday very politely with a small dessert with a candle and no other attention. We truly appreciated that!

    Took my sister for her bday & we sat in a booth in the bar. Great atmosphere & Robby our server was fantastic. He was knowledgeable and warm. Had half salads to start which were still quite large. The filet was melt in your mouth delicious. The fingerling potatoes are scrumptious. Word of warning if you get the carrots, they are very spicy. I enjoyed then. Had the carrot cake for dessert and the slice is big enough for 4 people. Highly recommend.
