    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

    Barrel cut filet was very tough and fat content extremely high. My wife was very disappointed. Also my wife's Feddy had very little bacon. Hopefully next time the food will be what we expect.

    I chose to celebrate my birthday with my family at Carlo & Johnny’s given the experience we have had at The Precinct and at Jeff Ruby’s in Columbus. Our reservation was for 7:30 pm and we arrived right on time, on a weekday. The place is very nice, decorated with Movie memorabilia, the receptionist, not the kindest one we have seen but OK. Ordered some appetizers, wine, and a porterhouse and a cowboy as main. Timing was off from the appetizers, which arrived 8:30 pm, just for a soup and a salad. Meat arrived 9:20 pm, when we were not that really hungry anymore. What we did no like is that the meat was cold. While savory and well cooked, seems like it was resting for too long. basically cold. For two pieces of meat, above 20 ounces each, dry aged, serving at the right temp is basic expectation. We ordered tatter tots and mac & cheese as sides. Tatter tots were not good at all. Unfortunate, and quite disappointing.

    Food was slow to comeout. Ordered the recommended Chicken Parmesan it was so awful the chicken was so thin and burnt on one side. The Manger noticed it was moved away from in front of me. He ask if there was something wrong? Told him the issue. He asked if he could get me something else. He was told 2 shrimp with cocktail sauce. Didn't say sorry or anything came back with the shrimp and walked away. He should of offered the shrimp cocktail. Waiter gave us our bill said the took off the bad Chicken Parmesan. Still paid for the 2 shrimp at 16.00. Will never go back there. Will return to Jeff Ruby downtown location.

    The best management, staff, and comfort level of all the Jeff Ruby establishments! We go past his other establishments for this specific location. It's unlike anywhere else. Staff is very knowledgeable and attentive and you can tell the management cares about your experience. They make you feel like friends. Always the best.

    While food and service were excellent, I can't see paying the amount we had to pay for the minimal amount of food and drinks we had. Really expensive for the average person!
