We celebrated our anniversary here, and what a treat! We had the barrel cut filet, ribeye, truffle fries, mac & cheese (HEAVENLY) and asparagus. It all paired beautifully with a 2010 Bordeaux. The cheesecake was so smooth and creamy too. Between the food, the service, and my company - it was an incredible evening.

We go here for anniversary, birthdays, date night, and any other reason we can think of. Food is great, as is the service, and the feeling of being treated special.

The entire staff provided exceptional service! Warm welcome, friendly, willing to assist with every aspect our evening. Our Server took our pictures, printed and framed them on the spot! The staff even personally signed a Thank You For Your Service card and presented to my date! The added touch made it so personal to our experience. It was so special and the food is wonderful! A Valentine's dinner date I'll never forget! Thank you!

The service was second to none. They made us feel like the only people there. The steaks were incredible, and the wine was great too. We got the pork belly appetizer, which we highly recommended.

My wife and I celebrated an early Valentine's Day dinner. The atmosphere was classic Jeff Ruby in an intimate, warm dinning room. Dan was our waiter and he was spot on. Not hovering but we never felt ignored or neglected. The food was delicious. The salmon was a little tricky as it came out a bit past medium first and rare/mid rare the second time. Delicious, nonetheless. The steak was first class. I highly recommend the butter pie (chess pie for Southerners)! Will definitely go back!

I picked Carlo and Johnny as the restaurant where I was going to propose to my girlfriend. The waiter was Dan if I recall correctly and boy did he do an amazing job in helping me out with what I wanted to do. Everything went great! The food was nothing short of amazing, cooked perfectly in Jeff Ruby fashion. The service was outstanding and this continues to be our favorite restaurant. WE WILL BE BACK!!!

I've never had such a delicious meal in my life. The service was outstanding, I loved the ambiance, and every bite of steak melted in my mouth. They brought us a free slice of cheesecake for my birthday and oh my goodness. I was so full but I could've eaten an entire cheesecake. Can't wait to go back!
