Greg was an amazing server. Awesome evening, definitely the best place to go for a special night out!
Wonderful service and exceptional steaks! The attention to details is incredible. Probably the best steaks in the country. The server's assistants and the server were attentive but yet respectful not to over hover over the table. As always the steak and the side dishes were delicious and cooked to perfection. Carlo and Johnny is a great place for a special occasion and the fact that the staff makes you feel like your group is special and truly appreciate you coming to the restaurant is a refreshing change and a high end restaurant. Thank you for the wonderful dinner!
Was looking for a local steak house for a business meal and found this gem. Highly recommended. Service was over the top.
Meal met expectations. Will be back.
Excellent night out for dinner. Reservation at 530pm, seated immediately. Wait staff attentive & took care of all of our needs., Dinner was prepared to perfection.
Steaks - taste beyond words, they are so good. If you go, you have to try the house mac-n-cheese, with six different cheeses. Excellent wine list, Excellent desserts.
The place is fantastic every time, best steak in the city hands down.
I can say there has not been one time I have EVER been disappointed dining at Carlo & Johnny. Food was amazing and staff were fantastic. One word - AWESOME.
5 stars every time I eat at Jeff Ruby's Carlo and Johnny. Always great service and outstanding food!!! My only wish is that they would add the waterfront macadamia nut ice cream pie to their menu!!!
The food was so delicious. Our waiter, Adam, was attentive but not overly so - which was perfect. He explained the menu options, made recommendations when asked and was just very pleasant. The room we ate in was lovely. There was a fire which made it feel even more cozy.
After dating my boyfriend for over a year we finally went on our first official date, and Carlo & Johnny’s was the restaurant of choice. We couldn’t be more pleased. Tyler, our waiters assistant was very attentive (as were everyone else that stoped by the table) but Dan or server really blew us out the water. He made helpful suggestions giving great detail in the menu. The food was so so good. My boyfriend got the Barrell Filet Mingon and I got the New York Strip steak. They were both amazing in their own ways. You HAVE to order the macaroni and cheese, it’s the best I’ve ever had the green beans were also perfectly seasoned. Complements to the chef for cooking everything perfectly. At some point the manager stopped by to ask how the meal was going but in a natural/organic way that wasn’t awkward. I will say that I could have skipped our desert and not have missed out. We got the cookies and cream ice cream cake, it was just good Dan let us know they make the ice cream in house and even make the “Oreo” like filling in house which was pretty cool but didn’t make us feel anymore strongly for the cake. One other piece we found odd is the fact that they charge $3 for valet I think they should be compensated and we gave them a great tip of course but spending $200 on a meal for two should include valet in my opinion. Altogether it was a perfect evening and the entire staff deserves to be recognized!
It is always our “ place to go.” Birthday, anniversary, Valentines, etc. Great food , and great service.
Our server Mike was fabulous! He was funny, attentive and knew the history of the restaurant. The food was incredible! Each staff member we encountered was so nice and professional! This was our first time here and I can’t wait to come back! Thank you for a great date night!!
loved our waiter; Chris B. He was very attentive and friendly, giving us a tour afterwards and explaining the history, ghost sighting, etc. Very cool. All the waiters were attentive, keeping water and drinks full. Only downside was a delayed wait in in food and drink initial delivery. Once we received the first they were very attentive.
The atmosphere was amazing! The food and wine delicious! The service was outstanding! Wonderful first impression!
We had the veal and it was very tough. Asparagus was not seasoned. We will not be back.
Excellent food and superb service! Carlo & Johnny lived up to the Ruby reputation as usual. This is a can’t miss special occasion spot for us and we look forward to the next time in Cincy.
Excellent food, wonderful and friendly staff. Well be back.
I actually got tired of hearing myself say, "Oh my gosh, this is so good." Wonderful experience, fabulous food. The service was great and staff so helpful. We were not too sure about a sauce on the sea bass, so they brought us a sample. We ended up dipping our bread in it.
Also, the adult beverages were modestly priced -- very surprising considering this is such an upscale restaurant.
I just can't say enough good things and I can't wait until we visit again.
Carlo & Johny's does not disappoint. We had a wonderful meal. The "Perfect Pair" special of an 8oz Filet and a petite Lobster tail for two was Awesome. Get there quick the special ends March 31st.
Service was outstanding across the board. Friendly, personal and perfectly timed. Our waiter provided good menu suggestions, too.
The atmosphere is a little speakeasy retro and fun — more casual than I expected. Plenty of hustle and bustle but we never felt rushed or crowded.
Our food was excellent but on the same level as other top-notch steakhouses. At this price point, you expect delicious, perfectly prepared food and that's what we got.
I’ve already spoken to Keegan, whom I assume, is a Manager. And he was very apologetic & is sending us a GC! But, the only thing that I forgot to mention, other than an off-colored and somewhat hard baked potato, was that the other “sides” that we ordered ... mashed potatoes & asparagus were very plain & bland, and for the amount of $ they charge for them, they were such a disappointment to the entire table.
Some meals were great, some just ok, and 1 poor. Not what we should have received or expected from a Jeff Ruby restaurant or for a $500-600 (including tip) meal!
Don, our waiter, was superb! We were celebrating our sons Engagement with his fiancé and our family, so, we didn’t let the sub-par dining experience ruin our evening!
I took my wife there for her birthday. It was nice and the food was good! We normally go to Tony’s and we will continue to do so because the prices are better and the service is better! I think Tony’s is the best bang for your buck!
Food was good, service was better! Good atmosphere / surroundings.
Dinner, 2 glasses of wine, & a beer...cost my Wife & I $238 (b/4 tip).
Ruby's restaurants are always special. Carlo & Johnny's is my favorite! The restored house is beautiful with many rooms and lots of windows. We had a table for 4 next to the fireplace on a cold evening. It was relaxing and enjoyable.
The wait staff took care of our every need and was attentive but subtle. The food was awesome and we had a wonderful celebration. There was never any feeling of being rushed or upselling of appetizers, sides or desserts. Highly recommend!
Service was impeccable! Our waiter Jeff was on point. Food was perfect! Our filet mignons were cooked perfectly, our dinner special was excellent! My husband had never had lobster before and was very impressed with their offering. Conrad our table attendant never allowed our water glass to reach 1/2 empty. What a phenomenal dinner date!
We Love all of Jeff Ruby's restaurants! Not one has ever disappointed...
They really go out of their way to make you feel taken care of. The food was outstanding, except we didn't care for the mac n cheese (even though it's supposed to be really good, it just wasn't my favorite). Steak cooked perfect. Jumbo shrimp were really good.
Best steaks period. We love Jeff Ruby’s restaurants and go any chance we get.
One of my FAVORITE places to dine. Everyone working there goes above and beyond to make your experience wonderful. Highly recommend!!!
Great food and service as always at Carlo & Johnny!
True fine dining in a beautiful setting. The wait staff is superb, the food is on point and the atmosphere is exactly what you would expect, when you go out for a memorable experience.
As always, excellent service and great food! I love this place!
Outstanding service with every part of the meal timed perfectly. We never felt rushed or hurried. We had the seafood tower (outstanding), the Freddie salad, and steak. I ordered the bone in filet which was cooked perfectly and tasted even better than my high expectations. It's pricey but well worth it.
Amazing as always. Service was spot on Jim always does a fantastic job!
The food was amazing, the waiter was the best. The tables were too close together, yet we could not hear conversations .
The prices are more than we would pay for anything other than a very special occasion. We had gift certf.
We had a fantastic server named Dan. He was very friendly and knowledgeable. The food was excellent and we loved the new menu changes.
We had 6 people in our party and everyone’s food was great.
Excellent very good service and food
Excellent! We go for a special night out. Service was fantastic. The food was delicious! We enjoy the ambiance and all the cool rooms. The bar is really nice but sort of small.
First experience at Carlo and Johnny and it was fantastic. The meal was superb and prepared to perfection. I received $200 in a gift card for Christmas. This was an exceptional gift.
