As usual C & J is an unusual and unique place to eat and enjoy a date night or special occasion (anniversary). Scallops were great however my wife's steak was over cooked (asked for medium well and it came well done with a slight burned taste). The correct thing to do (she didn't) is tell the server and better yet say what the inside should look like.

The food service was slower than expected. The food was good,, but just warm as thought it was plated and then sat for a little while. Love the ambiance and seating. Was a perfect set-up for our group!

My wife an I celebrated her birthday and were looking for a quality experience. The staff and restaurant did not disappoint! We had a nice table in a cozy room with great atmosphere. Our server Dan not only did a great job navigating us through the menu, but took time to engage in pleasant conversation and made us feel important and comfortable. All in all our experience was most enjoyable and will highly consider returning for other options on the menu!!

Good apps and sides, but mediocre steak. Ribeye had such heavy char that it detracted from the flavor. Wife’s NY Strip was amazing. Bar noise and music filtered into the restaurant sand was somewhat annoying. Nothing like enjoying a 70 dollar steak with Kool and the Gang “Celebration” blaring from the bar area. Service was awesome and food was good otherwise.

Service is always outstanding. We had the steak and lobster for two. We ordered our steak medium rare+ and it came out medium+ but still delicious. Next time I will simply go with medium rare.

All in all a great meal.

I always enjoy visiting any of the Jeff Ruby’s locations, and Carlo and Johnny did not disappoint. Love the unique building, and we had great service. The food, as always, was incredible.

Mr. Ruby knows how to cook a steak...well his team does I should say. We had the fabulous Steak and Lobster special for $49.95 which is an amazing special for an amazing meal! I've never been to any of their restaurants where I didn't have a great meal. If you've never been, you must treat yourself! #YUM!

We were celebrating the 44th Anniversary of our first date. Perfect setting to do so. Food was prepared exactly as we ordered. Our Server was spectacular...sensed how much space to give us, and when to return to meet our needs. Décor was interesting, and warm. Great Evening!

Our seating was not at a high table, but in a very luxurious booth. Very nice and unexpected.
We had outstanding/exceptional service from "Ashley" our server. She is the quintessential server.

This was our second time to Carlo & Johnny. I almost hesitated going back, because I didn't think it could be as good as it was the first time we went. But, it was even better than we remembered! The wait staff is right there...checking on you constantly (but not intrusively) -- they just stroll by and look sideways...I love that they kept our water glasses full, and the bread kept coming! Food was prepared to perfection, and drinks (beer and margarita) were great!

We have been to Carlo Johnny dozens of times. 99% of the time, the service is impeccable. Unfortunately, this time was the exception. The waiter took forever to even take our drink order. We actually had to ask another waiter to find ours to finish taking our drink orders. He walked away before we were done speaking. Also very slow to come back for our food order. The food was still excellent as always.

Brought 2 friends who had never been. They said it was awesome and they were so full they couldn’t move. I mentioned my bd was 7/26 n they still brought me a dessert. Chris #1 was fab. Always consistent, stellar food and service @ any Jeff Ruby restaurant.

One of the best steaks in the area. The Ambiance is perfect if you are with a significant other. The service was fantastic and our waiter knew the ins and outs of the menu. He suggested a great topper for our steaks (collinsworth) which did not disappoint. While it is expensive you get what you pay for and this was definitely worth the price ten fold!

This was our first anniversary, and our waiter, Gabriel and his assistant, Nate, made our evening very special. Our food was very good but a little on the salty side.
