We had a fantastic dinner celebrating my wife’s 39th birthday. Service was fabulous as was every aspect of our experience. Don exceeded our expectations.
Terrific food and exquisite service! Great restaurant!
Superb service and a most knowledgeable sommelier.
Great food and great service. You can't go wrong with anything you order. Enjoy!!
Terrific as always. Charlie and his staff were tremendous. Zac did a tremendous job as our lead server. There really isn't an equal to Carlo and Johnny or any Jeff Ruby restaurant!
Carlo and Johnny is a wonderful place for drinks, food and entertainment. The whole experience is fantastic. The service is like none other. We had a wonderful server who was engaging and you can tell really loves his job. GO!!! GO!!! GO!!
By far the best of Ruby’s restaurants in the area.....management is second to none and the bartenders are top flight....worth the drive from downtown for a completely satisfying experience..
We were celebrating three special occasions—And the staff went out of their way to make us feel extra special! Not only did we get our own private room for a party of six, but also they gave each of the three couples a free dessert, to go, on the house! Extremely friendly, efficient, impeccable service!
Celebrating graduation. Waitress Allison was awesome!
Always an excellent time. Best steaks and service in Cincinnati.
Excellent food and service, well done by all! Keep up the good work!
This is a nice place for a special occasion dinner however the prices prohibit me coming more than once a year or less.
We got seated next to the bus boys station because we are older women. We had reservations. The waiter wasn’t very friendly. The bus boy was great. The $10.00 drinks were small. The steak was too salty and I like salty food. The potato was soggy. We usually go to The Precinct, but thought we’d try your restaurant. We were always treated well at The Precinct. We’re retired teachers and can’t easily afford nights out often. Disappointing evening.
Every morsel was fantastic. From the first taste is bread and butter, the salad, the sides, the steaks and dessert. Each taste was one to behold. The service was more than attentive, courteous and kind.
Always outstanding! Staff is top-notch, attentive, friendly, and well prepared. Food is amazing, not a huge list but don't need to when everything is so delicious! Love the variation of decor and style, lot of neat Cincinnati heritage decor too.
Absolute bomb. Of course it’s a costly place but very well worth the money. Excellent food, perfect service, and most of all a very cozy ambiance.
My wife and I dined at Carlos and Johnny's Saturday April 14th for our anniversary. Everything was outstanding. I had the steak Collingsworth and she had the seabass. Both were fantastic! the service was the best. If you are up for desert try the butter pie or cheesecake and can not go wrong with either. They were great. I cannot thank the staff enough for making our dinner special. Yhanks again!
My porterhouse was just OK, for the price. The other three people with me really liked their filets, though.
We celebrated our 30th anniversary at Carlo & Johnny Friday night and had a wonderful experience! The food, drink and service was over the top. We had a great evening! Highly recommend!!! Thank You!!
It was a great fine dining experience
Food and service was great, as always. The table next to us was loud and rowdy but everything else was good
Excellent as usual. My customers always love dinner at a Jeff Ruby restaurant.
Our waiter Kyle was excellent he was very helpful and friendly. Also very knowledgeable with the wine list.
Pricey, but you knew that before you went. Food was oh so good, and shareable portions were just that. Largest oysters I've ever seen! I'd go again in a heartbeat.
A++++ once again everything about the meal was amazing!!!!
Always great food, atmosphere
Great wine selected for us
Got d time
Impeccable service and delicious food!
Perfect as always!
Always a great experience at CJs. The valet group is always friendly; particularly after you have been there a few times and they get to recognize you. The waiter (Dan) was one of the best we've had there. They knew our previous preferences, and even though it wasn't on the menu, they had the tomato soup and creamed corn we like made special for us. Manager was a little more visible than usual and had a friendly conversation with us. Younger guy. Always appreciate the service, food, and atmosphere. The table was one of the best we sat at in our 20+ times right next to the fireplace in the back room past the bathrooms. Not that we ever have a bad experience, but this is one of the best. Definitely have the macaroni & cheese and ask for the habanero tomato soup. Delicious.
Our server was very knowledgeable about their menu and explained how the menu you was laid out. The steaks we're cooked perfectly and we're delicious. My husband and I will definitely visit again.
We love everything about Carlo & Johnny. Everything is always perfect when we go.
Outstanding steaks, delicious veggies, wonderful dessert, fast, courteous service. Always a pleasure.
The food was impecable, service was 2nd to none,
Outstanding food and service! Highly recommend. From the awesome steaks, to the great oysters and crab. Cocktails are first rate. We are regulars for special occasions!!!
The service at Carlo and Johnny's was what you would expect from any higher end restaurant. However, the server (Kyle) was very personable, friendly, and knowledgeable. The food itself was somewhat subpar (in comparison to Jeff Ruby's downtown). The lobster was incredible, but the steak was mediocre. Overall, the quality and service were enough to bring me back. I would rate it 4/5 stars.
Jim was an amazing server! We had a fantastic meal and will certainly return soon for more! The live band playing set a lively and fun tone for our dinner, which was prepared wonderfully! The only downside was the succotash
Everything was good until we found a hair in our food. Not just any hair, but a public hair. They did take it off our bill and gave us a new one plus free desert but to tell you the truth I did not trust eating it. Not coming back.
Outstanding all-around experience. And probably the best filet I’ve ever had.
Superb service. I can’t say enough about how perfectly attentive the servers were. Somehow the valet knew which was my car and delivered it even before we asked.
A very nice evening. Food was very very good though I preferred their earlier preparation for the sea bass.
As always, fabulous food and great service. Recommend the Collinsworth and also everything on the raw bar.
