We went for a late valentines dinner last night. Got the filet and lobster special. Started with shrimp cocktail and ended up taking home dessert. Also had their augratin potatoes as a side. Everything was cooked perfectly and the service was impeccable. This is my favorite restaurant in the city!

I'm a big fan of Ruby's downtown and havn't been here in a long while. Now I remember why. Although it's a good dining experience, it doesn't rise to the level of Jeff Ruby's downtown. We had a steak misfire which was promptly corrected, my mashed potatoes were barely warm, the grilled Asparagus was overcooked, the green beans were very al dente, the salads were great, and the service was enjoyable, but for the tab and time spent, it just didn't knock my socks off. We will stick with Ruby's where the experience and food is worth every dime. I feel bad basically saying meh, but meh.

The food was excellent and the service outstanding. The only downer for the evening was that a \one of the wait staff dumped a load of dirty dishes as we were leaving. The result was that my wife could not get up until they cleaned the area and the contents of one of the dishes went all over the leg of my dress slacks. Apologies and cleanup followed. I was surprised that no one offered to pay for the cleaning of my slacks or anything. They inquired if myself and wife were all right and that was it.

was seated near the bar close to the fish tank. enjoyed the scenery. Everything was very good.
Time before had a server that did not seem to want to be there but this time around everyone went above and beyond.

Lovely atmosphere! It was my girlfriend’s and I’s 1 year anniversary and the meal was fabulous. I’ve had the pleasure of doing some fine dining in my days, and one of the things I love about it is the personal communication that is established between the server and ourselves. We had the training manager as our server and it was a busy night, so we didn’t get as much of that as we would have liked. Still a great guy. We will be back!

C&J is simply one of the very best restaurants in the entire tri-state area. Whether you talk about service (thank you Kyle, Shannon and Aria), Seafood raw bar (fresh, huge pieces or choose from the menu), salads (imagine 2 on the list served w/ bacon!), apps (from fried green tomatoes to raw bar selections and much in between, always great taste and large enough to share), sides (potatoes, greens, mushrooms, onions, just simply really good tasting compliments), and finally the entrees (see the menu - anything you choose will be served exactly as you request and the taste, serving size and cuts will be the very best you can find). Excellent service, taste and experience (which is why you go and enjoy). Finally, on V Day, C&J knows that ambiance is vital and so on the 14th they were not taking any group reservations but mainly 2 seat reservations and a very few 4 seat so the noise / atmosphere was perfect. Select an open slot and go! Thank you JR and C&J.

My husband and I used to live in Kansas City, MO, and we honestly didn’t think the steak in Cincinnati could compare. I am pleased to say that we were wrong! This was the BEST meal that we have EVER eaten anywhere! Our server, Dan, was so attentive and personable. He made us feel welcome and made sure we were satisfied. The ambiance here is romantic, and we loved learning about the history of this building! This is absolutely our new favorite restaurant. Try the house made ice cream after dinner...to fill in the cracks. ;)
