We love Carlo & Johnny's! It is our go to place for all celebrations and just to enjoy great food. Service is excellent from valet, hostess and servers. I always get the filet. The filet plus lobster tail was awesome and a good value. I will be counting down to next visit.

It's been over a year since we experienced the joy of dining at Carlo & Johnny. Our group of 6 was ecstatic. Perfection from start to finish. Valet, outstanding. A warm welcome from the front of the house, wait staff from various stations all welcomed us warmly. Charlie Bledsoe and Kevin Lehman are managers that go above and beyond and take care of every detail to make sure our guest experience is exceptional and they check on us frequently throughout the evening. The joy of savoring our filet & lobster entrees cooked to perfect along with an array of almost every side dish allowed us to sate our appetites with leftovers for the day after. Of course we saved room for the delicious butter pie that melts in your mouth especially topped with a massive scoop of vanilla ice cream. Adrian rocked our service and what was better than the icing on the carrot cake? A fond farewell from the one and only Kate (best bartender ever). We will be back often! Thank you for a perfect evening.

The food was delicious as always and the service was very good. However, I think the ambiance has suffered some from the pandemic restrictions. Still, it was a very pleasant experience and we will return again. On the whole, I think the Ruby family has done an excellent job of providing a safe and enjoyable atmosphere to have a small celebration.

Beast steak in the city. All of Jeff Ruby's restaurants are excellent, but this is the best. Not only is the steak tremendous, the atmosphere is just right as well.

Food was good as usual and the service was the typical top notch you expect from a Jeff Ruby venue. You are made to feel as though your satisfaction is their top concern. Ambiance and setting were outstanding. High top tables are quite small for 2 quests, but acceptable. We enjoy our visits to all of Mr. Ruby's restuarants and plan to visit a different one next time.

Best service! not just at Carlo and Johnny but best service I’ve ever had. (And I have traveled around the world). The waiter Clay was outstanding. He made us laugh repeatedly. The food was amazing. Jacob was great too. Alway filling up glasses or removing dishes for us. Can’t wait to come back.

I cannot say enough. They never miss the mark, but they set a new bar this time. From the time we arrived, to being immediately seated, to receiving amazing service and a phenomenal meal...everything was PERFECT. If you haven’t, give it a try!

The Ruby experience is unlike any other. I've never enjoyed a better steak and the preparation is amazingly consistent each visit regardless of location. The ambience at Carlo and Johnny's is fantastic and the service is first rate. DO NOT SLEEP on the Butter Pie. If you don't save room you are cheating yourself!

We frequent Carlos & Johnny fairly often. Our experience Valentine’s evening was exceptional even for them. Our server, Ben, was outstanding. Attentive but not overbearing, kind, friendly and knowledgeable. Steaks were even better than usual. Wonderful dinner.

We have been there many times before. Very disappointed with the service- took 3 times to get my husband’s drink order correct and a manager had to bring it. Seems that many items that were once included are extra now which I understand but waiter could have been more forthcoming with some of the up charges. We were there for our anniversary and booked the reservation a year ago and we were tucked in a corner. Not our best experience for our special occasion and expensive restaurant!! Thanks

I have always been totally satisfied with my dining experience at any Jeff Ruby’s location. Overall, it was wonderful. This time there was one issue. Our server took way too long to return to our table so we could place our order. Everything else was fine.
