Carlo & Johnny

My wife and I celebrated our 35th anniversary over a fabulous dinner. Also had an awesome dessert. Chocolate cake with raspberry cream cheese icing and fresh raspberries.
Everyone there was so friendly and awesome. We celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary and Chris was so sweet he brought us out an anniversary dessert. We can’t wait to come back. The food was excellent!
We went for a graduation dinner for my daughter. Excellent in every way.
Very nice restaurant. The food was excellent. The decor is beautiful and unique. The atmosphere pleasant for romantic dinner or evening with friends. High quality overall.
Their steaks are just not worth $60+. I had the steak collinsworth (medium rare) and really needed a sharper knife to cut through it. Kinda disappointed. Service was great. Don provided excellent service.
Excellent steak restaurant in a really cool former mansion. Excellent ambiance, very different. Steaks were juicy and flavorful, but be aware if you go, this will be a very expensive dinner. Excellent wine selection, but again, per bottle price was very high. We were there to celebrate our son’s college graduation. Because of the high cost, this is a restaurant for a very, very special celebration.
Excellent food. Steaks were top notch! For me personally, the crab cake was the highlight, and literally made to order! Server Adam provided amazing service. There’s nothing like it around Cincinnati. We were given a complimentary dessert for our anniversary. A+
My filet was great, cooked exactly how as I requested, but my husband ordered the Waygu filet recommended by our server, Dan, and that was a totally different story. He ordered medium and it was easily well done. We might normally have asked for it to be corrected, but because of the long amounts of time that Dan would spend talking to other tables, we were concerned it would take too long. Maybe the kitchen is still learning to prepare this steak as we were told it is a recent addition to the menu or maybe it was just the wrong steak, either way, we should have spoken up because of the cost.
Also, we were asked if we were celebrating anything upon being seated, and because we said yes we were brought (after a 15-20 minute wait after our plates had been cleared) a stale canoli. It was a nice surprise...until we noticed we were charged for it. I would have preferred to order a dessert of my choice if I was going to pay for it.
The experience at the bar was great though, quick, efficient, and the drinks were good. The bartenders were awesome, and the hostess got us seated about 15 minutes before our reservation time which was great!
Outstanding service and food. We loved the mussels appetizer! The scallops and steak were delicious. Even the bread and truffle butter were great! Lovely evening out.
Food was delicious and the servers allowed us to set the pace for dinner. Excellent!
I always brag on this place, and this time was no exception. Dan was a fantastic waiter and honestly made the night that much better. We had a great time and the food was absolutely perfect. I can’t wait for our next visit!
Good experience as always.
Excellent food and service. Highly recommended any of the steaks and their macaroni and cheese.
This was the 3rd year in a row celebrating my birthday there. No reason why I wont be back next year.
Our visit for son’s Birthday was better than perfect!
My family's favorite. the staff is incredible because that is the only way Charlie would run a fine restaurant. Steaks, raw bar and sides are first class. Butter pie is a must for all to try.
A real special evening for us every time we dine there.
Second time I’ve been to Carlos and Johnny’s and the service was subpar. Steve the waiter was very inattentive. Said he was unable to put our order in due to someone picking up his book. Had to ask for menus, the manager refilled our drinks and cleared our table. The years I’ve been going to a Ruby’s you come to expect a certain service while dining there, this experience fell quite short.
Mother’s Day dinner
The food was amazing! My husband ordered the French onion soup and we highly recommend you try it! Their coffe is also amazing! Our waiter Chris was a pro! The restaurant used to be a private home and it’s 170 years old! Beautiful! I would recommend Carlo and Johnny’s to my friends and family ❤️
Excellent food and service!
Best shrimp cocktail and crab cakes. Could use some other Chardonnay choices.
Mother’s Day brunch was awesome! The menu selection was very much worth it! The service was top notch!
Carlo and Johnny's is a wonderful experience with superb food.
Best Steakhouse in town! Service and experience were great and would recommend to anyone for a great dinner!
Never a bad meal. The service is impeccable and they go above and beyond to make celebratory meals an evening to remember.
We really enjoy the quiet intimacy of Carlos and Johnny's. The food is of high quality.
The wait staff are wonderful.
We wish you could go back to a dress code. People coming in with jeans, etc.. greatly distract from the ambience.
My wife and I were celebrating our 29th anniversary and we couldn’t have had a more special time. The entire staff were welcoming and friendly. A special Thanks to Dan for taking care of us once we were seated. His attentiveness to my wife’s gluten allergy was a breath of fresh air. The meal was out of this world and Dan’s special touch with the gluten free cheesecake for my wife was wonderful! Thank You Dan for the framed picture you created for us to take home. Oh! And a big shout out to the bartender for making great sangrias for my wife! :)
Service was great, food was great, company was great. The perfect place to celebrate.
Our waiter was amazing and the supporting staff as well!
I had the pleasure of hosting 3 customer guests for dinner at Carlo & Johnny's - It was the restaurant and the staff that made it a very success evening. The Food was outstanding as well. Thank you so much and looking forward to a reacquiring (monthly) event.
Great service and amazing food. Really enjoyed the entire experience.
We had a wonderful time at dinner. We usually eat at the downtown location for convenience but going to Carlo and Johnny was well worth the drive. Adam was our server and did a great job. The food as always was outstanding and we loved the atmosphere.
Kevin was absolutely fabulous. Great conversation about the history of Carlo and Johnny and his service was impeccable. Certainly hope we have the pleasure of his hospitality on future visits.
By the way, a big thanks to Charlie for making this a wonderful birthday for my sister, Bonnie. Appreciate the opportunity to have the private room for this occasion.
The service was excellent but the food was not worth the price. The steaks were destroyed on both sides And was like chewing bubble gum. Also had something undercooked because it obliterated my stomach afterwards. I spent more time in the bathroom than I did at the restaurant. Definitely will not be coming back.
Great food - be prepared for a great meal at NYC prices. I'd recommend but just save up before you go.
Perfect all the way around—Steaks their usual perfection—Amber doubled as our Bartender & Waitress w/superb service—of course Fun Size Band rocks too ! Thanks!
