Wow. We went here for our anniversary and just wow. We will probably make Carlo and Johnnys an anniversary tradition after the experience we had last night.

We split the wedge salad which was delicious. I had the dry aged strip which may have been the best steak I've had in my life. Not meant to be an exaggeration. My wife had the Munoz and loved it.

While the food was delicious, our server (I think it was Chris?) Made the experience for us. He was funny, kind, and went above and beyond. I think I accidentally said mashed potatoes instead of Mac and cheese when ordering and he corrected it without hesitation.

A great night, can't wait to find an excuse to go back.

We enjoyed a delightful, romantic meal at Carlo & Johnny for our 50th anniversary! The servers at Carlo and Johnny made our experience the best we have ever had when dining out. All of the food was cooked to perfection (shrimp scampi, spinach tortellini, and pork chops). Also, upon special request, the chef had prepared a delicious sugar free cheesecake as an anniversary desert. To improve the experience, we recommend that the type of background music be something more relaxing rather than rock. Thank you for helping us have a memorable celebration. We look forward to our next occasion to visit you!

I made my reservations on OpenTable and they got messed up. But the restaurant was still very accommodating and still got me the time I wanted. One of the gentleman that helped serve me throughout the night was very polite helpful, and Since I was sitting alone started a conversation with me. He was extremely funny and made me feel more comfortable sitting in such a beautiful restaurant by myself. His name was Chris. My server was also very helpful and accommodating. Again since I was by myself he spent some time talking to me, going over all the options, gave recommendations, and does well at his job. I look forward to the next time I can dine at your restaurant

Food was fabulous and service impeccable! Couldn't have ask for more for a 35 Wedding Anniversary dinner. In fact, two other couples there were celebrating their anniversary as well. They took a picture of us to remember the day and a piece of cheesecake for dessert. It was magnificent.

I brought a vendor with me to have a nice dinner; unfortunately, for the first time my dinner was not well prepared. We both ordered steaks based on my recommendation and neither steak was prepared will. Both steaks were over cooked. Neither of us said anything to the staff simply because of the business aspect of our meeting. As we were walking out, we both brought up that we were disappointed in the meal.

The sides were fabulous as usual, and I am sure that I will try again at some point.

This was our second visit to Carlo & Johnny's, celebrating my birthday. We had a wonderful dinner starting with a Caesar salad which was exceptionally good; followed by a filet for my husband and salmon for me. Drinks are moderately priced and the service is always very friendly and prompt. I was a bit cold from a vent blowing down on me, but my wrap (always prepared!) took care of that.
Please don't hesitate to give this restaurant a try. It's definitely worth it. Great dining experience!

The food was excellent. I had the pork chops and they were possibly the best I've ever had!! The noise level was "energetic" because we requested a table in the bar ares so we could enjoy the band. Only disappointment, for some reason you did not allow open table points.

Not great experience for Mother's day. Wish I would have known that you only had a buffet as we wouldn't have gone. Food quality was really disappointing. No where near the quality of food I'd expect from a Ruby restaurant. Ran out of Prime rib. Said on menu that buffet was complimentary for 4 and under, then was charged for 4 year old. Would not recommend going for the buffet.

The Freddie salad is amazing and the steak so tender you hardly have to chew. It’s a great place for special occasions.
