Well, I make a point to visit top rated steakhouses. This one does not disappoint. The shrimp cocktail was unreal. 3 shrimps 5 bites each! Everyone got steak. Perfect. I had the KC strip with Collinsworth topping..... yeah.....legit. Ask for the peanut butter chocolate tort for dessert....off the menu....wife approved.

We went to carlo and johnny for restaurant week. We had been to the other jeff ruby restaurants and carlo and johnny is just as great,if not better because of the ambience. The service is top notch, the steaks are the best you will have.

Just the wife and I, enjoying a awesome dinner at a very outstanding restaurant. Shrimp Cocktail to share, then a Fillet for her and a Pork Chop for me. A side of Mac & Cheese and a Butter Pie slice for desert. Wash it down with a glass of Cab and it's hard to find a better experience.

We went to Carlo & Johnny for our 28th anniversary dinner, since we had a previous good experience and it was a little closer to home than other highly rated steakhouses. The decor is a little overdone - how many old movie poster can you cram onto the walls. We had to wait for about 30 minutes, despite a confirmed... More

I've been fortunate to do a significant amount of business travel that has allowed me to dine in many fine restaurants across the country. These are the best steaks you'll find anywhere. The Jeff Ruby Steak Houses are known for their steaks & they will not disappoint. Great steak entrees with family style sides. This place is not for those... More

We had already visited two other restaurants within the last few days taking advantage of restaurant week. Upon sitting down at the table we were given the restaurant week menu only, which is what we had come for. When our waiter came over to the table for our drink order he brought with him the regular menus so that we... More

Carlo and Johnny's has been our "go to" restaurant for all types celebrations, and we are always pleased with the atmosphere, service and food. However, during our most recent visit - during "Cincinnati Restaurant Week", while the atmosphere and food were still top notch, service was a let down. When we arrived our hostess asked if we wanted the regular... More

Consistently great food and service! We tend to go for special occasions and are always pleased. Known for their steak, the menu is balanced to have several other offerings unlike some other steakhouses. The Caprese salad was wonderful! The mozzarella melted in my mouth and the tomatoes were beefy! Followed by lobster tail and ended with the best cheesecake I... More
