Carlo & Johnny Ratings and Reviews
As always food was cooked to order and delicious. It wasn't the usual Ruby service I've come to know. Clearing the table was extremely slow. Refilling drinks except water was slow. After ordering deserts it was over a half hour before it was served. It was carrot cake and chocolate peanut butter ice cream.
Went with a friend, sides are sharable. Crab cake was large so we split it. IT WAS AMAZING. I NEVER KNEW CRAB TASTED SO GOOD. After ordering salad, dinner was served. So oo oo much food trust me. We will absolutely be back. This is now my favorite Jeff Ruby restaurant. The service was impeccable. Our server Chris was amazing and on point with the history of the restaurant. It was an enjoyable time. Make a reservation to ensure you get a seat or just have drinks at the bar. Live music was on the menu and just added to the ambiance. Come early to beat the crowd. We arrived around 5pm on a Friday and there was plenty of bar seating. We had a glass of wine each and enjoyed the music right before being seated for dinner. Love this place!
We have always loved Jeff Ruby steaks and have eaten there since the late 90s. The steaks this time were fantastic as usual. The hostess was very helpful in getting us chairs to sit on while our table got ready. All the servers were friendly and informative. It is a very pricey but worthwhile experience for a steak lover!
We were seated in the back room by the patio. Mike was our waiter.. very polite and knowledgeable. the atmosphere changes with each room.. each with its own distinct mood and color combos.. live music was not bad at all nor too loud and to my surprise, we couldn't even hear a peep out of the bands in the back room (which was a good thing). I ordered the raw specialty oysters which were absolutely on point I could taste the sea water.. right back to being a kid again.. then we both ordered steaks with baked potato and sautéed mushrooms. the chefs really take pride in their artwork. every plate is so colorful... the steaks were 2 inches thick and cooked to perfection. its worth the money.. there isn't many other restaurants that can provide an eating experience like this one.. credit to the manager and staff.
For a very expensive restaurant, we weren't pleased with the fact that the filet ordered medium rare came out well done. Not to mention, my husband had to wait while I ate my entire meal until the new steak came out. For a place like this, I would have expected them to comp a portion of the meal for the inconvenience.
All Ruby's restaurants are exceptional but hands down the waiter I had here was the BEST and when I come back I will request him. Mr. Frazier! :) Gave us the history of the restaurant, awesome food suggestions, and was just the most genuine guy. Of course food was 100% top notch but it always is at a Ruby's restaurant
We always have a great time at Carlo and Johnny, our favorite of the Cincinnati market Jeff Ruby restaurants. A great atmosphere, great food (the macaroni & cheese is a must, habanero tomato soup has been a nice addition to the appetizer list), and typically good service. Our waiter seemed to have a larger group this time, so service was a little slower than usual. Valet station guys are the best...always remember us and are very fast/friendly.
Food was fantastic but, the service was even better. It was my wives birthday and they did a great job of making it special. Everyone wished my wife happy birthday from the hostess, servers, manager and they even took a picture of our party and made a couple of copies of the photo for us to take with us.
My wife and I had a great time, it was our Anniversary, I had requested flowers (specific setup) and chilled wine waiting for us. They had it all done precisely as asked. Our Server Jim was available at all times and did a great job answering any questions we had. We for sure will make it back for our next Anniversary.
