We were there to celebrate my daughter's birthday. The service was fantastic, our waiter was great. The food wasn't as good as Jeff Ruby's in downtown Cincinnati. The atmosphere was a little gloomy and dark. It was very enjoyable, though.

I was in a business group that came here for dinner. The location is convenient, being just far enough outside downtown to avoid most traffic, but there is still some bleedover from the interstate. The atmosphere and decor are designed to be a 20s speakeasy....More

We found the service to be exceptional! Our server bent over backwards to ensure our comfort. If you make a reservation, ask for Dan! My husband enjoyed his steak, potato, and salad. I found the pasta less enjoyable. The tomato sauce was a bit heavy...More

A friend of mine and I were visiting Cincinnati and decided to try this local steakhouse. The ambiance is absolutely superb - we dined in the Hollywood Room and I admired the crystal chandeliers and the bounded leather booths. The drinks were generous and well...More

No, I do not think they have a children's menu. And there really are no small portion sizes at Carlo & Johnny's . You could always split a filet or other main entrée, but no small bite items.

Following the Jeff Ruby tradition of fine dining in unique settings is Carlo & Johnny. This beautiful mansion has a storied history as a casino and Mafia hangout, adorned with antiques and unique appointments. As for the menu, it's in keeping with the Jeff Ruby tradition; delicious, innovative, and out-of-this-world. And with 15 steaks, it's Ruby's most comprehensive menu ever. The old Hollywood glamour and delicious cuisine promise a meal and experience to remember.
