Each year my husband purchases the Jeff Ruby gift certificates and bonus. Then at some point throughout the following year we will use it to celebrate in some fashion. In 2016 it was a late 25th Wedding Anniversary dinner. The food has never failed nor the service. This year we tried some specialty drinks which tied it all together. However,... More

My husband and I went here for a birthday dinner on a Friday night. We had made a reservation and I am glad we did - the place was busy. We started out with a cocktail, salad and crispy pork belly. Then for entree we had braised short ribs and the pork chop (with mac & cheese). Both entrees were... More

Following the Jeff Ruby tradition,the fillets and strips were perfectly seasoned and grilled. Oysters and shrimp from the raw bar were awesome.Dessert was right there with the butter pie. We wanted for nothing,service was great.

If your beef craving hits, Carlo and Johnny never fails. Steaks always done to perfection and impeccable service is a plus. Catering to the business crowd on expense account it is on the high side price wise, but for what you get still very enjoyable. In my opinion the best of Jeff Ruby's restaurants.

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.
