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.

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.

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...More

I agree. I don't think they have Happy Hour on a Saturday night.
Does Carlo and Johnny's have a children's menu?

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.
