Description: 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.

When you step into Carlo and Johnnys you feel as though you are stepping back into a 1930's glamorous speakeasy. The building is absolutely amazing and the food is even better. This is a must of you are visiting Cincinnati. You just have to see for yourself! We'll be back again!

This is in an old home in Montgomery and is on the Historic Register. Part of the Jeff Ruby chain it offers a wonderful menu from chicken to lobster with the best steaks in the middle. The decor is very upscale and the servers are on top of your every need. A bit pricy but worth every dollar.

A restaurant in the true and classic tradition of the "American steak house", Carlo & Johnny offers massive and memorable steaks perfectly aged and prepared, generous and delicious side orders meant to be shared, an ample and fairly priced wine list and, of course, obsequious but pleasing service. The constant presence of the restaurant manager is an added plus. It will not let your down.

This steak is the best in the city but be prepared to pay for it. In other words this isn't Texas Roadhouse. The sides are decent size and really the best you will find. They really care about what they prepare. Once in a lifetime meal.
