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.

“Nice Birthday Celebration!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013

There were five couples celebrating my daughter-in-laws birthday. We all ordered a variety of different courses. My son and I ate wonderful oysters. We all had different steaks and seafoods and no one did anything but brag about the food. We thought we had the best and then we all got dessert.Wow!- Another Jeff Ruby success!

“Service is over the top”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

Husband and i went for Valentine's dinner. We had a wonderful dinner, steak, salad and veggie to share. The steaks were outstanding. The only drawback is the wait staff. Alot of interruptions and different servers stopping by to check on us. While some may appreciate the attention, we were having trouble getting through a conversation at times! Not the best experience, but may be that they were trying to turn tables due to the 'holiday'. I'm sure we will definitely go back.

“Fantastic Food and Great Atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

I have eaten at other Jeff Ruby restaurants but this was the first time at Carlo and Johnny. The steak and shrimp were cooked to perfection. So tender that you barely needed to use a knife. The Freddie Salad was excellent as well as the sides that we ordered which included Mac and cheese, mushrooms, and spinach. The desserts and Coffee at the end of the meal were excellent as well. Can't wait to go back!

“My favorite Ruby's”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013

All the Jeff Ruby's are great steakhouses. I like C&J the best. Cozy New York style decor. Great bar. Outstandingly fresh oysters. Perfect steaks. Don't be tempted to order to many sides because its alot of food.

“Birthday dinner to remember!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

I took my husband for a birthday dinner. We were sat in the room with the wonderfully warm fireplace. The entire experience was grand. Very attentive and interactive staff, great food that all came out at the right time and the drinks were wonderful. Come ready to sit back and relax while you enjoy several courses.
