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.

My daughter treated me to $38 Mother's Day that was replete with everything you'd expect for brunch at a steakhouse: steak station, omelet station, dessert station, & chocolate truffle station! Food was amazing, staff was par example, everything perfect. Knowing it's a Jeff Ruby resto, we expected only the very best & our high expectations were met.

Definitely a splurge site to treat oneself on special occasions. We'll probably make this a Mom's Day tradition. Bottle of perfectly chilled Prosecco was proffered at a reasonable price of $35. They definitely made my day & the place is not the least bit stuffy. Loved it!!

I expected exceptional steaks and was not disappointed. We had Alaskan crab starter which was great, then a main of filet on the bone. This was fabulous and certainly worth returning for. Service was attentive and good and wine list great. Not quite to my taste was the decor; it seemed dated and without much character or style for a restaurant that offers such great food and that can be quite expensive.

The service and food are both incredible. Ruby has amazing restaurants in town and this is one of them. The raw bar is one of a kind for the Cincinnati area.

This is by far the best steak in town. You can feel safe going to any of Ruby's restaurants. Oh and if you like Mac and cheese get it. It is awesome.

This is the second year in a row that we've enjoyed Easter Brunch at this establishment. A very nice and welcomming staff. A large selection of food, including salmon (broiled and chilled), ham, sausage, bagels, variety of eggs (including omlets made to order), potatoe dishes, broiled chicken, fresh fruit and cheese, beef, waffels w/flavored sauces, mini desserts (including an assortment of chocolates and cheescake and key lime pie). A variety of cocktails and coffee are available for purchase. A pleasant atmosphere and enjoyed by all. We'll definitely be going back next year!
