Brought my husband here for his birthday and it was a wonderful experience from beginning until end. The service and food are always wonderful as expected. I ordered the halibut and he ordered the filet and they were both delicious. We will be back!

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.
