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

Consistently great food and service! We tend to go for special occasions and are always pleased. Known for their steak, the menu is balanced to have several other offerings unlike some other steakhouses. The Caprese salad was wonderful! The mozzarella melted in my mouth and...More

This is a must do restaurant for a special occasion. I highly recommend the bone in ribeye which is their specialty. The crispy seasoned edge of the steak was out of this world.

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.
