We ate here for an anniversary dinner. The service and food were top notch. The beer selection was limited and there was nothing on draft. The strawberry mojito was refreshing and there was a nice selection of wines. The Munoz and Collingsworth steaks were delicious....More

If you’re looking for a nice steak dinner outside of the city, go to Carlo & Johnnys. The food is delicious, atmosphere is old and unique, and the staff is attentive, knowledgeable and friendly. There was even an acoustic guitar player in the bar.

Usually when we make a reservation at Carlo and Johnny, we are celebrating, a birthday, an anniversary, life. While this dinner was definitely a celebration of life, it was also a welcome distraction from the grief of Scott's mother being very ill, and sadly, the...More

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.
