    Jeff Ruby’s always delivers a top notch experience. Fantastic food, excellent service, great atmosphere. If you’re in the mood for a nice meal or celebrating a special occasion, why would you go anywhere else?

    Food as always was excellent. However, the service was extremely slow - not what we have experienced in many previous visits. Our waiter was excellent but his support staff was not. Preparation of our drink order, salads and then entrees were each delivered with large gaps of time in between though everything was delivered fresh at appropriate temperature. This is the first time we have encountered this at a Jeff Ruby restaurant - sad to see. We have been to Carlo & Johnny multiple times post COVID. It will make us consider going some where else when we next have a special occasion.

    We chose this restaurant to celebrate our son’s birthday after a very difficult year. He absolutely loves great food and wanted to go somewhere with a nice selection of scotch and port. Unfortunately they didn’t have anything he selected despite having it listed on their menus. I think he may have asked for 5-10 different options with our poor server having to come back to our table and apologize each time. It almost became comical. They should definitely reprint their drink menu. Despite that, we had excellent service and the food was prepared well. I probably will consider somewhere different for our next special occasion.

    The food and service at Carlo & Johnny are second to none. It isn’t cheap, but you know that going in. You pay for what you get, and everything there is absolutely top notch. It was our anniversary and all of the help was aware of that and was sure to congratulate us. They even gave us a complimentary dessert. C&J is by far my favorite restaurant for special occasions.

    Great experience. They rolled out the red carpet for us. Went to dinner to celebrate my son who is deploying for the Army. A party of seven and all had a good time. - Everyone should have a Jeff Ruby's experience at least once.

    Awesome Place to eat! Steak was perfect! Ordered the 12 oz Filet and shared it with my wife. We were celebrating our 34th anniversary and they did not disapoint. They set us up on a corner table and the waiter was very nice. He went over the history of the restaurant and went way beyond the normal service. We will definitely come back and visit again. Thank you very much!

    The staff was very welcoming from every level. We were asked multiple times about how we were doing, how was the meal, did we enjoy ourselves...love that! The fine details were attended to making my husband and I feel quite special. Our serve Dave was incredibly knowledgeable, hospitable and genuinely cared about our service. Enjoyed the birthday treat for my husband at the end! What a nice detail! Can't wait to return.

    Food was outstanding, as always. Our waiter, Christopher could not have been better! He was wonderful to say the least. I asked for a quiet table and the room was anything but quiet. We were celebrating our anniversary and had a difficult time talking to one another because it was so loud in there. That was very disappointing. It was anything but the romantic evening I had planned. The other extremely disappointing thing is that I noticed quite a few people dining with shorts, gym shoes and t-shirts. Sorry but I feel this is not a sports bar and people should not be permitted in a fine dining restaurant like a Ruby restaurant dressed this way. I never went back to Morton's because of this happening when we were celebrating our anniversary and I really don't want to take a Ruby restaurant off my list as well. Come on Jeff Ruby, keep this a classy, upscale restaurant and don't allow it or confine people who want to dress like that to one separate room/area.
