Sometimes just to drink diet Pepsis and dance, sometimes for the full-on dinner experience that Carlo and Johnny's staff excels at providing. Charlie... More

I had made reservations online and arrived early to ensure we got a table. The Hostess then informed me I had made reservations for the following night (I felt like a buffoon lol). She then pulled some strings and about 20 minutes later we were sitting at our table enjoying the evening. My hats off to a very nimble and... More

Super food, great raw sea food, the steaks the excellent, and very good sides. The atmosphere is outstanding. They have a great wine list if you like, and can make a mean dirty martini. Not... More

Adam B was the most attentive, knowledgeable server we've had in a while. He took our tastes into account and recommended our appetizers, entrees and dessert. Everything was perfect!

Each year my husband purchases the Jeff Ruby gift certificates and bonus. Then at some point throughout the following year we will use it to celebrate in some fashion. In 2016 it was a late 25th Wedding Anniversary dinner. The food has never failed nor the service. This year we tried some specialty drinks which tied it all together. However,... More
