Carlo and Johnny is more than a premier steak house. It is more than great live music. It is more than superb service. Somehow, it is more than the sum of its parts. We come here often. Sometimes just to drink diet Pepsis and dance,...More

I agree. I don't think they have Happy Hour on a Saturday night.

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.
