My wife, 10 year-old daughter, and I enjoyed another very pleasant evening at Carnaval! As always, the food was delicious, the music provided by Kyle Knutson was great and the service was outstanding! Thanks to Diana and the servers who made sure our plates were never empty! One note to a previous reviewer: if you want additional amounts from a... More

We have lived in the area for years but never taken the opportunity to dine at Carnaval. We were very pleasantly surprised by the experience. It could have been all the choices, or it could have been the great service (our server was amazing...wish I could remember her name). Be hungry, make a reservation, take your time and experience the... More

Yes the food is great. I was here on business and was referred to Carnival by another Trip Advisor user who suggested we eat here. For the $21.00 cost plus drinks and dessert for one person I have mixed feelings. We went in a Wednesday night and they weren't busy but since we didn't select the option with the most... More

The food here is to die for. It may be a little expensive but it is worth it. Splurge on the buffet!

Great food , Great Service. They specialize in meat, and not just steak. Although I must say the steak is great. The Ribeye is a pound and the Tenderloin is half that. It's done just the way you like it and the salad bar is quite extensive too. If you plan on putting your self into a food coma, this... More

I had heard people talk about Brazilian steakhouses, but I had never been to one until I went to Carnaval on a recent business trip. The decor is very nice and the staff very friendly. As advertised, you can eat as much beef, lamb, and chicken as you wish. The food is much, much better than you would find at... More

If you are a meat lover, you definitely want to stop here. The food is on a skewer which is on a rotisserie. The gauchos come walk around to your table and slice off pieces of meat. You can try a variety of different steak cuts, chicken, lamb or shrimp...oh and even pineapple. We all loved the pineapple!! We did... More

Skewers of meat cut in front of you by different servers. All you can eat steak, chicken, pineapple. You will be very full when you leave. Prep yourself by building a great appetite before going and you will be fine. They also have a very nice salad bar to hit before the main course. Enjoy the experience and great food.

We made reservations, we went early not crowded at all, started getting g busy on a Friday at 6ish. Our waitress was ok..not very informative, I wish she would have told us more about everything..especially their Brazilian beverages and really how it all worked. So..ask questions. Tons of salad bar items, you name it they had it my favorite salad... More
