Wonderful service! The filet will melt in your mouth. The grilled octopus was fantastic. The wedge salad they will bring out to you chopped, if you wish, and was perfect. A great place for all!

We had supper at Carnevor on Sunday evening, 11/12/2016. We ordered the Petite Fillet with the wine sauce and it was excellent. The meat was tender and done exactly to our request. We had an excellent server who pleasantly informed us of the specials for the evening and was very prompt with our order and checked back with us to... More

Being from Chicago we know a good quality Steakhouse. The staff was excellent. Both knowledgeable and fun and timely with courses. Wine selection was great as well. Salads were fresh and tasty as were the brussel sprouts. We both had the Filet's which were cooked to perfection at medium rare. I had the Au poivre sauce which was very good.... More

We chose Carnevor as our 35th wedding anniversary choice this year and we were completely happy with our choice. I read a couple of the recent reviews and could hardly believe that we were in the same place. We did dine there on a Wednesday evening and it was rather quiet, but a decent amount of patrons. Service at the... More

Pros - Waiter acknowledged our 18th Wedding Anniversary and it was written into our menu. Owner paid our dinner. Why? See Cons.. Cons - Res at 7:15 arrived 7:10, very noisy & crowded (violating fire code?). Nearly cancelled "Romantic" dinner right then. Escorted to bar next door & not their own bar(glad not January). Seated at 7:45 (outside to return).... More

Went to dinner with my wife and brother and the only reservations I could get on a Saturday was for 5:00pm. We got there 10 minutes early and the wait staff said they were not open without giving us the option to wait at the bar. I had to ask can we wait at the bar and the response was... More

For the purpose of full disclosure: I received no payment or anything of value in return for this review or any reviews I have written in the past. I fully pay my own freight when it comes to dining. My wife and I had tickets to see "Man of La Mancha" at the Milwaukee Repertory Theatre complex on Oct. 23,... More

Probably the best steak house in town - and a nicely designed updated one at that. Not the old school wood paneled, red upholstered booth type of steak house. Refreshing design, excellent service, very high quality food. If you don't feel like a steak the salmon is delicious as well. Highly recommend.

Milwaukee's premier steakhouse, Carnevor is one of Wisconsin’s most acclaimed fine dining destinations. A restaurant consistently topping year-end “Best Of” lists, Carnevor has been lauded for its variety of culinary tastes – from our luscious barrel-cut beef to mouthwatering New York Strips and bone-in fillets. Our steak menu offers exquisite wet- and dry-aged USDA prime beef – a distinction afforded to less than two percent of all American beef – as well as daily selections of the coveted Kobe, imported from Japan to guarantee the most succulent and tender waygu. And with a wine list featuring more than 400 selections, you’ll always find the perfect bottle to uncork with your meal. But it’s not merely the “meal” you’ll enjoy at Carnevor. It’s the entire experience: service, music, menu, and more. To top it all, herbivores are always welcome.
Please call restaurant to arrange large party reservations.
