My very good friend and I went here a little over a week ago for her birthday. She has wanted to here for a while now. We sat at the bar. Had the best bartender, Addie. She made some great recommendations for some different cocktails rather than our usual go-tos. She really knew the menu and picked the perfect wine... More

If you want to try a steak like you never had, you must eat here. The steak just melts in your mouth. Appetizer are excellent and creme brulee is an awesome dessert.

We were here for business and absolutely loved everything about this place! First off - the atmosphere is perfect! It is not stuffy at all like some high-end restaurants can be...very trendy and very cool. Secondly - the food and service were out of this world. One of the most flavorful filets I've had. Everyone in our party raved about... More

The good and not so good. First off, my husband wanted to try Carnevor for this birthday as he just wanted a wonderful steak dinner. Let's start with the service: Excellent service all the way around, from the greeters to our waiter to the serving staff. Only compliments to them. The restaurant in its new location: Mercy, for a high-end... More

Had dinner with a client. Great wine selection good beer selection. Sides were very rich and heavy. Filet was the best cut of meat I've had in years - prepared medium rare. Spot on and was a great experience. I will be back.

This is a superior restaurant. We pleased with the steaks, sides, and general presentation. Our server met our every expectation. The only drawback for this restaurant is the noise. A great disappointment for this class of restaurant.

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

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.
