Diner Reviews
  • "My wife, two nine year olds, and I, had dinner at Carnival Brazilian Barbecue. It was a great experience and we enjoyed it. We liked the ability to decide how much to eat and when, and appreciated the opportunity to try different meats and sides without the risk of getting it as a meal and being disappointed. The food was great! My wife does prefer her beef rare and since most of the beef came prepared well done, she did not enjoy as much as she would have liked. Although our kids enjoyed it, it was a bit pricey for how much they actually ate. However, we highly recommend Carnaval and have already booked our next dinner with friends (no kids)."

  • "Everything is great, but they consistently overcook the meat. Unless the inner most meat on the skewer gets to you, you'll likely get a well done morsel."

  • "Great bbq. Was incredibly impressed by the side dish options (way beyond your basic fries, mashed potato, rice, etc). The salads were fantastic and the meat so tender. Next time we'll save room for dessert."

  • "Food arrived at our table before we got our drink orders in thus creating a feeling of being rushed. Quality OK, but some of the beef was fatty. The pork and grilled pineapple were delicious. Our cues not to serve us (via the red coasters) didn't matter - they still came to us and interrupted our conversation. Drinks came out too slowly and our server was not very friendly. The experience was interesting - I think if our server had been more outgoing and spent some time explaining things to us we might have been happier. Its not that we were totally unhappy - just that at the end of the night, the consensus of all 6 of us is "might go back at some point, but not going to rush back soon""

  • "Carnival was a very good experience and I recommend to try it. It is better suited for a group of people anywhere from 4-10. I wouldn't go there on a date. The service was excellent, quick, friendly, on time...a+ The meat and choice of meat was wonderful. However the sides have room to improve. We didn't even get the sides we ordered. I'd like to see more side options and overall better quality. Carnival takes pride in the meat they serve but should not overlook the sides. The ambiance is fair but it is loud. The open concept is almost required as the servers go around with the meat and so it gets loud quickly. Thus why I wouldn't go on a date here.."

  • "The experience was very positive. We were warmly greeted and shown to our table in a cheery manner. The hostel and serving staff were very attentive, but not overbearing, making it a very positive dining experience."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "Food was amazing, great taste and out of everything eaten only one of the meats was over seasoned(very salty). We had an excellent waitress very friendly. Our only complaint was in the hour and half we were there by the hr mark we had still not seen our tasted the pineapple(that everyone told us we had to try). Even are server twice went and reminded and ask them to hit our table. Finally at the 1hr 20min mark our waitress just went and got us some and brought back on a plate for us and it was as good as everyone said it would be. Other then that loved this place. The waitress saved the day for us"

    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "Some seasonings on meats were extremely salty. Most tasted the same and you could not get a full appreciation of the different types. It was a later seating on a Saturday and the restaurant was very busy. We felt rushed as most of the meats all came at the same time.The noise level was very high and we could barely hear our friends at the same table. If you are a big meat eater this is the place for you."

  • "Reserved a table for three using the Open Table option. Seating was available for either 4:30 or 9:00. Chose 4:30 and were seated immediately. Servers explained the system well and suggested sides. Service was prompt. Gauchos were polite and frequent. Meat options were good. There were a few that were overdone and/or overseasoned. It would have been nice to see the option for medium, rare, well-done pieces of meat. Experience was good. I have been to one other Brazilian Steakhouse. I would come back to this one, but not a "have-to-experience" restaurant."

  • "We enjoyed our dinner with friends at Carnivale. We have two teen boys who actually ate until they were full and had to turn the card to "red" - they enjoyed the various meats and tried quite a number of the side dishes. We loved the flavours and the ability to pick and choose what you wanted to try and the variety of tastes we enjoyed. We enjoyed the ambiance and had a great time ... would definitely go again."

  • "We had a memorable Birthday celebration. Carnaval is definitely a dining experience. The food and service were fantastic. The restaurant is very loud and the noise level takes away from the overall expereience."
    Dined on 3/19/2014
  • "Great place to fill your meat tooth, all you can eat, steakhouse quality, what's not to love? All cuts were cooked perfectly, and there was plenty of variety. My favorites were the rib-eye and the hot sausage. Great sides are included with the dinner, your choice served "family style" Highly recommend for a special occasion as the price, while worth it, is a little high for casual dining."
    Dined on 3/17/2014
  • "We waited over 25 minutes for a server to even acknowledge our presence, and had to to ask someone for service,) Food was great and we were enjoying our last bites and beverages when the server arrived at our table to advise us that we needed to leave the table now as they needed it for a new reservation. We fully understood the 2 hour policy After 1,5 hour we were asked to leave. Being late to be served should have allowed us the time at the end, this did not happen."
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "The food was absolutely delicious. The servers were very knowledgeable and friendly. We ordered a total of 4 different sides, and they were all incredible. We will definitely go back again, but because of the price, it would be another special occasion."
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "This restaurant is good for people with a huge appetite, however if you like your meat well done, this is not the place for you. Most of the meat selections are beef and are medium done, I do not like lamb or spicy meat so the sausage was out. My only choice was the pork, which was delicious and the chicken which was over spiced for me. For me the $42.00 was high for what I ate, but my husband enjoyed every piece of meat he took and all the sides. The $42.00 price was just right for him for what he ate. There are a lot of sides to choose from and was nice to try some things you never had before. Everything has olive oil, or garlic and quite spiced so if you have problems with spices or oil this may be a problem."
