  • "I have had family and friends tell me how great this place was, but I really had no idea until I actually experienced it myself. Make sure to bring your appetite! All of the different meats were delicious and the servers kept coming around until I couldn't possibly eat anymore. My daughter loved the grilled pineapple and had three servings! I will be coming back for sure."

  • "Carnalval Brazilian Grill is one of the best Churascarias in the States. We have been to places in Minneapolis and New York City that have been wonderful and this Sioux Falls gem outperforms them. The Food is wonderful as is the ambience and live music on the weekends. The price is half of what you would pay in the big city. However, the thing that makes this place shine is the staff. The Gauchos from Brazil are the reason to go. They make you want to fly to Brazil!"

  • "We were celebrating our 25th anniversary with our children, and it was their first time at a Brazilian Grill; they enjoyed it immensely, as did we! Our waitress explained the menu & answered questions. She was very attentive in refilling drinks and checking on us, but didn't hover, which we appreciated. The gauchos constantly came to our table and we never had to wait. The food was delicious and worth the price; for us, the restaurant is a "special occasion" place. The live music was an added bonus, but at times the noise level made it difficult to hear our waitress and each other in conversation. Our anniversary celebration at Carnaval was outstanding and we're glad we chose it!"

  • "The salad bar was wonderful. At the beginning the meat servers were quickly at our table. For a repeat serving we had to request 4 times, each time to a different waiter/employee. I liked the opportunity to try some Brazillian-spiced food."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "Never been there before and it was a great expierence. Was great service and wonderful salad bar. Some of the meats a bit undertone for my taste but overall I liked it. Music in the background was nice and not over bearing!"

  • "The carrot cake was better than usual (and it is always excellent).. wonderful! The food, service, entire experience was spot on... one of the best places to dine in Sioux Falls."
    Dined on 6/11/2014
  • "As always, the food and service were outstanding. They do a great job of making sure you have plenty of opportunity to get the meat you'd like. Not to be overlooked is the great salad bar! There is a wide selection of delicious salads. I'm a carnivore at heart, but I have to be careful I don't fill up on the delicious "rabbit food" here. And once again the music was great, with another impressive solo artist, Kyle Knudson. When we travel to Sioux Falls for an evening out, Carnaval is our top choice. "

  • "Love the food at Brazilian Carnaval, especially the pineapple. Just wish the pineapple guy came by more often. Would have enjoyed more lamb also. The signature beef was melt in your mouth tender as was all the beef. My least favorite was the Parmesam Chicken. Thought it could use a little more seasoning. Would definitely recommend this place and will go again"

  • "if you left hungry, it's your own fault. Delicious selection of meats brought to your table until you tell them to stop,salad bar with all the sides and if, for some strange reason you still are hungry, choose a delectable desert from the desert tray. The staff is super friendly and professional also. Kudos to you all!"

  • "I tried this restaurant for the first time and it was well worth it. It's a little spendy, but you just can't beat it! They had a live jazz band playing the night we went and it was really great! Would definitely recommend this to friends!"

  • "What a great place for an extra special night out. Beautiful atmosphere, delightful wait staff (all of them!), and really really good food. There was live music, which we weren't expecting, and just enough energy throughout without overpowering our conversation. I traveled two hours to spend the evening here and it was everything I had hoped for and more. Highly recommend this place."

  • "I always like to take the family and my boys family's here for Easter brunch. It does get a little expensive but it also gives them an oppurtunity to eat out at a very nice place with a unique dining experience that they would not be able to do on their own."

  • "I took my mom to Carnaval Brazilian Grill for a surprise birthday . She had been talking about wanting to go there for awhile, so I thought it would be a nice birthday present. It was fantastic! The food was phenomenal, truly a heavenly treat. Service was fantastic. We both ordered the Gaucho Meal, and there was never a shortage of great food for us to try. The staff was insanely polite. They were always smiling and fun to talk to. Our glasses we never much more over halfway gone before we got refills, which is fantastic. The lighting and the atmosphere were both wonderful. I loved the rainbow lights across the ceiling. The noise level was also kept pretty quiet as opposed to many places I've eaten. All in all, it was an amazing experience."
    Dined on 4/1/2014
  • "Everybody needs to experience Carnaval Brazilian Grill one time. The energy and enthusiasm of the place is great! The staff is energetic and friendly and the food was outstanding. Go into the meal with a gameplan as you don't want to overload yourself at the beginning at the salad bar because than you won't be able to fully experience the wide variety of meats they offer."

  • "Fun, energetic atmosphere with a large variety of food to choose from. Great place to eat."

  • "Food is excellent! Meat-heavy offerings are done to perfection. Salad bar has small quantities that are refreshed frequently. Do NOT miss the grilled pineapple. Waitstaff is excellent. They all look like they are having a great time and add to the fun. Carnival would be great for groups and is kid friendly, but my wife and I went without the kids. We were seated in a cozy half-moon booth that allowed us to sit close together and watch the passing scene and converse over the excellent live music without yelling."
    Dined on 3/27/2014
  • "The food was amazing, service fast and she was always checking back up on us. Down fall is we got put in a corner near the front of the restaurant and bar and since there was a band it was a little on the loud side and we had people bumping into our table. We were told about this restaurant by friends and it's truly an experience, especially in a state that has limited options compared to some other states."

  • "This is the third time we have been at Carnaval...it seemed like the gouchos did not approach our table nearly as often as in the past. My husband loves the lamb and was only served lamb one time. Not sure if there were less walking around than the past. All three times we have gone on a Friday night. Our server was very attentive. The music is great. The salad bar had more variety this time and I really enjoyed the options. Our children enjoy everything. It was our sons 19th birthday and this is where he chose to go for dinner."
