  • "Words can't describe how satisfied you'll be after eating here. The price may be a little bit higher than most dining spots, but the flavor of all the different meats, plus the fast and friendly service definately make up for that. With soothing music in background and the aroma of grilled pineapples,various meats, and wine this is an experience I would recommend to all my friends and family. I will be coming back very soon."

  • "We chose Carnaval because we had a special house guest and knew it would be a fun dining experience. The salad bar is huge and the choices are familiar as well as unique. Good seasonal choices. Love the gauchos. Those men/boys are very friendly and polite--and they have a good sense of humor! We never try the hot bar. The salad bar and meat are a great meal and the pineapple is a bonus. If you can, try the desserts!! I recommend the ice cream. We will continue to take our guests to Carnaval because it is so unique and delicious! It's a treat for us, too!"

  • "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!"
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "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!"
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "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"
    Dined on 5/3/2014
  • "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!"

  • "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."
