Steak
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 Wagyu imported from Japan. And with a wine list featuring more than 750 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.

Everything was amazing! People who are concerned about social distancing, etc should feel very safe here. Many tables have been removed so all dining parties are at least 6 feet apart.

It had been eight months since my last visit due to COVID. I was really excited and looking forward to finally eating at Carnevor. I ordered a med filet and received a very well done filet. The recooked filet came back near raw. The general manager who is a very nice guy offered to cook another one by then the experience was not very good I just settle for the near raw filet. The general manager didn’t charge me for the filet but I was very disappointed that the experience was not good. I live in Fond du lac so I don’t get down there often. I always believe in another chance but the expense to drive that far I will have to think before I make a another reservation. Just being honest as the staff at Carnevor is awesome...

It is rare to find a place where the steak is evenly cooked. Wet aging it certainly helps, but what happens in the kitche is key.

The shitake reduction sauce was not particularly shitake-ish, possibly for adding too much of whatever reduced it (wine) or because it was prepared in well in advance. A VERY minor flaw. I cannot wait to return.

You can't go wrong with the Dry-aged NY Strip, but be prepared to pause your conversation, because, really, you'll need a moment with just you and your steak.

Ask them to go light on the seasoning on the stakes. It’s a bit too salty for our liking. Been like that for our last couple visits, but since we only go once a year we forgot to ask for light seasoning.

A Happy Anniversary card greeted us at the table when we arrived. The service was impeccable. We never felt rushed like you often do in these covid times. The tuna tartare was the best we've ever had. We order it often and eat a lot of sushi. Salad course was also extraordinary. Our steaks and mashed potatoes with truffle and lobster were the best we have ever had. We are foodies and I expected a great meal because of their reputation but Carnevor far exceeded my expectations.

The best steak in Milwaukee. Best service in Milwaukee. My wife had the ribeye and I had a filet and scallops. All were prepared to perfection. Stan our waiter has been there since day one and he was awesome. Only minor issues were it was louder than usual due to the presence of children which is unusual and the other is that it is very expensive. We go to Carnevor for birthdays and anniversaries and it is our favorite restaurant. Can’t wait to go back.

Celebrated our anniversary here and was blown away by the food and service! They even had a card at our table congratulating us. Our one complaint was that we were seated next to a large group talking business that really raised the level of noise in that area of the restaurant - not exactly the most romantic thing to yell over their conversation. Once they left the noise level was much better and we were able to enjoy the rest of our meal.
