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.

Waitress was a bit unpleasant. The steak was phenomenal- one of the best I’ve ever had (bone in filet). Caesar salad had way too much dressing.

It is the best steak in Milwaukee (without question).

I dine every chance I get in major cities and comparably the steaks at Carnevor is as good as any place I have gone.

We had a fabulous time, as usual! The dirty martini at the bar was a nice way to start the night out. Everyone at our table was beyond impressed with the food. We had everything from Oysters, the Beet Salad, Lobster Bisque, Filet and crab. It all was great.

Rush, rush, rush! With nothing planned for the Saturday evening, we decided to treat ourselves with a return visit to Carnevor. We were disappointed that our table was adjacent to the very lively bar when there were other open tables, but figured they’d fill with other reservations. Our waitress greeted us and promptly took our drink order. She returned to review the menu with us and check for questions. Promptly delivering the drinks, she wanted to take our food order. I explained that we would like to enjoy our cocktails for a bit before ordering. Five minutes later, she returned, so we ordered. As anticipated, the meal was excellent. We ordered some wine to accompany our meals, and our ever-efficient waitress tried to take away our cocktails before we had finished them. Dessert? We figured they needed our table so we walked to a neighboring establishment for a couple of desserts and two rounds of after-dinner drinks. We probably spent more time there, even though paying much less than $200!

In my opinion, it’s the best steakhouse in town. I’ve never had a bad meal here. The staff pampers you and is well educated on the menu. Very expensive but worth it if you like to splurge all over the wall. Highly recommend.

Food was great, and the ambiance was perfect. The service was good, but at times felt rushed. Literally had waitress take my drink from the table when it was half gone. We ate with our daughters who are 10 and 8, and the service staff was great with them.

The food at Carnevor is the best of the best. The appetizers, salads, soup and sides are all delicious, but the steaks are perfection!!

We were disappointed there was no valet parking on Sunday. It was quite inconvenient for a restaurant of that caliber not to offer valet parking.

Steak was the best we have had in years! This restaurant is beautiful to look at, and Valet is very convenient. However, there were two things that dampened our experience. First, it was very cold in the restaurant, to the point that some of us left our winter coats on. Second, the service was not nearly as good as it was the previous time we went. Our server was on the rude side, and we had to ask for things, like butter for example, 4 times before it was brought to the table. The previous server we had was wonderful to us, so we would go back again.

3rd visit to Carnevor. Not as enjoyable as the first 2. They've reconfigured the seating. Tables can be close together, like a NYC restaurant. Food is good but no better than other high end steakhouses I've been to. Service wasn't great. A large table came in towards the end of our meal and we became and afterthought. For the price I expect better service. Also can get noisy when the restaurant is full.

People love the feeling of being in a great restaurant. The feeling's even better at this great steakhouse. The incredible atmosphere sets the tone for a fun, enjoyable dinner. The staff have a love and passion for their craft; they truly take care of their guests. The location is great, too. At the heart of downtown Milwaukee - it is just minutes from all the sites. Definitely the place to go for a special occasions. Our family loves great steak and wine. And that is exactly what we got, along with superb service and the perfect start to our night on the town. We loved this place.

Overall thought it was okay. I was very disappointed with the flexibility on changing my side option. I asked for a different vegetable option and got shot down immediately with a no we can't do that. My dish was not good it was the king crab legs. My bad for expecting them to taste fabulous. The best thing for me was the truffle mash and the chocolate cake. The steak my husband had was okay as well. Not sure if I would recommend it or return.
