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.

It was our wedding anniversary and it was a perfect meal. The food was amazing, the wine was great and the time together as a family was the best. Carnevor is a perfect fine dining experience. Thank you to the team for making our evening special!

Excellent experience. The food and service was exceptional. Ive been there three times and I will continue to go there as it's one of my favorite steakhouses. The noise is a little much probably due to people speaking over the music, but don't get me wrong I enjoy their play list. It's a little dark making it difficult to read the menu, I saw several people using their phone flashlight which is kind of funny.

Birthday dinner for my 25 year old daughter! Food was good but we were disappointed in the ambience! Room was a box and no windows. Be sure to ask for main dining or even the bar!!

I've already got someone else making a rez on our say-so. I didn't realize that it was an "occasion" restaurant (read: fancy/expensive) but we are lucky to be able to afford that kind of luxury on occasion and the food and service were outstanding. One of my friends described the truffle mashed potatoes as "life-changing," and that's a pretty accurate description.

This is not a review, I’m not a food critic. Just a little bit about my experience. Overall experience was teriffic. Service was great, not stuffy or overbearing. Food was pretty good. The side of Mac and cheese wasn’t my cup of tea as a Mac lovers. Just my personal opinion. Steaks were cooked perfectly, crab cake was phenomenal. Pricey spot but, worth the trip and the money.

Your music was so loud could not carry on a conversation. Also not appropriate dinner music. We walked in to a Killers song. I love the Killers but not what I would call dinner music.

One of the best NY Strip steaks I have ever had. I reserve 5 stars for mind blowing results. This is a great, modern take on a steak place. Absolutely try it over the traditional options here in Milwaukee.

I would probably just eat here every single day if I could. The food was delivered to the table in a timely manner, prepared exactly as we ordered it, and was exceptional! It was a little harder to get used to the dark lighting in the restaurant, but I understand that it adds a certain mood and personally feel it helped keep the noise level low.

I have only heard good things about Carnevor and was excited to be able to finally try it out. I WILL be back.

Carnevor is our go-to for all special occasions and they never disappoint! We were pleased to have Gina as our server as we've been at her table before. Her upbeat attitude, sense of humor, and first class service always make for a wonderful dining experience. And of course, the food is always delicious, the drinks creative, and everything is prepared with excellence and attention to detail.
