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.

You can consistently get a great steak. We eat here about once a month and have never been disappointed. The flavor and quality of the beef is truly exceptional. We actually prefer to eat at the bar, but the service is also always been great everywhere in the place. If you haven't been you really need to give it a try, you'll be hooked.

Overall amazing dining experience. Our steaks (both filets) were perfectly prepared and exquisitely delicious. Service was attentive but not intrusive. The ambiance adds to the experience (it's a little dark when you walk in, but your eyes do adjust). Carnevor is not the kind of place that is in our typical price range, so as a very rare treat, the entire experience was very memorable. Thank you to the staff for the amazing food and service.

Carnevor is not inexpensive, but they deliver very well. I was impressed with the server's suggestion, based on my comments, that my ribeye be prepared as "medium rare Plus." It worked out perfectly. The sides of mashed potatoes and spinach were very well prepared and each enough flor two diners.

I have dined at Carnevor quite a few times over the years. Carnevor's waitstaff are well trained and provide excellent service. Love the ambiance. This most recent visit was to celebrate a birthday and we all felt like we were given special attention, making sure our celebration was memorable.

Carnevor is amazing. I would recommend them to anyone looking for supreme service, food, ambiance, and a top notch selection of spirits, wine, and beer. I also can’t say enough about the absolute best steak ever for me, the 60 day, dry aged ribeye.

Awesome experience. Food and service were excellent. I just don't know how your can get much better than Carnevor. We have eaten in 5 star restauranta all over the world and it just doesn't get much better than Carnevor. Food, service, selection. They have it all. Ask for Stan. He was our waiter and pegged us right from the moment we sat down. He met our every need before we asked and was attentive, but not intrusive. We will be back!

Have gone to Carnevor several times over the last few years to mark special occasions and each time has been amazing and the service has exceeded expectations. Except this time. This time however was very different. We were seated on the sectioned off area behind the bar, which I’ve never sat at previously. Clearly this area hasn’t been taken into consideration much for the guests experience. It was extremely cramped, dark and awkward. Tables were just crammed into too small of an area. Trying to even get to the table. You had to ask someone who had no room to move, to move anyways just to get by. Even doing that you still have no choice but to bump into that person and the table next-to or behind them in order to get past. The service was extremely spotty at best from the server. It’s Valentine’s Day, planning and adding additional staff for a restaurant of this caliber should be standard practice. It’s never a good sign that you see the busser and service staff more often than your own waiter. Also hearing about things from other waiters at different tables that were never told or mentioned is kind of irritating. By far the worst service that I have ever received in the 10 plus times dining here. The food though was delicious as always. This time the service provided left us disappointed and open to trying other restaurants for getting a better experience. Most likely will try other steakhouses moving forward. Was my favorite restaurant but now open to exploring.

Excellent service and steaks.
Drinks a little overpriced but good.
Restaurant looks nice on the inside. I was expecting a little more upscale look.
Small tables and seating a little cramped in some areas. Overall positive experience.

Honestly, the rave reviews this place has received are 100% correct. Now be ready to spend some money but everything is worth every penny you spend. Very upscale dining and every bite is absolutely delicious. I can’t wait to go back and try so many more options on their menu.

As a frequent business diner in MKE, Carnevor is by far one of, if not my preferred dinner spot. Whether alone at the bar, with colleagues, or business partners, everything about it is of highest quality. Add to that, having valet parking is a terrific convenience. Don’t be deceived by the exterior, surprises await just inside. I can’t wait to go back to Carnevor, umm, I mean to work. Pricey to be sure and the quality and experience is on par.

An amazing dining experience ( as always) the only thing that was better than the steaks was the outstanding service and hospitality Of everyone from the valet , host, servers , runners and the manger Mark! A true dining experience and a place that exceeds the expectations of what the hospitality industry is all about! Thank you to the staff at Carnevor and Surg group for the exceptional evening.

The octopus salad was great but a small portion as was the spinach. The service and ambiance were fine but the dining room was noisy. The ribeye steaks were very much over salted. The meat was very tender but hard to cut with the dull steak knives!
