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.

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.
