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.

    Hands down the best steak I’ve ever had. It was like velvet. You don’t chew it but rather you hope it stays as long as possible before the taste disappears. The bacon appetizer was also excellent. Don’t skip the donuts. Go there and be happy.

    My bride & I were in Milwaukee on quick trip, and as always, I was on the hunt for the best steakhouses around me. I chose Carnevor, other the typical Google search, because of their menu, since my favorite cut of beef happens to be dry aged ribeye. The longer aged the better. The space was dimly lit with unique décor. The hostess was visibly annoyed when I asked to be seated at a different table, I just choked it up to the ignorance of youth. We started with the maple glazed thick cut bacon and beat salad. I ordered the 60 day dry aged ribeye, my bride had the fillet and the grilled asparagus as a side, the steak were wonderful even if slightly over cooked. Service was outstanding and prompt, however, the staff struggled a bit with special requests. We highly recommend this establishment.

    I loved EVERY MINUTE of my time at Carnevor. The food was fantastic, the service and attention were first class. We celebrated our 11 year wedding anniversary and they gave us a special surprise dessert. 10/10. Completely recommend. We had the 8oz sirloin, twice baked potatoes and Brussels stouts with an amazing prisoner cab sav wine!

    Wagyu A-5 filet was out of this world!!!! The crab legs were stringy and somewhat tasteless. The oysters were tiny!! Service was fantastic. The $168 Wagyu filet was worth it for a special occasion! Melted in your mouth!! The lobster bisque was very good!!

    Overall meh. The food is good and something’s very good. The place is okay to look at but the service is sloppy. The price for what you get is okay but the service simply makes this place not worth it. Apparently you can pretty much wear anything and be seated.

    Just one small thing, the lights were turned down very low. Otherwise our experience was flawless as usual. Our server was Diana, we request her because she is that amazing. Extremely knowledgeable regarding wines and food recommendations. Carnevor made our anniversary special with the wine decanted at the table when we arrived and our own personalized menus. Special thanks to Mark H., manager, for setting everything up.

    For the price of everything the presentation was lacking. Personal preference, but the ambiance was way too informal for a $500 check.

    Will was our server and he was tremendous. The perfect degree of conversation and assistance. The food as always was prepared perfectly to our requests. We had the lobster bisque, shrimp cocktail, filet & ribeye with scallops, lobster Mac & cheese and truffle mashed potatoes, and donuts for desert. A great place place for an upscale dining experience.

    I went here for the first time for a special occasion, and while the server was very nice (and other workers prompt in removing plates/silverware and refilling water), the server wasn't as knowledgeable about the specials of the night. I'd overheard another server explaining several more specials than what she had told us, one of which I might have ordered had I known about it. Other than that, the steak was amazing, and the atmosphere was nice, even if the music was a bit loud.
