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.

    Stan was our server and he was spot on with every recommendation. On top of that, I have been to pretty much every top ranked steak house in the country - and the Australian Wagyu Filet that was prepared for me was the best steak I have had. I cant wait to come back next time I am in town.

    If you are looking for an amazing steak, with an excellent wine list and great service, you can’t go wrong with Carnevor! The truffled frites are addictive. And their donuts for dessert are the perfect ending.

    Very dark, loud steakhouse. The steak was delicious, but lukewarm at best, as were the twice baked potatoes. Salads were nice and crisp (Caesar and blt). Will, our server was terrific, very personable and knowledgeable. I feel like the steak was a bit pricy compared to others in the city.

Possibly the best we have ever had. Give yourself and your special someone an unforgettable experience and dine at Carnevor. You will NOT be disappointed.

    Top level food and service. I had the 60z A5 and it was awesome. The steak risotto is a must pick side. They have a great wine list and the knowledge to help select. Ali is a server we have had a few times and she is amazing, although the entire staff it top notch.

    Very off putting. I made a reservation for 5 and we were clearly put at a 4 person table so it was very cramped. We entered when the restaurant was mostly empty and when we asked to move we were told the tables open needed to be kept for a large party. Well- they say a 2 person there who stayed long after us. Then while eating the service was so rushed. Constantly the servers were trying to clear our drinks and plates before we were finished. Lastly the steaks weren’t even cooked right. One medium rare was rare and another medium.
