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 food was delicious! For 6 of us though, the price was really out of control, in our mind. Especially knowing how many other really good steak houses there are in town.

Great steak and service. Fine wine and atmosphere. It's a bit pricy but worth it.
I will go back. Enjoy.

Both the food and service were top notch. Reasonable full-bottle of wine options from $40 on up. Steak was incredible.

We arrived for 830 reservations at 815 and were told to wait in the bar and that they would come and get us. My wife had a signature cocktail for $16 and said it absolutely wasn't worth the money. At 835 I went back to the host stand and was told they would seat us immediately.

Our server was not great. We still had our drinks from the bar and he said he would be back with bread and water. After several minutes I had to ask for the bread. I will say, when we received the fresh baked bread, it was delicious and the herb butter was fantastic.
Based on server recommendation we ordered the bacon appetizer. The flavor was very good, but it was a little tough.
We overheard specials being presented to another table, and when our waiter came by for our order, I had to ask for them. Comparatively, his delivery was very flat compared to what we had just overheard.
I ordered the 45-day dry aged strip, my wife the 20 oz bone-in ribeye. For the table we got the truffle mashed and the asparagus.
My steak was very flavorful and cooked excellently. My wife's steak was also cooked well and was tasty. It was nice to be able to taste significant difference between the two steaks. The truffle mashed were OK, but mostly mashed potatoes with truffle butter on top. The asparagus was a large order and cooked just right.

TL/DR: The food was excellent, but the service was lacking, which may have been just our particular server
