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.

Steak was excellent. Crab legs seemed like they were frozen and didn’t meet my expectations. Cocktails were so so. Caesar Salad and Tuna Tartar were solid. Lighting was bad as we were in the corner and it was hard to read menu.

This was our first time at Carnevor and the experience was very good. The steak and Ahi Tuna were both outstanding. The service was attentive and very professional. Carnevor has definitely earned a place on our “preferred restaurants” list.

Service was informative. Atmosphere was great and most importantly the food was incredible. We ordered the 20 oz ribeye with mini potatoes and the tomato mozzarella salad. Flavors were amazing! Hands down best steak we have ever had.

Took my wife here on a date because we love meat! The decor made us feel like we were in a cave about to devour our kill, it was wonderful! The food was a bit on the expensive side, but the quality was definitely there! Big ol bone in ribeye was the perfect choice for how the decor was! Definitely in my top 10 steaks

This place was beautiful. The ambiance was incredible very nice darker lighting really makes it for a nice date place. The bar was amazing and the bartemders and servers were all very nice and punctual. The wagyu steak I ordered was the best ive ever had and they gave us a desert for me ajd my girls one year anniversary. That was very nice. Im recommending this spot to everyone I know.

Did not appreciate the constant roaming of host/hostess obviously checking the status of diners. It's a small enough dining area and would be more tactful for them to ask the waiter/waitress. Did not feel comfortable enjoying meal or even finishing up with a cup of coffee with staff watching you!!

This is the only place that comes to mind for an expensive steak dinner in Milwaukee. Never have I been disappointed here and I doubt I ever will be. The Wine Sommelier picked a perfect wine for what My fiance requested. His choice was perfect wine for dinner with a approachable price., considering the extensive collection they have available.

Standing at bar waiting to be seated, employees off shift taking up seats and drinking with a colleagues who was drunk. Dinner was okay, steak was overcooked and the server never told us about specials for the night. Not what I expected at Carnevor. And the person who was over served at the bar came over to say hi to my date and fell in front of our table, not cool at all

This was our first time and it was our 11th anniversary, they sat us right in the middle when there open tables all around made it very uncomfortable for me and my wife, the waiter wasnt very greeting, when asked her to explain the special for the day she got an attitude about it. The steak was great but the sides were horrible never told us the mac and cheese was made with blue cheese and the double bake potato had corn it. Would not go here again.
