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.

Carnevor is a great steak place. It started with a very nice loaf of warm house made bread. Then a nice salad. The 45 day dry aged new york strip had excellent flavor, just a little more fat could have been trimmed from the outside. Carmelized brussel sprouts were great. My companion had the wet aged strip special which was also very good. Of note, most steak places slightly undercook for rare, medium, etc. Carnevor exactly as ordered. The decor is very interesting too

The new setting is a significantly more snug that the former location but the space overall looks like it sits quite a few more people. While the overall experience was top notch the seating arrangements we are bit claustrophobic particularly with the all the dark wood.

I would say good for groups and special occasions, less so for a romantic dinner out.

Had a 6PM reservation and was seated right on time. Will was our waiter and informed us of all the specials and gave us a great explanation of everything on the menu. My wife and son started with salad and I had the lobster bisque. Excellent soup with chunks of lobster. My wife had a filet with scallops, my son had the domestic Wagu beef, and I had the 20oz. wet aged N.Y. strip. All the steaks were prepared exactly how we ordered them and were tender and flavor full. We were celebrating our Son's 20th birthday and Will was kind enough to add homemade donuts for dessert, nice touch.

My expectations based on other reviews are read were high. However I was somewhat disappointed with the food. The bacon appetizer we we're told takes the longest and it was very overdone when it arrived. My husband's lobster bisque had an extremely fishy flavor and was gritty with some type of spice. His steak was done great however my veal chop was over cooked. The dessert was the best part of the meal. The service was excellent and the atmosphere was romantic and sexy. I just wish the food was better given the amount of money you pay.

We were greeted with open arms and asked if we had a special occasion. We were then seated at our table, promptly served our drinks shortly thereafter, and asked for an appetizer order. The rest of the evening progressed at a steady pace and the food was outstanding. Our party had both filets and ribeyes, each cooked perfectly and tasted sublime. Their dessert choices bring a sweet and savory end to a flavorful, filling meal. If you are looking for an exceptional steakhouse experience, feast your eyes upon Carnevor.

Carnevor offers a unique dining experience. Great bar scene and atmosphere. Carnevor takes you into a "Jungle Like" dining experience pairing with their menu. The restaurant offers a variety of wines from around the world complimenting their main entrees. Our server we quick and knowledgeable on the menu and specials for the day. He made sure we didn't leave empty.

If you are in the Milwaukee area and looking for a unique and different dining experience I would recommend dining at Carnevor.

Chad and his beautiful assistant at the bar while I was waiting for my business dinner companion to arrive was great explaining the huge scotch and bourbon selection and some of the special cocktails. Will was an excellent server with great suggestions on pairings that would work with the wine I had selected. We had large filets cooked perfectly with that great char crust. The sauce Will suggested worked perfectly to complement, not overwhelm, the flavor of our steaks. The Mac and Cheese ranks as the best I have had at ANY steakhouse - a mix of cheeses including just the right subtle amount of blue cheese. Our starter salads also featured some awesome vine-ripened greenhouse tomatoes which were a nice surprise for February in Milwaukee. Finally, the wine list is excellent and extensive, it has all types and price ranges well represented. The only negative was the noise level - people at the nearby tables were almost yelling across the table to each other which meant we had to also at times. However, the overall experience was excellent - this was my second visit to Carnevor this year and I am sure I will be back.
