This is one of the better Brazilian steakhouses compared to some that can cost twice as much for less. The meats kept coming, and each was full of flavor and great spices. The salad bar was very good but not decadent as in some places. The staff are very friendly and seem to enjoy working there. It makes for an... More

The quality is very good, the only issue I had was over salted meats. Definitely go for the pineapple as it was one of the favorites at the table. You will leave stuffed full of some great meats.

The food and service are very good. There's a salad bar with a great variety. Meats are brought to the table in traditional Brazilian style. We were a large group with a reserved room, provisions were made for a video to be shown & they served our cake at the end.

Food was outstanding and fresh. Even though we arrived early in the day, 430, the food came often and fast. Truly a great dining experience.

We first discovered Carnaval many years ago and it is our favorite restaurant in Sioux Falls. We occasionally make special trips (120 miles round trip) to eat here. They offer a wide variety of beef, plus lamb, pork, chicken, and pineapple. I recommend their Signature Beef - it is amazing! The servers are very attentive and pleasant - they will... More

I was traveling on business and had the opportunity to dine at the Carnaval Brazilian Grill. We started out with typical Brazilian pre-dinner drinks called Guipringa's (sugar cane alcohol, lime, ice and sugar). Very smooth and tasty. We then moved on to the salad bar, which was average at best. They had an assortment of pasta's and potato salads and... More

This was a fun family treat. Kinda pricey for a family of 4, about $140 including tip, but everyone had a great time and the choices were great. The fact that lamb is served was a bonus and the cinnamon pineapple was like dessert.
