Great Food, Very Rude Staff

On a Saturday night, I recently took my wife and two other guests to dinner at Carnaval. We had reservations and were seated within 15 minutes after our reservation time.

We had the Brazilian BBQ where meats are brought to our table and sliced off as we specify. That in itself was a substantial value and was excellently prepared. They also have a menu that includes pizzas and various other meals. We could see that others were partaking of these as well. The service is exemplar and the atmosphere was... More

If you love meat this is the place to go have dined there several times and really enjoy it. We have done this several times with kids and they love it as well.

Had a business dinner here with three colleagues. Salad bar so-so. Good soup. Good choices of meats. The service (coming to your table with the meat skewers) was very fast. They did a good job of paying attention to the "green" or "red" coaster. I lived in Brazil for nearly a year, just coming back to the USA in AUG... More

The gauchos are friendly and eager to please. Try the coconut chicken and a side of grilled pineapple if ordering off the menu.

I treated myself to this restaurant for my birthday after reading all of the positive feedback here on TripAdvisor. It was outstanding and very enjoyable and I highly recommend it. BUT, COME HUNGRY!

I am from Southern California. I have access to great food at any given corner. Middle America is not so blessed. I was in Sioux Falls on a work trip. I found myself missing my local mom and pop shops. In a land of franchise and chains, this place surpassed my expectations. You got a lot of food for your... More

I have been to several Brazilian grills in the past while traveling to larger cities for work and this one beat them all. The meat variety was exceptional! They had three different options to provide more reasonably priced options; I chose the middle of the road (option #2) and it was a good decision. Some friends went with the cheaper... More
