My wife's bother was visiting us and we wanted to show him a good time. Sooo, we went to Carlos for a lovely evening of good foodwith a refined ambiance. And Carlos delivered as usual. The food and the service were great. Her brother was impressed with the the entire experience as we have been on our past visits. Thoroughly... More

This place interests us because of the variety and flavor twists offered by so many of the foods. We suspect that the chefs are inspired to distinguish themselves and their cooking, and we appreciate it. Although the prices are above the norm for Roanoke, we think they are in keeping with the quality. We dine here on special occasions.

Had the pleasure of dining here during our stay. Though the restaurant is known as a steak house the staff was very accommodating to the vegetarian in me. The meal was scrumptious!

Four of us dined at Carlos Brazilian last night. We've eaten there many times before and never had a bad experience or even a not-great one. Last night, though, I had THE best steak I've had in many years. I asked that it be cooked 'Pittsburgh'--a.k.a. 'black-and-blue', a.k.a. 'charred rare.' It's hard not to overcook a steak doing it that... More

We've eaten at Carlos 3 times and each was a very nice experience. The service is quite good and the atmosphere is slightly dated but somber and enjoyable. The menu offerings are varied and offer something for everyone. Not a place I'd frequent with children but for a special occasion, its a winner. The bar offerings are fine with a... More

This place came highly recommended, but we were warned that it was "real expensive". Our finding was that it was an average-priced restaurant with some nice choices, particularly the daily specials. Each of the four of us had a different special of the day and every one of them was very, very good. We finished the meal by sharing a... More

Not sure why it is considered Brazilian but it is very good nonetheless. The food and service remind me of eating at a country club. The views are awesome. Be sure to get seated before sunset. The portions are generous. Make reservations to get seated on the windows. One of the best tiramisu I have ever had. Outside patio would... More

I have eaten here probably 15 times over the years. This restaurant has been on Electric Road (SR 419) in Roanoke County (just west of Tanglewood Mall) ever since I moved here in 1997. If you make a reservation with enough days notice, you might be able to get a window seat for an early evening dinner with a great... More

We've gone three times, twice to meet people and once because a friend had a gift certificate they didn't want to use. Im stumped- because the food on the menu looks American to me. I asked the waitress what dish is Brazilian and she pointed to one side dish item. The food was good, so I will give it three... More
