There is nothing worse than being disappointed before sitting down. Why is it as a restaurant gets busy, the service gets sloppy. We have been going to Carlos' for years, pretty much, monthly. Our daughter came to visit with her fiancée, for her birthday. We had made a reservation for 6 in there bar area. I had asked for a... More

Often look to this facility when I want a special Occasion celebration or just a "I want bo be special" Authentic Brazillian food but also other items on the menu, either will be good and well presented. A bit pricy for the area. Great early summer / late fall patio meals when the sun is not so hot, just do... More

This restaurant is very special. We have ate at Carlos' many times. This is our favorite restaurant for special occasions. We have never had a bad meal. Everything we have had on their menu is excellent. We love the house salad dressing. I am having trouble the selections on this review. I select one then when I select the next... More

My wife and I have been here a few times. We had a great meal every time. The view is spectacular, especially if you get a seat by the window. One major criticism however. With a crowd, it's too noisy; the acoustics are awful.

The location is wonderful and views of the valley are wonderful. Staff and service is not as great as I would have hoped for and we have been there about 10 times over the last year. I keep hoping for more each time. Food is always on the mark. Good wine list.

We've been to Carlos several times with friends and it's always good food. We love the food, the wine and the setting on top of the hill. We go there, though, mostly because it's one of the few restaurants in town that is quiet enough to have conversation.

Suberp resturant that sits far above Roanoke with a fantasic view and an extensive international menu. The food is prepared beautifully and extremely appetizing. The service is impeccable. Great dining experience!

Met friends for dinner and we all raved about the food and service. We will definitely be going back. Salads are so crisp and house dressing is lick the plate tasty. We all had different pasta dishes and shared.

Very impressed that Roanoke has a restaurant of this caliber. The menu was extensive and more international than Brazilian. Very fine soups and mains. While I was not a fan of the house dressing, I was in the minority amongst my group. All the fish dishes were of excellent quality and expertly prepared. Good wine list and excellent service. Not...
