Salad bar was great. The main food was average but with high price. Too expensive for what you get..

Atmosphere is above average with noise at a level that allows some conversation. When busy, it takes some time to receive your "meat on a stick" from the various servers walking the floor. The buffet style salad bar has some good eats that compliment the main courses well. In general, cleanliness is above normal. The only downside to this establishment... More

There was a wonderful, fun environment with a full buffet and salad bar. All meats were brought to your table by waiters offering each new item. The meats were wonderfully prepared and there was even grilled pineapple with a sugar and cinnamon glaze. Very nice!

A very unique experience overall and delicious food. The different meats are very good. There is chicken, lamb, steak, and barbequed pork. The salad bar has many, many selections. The prices were reasonable... be sure to mention if you are a senior citizen. Great evening out. You won't regret it. My retirement party with girlfriends was held there. It was... More

We have never been disappointed with our dining experiences at Carnival. The salads and soups are exceptionally fresh and delicious. The Gauchos are knowledgeable and provide prompt service. We welcome the opportunity to take our out of town guests for a special dinner here.

Excellent atmosphere and staff. Attention to your needs at all times. It was wonderful to be able to hold a conversation without yelling across the table.

Went to this restaurant whilst on holidays in Sioux Falls and had a beautiful meal of gargantuan proportions. The gauchos were continuously delivering food to your table and the taste and quality of meat was nothing short of fantastic. Prices were reasonable and as you would expect.

Went because it was #1 on trip advisor. I can see why. It was an awesome meal! The house signature steak is phenomenal and the service is spot on.

Carnival has always offered a unique dining experience with Gauchos slicing great meats off a skewer. Unlimited delicious gluttony. But For the nights you want to eat lighter, consider the apps at the bar. The fish tacos, bacon wrapped stuffed dates, flatbread pizzas and other apps are all top notch. Aden and Ben (bartenders) will entertain you with their showmanship... More

Food was Good, it was our 1st time here and our Waitress was excellent she explained how everything worked and was very helpful, we enjoyed our time here, but it is very costly for a tableside buffet, it was 80 dollars for 2 people and we just had water with our meals, I will probably not be back just based...
