Fabulous food and great atmosphere. Service was superb. Always a wonderful place to eat! Took out of town family here and they were equally impressed.

My daughter wanted to eat Brazilian food for dinner. she searched it up, we stopped on the way to Boston, MA, and the food was wonderful. I am glad we stopped here. nice palm tree painted on the wall, view looking over the city night lights, all together a bit expensive but was wonderful experience.

Christmas Eve Eve dinner was excellent! Chicken and shrimp scampi with angel hair pasta for me and steak with potatoes for my son. The house salad dressing is always yummy as is the tiramisu. Our glasses never went empty.

The menu offers an eclectic collection of dishes. Be adventurous and treat your palette to something new. Try for window seating and enjoy the view

The food was not horrible but for the price I expected something so much better. The service was good. Just a little disappointed.

We dined here with another couple. The meal was very good and the service was excellent. Our server certainly knew his job and timed our courses perfectly. I don't believe in automatic tipping, but this gentleman earned every bit. As i mentioned, the meal was very good, but not really special. The quality reflected the prices closely. That being said,... More

Please don't shoot me. We visited Carlos today for an early dinner. It was great BUT a "country mile" from excellent. First off, it is overpriced. Similar to "Olive Garden" but, and I know this is just my opinion, the food at "OG" just taste better. The The salad served before our entrée consisted of mixed greens with a few... More

With lovely views of the Blue Ridge mountains, Carlos offered good food and fairly formal setting which lent itself to a business dinner. The Brazil 2001 is their specialty with beef pork sausage and chicken in a merlot sauce was almost too much food. Service was excellent.

I've always liked the food at this restaurant and accepted the prices as justified for an excellent meal. However, this meal was overpriced AND not up to par. How about $37.95 for a filet mignon? And $78 for a bottle of Pinot Noir that retails for $30? Plus they have cut out many of the sides that you would expect... More

Not awesome,not wonderful experience. This is our third time having dinner there and won't go back. Prices are on the higher side but not unreasonable,but not worth what they charge for their mediocre food. The chicken and salad was nothing special,I could have made it at home and believe me I am NOT a great cook! I find the big... More
