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

We drove 1.5 hours to meet family members at Carlos' and it was so worth it! The staff is welcoming and friendly. The view from the restaurant while the sun is going down is absolutely gorgeous. We had an excellent server; she was attentive, but not annoying. There were five in our party and every person enjoyed their meal. The... More

The staff are very friendly and professional. The food exceeded our expectations. The price was very reasonable. They do not gouge the customers. It was a business meeting. We had a large room in the back. It was great.

I've eaten at Carlos Brazilian on a number of occasions and have never been disappointed. The dishes are prepared to order and are pleasing to the eye once they arrive at the table. The staff is great and ensure that all your needs are met. One of my favorite dishes to get is the Feijoada which is a traditional dish... More
