Went there on a business trip. This is not a Brazilian Churrascaria. The dishes are by the plate. I have travelled to Brazil a lot over the last few years and this is the first meal I have had that was as good as some of the better restaurants in Sao Paulo.

He'd dinner on a Friday night. We were a little disappointed in the menu selection. At one point, I asked if it was an Italian or Brazilian restaurant. I understand that it says it's an International restaurant, I was looking for more of a South American menu. We had the Sweetheart Martini which tasted amazing! Great job to the bartender.... More

Took my wife last night to Carlos, Brazilian food just sounded good. We've been here many times over the years and it's typically pretty good. We made reservations and I suggest you do the same. The first table we had was in the bar area and we were beside a big table with multiple kids running laps around the tables.... More

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
