“Wonderful Experience”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

We had a great experience. We started with a few drinks at the bar,
Then we proceeded to our table. We order the crab cakes for an appetizer
we thought it was good. It would have been better if they made two small crabcakes rather than one large one. The bread they brought out had garlic and herbs were very good.
Our friends ordered scallops on the half shell. They loved it. We then moved to the lobster
Bisque which was divine. It was really good with just the right amount of seasoning. We both
Ordered the Fillet 8oz. It was prepared perfect. They had 8 different sauces to choice from.
I had the shitake mushroom with brandy. The steak was a good cut of stead, however it does
Appear a bit flavorless without one of their sauces. We all enjoyed the truffle potatoe
And the butternut squash risotto. “Excellent”. We had the chocolate truffle mouse for dessert
With marshmallow ice-cream. It was excellent. Overall the dinner was great, however make sure
To bring your wallet with you because you will spend a small fortune to eat here. Service was
Excellent and had a great time.

“Best Steak Dinner”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

My husband and I go to Carnevor to celebrate special occasions and we are never dissapointed. We are really spoiled to have such a great steak restaurant in Milwaukee. Whenever we have eaten steak at another restaurant, whether in Naples, or New York we always compare it to Carnevor!

“A PREMIUM STEAK-HOUSE”
Reviewed January 15, 2013

One of the best steak (newyork strip!) I'd never eaten, nice wine (australian shiraz) and very professional service. Average price.
The only thing I didn't like has been the light: too low, almost impossible to see into your dish.

“LOVED IT!!”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

The whole experience was amazing. Starting with great martinis and wine,my boyfriend and I chose a "special" platter to partake in a few different steaks with sauces. All three that we had were wonderful as well as the mushroom ragu which accompanied the steaks. Dessert was a decadent display of donuts with special dipping sauces. Not only was the food fabulous, the staff/servers we wonderful as well. Superb night all around!!

“Nice Staff, Cook Atmosphere , good food”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

The food was definitely nice. I don't think the steaks were to par with the top steak houses in town - but it came close. This is not a chain and it comes with creativity, cool interior design and super nice staff. There are some medium priced items on the menu which are excellent as well . I found the bar neon lights somewhat annoying to stay there for a extended period of time. Some spots are also noisy in case you want to have a conversation. So it is a very nice place - but does not quite live up to its expectation...
