Went to dinner with friends. We had 730 reservations but got there early to have a couple of cocktails and met Addy, the best Bartender EVER! She had the best attitude, great wine knowledge and totally sold us on the lobster bisque, which was awesome. We were called to our table right on time but did not go because Addy... More

Had dinner at Carnevor with a group of 15 friends. Every part of the dinner was phenomenal! I'm from Texas so I'm not easily impressed by steak places because we have the best. Carnevor was outstanding and ranked at the top of the best of all time. The steaks were cooked perfectly and were flavorful. The lobster bisque was the... More

We went to Carnevor for a birthday dinner. From the moment we arrived we knew we were in for an amazing night. We used the valet parking option which was wonderful. We were about 30 minutes early for our reservation, so we sat at the bar and had a cocktail. When seated for dinner, the ambiance of the dining room... More

My very good friend and I went here a little over a week ago for her birthday. She has wanted to here for a while now. We sat at the bar. Had the best bartender, Addie. She made some great recommendations for some different cocktails rather than our usual go-tos. She really knew the menu and picked the perfect wine... More

If you want to try a steak like you never had, you must eat here. The steak just melts in your mouth. Appetizer are excellent and creme brulee is an awesome dessert.

We were here for business and absolutely loved everything about this place! First off - the atmosphere is perfect! It is not stuffy at all like some high-end restaurants can be...very trendy and very cool. Secondly - the food and service were out of this world. One of the most flavorful filets I've had. Everyone in our party raved about... More

The good and not so good. First off, my husband wanted to try Carnevor for this birthday as he just wanted a wonderful steak dinner.

Had dinner with a client. Great wine selection good beer selection. Sides were very rich and heavy. Filet was the best cut of meat I've had in years - prepared medium rare. Spot on and was a great experience. I will be back.

This is a superior restaurant. We pleased with the steaks, sides, and general presentation. Our server met our every expectation. The only drawback for this restaurant is the noise. A great disappointment for this class of restaurant.
