Carnaval Brazilian BBQ Ratings and Reviews

Food was absolutely fabulous. Appreciated the great table since we were visiting the city from Cleveland, Ohio.
We have a similar restaurant where we live and I would have to say thus surpassed what we expected.
Thanks for the great service and great evening.

Service was wonderful, all workers were nice and welcoming, the food is one of the best you can really ask for, you get your hunger away for a while and not really have to roll out of the restaurant, the quality is rare a this of the globe. I have visited lots of European restaurants in my life, witch is not an easy job to find a good one in our city, and ithe visit at Carnaval Brazil Bqq really reminded what is good quality. 5 stars!!

Was very disappointed in the ambiance. We came for our first anniversary and were expecting a much different setting. The room was filled with babies crying and the dining room felt very cramped and crowded. Would not recommend for a romantic meal for two.
Everything was lovely, from the service ...
Everything was lovely, from the service to the atmosphere to the food. There is only one thing that we noticed that would deter us from recommending the restaurant to our parents and perhaps others and that is that some of the meat was too salty (or perhaps over seasoned?). The meats were cooked perfectly and were very juicy however, we are not used to eating with a lot of salt and that was on thing we noticed. With that said, overall we really loved our experience at Carnaval. Our favorite meats were the sausages and the bacon wrapped chicken as well as the grilled pineapple with cinnamon.

I had a very awesome first time experience! Although the meat was salty it was still delicious! And water never hurts anyone so yummy!! My waitress was lovely and funny, she answered every question I had and every taste bud so I was happy :) it is a very amusing interesting most fascinating restaurant I have ever been too, I recommend this to anyone wanting to have a very special or new stunning experience.

Food and service was great. Big family birthday dinner. Pricey but worth it until I found out the waiter dug through one of our guests leftover box which was a vegetarian alternative and not the all you can eat Brazillian BBQ choice to inspect and remove anything that was not in her pasta dish. A bit of an offensive end to our expensive evening. Won't be back. Left a nice tip too.

The food was a 10!!!!! So happy we made the choice of trying you guys! We went for our 35th wedding anniversary ! The table behind us group of 7 got seriously loud, not sure if the women @ the table just had a bit to much to drink or what the case was..talking and laughing @ the top of their lungs. We actually left sooner than we we wanted...somewhat annoying ...but defiantly not your establishments fault. Was unfortunate for us though..☹️..but we will be back!!!😁

Bbq is exactly as advertised down to bbq pineapple (delicious) if you get first cuts you are getting rare. After each cut the meat appeared to be going back on the spit. So later cuts were more well done.
Less often the better cuts come. One lamb in 90 minutes vs chicken thighs almost every 10 minutes.
The free sides some good some not. Black bean stew was watery and tasteless. Good cesar salad. Fries are fries. Chef basket deep fried meat in crispy batter.
Arrive hungry. 2 hour time limit should be plenty.

Menu has broad appeal in the lounge/patio. Server was attentive, food delivered in a timely fashion. The plates were a bit awkward - long narrow rectangles - caused some "spillage." The outdoor patio is lovely - but our table needed to be cleaner. The food was tasty and reasonable - but the wine is a killer - our $77 cheque consisted of $33 in food - we shared 2 items and $44 in wine - the least expensive by the glass. MY advice - buy a bottle. Very pleasantly set.

Everything was delicious. There wasn't one thing the 4 of us tried that we didn't enjoy. Definitely going back. Service, food, atmosphere all great. Just a little pricey as most can't eat $50 worth of food but it was great experience anyways.

Food was fantastic even for a picky eater who only eats well done meat The only complaint was the temperature of the restaurant It was extremely hot and humid in there even though they had the AC at the lowest it would go I you plan to go do it when it's not hot outside otherwise you will roast

I went her for my wife's birthday, an I know we were a younger group of people but we got treated like wernt adults. about 8 of us all worked in the restaurant industries an have never seen worse service from the server.. you guys are lucky you charge that 18% gratuity because if it wasn't for that are server did not deserve a tip. we only had one or two rounds of drinks served to us an that was by us asking some other server an even then he was like oh I'll get your server mean while he's beside are table talking to his buddy, we could see him but he never acknowledged the fact that some of us had empty glasses... I jus have to say maybe you should get some better training in place for your servers cause you guys says your a higher end restaurant,I have to say his service was not high end. don't get me wrong the food an the guys serving the food took care of us.. but not having any drinks was pretty disapointing, won't be coming back that's for sure.

i have been there 5 times, the first 4 times was with a large group of people and the food was great and service was great and over all we had a very good time. The last time we came was just my girl friend and i and it was not the same. I wanted to treat my girl friend to some thing special for her birthday and it was anything but. The service was good but the food wasn't as good as all the times before. I would come back and try it again because it might have just been a 1 time thing. But my girl friend says for $150 dollars we could have done a lot better.

Our waiter took our salad order, he dropped it off and we didn't see him again until it was time to leave. We weren't offered any bread and we didn't see any on the menu.. We would have liked to have some bread and maybe a check by with our waiter?
Otherwise, the food was fantastic. Just as good as the Brazilian restaurants my husband and I have eaten at in Paraguay.
Would it be possible to have sample bowls of some of the sides...It seems a shame to get a big bowl of something and not eat it...(just a thought) Servers were friendly and professional..awesome service...will recommend Carnaval to everyone!

the rodizio was very good the garlic potates were a bit watery .
the service was spot on.
my regret is that i didn't ger around to the bbq ribs.
my friend jim is in love with his 65th birthday present.
(the Rodizio of course!)
I would consider offering dipping sauces for the meats offered.

The food was ok. Not the best barbecue we've had. Too salty and nothing to complement the flavors of the meat was offered. It was our first time and I had told this to our sever. A Brazilian friend said that most of the Brazilians he knows who tried it were disappointed. That it was far from what they had growing up. It's definitely an experience but it's not enough for us to want to come back.
