Carnaval Brazilian BBQ Ratings and Reviews
My wife and I came for our anniversary and I feel like we may have booked our reservation a little early. Some of the chicken entree's were quite dry and a couple of the meats as well. As more groups started to come in the meats got much better.
Many of the items said "Kosher salt" on them but the prevalent taste of the meat itself was very salty.
The roasted vegetables we ordered seems more like they were run through a microwave instead of any actual roasting.
The garlic mashed was fantastic and as I said later meat servings were significantly better then the ones when we first arrived.
Was the first time there so we did not know what to expect.For the meat part the food was fairly good.The sirloin that I had was tough,ribs had too much sauce,the lamb had a lamb taste.The rest of the meat was good,enjoyed the prime rib.The side dishes we ordered,the rice and the potatoes were good .We had the roasted vegetables which were raw and the salad was not mixed but just had the dressing poured over the top but not mixed.For a person who does not eat much meat would not make any use for them to go.It was an experience but would not go again .Thank you
Overall we loved the food and it was a fun experience for all of us, being something different than the ordinary, so thank you!
However, there was a bit of service and treatment lacking. First, the phone call I received in response to a change I made to my reservation online was unprofessional. The female did not even confirm it was me on the phone before speaking about my information. Overall, changes made properly.
Second, on my online reservation I specified it was a birthday dinner for my dad, and, that we had a gluten allergy and would need recommendations for this. Our waitress did not seem to be aware of either of these points. When asked about gluten friendly food items, she crossed off the MAJORITY of meat items on the list. This upset my partner, and ironically he was the only one in our group that had been there before and was accommodated exceptionally, which he regularly boasted about. The waitress was very sweet but claimed that they “were not sure” about some of the items, so chose to cross them off rather than double check on the ingredients. It turned out that the ingredients in the Montreal steak spice ARE gluten free and this should have opened up more options on the menu, but they were left crossed off. My partner then chose to ask the males serving the meat directly, and they were able to clarify a lot faster. A HUGE suggestion I would make is to keep your menu up to date for gluten friendly meats, and make everyone knowledable and receptive to this information. For the high prices offered, its not fair that 8 out of 12 meats are crossed off due to lack of knowledge. This a growing concern for many places and some even go so far as to have one person, usually at the management level, come out and discuss with the patron. This would make the value IMMENSELY higher and the experience even more amazing. It seemed a bit.....immature to be honest.
Took a while to get our drinks/appetizers but the food was fantastic.
We liked how they brought the meat to our table on swords.
The "meat servers" were very knowledgeable and because we went earlier in the evening if we wanted a specific item (like the cinnamon pineapple) they brought it right away.
Might seem expensive, but we definitely ate about $50 of meat each.
We had a reservation for 4 people & none of us had ever been there before. The absolute best place I have ever been to for dinner! Out waiter was amazing & the waiters who would bring the meat were kind & patient! It is a bit pricey at 53.00 a person but I promise completely worth it. Thank you to everyone there who made all 4 of our experiences great .... we will definitely be back 😊
This restaurant is over priced and not that special. We ordered three side dishes. The polenta was cold and so hard once could have broken a tooth, the roasted vegetables were roasted to a mush, but the tomato/hearts of palm salad was very good. The meat all tasted the same to me and, if you had an outside cut, it was way too salty.
We enjoyed our dinner however we made a point of telling our waitress we were headed to a MTC play imagine our surprise when we get to the play open the program to see that they have a promotion of $30 each rather than $50 something if you show your play tickets. This was a disappointment.
Some people have complained it was too salty, they bring multiple skewers of meat around and we have found the odd one that has more salt than we care for, but most has been very good.
We took an early booking so the restaurant was not very full, The gauchos were lining up to serve us and we had to put a hold on the food, we had full plates in no time.
Overall we like this restaurant as it is a lot fun.
Food was delishious as always. Servers were fantastic and always aiming to please. We had a groupon coupon that brought the price down a little. $84 instead of tge regular $134 for two with 1 beer each. A little salty be still good food. Left with very happy tummies.
The price is up there unless you have the ability to eat helpings of meat beyond the average carnivor. My wife and even smaller sister in-law definitely overpaid, I probably ate my moneys worth sitting at 208lbs. The food is amazing and overall a fun experience.
The food was absolutely amazing, the server was polite and we were given prompt service. The appetizers and drinks were provided really quickly and the guys bringing around the entrees were polite and knowledgeable.
Was probably the best experience I’ve ever had at a restaurant, we will be back!
Excellent value if you are a 60 plus senior, otherwise a bit pricey. You really can eat all you wish with many sides in addition to the main meats. Great way to sample a lot of different meats at your own pace. Cap sirloin was my favourite with a yummy salty BBQ rub.
One of our party wanted to eat from the lighter menu. We were told that she would have to sit on the main floor rather than with our party. Terrible recommendation. Also, need to have access to a meat course without paying for all you can eat. Some people just can’t eat that much.
The service was great in terms of not having to wait for drinks and they took our order for out sides right away though. I did find though that you had to ask for the special cuts such as lamb as they were not bringing it around readily.
The restaurant was busy and loud, but it was definitely fun. The best cuts were the Lamb, prime rib, and sirloin. The Polenta was tasty although the grilled vegetables lacked flavouring and crunch.
Overall it was a good experience and I would go back.
We were celebrating our wonderful friends 30th Wedding Anniversary. We got seated right away, got drink orders taken immediately and our first round of meat came. Our waitress took our sides order and everything was fantastic, tasty and hot. Would definitely recommend to friends and family. It was a lovely dinner out.
Carnival was a fantastic date night experience, it is definitely worth the price for the all you can eat option. The food was so delicious, we have never had such amazing tasting meats, it's an art the way they cook it and serve it, we are very impressed and will for sure be going back very soon. This place is a hidden gem in Winnipeg .
