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. Let's start with the service: Excellent service all the way around, from the greeters to our waiter to the serving staff. Only compliments to them. The restaurant in its new location: Mercy, for a high-end... More

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.

Wonderful service! The filet will melt in your mouth. The grilled octopus was fantastic. The wedge salad they will bring out to you chopped, if you wish, and was perfect. A great place for all!

We had supper at Carnevor on Sunday evening, 11/12/2016. We ordered the Petite Fillet with the wine sauce and it was excellent. The meat was tender and done exactly to our request.

Being from Chicago we know a good quality Steakhouse. The staff was excellent. Both knowledgeable and fun and timely with courses. Wine selection was great as well. Salads were fresh and tasty as were the brussel sprouts. We both had the Filet's which were cooked to perfection at medium rare. I had the Au poivre sauce which was very good.... More

We chose Carnevor as our 35th wedding anniversary choice this year and we were completely happy with our choice. I read a couple of the recent reviews and could hardly believe that we were in the same place. We did dine there on a Wednesday evening and it was rather quiet, but a decent amount of patrons. Service at the... More

Description
Milwaukee's premier steakhouse, Carnevor is one of Wisconsin’s most acclaimed fine dining destinations. A restaurant consistently topping year-end “Best Of” lists, Carnevor has been lauded for its variety of culinary tastes – from our luscious barrel-cut beef to mouthwatering New York Strips and bone-in fillets. Our steak menu offers exquisite wet- and dry-aged USDA prime beef – a distinction afforded to less than two percent of all American beef – as well as daily selections of the coveted Kobe, imported from Japan to guarantee the most succulent and tender waygu. And with a wine list featuring more than 400 selections, you’ll always find the perfect bottle to uncork with your meal. But it’s not merely the “meal” you’ll enjoy at Carnevor. It’s the entire experience: service, music, menu, and more. To top it all, herbivores are always welcome.
Please call restaurant to arrange large party reservations.
