Staff very pleasant. Checked on table often. The Snell of the meat on the rotisserie was too sure for as well as the sangria.

Everything was wonderful. Although I requested a window view and I was sitting by a wall and only my husband was sitting by the window .

We found the meat to be over cooked and dry. They came around 3 times with the same meat selections but had to ask for the pork ribs. The sides we received were cold when they should have been hot.
Ordered a glass of Malbec and the glass or carafe had a bug in it.

The excitement of sampling all of the meats was met with the realization that we were going to be full rather quickly. Deliciously prepared and fantastic staff. Would recommend and will return on my next visit to Winnipeg.

We've be in the past and really enjoyed it. This time, not so much. I guess I expect more than a table stuck in a back corner, by the server computer, when the bill for 3 people is just over $200. That did include 1 beer and 1 shot.
The meat was very salty and the pineapple now comes served on a plate :(
Our server was fantastic however

Amazing place to go. If you like it quiet go around 5-5:30. When we left around 6:30 it was really loud. Almost not enjoyable. Over all we had a great meal and had the place to ourself for about 45 mins. We both loved it and will return many more times. Thank You for making our night out without kids a great one!!

Very good! Had a slight problem with one of the new trainees trying to pass off an alcoholic beverage as "virgin" to my partner, but the staff handled it immediately when we raised the issue.

I had made a reservation for 8PM assuming my wife and daughter would be shopping for longer than they did.

We ended up there at 6PM. I asked if we could hang in the lounge and the Hostess took a peek and said if we would be out by 7:30 (they had a reservation for then) they could seat us now.

AMAZING service. The staff is always friendly and helpful. It was my 9 year old daughters first time there and she LOVED IT.

They were very accommodating and the food was good as usual. Yes, some of it was a "little burnt" as pointed out in some reviews, but that is BBQ! and also that is the best part!!!

While we cannot afford to go here regularly, it is always our go to place for special days!

Service was good, the waitress helped us understand how the food comes around. The meat was good, but the main reason I'm reviewing this is to say everything was salty. I love salty things, and I am the last person to complain about saltiness, but everything was oversalted. The roasted vegetables were so salty it triggered a gag reflex, it's like it was a mistake.

Excellent food. I especially appreciated the different types of steak options presented - and how well each was prepared and tasted! Excellent ambience and appropriate noise level with nice background music.

We felt it was a fair price at the seniors discounted price, however, a lot of the meat was just ok. Nothing great about most of it, a lot was overdone and dried out. The sides were also nothing special. Roasted vegetables were mushy, paella was hugely disappointing, basically sticky rice with a couple of mussels thrown in. Salads were excellent.

The lunch buffet had a very small selection for both apps and meats.
Would recommend training staff further and being more efficient with time.
Overall, for the price, really not worth it.

For that kind of price (especially for teens) and added gratuity for 8 or more ppl, I would have expected we would never have baked on meat on our cutlery, water jug and glass. I would have expected we would not be waiting 40 mins for our dessert delivery. Just a bunch of small details that did not add to the value or experience. I’ve tried it once, probably won’t be back.

Was seated half an hour late despite reservations. Our waitress never came around. Always had to ask the men serving the meat to go get her. Someone from my party slipped on grease they neglected to clean up. When we placed an order for more sides with our waitress we had to ask twice for it multiple times. Despite all these they still took a mandatory gratuity off the bill.

The food was great, but for me on average is a bit expensive and will only be able to visit on real special occasions.... a few times the waitress took too long to check on us (waited a long time to ask for our dessert and to ask for our check)

Loved the food and the ambience. Service was great. Only really two small "complaints"... 1) no name tags makes you have to wave for a sever and 2 ) chicken only came around twice and wasnt as generous as beef/pork/sausage.
Overall would send anyone here for a great meal.

Enjoyed this unique experience. Celebrated a birthday. The food was good - flank our favorite - sides good but focus was on the meat. We tried all that was offered. Service friendly and fast. We had a window seat but side facing so wasn't the best - would have preferred front view but reserved apparently and noted that as we appreciate our view those sitting at those tables were more focused on food and conversation and rarely saw any of them looking out the window. Disappointed at that. But otherwise overall experience very good. Appreciated the free gesture of cake for the birthday boy - were able to take it with us as we had a show to catch and had to leave. Would allow ourselves a little longer next time. Would recommend.

I love going to Carnaval. Food is amazing but I found during our last visit some of the meat was over cooked or dry. Everything else was what I expected, great!
