We came in at 6 pm on a Friday evening. The meat came right away, but it was overcooked and dry.

Great idea and the food itself was of good quality. Service wasn't great, forgot my drink and one of my sides and I then had to wait for my change. Seemed overpriced for what you get unless you can eat a lot of food

I have been to the Carnaval in Vegas and it is much better then the Winnipeg location. The variety of food was a lot better. In Winniepg it seemed like we were brought the same meat a few times. The noise level was loud, I could barely hear my husband talking to me without raising his voice. The service was good, when she choose to come around. I don't think I would return here, not for the price we paid.

I had a friend with me from Toronto and she has been to a few Brazilian restaurants like Carnival. I had no idea what to expect. The food and service where excellent and I will definitely recommend this restaurant. She said everything was fantastic but the only thing missing was the option of having shrimp, fish (seafood). But both of us had a great meal, time and it was a great experience.

We had such a wonderful evening. The flavour of the food was second to none, our server was very friendly and made sure were well looked after, and I loved the Caiprihina. We have been there a couple of times before, and will definitely go back. Thank you Carnaval for a special evening on our Anniversary!

The service was excellent and friendly, however we found the food to be overly salted, and some cuts were tough and full of gristle. In my opinion the “value” did not justify the price.

we Appreciated the delicious meat and sides! Quiet atmosphere allowed us to have a conversation. My husband and I don’t eat a lot, so I’m not sure if we ate $55 worth each, wasn’t great value for us. But it was a good experience to try different kinds of meat. It was nice to try, but we won’t go again unless we get gift cards again. :)

I liked how quickly the food started coming. I was surprised at how fatty the cuts of meat were. Fatty and a bit over seasoned. But despite that, we still had a good time.

Absolutely mind blowing. You flip that card green and the meat just keeps coming. You take 2 bites and your plate is full again. Not for amateurs. 55$ a person you need to be able to eat and EXPECT the meat sweats after.

Make sure you bring a healthy appetite. Plenty of delicious cuts of meats. My only negative is that I couldn’t eat here often due the the slightly higher price to dine.

It was a good dinner on Father’s Day. Only complaint was that we had 5 adults who were looking for some cocktails and no one asked us. Instead 2 bottles of water were dropped off and that’s all. Not a huge deal but was a little odd. We were an early reservation so it wasn’t super busy.

This was not my first time there. I found the beef a little to raw and no flavor this time around and the pork fatty. The first time we went everything was bang on, but not this time. I guess its a hit and miss. I will try it again.

It was a great experience. First few cuts of meat were delicious. Moist, melt in your mouth tastiness. But salty. So, so salty.

By the fifth cut of meat or so the inside of my mouth was puckering from the saltiness. And unfortunately, all the red meat was seasoned the same so it all tasted the same. That was a disappointment.

Chicken was good, not great. A hair from the gentleman cutting the chicken fell onto my plate and that put me off a little. But it is what it is.

My husband and I both got a free dessert (although for a dollar we upgraded to a fancier dessert for a bit lighter fare after the heavy meat meal) and that was wonderful. Delicious.

Overall it was a fun experience but I wouldn’t go back. Too salty (I still feel the bloat today), not enough seasoning variety (even a sauce on the side would be nice!) and I truly don’t feel like we got our monies worth.

But woohoo for one of a kind first experiences with my husband!

It was a very hot day outside, so the restaurant upstairs was just as hot. Meat was hot, sides took a little while to receive, some meats were slightly over salted, but overall was still a fun night out!

It was our 5th wedding anniversary so we made a reservation at the lounge. When we got there, i asked the brtender if we can move to the patio as it's a beatiful day to enjoy. Bartender said any table is fine as there were only 2 other groups outside.. waited 10mins just to see the menu. And that was it. Bartender did not visit the table at all.. we waited 30mins to get our orders but he has no intention of attending to our table. I looked inside and it was an empty lounge. We just left and wasted 30mins of our time.

The food was good..but not all meats came around.
Friends told us about the grilled pineapple that came around when they dined here..we had to ask.
Our hostess was friendly but her food runner forgot about us and our hot food was cold, which the hostess offered us or we could wait for hot.
Overall it was okay. Not a must return place.
