First time there, we went on the day the city pretty much shut down. Definitely happy we went. Our server was awesome, very knowledgable and great recommendations. I'm always hesitant to order steaks at "steak houses" around the city because I usually grill better at home. Despite that, we went for the Wagyu beef and Tuna steak. Both were awesome! Spending the extra on the Wagyu was definitely worth it.

From the moment you walk into the restaurant you feel like this will be a different dining experience. The service is professional and personal, the food is above Winnipeg standards with the steaks being the best in the city hands down.

The quality of the steak and the cook of the steak were excellent! The only request would be for some additional vegetable side options.

This was my Facebook post, along with a photo of lamb and gnocchi: "Carne is one of those rare dining rooms where you can expect perfection..." I rated everything as high as possible on Trip Advisor. Brian contributed to our delightful evening of wonderful food, wine and atmosphere. And my 'sweet Cosmo' was perfectly sweet!

Beef Carpaccio was great but just little bit of salty, seared diver scallops was well done, tender and juicy, too bad that I only stolen one from my friend’s plate 🤫, and the tenderloin was super super good. Definitely will go next time to try the Wagyu & A5. See you soon😋

Good food and good service. Only issue was they knew it was our anniversary but chose to seat 3 large men next to us about 10 min after we got there. So now we trying to have intimate dinner and 3 large men next to us, one of which was belching loudly multiple times. Kinda killed the night. Looked like manager was the person who chose to seat them beside us. Not well thought out by him. We would likely not return as a result

This was our 4th time to the restaurant and have ordered waghu beef each time. this is the 1st time it did not meet past standards. it was always so tender and flavorfull that one didn't even need a knife. this past time it was difficult to cut and it was pretty chewy. Two others ordered eye of rib medium rare and it was rare. It was also chewy. for the price, the value was not there.

We loved Carne Italian Chophouse. Five stars for every category. Our server, Hunter, was knowledgeable, gracious and efficient. He made it all special. Oh, and the steak, you will not find better. Anywhere. Cooked perfectly and served on a warm, not Chernobyl or Vesuvius, plate.

There were three of us dining at Carne, the scallops, tuna tartar, caprese salad, rack of lamb, and bone in rib steak were all very good. My daughter, however ordered the 8 oz, Wagyu ribeye, which was on a completely different level, it was outstanding. Next time I go, I will definitely order Wagyu beef. As good as the food and ambience were, the evening was really made by our waiter, Dale. He was very friendly, professional, knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor.

Steak was excellent
the pasta was equivalent to boston pizza, not very good in my opinion.
Gnocci was good
Brussel sprouts, fantastic
Prawns were cooked perfectly
Calimari was overcooked/rubbery.

This was our first visit and it won’t be our last. The food was fantastic and the service was even better. Our server overheard my daughter talking about her birthday and surprised her with the dessert of her choice on the house. It was really lovely and not at all expected.

It was our first date in years and I wanted steak. He said he heard Carne was good. So we tried it out and it was spectacular. I couldnt stop eating but I also couldnt finish it.

Overall, service and food was amazing. The bill was alittle high but what do you expect for perfectly cut and cooked steaks. Best first date ever.

Thank you so much!

I had the Alberta waygu filet. Not that I’m an expert, but It was better than any Japanese waygu I’ve ever had — the worst of which was merely great. Service was attentive but not intrusive.

A wonderful venue with great food and excellent service. In a city with an embarrassment of riches when it comes to great restaurants, no list would be complete without including Carne Italian Chophouse.
A perfect night out.

The food was too notch. The service was too notch. They're set up is a la carte, which has its merits, but does add to the overall price. If price isn't a concern, then it's well worth your time. Great for special occasions!

Excellent food and service. We had potato beef and wild pacific halibut as entrees, accompanied by Brussels sprouts and the spaghetti. Unfortunately a fire alarm went off (falsely) for about 15 minutes, which was annoying but not a major detriment to an otherwise perfect evening.

Went to Carne for a birthday dinner and it was awesome. We had the new york steak and the USA wagyu and they were perfectly cooked with a perfect sear. One of the best steaks I've had. Sides were top notch, had the gnocci, brussel sprouts, and the mushrooms - perfect combo. Definitely recommend trying this place out

We have been to Carne many times and every time is always fantastic! Food is exceptional as I have tried many items on the menu and all meet and beat my expectations. Staff is always friendly upbeat, right from the host/manager as you walk in to the waiters and waitresses from beginning to end. The restaurant is nicely setup and always very clean. I highly recommend this restaurant!

My husband and I were there to celebrate our anniversary. Host and server were very friendly and inviting.. explained menu items. We shared the beef tenderloin and hylife porterhouse with shared roasted potatoes and seasonal asparagus. All good came out flavourful, tender and well seasoned. Brought leftovers home and had enough for lunch next day.

I was there on Saturday June 1st celebrating a birthday. This was my first experience at Carne, however i have dined at all the other WOW! concepts and all of them do a great job! The entire evening was great.

The service was prompt and our server was great and always gave us exactly what we needed. The food was delicious, we really liked the idea of shareable sides.

If there was one critique that i have, which is not a big deal at all, but we did notice that the table beside us was offered a complimentary dessert because they were celebrating a birthday and we were not. I understand servers do get busy, and sometimes the opportunity to ask why a table is dining with you may not arise, but it was also put down in the reservation details.

Again, not a big deal but as a restaurant that I'm sure sees a good amount of diners celebrating birthdays, anniversaries etc. i would suggest making a more conscious effort to find out why your guests are dining with you.

I do want to close with that, we did have a great evening, and this small criticism won't deter me from dining here again. Thank you for the great evening!
