Fantastic ... I loved everything about this place
Amazing atmosphere filled with lots of color and vaulted ceilings. Quite possibly one of my new favorite places to dine!
Great Place For Every Event. And not as expensive as I thought considering the full experience. My fiancée was with me and she loved it. Great everything.
We had a wonderful dinner at Carnivale. We sat upstairs near the bar where there were not a lot of people. We had the Old Cuban and Mojito for drinks. For food we had the empanadas, videos, and arrachera. Everything was delicious and came out from the kitchen very hot. My husband is picky about steaks and he loved the steak and the sofritos. Highly recommend, we are never disappointed!
The server was excellent, the ambiance was awesome and the food was great!
Amazing place to take a date! Helped close the deal 👌
Great atmosphere. Please add more vegetarian options. Drinks are great.
This was my first time here. The decor is super cute and colorful. The food was incredible. We went on a Thursday afternoon and it wasn’t packed. Definitely planning my next visit already!
Everything was perfect!

The food was amazing and the service was superb. The drinks and the chocolate layer cake for dessert were mouthwatering.
Food and service was great. I will definitely go back again.
B day! Greatness
When you want exquisite cuisine, beautiful ambiance, and excellent food you go to Carnivale. Miguel our server was amazing.
We celebrated our anniversary and they gave us champagne on the house. Great experience! Excellent food!

Perfect Evening! Food was amazing, ambiance was great!
Great experience. Our server is fantastic 🙂
Great food and service as usual, will definitely come back.
My dates Lamb chops were well done when she asked for medium. A big flew in my drink and the waitress didn't even offer to replace it. I've been here before and had several great experiences. Not sure why this one was so terrible
It was just not a good experience and it had nothing to do with Covid-19 we had reservations but waited 10 mins before my fiance had to go and find someone. It was our first time and the food wasn't good. The atmosphere was gorgeous but no one helped explain to us really. Beautiful place just not the best service or food
Food was amazing!
Outdoor seating is first come first serve. Service otherwise was excellent. Great caipirinha.
Thank you for joining us on the patio this weekend. We appreciate your feedback and are pleased that you enjoyed one of our signature cocktails (and Brazil’s national cocktail) while dining with us. We hope to see you again soon.
Great to be out in a restaurant again! Everyone had masks and we had an enjoyable evening of great food & drinks, plus attentive service!
Great experience, service and food. The staff was very attentive and the food was delicious!
We had a great time at Carnivale! Right when we entered we were greeted and they provided a mask for us because we didn’t bring one. Next we were met by the manager (Maria I believe was her name) and when she found out it was our first time there she brought us complimentary Guacamole, which was great! Our server was great and he gave us some recommendations and the food did not disappoint! Bathrooms were really clean (which is important to me) over all we had a great experience!
Adriana, We are so glad that you joined us for dinner this weekend and that you had fabulous experience. We hope that this is the first of many more delicious dinners with us.
Lamb chops were awesome
