We went here for a business dinner and was not disappointed. Our waiter was Oscar and he helped us with our choices. I had some ribs that were a great choice, others had the scallops. We all went away pleased with our choices.

I went to Carnivale for brunch! They had a back to school theme with a balloon making clown. The environment was delightful. Jerry, my server, was amazing! He had a great attitude and made superb recommendations for me. What a unique and fabulous experience!
