My family and I come here every Christmas and anytime we are in SD visiting our family! We love the food and the atmosphere here. The meet is always amazing as is the salad bar... I like my meat more on the med-well side and normally they are very good at bringing that out, this past visit a few days... More

My boyfriend made these reservations MONTHS in advance and he was able to put that we were celebrating our anniversary. I'm so glad he did! The food was beyond words and was so perfectly cooked nothing can ever compare! At the end of our meal our waitress had told us she was keeping dessert a secret. She simply brought out... More

My wife and I travel around the U.S. on a regular basis for work visiting many States each year. While traveling we love trying unique and delicious restaurants in each region, but Carnaval Brazilian Grill in Sioux Falls, SD is always our favorite. There is so much variety, and you get to try a little of everything! All of the... More

Event though busy, got to our table 5 minutes early. Drinks were quick, salad bar was good, meats came early and often. Never had a bad piece of meat, always hot. I had the full Rodizio which included the shrimp and cod and my wife went with a lesser option but had plenty to choose from with a great, but... More

My wife, 10 year-old daughter, and I enjoyed another very pleasant evening at Carnaval! As always, the food was delicious, the music provided by Kyle Knutson was great and the service was outstanding! Thanks to Diana and the servers who made sure our plates were never empty! One note to a previous reviewer: if you want additional amounts from a... More

We have lived in the area for years but never taken the opportunity to dine at Carnaval. We were very pleasantly surprised by the experience. It could have been all the choices, or it could have been the great service (our server was amazing...wish I could remember her name). Be hungry, make a reservation, take your time and experience the... More

Yes the food is great. I was here on business and was referred to Carnival by another Trip Advisor user who suggested we eat here. For the $21.00 cost plus drinks and dessert for one person I have mixed feelings. We went in a Wednesday night and they weren't busy but since we didn't select the option with the most... More

The food here is to die for. It may be a little expensive but it is worth it. Splurge on the buffet!

Great food , Great Service. They specialize in meat, and not just steak. Although I must say the steak is great. The Ribeye is a pound and the Tenderloin is half that. It's done just the way you like it and the salad bar is quite extensive too. If you plan on putting your self into a food coma, this... More
