  • We visited the restaurant on my recommendation to some friends and family. We were all happy with the food. Only problem was trying to get the attention of the servers and it was at lunch on a Saturday and was not all busy. This was the 3 visit for me and 2nd for my friends and family. Our previous visit was for dinner and the buffet part had improved very much and the entertainment was excellent. I would recommend this restaurant who loves grilled meat and variety of salad items and antipasto items.

  • Order: All you can eat grilled meats and salad buffet with hot items which were very good

  • Too much hype - first of all, the music was way to loud couldnt hear my husband conversing with me
    the meat dishes were way too salty-& definetly not worth $50 per person the buffet sucked big time there was not much there, there was no liquor license , also the entertainment 2 girls dancing disturbing people who are trying to eat they kept coming over to ask you to dance
    the only thing we enjoyed was the husband & wife singing in the band they played good music & also dessert was ok
    the service we saw the waitress 2 times when we first got there for out drink order & when she brought the bill - we had another waitress help us because ours was no where to be found & the place want even busy!

  • we were in this past weekend for celebration dinner. awful awful awful. the dancers were good. the band was good. the bathroom smelled terrible. the meat was way overcooked and too salty. the buffet was a total mess. disgusting. food was unrecognizable and the servers didn't know what any of it was. forget this plavce and visit the red violin on the danforth instead or better yet, cook a steak at home and put some good brazilian music on your cd player.

  • I don't know why I keep torturing myself over this place. Is is horribly consistent, again. I have been visiting for quite a while. The only thing that seems to change here is the management. I don't know whose fault that is. It improved greatly early on in the year with many welcome additions to the buffet. HINT: check out the spicy chili potato salad, amazing! While some of the additions were not Brazilian they were certainly much better than what we had seen in the past. So visited quite a bit this winter to watch where things headed. Food improved for a while. Alcohol service is suspended, just like their license has been. Meat never changes. Imagine my surprise the past two times I have been in. Things are back to the way they were before the holidays. Buffet stunk, meat was way overcooked, and not even a beer to be had to wash it all down. My wife enquired about the changes, again, and was informed that management had changed, again. We both wondered, that if it isn't broke, then why fix it?

  • Order: Stella, but NO liquor license

  • My family has visited Carnaval many times as we are Brazilian and enjoy the rodizio. The first few times we were thoroughly disappointed with the food, ambience, and service. I took my wife again on Valentine's Day only to be told at booking my table that the restaurant was under 'new management.' Again! While hesitant at first I was pleasantly surprised by how vastly different everything was: from the music to the food to the amazing desserts. We have been back a few times since Valentine's and have mostly been pleased. EXCEPT I brought some family in this past weekend that were visiting from Brazil. Things were back to their already terrible place with poor food quality, poor service, nonexistent management. I don't know what happened. Things appeared to be heading in the proper direction, upward, for a short while. Unfortunately things are now heading in the opposite direction, downward. Only one comment for those of you considering a visit here: look elsewhere. ANd avoid at any cost.

  • Order: Dinner buffet.

  • A few weeks ago I had the misfortune of taking my family for the Saturday dinner buffet at this dump. Carnaval Grill is, by far, the worst restaurant we have have ever been to. The price was outrageous, the food was terrible and the service was non -existant. I wish that I could rate this place lower than a 1 because it does not deserve that high a recommendation.
    Just plain AWFUL !!!!!!!

  • The food was raw and the service was horrendous. Dont ever visit this place because its not worth the money you pay. I was still hungry when I left the place and its no wonder why not many people were there for the new years party they are a big scam.

  • We were seated in the middle of the bar with people standing over us. There was NO food in the salad bar the entire night, even though we complained numerous times. Our waitress ignored us, the meat servers ignored us, the meat was fatty and undercooked. We were there for over 2 hours and hardly ate anything. When we complained, we got yelled at. NEVER GO TO THIS RESTAURANT. Waste of time and money.

  • Cam in and the place was empty, probably because of the construction outside. People thought it was closed, I know I did. My friend was late in coming so I said that I was going to wait outside, because she might not even show. Instead they said, no please sit and wait for her. I said I might not stay, they said not a problem. Sat me down, gave me water and appetizers right away. Waitress said not to worry it was on the house, even if I had to leave she wanted me to try the food.

    Well things got better our waitress explained everything to us and we had a very good meal and experience. We ended up staying for almost 2 hours and not once did they rush us.

    Not sure if the food is the same as the other famous Brazilian Grills, but I was impressed. They are new and working on the concept, so I will give them another try for dinner.

  • Order: Came for the buffet, which is the concept of this restaurant.
