This Brazilian restaurant is not your typical venue with heaping piles of smoking meat hauled around by wait staff. This is an entre based restaurant with lots of seafood (and meats). It has a great view of the mountains, efficient staff, and a pretty good wine list. I had a pork dish that was submerged in some sort of additional... More

Our server was so knowledgeable of everything on the menu and rattled of the specials like a pro. The food was incredible - baked Brie, veal Marsala, and Bleu Cheese NY Strip. The view went right along with the food. Carlos' sits on the side of the mountain with a patio and two dining rooms overlooking Roanoke. Simply beautiful at... More

Visited this restaurant today with a couple friends. The restaurant sits on a hill top and has beautiful mountain views. Many of the tables are right on the windows which makes for a great dining experience. We were delighted with the wonderful flavors and excellent cooking. The prices were very reasonable as well. We look forward to vising Carlos again... More

Great panoramic views over the Blue Ridge mountains from this Brazilian fusion restaurant. Good menu, good choice of wines by the glass although many options are on the creamy / heavy side.

We shared a huge Brazilian salad. My wife ordered a most excellent Chicken with artichoke on angel hair pasta in a delightful sauce, I had the Salmon and Shrimp on linguini in a very good sauce. I had a Bombay Sapphire martini (properly made: shaken not stirred, most excellent!). Lunch was leisurely 2 hours inside with a table overlooking the... More

My wife planned visit for my birthday April 8. Food never fails to dissapoint. Tasty, fresh. I ordered Beef 2001. Pastry chef made special cake for my b-day. Awesome! He even came to table to ask how we liked the cake. Friendly staff.

When my daughter and I feel like splurging for a little class when we do a mall trip to Valley View Mall, we eat here rather than one of the chain restaurants. The lunch specials are really no more expensive than chains and you get a better experience. This restaurant is on a hillside, so the view is nice. Although... More

We had dinner here last Saturday night with friends. Located on a high hilltop, the view from the front rooms and bar is lovely. Our cocktails were nicely prepared and service was polite and prompt. The pasta dishes are well prepared and enjoyable. Our one beef is with what accompanies the Pasta...the chicken and seafood topping many of the dishes... More

We were disappointed with our dining experience at Carlos from the food to the service. The salad is a small mixed green with shaved carrots on top. The house made Avocado dressing was good. A 9oz fillet with blue cheese is $36. It was ordered medium which was closer to medium rare. The side was terrible. The other dish was... More
